Sen. Franken measure to get loans to Indian Country garners bipartisan love

 


WASHINGTON – The Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe has been interested in installing solar panels on the reservation — which has soaring northern sun even in the winter — to help defray the costs of energy for low-income households.

In January, the tribal council's community development arm decided it would be helpful if those who lived on the reservation could also assemble the panels, which would provide a few jobs for the area.

A proposal by U.S. Sen. Al Franken that just got a bipartisan green light on Capitol Hill may actually make that a reality.
