Leaders Will Hold First Native American Caucus Meeting Wednesday

Sen. Albert Hale (D-2), tribal leaders and members of the legislature will meet tomorrow in a newly created caucus to address economic issues as they relate to tribal communities in Arizona.

When: Wed., March 25, 9 to 10 a.m.
Where: House of Representatives, Rooms 35 and 38 (basement)

“It is our hope to also assist tribal members to increase their knowledge of the legislative process and to facilitate a discourse with their legislators,” said Sen. Hale. “We must build and continue a dialogue between tribal governments and members of the Arizona Legislature that benefits everyone during these difficult economic times in our state’s history.”

The caucus was formed by Sen. Hale and Rep. Chris Deschene, both of District 2 in Northern Arizona.

Media is welcome.
