house Bill H.R. 538

Speeding up Energy Initiatives on Native American Lands

Argument in favor

Removing restrictions on energy development will lead to more lucrative projects in the U.S. and thus boost the economy and livelihood of tribal groups, who have the right to lease and profit off their own land.

Let the tribes decide without interference from the Feds. We've interfered enough with the tribes

If we have ultimate vote over alleged native lands then how can they actually be native lands? Are they serfs, like the rest of us?

Argument opposed

The country should be focusing on renewable energy, not energy sources that will destroy the environment. In the long-term, this bill makes it easier to drill and harder to enforce renewable energy practices.

It is their land and not ours to impede on or impose our desires to obtain energy sources that belong to them. We need to stop screwing over the native Americans

No we shouldn't pass any bill that encourages even more oil drilling, it only harms the environment and greatly endangers future generations, we need to think about what's going to happen to our great grandchildren, and it may employ some people, but there's no point in making a profit of there isn't a world to spend it in

I have this funny feeling that this is not only the Native American's plan to tap into these reserves. I bet some energy companies have a hand in this too. America needs to move on to a better source of energy. We may be getting there slowly, but a profitable business may come about when we do.
