Description

This report from the United States (US) House committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, dated September 12, 1962 was written to accompany US Senate bill 1161 which proposed to restore grazing rights to the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation on lands that were taken by the United States government for the Garrison Dam project. The report indicates that the US Army Corps of Engineers had been leasing approximately 52,000 acres of land for grazing, charging $30,000 annually for grazing rights on land formerly owned by The Three Affiliated Tribes. US Senate bill 1161 proposed to restore exclusive grazing rights to the Three Affiliated Tribes without charge and grant them the right to lease these lands for grazing purposes for their own profit. The report indicates that the US Department of the Interior and the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs support the current version of the bill without amendment. (Senate report 1723 contained suggested amendments to an earlier version of Senate bill 1161; see “Providing for the use of lands in the Garrison Dam project by the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation” dated July 12, 1962.) This report notes that two other identical bills were also introduced concurrent with Senate bill 1161 (House Resolutions 12691 and 12692). US Senate bill 1161 became US Public Law 87-695 on September 25, 1962.
