I just listened to ad claiming personal property rights would be redistributed to the feds, the state and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes if the CSKT compact passes.

“1. All stock, municipal, domestic, commercial & industrial rights ARE 100% protected on and off the reservation. Compact Art. III.G.1.12, Compact Art. III.G.1,Compact Art. III.G.1,Compact Art. III.G.1.
