Preservationists Brace for Further Spending Cuts and Hostile Amendments in FY'12 Interior Bill

The House Rules Committee took up consideration of the FY’12 Interior spending (HR 2584) bill late on Thursday in advance of floor action next Monday.  Preservationists are expecting a whole host of hostile amendments under an open rule approved by the committee, including one to defund the Antiquities Act, additional spending cuts proposed to public lands programs and land-holding agencies such as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), as well as an amendment to defund the National Conservation Landscape System (NLCS). The preservation community is still reeling from the Appropriations Committee markup of the bill which saw major cuts and spending reductions across-the-board, including a 9% cut in the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) from from $54.5 million to $49.5 million.  The committee bill also approved a 37% cut for national monuments in the National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS) to $20 million, a 47% cut ($8.251 million) in national heritage areas to $8.933 million, a 100% cut in battlefield protection grants (-$1.360 million), a 6.5% cut in the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation to $5.498 million, and a 17.6% cut in the National Park Service (NPS) construction budget to $151.1 million from FY’11 enacted levels.  The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) was cut by 80% ($-238.701 million) from FY’11 and was funded at just $61.833 million.  Funding for National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), which providing funding for historic sites and museums, was cut by 13% (-$20 million each) with each agency receiving $135 million.  It is unclear just how far the House may cut the Interior Bill for FY'12 but lawmakers seem to be taking their ques from the ongoing debt-ceiling negotiations between the White and the congressional leadership.
