 Tentative Meeting Agenda

Members continue to encourage a broad awareness of state-tribal issues across the country and raise the profile of tribal issues throughout state legislatures. The caucus has representatives from across the nation, including states with highest populations of Native Americans.  This helps to address tribal issues and develop public policies in cooperation with states and tribal governments. NCNASL’s Energy, Natural Resources and Transportation, Economic Development and Telecommunications, Education and Health and Human Services policy committees will hold informative sessions during the meeting. Caucus leadership, including chairs and vice-chairs of the policy committees shape the agenda for each session. Members attend all sessions provided by the policy committees. A portion of the meeting is also dedicated to Caucus business, where the caucus addresses and take action on policy resolutions. The policy resolutions are typically in relation, but not limited to, the topics addressed during the policy committee sessions at the annual meeting.
