Supes Support Fee-to-Trust Overhaul

The Board of Supervisors voted to support the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) in its efforts to lobby Congress to shake up how the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) handles fee-to-trust applications; the BIA recently approved the Chumash tribe’s bid to annex its 1,400 Camp 4 property, a decision the county has since appealed. CSAC suggests more involvement from counties in the process and more transparency at the BIA.
