Iload construction on the Klamath
Indian reservation, for which thn trl-
ba- "uncll recently authorlied the
An.n.iii.... rrt AAA - -.. 1
expenditure of I&0.000 of tribal
funds, I considered probablo by the
Klamath County Auto association,
which hn had tho matter up with
authorities at Washlngon.
The situation Is outlined In Ibo Sal
lowing letter from Chai. 'II. Dttrko,
commissioner of Indian affair, to
Congressman N. J. Rlnnott, a copy
of which recently wa received hero
hy the auto associatien:
I havn your letter of March 8th. In
regard to n communication which you
have received from one of your .con
stituent requesting a ropy of a sup
posed MR permitting tho department
of thn Interior to use Indian money to
build roads across Indian reserva
tions. I assume that your correspond
ent refers to It .A. 0054, Introduced
by Mr. llayden. proposing to author
ize appropriation for public high
way across Indian reservation such
appropriation to be reimbursed
from tribal fund where available.
Scnator Ashurst ha Introduced an
Identical bill In the senate (S. 2931).
Favorable reports JarpJbcttt,llhlDit-.
ted on both bills.
Section 3 of tho Kcdoral Highway
act approved ovembor 9, 19S1 (Pub
lic No. 87-6 7 th Congress), provide
In part as follew:
"Tho Secretary of Agriculture
tx authorized to co-operato with
tho Stato highway department,
and with the department ot tho
interior in tho construtcion ot
public highway within Indian
reservations, nnd to pay the
amount assumed therefore from
tho funds allotted or apportion
ed under this Act to tho Stato
wherein tho reservation is locat
ed." Hy tho "amount assumed thcro
foro" apparently I meant that por
tion of the cost of tho road which
may be paid from federal aid money
made available by tho act which, un
der Section 11 thereof. Is usually lim
ited to SO per cent of such total cost.
Tho Interpretation thua far placed up
on the above quoted provision ot Sec
tion 3 of tho act, has been that this
namo limitation applies to roads with
in Indian reservation ns well as else
where. This being tho cae. fund
would not brrnvalUhlo for tho othor
no pnr rent of tho cost of uch road
except In tho comparatively few case
whern thn Indians have tribal funds
that con bo used for tho purpose. On
this understanding tho bills mention
ed above wero Introduced In con
gress with tho view of providing
funds for thl purpose, thereby mak
ing effectlvo tho provision for co-operation
in section 3 ot tho act.
However, slnco these bills wero In
troduced, it has been suggested that
possibly section 3 might bo so Inter
preted a to permit payment. ot the
entlro cost of public hlghwaysVlthln
Indian reservation from federal aid
money mado availablo by tho high
way act. In order to cloar up this
polut. tho comptroller general has
boon asked for a decision on the
question, but oven should tho deci
sion bo favorable it Is not likely that
tho states would consont to tho pay
ment from their respectlvo allotments
of fcdoral aid money of tho entlro
cost of roads within Indian reserva
tions whoro tho land Is untaxed and
when, as Is tho case In u majority or
Instances, such allotments urn not
suftllcont for all tho public highways
which tho stato wishes to construct
off tho reservations. Under tho cir
cumstances; thoroforo, and regard
less ot tho comptroller's decision, I
think it ndvlsablo that tho abovo bills
bo cuacted into law.
