    Bill to authorize land swap with Ute Tribe heads to White House


    A bill to authorize a land swap for the Ute Tribe of Utah is headed to President Barack Obama for his signature.
    H.R.356, the Hill Creek Cultural Preservation and Energy Development Act, allows the tribe to protect 20,000 acres of culturally important sites on the reservation. The tribe already owns the surface rights but the mineral rights are owned by the School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration, a state agency.
