The Fourth Osage Nation Congress will meet for its 12th Special Session starting Tuesday Feb. 23 in the Chambers building in Pawhuska.
Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear informed the Congress of his plans for the special session during the Feb. 5 emergency special session. Standing Bear called for the emergency session for the Congress to approve a sovereign immunity waiver for the purchase agreement executed to purchase the 43,000-acre Bluestem Ranch from Turner Enterprises owned by TV media mogul Ted Turner.
The Feb. 5 executive proclamation for the special session states the Congress will consider:
– Ratifying those actions taken during the emergency 11th special session.
– Revisiting proposed amendments for the Nation’s election code and rules/ regulations.
– A supplemental appropriation for the Nation’s Division of Governmental Operations.
Special sessions may last up to 10 days and session topics will be discussed in Congressional committee meetings, which will be scheduled as necessary. For more information, visit the ON Congressional/ Legislative Branch website at: www.osagenation-nsn.gov/who-we-are/congress-legislative-branch
