0081-20 SPONSOR CHARLES NEWTON & HENIO
Emergency supplemental $2.4M to DPS
SETH
I’m trying to get info on this bill cuz no budget forms.
CHARLES NEWTON
Asking for $2M. Working with DPS and met with DPS this week. Discussed issues facing. Hope Delmar on phone to give info on what DPS facing.
Tell nnc shortfall facing.
DELMAR
Struggling with employees. Hazard pay who at front lines. As result we were able … virus difficult. Hazard pay resuted with HR director to compensate employees at front lines. Really hurting funds and met with LOC and figure resulted from virus and need PPEs.
We hae been searching for help. As struggling for PPEs, we were exposed, 36 employees tested positive. Two aemployees hospital and really struggling.
Dk how much $2.4M help us. Big unknown is how long last. Daily we are in need of these funds.
Charles newton
DPS is not only having assisting with pandemic, but also crime. Lite to report crime decrese but not true. Crime continues to exist on NN. There is a push on two fronts – pandemic and crime.

SPEAKER DAMON make sure everyone on mute
Daniels, halona, kee, oto tso

DELEGATE HALONA – DT
Delmar’s request falls under CARES funding so make amendment for funds to come from CARES and refer back.

SPEAKER SETH DAMON
Where refer to? Clarify


DELEGATE HALONA
Funds come from CARES

SPEAKER SETH DAMON
0081-20 says take from UUFB for emergency times and would change intent. Secondly there is no CARES yet or area where draw down. Ask Bobroof if do anotyer bill.

CHIEF LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL DANA BOBROOF
I agree with speaker. Bill set up as emergency from UUFB and see 80 percent of provisions deal with UUFB. Choice of NNC and speaker if changes intent. But very concerned over no analysis of whether funds can be reimbursed from CARES. Analysis needs to be done.
If u want dollars from CARES then do new bill and solves your issue.

DELEGATE CHARLES NEWTON
OFFICERS need money like yesterday. DPS has come before NNC. How long get funded and expenditure plan. There is another bill in hopper. If TABLE then asking officers to wait.
If agree get reimbursement? Ask Delmar how he feels about TABLING
NAVAJO PUBLIC SAFETY DIVISION DIRECTOR JESSIE DELMAR
All of us know we are really really hurting with equipment and further go, suffering second week of March. As you can see, two months later, same predictamet. Seem pandemic wide spread especially on rez.
Folks police, EMS, investigaors, corrections, like Daniels said we are really really trying to be positive. We want to pay properly and appropriately. We are 2 months behind and we really need some help.

DELEGATE HALONA
If PPe critical then find and if hazard pay then retro active. Still think eliminate UUFB.

DELEGATE Numbers rising. We are givn to speak from afar but police deal with one on one.
We talk about lot of things but how more lives save if assist police, EMS, investigators. Our first responders shud have PPEs and whatever they need. This is embaressing for First Responders to be asking for help.

OTTO TSO I talked to officer in Tuba city and officer said shortage of PPEs. Where are PPEs for law enforcement. We appropriated $4M for Navajo Health Command Operations Center and Navajo Health Department. Where did Nez & Lizer spend those funds? None of the $4M went to our police officers!

DANA BOBROOF Asked for Navajo Justice Dept help and justice dept say that assuming all funds used March 1 and Dec. 30 and use UFFB now and reimburse with CARES funds after expenditure plan in place for CARES funds. No amendment regarding CARES funds.

DANIEL TSO Within the Public Safety Division, cud they do budget transfer not needing NNC action. Main thing is even if pass bill, Prez Nez cud line item veto.

let legislative intent reflect that when this matter dealth with then the $2.4M from UUFB will be reimbursed from CARES funds.

PERNELL HALONA I withdraw my amendment to have $2.4M come from CARES funds. PPEs are important and I feel that Navajo command center has enough PPEs. Did the supervisors ask for PPEs? That’s what supervisors do. Did Public Safety Division Director Jessie Delmar request PPEs from command center? When my area didn’t have PPEs, I requeted from command center and then bought my own.

DELEGATE DANIEL TSO In this case, NNC has act. Let us vote Green (Yes) on the $2.4M.

DELEGATE RAYMOND SMITH I support bill to assist first responders but CARES Act basis of any emergency and advised not to add language regarding CARES but make amendment that CARES reimburse $2.4M to UUFB.

SPEAKER DAMON the legal advice was to not put that language in as amendment.

DELEGATES SMITH and RICKIE NEZ Asking to add language cuz Navajo Nation will be audited for how spend CARES funds.

DELEGATE CARL SLATER Has bill been amended to include budget forms? Speaker Damon, No. any update on $4M? Speaker: We have asked for updates. HEHS and BFC asked and dk if got response from command center. SLATER think need additional language regarding use of funds and where funds being used. To date, only small portion of $4M used.

CHIEF LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL BOBROOF as i recommended after consulttion with Navajo Department of Justice that $2.4M can be reimbursed. Not recommended to include that language but working on amendment. Thank Delegate Daniel Tso for request to include legislative history regarding this bill.

DELEGATE amendment would be for $2.4M to be in 30 days.

MOTION by Edmund Yazzie – Mark Freeland. SPONSOR CROTTY tried to talk with comand center issuing burial guidelines. I am probably Delegate that does not want to deal with Burial but virus creating. Family lost brother fist essential worker, father fell ill and didn’t make it. they were raising funds to pay Navajo Nation for land withdrawal. Asked Land Dept for process to expedite for family plots. I was asked write memo regarding burial and now families paying to bury off rez. Navajo only gives certain amount for burial assistance. This to help families bury loved ones in family plots.

DELEGATE RICKIE NEZ I really have concern. Laws in place. COVID created uneasiness and if laws being passed for land withdrawals, how impact permitees. Ask for Navajo Land Department director Halona to be here to answer questions.

DELEGATE HERMAN DANIELS family in monument valley and across Navajo Nation are grieving. As former Navajo Nation grazing official I have dealth with this. What are Grazing Officers saying?

DELEGATE WILSON STEWART we still have to bury. i have constituents who have family plots. when Fort Defiance Chapter with Fort Defiance hospital and withdrew additional land for cemetary. When loved ones make family plots and not fenced in and put near other grazing areas. Even with shrines along road. One area as RDC, we worked and discussed with land development.

DELEGAE ELMER BEGAY I know there are lot of teachings and protcols in Dine’ Way. COVID-19 changed Navajo way of life and do ceremonies even with rules. Have lost of relatives especially elder women who hold lot of knowledge. Dine’ women hold land and Dine’ men respect that and understand they are to help her with her home. Condolences to those lost loved ones. But we need polices regarding family plots.

DELEGATE AMBER CROTTY asking how to deal with families that have lost multiple family members. i

DELEGATE EUGENE TSO at Chinle I had to relocate a body. In the aftermath of COVID-19, i hope we all care for each other more.

DELEGATE NATHANIEL BROWN very sensitive issue. We have lot of family plots. In 50=-60 years where grandchildren leave? By family burial plots? In Kayenta, we opposed family plots and I oppose this bill. In my chapter, a back hoe worker got exposed as helping family bury relative who died from COVID-19. I support community cemetaries. Someone buried someone where my family herds sheep. Some pple are being reckless. And pple are grabbing land with deaths. Back hoe operators aren’t afraid to help with burial if in community cemetary.

DELEGATE RICKIE NEZ this is very difficult time. when we share info we need to be respectfully. RDC met with all grazing officials regarding illegal burial sites. Grazing official reported that community member came to him and reported illegal burial to hapen. So he had to go and stop and he felt really sad. There are policies for community cemetaries and we need to establish community cemetaries.

DELEGATE VINCE JAMES let this legislation go before RDC/Resources & Development Committee. RDC met with grazing officials who reported illegal burial sites. DELEGATE CARL SLATER SECONDS JAMES MOTION to refer Crotty bill back to RDC for 30 days becuz in pandemic and to work with Crotty especially since this impacts families who have lost loved ones to virus.

SPAKER DAMON will recognize your motion & refer back to RDC. Referals not debatable.

The Council vote is 21 – 0 on AMENDMENT ONE.

DELEGATE AMBER CROTTY have two amendments. One directive to BIA requesting coordinate BIA realty;

DELEGATE EDMUND YAZZIE once legislation is approved the comments are not attached to bill.

DELEGATE HERMAN DANIELS why didn’t this emergency legislation to spend $600M go before Resources & Development Committee. It should have gone before all standing committees.

DELEGATE CROTTY i will make sure public comments are part of record. Talked with BIA on ROWs and as delegate not one who assigns bills to committees. Goal here is to help Navajo pple with COVID-19 and work with anyone who has recommednations.

CHIEF LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL BOBROOF little background, look at authorities which are committees and council. this is a fund management plan so under Budget & Finance & Council so no appropriation so not fall under Resources & Development. Expenditure plan after bill passed will go to oversight committees. Under code, Speaker has absolute discretion for assigning legislation to committees. (Answer to Herman Daniels)

DELEGATE ELMER BEGAY on AMENDMENT TWO. Know executive directors notified about process. but historic preservation and cultural resource should be part of ROW/Rights of Way.

BOBROOF this amendment is directive to Natural Resources and programs in DNR. And question if Amendment Two needs to be in 0030-20.

DELEGATE RICKIE NEZ listening to Daniels and went to Law & Order and Budget & Finance and Naabi. Send before RDC since Amendment Two deals with DNR. And go before RDC out of respect fro committees. (NOTE – President Nez has a similar CARES Act legisalation going through legislative review process.)

DELEGATE DANIEL TSO amendment deals with processes and is needed and gives directive, which needs to be clarified. But we need to move forward with amendment and CARES expenditure plan. After approve this legislation then the actual CARES expenditure plan or where $600M spent will go to standng committees.

HERMAN DANIELS i feel that this shud go before standing committees cuz lot of money, $600M. (OMG! Why is Delegate Daniels and Rickie Nez wanting this legislation which starts use of $600M, to go before more Council committee because that delays getting $600M to the Navajo people. No more Debating by Committees. Let Council act on $600M and get money to people!!)

DELEGATE RICKIE NEZ need to hear from land dept. This is $600M for people. Let’s do it right from beginning.

DELEGATE CHARLES NEWTON a little bit confused. This bill is about Expenditure and comments now should go in Expenditure Plan. To be clear, I know when Law and Order asked for referral, everybody voted against so this notion of respect for committees occurs. Expenditure Plan goes to each committee. People waiting for legislation which allows committees to creates Expenditure Plan.

SPEAKER DAMON this legislation is Act to develop Expenditure Plan and build up Fund to show buondaries of what we can and cannot do. Also inform Divisions and Programs on best practices. Up to Council to decide if go in this document. With needed waivers in developing Expenditure Plan, that can be done with Council committees, federal agency. Sorry if CARES Act bill did not go before all committees. Budget and Finance deals with expenditure plans.

DELEGATE FREELAND had lengthy discussion with BIA on rights of way. Ask what is largest need of people? Comments refer to water projects and infrastructure. DK if people understand this legislation. When will Expenditure Plan be ready? My constituents have no running water and electricity.

CHARLES NEWTON make clear this is Step One. Development of Expenditure Plan is next after this legislation is passed by Council.

DELEGATE HERMAN DANIELS i lost several relatives. Yesterday amendment we approved $160M for Small Businesses.`

DELEGATE FREELAND we all need to help our people and the clock is ticking

VOTE ON AMENDMENT TWO, 11 in favor, 10 opposed. It is now 5 pm

DELEGATE HERMAN DANIELS we need to work together. this Legislation 0030-20 should go before all standing committees.

DELEGATE CHARLES NEWTON are we discussing expenditure plan? SPEAKER, No.

DELEGATE EDMUND YAZZIE our people dealing with virus and we never knew it would be this bad. We should talking with President and Vice President on big major funding. (NEZ & LIZER have not provided a written report on how much donations they received, what types of donations; where and how much donations distributed.) We in our prayers say, Lord no more! I ask you Speaker to write letter to President to sit down and talk and come up with joint expenditure plan.

DELEGATE RICKIE NEZ every bill worth debating. We need to roll up sleeves and develop expenditure plan. this is not time to roll up fists. We are wasting time and energy. We need to focus on COVID-19. (NOTE – Delegate Rickie Nez supported Navajo Transitional Energy, which recently laid off hundreds of wotkers at their Springfield coal mine.) I make MOTION to refer back to Resources & Development and Health, Education & Human Services Committee. Delegate Pernell Halona SECONDS.

COUNCIL VOTING to REFER to RDC and HEHS for 14 days cuz RDC not meeting until Wednesday.

DELEGATE CROTTY this bill signed off by Naabik’iyati Committee and RDC & HEHS are members of Naabi.

DELEGATE VINCE JAMES regarding Edmund Yazzie. Did he make MOTION to TABLE?

SPEAKER DAMON he didn’t make motion.

DELEGATE CARL SLATER when does Delegate Yazzie CARES bill come off five day comment? SPEAKER May 20. And Edmund Yazzie CARES bill goes before Budget & Finance, Naabi, Council.

CHARLES NEWTON logic of holding off on this bill for two weeks when talking that people in need.

DELEGATE KEE BEGAY we are just kicking can down the road. What is timeline if move forward now? SPEAKER Law and Order 5.26.20 and Naabi 5.28.20 and Council 5.29.20 if move along.

DELEGATE PERNELL HALONA dk how put clearer. bill nees move forward with three branches. We need to peform here. We are going two different direction cuz don’t like OPVP.

CHARLES NEWTON, POINT OF ORDER – talks about respect and what Halona saying is not true. By clan, Prez is my dad so not about not liking them.

DELEGATE HALONA good idea to refer to RDC and talk little more. Give time to Delegate Edmund Yazzie.

DELEGATE EDMUND YAZZIE begging to have meeting with President & VP and have one legislation. I will continue my prayers. (NOTE – COUNCIL has asked Prez & VP for Reports on Donations, PPEs; more detailed information on cases, Health Command Operations Center.

i reached out to OPVP. Delegate Edmund Yazzie, ask President and VP to answer my emails. We are going thru process, not against it. We are working together. I had to drop off herbal medicine and two funerals. i know my community and really heartbreaking to see two funerals.

SPEAKER DAMON i met with president and asked him to present plan Monday. that was Sunay. Prez never responded. I will reach out to him. I have great relationship with OPVP staff and Lizer. But to this day, no call or memo.
