Navajo president vetoes bill to move forward with new planes


Flagstaff, Ariz. • Navajo President Russell Begaye vetoed legislation Monday to negotiate a $20 million loan package for new aircraft, saying the details of a possible purchase were scarce.

Begaye said concerns his office raised months ago, including justification for the loan and the funding source to repay it, never were addressed.

"This administration is not going to support efforts blindfolded," Begaye wrote in a veto message to Navajo Nation Council Speaker LoRenzo Bates.
