Description

This report from the United States (US) House Committee on Resources, dated June 3, 2004, was written to accompany US Senate Bill 1146 which proposed the construction of a rural health care facility on the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota. The estimated cost for construction of said facility is 20 million dollars. This facility is part of a continued attempt by the US government to compensate for loss of property, infrastructure, and way of life for the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara people who were forced off their land on the Fort Berthold Reservation due to the construction of the Garrison Dam. This report includes details about the proposed construction including a cost breakdown. The report also includes the changes that US Senate Bill 1146 would make changes to existing US Public Law 102-575,An Act to Authorize Additional Appropriations for the Construction of the Buffalo Bill Dam and Reservoir, Shoshone Project, Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program, Wyoming." Public Law 102-575 is also known as ''Reclamation Projects Authorization and Adjustment Act of 1992” and contains the subsection known as “Three Affiliated Tribes and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Equitable Compensation Act.” US Senate Bill 1146 became US Public Law 108-437 on December 3, 2004.
