Legislative committee to meet on the Navajo Nation

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – The state Legislature’s Indian Affairs Committee will conduct meetings this week on the Navajo Nation to discuss several topics, including plans for a senior citizen center and road conditions affecting school bus safety.

The Daily Times reports that committee members on Wednesday will discuss the Upper Fruitland senior center, which had a groundbreaking ceremony last year. Progress has stalled on the building, and Upper Fruitland officials are expected to address ways to secure additional funding for construction.

On Thursday, committee members will consider a report on the conditions of roads that serve as school bus routes.

Other topics on this week’s agenda include the San Juan Generating Station, the expansion of the Kirtland Youth Association facility and the Navajo Route 57 project.
