The Subcommittee was asked to provide recommendations of sites for consideration to be listed on the U.S. World Heritage Tentative List. This list will be the basis for U.S. nominations for inscription onto UNESCO's World Heritage List. The recommendations resulting from this discussion will be forwarded from the Department of State to the Department of the Interior.
