Georgia Legislature Proposes Major cuts for Historic Preservation in State Budget
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Georgia House budget, historic preservation funding, Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Archaeological Protection and Education Program
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy
Website: http://www.nthp.org

The National Trust is urging its Georgia membership and preservation advocates in the state to contact their Representatives and Senators in opposition to proposed budget cuts to the Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

The Georgia House budget for FY 2010 cuts $279,195 from the Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The cut would gut the state’s Archaeological Protection and Education Program, resulting in:

  • substantial delay of federal stimulus projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act as well as other federally funded or permitted development projects that must be reviewed and processed by HPD under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act;
  • elimination of three positions, including the state archaeologist;
  • elimination of ongoing legally-required surveys for projects on DNR lands that would then have to be contracted out at an estimated cost of $1.09 million per year;
  • elimination of funding for storage of the state’s priceless (and publicly-owned) artifact collections recovered from state lands;
  • elimination of Federally-mandated American Indian consultations; and
  • elimination of technical assistance to state agencies and citizens, which included over 500 communities across Georgia last year.
