Congress Approves Continuing Resolution (CR) But Preservation Spending Issues Unresolved
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Interior Appropriations Bill, National Trust for Historic Preservation, preservation funding, Save America’s Treasures

Congress passed a continuing resolution (HJ Res. 2) this week that will fund the government at FY’07 levels through November 16th.  The CR is virtually clean from extra spending with the exception of $5.2 billion for the Pentagon to purchase additional MRAP vehicles for the Iraq war.  However, President Bush has not relented in his veto threats over an additional $23 billion in additional aggregate spending for the 12 appropriations measures.  The House has passed all 12 spending bills while the Senate has finished only four.  The Senate hopes to finish the Commerce-Justice-State and Defense appropriations bills before the Columbus Day Recess.  However, the Interior Appropriations Bill, which contains historic preservation funding, is not on the Senate’s schedule as yet.  Preservationists hope that the Senate will pass the Interior Bill before the CR expires and have a proper conference on the significant differences in historic preservation spending between the House and Senate — particularly regarding Save America’s Treasures (SAT) funding.  The House approved $30 million for SAT but with a $10 million set-aside for the Preserve America program while the Senate approved a full $30 million for SAT grants with no set-aside.  The Senate would fund Preserve America grants from a separate account under National Recreation areas within the Interior Department budget.
