Preservationists Mobilize to Support Disaster Assistance for Midwestern States in Continuing Resolution

The House Rules Committee approved a draft continuing resolution (CR) on Tuesday that includes $22.9 billion in disaster relief and funding for the federal government through March 6th. The legislative vehicle for the CR is a fiscal 2008 Homeland Security appropriations bill (HR 2638) that was passed by both chambers last year but never enacted. Its original language will be replaced by the fiscal 2009 provisions outlined by House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey (D-WI) essentially funding the federal government at FY 2008 passed funding levels. The new provisions will be considered on the floor as an amendment to the old bill and, in doing so, will allow the chambers to ping-pong the bill back and forth while preventing House lawmakers from offering other amendments.

In a related development, the National Trust is mobilizing its preservation advocates in the states of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Missouri asking them to contact Congress for support of additional funding of $35 million for flood disaster relief assistance grants from the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). Out of the $35 million request, $20 million would go to Iowa alone and $1.8 million would be provided for SHPO administrative costs. This funding would be used for the preservation, rehabilitation, stabilization, and repair of historic properties listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places and to be distributed through the SHPOs in the affected states.
