UP AND BLOGGING FROM NAVAJO COUNCIL CHAMBER, WINDOW ROCK, ARIZ.
THE COUNCIL’S NAA’BIKI’YATI’ COMMITTEE IN SESSION TO TAKE ACTION ON DELEGATE KATHERINE BENALLY’S LEGISLATION: $220 MILLION BOND FOR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS ACROSS THE REZ:
DELEGATE WALTER PHELPS HOLDING AMENDMENT FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR CIP ON FORMER BENNETT FREEEZE AREA:
DELEGATE DUANE TSINGINE
how many studies do you need/want? if this doesn’t pass, then regionalization or decentralization doesn’t pass then delegates from western agency will make amendment again. Housing is what former Bennett Freeze needs. I support this amendment.
DELEGATE DANNY SIMPSON
this $220 million bond is to get projects out to communities. The purpose of this and we use diferent terms but it’s to bring services. we hear about veterans waiting to get money and travel two time and only get $250 check and spend that trying to get check.
Accountablity! that’s what we heard during discussion of annual audit of 2011 Navajo budget. We want accountability at chapter level. And support support for frm Bennett Freeze. but need services at local level. Youth asking for jobs, scholarships. I’ll support Delegate Phelps amendment but only if it comes from Reserves or Personnel Lapse Fund.
