FARMINGTON — Lawmakers will consider enacting the Navajo Adult Guardianship Act of 2014 during a Friday special session of the Navajo Nation Council in Window Rock, Ariz.
The act focuses on protecting the rights of people with disabilities and it was written in accordance with Diné Fundamental Law.
It also amends the section of tribal law focusing on the guardianship of minors.
Another bill on the proposed agenda would approve $5 million in supplemental funding from the Unreserved Undesignated Fund Balance for the 110 chapters to pay for programs and services such as the public employment project, housing, summer youth employment programs, scholarships and emergencies.
The legislation stipulates that chapter officials and personnel not use the funding for travel, training or stipends.
Delegates could also vote to accept the audit report issued by KPMG LLP of the tribal operating budgets for 2013.
The special session will stream live online at www.ustream.tv/channel/navajo-nation-council.
