Senate Committee on Indian Affairs focuses on justice issues

 


Two landmark tribal justice laws have made a significant impact in Indian Country in the last six years and key members of Congress are looking to build on those gains.

The Tribal Law and Order Act became law in 2010 and it set the stage for the Violence Against Women Act three years later. Both were written to help tribes address high rates of crime on their reservations, including violence against women.
