Lovejoy: New 4 Corners lease a bad deal
State Senator Lynda Lovejoy letter to Pres. Ben Shelly re. APS lease extension and royalties
The Honorable Speaker, Johnny Naize, states "[N]umerous hours of negotiation were spent to create a fair revised agreement for the Navajo People." The lease extension will guarantee a meager annual payment of$7 mi1lion for TWENTY-FIVE (25) years. Before you put your signature to the Council approved APS lease, I urge you to seriously evaluate the impression that this is a "FAIR" agreement for the Navajo People. Are you willing to veto this measure and return it to the Council to ask '"Is this the best you can do? Please bring forward a better deal."
