DELEGATE CHARLES DAMON II
I also agree that more requests to the original three requests wud jeopardize entire legislation.
There is also another form. In all the excitement I forgot. So ask for Navajo Capital Improvement Projects Director Casey Begay to review.
I assumed that all documents ready. Mexican Springs has all the documents. And if we have to wait for review then it slows down legislation.
Does not require review. only asking for financial information to be included at CIP office.
