DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
section 9 has different “available assets” language. We are making serious changes on the fly and tells me what advisors have drafted and they really didn’t think of these things and that’s not good.
This is the first time we’re doing this. you shud have come with complete legislation, charts, examples. now making serious changes and bothering me. Modified Section 8 language better and assume covers fee lands in Eastern Agency.
Maybe the better thing to do is have more complete legislation as go forward. Probably bond counsel charging $400 an hour and flying back and forth to DC and actually attorney shouldn’t charge us. But modified language getting better.
DELEGATE LORENZO CURLEY
When look at language, can’t find anything in SEction 9 that differs from Section 8 is full faith and credit language which is legal term.
