Table for 60 days or until have Work session on Legislation 0161-14 or until get information.
LEGISLATION 0161-14 is proposed amendments to the sentencing provisions of the tribal criminal code.
Delegate Leonard Tsosie realizes that Tabled legislation by Naabik’iyati Committee continues to move to Council. “This is where No means Yes. The attorneys are misinterpreting laws and advised that No means Yes. And we put Council in trouble and we end up fighting. But because 0161-14 is not ready, it has to stay where at Naabi.
