WASHINGTON, D.C. – Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) Chairman Aimee Jorjani today administered the oath of office to John G. Finley of New York, swearing him in as a new general public member to a term ending in June 2022. President Donald J. Trump appointed Finley to the ACHP.

On April 3, 2020, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation issued a blanket extension regarding the review under 36 CFR 800.12 of undertakings responding to COVID-19 emergency and disaster declarations. Two extensions were issued, the second of which was set to expire on September 30, 2020. Considering the likelihood of such declarations remaining in place into the foreseeable near future, and the ongoing need for federal agency responses to them, that extension is now set to expire on December 31, 2020.
