Reprinted below is a letter recently sent by three members of Congress to the executive director of the Advisory Council for Historic Preservation. We think it is an indication -- perhaps an early warning -- that Congress is very likely to undertake an intensive review of the system of federal historic preservation laws and regulations under which archaeological resources in the United States are protected and managed. The signers of the letter are all well placed to have significant influence on legislation that affects the historic preservation system, and we think they are representative of a significant segment of the new Congress that would be receptive to attempts to weaken protection for archaeological and historic properties. James Hansen (R-Utah) is chair of the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Lands of the House Resources Committee; Wayne Allard (R-Colorado) is chair of the Subcommittee on Resource Conservation, Research, and Forestry of the House Agriculture Committee, and Barbara Vucanovich (R-Nevada) is a member of the Interior Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee.
