Committee Blow Up May Delay FY’09 Appropriations Cycle and Preservation Funding Decisions
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Interior Bill, National Trust for Historic Preservation, National Preservation Program

A major flare-up in full Appropriations Committee markup on Thursday between chairman David Obey (D-WI) and Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA) over an energy amendment may have scuttled the appropriations process for the remainder of the year and delayed funding decisions for the national preservation program.

Rep. Lewis attempted to bring up the Interior Bill for the purpose of pushing his OCS drilling amendment instead of the Labor-HHS spending bill as scheduled during the markup, which resulted in chairman Obey promptly adjourning the committee proceedings and declaring “we’ve probably had our last meeting of the year and this will go on to a continuing resolution (CR).” While it is possible that tempers may cool over the July 4th recess and the markups might resume next month, it is more likely that members will take the path of least resistance and go the CR route. The Interior Bill, which governs historic preservation program spending, is the most contentious of the appropriations bill this season because of the off-shore drilling controversies that have sprung up in the wake of rocketing oil prices.

The National Trust and its partners are continuing to lobby for major funding increases for the national preservation program. The House Subcommittee on Interior and the Environment recently approved $82 million for the Historic Preservation Fund to date.
