FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly is expected to address the tribe's economic future on Monday as the Navajo Nation Council begins its fall session.
The Daily Times reports that Shelly will make his state of the nation address as the council opens its session in Window Rock, Ariz.
Shelly spokesman Erny Zah also is expected to address a proposed energy policy that landed on the fall session's agenda after the council ended a special session last week without a vote.
Zah says Shelly's office is aware of concerns raised by delegates concerning the proposed energy policy during the special session.
The spokesman Shelly may address those concerns during this speech as he continues to push for approval.
