Sen. Dean Florez PULLS controversial Bill Giving Tribes too Much Power
Senator Dean Florez has PULLED his bill from the California Legislature titled S.B. 170. This was the bill that was an attempt to give authority to Indian tribes or tribal groups to cancel Williamson Act contracts on land they purchase removing any “encumbrance” that would prevent them from then taking that property through the fee-to-trust process thereby taking it off the property tax roles.
