Today Arizona’s two Republican senators helped their party block the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would have given women new tools to combat pay discrimination in the workforce.
Protesters held up signs and booed as Arizona Senators Jon Kyl and John McCain visited Tuba City Thursday.
The senators were in Tuba City to discuss details of their water settlement bill with Navajo and Hopi officials.
The $300 million bill would cede the tribe’s claims to the Little Colorado River in exchange for three water development projects in reservation communities where many lack running water.
But the bill is unpopular with many, even those who live in communities that would get drinking water.
