Preserve America/Save America’s Treasures Authorization Passes House
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Preserve America, Save America's Treasures, National Trust for Historic Preservation, national historic preservation program
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy

The House passed the Preserve America (PA)/Save America’s Treasures authorization (SAT) bill (HR 3981) on July 7th. However, even with all of its tremendous success and support of these preservation programs, SAT and PA are unauthorized and tenuously funded from year-to-year though the annual appropriations process. The National Trust is urging Congress to authorize SAT and PA with a long-term programmatic and funding vision that would enable both programs to work in harmony with the other components of the national historic preservation program.

A Senate companion bill (S. 2262) is included in an omnibus lands package (S. 3213) containing 93 public lands bills. However, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has stated that the omnibus lands package bill is unlikely to be considered in the Senate until September.

To learn more about these bills, please visit http://www.preservationnation.org/take-action/advocacy-center/legislativebriefs/sat-and-preserve-america.html.
