Make the meeting attendance of Navajo Council delegates public
July 10, 2014 Professional Journal

Naabik’iyati Committee now on LEGISLATION 0120-14: Relating to Law and Order Committee, Health, Education and Human Services Committee, Naabik’iyati’ Committee and Navajo Nation Council; Amending 2 N.N.C. § 183 (E) and Rule 5 of the Rules of Order for Standing Committees of the Navajo Nation Council to Reduce the Quorum Requirement to Three (3) Committee Members for the Health, Education and Human Services Committee (Sponsor: Honorable Jonathan L. Hale)

DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
I kow we have quorum problem and we’re all campaigning but what are we telling the voters.

DELEGATE ALTON SHEPHERD
I support 0120-14 because this is the age of social media and why couldn’t our committee rules be amended to allow committee members to attend committee meetings via Skype.

DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
0120-14 does not comply with Title 2 and so it is not properly before this committee. The public waits for committees to get a quorum.

DELEGATE ALTON SHEPHERD
0120-14 is not out of order.

DELEGATE KATHERINE BENALLY
0120-14 is enabling our colleagues to be absent. The speaker pro temp bates shud put attendance record of delegates out to constituents. make it public. Congress and states do it. we operate in secrecy. I oppose this.

SPEAKER PRO TEMP BATES
0120-14 is out of order.

DELEGATE TSOSIE
And who ran out to chapter meeting? I support Delegate Benally’s call for the attendance records of delegates to be made public.
