Second CR Needed to Pass Year-End Omnibus Appropriations and Historic Preservation Funding for FY’08

House Democrats are expected to meet the President’s terms on discretionary budget caps in an 11 bill omnibus (including Interior and historic preservation funding) to ensure completion of the appropriations process this year, but not without the help of a second continuing resolution (CR) that will fund the federal government through December 21st.

However, the omnibus has been repeatedly subject to veto threats by President Bush over any additional spending over his discretionary spending cap of $933 billion, despite Republican Senators’ willingness to compromise with Democrats on additional spending over and above the cap. To ensure completion of the appropriations process this year and meet the President’s cap, lawmakers will have to cut $750 million from Interior programs. In addition, earmarks would likely be targeted to help meet the projected Interior cut and match the President’s overall funding level, which could spell trouble for the Save America’s Treasures (SAT) program because lawmakers typically earmark 50% of SAT funding. However, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has stated he wishes to preserve most earmarks, which is hopefully good news for SAT grants.

The National Trust supports an appropriation of $30 million for the highly successful and congressionally-popular SAT program in FY’08. To date, over $350 million in public-private funds has been raised to save our nation’s treasures through SAT grants. These grants help fund the preservation and/or conservation work on nationally significant intellectual and cultural artifacts/collections and nationally significant historic structures and sites.
