National Trust Joins Chorus of Opposition to Department of Homeland Security Waivers from Federal Preservation Laws
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 Natural Resources Committee held a markup of pending bills on Wednesday and approved HR 1505, the “National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act", which provides a blanket exemption for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from a number federal statutues – including the National Historic Preservation Act and the 1906 Antiquities Act -- in carrying out border security enforcement activities.  The bill passed out of the Committee by a vote of 26-17. The Department of the Interior already has a 2006 programmatic agreement in place with DHS that addresses border enforcement concerns without negating crucial federal legal protections for historic and cultural resources, thus making the legislation unnecessary.  The National Trust has signed a national coalition letter in opposition to HR 1505 that was sent to the members of the House Natural Resources Committee.  The Trust and its public lands coalition partners are closely monitoring the bill's progress and will continue to oppose its passage in the House.
