BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) The president of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe is planning to resign this week, citing "obstacles and opposition at every step by the legislative branch" of the tribal government.

The Billings Gazette reports L. Jace Killsback's resignation, which will take effect Friday, caps a tumultuous two years as the tribe's top elected official. He was removed from office by the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Council, only to win re-election two months later and be the subject of a challenge by the runner-up in the special election.

In the nine months since he resumed his post in January, Killsback has said he has watched the tribal council encroach on duties reserved by the executive branch in the tribe's constitution.

Killsback and a tribal council spokesman did not immediately return phone messages left by the newspaper.
