                    The purpose of the bill is to clarify the authorized purposes of the
                  WMAT Settlement   Fund  authorized in Title III of the Claims Reso-
                  lution Act, Public Law 111-291 (the Act).
                                           BACKGROUND
                    Title III of the Act resolved the White Mountain Apache Tribe's
                    (the Tribe) water related claims against the United States, the
                    State of Arizona, and certain state parties. In consideration for the
                  Tribe waiving its water related claims against the federal govern-
                  ment  and  state parties, the Act authorized funding for the con-
                  struction of the White Mountain Apache Rural Water System  (the
                  Rural Water System), which will bring desperately needed drink-
                  ing water to the Tribe and its members. Sec. 307(a). The Act also
                  establishes the creation of the WMAT Settlement Fund that can be
                  used, for among other things, water-related economic development
                  projects. Sec. 312(b)(2)(C)(i)(III)
                    In order to complete the Rural Water  System, it may be nec-
                  essary for the Tribe to use the existing authorization provided for
                  in Section 312(b) for water-related economic development projects.
