Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     1-1-13.   Tribal referendum on jurisdiction of Indian lands--Notice of result to county commissioners--Failure to take referendum. No assumption of civil or criminal jurisdiction shall become effective under the provisions of §§ 1-1-12 to 1-1-16, inclusive, until the tribal council of a tribe over which state jurisdiction is to be taken, shall have considered a referendum in which all persons eligible to vote at elections held for the purposes of electing officers of such tribe, shall have been given an opportunity to approve or disapprove such assumption of jurisdiction. A majority of the persons so voting in such a referendum must cast affirmative votes in favor thereof before such approval shall be given, and the tribal council shall then notify the board of county commissioners of the counties concerned as to the results of such referendum. Provided, however, that if the tribe has failed to take action as above prescribed, within one year from and after October first, 1957, it shall be deemed that the referendum has been dispensed with and that the tribe has consented to and does approve the assumption of jurisdiction herein provided, and that the county or counties concerned may then proceed as set forth in § 1-1-14.
