Council Secretary/Treasurer Jerri Lynn Barlese literally had to fly back to Reno from Tucson, Arizona (see story below), and then board another plane for Albuquerque, New Mexico, to attend the U.S. Department of Justice training to prevent the State of Nevada from asserting jurisdiction on the Summit Lake Reservation.
Council members have been attending different aspects of this training for some time.
This part of the training was on the software the federal government designed for Tribes to register convicted sex offenders in accordance with unfunded federal law mandates.
Council Secretary/Treasurer Jerri Lynn Barlese will discuss her trips during her report at the Saturday, Nov. 21 Special Council Meeting.
