How Much $$ is Mark Macarro of Pechanga Paying Wife HOLLY MACARRO's Firm IETAN CONSULTING To STEAL ALLOTTEE'S WATER?

During our recent trip to Capitol Hill, meeting with staff members to expose what Pechanga's Mark Macarro is trying to do to reservation allottees with their recent water bill, we got confirmation that Holly Macarro, lobbyist and principal at IETAN CONSULTING put together the bill.

In that bill, both Macarro's are trying to change the defintion of an allottee:

Here is the draft of the water rights bill from three years ago, which included purchaser of reservation land, whether Indian or not:


(4) ALLOTTEE- The term ‘allottee’ means a person who holds a beneficial real property interest in an Indian allotment that is--
(A) located within the Reservation; and
(B) held in trust by the United States .

As you know, Pechanga terminated the membership of 25% of their tribe, which has NO BEARING on our allotment, we are STILL allottees of reservation land and should have all rights.

In the NEW definitions section allottee are defined at a member of an Indian tribe, notwithstanding the fact that allottee could be Indian without tribal membership.

(4) Allottee.--The term ``allottee'' means a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe who holds a beneficial real property interest in an Indian allotment that is--
(A) located within the Reservation; and
(B) held in trust by the United State

Is this because so FEW tribal members have an allotment?  Is it a direct challenge to the original Temecula Indian Allotments from 1895?

Interesting to note that the past FIVE full year, Pechanga has paid Chairman Mark Macarro's WIFE's firm over $1.2 MILLION.   And what has the tribe gotten?  TWO WATER BILLS going NOWHERE!.

In 2008, IETAN had 7 lobbyists on the hill, NOW, only THREE.  Is this a double dip on the chairman's part?
