Senate Interior Appropriations Bill Passes Committee, Includes Significant Increases for Historic Preservation Fund

From Preservation Action:

This week, the Senate Appropriations Committee released the their FY20 Interior and Environment Appropriations Bill. This bill includes $113.16 million for the Historic Preservation Fund, an increase of $10.5 million over FY19 enacted levels. While this is below the funding levels included in the House bill, it still represents a significant increase for the Historic Preservation Fund. During his opening statement, Vice Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT), specifically highlighted the increase for the Historic Revitalization Grants program. The full breakdown is below.

SHPOs: $52.675 Million ($3 Million above FY19 Levels)
THPOs: $13.735 Million ($2 Million above FY19 Levels)
Civil Rights Movement Grants: $15.5 Million ($1 Million above FY19 Levels)
Save America's Treasures: $14 Million ($1 Million above FY19 Levels)
HBCU Preservation Program: $9 Million ($1 Million above FY19 Enacted Levels)
Historic Revitalization Grants: $7.5 Million ($2.5 Million above FY19 Enacted Levels)
Underrepresented Communities Grants: $750,000 (Equal to FY19 Enacted Levels)

Total: $113.16 Million ($10.5 Million above FY19 Enacted Levels)

Like the House bill, the Senate Interior Appropriations bill included strong language expressing concern over the proposed rule changes to the National Register of Historic Places. The report language recognizes the concerns expressed by the historic preservation community and says the Committee is "troubled" by the lack of consultation with interested stakeholders and especially the lack of meaningful consultation with Tribes.

The Senate Interior Appropriations bill passed the the full Committee on Thursday. The bill now moves to the Senate floor for consideration. After passage, the Senate will go into conference with the House to resolve the differences between the two bills. Meanwhile, with the end of the fiscal year quickly approaching on Monday, the House and Senate passed a short term continuing resolution, avoiding a shutdown and funding the government through November 21st. President Trump is expected to sign the stop-gap funding measure.
