Freedom Of Information Ordinance On Wed Tribal Council Agenda

Feather News

The consideration of a Freedom of Information ordinance (law) is listed on the agenda for tomorrow's Tribal Council meeting.

Currently there is no tribal law regarding information freedoms on the reservation although the all-volunteer Mohegan Constitution Commission had discussed variations of a proposed amendment prior to the Commission's disbandment by the Council of Elders early last year.

The Feather News has put in an information request to Tribal officials requesting a draft version of the freedom of information ordinance under consideration as resolution 2009-24.

Tribal Council meetings are held at 10 a.m. each Wednesday. No change in the regular meeting time has been posted.
