CO-SPONSOR H. RES. 396: AUTHORIZING AND DIRECTING THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY TO INVESTIGATE ACTS OF MISCONDUCT BY DONALD JOHN TRUMP, POTUS

In 2004, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) made a controversial decision in
San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino that the NLRA applies to tribally owned businesses on tribal lands.  This ruling is of great concern to tribes across the country, as it is a clear threat to tribal sovereignty.  The San Manuel decision was a departure
from prior NLRB rulings in Fort Apache Timber (1976) and Southern Indian (1988), as well as court precedents and the Constitution’s recognition of tribes as sovereign governments.

It is not the place of the federal government to impinge upon the authority of sovereign tribes.  Tribal governments alone, accountable to their tribal members and employees, should decide the labor practices for the entities they own on their lands.  This
bill will reaffirm their sovereign right to do exactly that.

Please join me by being a co-sponsor of H.R. 779 to reaffirm and protect tribal sovereignty.  For more information or to be a co-sponsor, please contact Jayson Schimmenti in my office at jayson@mail.house.gov.

Sincerely,
John Moolenaar,
Member of Congress
