Sens. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) are seeking to attach a rider to a spending bill that would affect the recognition of Indian tribes, The Norwich Bulletin says in an editorial today.

The paper does not specify which spending bill or the nature of the proposal. But in a July 26 report, the paper said Dodd "hinted that the amendment might boost funds for towns to fight tribal recognition decisions in court or somehow put a temporary halt to any more recognition decisions."
