***MEDIA ADVISORY*** Committee to Consider Legislation to Protect Tribal Sovereignty

On Wednesday, July 22, the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, chaired by Rep. John Kline (R-MN), will mark up H.R. 511, the Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act of 2015. The markup will take place at 10:45 a.m. in room 2175 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

The Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act, introduced by Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN), would prevent the National Labor Relations Board from exerting jurisdiction over Native American businesses operated on tribal lands and provide legal certainty to the nation’s Indian tribes. The Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions previously held a hearing to discuss the legislation.
