Legislation Description
The purpose of this resolution is to enact the Navajo Nation Surface Coal Mining Program Act, establishing new Navajo Nation Code sections 18 N.N.C. §§1701 et. seq. This enactment will provide for the regulation, inspection and enforcement of surface coal mining and reclamation operations on Navajo Nation lands by the Navajo Minerals Department, specifically the Surface Coal Mining Program. If this legislation is passed, the Navajo Nation will be the first, and possibly the only, American Indian Nation to obtain primacy over surface coal mining and reclamation.
