Notice of public comment and hearing on statute revisions


Band Assembly is accepting comments on proposed procedural rules and other amendments to Title 3 and has scheduled a public hearing for April 7, 2021, at 11 a.m. via Zoom. Click here for the official notice.

Band Assembly informed Band members in a letter that the Legislative Branch is set to begin live-streaming its regular meetings to the public this June. The new Rules of the Band Assembly would replace Robert's Rules of Order and would govern both the structure and flow of the meetings.

The public comment period for these proposed changes has been set at 15 business days. Written comments can be submitted to no later than 5 p.m. on April 2, 2021, with “Title 3“ as the subject.

Band members and employees may also submit written comments in person to the District I legislative office.

To participate in the public hearing, contact Legislative Affairs Director Brianna Boyd via phone at 320-630-8702 or via email at

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Band Assembly does not consider it appropriate to conduct formal public hearings in all districts. However, Band members from all districts are encouraged to participate in the Zoom hearing.
