Navajo lawmakers seek to reverse wind project veto

Three Navajos lawmakers are seeking to override a presidential veto of a wind energy project in Cameron.

The Tribal Council is meeting in a special session Tuesday in Window Rock to consider the override. The measure requires 59 votes, or two-thirds of the 88-member council, to pass.

Tribal President Joe Shirley Jr. says the project won’t give the tribe a controlling interest and lacked required reviews.

But he says he was most troubled by a statement made on the council floor by a lawmaker, who said he was offered a bribe to support the project.

Raymond Maxx, a co-sponsor of the override measure, says the project is important to move the tribe toward an economy that focuses on renewable energy.
