Transportation Enhancements Survive Multiple Attacks in FY'12 THUD Appropriations Bill
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/resources/newsletters/trustee-bulletin/Public-Policy-Weekly-Bulletin-2-1-1-2-2-3-21.html

Senate consideration of the FY’12 Transportation-HUD (THUD) Appropriations bill (S. 1596) this week continued what has been a steady assault on Transportation Enhancements (TE), the largest source of federal funding for historic preservation, this fall.  Previously, an amendment offered by Senator John McCain (R-AZ) to the THUD bill on October 19th, which would have prohibited obligation of any FY’12 transportation funding for seven TE categorical areas, was tabled by a 59-39 margin.  However, another amendment was offered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) that would redirect funding from TE activities toward bridge repair. 

The Trust openly opposed the Paul amendment and urged Senators who voted against the McCain amendment to also oppose this raid on TE funding.  Fortunately, the Paul amendment was defeated by a 38-60 vote on November 1st.  The Senate approved the bill shortly thereafter and began a conference on the House, which is not expected to be completed until the week of November 14th because of a scheduled Senate recess next week.  Unfortunately, more attacks on TE funding may be in the works as the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) committee begins a mark up of a two-year reauthorization of the surface transportation bill on November 9th.
