May 12, 2021
Four more Indian Country bills are scheduled for passage in the U.S. House of Representatives this week.
All four will be considered under a suspension of the rules as soon as Wednesday afternoon, according to the Democratic House Majority Leader's calendar. The process is typically used when bills are considered non-controversial, meaning they are likely to pass with overwhelming support in the chamber.
The bill are:
• H.R.478, the Blackwater Trading Post Land Transfer Act. The bill places about 55 acres in Arizona in trust for the Gila River Indian Community.
