Hearing Room Change:
The McCain hearing will now be held in 106 Dirksen Senate Office Building.
It is a much larger hearing room. That is a change from the 485 Russell SOB.
The John McCain (R-AZ) led Senate Indian Affairs Committee calls it Off-Reservation Gaming: The Process for Considering Gaming Applications. New reservation shopping casinos threaten private property across the country.
If you like the Abramoff lobbying scandal, You’ll Love Reservation Shopping and the expansion of off-reservation casinos. Is your community losing political control to reservation shopping tribal casinos? Are your private property rights being jeopardized by some land grabbing tribes who don’t care about your culture, your history, your families or community? Are you interested in selling your county’s political future? -- the tribes are buying.
Do You Want To Help Put A Stop To This Mess? Ask both your Senators and your Congressman to support a moratorium on any money for processing new off-reservation casinos for three years. This is important because if you just say moratorium, then the Interior Department and Bureau of Indian Affairs will continue to process applications up until the end of the moratorium. Then the flood gates will open. Don’t let that happen. Call your Senators and Congressman now.
