senate Bill S. 209

Should Native Tribes Have More Options When Using Their Land To Generate Profitable Energy?

Argument in favor

Native Americans have been subjugated and dispossessed for centuries. The least the government can do is make it easier for them to make money off of their own land.

If they are truly native lands why are we exerting our sovereignty over them anyway?

I support Native Americans increasing their enterprises for profit on their own land, but these should be operated under the same safety and environmental standards applying to the rest of the country. If the bill protects the latter, I'll support it.

Sure, they should have the same opportunities to destroy their environment as non-natives have had for the last 250 years

Argument opposed

There’s a reason that government oversight exists — and in this case it's to keep big business from making a quick buck at the expense of people's health and the environment.

They should have the same options as the rest of us, no more, no less.

It doesn't matter whether the energy is produced from Native American lands or not. It is cost and the impact on the environment that need to be considered.

I really feel that they could be taken advantage of the way we all are now. Keep your resources in the ground where they belong, and continue to respect the Earth. There are much better ways to make money, instead we need to help them manage. Their treaty money in more broadly beneficial ways and provide entrepreneurial opportunities for reservation businesses.
