  • Delegation introduces water settlement legislation

    Albuquerque, New Mexico (AP)

    Legislation that would authorize settlements for two decades-long American Indian water rights cases in northern New Mexico was introduced Thursday by members of the state’s congressional delegation.

    The legislation – the Aamodt and Taos Pueblo Indian Water Rights Settlement Act of 2008 – is based on years of negotiations between Indian leaders and local, state and federal officials. It would assure water resources for a handful of pueblos while providing for the water needs of non-Indian interests in north-central New Mexico.
