WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) - Navajo Attorney General Harrison Tsosie is keeping his job.

Tribal lawmakers voted 7-6 Friday against removing Tsosie from office.

He has served as the tribe's top legal official since 2011.

The council voted down legislation at its executive session.

The bill's co-sponsors claimed Tsosie disregarded their suggestions on some of the most critical issues facing the tribe.

Those include water rights, the potential purchase of a coal mine and a lease extension for a coal-fired power plant near Page.

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