Description

This letter, dated March 12, 1956, from Percy Rappaport, Assistant Director in the United States (US) Bureau of the Budget to US Representative and Chair of the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs Clair Engle provides the requested perspective of the US Bureau of the Budget on US House Resolution 9324 (H. R. 9324). The bill would grant hunting, fishing, and grazing rights to the Three Affiliated Tribes on land taken by the US government for construction of the Garrison Dam. This bill is identical to US Senate Bill 1956 (S. 1956). An amendment is suggested for the bill and with the amendment, the US Bureau of the Budget approves of the bill.
