Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments In accordance with E.O. 13175, we have found that these final supplementary rules do not include policies that have tribal implications. Since the supplementary rules do not change BLM policy and do not involve Indian reservation lands or resources, we have determined that the government-to-government relationships would remain unaffected. The supplementary rules only prohibit the use of alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs on public lands.
