Navajo Nation To Vote On Coal-Related Energy Bills
The Navajo Nation Council is scheduled to vote on two coal-related energy bills on Wednesday. Coal is one of the tribe's most abundant natural resources.
One of the bills would invest money in a company the tribe formed to purchase a coal mine in northwestern New Mexico. The other updates the tribe's energy policy that includes support for cleaner coal technology.
Coal and the power plants it feeds make up a significant portion of the Navajo Nation’s general fund.
