Senate Subcommittee on National Parks Holds Hearing on Slate of Historic Preservation Bills
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Trust's Public Policy Department and Center for State and Local Policy
Website: http://www.preservationnation.org

The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources' Subcommittee on National Parks held a hearing on a number of bills this week relating to historic preservation, including the Buffalo Soldiers in the National Parks Study Act, the Minuteman Missile National Historical Park Act, the Coltsville National Historical Park Act and the Fort Monroe National Historical Park Establishment Act of 2011.  Each of these bills was well received by the Committee and there were no opposition witnesses offered by the Minority.  

The Buffalo Soldiers Study would focus on the role of Buffalo Soldiers in California and the Minuteman bill is simply an expansion of the boundaries to the existing park in South Dakota.  

The Coltsville bill is a revamped version of a bill offered in the previous session of Congress that has been changed to address issues of concern to the National Park Service.  It would establish a new National Park in Hartford, Connecticut in one of America’s first industrial towns, now famous for the manufacturing of the Colt revolver.  

In addition, the National Park Service and a representative from the Virginia Governor’s office offered favorable testimony for the establishment of a Historical National Park at Fort Monroe, which is supported by the National Trust.
