From the NTHP: Act Now to Save Historic Preservation Funding for Your Community
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Preservation Nation, Transportation Enhancements Program, Congress, transportation funding
Contributed By: National Trust for Historic Preservation

A letter from the National Trust for Historic Preservation:

Dear Preservationist, 
 
The U.S. Senate will vote soon on an extension of the existing transportation program (SAFETEA-LU).  It is likely a harmful amendment will be offered that would eliminate dedicated funding for the Transportation Enhancements (TE) program. This is unacceptable. The TE program is the largest single source of federal funding for historic preservation, and any change to dedicated funding would be devastating to preservation efforts across the country.  

Your action is needed immediately!  Please contact your U.S. Senators TODAY and ask them to vote NO on any amendment eliminating Transportation Enhancements.

Transportation Enhancements is a long-standing and proven program that creates jobs, improves quality of life, capitalizes on existing historic resources, and protects the environment. Eliminating dedicated funding would seriously jeopardize historic bridges and roads, scenic and historic highway programs, and historic downtown streetscape revitalization. 
 
It is crucial that we convince Congress to strike down any harmful amendment. Please act now.

Please visit PreservationNation for more information on the importance of the Transportation Enhancements program.

Take Action Now
