The Lower East Side Tenement Museum was founded in 1988, and is responsible for preserving the history and experiences of immigrants who settled on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. On April 19, 1994, the Secretary of the Interior declared the Lower East Side Tenement a National Historic Landmark, and the site was designated as an affiliated site of the National Park System on November 12, 1998. In 2006, the Secretary of the Interior and the National Park Service compiled a general management plan for the site. Included in the report was a request for additional space. The Museum obtained a neighboring tenement at 103 Orchard Street, which was renovated for use by the Museum, and the property has since been listed on both the National and New York State Registers of Historic Places. The Museum is neither owned nor operated by the federal government.
H.R. 1846 amends P.L. 105-378, which established the Lower East Side Tenement National Historic Site, to include the lower east side tenement at 103 Orchard Street to the Historic Site.
The CBO estimates that enacting this legislation would not significantly increase the assistance that the Museum already receives from the National Park Service and would therefore have no significant impact on the federal budget. This legislation would have no effect on direct spending or revenues.
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
