Richard testified that “in furtherance of its longstanding policies of Indian self-determination, tribal self- governance and tribal economic self-sufficiency, it is time for Congress to provide parity for tribal governments under the NLRA. In this context, parity encompasses the quality of being treated equally under the law alongside Federal and State governments.”
