WASHINGTON DC - Testimony will be held on Thursday before the US Senate Committee on Indian Affairs called, "The American Indian Probate Reform Act: Empowering Indian Landowners."
The American Indian Probate Reform Act was passed into law by Congress in 2004 and signed by President George W. Bush in October, 2004. The law provides for a more clearer method to pass land ownership from one generation to the next - creating a uniform federal Indian probate code instead of the multiple individual state laws that governed Indian probate activity prior to the enactment of the Act.
