Santorum introduced the National Weather Service Duties Act of 2005   which aimed to prohibit the National Weather Service from releasing weather data to the public without charge where private-sector entities perform the same function commercially.  The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association was organizing a lobbying effort in opposition to the legislation,  but it never passed committee.  The motivations surrounding the bill were controversial, as employees of AccuWeather , a commercial weather company based in Pennsylvania, donated $10,500 to Santorum and his PAC.  The liberal advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington cited the bill as one of several reasons for listing Santorum as one of its "most corrupt politicians".  In support of the bill, Santorum criticized the National Weather Service in September 2005, saying its evacuation warnings for Hurricane Katrina were "insufficient".
