This bill will force the Navajo and Hopi nations to give up all water rights to the Peabody Coal Mining Company and the Salt River Project and other owners of the Navajo Generating Station (NGS) in exchange for no compensation. It also will prevent any litigation by the Navajo and Hopi nations should they incur any future financial losses or physical harm as a result of water loss and / or water contamination.

      What a blatant attempt to prevent the community with the greatest stake in protecting the watershed from having any legal recourse when they inevitably get fucked over. If you have any moral backbone at all, senators, just say no to this abhorent greed and manipulation. We have better ways to supply ourselves with clean, renewable energy that doesn't violate basic right to sovereignty, self-determination, and water rights essential to survival.

      Hasn't the US Government taken enough and broken enough treaties with the First Nations. It is time to apologize for what our ancestors did and stop taking what little they have left.
