Senate Bill 130 will be having it’s 2nd hearing tomorrow morning, February 2nd, in the Senate State Affairs Committtee. I expect the bill to pass out of this committee. I sincerely appreciated those who are ardent in preserving and restoring native languages in their testimonies and all the letters of support and resoulutions that we received in support of this important piece of legislation.

Here are a couple of links to some articles that have been published regarding this particular committee hearing:
