NAVAJO COUNCIL NOW ON LEGISLATION 0006-13: THE NAVAJO HOUSING AUTHORITY REFORM ACT OF 2013, AMENDING THE NAVAJO NATION CODE AT TITLE 6, CHAPTER 5, SECTIONS 606, 607, 614, 615
SPONSOR – DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
Hope merit based, Navajo Housing A board members have sufficient qualifications/experience for sound decision making which wud allow homebuyers. Page 3: prez given 60 days appoint NHS Board Commissioners, then Naabiki’yati’ Committee appoint & confirm. We found waiting too long and also question over whether Commissioners have legal right to office after term expires otherwise with other enterprises, and current NHA Commissioners are raising that question.
The other one too is that in the case of NHA, you have NHA attorney fighting on behalf of Board to fight for expired term. you cannot use resources of NHA to fight for your position after you term expires. Allow Naabi to appoint Board members.
DELEGATE ALTON SHEPHERD
There are 11 amendments, where says Resources & Development Committee, replace with Naabiki’yati Committee for appointment of NHA Board, transition, not remove all NHA Board at one time so like to have Legislative Services Director Platero read amendments into record.
AMENDMENT ONE, BY DELEGATE SHEPHERD:
VOTING AT 1:49 PM
