      permanent settlers to Whidbey Island, quickly became an important

    with the appropriate State and local units of general government,
    shall formulate a comprehensive plan for the protection,
    preservation, and interpretation of the reserve.  The plan shall

    government having jurisdiction over land use within the reserve
    have enacted such zoning ordinances or other land use controls
    which in the judgment of the Secretary will protect and preserve
    the historic and natural features of the area in accordance with

      preservation, and rehabilitation of the reserve except that no
      such grant may exceed 50 per centum of the estimated annual cost,
      as determined by the Secretary, of such operation and
      maintenance.
      ''(d) (Acquisition of property; administration by Secretary) The
    Secretary is authorized to acquire such lands and interests as he
    determines are necessary to accomplish the purposes of this section
    by donation, purchase with donated or appropriated funds, or

    title to any land without the consent of the owner.  The Secretary
    shall, in addition, give prompt and careful consideration to any
    offer made by an individual owning property within the historic
    district to sell such property, if such individual notifies the
    Secretary that the continued ownership of such property is causing,
    or would result in, undue hardship.

    responsibility for management and administration remains with the
    United States, be administered by the Secretary subject to the
    provisions of the Act of August 25, 1916 (39 Stat. 535) (sections
    1, 2, 3, and 4 of this title), as amended and supplemented, and in
    a manner consistent with the purpose of this section.

    withdrawal; management by Secretary) If, after the transfer of
    management and administration of any lands pursuant to subsection

    Sec. 463. National Park System Advisory Board
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) Establishment; composition; duties
      There is hereby established a National Park System Advisory
    Board, whose purpose shall be to advise the Director of the
    National Park Service on matters relating to the National Park
    Service, the National Park System, and programs administered by the
    National Park Service. The Board shall advise the Director on
    matters submitted to the Board by the Director as well as any other
    issues identified by the Board. Members of the Board shall be
    appointed on a staggered term basis by the Secretary for a term not
    to exceed 4 years and shall serve at the pleasure of the Secretary.
    The Board shall be comprised of no more than 12 persons, appointed
    from among citizens of the United States having a demonstrated
    commitment to the mission of the National Park Service. Board
    members shall be selected to represent various geographic regions,
    including each of the administrative regions of the National Park
    Service. At least 6 of the members shall have outstanding expertise
    in 1 or more of the following fields: history, archeology,
    anthropology, historical or landscape architecture, biology,
    ecology, geology, marine science, or social science.  At least 4 of
    the members shall have outstanding expertise and prior experience
    in the management of national or State parks or protected areas, or
    national or cultural resources management.  The remaining members
    shall have outstanding expertise in 1 or more of the areas
    described above or in another professional or scientific
    discipline, such as financial management, recreation use
    management, land use planning or business management, important to
    the mission of the National Park Service. At least 1 individual
    shall be a locally elected official from an area adjacent to a
    park.  The Board shall hold its first meeting by no later than 60
    days after the date on which all members of the Advisory Board who
    are to be appointed have been appointed.  Any vacancy in the Board
    shall not affect its powers, but shall be filled in the same manner
    in which the original appointment was made.  The Board may adopt
    such rules as may be necessary to establish its procedures and to
    govern the manner of its operations, organization, and personnel.
    All members of the Board shall be reimbursed for travel and per
    diem in lieu of subsistence expenses during the performance of
    duties of the Board while away from home or their regular place of
    business, in accordance with subchapter 1 (FOOTNOTE 1) of chapter
    57 of title 5. With the exception of travel and per diem as noted
    above, a member of the Board who is otherwise an officer or
    employee of the United States Government shall serve on the Board
    without additional compensation.  It shall be the duty of such
    board to advise the Secretary on matters relating to the National
    Park System, to other related areas, and to the administration of
    sections 461 to 467 of this title, including but not limited to
    matters submitted to it for consideration by the Secretary, but it
    shall not be required to recommend as to the suitability or
    desirability of surplus real and related personal property for use
    as an historic monument.  Such board shall also provide
    recommendations on the designation of national historic landmarks
    and national natural landmarks.  Such board is strongly encouraged
    to consult with the major scholarly and professional organizations
    in the appropriate disciplines in making such recommendations.
       (FOOTNOTE 1) So in original.  Probably should be subchapter
    ''I''.
    (b) Staff; applicability of Federal law
      (1) The Secretary is authorized to hire 2 full-time staffers to
    meet the needs of the Advisory Board.
      (2) Service of an individual as a member of the Board shall not
    be considered as service or employment bringing such individual
    within the provisions of any Federal law relating to conflicts of
    interest or otherwise imposing restrictions, requirements, or
    penalties in relation to the employment of persons, the performance
    of services, or the payment or receipt of compensation in
    connection with claims, proceedings, or matters involving the
    United States. Service as a member of the Board, or as an employee
    of the Board, shall not be considered service in an appointive or
    elective position in the Government for purposes of section 8344 of
    title 5 or comparable provisions of Federal law.
    (c) Authority of Board
      (1) Upon request of the Director, the Board is authorized to -
        (A) hold such hearings and sit and act at such times,
        (B) take such testimony,
        (C) have such printing and binding done,
        (D) enter into such contracts and other arrangements. (FOOTNOTE
      2)
       (FOOTNOTE 2) So in original.  The period probably should be a
    comma.
        (E) make such expenditures, and
        (F) take such other actions, as the Board may deem advisable.
      Any member of the Board may administer oaths or affirmations to
      witnesses appearing before the Board.
      (2) The Board may establish committees or subcommittees.  Any
    such subcommittees or committees shall be chaired by a voting
    member of the Board.
    (d) Federal Advisory Committee Act
      The provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act shall apply
    to the Board established under this section with the exception of
    section 14(b).
    (e) Cooperation of Federal agencies; use of mails
      (1) The Board is authorized to secure directly from any office,
    department, agency, establishment, or instrumentality of the
    Federal Government such information as the Board may require for
    the purpose of this section, and each such officer, department,
    agency, establishment, or instrumentality is authorized and
    directed to furnish, to the extent permitted by law, such
    information, suggestions, estimates, and statistics directly to the
    Board, upon request made by a member of the Board.
      (2) Upon the request of the Board, the head of any Federal
    department, agency, or instrumentality is authorized to make any of
    the facilities and services of such department, agency, or
    instrumentality to the Board, on a nonreimbursable basis, to assist
    the Board in carrying out its duties under this section.
      (3) The Board may use the United States mails in the same manner
    and under the same conditions as other departments and agencies in
    the United States.
    (f) Termination
      The National Park System Advisory Board shall continue to exist
    until January 1, 2006. The provisions of section 14(b) of the
    Federal Advisory Committee Act (the Act of October 6, 1972; 86
    Stat. 776) are hereby waived with respect to the Board, but in all
    other respects, it shall be subject to the provisions of the
    Federal Advisory Committee Act.
    (g) National Park Service Advisory Council
      There is hereby established the National Park Service Advisory
    Council (hereafter in this section referred to as the ''advisory
    council'') which shall provide advice and counsel to the National
    Park System Advisory Board. Membership on the advisory council
    shall be limited to those individuals whose term on the advisory
    board has expired.  Such individuals may serve as long as they
    remain active except that not more than 12 members may serve on the
    advisory council at any one time.  Members of the advisory council
    shall not have a vote on the National Park System Advisory Board.
    Members of the advisory council shall receive no salary but may be
    paid expenses incidental to travel when engaged in discharging
    their duties as members.  Initially, the Secretary shall choose 12
    former members of the Advisory Board to constitute the advisory
    council.  In so doing, the Secretary shall consider their
    professional expertise and demonstrated commitment to the National
    Park System and to the Advisory Board.

    Sec. 467b. Survey by Secretary of the Interior of sites for
        commemoration of former Presidents of the United States
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) Authority to conduct survey
      The Secretary of the Interior (hereinafter referred to as the
    ''Secretary'') is authorized to conduct a survey of sites which he
    deems exhibit qualities most appropriate for the commemoration of
    each former President of the United States. The survey may include
    sites associated with the deeds, leadership, or lifework of a
    former President, and it may identify sites or structures
    historically unrelated to a former President but which may be
    suitable as a memorial to honor such President.
    (b) Preparation and transmittal to Congressional committees of
        reports on individual sites and structures
      The Secretary shall, from time to time, prepare and transmit to
    the Committee on Natural Resources of the House of Representatives
    and the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources of the United
    States Senate reports on individual sites and structures identified
    in the survey referred to in subsection (a) of this section,
    together with his recommendation as to whether such site or
    structure is suitable for establishment as a national historic site
    or national memorial to commemorate a former President. Each such
    report shall include pertinent information with respect to the need
    for acquisition of lands and interests therein, the development of
    facilities, and the operation and maintenance of the site or
    structure and the estimated cost thereof.  If during the six-month
    period following the transmittal of a report pursuant to this
    subsection neither Committee has by vote of a majority of its
    members disapproved a recommendation of the Secretary that a site
    or structure is suitable for establishment as a national historic
    site, the Secretary may thereafter by appropriate order establish
    the same as a national historic site, including the lands and
    interests therein identified in the report accompanying his
    recommendation.  The Secretary may acquire the lands and interests
    therein by donation, purchase with donated or appropriated funds,
    transfer from any other Federal agency, or exchange, and he shall
    administer the site in accordance with sections 1, 2, 3, and 4 of
    this title, as amended and supplemented, and sections 461 to 467 of
    this title, as amended.
    (c) Prohibited statutory constructions
      Nothing in this section shall be construed as diminishing the
    authority of the Secretary under sections 461 to 467 of this title
    or as authorizing the Secretary to establish any national memorial,
    creation of which is hereby expressly reserved to the Congress.
    (d) Authorization of appropriations
      There is authorized to be appropriated such sums as may be
    necessary to carry out the provisions of this section.

    Sec. 469l. Findings and purposes
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) Findings
      The Congress finds the following:
        (1) The Underground Railroad, which flourished from the end of
      the 18th century to the end of the Civil War, was one of the most
      significant expressions of the American civil rights movement
      during its evolution over more than three centuries.
        (2) The Underground Railroad bridged the divides of race,
      religion, sectional differences, and nationality; spanned State
      lines and international borders; and joined the American ideals
      of liberty and freedom expressed in the Declaration of
      Independence and the Constitution to the extraordinary actions of
      ordinary men and women working in common purpose to free a
      people.
        (3) Pursuant to title VI of Public Law 101-628 (16 U.S.C. 1a-5
      note; 104 Stat. 4495), the Underground Railroad Advisory
      Committee conducted a study of the appropriate means of
      establishing an enduring national commemorative Underground
      Railroad program of education, example, reflection, and
      reconciliation.
        (4) The Underground Railroad Advisory Committee found that -
          (A) although a few elements of the Underground Railroad story
        are represented in existing National Park Service units and
        other sites, many sites are in imminent danger of being lost or
        destroyed, and many important resource types are not adequately
        represented and protected;
          (B) there are many important sites which have high potential
        for preservation and visitor use in 29 States, the District of
        Columbia, and the Virgin Islands;
          (C) no single site or route completely reflects and
        characterizes the Underground Railroad, since its story and
        associated resources involve networks and regions of the
        country rather than individual sites and trails; and
          (D) establishment of a variety of partnerships between the
        Federal Government and other levels of government and the
        private sector would be most appropriate for the protection and
        interpretation of the Underground Railroad.
        (5) The National Park Service can play a vital role in
      facilitating the national commemoration of the Underground
      Railroad.
        (6) The story and significance of the Underground Railroad can
      best engage the American people through a national program of the
      National Park Service that links historic buildings, structures,
      and sites; routes, geographic areas, and corridors; interpretive
      centers, museums, and institutions; and programs, activities,
      community projects, exhibits, and multimedia materials, in a
      manner that is both unified and flexible.
    (b) Purposes
      The purposes of this section and section 469l-1 of this title are
    the following:
        (1) To recognize the importance of the Underground Railroad,
      the sacrifices made by those who used the Underground Railroad in
      search of freedom from tyranny and oppression, and the sacrifices
      made by the people who helped them.
        (2) To authorize the National Park Service to coordinate and
      facilitate Federal and non-Federal activities to commemorate,
      honor, and interpret the history of the Underground Railroad, its
      significance as a crucial element in the evolution of the
      national civil rights movement, and its relevance in fostering
      the spirit of racial harmony and national reconciliation.

        program
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) In general
      The Secretary of the Interior (in this section and section 469l
    of this title referred to as the ''Secretary'') shall establish in
    the National Park Service a program to be known as the ''National
    Underground Railroad Network to Freedom'' (in this section and
    section 469l of this title referred to as the ''national
    network'').  Under the program, the Secretary shall -
        (1) produce and disseminate appropriate educational materials,
      such as handbooks, maps, interpretive guides, or electronic
      information;

    (b) Elements
      The national network shall encompass the following elements:
        (1) All units and programs of the National Park Service
      determined by the Secretary to pertain to the Underground
      Railroad.
        (2) Other Federal, State, local, and privately owned properties
      pertaining to the Underground Railroad that have a verifiable
      connection to the Underground Railroad and that are included on,
      or determined by the Secretary to be eligible for inclusion on,
      the National Register of Historic Places.
        (3) Other governmental and nongovernmental facilities and
      programs of an educational, research, or interpretive nature that
      are directly related to the Underground Railroad.
    (c) Cooperative agreements and memoranda of understanding
      To achieve the purposes of this section and section 469l of this
    title and to ensure effective coordination of the Federal and
    non-Federal elements of the national network referred to in
    subsection (b) of this section with National Park Service units and
    programs, the Secretary may enter into cooperative agreements and
    memoranda of understanding with, and provide technical assistance
    to -
        (1) the heads of other Federal agencies, States, localities,
      regional governmental bodies, and private entities; and
        (2) in cooperation with the Secretary of State, the governments
      of Canada, Mexico, and any appropriate country in the Caribbean.
    (d) Appropriations
      There are authorized to be appropriated to carry out this section
    and section 469l of this title not more than $500,000 for each
    fiscal year.  No amounts may be appropriated for the purposes of
    this section and section 469l of this title except to the Secretary
    for carrying out the responsibilities of the Secretary as set forth
    in subsection (a) of this section.

        policy
 
-STATUTE-
      (a) This subchapter may be cited as the ''National Historic
    Preservation Act''.
      (b) The Congress finds and declares that -
        (1) the spirit and direction of the Nation are founded upon and
      reflected in its historic heritage;
        (2) the historical and cultural foundations of the Nation
      should be preserved as a living part of our community life and
      development in order to give a sense of orientation to the
      American people;
        (3) historic properties significant to the Nation's heritage
      are being lost or substantially altered, often inadvertently,
      with increasing frequency;
        (4) the preservation of this irreplaceable heritage is in the
      public interest so that its vital legacy of cultural,
      educational, aesthetic, inspirational, economic, and energy
      benefits will be maintained and enriched for future generations
      of Americans;
        (5) in the face of ever-increasing extensions of urban centers,
      highways, and residential, commercial, and industrial
      developments, the present governmental and nongovernmental
      historic preservation programs and activities are inadequate to
      insure future generations a genuine opportunity to appreciate and
      enjoy the rich heritage of our Nation;
        (6) the increased knowledge of our historic resources, the
      establishment of better means of identifying and administering
      them, and the encouragement of their preservation will improve
      the planning and execution of Federal and federally assisted
      projects and will assist economic growth and development; and
        (7) although the major burdens of historic preservation have
      been borne and major efforts initiated by private agencies and
      individuals, and both should continue to play a vital role, it is
      nevertheless necessary and appropriate for the Federal Government
      to accelerate its historic preservation programs and activities,
      to give maximum encouragement to agencies and individuals
      undertaking preservation by private means, and to assist State
      and local governments and the National Trust for Historic
      Preservation in the United States to expand and accelerate their
      historic preservation programs and activities.

      Ex. Ord. No. 11593, May 13, 1971, 36 F.R. 8921, provided:
      By virtue of the authority vested in me as President of the
    United States and in furtherance of the purposes and policies of
    the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (83 Stat. 852, 42
    U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the National Historic Preservation Act of
    1966 (80 Stat. 915, 16 U.S.C. 470 et seq.), the Historic Sites Act
    of 1935 (49 Stat. 666, 16 U.S.C. 461 et seq.), and the Antiquities
    Act of 1906 (34 Stat. 225, 16 U.S.C. 431 et seq.), it is ordered as
    follows:
      Section 1. Policy. The Federal Government shall provide
    leadership in preserving, restoring and maintaining the historic
    and cultural environment of the Nation. Agencies of the executive
    branch of the Government (hereinafter referred to as ''Federal
    agencies'') shall (1) administer the cultural properties under
    their control in a spirit of stewardship and trusteeship for future
    generations, (2) initiate measures necessary to direct their
    policies, plans and programs in such a way that federally owned
    sites, structures, and objects of historical, architectural or
    archaeological significance are preserved, restored and maintained
    for the inspiration and benefit of the people, and (3), in
    consultation with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (16
    U.S.C. 470i), institute procedures to assure that Federal plans and
    programs contribute to the preservation and enhancement of
    non-federally owned sites, structures and objects of historical,
    architectural or archaeological significance.
      Sec. 2. Responsibilities of Federal agencies.  Consonant with the
    provisions of the acts cited in the first paragraph of this order,
    the heads of Federal agencies shall:
      (a) no later than July 1, 1973, with the advice of the Secretary
    of the Interior, and in cooperation with the liaison officer for
    historic preservation for the State or territory involved, locate,
    inventory, and nominate to the Secretary of the Interior all sites,
    buildings, districts, and objects under their jurisdiction or
    control that appear to qualify for listing on the National Register
    of Historic Places.
      (b) exercise caution during the interim period until inventories
    and evaluations required by subsection (a) are completed to assure
    that any federally owned property that might qualify for nomination
    is not inadvertently transferred, sold, demolished or substantially
    altered.  The agency head shall refer any questionable actions to
    the Secretary of the Interior for an opinion respecting the
    property's eligibility for inclusion on the National Register of
    Historic Places. The Secretary shall consult with the liaison
    officer for historic preservation for the State or territory
    involved in arriving at his opinion.  Where, after a reasonable
    period in which to review and evaluate the property, the Secretary
    determines that the property is likely to meet the criteria
    prescribed for listing on the National Register of Historic Places,
    the Federal agency head shall reconsider the proposal in light of
    national environmental and preservation policy.  Where, after such
    reconsideration, the Federal agency head proposes to transfer,
    sell, demolish or substantially alter the property he shall not act
    with respect to the property until the Advisory Council on Historic
    Preservation shall have been provided an opportunity to comment on
    the proposal.
      (c) initiate measures to assure that where as a result of Federal
    action or assistance a property listed on the National Register of
    Historic Places is to be substantially altered or demolished,
    timely steps be taken to make or have made records, including
    measured drawings, photographs and maps, of the property, and that
    copy of such records then be deposited in the Library of Congress
    as part of the Historic American Buildings Survey or Historic

    listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the
    development of viable plans to use such property in a manner

      Sec. 3. Responsibilities of the Secretary of the Interior. The
    Secretary of the Interior shall:

    Historic Places concerning federally owned properties proposed for
    sale, transfer, demolition or substantial alteration.
      (d) encourage State and Territorial liaison officers for historic
    preservation to furnish information upon request to Federal
    agencies regarding their properties which have been evaluated with
    respect to historic, architectural or archaeological significance
    and which as a result of such evaluations have not been found
    suitable for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

    assure that the historic character of such properties is preserved
    in rehabilitation, restoration, improvement, maintenance and repair
    of such properties.
      (h) review and comment upon Federal agency procedures submitted
    pursuant to section 2(e) of this order.               Richard Nixon.

    (a) National Register of Historic Places; designation of properties
        as historic landmarks; properties deemed included; criteria;
        nomination of properties by States, local governments or
        individuals; regulations; review of threats to properties
      (1)(A) The Secretary of the Interior is authorized to expand and
    maintain a National Register of Historic Places composed of
    districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects significant in
    American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and
    culture.  Notwithstanding section 1125(c) of title 15, buildings
    and structures on or eligible for inclusion on the National
    Register of Historic Places (either individually or as part of a
    historic district), or designated as an individual landmark or as a
    contributing building in a historic district by a unit of State or
    local government, may retain the name historically associated with
    the building or structure.
      (B) Properties meeting the criteria for National Historic
    Landmarks established pursuant to paragraph (2) shall be designated
    as ''National Historic Landmarks'' and included on the National
    Register, subject to the requirements of paragraph (6). All
    historic properties included on the National Register on December
    12, 1980, shall be deemed to be included on the National Register
    as of their initial listing for purposes of this subchapter.  All
    historic properties listed in the Federal Register of February 6,
    1979, as ''National Historic Landmarks'' or thereafter prior to the
    effective date of this Act are declared by Congress to be National
    Historic Landmarks of national historic significance as of their
    initial listing as such in the Federal Register for purposes of
    this subchapter and sections 461 to 467 of this title; except that
    in cases of National Historic Landmark districts for which no
    boundaries have been established, boundaries must first be
    published in the Federal Register.
      (2) The Secretary in consultation with national historical and
    archaeological associations, shall establish or revise criteria for
    properties to be included on the National Register and criteria for
    National Historic Landmarks, and shall also promulgate or revise
    regulations as may be necessary for -
        (A) nominating properties for inclusion in, and removal from,
      the National Register and the recommendation of properties by
      certified local governments;
        (B) designating properties as National Historic Landmarks and
      removing such designation;
        (C) considering appeals from such recommendations, nominations,
      removals, and designations (or any failure or refusal by a
      nominating authority to nominate or designate);
        (D) nominating historic properties for inclusion in the World
      Heritage List in accordance with the terms of the Convention
      concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural
      Heritage;
        (E) making determinations of eligibility of properties for
      inclusion on the National Register; and
        (F) notifying the owner of a property, any appropriate local
      governments, and the general public, when the property is being
      considered for inclusion on the National Register, for
      designation as a National Historic Landmark or for nomination to
      the World Heritage List.
      (3) Subject to the requirements of paragraph (6), any State which
    is carrying out a program approved under subsection (b) of this
    section, shall nominate to the Secretary properties which meet the
    criteria promulgated under subsection (a) of this section for
    inclusion on the National Register. Subject to paragraph (6), and
    any property nominated under this paragraph or under section
    470h-2(a)(2) of this title shall be included on the National
    Register on the date forty-five days after receipt by the Secretary
    of the nomination and the necessary documentation, unless the
    Secretary disapproves such nomination within such forty-five day
    period or unless an appeal is filed under paragraph (5).
      (4) Subject to the requirements of paragraph (6) the Secretary
    may accept a nomination directly from any person or local
    government for inclusion of a property on the National Register
    only if such property is located in a State where there is no
    program approved under subsection (b) of this section.  The
    Secretary may include on the National Register any property for
    which such a nomination is made if he determines that such property
    is eligible in accordance with the regulations promulgated under
    paragraph (2). Such determination shall be made within ninety days
    from the date of the nomination unless the nomination is appealed
    under paragraph (5).
      (5) Any person or local government may appeal to the Secretary a
    nomination of any historic property for inclusion on the National
    Register and may appeal to the Secretary the failure or refusal of
    a nominating authority to nominate a property in accordance with
    this subsection.
      (6) The Secretary shall promulgate regulations requiring that
    before any property or district may be included on the National
    Register or designated as a National Historic Landmark, the owner
    or owners of such property, or a majority of the owners of the
    properties within the district in the case of an historic district,
    shall be given the opportunity (including a reasonable period of
    time) to concur in, or object to, the nomination of the property or
    district for such inclusion or designation.  If the owner or owners
    of any privately owned property, or a majority of the owners of
    such properties within the district in the case of an historic
    district, object to such inclusion or designation, such property
    shall not be included on the National Register or designated as a
    National Historic Landmark until such objection is withdrawn.  The
    Secretary shall review the nomination of the property or district
    where any such objection has been made and shall determine whether
    or not the property or district is eligible for such inclusion or
    designation, and if the Secretary determines that such property or
    district is eligible for such inclusion or designation, he shall
    inform the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the
    appropriate State Historic Preservation Officer, the appropriate
    chief elected local official and the owner or owners of such
    property, of his determination.  The regulations under this
    paragraph shall include provisions to carry out the purposes of
    this paragraph in the case of multiple ownership of a single
    property.
      (7) The Secretary shall promulgate, or revise, regulations -
        (A) ensuring that significant prehistoric and historic
      artifacts, and associated records, subject to section 470h-2 of
      this title, the Act of June 27, 1960 (16 U.S.C. 469c) (16 U.S.C.
      469 et seq.), and the Archaeological Resources Protection Act of
      1979 (16 U.S.C. 470aa and following) are deposited in an
      institution with adequate long-term curatorial capabilities;
        (B) establishing a uniform process and standards for
      documenting historic properties by public agencies and private
      parties for purposes of incorporation into, or complementing, the
      national historical architectural and engineering records within
      the Library of Congress; and
        (C) certifying local governments, in accordance with subsection
      (c)(1) of this section and for the allocation of funds pursuant
      to section 470c(c) of this title.
      (8) The Secretary shall, at least once every 4 years, in
    consultation with the Council and with State Historic Preservation
    Officers, review significant threats to properties included in, or
    eligible for inclusion on, the National Register, in order to -
        (A) determine the kinds of properties that may be threatened;
        (B) ascertain the causes of the threats; and
        (C) develop and submit to the President and Congress
      recommendations for appropriate action.
    (b) Regulations for State Historic Preservation Programs; periodic
        evaluations and fiscal audits of State programs; administration
        of State programs; contracts and cooperative agreements with
        nonprofit or educational institutions and State Historic
        Preservation Officers; treatment of State programs as approved
        programs
      (1) The Secretary, in consultation with the National Conference
    of State Historic Preservation Officers and the National Trust for
    Historic Preservation, shall promulgate or revise regulations for
    State Historic Preservation Programs. Such regulations shall
    provide that a State program submitted to the Secretary under this
    section shall be approved by the Secretary if he determines that
    the program -
        (A) provides for the designation and appointment by the
      Governor of a ''State Historic Preservation Officer'' to
      administer such program in accordance with paragraph (3) and for
      the employment or appointment by such officer of such
      professionally qualified staff as may be necessary for such
      purposes;
        (B) provides for an adequate and qualified State historic

      Historic Preservation Program, including the process of
      recommending properties for nomination to the National Register.

    approval of any State program under this subsection, the Secretary,
    in consultation with the Council on the appropriate provisions of
    this subchapter, and in cooperation with the State Historic
    Preservation Officer, shall evaluate the program to determine
    whether it is consistent with this subchapter.
      (B) If, at any time, the Secretary determines that a major aspect
    of a State program is not consistent with this subchapter, the
    Secretary shall disapprove the program and suspend in whole or in
    part any contracts or cooperative agreements with the State and the
    State Historic Preservation Officer under this subchapter, until
    the program is consistent with this subchapter, unless the
    Secretary determines that the program will be made consistent with
    this subchapter within a reasonable period of time.
      (C) The Secretary, in consultation with State Historic
    Preservation Officers, shall establish oversight methods to ensure
    State program consistency and quality without imposing undue review
    burdens on State Historic Preservation Officers.
      (D) At the discretion of the Secretary, a State system of fiscal
    audit and management may be substituted for comparable Federal
    systems so long as the State system -
        (i) establishes and maintains substantially similar
      accountability standards; and
        (ii) provides for independent professional peer review.
    The Secretary may also conduct periodic fiscal audits of State
    programs approved under this section as needed and shall ensure
    that such programs meet applicable accountability standards.

    and in any such case the Secretary may make grants-in-aid to the
    local government for purposes of this section.
      (2)(A) Before a property within the jurisdiction of the certified
    local government may be considered by the State to be nominated to
    the Secretary for inclusion on the National Register, the State
    Historic Preservation Officer shall notify the owner, the
    applicable chief local elected official, and the local historic
    preservation commission.  The commission, after reasonable
    opportunity for public comment, shall prepare a report as to

    the National Register. Within sixty days of notice from the State
    Historic Preservation Officer, the chief local elected official
    shall transmit the report of the commission and his recommendation
    to the State Historic Preservation Officer. Except as provided in
    subparagraph (B), after receipt of such report and recommendation,
    or if no such report and recommendation are received within sixty
    days, the State shall make the nomination pursuant to subsection
    (a) of this section.  The State may expedite such process with the
    concurrence of the certified local government.
      (B) If both the commission and the chief local elected official
    recommend that a property not be nominated to the National
    Register, the State Historic Preservation Officer shall take no

    recommendation by the State Historic Preservation Officer an appeal
    is filed with the State. If such an appeal is filed, the State
    shall follow the procedures for making a nomination pursuant to
    subsection (a) of this section.  Any report and recommendations
    made under this section shall be included with any nomination
    submitted by the State to the Secretary.
      (3) Any local government certified under this section or which is
    making efforts to become so certified shall be eligible for funds
    under the provisions of section 470c(c) of this title, and shall
    carry out any responsibilities delegated to it in accordance with
    such terms and conditions as the Secretary deems necessary or
    advisable.
      (4) For the purposes of this section the term -
        (A) ''designation'' means the identification and registration
      of properties for protection that meet criteria established by
      the State or the locality for significant historic and
      prehistoric resources within the jurisdiction of a local
      government; and
        (B) ''protection'' means a local review process under State or
      local law for proposed demolition of, changes to, or other action
      that may affect historic properties designated pursuant to this
      subsection.
    (d) Historic properties of Indian tribes
      (1)(A) The Secretary shall establish a program and promulgate
    regulations to assist Indian tribes in preserving their particular
    historic properties.  The Secretary shall foster communication and
    cooperation between Indian tribes and State Historic Preservation
    Officers in the administration of the national historic
    preservation program to ensure that all types of historic
    properties and all public interests in such properties are given
    due consideration, and to encourage coordination among Indian
    tribes, State Historic Preservation Officers, and Federal agencies
    in historic preservation planning and in the identification,
    evaluation, protection, and interpretation of historic properties.
      (B) The program under subparagraph (A) shall be developed in such
    a manner as to ensure that tribal values are taken into account to
    the extent feasible.  The Secretary may waive or modify
    requirements of this section to conform to the cultural setting of
    tribal heritage preservation goals and objectives.  The tribal
    programs implemented by specific tribal organizations may vary in
    scope, as determined by each tribe's chief governing authority.

                                 AMENDMENTS
      1992 - Subsec. (a)(3). Pub. L. 102-575, Sec. 4009(1), amended
    par. (3) generally.  Prior to amendment, par. (3) read as follows:
    ''for more than 50 per centum of the aggregate cost of carrying out
    projects and programs specified in section 470a(d)(1) and (2) of
    this title in any one fiscal year, except that for the costs of
    State or local historic surveys or inventories the Secretary shall
    provide 70 per centum of the aggregate cost involved in any one
    fiscal year.''
      Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 102-575, Sec. 4009(2), which directed
    amendment of subsec. (b) by striking out '', in which case a grant
    to the National Trust may include funds for the maintenance,
    repair, and administration of the property in a manner satisfactory
    for the Secretary'', was executed by striking out '', in which case
    a grant to the National Trust may include funds for the
    maintenance, repair, and administration of the property in a manner
    satisfactory to the Secretary'' after ''United States'' to reflect
    the probable intent of Congress.
      Subsecs. (d) and (e). Pub. L. 102-575, Sec. 4009(3), added
    subsec. (d), relating to availability, and subsec. (e).
      1986 - Subsec. (a). Pub. L. 99-514 substituted ''Internal Revenue
    Code of 1986'' for ''Internal Revenue Code of 1954'', which for
    purposes of codification was translated as ''title 26'' thus
    requiring no change in text.
      1980 - Subsec. (a). Pub. L. 96-515, Sec. 202(a), (b), in par. (3)
    substituted provision directing that no grant be made for more than
    50 per centum of the aggregate cost of carrying out projects and
    programs specified in section 470a(d)(1) and (2) of this title in
    any one fiscal year, except that for costs of State or local
    historic surveys or inventories the Secretary provide 70 per centum
    of the aggregate cost involved in any one fiscal year for provision
    directing that no grant be made for more than 50 per centum of the
    total cost involved, as determined by the Secretary, which
    determination was to be final, and inserted provision following cl.
    (6), that, except as otherwise permitted, the State share of the
    costs referred to in par. (3) be contributed by non-Federal sources
    and no grant made be treated as taxable income.
      Subsec. (c). Pub. L. 96-515, Sec. 202(c), struck out subsec. (c)
    which authorized the Secretary in his discretion to waive the
    requirements of subsec. (a)(3) of this section for the purposes of
    making grants for the preparation of statewide historic
    preservation plans and surveys and project plans and restricted any
    grant made pursuant to this subsection to not to exceed 70 per
    centum of the cost of the project, with the total cost of grants
    made pursuant to this subsection in any fiscal year not to exceed
    one-half of the funds appropriated for that fiscal year pursuant to
    section 470h of this title.
      1976 - Pub. L. 94-422 reenacted subsecs. (a) and (b) without
    change, added subsec. (c), and redesignated former subsec. (c) as
    (d).

-STATUTE-
    (a) Basis for apportionment
      The amounts appropriated and made available for grants to the
    States for the purposes this (FOOTNOTE 1) subchapter shall be
    apportioned among the States by the Secretary on the basis of needs
    as determined by him.
       (FOOTNOTE 1) So in original.  Probably should be ''of this''.
    (b) Basis; notification to State; reapportionment
      The amounts appropriated and made available for grants to the
    States for projects and programs under this subchapter for each
    fiscal year shall be apportioned among the States as the Secretary
    determines to be appropriate.
      The Secretary shall notify each State of its apportionment under
    this subsection within thirty days following the date of enactment
    of legislation appropriating funds under this subchapter.  Any
    amount of any apportionment that has not been paid or obligated by
    the Secretary during the fiscal year in which such notification is
    given, and for two fiscal years thereafter, shall be reapportioned
    by the Secretary in accordance with this subsection.  The Secretary
    shall analyze and revise as necessary the method of apportionment.
    Such method and any revision thereof shall be published by the
    Secretary in the Federal Register.
    (c) Transfer of funds to local governments
      A minimum of 10 per centum of the annual apportionment
    distributed by the Secretary to each State for the purposes of
    carrying out this subchapter shall be transferred by the State,
    pursuant to the requirements of this subchapter, to local
    governments which are certified under section 470a(c) of this title
    for historic preservation projects or programs of such local
    governments.  In any year in which the total annual apportionment
    to the States exceeds $65,000,000, one half of the excess shall
    also be transferred by the States to local governments certified
    pursuant to section 470a(c) of this title.
    (d) Guidelines for use and distribution of funds to local
        governments
      The Secretary shall establish guidelines for the use and
    distribution of funds under subsection (c) of this section to
    insure that no local government receives a disproportionate share
    of the funds available, and may include a maximum or minimum
    limitation on the amount of funds distributed to any single local
    government.  The guidelines shall not limit the ability of any
    State to distribute more than 10 per centum of its annual
    apportionment under subsection (c) of this section, nor shall the
    Secretary require any State to exceed the 10 per centum minimum
    distribution to local governments.

        agencies
 
-STATUTE-
    (a) Responsibilities of Federal agencies; program for
        identification, evaluation, nomination, and protection
      (1) The heads of all Federal agencies shall assume responsibility
    for the preservation of historic properties which are owned or
    controlled by such agency.  Prior to acquiring, constructing, or
    leasing buildings for purposes of carrying out agency
    responsibilities, each Federal agency shall use, to the maximum
    extent feasible, historic properties available to the agency.  Each
    agency shall undertake, consistent with the preservation of such
    properties and the mission of the agency and the professional
    standards established pursuant to section 470a(g) of this title,
    any preservation, as may be necessary to carry out this section.
      (2) Each Federal agency shall establish (unless exempted pursuant
    to section 470v of this title), in consultation with the Secretary,
    a preservation program for the identification, evaluation, and
    nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, and
    protection of historic properties.  Such program shall ensure -
        (A) that historic properties under the jurisdiction or control
      of the agency, are identified, evaluated, and nominated to the
      National Register;
        (B) that such properties under the jurisdiction or control of
      the agency as are listed in or may be eligible for the National
      Register are managed and maintained in a way that considers the
      preservation of their historic, archaeological, architectural,
      and cultural values in compliance with section 470f of this title
      and gives special consideration to the preservation of such
      values in the case of properties designated as having National
      significance;
        (C) that the preservation of properties not under the
      jurisdiction or control of the agency, but subject to be
      potentially affected by agency actions are given full

      carried out in consultation with other Federal, State, and local
      agencies, Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations carrying
      out historic preservation planning activities, and with the
      private sector; and
        (E) that the agency's procedures for compliance with section
      470f of this title -
          (i) are consistent with regulations issued by the Council
        pursuant to section 470s of this title;
          (ii) provide a process for the identification and evaluation
        of historic properties for listing in the National Register and

        governments, Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, and
        the interested public, as appropriate, regarding the means by
        which adverse effects on such properties will be considered;
        and
          (iii) provide for the disposition of Native American cultural
        items from Federal or tribal land in a manner consistent with
        section 3002(c) of title 25.
    (b) Records on historic properties to be altered or demolished;
        deposit in Library of Congress or other appropriate agency
      Each Federal agency shall initiate measures to assure that where,
    as a result of Federal action or assistance carried out by such
    agency, an historic property is to be substantially altered or
    demolished, timely steps are taken to make or have made appropriate
    records, and that such records then be deposited, in accordance
    with section 470a(a) of this title, in the Library of Congress or
    with such other appropriate agency as may be designated by the
    Secretary, for future use and reference.
    (c) Agency Preservation Officer; responsibilities; qualifications
      The head of each Federal agency shall, unless exempted under
    section 470v of this title, designate a qualified official to be
    known as the agency's ''preservation officer'' who shall be
    responsible for coordinating that agency's activities under this
    subchapter.  Each Preservation Officer may, in order to be
    considered qualified, satisfactorily complete an appropriate
    training program established by the Secretary under section 470a(h)
    of this title.
    (d) Agency programs and projects
      Consistent with the agency's missions and mandates, all Federal
    agencies shall carry out agency programs and projects (including
    those under which any Federal assistance is provided or any Federal
    license, permit, or other approval is required) in accordance with
    the purposes of this subchapter and, give consideration to programs
    and projects which will further the purposes of this subchapter.
    (e) Review of plans of transferees of surplus federally owned
        historic properties
      The Secretary shall review and approve the plans of transferees
    of surplus federally owned historic properties not later than
    ninety days after his receipt of such plans to ensure that the
    prehistorical, historical, architectural, or culturally significant
    values will be preserved or enhanced.
    (f) Planning and actions to minimize harm to National Historic
        Landmarks
      Prior to the approval of any Federal undertaking which may
    directly and adversely affect any National Historic Landmark, the
    head of the responsible Federal agency shall, to the maximum extent
    possible, undertake such planning and actions as may be necessary
    to minimize harm to such landmark, and shall afford the Advisory
    Council on Historic Preservation a reasonable opportunity to
    comment on the undertaking.
    (g) Costs of preservation as eligible project costs
      Each Federal agency may include the costs of preservation
    activities of such agency under this subchapter as eligible project
    costs in all undertakings of such agency or assisted by such
    agency.  The eligible project costs may also include amounts paid
    by a Federal agency to any State to be used in carrying out such
    preservation responsibilities of the Federal agency under this
    subchapter, and reasonable costs may be charged to Federal
    licensees and permittees as a condition to the issuance of such
    license or permit.
    (h) Annual preservation awards program
      The Secretary shall establish an annual preservation awards
    program under which he may make monetary awards in amounts of not
    to exceed $1,000 and provide citations for special achievement to
    officers and employees of Federal, State, and certified local
    governments in recognition of their outstanding contributions to
    the preservation of historic resources.  Such program may include
    the issuance of annual awards by the President of the United States
    to any citizen of the United States recommended for such award by
    the Secretary.
    (i) Environmental impact statement
      Nothing in this subchapter shall be construed to require the
    preparation of an environmental impact statement where such a
    statement would not otherwise be required under the National
    Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), and
    nothing in this subchapter shall be construed to provide any
    exemption from any requirement respecting the preparation of such a
    statement under such Act.
    (j) Waiver of provisions in event of natural disaster or imminent
        threat to national security
      The Secretary shall promulgate regulations under which the
    requirements of this section may be waived in whole or in part in
    the event of a major natural disaster or an imminent threat to the
    national security.
    (k) Assistance for adversely affected historic property
      Each Federal agency shall ensure that the agency will not grant a
    loan, loan guarantee, permit, license, or other assistance to an
    applicant who, with intent to avoid the requirements of section
    470f of this title, has intentionally significantly adversely
    affected a historic property to which the grant would relate, or
    having legal power to prevent it, allowed such significant adverse
    effect to occur, unless the agency, after consultation with the
    Council, determines that circumstances justify granting such
    assistance despite the adverse effect created or permitted by the
    applicant.
    (l) Documentation of decisions respecting undertakings
      With respect to any undertaking subject to section 470f of this
    title which adversely affects any property included in or eligible
    for inclusion in the National Register, and for which a Federal
    agency has not entered into an agreement with the Council, the head
    of such agency shall document any decision made pursuant to section
    470f of this title.  The head of such agency may not delegate his
    or her responsibilities pursuant to such section.  Where a section
    106 (16 U.S.C. 470f) memorandum of agreement has been executed with
    respect to an undertaking, such memorandum shall govern the
    undertaking and all of its parts.

    and the lack of adequate distribution of technical information to
    preserve such properties, a national initiative to coordinate and
    promote research, distribute information, and provide training
    about preservation skills and technologies would be beneficial.
