Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Passes House on Second Attempt with Added Property Rights Concessions

On its second try, the House passed legislation Wednesday that would designate a national heritage area in Santa Cruz, Ariz. The bill (HR 324) passed 281-142 after returning to the floor under a closed rule. Earlier this month, the bill fell 14 votes short of the two-thirds necessary to pass under the suspension of the rules. Sponsored by Rep. Raul Grijalva, HR 324 was initially defeated over GOP concerns about the effects the heritage area designation on private property rights and homeland security, noting that the heritage area includes some of the most heavily-traveled routes for narcotics smuggling and human trafficking. Rep. Grijalva said the area’s designation is necessaryto protect the area’s cultural and archaeological resources which are important to the descendants of Spanish, Mexican and American territorial settlers who helped culturally shape the area.

GOP members did win concessions from the Democrats when they succeeded in adding a provision to protect private property rights to the bill. The property rights amendment states that: 1) “no privately owned property shall be preserved, conserved, or promoted by the management plan for the National Heritage Area until the owner of that private property has been notified in writing by the management entity and has given written consent for such preservation, conservation, or promotion to the management entity; and 2) any owner of private property included within the boundary of the National Heritage Area shall have their property immediately removed from within the boundary by submitting a written request to the management entity.”
