Witness list for House hearing on Indian housing
The House Natural Resources Committee holds a hearing on Wednesday on an Indian housing bill.

H.R.2523, the Helping Expedite and Advance Responsible Tribal Homeownership (HEARTH) Act, was introduced on May 20. It allows tribes to approve trust land leases for home sites, cutting the Bureau of Indian Affairs out of what can be a long process.

The hearing takes place at 10am and will be broadcast on the committee web site. The witness list follows:
Panel 1
Mr. Jerry Gidner
Director, Bureau of Indian Affairs

Panel 2
Governor Everett Chavez
Governor, Santo Domingo Pueblo

The Honorable Harvey Moses, Jr.
Vice President, Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians

Mr. Arvin Trujillo
Executive Director, Division of Natural Resources, Navajo Nation

Ms. Cheryl A. Parish
Executive Director, Bay Mills Housing Authority
