113th Congress

H.R. 783 (112th): Thomasina E. Jordan Indian Tribes of Virginia Federal Recognition Act of 2011. The status of this bill is dead, (referred to committee) without any action by the 112th congress whose term ended on January 3, 2013.

The 113th Congress met in Washington, D.C. on January 3, 2013, and is scheduled to end on January 3, 2015. What are we almost half way through the first year now with no new bill being reintroduced.  So far that leaves the schedule of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs empty as far as Virginia Indians recognition.

Lets see if I can get this straight the state of Virginia has given recognition to the Virginia Native American tribes. So, Virginia can see them, but Washington, D.C. cannot see them?
