by Richard Nicoll of the Colo

Santorum, Donaldson Urge Repeal
U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and
Guy F. Donaldson, president of
the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau,
urged the U.S. Senate to repeal
the “unfair estate,” better
known as the “death tax.” Both
leaders made their statements at
a news conference here recently.
“Perhaps no section of the tax
code is more unfair and more of
a direct hit on entrepreneurship
and the ethic of savings than the
death tax,” said Santorum as he
pledged support for its repeal.
Donaldson, leader of the
28,000-member farm organiza
tion, said, “Many times Pennsyl
vania farm family heirs are
forced to sell their farms to meet
the financial demands of the
‘death tax’ following the death
in the family. It’s a situation
where nobody really gains any
thing, except government, which
collects a tax that virtually elim
inates a farm family business.”

The Century Conservation
Award was presented by the
ALBC board of directors to
Nicoll for his work in promoting
Of Death Tax
Tax Elimination Act (H.R. 8)
with a near veto-proof vote (279-
136). The House-approved legis
lation repeals death taxes by the
year 2010. The legislation re
tains assets (up to $5.6 million)
on a stepped-up basis when the
tax is repealed in 2010.
The stepped-up amount
would be indexed to increase au
tomatically with the inflation
rate. All estate sizes would
retain stepped-up basis assets of
$1.3 million. If an estate were
larger than $1.3 million, the
heirs could choose which assets
retain the stepped-up basis.
There would be an additional
$3 million of assets eligible for
stepped-up basis on estate trans
fers between spouses, bringing
the total value of stepped-up
basis assets in such transfers up
to $4.3 million.
The legislation also reduces
all estate tax rates by about 15
percent over 10 years and lowers
the bottom effective rate from 37
percent to 18 percent. The top

rate is cut from 55 to 53 percent
in 2001 and to 50 percent in
2002. All rates are reduced by a
percent in 2003-2006, by 1.5 per
cent in 2007, and by 2 percent in
2008-2009. The unified credit is
changed to an exemption in
2001, which lowers the bottom
estate tax rate from 37 percent
to 18 percent.
The Pennsylvania congres
sional delegation vote on the leg
islation split along party lines
with Republicans favoring and
Democrats opposing the legisla
tion. Most Democrats are sup
portive of alternative legislation
that would address elimination
of estate taxes for family-owned
businesses. Passage is question

While U.S. Senator Santorum
supports estate tax elimination,
U.S. Senator Specter is unde

threatened to veto the House

Farm animals have long been
part of the Williamsburg experi
ence, But when Richard arrived
15 years ago, the livestock pro
gram was low profile and little
research had gone into the selec
tion of livestock breeds.
He began to research 18th
century material and compiled a
list of breeds that would be ap
propriate for the time period.
Nicoll initiated a cattle pro
gram based on the Milking
Devon for dairying and oxen
work. This year you can even
find a Devon beef roast sizzling
on the spit in the Governor’s
Palace kitchen. He encouraged
staff to do the research and to
pursue the purchase of an
American Cream Draft horse
for the carriage program, and
later the Canadian breed was
Nicoll improved the sheep
program from using phenotypi
cal sheep to genotypical sheep
with the arrival of the Leicester
Longwools, and essentially rein
troduced the breed into North
America. The poultry program
has expanded to four historic
chicken breeds, and there are
plans to add turkeys and pi
geons in the near future.
The historic rare breeds dra
matically increased the interpre
tive potential and provided the
opportunity to discuss rare
breeds, the 18th century agricul
tural revolution, Robert

Bakewell’s pioneering livestock
breeding techniques, and the
changing livestock industry
around the world.
Williamsburg’s fields and
barns could have more easily
been populated with more
modern and common breeds. It
would have saved time and
money to use artificial insemina
tion on the rare horses, sheep,
and cattle, to avoid road trips to
obtain new animals, and to
move breeding groups. Yet the
rare breeds have paid back the
investment by providing inter
esting topics to discuss, beautiful
animals to show visitors, and the
feeling that Williamsburg is
helping these vulnerable breeds
to survive.
Colonial Williamsburg’s con
servation, study, and display of
material culture is known and
copied throughout the museum
world. Thanks to Nicoll’s vision
and guidance, the livestock pro
gram is also well known in the
museum world. He encourages
other museum and living history
sites to use rare breeds to en
hance their mission. He is fond
of saying he wants to make the
rare breeds program so popular
that it will continue long after he
leaves Colonial Williamsburg.
Nicoll’s contribution to rare
breeds conservation has been in
valuable, while at the same time
enriching the experience of visi
tors to Colonial Williamsburg.
