Yá’át’ééh abiní Relatives/Frens/Humans, In a continuing effort to get some of the $600M CARES Act money to the People, Chapters, the Executive Branch, Judicial Branch, Legislative Branch, the Navajo Council Budget & Finance Committee is meeting at 8:30 am, today, Friday, 6.12.20. The proposed agenda is posted in the attachment. And as usual, if you want to attend the BFC meeting, which is a TELECONFERENCE, please CALL (425) 436-6375 and then a voice prompter will ask for PASSCODE: 805049. It’s up to you if you want to introduce yourself. But Please MUTE your phone or everyone who is on the call will hear your conversation.
Yesterday, the Navajo Council Naabiki’iyati Committee reviewed President Nez & Vice President Lizer proposed expenditure plan for the $600M and according to the Committee, Nez & Lizer failed to include Chapters and the Judicial Branch in the Nez-Lizer Spending Plan for the Nation’s $600M.
The Nez-Lizer Expenditure Plan is in Legislation 0116-20, which I placed in my attached blog post. Council Delegate Edmund Yazzie​ is sponsoring the Nez-Lizer spending plan..
The Naabi’iyati tabled Yazzie’s legislation for Nez and Lizer so they can sit down with Nez & Lizer to go over their plan, Chief Justice JoAnn Jayne on his proposed spending plan.
I also posted the Council’s resolution CMY-44-20, which Nez line item vetoed, in the attached blog post. It is a very large file. The Naabik’iyati voted to recommend a Council override of Nez’s line item veto yesterday, Thursday, 6.11.20.
