The board of supervisors in Santa Barbara County, California, voted 4-1 to appeal a land consolidation plan for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs approved the tribe's consolidation area and acquisition plan in June. County officials believe the action makes it easier for the tribe to acquire an additional 1,400 acres in trust.

The tribe has filed an application for the 1,400 acres. A decision hasn't been made but an appeal of the land consolidation plan could slow down the process.

News reports didn't say whether the appeal will take place in federal court or through the BIA's administrative review process.
