Federally Recognized Tribes to receive Stimulus Funds

Wow..this is terrific news..  Obama's Stimulus Plan Benefits Tribes

President Barack Obama will sign the national economic recovery bill that includes $2.5 billion in stimulus funds for Indian Country.

"It is important that we honor the government-to-government relationship with Indian tribes in this bill and that the funds intended for reservation economies be provided directly to Indian tribes so that they may begin to address their dire economic conditions," said Rep. Dale Kildee (D-Michigan), the co-chairman of the Congressional Native American Caucus.

I am kinda reading this government to government relationship thing as it cuts both ways.  Me thinks that if the state government refuses stimulus funds, the tribal government may apply for these funds.  What do you think?
