Jon Kyl that would have settled Hopi claims to the Little Colorado River in exchange for water development projects.</p><p>Former Chairman Ivan Sidney declared that Kyl&rsquo;s bill is now dead, because without all parties agreeing to the water settlement, Kyl has said he won&rsquo;t move it forward in Congress.</p> Sat, 16 Jun 2012 04:35:00 +0000 Shelley Smithson 15541 at http://knau.org Hopi Tribal Council Rejects Kyl's Water Settlement Bill
