Wis. lawmaker to meet with urban tribal members

MADISON (AP) -- A state lawmaker plans to meet with American Indians living in Milwaukee.

Sen. Spencer Coggs is a Milwaukee Democrat. He says he wants to learn about issues native Americans face in urban settings. He says he especially wants to hear about problems the Legislature and state government might be able to solve.

The meeting is set for Thursday morning in the Woodland Dreams Ballroom at the Forest County Potawatomi's casino in Milwaukee. Potawatomi Chairman Phillip Shopodock will open the meeting.
