25 U. S. C., Supp. V, § 389.
|Chap. 78||Deferment of certain irrigation charges, approval.|
Whereas the Act of Congress approved June 22, 1936 (49 Stat. 1803), provides that the Secretary of the Interior may adjust, defer, or cancel irrigation charges against non-Indian-owned lands within Indian irrigation projects, where conditions are found to justify such action, subject to the approval of Congress; and
Whereas an investigation of conditions affecting the Blackfeet Indian irrigation project, Montana, is contemplated within the near future pursuant to the provisions of the said Act; and
Whereas the Secretary of the Interior has deferred certain irrigation charges against lands of the said project which are now delinquent or will become due and payable before the proposed investigation can be completed: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That in accordance with the Act of June 22, 1936 (49 Stat. 1803), the action of the Secretary of the Interior in deferring such charges under said irrigation project is hereby approved.
Approved, April 11, 1940.
