To provide funding to improve economic conditions for Native
Americans, if the federal government provides funding for the existing
statutorily mandated and state-funded Native American tuition waiver
program that allows a Native American who is either an enrolled member
of an American Indian Tribal Nation or an Alaska Native Village
recognized by the federal government or is a child or grandchild of such

an enrolled member to attend Fort Lewis college on a tuition-free basis,
the bill:
  • Requires the statutorily mandated annual general fund
appropriation to Fort Lewis college to pay the full cost of
tuition for such students to be reduced by an amount equal
to the amount of the federal funding;
  • Requires an amount of general fund money equal to the
amount of the reduction in the annual general fund
appropriation to be appropriated to the commission of
Indian affairs (commission);
  • Requires the commission to use the money to contract with
a Colorado-based nonprofit organization that has a primary
mission of improving economic conditions for Indians for
coordination, oversight, and provision of programs and
grants that support that mission; and
  • Requires the nonprofit organization to report to the
commission regarding its implementation of the contract at
least once per year and to detail in its reports how it has
expended the money provided to it by the commission.
