Public Hearing November 12 for Revisor's Office Legislation


Secretary-Treasurer Sheldon Boyd has scheduled a formal public hearing via Zoom on November 12 at 10 a.m. to hear input on proposed legislation that would establish a Revisor's Office.

A public hearing is required by Band Statute on any bill with alters, amends or repeals Titles 1, 3, 4, and 5, Chapter 1 of Title 2 and Subchapters I to III of Chapter 3 of Title 24.

The proposed legislation would transfer the responsibility of the Solicitor General to codify ordinances into Band statute to the proposed Revisor's Office, which would require changes to Title 4.

Band Assembly is also considering placing the Revisor's Office in the Legislative Branch, which would require an amendment of Title 3 — Legislative Branch.
