The Oregon House has voted to give tribal police the same off-reservation authority as non-tribal officers.  Yesterday, lawmakers voted in favor of it despite objections from county sheriffs officials who said the measure would open the door to lawsuits and give tribal officers unprecedented authority. Representatives approved the measure on a 33-25 vote after GOP representatives also argued the bill doesn’t have enough oversight to ensure the tribes comply with state law.  The measure now goes back to the Senate, which has already approved the bill but is scheduled to decide Wednesday evening whether to accept changes made in the House. Authorities from Warm Springs support the idea and have pushed for it. Governor Kitzhaber has said he also supports the bill.
