Findings and purposes
(a) FindingsThe Congress finds that—
there are at least 600 open dumps on Indian and Alaska Native lands;
these dumps threaten the health and safety of residents of Indian and Alaska Native lands and contiguous areas;
the United States holds most Indian lands in trust for the benefit of Indian tribes and Indian individuals; and
most Indian tribal governments and Alaska Native entities lack the financial and technical resources necessary to close and maintain these dumps in compliance with applicable Federal laws.
(b) PurposesThe purposes of this chapter are to—
provide financial and technical assistance to Indian tribal governments and Alaska Native entities, either directly or by contract, to close such dumps in compliance with applicable Federal standards and regulations, or standards promulgated by an Indian tribal government or Alaska Native entity, if such standards are more stringent than the Federal standards.
