H.R. 428 requires the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to survey the gradient boundary along the Red River in Oklahoma and Texas.  Specifically, the bill:

  • Requires the Secretary of the Interior to commission a survey of the entire 116-mile segment of contested land along the Red River to identify the gradient boundary line;
  • Specifies the surveyors must be qualified and licensed professionals chosen jointly by the Texas General Land Office and the Oklahoma Commissioners of Land Office, in consultation with federally recognized Indian tribes, to conduct the gradient boundary survey;
  • Requires the survey be completed within two years after the enactment of the Act;
  • Requires the Secretary to submit the completed survey to the respective state land offices for approval, which are charged with approving the survey and surveys of specific parcels of land individually and notifying the Secretary of their approval;
  • Requires the Secretary, within thirty days after receiving such notification, to notify adjacent landowners of the approval of the survey;
  • Does not modify the Red River Boundary Compact, specifies that the interests of states and sovereignty of federally-recognized Indian tribes north of the South Bank boundary line will not be affected, does not modify land patented under the 1928 Color of Title Act, does not create or reinstate any Indian reservation or portion of reservation, and does not alter the right of the Kiowa Comanche, or Apache Indian tribes to the mineral interest trust fund established by statute in 1926;
  • Authorizes $1 million to carry out the survey.
