Huffman re-introduces Lytton Rancheria tribal land legislation

Heather Bailey Mar 7, 2019 Changes to previous bill would eliminate all gaming by the tribe in Sonoma County

Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) has reintroduced the Lytton Rancheria Homelands Act, a bill to take lands owned by the Lytton Rancheria in Sonoma County into trust for housing and other purposes as part of the tribe’s reservation.

The act also permanently prohibits the tribe from using those lands or other land in Sonoma County for casino gaming, a change from a previous version which kept gaming out of the county for 22 years and kept it out of everywhere north of Highway 12 in perpetuity.
