President Barack Obama joined by Members of Congress and Agriculture Secretary to sign the Claims Resolution Act Bill of 2010. For many years African American farmers claimed they were discriminated against when they applied for federal farm loans, making it more difficult for them to stay in business and maintain their farms. The bill will settle a lawsuit by black farmers who alleged racial discrimination.

The bill will provide a small measure of justice to Native Americans whose funds were held in trust by a government charged with looking out for them. And it represents a major step forward in my administration’s efforts to fulfill our responsibilities and strengthen our government-to-government relationship with the tribal nations.

As long as I have the privilege of serving as your President I will continue to do everything I can to restore that trust. And that’s why I am so extraordinarily proud to sign this bill today.
