On Monday, Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland led the White House Council on Native American Affairs' engagement session with tribal leaders on how they want to use the $13 billion tribal set-aside in President Biden's Infrastructure Bill.

Also in attendance at Monday's remote conference were various government officials representing the different sectors impacted by the infrastructure bill, including the Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg.

Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez on Monday stressed the need to streamline-and thus speed up-the approval process for environmental assessments and securing rights of ways for infrastructure development.
