SF0008 SEA0005 Missing and murdered indigenous persons-agency cooperation
HJ0003 HEJR0001 Supporting federal missing and murdered persons efforts.

Fremont County’s HD 33 Representative Andi Clifford sponsored bill no. HJ0003, and worked hard to see the judiciary sponsored bill no. SF0008 passed as well. Representative Clifford shared a few words about their passing:

I am humbled by the work of the Select Committee on Tribal Relations who worked hard during the interim in coordination with the Tribes, Governor Gordon’s task force on Missing and Murdered Indigenous People, law enforcement, service providers, tribal members looking for both local and state level solutions to address our missing and murdered people, those who are falling through data collection and complex jurisdictional cracks. This piece of legislation is a step in the right direction, but there is still more work to be done to address this epidemic. I look forward to doing my part to help keep the momentum we have so that we can improve processes that help with education, awareness and acknowledgment of those underlying issues that are the cause of this crisis.
