Pigford II Passes Senate
As reported by the Post here. Also includes money to settle the long lasting lawsuit over BIA's handling of Indian trust funds. I must say, given the way ASCS/FSA and BIA pass information on payments for land owned by BIA Indians, I've never been surprised at how screwed up the accounts got. Some historian will write an interesting book on the subject because it's a place where Native American society and the market-oriented, individualistic society of the European settlers interfaces, interfaces poorly.
