The ACHP voted at its summer business meeting on July 10 to support the Preserving America’s Battlefields Act; Restore Our Parks Act/Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act; Historic Tax Credit Growth and Opportunity Act; and National Heritage Area Act.

Chairman Jorjani sent letters to members of Congress commenting on these bills.
