                                          REPORT

                                          [To accompany H.R. 1074]

                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                     The Committee on Natural Resources, to whom was referred the
                   bill (H.R. 1074) to repeal the Act entitled An Act to confer jurisdic-
                   tion on the State of Iowa over offenses committed by or against In-
                   dians on the Sac and Fox Indian Reservation, having considered
                   the same, report favorably thereon without amendment and rec-
                   ommend that the bill do pass.
                                        PURPOSE OF THE BILL
                     The purpose of H.R. 1074 is to repeal the Act entitled An Act
                   to confer jurisdiction on the State of Iowa over offenses committed
                   by or against Indians on the Sac and Fox Indian Reservation.
                               BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                     The Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi of Iowa live on what
                   is known as the Meskwaki Settlement in Tama County, Iowa,
                   which houses more than 1,300 enrolled members.1 The tribe pur-
                   chased 84 acres of original reservation lands in Iowa in 1857, but
                   the land was not placed into trust until 1896. Pursuant to an Act
                   of Congress (62 Stat. 1161, chapter 759), all crimes on the Tribe's
                   land, regardless of the Indian status of the offender or victim, fall
                   under the jurisdiction of the State of Iowa. H.R. 1074 would rescind
                   this Act and thereby put crimes committed by or against Indians
                   on the Tribe's lands under federal or tribal jurisdiction in a manner
