Chumash reintroduces legislation to place Camp 4 into federal trust

Raiza Giorgi January 9, 2019 The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians purchased the Camp 4 property in 2010 from the late actor, vintner and hotelier Fess Parker.

 

The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians announced Jan.9, that legislation to affirm Camp 4’s trust status was reintroduced recently, as the former bill H.R. 1491 failed to pass Congress before they adjourned their last session.

H.R. 317 was introduced into Congress on January 8, 2019, by Congressmen Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) and Salud Carbajal (D-CA). LaMalfa is the former Chair of the Subcommittee on Indian, Insular and Alaska Native Affairs while Carbajal represents Santa Barbara County in Congress. LaMalfa became a key player by submitting three bills over the last several years to allow Camp 4 to be taken into trust.
