Statement on Signing the Johnson-O'Malley Supplemental Indian Education Program Modernization Act
Today, I have signed into law S. 943, the "Johnson-O'Malley Supplemental Indian Education Program Modernization Act" (the "Act"). Section 2 of the Act amends the Johnson-O'Malley Act of 1934, creating a new section 7 that purports to require the Secretary of the Interior to submit an annual report recommending appropriate funding levels for a statutory program. My Administration will treat this provision in a manner consistent with Article II, section 3 of the Constitution, which provides the President with the discretion to recommend to the Congress only "such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient."
DONALD J. TRUMP
The White House,
December 31, 2018.
NOTE: S. 943, approved December 31, was assigned Public Law No. 115-404.
