U.S. Department of Treasury Secretary urged to establish an Office of Tribal Affairs

HELENA, Mont. – A group of senators, including Senator Steve Daines, is urging the U.S. Department of Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, to establish an Office of Tribal Affairs.

The group wrote a letter to Secretary Yellen, saying the recent tribal consultations and interactions between Treasury and tribal nations underscore the need for in-house expertise at Treasure on tribal policy matters.
