Bill Summary

(This measure has not been amended since it was reported to the House on May 6, 2014. The summary of that version is repeated here.)

Hinchliffe Stadium Heritage Act - Amends the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 to include within the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park, New Jersey, approximately six acres of land containing Hinchliffe Stadium. Prohibits the Secretary of the Interior from acquiring fee title to the Stadium, but authorizes the Secretary to acquire a preservation easement if doing so will facilitate resource protection of the Stadium.

Prohibits the Secretary, in administering such land, from: (1) including non-federal property within the six acres as part of the Park without the written consent of the owner, (2) acquiring by condemnation any land or interests in land within the six acres, or (3) construing this Act to create buffer zones outside the boundaries of the Park.
