Potential House Committee on Indian Affairs Falls

Although we all had hoped that the House of Representatives would finally establish an Indian affairs committee, like the Senate, those hopes have been dashed - at least for now. Apparently, because the Democrats already had disputes with the Republican minority regarding the oversight roles of other committees, the House Democratic leadership felt that a dispute over creating an Indian affairs committee was not worth it. Thus, Indian affairs will remain with the House Resources Committee at least through the 110th Congress.
