BIA Affirms Waste Management Act Amendments

Author:

The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes were recently notified by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) that amendments to the tribes' waste management regulations had been approved despite objections by local counties and the FMC Corporation. The BIA approval came in a February 24 letter from Northwest Regional Director Stan Speakes, who noted that the 2005 Tribal Waste Management Act and amendments enacted by the tribes Nov. 24 apply to the entire Fort Hall Reservation, including all non-Indian owned lands.
