Description

This excerpt from a report from the Committee of Conference dated October 17, 1986, was written to accompany United States (US) House Resolution 6, also known as the “Water Resources Development Act of 1986.” US House Resolution 6 authorizes development, flood control, and water protection measures for several projects across the US. This report suggests amendments to US House Resolution 6. This excerpt highlights a section of the report entitled “Garrison Land Transfer” which stipulates that 136 acres of land be held in trust by the United States for the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation in exchange for lands that the United States will utilize for operation of the Garrison Dam; The Three Affiliated Tribes may use this land for grazing when it is not flooded. US House Resolution 6 became US Public Law 99-662 on November 17, 1986.
