Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada) says he will consider working with Western Shoshone tribes on their land claims.

Reid is backing a bill to distribute $138 million to tribal members for 23 million acres of land. Many won't accept the money because they believe the Western Shoshone Nation never lost title to the land.
