FY'12 Historic Preservation Funding May Face Squeeze in Year-End Omnibus Spending 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

FY'12 historic preservation funding is far from settled and a temporary continuing resolution (CR) will expire on November 18th.  Another CR is in the works which will run through December 16 to allow Congress time to  fashion a  year-end omnibus that will include the Interior bill and historic preservation funding.  Under the current CR, the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) is provided $48.758 million in the Interior spending bill, but the Senate Appropriations Committee has approved $64 million for the HPF -- including increases for State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices and restoration of Save America's Treasures (SAT)) grants.  

However, the Senate strategy to pass a series of “mini-bus” bills that combine three appropriations bills together into one package is running into serious trouble given a limited legislative schedule and the recess calendar for both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  

The possibility of a year-end CR that will include at least nine of the 12 remaining spending bills [including the Interior Bill] may leave preservation funding open to additional cuts if there is no major House-Senate conference on the bill.  In addition, House GOP conservatives are using the clock to push for lower spending levels in discretionary spending programs, approved earlier in the year in a House-passed budget resolution, which could go even lower with additional across-the-board spending cuts.
