Description

This letter, dated January 22, 1952 from United States (US) Senator William Langer to US Representative Usher L. Burdick refers to an attached bill Langer has introduced to amend the act called "An Act to authorize the negotiation and ratification of separate settlement contracts with the Sioux Indians of Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota and of Standing Rock Reservation in South Dakota and North Dakota for Indian lands and rights acquired by the United States for the Oahe Dam and Reservoir, Missouri River development, and for other related purposes," also known as Public Law 81-870. Langer's amendment would increase the amount of time allowed for negotiation and ratification from twenty-eight months to forty months. Langer explains that this amendment was prompted a letter he received from Bismarck Attorney J. K. Murray petitioning Langer to offer such an amendment to prevent Public Law 81-870 from expiring before negotiation and ratification were completed, and Langer asks Burdick to offer a corresponding amendment in the US House of Representatives.
