Committee for Cultural Policy on HR 1493

The Committee for Cultural Policy has again written the House Foreign Relations Committee to express serious concerns about HR 1493, a bill that purports to protect international cultural property in times of war, civil conflict or natural disaster.

While the bill's aims are laudable, it-- like its predecessor HR 5703-- is deeply flawed and should be improved as it passes through the legislative process.
