GAO reviewed the proposed Indian Tribes of Texas Restoration Act, introduced in Congress in December 1985. GAO specifically addressed: (1) how many tribal members would be eligible to receive federal benefits and services; (2) what federal, state, and local programs the tribal members would be eligible to participate in; and (3) the estimated annual cost of providing services and benefits to eligible members.

GAO found that: (1) as of November 1986, 1,974 Ysleta del Sur Pueblo and Alabama-Coushatta Indians were potentially eligible for federal benefits and services; (2) as United States citizens, Indians have at least the same rights and privileges as non-Indians and may receive services and benefits if they are eligible; (3) both tribes were eligible to receive as much as $7.1 million in fiscal year 1985; and (4) no changes in state and local tax collections would occur as a result of providing federal assistance.
