Rep. Dwight Evans, D-Pa., introduced a bill to allow rehabilitation expenses on older public school buildings to qualify for the federal historic tax credit (HTC). H.R. 158 would remove the prior-use restriction from the HTC that makes it impossible for local governments to collaborate with private developers on school renovations.  Similar legislation was proposed in 2012.
