A hearing on the Fighting Sioux nickname has been set for 2:30 p.m. Monday, the first day of a special session of the North Dakota Legislature.

The joint hearing before the House and Senate education committees will be in the Capitol's Pioneer Room.

Legislative leaders are in Bismarck to prepare a schedule for what's anticipated to be a busy weeklong session dealing with health care reform, redistricting and disaster relief as well as UND's nickname and Indian-head logo.

They are expected to advance a bill that would essentially overturn a law adopted earlier this year during the regular session, returning responsibility for the nickname's fate to the State Board of Higher Education.
