Del. Chris Peace (R-Mechanicsville): SINCE THE TREATY OF MIDDLE PLANTATION IN 1677. SO, WHEN MEMBERS OF THESE TRIBES WANT TO SEEK TO PURCHASE NEW LANDS AND ADD BACK PROPERTY THAT HAD BEEN THEIRS, THIS BILL WILL ALLOW THEM A MORE STREAMLINED PROCESS AROUND DGS SIMPLY WITH REVIEW OF THE SECRETARY OF THE COMMONWEALTH AND APPROVAL BY THE GOVERNOR.
