HB 1941 -- Indian Affairs

Sponsor:  Schwab

This bill creates the Missouri Commission of Indian Affairs
within the Department of Economic Development.  The commission
is required to assist with Indian affairs on the local, state,
and federal level for the social and economic protection of
Indians.  The commission must promote recognition of sacred and
meaningful Indian cultural and religious traditions.  It is also
the duty of the commission to study information on all aspects
of Indian affairs, including relief needs, technical assistance
needs, federal programs, and current state law concerning
Indians.  The commission must establish appropriate procedures
to provide legal recognition by the state of Native American
Indians.  Public hearings must be conducted on matters related
to Indian affairs.

The bill outlines the membership, terms, appointment, and
compensation of the commission.  The commission is required to
meet quarterly after proper notice is given.  A written annual
report giving an account of its proceedings, transactions,
findings, and recommendations must be submitted to the Governor
and the General Assembly.  The commission may hire an executive
director to carry out the operations of the commission,
including reviewing all applications and supporting
documentation concerning the legal recognition of Indian groups.
