Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye has signed into law the tribe’s largest-ever spending package. It’ll use part of a settlement from a federal lawsuit to fund more than 100 water and sanitation projects. Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports.

 More than 100 opponents of snowmaking on the San Francisco Peaks marched to the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco Monday.

That’s where attorneys for the Save the Peaks Coalition were appealing a lower court decision that allowed the U.S. Forest Service to grant a snowmaking permit for Arizona Snowbowl.

The coalition is made up of Native American tribes and environmental groups. The Peaks are sacred to 13 tribes.
