USET Passes Resolution in Support of Toxic Research Act

On February 11, the United South and Eastern Tribes, Inc., (USET)—comprised of 26 federally-recognized Tribal Nation members--passed a resolution in support of S.901 and H.R.1769, the Toxic Exposure Research Act, reported Stephen Bowers of the Seminole Tribe of Florida who serves as the chair of the USET Veterans Affairs Committee. “This means our USET Legislative Affairs staff will now start calling congressman and senators to get on board with helping to pass the two bills,” said Bowers, who also serves as liaison to the Florida Governor’s Council on Indian Affairs; as VVA National Minority Affairs Vice Chair for Native Americans; as president of VVA Chapter 23; and as president of the American Indian Veterans Memorial Initiative.
