Abstract:

The Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area Act (H.R. 319, S. 289), which would threaten the rights of property owners while largely benefiting well-to-do estate owners by facilitating exclusionary policies; in contrast, a voluntary compact among the affected states and communities to cooperate on protecting historic sites would require minimal federal involvement and no federal funding.
