HERE AT RESOURCES AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE MEETING WHERE HRI/HYDRO URANIUM RESOURCES IS ASKING RDC TO CONTINUE SUPPORTING THEIR LEGISLATION THAT CREATED RDC SUBCOMMITTEE TO WORK ON PROPOSED AGREEMENT BETWEEN HRI AND NAVAJO NATION FOR DEMONSTRATION PROJECT INVOLVING IN-SITU URANIUM MINING NEAR CHURCH ROCK, NM.
RDC MEMBER DELEGATE GEORGE APACHITO
I’m also sponsoring legislation opposing what the RDC did regarding HRI.
RDC MEMBER/SUBCOMMITTEE CHAIRPERSON LEONARD TSOSIE
i see these activists going to office and they conspire to create dissent and unrest over here. and they think that this is in the best interest of people…from what seen of all documents if lose this case then i’ll say we lost jurisdiction cuz of those delegates. and i blame Eastern Navajo Dine’ Against Uranium for the loss of the federal court case involving URI and Navajo Nation. this issue is here to stay. unfortunately, this area is checkerboarded. and i don’t agree with federal court decision.
i suggest that we move on. i also found out that NEPA and others have not being doing their job – pushing for that health study. I don’t now where they’ve been. only one site they cleaned up and not them but federal government. NEPA has no money and over $1 billion to clean up Church Rock site. and those people are just protesting as the uranium dust flies. they say no uranium mining but there’s no money for uranium cleanup.
i welcome Delegate George Apachito’s legislation to nullify RDC Subcommittee legislation. we didn’t create this problem, it was the former leadership and we are cleaning up their mess.
RDC MEBMER/SUBCOMMITTEE VICE CHAIRPERSON DELEGATE LEOONARD PETE
some of these problems have been here for years cuz put under carpet and so it will return again. i’ve been reading book on economy and it say, where everything is free then see no economy and that is where we are at now. as long as everything free then always be in poverty – gimme, gimme, gimme. and if federal government cuts tribal federal funding then it will be even worse. our foresight is not that long. maybe we only see four years down road. we don’t look 50 years down road. we put laws in place and we don’t think of the ramifications in 50 years.
