Stigler Act Amendments of 2017

This bill amends the Act of August 4, 1947 (commonly known as the Stigler Act) to revise provisions regarding the restricted fee status of land in Oklahoma allotted to members of the Five Civilized Tribes (Five Tribes). Under current law, the restricted fee status of land allotted to the Five Tribes is maintained only if the individual holding title has one-half or more Native American blood. Under this bill, the restricted fee status is maintained for lineal descendants by blood of an original enrollee whose name appears on the membership rolls of the Five Tribes.
