Federal and State Preservation Laws
Presenter: Tristan Harrenstein, RPA, Florida Public Archaeology Network

Many local governments are unaware of the Federal preservation laws that exist and when they come into play. This module is designed to help them avoid future problems by detailing the laws and when they must be considered, and by providing an overview of the Section 106 compliance process. Consultation with the appropriate government body will still be necessary, but participants will gain enough knowledge to avoid unpleasant surprises.

The basic structure of Florida preservation laws is very similar to Federal laws in many respects, but with some very important differences. Like the module detailing Federal laws, this module provides enough knowledge to help a local government avoid unpleasant surprises by describing when compliance is necessary, an overview of the process, and by providing contact information for the pertinent government agencies. There are enough similarities between these two modules that they will be shorter together than each individually.
