NAVAJO COUNCIL APPROVES LEGISLATION 0006-13: NAVAJO HOUSING AUTHORITY REFORM ACT OF 2013 WITH VOTE OF 21 IN FAVOR, 0 OPPOSED. SPONSORS – DELEGATES LEONARD TSOSIE AND KATHERINE BENALLY
DELEGATE EDMUND YAZZIE
Since only at 24 delegates, Naabi cud be oversight for law enforcement, natural resources, education, etc. If this legislation passes, we are heading in that direction. I believe that wud be strong input for areas we represent. With four committees, we are pushed to limits to attend committee meetings and chief of staff reminds us about attending Naabi. So this cud be first step. Maybe do work session. Always say when debate that we want to be on same page.
DELEGATE LORENZO BATES
Correct typo, replace “his” with his or her so Delegate Tsosie not considered male chauvanist. In caucus talked compromise and another compromise was to lok to RDC for approval of Housing Plan during Winter Session. But another concern, Page 2, section E: when read, first thing that comes to mind is conflict of interest if have homebuyers as NHA board members. But call for Cease Debate and Call for Vote.
