WASHINGTON DC –
Senate bill 1439, the Indian Trust Reform Act of 2005, would resolve the Cobell v. Kempthorne case and make reforms to the way the United States manages Indian trust funds and assets. The bill was introduced in July 2005 and Committee staffs have been meeting with representatives from the plaintiffs, the Administration, and Indian tribes to decide what changes, if any, should be made to the bill. This paper highlights several proposals that have come out of some of those discussions.
