Contrary to information on the developers’ website, a bill committing the Navajo Nation to partner on a resort on the rim of the Little Colorado Canyon has not reached the speaker’s office and will not be on the Navajo Nation Council’s summer session agenda, legislative branch spokesman Jared Touchin confirmed Wednesday.

Touchin said that unless a bill is only required to be seen by the Nabik’iyati’ Committee and the Council as a whole, the deadline for summer session was last Tuesday.

"I would assume legislation like this would be required to go through several committees," Touchin said.

A blog post on the website of the Grand Canyon Escalade, as the project is being called, stated, "A final package of legislation was delivered to the Navajo Nation Council Office of Legislative Affairs. From there it has moved on to the Speakers Office, is being assigned a legislation number and is being assigned to committees for review, debate and hopefully approval."

The post was dated June 10.
