Preservation Action, Legislative Update
Volume 15, Number 18 – May 4, 2012

Transportation Conference Committee to Meet Next Week

On Tuesday of next week, the Conference Committee charged with reconciling the House and Senate passed transportation proposals is scheduled to meet. As we have been reporting, neither the House nor the Senate bills are perfect and contain provisions troubling for preservationists. A side-by-side analysis can be found here.

Preservation Action and its partners are putting together an advocacy strategy for members of the Conference Committee to try to positively influence final legislation. Our primary concerns continue to be:

  • Proposal to permit Section 106 to be a substitute for 4(f) review. These reviews are different and are meant to complement each other – one requires the consideration of impacts on historic resources, and the other measures of protection.
  • Proposed exemption from review for projects completed as a result of a “disaster” or “emergency.” Exemption from review as a result of an even such as Hurricane Katrina would lead to uninformed decision-making.
  • Proposed exemption from review of properties sold or leased (acquired with federal funds) if they are not listed on the National Register. At the very least the exmption should not cover properties eligible for listing as well.
  • The continued ability to use Transportation Enhancement funding for historic preservation – the largest single federal source of funding for historic preservation.
Tax Credit Coalition Launches Mapping Tool

After months of compiling data from the National Park Service, the Historic Tax Credit Coalition (HTCC) has revealed the Historic Tax Credit (HTC) Project Map, provided by PolicyMap. The interactive map provides information, including year, cost, congressional district, and exact location, for 8,500 HTC projects completed between October 2001 and September 2011. This information is a huge boon to advocates looking for district specific information to share with their legislators. We encourage you all to use this tool and share the information with your policy makers. To access the map, click here.

Preservation Action, Legislative Update
Volume 17, Number 22, May 30, 2014 →

Military LAND Act awaits Senate Floor Action

As the Senate returns from a District work period, preservationists are following consideration of the Defense Reauthorization legislation. Last week the Senate passed its National Defense Authorization bill.  And the bill will likely go to the full Senate for a Floor vote soon. The House of Representatives passed version of the National Defense Authorization includes the Military LAND Act as Section 2816.

After the Senate completes consideration of their Defense bill, the House and Senate Armed Services Committees will meet on a conference report for a final bill.

Preservationists are urging that the final Defense Authorization not include the Military LAND Act as the provision is not necessary. There is nothing in the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 that imposes any legal constraint on federal agencies to protect the interests of national security.

Department of Defense and National Park Service testified against the bill. Preservation Action and partner organizations oppose the bill. Preservationists are circulating a one-pager that outlines opposition to the bill. To date, nine organizations have signed on.

FY 2015 HPF Appropriations

Senate Appropriators received testimony on the Department of Interior’s FY 2015 budget.  Preservation Action and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers presented written testimony in support of the Department of Interior’s FY 2015 $2.6 billion budget for the National Park Service (NPS) and its historic preservation programs.

Support PAF in the last days of Preservation Month

Where has Preservation Month taken you? To a National Historic Landmark, a historic tax credit project that rehabilitated a beautiful building, a restaurant or hotel or office space that is reviving the economy of a neighborhood, or just a cool new use for an old building – or a place outdoors, a natural landmark that makes you feel good.

Historic sites, tax credit projects, and protected heritage areas and landscapes are all created, funded and supported best by a strong federal historic preservation program – a charge Preservation Action addresses each and every day as the grassroots voice of preservation in DC.

House Appropriations Committee Passes FY 2015 Interior Appropriations Bill

The full House Appropriations Committee passed the FY 2015 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill in a 29-19 vote. Democrats opposed the bill as it maintains severe cuts in the EPA’s appropriation. The bill now moves to the House floor. Republican and and Democratic appropriators crafted a manager’s amendment, which restored funding to the Heritage Partnership Program to FY 2014 enacted levels. The bill originally called for $9.2 million in funding for the program, a nearly $9 million decrease. Now the bill is being restored to $18.29 million, FY 2014 enacted levels. The Heritage Partnership Program provides grants and technical assistance to National Heritage Areas (NHA).

The bill also takes significant steps to support the National Park Service’s (NPS) Centennial Initiative, in preparation for NPS to celebrate their 100 year anniversary in 2016.

The bill includes $56.41 million for the Historic Preservation Fund, the same levels as FY 2014 enacted–$47.42 million for State Historic Preservation Offices, $8.98 million for Tribal Historic Preservation Offices and $500,000 in grants for underserved communities. The bill also included the following funding levels:

$18.29 million for the Heritage Partnership Program
$30 million for the National Park Service Centenial Celebration
$10 million for the National Park Service Centennial Challenge

Rep. Kildee’s Request for Hardest Hit Funds Could Put 106 Review at Risk

Kildee-MI05-picRep. Dan Kildee (D-MI) asked Secretary Treasury Jack Lew to allow a portion of a 2010 award given to Michigan under the federal Hardest Hit Fund to be used to remove blighted commercial buildings. If allowed by the Treasury Department, the removal of these blighted commercial buildings may avoid the Section 106 or the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) review process.

Last year the Treasury Department issued a waiver allowing $100 million from the original $498 million award to be used for removal of abandoned residential properties. This decision avoided the Section 106 review process and SHPO review of demolitions.

Rep. Kildee, who played a key role in the last Treasury Department waiver, is requesting that this waiver be used once again to allow the removal of vacant commercial properties. Detroit’s Blight Removal Task Force estimated there were 2,056 vacant commercial structures in the city. Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) has restricted demolition in any designated National Register districts, but allowed it in “eligible” districts. Preservation Action is strongly opposed to any blight removal without Section 106 review.

House Votes to Make Land Conservation Tax Credit Permanent

The House passed the Charities Package in a 277-130 vote, which included H.R. 2807. H.R. 2807 would reinstate and make permanent tax incentives for land conservation. This bill helps to protect farmland, rangeland, woodlands and other open spaces by providing landowners an incentive to permanently protect their land from development. This important piece of legislation has been a priority of the Land Trust Alliance and represents a huge victory for them and other conservationists. The bill now moves to the Senate.

Historic Preservation Tax Credits in North Carolina at Risk

Historic tax credits (HTC) are still at risk in North Carolina. Preservationists continue to urge state House and Senate members to include HTC’s in the final budget. The budget passed by the North Carolina House does not include historic preservation tax credits, while the Senate version does. Currently the two chambers are in conference trying to reconcile the differences between the two budgets. It remains uncertain if HTC’s will be included in the final budget.

According to the N.C Department of Commerce, the historic preservation tax credit contributes $124.5 million annually to the state gross domestic product and approximately 2,190 jobs. Additionally, North Carolina ranked third nationally in terms of its usage of historic preservation tax credits in 2011.

We ask North Carolina preservationists to contact their state Senators and House members and encourage them to include historic preservation tax credits in the final budget. View a sample letter to send below

Sample Letter

Dear _________,

I write to request your support for North Carolina’s Historic Rehabilitation Investment Program. As state Senate and House members attempt to reconcile differences between the FY 2015 budgets passed by each chamber, it is critical to include funding for historic preservation tax credits. In our state historic preservation has proved to be a success in driving economic development and job creation, and, importantly, preserving our heritage.

Historic tax credits provide a strong incentive for developers to preserve and renovate historic buildings instead of demolishing and building anew. They help create vibrant communities and can act as a catalyst for economic development. According to the N.C Department of Commerce, the historic preservation tax credit contributes $124.5 million annually to the state gross domestic product and approximately 2,190 jobs.

The Historic Rehabilitation Investment Program is good for our local economy and helps preserve North Carolina’s heritage. I encourage you to support historic preservation tax credits in North Carolina and make sure the program is included in the final budget.Thank you for considering this urgent request.

Sincerely,

___________
