Preservation Funding in FY’11 Remains Uncertain

Preservation funding in FY’11 remains uncertain as negotiations between the White House and the House leadership teetered on the brink of collapse this week in the attempt to find a level of spending cuts for FY’11 appropriations that congressional leaders can sell in both chambers.  Speaker Boehner rejected  $33 billion as the compromise level for cutting spending for the remainder of the year, which prompted the House to begin preparing another week-long continuing resolution (CR) with an additional $12 billion in cuts and controversial policy riders. 

The House passed this latest CR on Thursday by a vote of 247-181 but President Obama has already stated he would veto the bill, even if it somehow managed to pass the Senate.  Lawmakers have until midnight on Friday to make a deal in order to avoid a government shutdown.  Under the current continuing resolution (CR), historic preservation is funded at the FY’10 level of $54.5 million for both State and Tribal historic preservation offices.  As previously reported, funding for the Save America’s Treasures (SAT) and Preserve America programs were eliminated in previous versions of the CR and are unlikely to be restored in any final deal on spending.
