Petitioning State Senator Stephen Gooch

Stop Georgia Senate Bill 62 that discriminates against American Indian Tribes

Here is the information that I have on SB 62 and some comments made by Senator Ligon.  This serves no purpose but to prevent the Indian Tribes that are recognized by Georgia from acquiring land for purposes other than casinos.  It would also be unconstitutional and place a severe hardship on Georgia's Indian Tribes to require them to wait until the General Assembly is in session to get approval for a purchase or transfer of land.  This discriminates against Indians and violates the American Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968, Subsection 1302(8).
 
Please read the following links that include statements by Senator Ligon of the 52nd Dist in Georgia:

Please help us stop illegal interferance from Georgia trying to have jurisdiction over American Indian tribes which is prohibited by the United States Constitution and Federal Statutes.
