WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, March 9, at 2:15 PM EST, the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs (SCIA) will hold an oversight hearing on “the President’s FY2017 Indian Country Budget.”
Last month, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the SCIA, sent a views and estimates letter to the Senate Budget Committee to consider when preparing the fiscal year 2017 budget resolution. In the letter Barrasso emphasized the federal government’s responsibility to honor its government-to-government relationship with tribes. He also referenced budget requests made by the administration, and highlighted programs that the SCIA is recommending for inclusion in the budget.
