Comment period open for draft Revisor's Office statute


The legislative branch has posted a draft statute for public comment that would establish a Revisor's Office within the Mille Lacs Band government. The purposes of this proposed Revisor's Office would be to:

— ensure the annual compilation, updating, and publication of Band laws and official acts;

— provide confidential drafting services of proposed legislation and policy revisions to District Representatives; and

— establish a Tribal Register for the publication of Band statutes and policies, Executive Orders, Legislative Orders, Secretarial Orders, Solicitor’s Opinions, Commissioner’s Orders, and other official notices.

If enacted, the Revisor’s Code would enhance the legislative process of the Mille Lacs Band and ensure that updated Band laws and policies are accessible to enrolled Band members. The comment period for the proposed legislation closes on November 4.
