Three ALANA legislators are part of the powerful conference committees negotiating the final budget settlement in the state.

Senator Foung Hawj is on the Transportation Conference Committee.

Senator Hayden is on the Human Services Conference Committee.

Senator Champion is on the Judiciary Conference Committee.

Representation of the ALANA communities is missing in the House team raising the important question:  Are the over $20 billion in ALANA economic interests adequately represented in the legislature?
