Governor Dannel P. Malloy has written to the president to take issue with proposed changes to the process for granting federal recognition to Native Indian tribes. Malloy said in a letter delivered Monday to President Obama that the proposals as written would unfairly affect the state of Connecticut because of criteria that would appear to benefit three tribes that already have lost bids for recognition. He said consequences of approval for those tribes would be ‘‘devastating’’ because they have pending claims to vast areas of fully developed land. The state’s entire congressional delegation has also expressed opposition to the rules lawmakers say would water down requirements for recognition.
