U.S. House Settles Red River Land Dispute

 

Congress-Defense-Spen_NH-1

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a bill aimed at resolving a land dispute along the Red River in Texas and Oklahoma. Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry of Texas sponsored the bill in response to complaints from property owners that the Federal Bureau of Land Management was seeking control of a 116-mile stretch of river separating the two states. The agency says the river has eroded and shifted as much as 2 miles over the past century, and dry land where water once flowed belongs to the government.
