LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester today secured a major investment to help preserve and promote Native languages in a must pass budget bill.
Tester secured $1.9 million for Native language immersion in the 2018 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriation Bill, a $300,000 increase from last year's budget.
"Promoting Native languages preserves rich history, strengthens students' cultural identity, and increases outcomes in the classroom," Tester said. "These additional resources will help strengthen Native language immersion programs across Indian Country."
