National Heritage Area Update

After the April 11th hearing, H.R. 2991 was marked up and reported out of the House Natural Resources Committee to await a vote by the full U.S. House of Representatives. On June 5th, 2018 the U.S. House of Representatives approved Congressman Lloyd Smucker’s bill H.R. 2991 to designate Lancaster and York Counties as the Susquehanna National Heritage Area. You can read about it and watch video of House proceedings on the bill here. This is a key milestone on the way to bringing this national honor to our region. Thank you Congressman Smucker and the U.S. House of Representatives for recognizing the national significance of our area and passing this legislation.
