Lawmakers concerned about late and missing tribal justice reports

 


Members of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee slammed the Obama administration on Wednesday for failing to deliver timely reports about public safety in Indian Country.

The Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 requires the Department of Justice to provide yearly reports about the number of cases it investigates and prosecutes on reservations. Yet only three have been released in the last five years.

The first two, covering the years 2011-2012 and 2013, were well-publicized by the Obama administration. In contrast, the most recent one, covering 2014, wasn't delivered until shortly before yesterday's hearing.
