GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - The federal government has awarded a nearly $20 million construction contract to a Wyoming company to build the first pumping plant for the Navajo-Gallup pipeline project.

SANTA FE—On Feb.19, 2014, the N.M. Senate disapproved HJR 15, the 2014 Navajo Nation Gaming Compact, by a vote of 10-31.

Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly expressed disappointment after the vote and said the extensive lobbying effort by the pueblos was evident in the final tally.

The stakes could not have been any higher, he said, as compact affects more than 950 current gaming positions and a vital revenue stream for the Nation.
