The U.S. House of Representatives approved a “fix” for the controversial U.S. Supreme Court ruling on placing land into trust. The proposal is now stalled in the Senate. For the past 10 years, elected leaders on both sides of the aisle have called it a bad ruling and have been working on a legislative solution. The Carcieri v. Salazar decision from 2009 means the Interior Department can place land into trust only for tribes recognized by the federal government before 1934. There are some exceptions. In 2011, Assistant Secretary–Indian Affairs Larry Echo Hawk called it a “Carcieri crisis” and warned that the ruling affects jobs, economic development and public safety. We’ll get an update on the status of a legislative “fix” and hear about the ongoing effects of the decision on tribes.
