It's one of four public hearings around the country that the advisory committee will hold. Information gathered will be used to make policy recommendations to the attorney general in late 2014.

The Bismarck meeting will be 8:30 a.m. at the Ramkota Hotel, 800 S. Third St.

Members of the task force include former Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., and Anita Fineday, director of child welfare at the White Earth Indian Reservation. Also present will be Associate Attorney General Tony West.

Michelle Rivard-Parks, assistant director of UND's Tribal Judicial Institute, will be among the expert witnesses.
