Mr. Turner expressed concern that the involved tribes have not yet been fully consulted in the site selection process.

Representative McNulty and Ms. Contiguglia discussed the history of the memorial's approval. Mr. Halaas discussed his consultations with the three tribes. He noted the importance of connecting the memorial with the Civil War Monument on the Capitol grounds.

Representative McNulty recommended that conversations continue around a final location for the memorial. Mr. Lee noted additional considerations with the tribes' preferred location.
