A Montana State Senator and a Bigfork businessman are asking a federal judge to issue a temporary restraining order to block the federal government from transferring ownership of the Kerr Dam to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.
Everything is all set for control of the dam to be assumed by the tribe Saturday. But in the suit filed in D.C., Senator Verdall Jackson and Bob Keenan argue the government has not analyzed the impact on farms, ranches and businesses, as well as security of the dam.
We’re expecting to receive a statement from the tribe and will have more later.
