Threats to Tribal Sovereignty (2170 words)
Congress has the authority to pass laws in Indian affairs and therefore federal legislation is a "political judgement" which is not, in the court's opinion, itself subject to judicial review.
Also introduced during the 105th Congress are joint bills in both the Senate and the House of Representatives in attempt to "correct the definition of Indian reservation" for the IRS tax code (Senate Resolution 470 (1997) and House of Representatives Resolution 1095 (1997)).
Congress authorized the purchase of over 22,000 acres of reservation land for these projects and the Army was directed to "protect, replace, relocate or reconstruct" the land as necessary (Public Law 85-923; Public Law 87-734).
