Nez Perce Tribe struggles to provide health care


The Nez Perce Tribe of Idaho says federal funds fail to meet the health care needs of its people.

The tribe receives about $8 million a year from the Indian Health Service. Chairwoman Julia Davis-Wheeler said that's not enough to cover costs at the tribe's clinics and dental facilities.

The tribe hosted the Department of Health and Human Services and the House Appropriations Committee on Friday.
