Alaska Native Corporations' contracting status under fire again -

Four ANCs among the top 100 recipients of contract awards

Sen. Claire McCaskill will work again this year to end Alaska Native Corporations' special contracting status.

The Missouri Democrat introduced S. 236 on Jan. 31, which would eliminate the preferences and special rules under the Small Business Administration's 8(a) Business Development program for ANCs, which are partially owned by tribal people in Alaska.

She proposed the legislation in November at the end of that Congress, as did Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), who was chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee at the time.
