house Bill H.R. 2791

Conveying Federal Land to Oregon Indian Tribes and Modifying Forestry Management Policies

Argument in favor

Transferring these federal lands to the Oregon tribes would be beneficial for economic development, as would enabling more forests to logging.

It was their land to begin with. We have no right to tell them how that may use it.

It's their rightful land so land them do what they want with it. I think the white man screwing them over for the past 400 years should be suffice.

Argument opposed

The federal government should keep these areas under their jurisdiction to the greatest extent possible to prevent their misuse.

The land should be given back to the State of Oregon and they should be allowed to determine its disposition - keep, it, give/sell it to the Indians, whatever... The Feds should NOT be able to take the land from the citizens of Oregon and arbitrarily give it to someone else. In fact, the Feds should return all land to the States and get out of the land business.

I do not trust most bills that change forestry rules as they usually decrease the existing protection of our National Forests. ( as in this case.)

This land should be public or private, but giving up large chunks of property to Indian tribes has no positive effect besides making lawmakers feel good.
