Even though the Senate Indian Affairs Committee approved Carl Artman and sent his nomination for Assistant Secretary Indian Affairs to the full Senate for confirmation last term, an unrelated partisan dispute kept the full Senate from confirming Artman before the end of the 109th Congress. So, the new Senate Indian Affairs Committee, led by Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) will reconsider Artman's nomination to the ASIA position in a hearing on Thursday. The Committee is expected to approve Artman again and send his nomination to the floor of the Senate for confirmation.
