Current Issues in Federal Preservation Law

Developments in National Historic Preservation Act litigation, protections for National Historic Landmarks, attacks against the Antiquities Act of 1906 and recent efforts to weaken National Register listing authority will also be discussed. Litigation examples from around the country will be used to explain the changing legal landscape.
