Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after the Indian Asset Reform Act (H.D. 812) was signed into law, which will provide tribes in Eastern Washington and across the country flexibility to manage their own land.

“As a cosponsor of this legislation, I believe that the tribes, not unelected D.C. bureaucrats, should be able to decide how to use native lands,” said McMorris Rodgers. “The Tribes in Eastern Washington are capable of effectively and efficiently managing their assets. This legislation establishes a voluntary demonstration project that increases tribal flexibility to provide additional control over their land. I applaud the President’s decision to sign this important legislation into law, and I look forward to continuing to work with Eastern Washington tribes for the betterment of the region.”
