New Ordinance Modifies Child Support Code


On October 7, the Mille Lacs Band Assembly passed a Ordinance 01-21 modifying the Band’s Child Support Code — Title 8, Chapter 12. Chief Executive Melanie Benjamin signed the ordinance into law on October 8.

Although the Band Assembly has the statutory authority to pass Bills for presentation to the Chief Executive, the Band Assembly does not have the statutory authority to codify ordinances into existing Band statutes.
