National Indian Goals and Progress Act; Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Indian Affairs of the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, United States Senate, Ninety-Third Congress, First Session on S.1786.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs.
The transcript is taken from the testimony of administration and private witnesses on S.1786, the "National Indian Goals and Progress Act". The purpose of this act is to: (1) require an annual review of the effectiveness of all major Federal programs and services for American Indian people to determine whether fundamental human needs and requirements are being met and Federal responsibilities are being properly fulfilled; (2) establish specific annual programs and services and carefully monitor departmental and agency performance in achieving these goals and objectives; and (3) insure that the financial, human, and other resources are made available to achieve the goals and objectives of programs and services. Congress finds that Federal programs designed to benefit and assist Indian people have not been effective in attaining their stated goals. Congress further finds that there is a need for continuing oversight of programs and services administered by the Department of the Interior and the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare and that this oversight function is best conducted by requiring an annual authorization of appropriations.
