The Senate Indian Affairs Committee has scheduled a nomination hearing for Vince Logan to serve as the Special Trustee for American Indians.

President Barack Obama announced the nomination more than a year ago. It's not clear why Logan, a member of the Osage Nation of Oklahoma, never saw a confirmation hearing until now.

If he is confirmed, Logan will oversee trust reform at the Interior Department. The OST position has been vacant since January 2009 but the Obama administration, through the Secretarial Commission on Indian Trust Administration and Reform, has been asking tribes about the future efforts.

The hearing takes place at 2:30pm on Wednesday in Room 628 of the Senate Dirksen Office Building.
