Montana Legislature Sends State ICWA Bill to Governor’s Desk

Here is the bill: HB0317

There has been a lot of wrangling on this one, but in the end this bill has the protections of ICWA as well as incorporating language from the federal regulations.

And just for the record, the Montana Legislature is currently run by a Republican super majority, as is Wyoming and North Dakota, all of which have now passed state ICWA bills. ICWA is a bipartisan law.
