   TITLE I--SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY IRRIGATION WORKS

SEC. 101. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds and declares that--
            (1) it is the policy of the United States, in fulfillment of 
        its trust responsibility to Indian tribes, to promote Indian 
        self-determination and economic self-sufficiency;
            (2) the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community 
        (hereinafter referred to as the ``Community'') has operated the 
        irrigation works within the Community's reservation since 
        November 1997 and is capable of fully managing the operation of 
        these irrigation works;
            (3) considering that the irrigation works, which are 
        comprised primarily of canals, ditches, irrigation wells, 
        storage reservoirs, and sump ponds located exclusively on lands 
        held in trust for the Community and allottees, have been 
        operated generally the same for over 100 years, the irrigation 
        works will continue to be used for the distribution and delivery 
        of water;
            (4) considering that the operational management of the 
        irrigation works has been carried out by the Community as 
        indicated in paragraph (2), the conveyance of ownership of such 
        works to the Community is viewed as an administrative action;
            (5) the Community's laws and regulations are in compliance 
        with section 102(b); and
            (6) in light of the foregoing and in order to--
                    (A) promote Indian self-determination, economic 
                self-sufficiency, and self-governance;
                    (B) enable the Community in its development of a 
                diverse, efficient reservation economy; and
                    (C) enable the Community to better serve the water 
                needs of the water users within the Community,
        it is appropriate in this instance that the United States convey 
        to the Community the ownership of the irrigation works.

[[Page 114 STAT. 2871]]

SEC. 102. CONVEYANCE AND OPERATION OF IRRIGATION WORKS.

    (a) Conveyance.--The Secretary of the Interior, as soon as is 
practicable after the date of the enactment of this Act, and in 
accordance with the provisions of this title and all other applicable 
law, shall convey to the Community any or all rights and interests of 
the United States in and to the irrigation works on the Community's 
reservation which were formerly operated by the Bureau of Indian 
Affairs. Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 1 and 3 of the Act 
of April 4, 1910 (25 U.S.C. 385) and sections 1, 2, and 3 of the Act of 
August 7, 1946 (25 U.S.C. 385a, 385b, and 385c) and any implementing 
regulations, during the period between the date of the enactment of this 
Act and the conveyance of the irrigation works by the United States to 
the Community, the Community shall operate the irrigation works under 
the provisions set forth in this title and in accordance with the Indian 
Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (25 U.S.C. 450 et seq.), 
including retaining and expending operations and maintenance collections 
for irrigation works purposes. Effective upon the date of conveyance of 
the irrigation works, the Community shall have the full ownership of and 
operating authority over the irrigation works in accordance with the 
provisions of this title.
    (b) Fulfillment of Federal Trust Responsibilities.--To assure 
compliance with the Federal trust responsibilities of the United States 
to Indian tribes, individual Indians and Indians with trust allotments, 
including such trust responsibilities contained in Salt River Pima-
Maricopa Indian Community Water Rights Settlement Act of 1988 (Public 
Law 100-512), the Community shall operate the irrigation works 
consistent with this title and under uniform laws and regulations 
adopted by the Community for the management, regulation, and control of 
water resources on the reservation so as to assure fairness in the 
delivery of water to water users. <<NOTE: Publication.>> Such Community 
laws and regulations include currently and shall continue to include 
provisions to maintain the following requirements and standards which 
shall be published and made available to the Secretary and the Community 
at large:
            (1) Process.--A process by which members of the Community, 
        including Indian allottees, shall be provided a system of 
        distribution, allocation, control, pricing and regulation of 
        water that will provide a just and equitable distribution of 
        water so as to achieve the maximum beneficial use and 
        conservation of water in recognition of the demand on the water 
        resource, the changing uses of land and water and the varying 
        annual quantity of available Community water.
            (2) Due process.--A due process system for the consideration 
        and determination of any request by an Indian or Indian allottee 
        for distribution of water for use on his or her land, including 
        a process for appeal and adjudication of denied or disputed 
        distributions and for resolution of contested administrative 
        decisions.

    (c) Subsequent Modification of Laws and Regulations.--
If <<NOTE: Publication.>> the provisions of the Community's laws and 
regulations implementing subsection (b) only are to be modified 
subsequent to the date of the enactment of this Act by the Community, 
such proposed modifications shall be published and made available to the 
Secretary at least 120 days prior to their effective date and any 
modification that could significantly adversely affect the rights of 
allottees shall

[[Page 114 STAT. 2872]]

only become effective upon the concurrence of both the Community and the 
Secretary.

    (d) Limitations <<NOTE: Effective date.>> of Liability.--Effective 
upon the date of the enactment of this Act, the United States shall not 
be liable for damages of any kind arising out of any act, omission, or 
occurrence based on the Community's ownership or operation of the 
irrigation works, except for damages caused by acts of negligence 
committed by the United States prior to the date of the enactment of 
this Act. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to increase the
