ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Congress has passed a massive public lands bill that includes landmark legislation settling a decades-long dispute over Navajo tribal water claims.
The legislation settles the Navajos’ water rights claims in the San Juan River Basin and authorizes a pipeline to serve Gallup and Navajo communities in New Mexico and eastern Arizona.
The measure was included in the public lands bill passed by the House on a 285-140 vote.
