Not much action on bill to recognize Muscogee Nation of Florida
The Muscogee Nation of Florida hasn't seen much action on its federal recognition bill.

S.530 and H.R.1899 were introduced in early 2009. But neither the House nor the Senate have held a hearing on the bill although Chief Ann Tucker testified at a Senate Indian Affairs Committee oversight hearing nearly a year ago.

“When we first started to try, the group averaged an 8th grade education and we certainly don’t have a budget for lobbyists,” Tucker told The Watson Sun. “But we are fairly intelligent and are not afraid.”
