Directs the Secretary of the Interior, within one year after the enactment of this Act, to offer to enter into a contract with the irrigation district for the Flathead Indian Reservation, Montana, under which the district will operate and manage the Flathead Indian Irrigation Project, including the right to use permanent easements purchased under a prior Act.

Terminates any such contract if a U.S. court finds that the district has operated, and persists in operating, the Project in such a manner as likely to damage tribal trust assets.
