Preservation Caucus Letter Requests Appropriators to Restore SAT and HPF Funding
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Congressional Historic Preservation Caucus, Save America's Treasures, Preserve America, funding
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy
Website: http://www.nthp.org

A ‘Dear Colleague’ letter circulated by the Congressional Historic Preservation Caucus supporting the restoration of funding for the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) for FY’11 garnered 100 signatures this week. The Caucus letter requests that the House Subcommittee on Interior Appropriations provide $55 million for State Historic Preservation Offices; $12 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices; $25 million for Save America's Treasures; and $4.6 million for Preserve America. President Obama’s FY’11 budget zeroed out funding for both Save America’s Treasures (SAT) and Preserve America, a 31% cut in funding from FY’10.

In a related development, the Senate defeated an amendment (68-29) offered by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization bill (HR 1586) this week that proposed a two-year moratorium on earmarks for fiscal years 2010 and 2011 in the Senate. The earmarks debate has been a critical part of the discussion surrounding the restoration SAT funding, which typically sees half of its funding allocated as individual project earmarks. The vote came amid signs of signs of growing opposition in both Senate caucuses to impose further limits on earmarks because eliminating spending for lawmakers’ pet projects has not proven to actually reduce overall spending in the underlying spending bills. However, GOP leaders in the House are pressing forward with implementation of a strict unilateral ban on earmarks — “including tax- and tariff-related as well as those made for defense, transportation and other authorizing bills” — in that chamber for its conference members.
