Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians Land Transfer Act of 2016

(Sec. 2) This bill directs the Department of the Interior to take specified lands in Santa Barbara County, California, into trust for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians, subject to valid existing rights and to the terms in a certain stipulated judgment relating to a specified easement, if the Tribe transfers title to that land to the United States. (Placing that land into trust removes certain restrictions on the property under California law.)

The transferred land shall become part of the Santa Ynez Indian Reservation.

No gaming may be conducted on the land.
