President responds to Anderson’s statements to Associated Press

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. – Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley, Jr., today issued a response to an Associated Press news story that reported Navajo Nation Council Delegate Larry Anderson is sponsoring legislation to override his veto of the Dine’ Marriage Act of 2005.

“This veto, like any other, is just part of the normal checks and balances afforded to the President on behalf of the Navajo people,” the President said. “If Mr. Anderson wants to seek an override of this veto, that’s certainly his prerogative and the prerogative of the Council. I looked at the legislation and did what I thought was right. And I have not changed my mind.”
