H.R. 2991: Susquehanna National Heritage Area Act

On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass, as Amended in the House

Passed · Jun 5, 2018 at 7:05 p.m. ET · Source:

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2991 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 2991 would establish the Susquehanna National Heritage Area in two counties in Pennsylvania. The general purpose of heritage areas is to enhance State, local and private authorities to protect, enhance, and interpret the natural, historic, scenic, and cultural resources of the heritage area. Heritage areas generally do not include federal lands and are not directly managed by the federal government. The Susquehanna Heritage Corporation would be the local management entity for the Heritage Area. It will develop a management plan which must be approved by the Secretary of the Interior. The plan is to include comprehensive policies, strategies and recommendations for the conservation, funding, management and development of the Heritage Area. The Secretary can also provide technical assistance under the Act for 15 years.
