Native American Language Bill Passes U.S. Senate Committee


Legislation having to do with the Native Language Immersion Student Achievement Act, which was introduced by United States Senators Brian Schatz, Jon Tester, Martin Heinrich, Heidi Heitkamp, and Tom Udall, was advanced by the Senate Affairs Committee on Wednesday.

The Native Language Immersion Student Achievement Act creates a new grant initiative to establish or expand Native language immersion programs. Under the bill, overhead costs would be limited and resource demands on tribal and school administrators seeking language immersion funding would be reduced.
