The Constitution for the United States of America
Section 3 - Paragraph 2
The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this constitution shall be so construed as to prejudice any claims of the United States, or of any particular state
The Federal Congress has total control over all Territories, including the oversight and approval of all Laws, Rules, and Regulations.
As you will note when you examine the documents concerning the Missing 13th Amendment, Congress approved the publication of the Constitution for the United States of America containing the Missing 13th Amendment until at least 1876 when the Wyoming Territorial Laws were published. Congress was not mistaken for over 50 years about the validity of the true 13th Amendment.
