Gov. Jim Doyle has signed into law a bill designed to bring Wisconsin into better compliance with a 30-year-old federal law related to the welfare of American Indian children. Doyle's office says the bill he signed Tuesday will strengthen connections between Indian children and their tribes. The new law attempts to ensure that the child welfare system works with the tribes to promote the best interests of Indian children.
