2020- SGAC Letter: Advance an Office of Justice Services’ Budget Inclusive of Current Changes

SGAC urged OJS to advance a budget request to the Department of the Interior’s Office of Policy Management and Budget and the Office of Management and Budget that adequately captures the additional financial obligation that has arisen as a result of the Department’s unilateral decision to open seven Cold Case Offices, concurrent jurisdictional obligations in P.L.280 states, and the expanded public safety and justice responsibilities that have been imposed on the Department as a result of the McGirt v. Oklahoma decision.
