Here at Navajo Council Naabik’iyati Committee, where committee now on LEGISLATION 0192-13, Native American Energy Act.
DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
Talk about nonsense, Navajo Environmental Protection Agency always gets in way, even when trying to grade a road. So maybe we should give to presidential candidates about their recommendations. But I think we cud use this, it’s a good act. It’s trying to streamline to all procedures of energy development on Indian land. And we cud come in with book of what we are experiencing.
But certain portions of bill limit to Alaskan Land Claims Settlement land. We cud really use this proposed bill.
Also talk about BLM fees so put in this bill that federal benefits to Navajo persons not be affected cuz of proposals of oil and gas in Mancos Shale, their medicare and other benefits are being affected. Navajo people asking if shud take financial benefits of oil and gas drilling or federal social services.
Where are all our attorneys? They went to Twin Arrows. We get accused of lawyers running window rock which was a ghost town. Nothing cud be done.
