A note from the LOC Chair

Shekoli,
Welcome to the Oneida Legislative Operating Committee (LOC) webpage.

As I begin my third term on the LOC, I am proud to look back and see all we have accomplished; and I am also looking forward to seeing how much we will accomplish during the 2017-2020 term.

The LOC carries out the legislative responsibilities of our government. These specific responsibilities include:

  • Processing all proposals to create, change or repeal Oneida laws.
  • Processing all proposals to create, change or repeal the bylaws for each of our Nation’s boards, committees and commissions.
  • Developing, maintaining and publishing the Oneida Register on the Tribal website.

The LOC’s fundamental goals remain the same – to improve our Nation and the quality of life enjoyed by the membership, while still remaining mindful of our obligations to the Seventh Generation. In all of our legislative work, we seek to reaffirm our sovereign status while at the same time developing a strong, fixed foundation that will lead our Nation and our People to even greater progress – and success – in the future.

Traditionally, it has been the Oneida way to seek consensus when making decisions that affect the Nation; and the LOC also remains committed to that philosophy. We are dedicated to providing the membership with the greatest amount of information possible about our lawmaking process and our legislative efforts. We are also dedicated to maximizing the membership’s involvement and input in our legislative process.

On behalf of the LOC, I would like to invite the membership to become involved with our work – please attend LOC meetings and public meetings; and during public comment periods, please submit comments about our legislative proposals.  And please feel welcome to contact any individual member of the LOC to ask questions, share information, or give us your opinions. The LOC exists to serve the membership, and we are best able to do that when we hear from each individual member.

Yaw^ko,
David P. Jordan, Chairperson
Oneida Legislative Operating Committee
