Temporary Continuing Resolution Averts Government Shutdown but Save America's Treasures Funding Rescinded in the Process
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - The National Trust for Historic Preservation, Save America's Treasures, funding, State and Tribal Historic Preservation Office
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy

Congress passed a second temporary CR this week that includes $6 billion in cuts and will run through April 8th.  However, White House-led negotiations on a year-end deal for FY’11 spending appear to be at an impasse and House conservatives are anxious to conclude FY’11 spending with significant budget cuts passed earlier in the House and get on with crafting a FY12 budget.  This most recent CR eliminates $378 million from the Interior Department – including a rescission of $25 million of Save America's Treasures (SAT) funding.  Enactment of the CR could spell doom for SAT funding in FY’11 and greatly dim prospects for the program's survival in FY'12.  However, the National Trust is hoping to influence Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI), the chairman of the Senate Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, to reinstate at least minimal funding for SAT. In addition, Preserve America grants ($4.6 million) were also a casualty of the CR, which only provided FY'10 level funding ($54.5 million) for the State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices.
