It is now 11:48 am,4.19.22, and Navajo Council Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton has made motion for CONSENT AGENDA. She says No Opposition on the following Legislation which is why she wants to have the following Legislation – 0045-22, 0048-22; 0011-22; 0025-22; 0032-22 – placed on CONSENT AGENDA.
Delegate Vince James Seconds.
Speaker Damon said there are legislation proposed for CONSSENT AGENDA that required 2/3 vote of Council and other only need Simple Majority.

It is now 11:48 am,4.19.22, and Navajo Council Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton has made motion for CONSENT AGENDA for the Following Legislation, which she says the Naabik’iyati Committee unanimously approved.

N. 0037-22 Appointment of Ms. Rachel Brown to the Commission on Navajo Government Development, as the Health, Education and Human Services Committee Representative

It is now 12:16 pm, 4.19.22, and Navajo Council Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton arguing that according to Navajo Council Rules, she has the right as a Delegate to Motion for a CONSENT AGENDA on legislation that is Likely to Receive Unanimous Approval by Council, which is based on how the Naabik’iyati Committee voted.
Charles-Newton also says that Speaker Damon shud not have recognized Delegate Kee Allen Begay’s motion to Remove all Legislation from her CONSENT AGENDA.
She adds that Delegates opposing CONSENT AGENDA is because of Public Pressure. And she says the Council Rules also says that there is No Debate on CONSENT AGENDA but Damon recognized Delegate Kee Allen Begay’s Point of Order & then Begay, without a Motion, asked for All Legislation to be Removed from CONSENT AGENDA. AND so she says Damon recognized Debate on her CONSENT AGENDA Motion and Recognized Begay’s Motion to Remove remaining legislation on her CONSENT AGENDA when he made a Point of Order, not Motion.
COUNCIL ATTORNEY BOBROOF refers to other Council Rules specifically for Council agenda…

It is now 12:20 pm, 4.19.22, and Speaker Damon refers to Council rules regarding CONSENT AGENDA and asks for legal advice from the Council’s Chief Legislative Counsel Dana Bobroff. Damon says 163.B rules for removing items from CONSENT AGENDA by any Delegate Without Debate.
SPEAKER DAMON
You initially identified E, F, J, L, M for Consent agenda and then I, K, N added. It’s up to you, as motioning party, to keep on Consent Agenda. Correct action says you can put Consent Agenda together and No Delegate can Remove any of your Legislation on CONSENT AGENDA. (THIS IS DANGEROUS. GET RIDE OF CONSENT AGENDAS!!!!)
BOBROOF says she agrees with Damon’s interpretation. If the Debate on CONSENT AGENDA is more then Five Minutes, then CONSENT AGENDA goes away. She says Five Minutes starts after CONSENT AGENDA created.
(OBVIOUSLY COUNCIL IS CONFUSED ABOUT THE RULES/LAW THEY MAKE FOR THEMSELVES….)

It is now 12:20 pm, 4.19.22, and Speaker Damon refers to Council rules regarding CONSENT AGENDA and asks for legal advice from the Council’s Chief Legislative Counsel Dana Bobroff. Damon says 163.B rules for removing items from CONSENT AGENDA by any Delegate Without Debate.
SPEAKER DAMON

DELEGATE KEE ALLEN BEGAY raises Point of Order and Council Rule that Point of Orders cannot be Debated. And so why did Damon allow Charles-Newton so much time to Debate his Point of Order..

It is now 12:41 pm, 4.19.22, and Council Delegate Rickie Nez urging Council to vote green or red on CONSENT AGENDA. We are spending a lot of time on this but leaning how to use and not use these rules.

It is now 12:43 pm, 4.19.22, and Delegate Kee Allen Begay reminds Council of their Debate to debate each of their legislation. Let’s vote on each legislation to show our vote.

It is now 12:48 pm,4.19.22, and now Navajo Council attorney Dana Bobroof says that because some Council Delegates questioned Legislation on CONSENT AGENDA, the legislation was Removed and there is nothing on CONSENT AGENDA, and so Delegates could start Adding Legislation to the CONSENT AGENDA.
(NOTE – LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL)

It is now 1 pm, 4.19.22
SMH…Navajo Council has been making Rules/Laws for themselves that Oppose Debate at Council Level on Legislation that is Unanimously Approved by Naabik’iyati…which means that Navajo Council MUST issue PRESS RELEASES regarding the DEBATE & VOTES on Legislation at the Naabik’iyati Committee, which NEVER HAPPENS. But Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton says that CONSSENT AGENDAS shows the Council is EFFICIENT.
Charles Newton motion for CONSENT AGENDA was made at 11:48 pm, 4.19.22. It is now 1 pm….Very Efficient Waste of Time. LOL
And according to Council’s attorney, Dana Bobroof, even though all Legislation was REMOVED from Charles-Nwton’s CONSENT AGENDA, the CONSSENT AGENDA still LIVES & so Delegates Can Start All Over AGAIN & Add Legislation to CONSENT AGENDA.

It is now 1:18 pm, 4.19.22 and SPEAKER DAMON says he went to the bathroom and didn’t hear what Council Delegate Kee Allen Begay said.
Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton says that Begay accused Council of “hiding” info from public with Consent Agenda. Begay says he wants to know what he said that was a slam against Council when Charles-Newton accuses the Council of not reading their Council Rules.
OMG, COUNCL DELEGATES are Shouting.
SPEAKER DAMON says he will have legislative staff REPLAY what I missed when I was using the bathroom for 45 SECONDS.
DAMON RECESSES COUNCIL FOR 20 MINUTES BEGAINING AT1:22 PM AND ENDING AT 2 PM.

It is now 1:48 pm, 4.19.22, and the Wind is Having a Great Time, and also Making Wifi weak…and so I may not be able to continue Reporting on Navajo Council Spring Session Day 2.
May Peace Prevail on Mother Earth!

It is now 2:08 pm, 4.19.22, and SPEAKER SETH DAMON says the Council needs to revisit their CONSENT AGENDA rules. We were Debating Council Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton’s Consent Agenda when took 20 minute recess.
DELEGATE KEE ALLEN BEGAY says one legislation on Consent Agenda is his legislation for a Nursing Home for Veterans, which he sponsored & supports. But if he supports Consent Agenda, he goes against his support for full debate on each legislation on Council.

it is now 2:16 pm, 4.19.22, and DELEGATE EUGENIA CHARLES-NEWTON says that 0209-21 was approved by Naabi with a Vote of 20 in favor, zero opposed, but Delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty informed her that she prefers to have her legislation 0209-21 removed from CONSENT AGENDA & debated.
0209-21 seeks Council approval to Allocate $68,025,000 in Síhasin Funds for the Navajo Nation Department of Water Resources to Complete Twelve (12) Water Connection Projects Across the Navajo Nation; and Approving the “2021 Water Connection Projects Expenditure Plan” Pursuant to 12 N.N.C §§ 2501-2508 (2/3)

Stewart, Jr.
Navajo Forestry Dept reports on Public Information Meetings, BUT Fails to share How Many People attended Each of the Information Meetings. Forestry Dept Director Becenti says they Shared an Update Report on Info Meetings with Council. (NOTE – Why wasn’t the Report shared with we, the Dine’?)
This legislation also includes a Proposed Agreement between Bluesource, LLC but according to Bluesource official, they have been working with nez&lizer administration for 4 years.
Delegate Charles-Newton asks for the Amount of Money that the Navajo Nation will be paying Bluesource. She also notes that there is No Guarantee that the Navajo Nation will generate Revenue from the Carbon Offset Credits and marketing/selling credits. She notes that 0208-21 is also asking for the Navajo Nation to Waive its Sovereign Immunity.
Delegate Daniel Tso asks that the Navajo Dept of Justice explain the Waiver instead of Bluesource, the Nation’s contractor. Speaker Damon says that was up to Delegate Rickie Nez to ask for Navajo Dept of Justice.
Nez says appropriate for tribal justice dept to respond.

It is now 3 pm, 4.19.22, and Navajo Dept of Justice explains that the limited waiver of Navajo sovereign immunity is to agree to California’s jurisdiction to participate in California Cap & Trade program and enforcement, which Bluesource explained correctly.
Resources & Development Committee Chairman Rickie Nez says there is no Expenditure Plan or Expenditure Policies for How & on What the Revenues from Carbon Offsets will be spent, until the Navajo Nation begins receiving revenues.
Total revenues will be shared and less than 3% of revenues generated will go to Blueshurce and rest to Navajo Nation. Expenses of $3.7 million will be covered by Bluesource and whatever Bluesource will be reimbursed when revenues are generated.
Delegate Kee Allen Begay says that there shud be a Fund Management Plan., especially since more than $200 million is expected to be generated. The estimated $200 million needs to Return to the Communities where the Revenues were generated.
Council Delegate Vince James says that the proposed area for the Cap & Trade Agreement is a very Sacred site. He also asks for Chapter and Dine’ Medicinemen’s Association Resolutions of support or opposition for Carbon Development & Marketing by Navajo Forestry Dept & Bluesource.
James calls for Tabling 208-21 until there is an Expenditure Plan, Chapter Resolutions, a Dine’ Medicineman’s Association resolution.
RESOURCES & DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN RICKIE NEZ says the Council shut down Navajo Generating Station and Kayenta Mine. (NOTE – NEZ IS A LIAR, LIAR) Nez also says, “We have had presentation for three years at different places.”

It is now 3:20 pm, 4.19.22, and Council Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton asks for the specific California Law regarding the Navajo Nation’s limited waiver of sovereign immunity, especially since the Navajo Nation will be putting themselves under the jurisdiction of California.
Bluesource says the Limited Waiver of Sovereign Immunity was Accepted by 20 other tribal organizations and its narrow and allows California to enforce the Rules.
The Council votes 5 in favor, 17 opposed on TABLING 0208-21.

It is now 3:30 pm, 4.19.22, and Council Delegate Daniel Tso asks if this Cap & Trade concept is in Navajo Forest Plan. And there are four other generating stations – including San Juan & Four Corners – that surround Navajo. Will this Carbon Offset work with San Juan & Four Corners generating stations, which put huge giant carbon footprint in our area.
This is a False economy because you are putting Value on current Ecological System. We all know living plants exchange carbon dioxide and release oxygen so how putting value on that.
Article 9, page 6, talks about a section 14-4, discretionary termination for insufficient ARDC. That appears to be very Vague and ask justice dept explain.

It is now 3:40 pm, 4.19.22, and How Many People Attended Resources & Development Committee Chairman Rickie Nez’s public information meeting on his legislation 0208-21?

It is now 4 pm, 4.19.22, and Council Delegate Eugenia Charles-Newton says there was no comparison of Navajo law and California law.

It is 4:08 pm, 4.19.22 and Resources & Development Committee member Mark Freeland is RIDICUOUS.
Freeland says he’s overwhelmed with info that the Navajo Naton’s forest is an Oxygen Wall to clean California’s pollutants. We are basically cleaning up California. I support 0208-21. I appreciate RDC chairman bring up finances. What is the financial future of Navajo, especially with loss of $40 million from closure of NGS and Peabody Kayenta Mine?
RIDICULOUS. I say that because it’s the RDC that has Weeks of Meetings and not Days. And many of their Meetings, Leadership Meetings, Work Session are at the Navajo govt’s Twin Arrows Casino & Resort. WALK YOUR TAKL, RDC member Mark Freeland by PUBLICLY SHARING how much of the Dine’ People’s Money was used by RDC on Meetings, Travel, Meals, Lodging. And please provide details, such as meeting location, or just ATTACH the RDC AGENDA with Committee member votes.
AND Guess Watz Coming Up on the Council Agenda? Remember when the Resources & Development Committee and the Budget & Finance Committee Traveled to COLORADO for Two Days and held meetings at the Navajo govt’s TWO RANCHES and recommended millions of dollars for drought relief for those TWO RANCHES?
Navajo Council Agenda Item (H) LEGISLATION 0252-21: Allocating $1,962,149 or about $ 2 MILLION from the Unreserved, Undesignated Fund Balance to the Navajo Nation Division of Natural Resources for Drought Mitigation for the Navajo Nation’s COLORADO Ranches

CO-SPONSOR: Resources & Development Committee member Mark A. Freeland

NAVAJ COUNCIL DELEGATE EUGENIA CHARLES-NEWTON says she asked for a list of specific California laws that the Navajo Nation Council could be subjecting the Navajo Nation to. Navajo Justice Dept saying its California Law Title 17. But which ones? The entire Title 17? And the tribal justice dept shud have already provided that information instead of providing general information.
Navajo Justice Dept female attorney reminds Speaker Damon that she had emailed that information to him and Resources & Development Committee Chairman Rickie Nez. (NOTE – LOL LOL LOL LOL)

It is now 4:40 pm, 4.14.22 and Council Delegate Daniel Tso calls for a QUESTION of PRIVELEGE and Tso’s question is Why doesn’t the Legislation say that Bluesource is the one and not the Navajo Nation that is selling Carbon Offset credits.
LEGISLATIVE ATTORNEY Mariana Kahn says that 0208-21 was drafted the way it is, is because the Navajo Nation is working with Bluesource. And its thru California law that allows tribes to take advantage of this, she adds.
COUNCIL DELEGATE DANIEL TSO asks if Bluesource is managing the Navajo Nation’s assets.
NAVAJO JUSTICE DEPT says agreement incorporates California law to fit this project for inventory, marketing & selling by Bluesource.

It is now 5 pm, 4.19.22, and the Navajo Council is Voting on Cease Debate on Legislation 0208-21, which seeks Council approval of an agreement between the Navajo Nation & Bluesource regarding the Navajo Nation’s Carbon Offsee Program, which waives limited Navajo Nation sovereign immunity to place Navajo Nation under jurisdiction of California for its Carbon Offsets Program, and allows Bluesource to manage the Navajo Naton’s revenues generated from Carbon Offset Program.
The following is a memo regarding those REVENUES. The memo is attached to 0208-21.
