    Moapa Paiute leader says tribe to expand solar on new land


    The leader of the Moapa Band of Paiutes told Congress on Wednesday that adding land to the tribe’s Southern Nevada reservation would allow it to expand further into solar energy while encouraging young people to stay close to home.
    Tribal Chairwoman Aletha Tom said a bill that would put another 26,565 acres in trust would restore a small part of what once was a 2 million-acre reservation that Congress took away almost 140 years ago under pressure from miners and settlers. About 70,000 acres were restored in 1980.
