Investigation of BIA authorized
Photos feature "The River People"
The Senate Rules committee has
authorized a yearlong investigation
of the BIA and alleged misman
agement of natural resources such
as gas and oil. The investigation
will also look into alleged fraud
and malfeasance in the administra
tion of housing, education and
health programs.
The committee voted to approve
$240,000 to conduct the investiga
tion this year and will seek another
$500,000 for 1988.
Chairman of the Select Commit
tee on Indian Affairs, Senator Daniel
K. Inouye of Hawaii, said the investi
gations was a result of "reports of
ongoing mismanagement of the fede
ral government's administration of
its trust responsibilities. "Public
hearings will be held in Washing
ton, D.C. and in the field.
The special investigation was
prompted by a series of articles in
the "Arizona Republic" last month
which reported that multi-million
dollar federal Indian programs were
plagued by fraud, incompetence
and deceit.
