The House Resources Committee on Wednesday held a hearing on a bill to extend federal recognition to six Virginia tribes.

The tribes are among the oldest state-recognized in the nation. But the Bureau of Indian Affairs said it opposes Congressional acknowledgment, saying the groups should instead petition through the lengthy and timely regulatory process.
