Congress votes to end blood quantum requirement, applies to five tribes

A bill ending a blood quantum requirement awaits President Donald Trump's signature after it unanimously passed the U.S. House and Senate. HR2606, also known as the Stigler Act Amendments of 2018, was authored by Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) and co-sponsored by Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02). The legislation amends a 1947 law and would remove the one-half degree Native American blood quantum restriction for holders of tribal allotment land.
