Chairman Letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 1, 2016 - TO: Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell 

FROM: Rob Bishop, Chairman House Committee on Natural Resources

Dear Ms. Attorney General and Madame Secretary: 

In a February 26, 2015 correspondence (Letter) to Secretary Sally Jewell and former Attorney General Eric Holder, I outlined a number of items that needed to be sent to Congress prior to consideration of any proposed Indian water rights settlement. As I indicated, these types of settlements are generally preferable to prolonged litigation, and when crafted correctly, can also benefit the American taxpayer through the relief of liabilities associated with legal obligations.
