Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Petition Act - Requires the prompt review by the Secretary of the Interior, acting through the Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs, of the long-standing petition by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe for Federal recognition.
Expresses the sense of the Congress that the prompt review of the petition for Federal recognition will not unnecessarily delay the review of pending fully documented petitions for Federal recognition as an Indian tribe awaiting active consideration as of the date of the enactment of this Act.
