House Natural Resources Committee approves two Indian bills


The House Natural Resources Committee passed two Indian bills at a markup session that concluded on Thursday morning.

H.R.2212, a bill to benefit the Susanville Indian Rancheria in California, and H.R.2270, the Billy Frank Jr. Tell Your Story Act, were approved by unanimous consent. Both are considered non-controversial and enjoy bipartisan support.

H.R.2212 places about 300 acres in trust for the Susanville Rancheria. The tribe plans to use the land -- currently under the control of the Bureau of Land Management -- for its powwow grounds, a cultural center, a museum and a recreational area, according to the hearing memo.
