A bipartisan package of more than 100 bills with provisions protecting and preserving our public lands and cultural resources is heading to the Senate floor, and we need your help to ensure its success.
The Natural Resources Management Act (S.47) would have wide-ranging impacts, including:
- Re-designating the Ocmulgee National Monument as a national historical park, expanding the park boundary, and providing for a resource study to evaluate archaeological resources;
- Reauthorizing the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Historic Preservation Program that funds preservation work at HBCU campuses;
- Expanding and re-designating the Reconstruction Era National Monument and creating a national network of Reconstruction-era sites that would commemorate the stories of African Americans in the South immediately following the Civil War;
- Permanently reauthorizing theLand and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), and more.
This legislative package reflects bipartisan, bicameral leadership and collaboration with the potential to be a huge boon for our cultural heritage.
