WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 2003

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson (D) fulfilled a campaign promise to elevate Indian affairs in state government.

He signed a bill yesterday that will pave the way for an Indian Affairs Department. Its secretary, Bernie Teba, former executive director of the Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Council (ENIPC), will be part of the state Cabinet.

Richardson, a former Clinton Cabinet member, has appointed a record number of Native Americans to high-level positions in his administration.
