Description

This report from the United States (US) House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, dated July 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. This report recommends an amendment to the wording of the bill. This amendment mirrors language used in similar bills relating to the Lower Brule and Crow Creek Indian Tribes. This bill resolves the grazing rights issues on these lands and will benefit the Three Affiliated Tribes’ livestock industry which was hampered by the Garrison Dam project. The Assistant Secretary of the Interior raises several questions regarding details about the grazing rights and provides suggestions for clarification of the bill. The secretary of the US Army adds that he believes the bill needs more “legislative guidelines.” US Senate Bill 1161 became US Public Law 87-695 on September 25, 1962.
