Introduction of the Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway National Heritage Area Act of 2012

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. PETRI. Mr. Speaker, today I am pleased to join my colleagues ..... in introducing the Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway National Heritage Area Act of 2012, legislation which would designate the Fox-Wisconsin Heritage Parkway as a National Heritage Area. I am also pleased that Senator Kohl is introducing companion legislation in the Senate.

The National Park Service defines National Heritage Areas as:

..... places where natural, cultural, historic and scenic resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape arising from patterns of human activity shaped by geography. These patterns make National Heritage Areas representatives of the American experience through the physical features that remain and the traditions that have evolved in them. These regions are acknowledged by Congress for their capacity to tell important stories about our nation. Continued use of National Heritage Areas by people whose traditions helped to shape the landscape enhances their significance.
