WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. -- The attorney general of the Navajo Nation says he sees no legitimate reason for legislation seeking to remove him from office.

Harrison Tsosie (SO'-see) said Monday that the bill was introduced without consideration of due process, or adherence and respect for Navajo law.

Tribal lawmakers say Tsosie has disregarded their suggestions on issues related to water rights, a lease extension for a power plant and the potential purchase of a coal mine.

Tsosie says he hasn't been given an opportunity to talk to the legislation's co-sponsors about their concerns.

He represents all three branches of the Navajo Nation government as head of the tribe's Department of Justice.

Tsosie acknowledges his legal opinions don't always satisfy everyone, but he says they're consistent with and based on existing law.
