To provide for the addition of certain real property to the reservation of the Siletz Tribe in the State of Oregon.

Summary

(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary has been expanded because action occurred on the measure.) (Sec. 2) This bill amends the Siletz Tribe Indian Restoration Act to authorize the Department of the Interior to take into trust for the Siletz Tribe additional lands that lie within the original 1855 Siletz Coast Reservation and are located in Benton, Douglas, Lane, Lincoln, Tillamook, or Yamhill County in Oregon. Such land must be considered and evaluated as an on-reservation acquisition and become part of the tribe's reservation. (Off-reservation land acquisition requests require Interior to give greater scrutiny to the tribe's justification of the anticipated benefits from the acquisition.) Gaming is prohibited on lands taken into trust pursuant to this bill.
