Navajo Nation opposes bill that reduces share of trust revenues

 


The Navajo Nation is taking a stand against a controversial bill that a fellow tribe has slammed as a "modern day Indian land grab."

The Navajo Nation Council last week approved Legislation No. 0364-16. The measure affirms the tribe's opposition to H.R.5780, the Utah Public Lands Initiative Act.

Buried within the 215-page package is a provision that affects the Utah Navajo Trust Fund. In a mere three lines, H.R.5780 doubles the percentage of royalties that flow to Utah even though the federal courts have repeatedly chastised the state for failing to properly manage the trust fund.
