Antiquities Act Amendment Expected in Appropriations Markup in July
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Antiquities Act, Congress, Appropriations, public policy
Contributed By: National Trust's Public Policy Department and Center for State and Local Policy

The July 6th appropriations subcommittee markup will also be the first salvo in a battle to preserve the Antiquities Act of 1906, the most powerful tool the President has in preserving threatened natural and cultural landmarks.  House Appropriations Committee member  Dennis Rehberg (R-MT) is expected to offer an amendment to the draft FY’12 Interior appropriations bill that could either defund, diminish or destroy the Antiquities Act of 1906. Rep. Rehberg has previously introduced stand-alone legislation to prohibit the monument proclamations under the 1906 Act in the state of Montana.  Similarly, an amendment was offered by Rep. Dean Heller (R-NV) to defund the Antiquities Act during consideration of the FY’11 continuing resolution (CR) in March, which was defeated by only four votes in the House.  If passed in subcommittee, the Rehberg amendment could be difficult to extract as odds are that all FY'12 spending bills may be rolled into an omnibus spending bill because of the uncertainty created by the debt-ceiling talks and potential deficit reduction agreement.
