Congress Approves Continuing Resolution (CR) with FY’10 Level Funding for Historic Preservation
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy
Website: http://www.nthp.org

Congress adjourned for the mid-term election more than a week earlier than scheduled but not before passing a continuing resolution (CR) that will keep the federal government running through December 3rd.  Congress will return for a lame duck session on November 15th to finally settle FY’11 appropriations, including preservation funding, in a year-ending omnibus spending bill. In the interim, the CR provides FY 2010 level funding for on-going programs, including the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF).  The HPF received $79.5 million in FY 2010, including $46.5 million for State Historic Preservation Offices, $8.0 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, $25 million for Save America’s Treasures (SAT), and $4.6 million for the Preserve America program.  Although the passage of the CR is generally good news, an amendment sponsored by Sen. John Thune (R-SD), which would have cut funding levels in the CR by five percent across the board, narrowly failed to pass by a vote of 48-51.  Another Senate amendment offered by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) to extend the CR until February 4th was also defeated, thereby avoiding the newly-seated 112th Congress from settling FY'11 preservation funding.
