"Additionally, it is a privilege to work on behalf of Indian Country as a member of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs and a distinct honor to be re-elected to serve as Chairman of the Committee for the 116th Congress. I will continue to advance the priorities of empowering tribal economic development as well as improving public safety, health care and education in tribal communities. I look forward to again working with Vice Chairman Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) to ensure we have another productive Congress on behalf of Indian Country."
