Two Schatz-Authored Bills To Support Native Language Revitalization Among Those Enacted

 

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i), chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, issued the following statement celebrating President Biden signing nine Indian Affairs bills into law:

 

“These new laws advance key legislative priorities, including expansion of culturally-based Native American language revitalization efforts, construction of life-saving water systems for Tribes and surrounding communities, support for Tribal economic development, restoration of Tribal homelands, and more resources to combat the missing and murdered Indigenous peoples crisis,” said Chairman Schatz. “I thank President Biden for signing these bills into law.”
