Lawmakers cancel judiciary, tribal addresses to 2017 Legislature

Some pomp and fanfare that typically accompanies the opening of the legislative session has been moved into private session in 2017 in part due to security concerns. Though not mandated, it has been tradition that one Native American tribe be given the opportunity to address a joint session of the legislature. That address has been removed from the schedule and private meetings between the tribes and legislative leaders will take place instead.
