Obama signs bill to expedite tribal development
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday signed a bill designed to expedite home building and energy development on tribal lands.
The law, sponsored by Rep. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., enables tribes to approve trust land leases directly, rather than waiting for approval from the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The Navajo Nation already has that authority.
