Business meeting added to Indian Affairs hearing

The Senate Indian Affairs Committee will hold a business meeting and oversight hearing this week.

The business meeting will focus on pending legislative business. An agenda hasn't been released.

The oversight hearing will address a Government Accountability Office report that said the Indian Health Service lost $15.9 million in property and wasted millions of dollars on equipment that isn't used by employees.

The meeting and hearing take place at 9:30am in Room 562 of the Senate Dirksen Office Building.
