1991- President Bush Statement on Signing the Tribal Self-Governance Demonstration Project Act

“Today I am signing into law H.R. 3394, the “Tribal Self-Governance Demonstration Project Act.” This bill extends the duration of, and expands the number of tribes participating
in, a demonstration project under which tribes plan, consolidate, conduct, and administer certain programs, services, and functions previously provided by the Department of the Interior. This demonstration project has been an important step in Indian self-determination, in improving the government-to-government relationship between tribes and the United States, and in helping Indian tribes develop independence.”
