Federal agencies have responsibilities -- including to allow public
input -- under Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act
-- an angle I will be pursuing as president of NMAC.  In the past no
one has paid much attention to Section 110, because everyone's
concerns were addressed by Section 106 and the sense that the SHPOs
were on patrol.  Now, with the BLM at least, we can no longer make
that assumption and it's time for the historic preservation community
to "activate" Section 110, as well as using NEPA to make up for the
SHPO oversight we are losing.
