The California Heritage Task Force, authorized in 1981 by Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 4, as amended by Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 25, is pleased to transmit this Final Report to the Legislature.

In 1981 the Legislature authorized the creation of the California Heritage Task Force. The Task Force's mandate was to develop a practical, yet farreaching and comprehensive set of policies and programs for the State's cultural heritage resources. These resources include artifacts, sites, buildings, documents and traditions with historical, architectural, archeological and folklife significance. Recognizing that the multidimensional challenge of protecting our heritage resources cannot be met by either the private or public sector alone, the Legislature delineated criteria for appointment of Task Force members that ensured ample representation of both sectors.
