Lawmakers hear bill affecting Oneida Nation liquor license

A bill to require the Oneida Nation to go through the village of Hobart, Wisconsin, for a liquor license went up for a hearing on Wednesday.

A provision in the state budget allows the tribe to bypass the village for the license at Thornberry Creek Country Club. The village, whose director of community development and tribal affairs is the former leader of an anti-Indian group, was placing numerous conditions on the license at the time.

The bill revokes the budget provision so the tribe won't be able to renew its existing license, which expires in 2012.
