S. 140: A bill to amend the White Mountain Apache Tribe Water Rights Quantification Act of 2010 to clarify the use of amounts in the WMAT Settlement Fund.

This was a vote to pass S. 140 in the House.

The Rules Committee Print includes the text of S. 140, to amend the White Mountain Apache Tribe Water Rights Quantification Act of 2010 to clarify the use of amounts in the WMAT Settlement Fund, S. 249, a bill to provide that the pueblo of Santa Clara may lease for 99 years certain restricted land, and H.R. 986, the Tribal Sovereignty Act of 2017.

Section 1 amends the White Mountain Apache Tribe (WMAT) Water Rights Quantification Act of 2010 to clarify that funds in the WMAT Settlement Fund are authorized to plan, design, and construct a rural water system.

Section 2 provides that the pueblo of Santa Clara may lease their restricted fee lands, similar to the authority they have to lease their trust lands, for up to 99 years, subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Interior. In general, under current law, the tribes can lease tribal lands to schools, businesses, and public entities for up to 25 years.

Section 3 would add tribes to the list of entities that are excluded from the definition of “employer” for purposes of the National Labor Relations Act.
