Executive Director Rico Frias Testifies At Senate Committee On Indian Affairs


Last Wednesday, NAFOA Executive Director Rico Frias testified before the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs (SCIA) on Native American Priorities for the 118th Congress.

As part of that testimony, Executive Director Frias spoke about NAFOA’s legislative priorities for the 118th Congress. He highlighted necessary tax changes that would ensure parity for tribes and economic development policies that would stimulate tribal businesses.

NAFOA would like to thank Chairman Schatz (D-HI), Vice Chair Murkowski (R-AK), and all of the Members of the Committee for the invitation and the opportunity for NAFOA to participate in the hearing.  We look forward to working together to advance Indian Country’s priorities.
