Bad Legislation

Moira Breen provides many links to details of a terrible new Senate Bill, sponsored by John McCain (what a surprise), that would change the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act to give Indian tribes an effective veto on the scientific study of all ancient human remains found in the United States. The veto would apply even to remains whose tribal affiliation is unknown.

You can get the gist of the issue here and here.
