Senate Indian Affairs Committee hearing
Monday, May 22, 2006

The Senate Indian Affairs Committee is holding a hearing this Thursday on Indian education.

The hearing will be the committee's second on education during the 109th Congress. The first was held June 16, 2005, when the Bush administration came under fire for its commitment to Indian children.

The hearing takes place at 9:30am in Room 485 of the Russell Senate Office Building. A witness list is not yet available.
