Preserve America and Save America’s Treasures Authorization Bill Approved by House Natural Resources Committee

The House Natural Resources Committee marked up and approved with amendments a bill (H.R. 3981) authorizing the Preserve America (PA) and Save America’s Treasures (SAT) programs on June 11th. The three amendments, approved by voice vote, included:

  • A substitute amendment from Natural Resources National Parks, Forests and Public Lands Subcommittee Chairman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), which made technical changes and brought the bill in line with language approved by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee in the Senate companion bill (S. 2262), capping the authorization for PA at $25 million and SAT at $50 million annually.
  • An amendment from Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) which set the authorizations from FY09-FY13. Bishop said allowing the authorizations to expire would help Congress maintain proper oversight.
  • A second amendment from Rep. Bishop prohibited any funds in the bill from being used to create a or study a National Heritage Area, the multi-state areas of conservation and historic preservation that many Republicans from western states have derided as improper land grabs by the federal government.

In previous testimony before Congress the National Trust has emphasized and highlighted the synergy between the PA and SAT programs in saving historic and cultural resources, but also noted that even with all of the tremendous success and support for these programs they remain unauthorized and are tenuously funded from year-to-year though the annual appropriations process.
