Matter for Congressional Consideration
Comments: Please call 202/512-6100 for additional information.
Matter: To accelerate the termination of federal supervision over Indian affairs, Congress may want to consider enacting legislation requiring the Secretary of the Interior: (1) to prepare long-range termination programs for each Indian group or tribe which will show, by years, the steps and measures that will be taken to raise the economic and social status of the Indians to a level suitable for such termination; (2) to report annually to Congress on the progress being made in carrying out the termination program for each Indian tribe or group; and (3) to submit proposed legislation for the termination of federal supervision over those tribes that the Department considers to be ready for termination but which have not consented to such action. To eliminate a serious obstacle to the termination of federal supervision over Indian affairs, Congress may want to consider enacting legislation to authorize the partition or sale of inherited Indian lands pursuant to the prescribed legal action taken by any one of the competent owners concerned.
