Stevens tries to kill tribal courts

ANCHORAGE - U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, with a few sentences tucked into a spending bill, is moving to end federal funding for Alaska tribal courts and tribal police officers.

Stevens, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, explained the shift as a matter of efficiency. There is not enough money for each of Alaska's 227 federally recognized tribes to have its own court system and police force, says a committee report explaining the provision in the spending bill the panel passed last week.
