Indian Employment Training and Related Services Demonstration Act of 1991. Joint Hearing on S. 1530 To Authorize the Integration of Employment, Training, and Related Services Provided by Indian Tribes before the Select Committee on Indian Affairs, United States Senate and the Committee on Labor and Human Resources, Subcommittee on Employment and Productivity. One Hundred Second Congress, First Session (July 25, 1991).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs.
This report documents statements from Senators, agency representatives, and tribal representatives concerning Senate bill S. 1530. The purposes of S. 1530 are to demonstrate how Indian tribal governments can integrate the employment, training and related services they provide in order to improve the effectiveness of those services, reduce joblessness in Indian communities and serve tribally-determined goals consistent with the policy of self-determination. Proponents among the witnesses saw the bill as a means to circumvent the bureaucracy involved in administering programs for Indians. Opponents claimed that the bill is unnecessary. The Department of Education spokesman stated that the America 2000 Excellence in Education Act accomplishes the same goal and is a preferable approach to the problem. Witnesses for the Small Business Administration (SBA) expressed the belief that there are no legal barriers to the SBA providing its programs to Indians in conjunction with other agencies. Many representatives expressed concern that the bill would eliminate Indian Summer Youth Programs. Others advocated filling federal positions with Indians. The document contains the text of S. 1530 and transcripts of statements made by all those appearing before the committees. The appendix contains prepared statements in their entirety and letters submitted for the record. (KS)
