Making Certain Technical Corrections, United States Congress, Us Senate

US Government Documents related to Indigenous Nations

This report from the United States (US) Senate Committee on Indian Affairs dated November 19, 1993, was written to accompany US Senate Bill 1654 which proposes technical corrections to Indian laws. The report specifies that US Senate Bill 1654 proposes to extend the deadline for the sale of lands to their former owners (per the specifications of US Public Law 102-575 which contains the “Three Affiliated Tribes and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Equitable Compensation Act”). US Senate Bill 1654 became US Public Law 103-263 on May 31, 1994.

Helping "Concerned Volunteers Working Out Of Their Kitchens": Funding Citizen Participation In Administrative Decision Making, Marcia Valiante, W. A. Bogart Oct 1993

Helping "Concerned Volunteers Working Out Of Their Kitchens": Funding Citizen Participation In Administrative Decision Making, Marcia Valiante, W. A. Bogart

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

Broad citizen participation in decision making by administrative bodies is important in achieving fairness, improving the quality of decisions, and realizing accountability and legitimacy. Yet such broad participation often hinges on adequate financial capacity. In this regard, the authors review a number of mechanisms used for funding citizen participation. These mechanisms are variations of essentially two models: public funding (direct and indirect) and direct funding by proponents. The article concludes with a plea for such mechanisms--even in a time of severe financial restraint-as one reflection of a vigorous participatory democracy.


The Problems Of Public Choice: The Case Of Short Limitation Periods, Kent Roach Oct 1993

The Problems Of Public Choice: The Case Of Short Limitation Periods, Kent Roach

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

This article examines public choice as a predictor of legislative behaviour and as a guide for statutory and constitutional interpretation. It focuses on short limitation periods, which have often been criticized as special interest legislation benefiting well-organized groups, such as medical doctors. The author concludes that the economic assumptions of public choice cannot adequately explain complexities in interest group behaviour, and that the Canadian legislative process has the ability to advance the interests of diffuse and unorganized groups, such as patients. The author also argues that given the absence of normative content in public choice analysis, Canadian courts have rightly ...

Saving The Self?, Daniel R. Ortiz Mar 1993

Saving The Self?, Daniel R. Ortiz

Michigan Law Review

In a recent article, Law, Politics, and the Claims of Community, Stephen A. Gardbaum accurately diagnoses one of the greatest problems in contemporary political and legal theory: the "complete confusion" about what communitarianism means.

Gardbaum's basic insight is, I think, both powerful and correct. We have been seeing contradiction and conflict where there often is none at all. As important and salutary as his account is, however, it deserves response. His taxonomy of communitarianism, the heart of his piece, well shows that communitarianism makes fundamentally different types of claims. It does not, however, make as many different kinds of ...

The Paradox Of Ideology, Justin Schwartz Jan 1993

The Paradox Of Ideology, Justin Schwartz

Justin Schwartz

A standard problem with the objectivity of social scientific theory in particular is that it is either self-referential, in which case it seems to undermine itself as ideology, or self-excepting, which seem pragmatically self-refuting. Using the example of Marx and his theory of ideology, I show how self-referential theories that include themselves in their scope of explanation can be objective. Ideology may be roughly defined as belief distorted by class interest. I show how Marx thought that natural science was informed by class interest but not therefore necessarily ideology. Capitalists have an interest in understanding the natural world (to a ...
