Description

This letter dated January 13, 1956 from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Chairman Martin Cross informs Cross that Langer voted for US Senate Bill 51 (S. 51) which Langer refers to as "your bill" to Cross. US Senate Bill aimed to amend US Public Law 280 also known as "An Act to Confer Jurisdiction on the States of California, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oregon, and Wisconsin, with Respect to Criminal Offenses and Civil Causes of Action Committed or Arising on Indian Reservations Within Such States, and for Other Purposes." US Senate Bill 51 did not become US Public Law. A handwritten note at the top of the letter reads, "Cross, Martin."
