DELEGATE LEONARD TSOSIE
Not recall because this before Navajo Nation Supreme Court. Let Supreme Court rule first. What we heard is that LEGISLATION 0352-13 did not go before Navajo Oil and Gas Board properly.

TRIBAL ATTORNEY RON HAVEN
no debate on recall vote

DELEGATE LORENZO CURLEY
I ask Navajo Justice Department not be involved because Justice Department is part of this litigation. Justice Department was asked for advice regarding Navajo Oil and Gas. I don’t understand why there is so much resistence by some delegates…but I know why and I could call them out.
