Audio from SCIA hearing for nomination of Vince Logan at OST

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

Logan, a member of the Osage Nation of Oklahoma, is an Individual Indian Money (IIM) account holder. He said he remembers going to the Bureau of Indian Affairs as a child when his parents sought information about their trust assets.

Logan has a background in the financial sector. If he is confirmed to the OST position, he said he will emphasize financial literacy in Indian Country, particularly among youth.

The position has been vacant for nearly five years. President Barack Obama announced Logan's nomination more than a year ago.

Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Washington), the chairwoman of the committee, vowed to move quickly on the nomination.
