Reid reintroduces Moapa Paiute reservation expansion bill


WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Harry Reid introduced legislation this week to grant nearly 26,000 acres of federal land to the Moapa Band of Paiutes outside Las Vegas.

The bill is similar to one the Nevada Democrat introduced a year ago in the 113th Congress that was advanced by the Senate Indian Affairs Committee but was not considered further.

About 200 members of the Moapa tribe live on its 75,000-acre reservation 30 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
