Description

This letter, dated March 14, 1956, from Commissioner Glenn Emmons to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick responds to Burdick's February 15 letter which stated that a group of Three Affiliated Tribes tribal members oppose US Senate Bill 2151 (S. 2151) which would provide for per capita payments to tribal members from funds held in trust for the tribe. Burdick inquired as to whether or not the reasons given in opposition to S. 2151 were valid. Emmons provides his views.
