"Hotel Attorneys with an important and different perspective on the Stimulus Bill: How will it help tribal governments finance hotel projects in Indian Country

On March 15, Hotel Attorney, Catherine Holmes, sat down with our good friend, Valerie Red-Horse of Red-Horse Financial Group, to talk about how the American Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 will help tribal governments finance new hotel developments on tribal land.

Valerie is a leading investment banker for tribal development projects, including gaming resorts, hotels, conference centers and other developments, and has helped tribal governments all over the United States develop over $2 billion of projects over the last ten years. Based on her years of experience, Valerie knows the problems that tribal governments have had obtaining tax-exempt financing, and the opportunities that the new law will present to tribes seeking to develop hotels and other projects on their reservation lands.

Hotel attorney partner, Catherine Holmes, is a senior member of JMBM's Global Hospitality Group. A couple of days ago, she sat down with long-time friend and client, Valerie Redhorse, to talk about how the Financial Stimulus Bill might affect financing for Native Americans."
