The Indian Tribal Governments Team within the Government & Regulatory Affairs Practice Group has issued a special edition of the Tribal Business Journal for winter 2011, discussing the mid-term elections, changes in the Congress, and likely impacts on Indian law and policy. The special edition features a Q&A session with Doc Hastings (R-WA), the Chairman of the Committee on Natural Resources, concerning his vision and priorities for the coming year and his views on key tribal issues. A review of the historic accomplishments of the 111th Congress is included, as well as a spotlight on the Claims Resolution Act of 2010, settling several lawsuits Indian tribes maintained against the federal government. President Obama signed these settlements into law on December 8, 2010.
