A Message from Tribal Chairman Rodney Butler

The power to tax is a foundation of sovereignty providing the means by which a government ensures public safety, provides health and human services, and promotes economic development. Nowhere in America can one state or town tap into another state or town's coffers to support its own efforts. Yet, that's exactly what happens to Mashantucket - a neighboring town takes revenue that should rightfully belong to the Reservation. Please help correct this injustice, support H.B. 5474. It's a matter of fairness and equity.
