Appropriators Begin Negotiating Final FY'12 Spending and Historic Preservation Funding Levels
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Trust's Public Policy Department and Center for State and Local Policy
Website: http://www.preservationnation.org

The House approved a continuing resolution (CR) on Tuesday to temporarily fund the government through November 18th to avoid a government shutdown.   Unfortunately, the CR also contains a 1.5% across-the-board spending cut insisted on by the House leadership that will reduce the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) from $49.5 million to $48.758 million.  House and Senate appropriators are now in negotiations about finishing up FY'12 spending bills either in a year-ending omnibus or a series of mini-bus appropriations bills that would combine as many as three spending bills into several smaller packages.  

Whatever method lawmakers decide upon to move appropriations bills, final spending levels could be shaped by House GOP conservatives who continue to push for deeper spending cuts.  Appropriators are now working on compromise 302(b) spending levels for the individual appropriations bills that will determine the final overall level of spending in the omnibus package. The Senate version of Interior spending bill (which funds historic preservation) provides $1.8 billion more than its House counterpart. 

The outcome of these negotiations could be a factor in determining whether the HPF sustains any further cuts in the final CR for FY'12 which, in turn, could set a precedent for an even lower baseline of funding for the HPF in FY’13.
