Tunica Biloxi Issues of Importance during the 2005 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature

Following are the major issues of interest for the Tunica Biloxi Tribe during the session:

House Concurrent Resolution 160 - by Representative Walker commended the Tunica Biloxi Tribe for its many positive cultural, economic and social contributions the State of Louisiana and Avoyelles Parish. Chairman Barbry and Council and the entire Tribe were honored on the floor of the House of Representatives. Chairman Barbry is the only Tribal Chairman in history to address the Louisiana House of Representatives.

Senate Concurrent Resolution 89 - by Senator Hines commended the Tunica Biloxi Tribe for its many positive cultural, economic and social contributions the State of Louisiana and Avoyelles Parish. Chairman Barbry and Council and the entire Tribe were honored on the floor of the Louisiana State Senate. Chairman Barbry is the only Tribal Chairman in history to address the Louisiana State Senate.

After 4 consecutive years of defeating tribal recognition legislation, no such instruments were introduced. Continued education efforts by the Tunica Biloxi political and governmental relations team has resulted in a drastic decrease in these attempts from previous years.
