Bill Introduced in Senate Would Remove National Historic Preservation Act Protections from Federal Projects in Rural Areas (Preservation Action)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Preservation Action
Website: http://preservationaction.org

From Preservation Action:

Before departing for the August recess, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), and Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) introduced the the Paving the Way for Rural Communities of 2019 Act, S. 2430. The bill would remove federal requirements in the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, the Endangered Species Act of 1973, and the National Historic Preservation Act from federally funded projects or activities in any area of the country that's not part of a metropolitan statistical area.

This bill threatens historic resources in rural communities by undermining the protections of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), including Section 106. Section 106 of the NHPA requires Federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties, provide the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) with a reasonable opportunity to comment, and consult with State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices. This process allows for local input from states and local communities on the potential impact of federal projects. Side stepping this consultation would allow federal agencies to make unilateral decisions that could negatively impact a state, its residents and their historic resources.

S. 2430 was referred to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. 

Preservation Action opposes this harmful and unnecessary legislation. Stay tuned to Preservation Action for more information as we continue to monitor this bill.
