                                    APRIL 9, 2019.-Ordered to be printed


                          Mr. HOEVEN,  from the Committee on Indian Affairs,
                                       submitted the following

                                          REPORT

                                          [To accompany S. 226]
                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                     The Committee  on Indian Affairs, to which was referred the bill
                   (S. 226) to clarify the rights of Indians and Indian Tribes on Indian
                   lands under the National Labor  Relations Act, having considered
                   the same, reports favorably thereon without amendment  and  rec-
                   ommends  that the bill do pass.
                                              PURPOSE
                     The bill, S. 226 would amend and clarify the National Labor Re-
                   lations Act (NLRA or the Act) to support governmental parity for
                   tribal governments and respect tribal sovereignty so that Federally-
                   recognized Indian tribes, tribal governments, and tribally-owned
                   and operated institutions and enterprises located on Indian lands
                   are exempt from the Act.
                                        NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                     The NLRA   was enacted by Congress in 1935 to ensure fair labor
                   practices by providing workers with the right to collectively bargain
                   with employers. It explicitly exempts Federal and state govern-
                   mental 1 employers from the definition of covered employers. The
                   law is silent, however, on the treatment of tribes, tribal govern-
                   ments, and  tribally-owned and  operated institutions and enter-

                   'Including any corporations wholly-owned by these governmental entities.
