Opportunities for Preservation Jobs Stimulus Grow in Senate

The Senate began work on a draft $82 billion jobs stimulus bill this week which is being assembled by Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) and Senator Majority Whip Richard Durbin (D-IL) and features four broad initiatives: encouraging small business job creation, building infrastructure, spending on alternative and renewable energy, and aid for cash-strapped states. Although the exact proposals in each of those areas remain under discussion, an early draft of the bill circulating on the Hill centers on a oneyear tax credit for job creation that would cost about $20 billion. The remainder of the jobs stimulus would be spent on transportation, schools, energy-efficient retrofitting of homes and businesses, and state assistance to prevent layoffs of teachers.

However, the Senate leadership is intent on producing several more jobs bills throughout the year to keep the jobs issue on the front burner leading up to the mid-term elections, which may provide multiple opportunities for including a preservation jobs training proposal being developed by the National Trust and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Offices (NCSHPO) that would focus on energy-efficiency retrofits. Based on previous projections by NCSHPO, a $50 million federal stimulus could produce up to 15,000 preservation-related jobs in rehabilitation projects —including but not limited to energy-efficiency retrofits —as well as an additional $50 million in private investment. Congress last provided jobs stimulus funding for historic preservation in 1983.
