Historically Black Colleges and Universities Historic Building Restoration and Preservation Act. Report Together with Dissenting Views [To Accompany H.R. 2921]. House of Representatives, 103D Congress, 1st Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House.
This report presents evaluations of proposed federal legislation to provide financial support for the restoration and preservation of historic buildings on the campuses of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The legislation enables money already appropriated to be spent on projects at HCBUs. First, the text of modifications to the bill, H.R. 2921, is presented. Next, a brief overview looks at the bill's aims, background of the legislation, and the need for it. A detailed section-by-section analysis is then provided. The 12 specific projects slated for assistance are identified. These are at the following institutions: Fisk University (Tennessee); Morris Brown College (Georgia); Shaw University (North Carolina); Savannah State College (Georgia); St. Augustine's College (North Carolina); Tougaloo College (Mississippi); Bethune-Cookman College (Florida); Morehouse College (Georgia); Howard University (District of Columbia); Hampton University (Virginia); Spelman College (Georgia); and Delaware State College. Other evaluations note legislative history and committee recommendations following hearings (favorably recommended); changes in existing law (none would be required); inflationary impact, cost and budget compliance (no inflationary impact, no significant costs); and oversight statement. A dissenting view statement is appended signed by eight representatives which supports the importance of the projects but argues that current fiscal pressures should not permit this authorization now.
