DELEGATE LEONARD PETE
I hope Speaker Pro Temp Bates that you don’t get in habit of Speaker Naize. All his staff would go to a meeting instead of just one. And then he’d have staff buy a “bunch of junk” for parades. Speaker’s staff also held meetings in Phoenix and places away from Window Rock.
DELEGATE JONATHAN NEZ
$109,000 capital outlay. $41,000 for new vehicle for speaker, Tahoe. I don’t know about that. What is going on? Shall we move to other pressing items. We entertained bill for attorneys for Eastern Navajo Land Commission and then we have to beg prez not to use his red pen. And we cud use this Capital Outlay for some of those attorneys for Eastern Navajo Land Commission.
DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
Let’s use this to develop Navajo C-span. I’ve been working with Ms Ben of Navajo Broadcast Services and if she cud give me her business unit number, we cud fund her and leave in speaker’s office. there are certain equipment that can be used. I’ll quote a sheepherder who decided he wouldn’t herd sheep because he wanted to watch Navajo Broadcast Services.
C-Span is where any tribal government activities would be broadcast. What we need is equipment, over $100,000. so we’ll take LDA increase because informing elders more important.
AMENDMENT: REALLOCATE $49,999.09 FOR NEW TAHOE FOR SPEAKER, OBJECT CODE 9160, TO COMMUNICATIONS, OBJECT CODE 7410, FOR THE PURPOSES OF DEVELOPING COMMUNICATION AND MEDIA OUTREACH TO THE PUBLIC ESPECIALLY NAVAJO ELDER POPULATION, IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE NAVAJO NATION BROADCAST SERVICES.
