“I commend the Mooresville school officials, teachers, and police department for their vigilance. Cooperation between school officials and law enforcement ensured this plan never came to fruition. Communication, like Mooresville demonstrated yesterday, was a key discussion at the School Safety Summit I hosted last week,” said Rokita.
I have visited over 30 schools during the last few years where we discussed school safety.

“It is not the National Labor Relations Board’s place to impinge upon the employment preferences of sovereign tribes, just as it is not able to do so with state and local governments. Tribal governments alone, accountable to their tribal members and employees, should decide the labor practices for the entities they own on their own lands, just as state and local governments can now do under the NLRA. Drawing this line in statute not only helps tribal government, it also helps remind the executive branch of the sovereignty of state and local governments,” said Rep. Rokita.
