To require the Secretary of the Interior to plan, design, and construct a new school at Third Mesa, Arizona, on the Hopi Indian Reservation.


IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

February 23, 2009

Mr. Franks of Arizona (for himself, Mrs. Kirkpatrick of Arizona, Ms. Giffords, Mr. Grijalva, Mr. Pastor of Arizona, and Mr. Mitchell) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Education and Labor


A BILL

To require the Secretary of the Interior to plan, design, and construct a new school at Third Mesa, Arizona, on the Hopi Indian Reservation.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Hopi School Replacement Act of 2009”.

SEC. 2. Findings.

Congress finds as follows:

(1) The Hopi Tribe is located approximately 90 miles northeast of the City of Flagstaff in Northern Arizona. The Hopi Tribe is the only non-gaming Indian tribe in Arizona and, therefore, has no other financial resources with which to improve the conditions of its schools.

(2) The current school facilities have numerous structural deficiencies that create at-risk conditions for occupants and neither provides an appropriate environment as compared to off-reservation facilities.

(3) Both school facilities are over 125 years old and have been described by two different Bureau of Indian Affairs inspections as having exceeded their usefulness and functional life.

SEC. 3. Third Mesa, Arizona, new school construction.

Not later than 3 years after funds are made available for this section, the Secretary of the Interior, in coordination with the Hopi Tribe, shall plan, design, and construct a new school at Third Mesa, Arizona, on the Hopi Indian Reservation, to replace the Hopi Day School and the Hotevilla Bacavi Community School.
