Drilling ban on federal land in Chaco Culture National Historical Park

The Navajo Nation Council just passed a resolution to reduce by half the proposed protection zone in a U.S. House-approved bill that mandates a 10-mile drilling ban on federal land in Chaco Culture National Historical Park. The council believes the bill will prevent Navajo landowners from any development on their properties. New Mexico's congressional delegates, however, say the Navajo Nation Council has misconstrued the U.S. House bill. They promise to work with the Navajo Nation to make clear that the bill protects the mineral rights of all Navajo tribe members. Read the full story on this new development in The Santa Fe New Mexican.
