ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Some New Mexico lawmakers are rekindling a dispute over Navajo Nation water use.

Congress awarded water rights from the San Juan River to the Navajo Nation in 2009, and the state gave final approval in 2013.

The settlement has since faced unsuccessful challenges from local water districts.

Now 10 Republican lawmakers from northwestern New Mexico are asking the state Supreme Court to suspend the deal, alleging the state legislature never actually signed off on it.
