Senate confirms Humetewa as U.S. Attorney for Arizona

WASHINGTON D.C. - U.S. Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) on Dec. 14 hailed the confirmation of Diane J. Humetewa to the role of U.S. Attorney for Arizona. She will be the first Native American woman to serve in this role. She was confirmed late last Thursday by the Senate after waiting nearly a year to be confirmed by President Bush.
