Tribe's casino hopes rise with Dorgan amendment

Boston Herald,  Friday, September 25, 2009 at 6:35:34 PM

The chairman of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe is cheering legislation that would put the tribe's land into a trust, clearing the way for a casino in Middleboro.

"We're very encouraged by the amendment introduced by Senator Dorgan and we are hopeful that Congress will take this opportunity to resolve the inequitable situation caused by Carcieri v. Salaza," said Cedric Cromwell, chairman of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe in a statement referring to the Supreme Court decision in February that limited the federal government's authority to hold land in trust for Indian tribes.

Sen. Byron Dorgan, a North Dakota Democrat, has introduced a measure to amend the 1934 Indian Reorganization Act. If enacted, the bill would affirm the Secretary of Interior's authority to take land into trust for all tribes, regardless of when they were recognized. the source
