The Tribal Labor Advisory Committee (TLAC) was established in 2011 with the first meeting held on December 8th, 2011. The committee was charged with developing strategies to enhance Native American Labor opportunities on state and federal projects. A set of eight recommendations was developed as a result of the draft TLAC work plan approved by committee resolution on April 9th, 2012. The final recommendations document was approved by committee resolution on July 26, 2012 and endorsed and supported by the WisDOT Secretary on September 17, 2012.
Today, TLAC has developed a fresh set of recommendations that guide the committee and leadership.
