Trump Signs Missing And Murdered Native Americans Bill

       President Donald Trump has signed a bill named for a Fargo murder victim that addresses cases of missing and murdered Native Americans. 

       Savanna’s Act, named for Savanna Greywind, passed the House last month after passing the Senate earlier this year. 

      The bill was introduced by former Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota last Congress and reintroduced by Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska in the current Congress.

        The law is meant to help police track, solve, and prevent crimes against Native Americans. It directs the Departments of Justice and Interior to consult with American Indian tribes while developing national law enforcement guidelines.
