County asks for Oneida Nation land-into-trust records
The Interior Department, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Department of Defense and the Air Force are being asked to submit "any and/or all" information about the Oneida Nation land-into-trust application.

The BIA has recommended the acquisition of around 10,000 acres for the tribe. No final decision has been made but Madison County filed a lawsuit to stop the potential transfer. The lawsuit also questions the transfer of surplus Air Force land to the tribe.

Additionally, Madison County filed a Freedom of Information Act request in February. The county attorney says he hasn't received any information from the federal agencies.
