DELEGATE LEONARD PETE says too expensive to keep NGS open. NGS owners told Navajo that it would be cheaper to construct three power plants in Phx. they are looking for cheaper way to generate power. if unions and coalition want to keep operating then have to sell coal as cheap as possible, and maybe be free coal. to lower cost of operating NGS and coal mine unions and workers will have to cut their salaries. also concerned about all the negotiations that were done with NGS owners?
