Virginia Tribal recognition bill reintroduced

Tribal recognition bill reintroduced
Richmond Times-Dispatch
Wednesday, March 2, 2005


WASHINGTON -- A controversial bill to grant sovereign status to six Virginia Indian tribes was reintroduced this week by Sen. George Allen, R-Va.


Similar legislation first was introduced in 2000 by Rep. Jim Moran, D-8th District. The effort has gained increased support since then -- including backing from Virginia Gov. Mark R. Warner -- but has not received an up-or-down vote in either chamber of Congress.

Last year, the Senate Indian Affairs Committee approved Allen's bill to give the six tribes federal recognition, as the process is called. But questions by some senators kept the measure from advancing to the Senate floor.

The bill has been slowed in part by foes concerned it could open the doors to casino gambling in Virginia. Its backers contend the bill is needed to deliver long overdue justice, and its safeguards would protect against casino gambling in the commonwealth.

Gaming should never be an issue in a recognition decision; only whether the group meets the criteria for being considered an Indian tribe.

Personally, I think it's a mistake for all six tribes to lump themselves into one bill. There are a couple of questionable groups in there that are hindering the others from receiving the recognition they deserve.
