December 8, 2017: The Advisory Council for Historic Preservation (ACHP) requested comments on its proposal of a program that would exempt from Section 106 review certain activities that have the potential to affect historic properties within railroad and rail transit rights-of-way. Although ACRA supports efforts to improve the efficiency of National Historic Preservation Act/Section 106 reviews, we could not support the program comment as it is currently written. In a letter to the ACHP, ACRA identified potential problems with the program comment and suggested alternatives.
