ICTMN's Rob Capriccioso Discusses Billion-Dollar Settlement on NPR


Indian Country Today Media Network's Washington, D.C. Bureau Chief Rob Capriccioso appeared on National Public Radio to discuss the recent decision by the Obama Administration to resolve 41 long-standing disputes with Indian tribal governments over the federal mismanagement of trust funds and resources for a sum of $1.023 billion.

"Some people are very excited to have a President that they strongly supported having his administration make this kind of progress that no other presidents have done for many many years," Capriccioso tells host Michel Martin, "so for them it's an obvious win-win situation. Others are looking at the dollar-amount—one billion is a lot of money, no doubt, but divided [among] 41 tribes becomes much less money."
