Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) announced Monday that the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs has agreed to hold a hearing to consider legislation to federally recognize six of Virginia’s Indian tribes. The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved the bill last May, and Webb has since urged Chairman Byron Dorgan to consider the bill in the Senate.
