Senate Indian Affairs business meeting and hearing
The Senate Indian Affairs Committee is holding a business meeting and hearing next Thursday, June 19.

The agenda for the business meeting has not been released. Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota), the chairman of the committee, said last week that he wants to subpoena the Bureau of Indian Affairs over a long-delayed detention facilities report.

The meeting will be followed by a hearing on a draft bill to address law enforcement in Indian Country. The committee released an updated version of the proposed legislation after taking input from tribes during four hearings and a number of listening sessions.
