As required by the No Child Left Behind Act, the Secretary will select representatives of Indian tribes for the committee from among individuals nominated by tribes whose students attend BIE-funded schools either operated by the bureau or by the tribe through a contract or grant. To the maximum extent possible, the proportional representation of tribes on the committee will reflect the proportionate share of students from VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:50 Oct 21, 2008 Jkt 217001 tribes served by the BIE-funded school system. In addition, the Secretary will consider the balance of representation with regard to geographical location, size, and type of school and facility, as well as the interests of parents, teachers, administrators, and school board members, in selecting tribal committee representatives. As required in the NCLB Act, the committee shall prepare and submit to the Secretary of the Interior a report or reports setting out: • A method for creating a catalog of school facilities; • The school replacement and new construction needs of the interested parties, and a formula for the equitable distribution of funds to address those needs; • The major and minor renovation needs of the interested parties, and a formula for the equitable distribution of funds to address such needs; and • Facilities standards for home-living (dormitory) situations.

Composition of the Committee D. Administrative and Technical Support E. Training and Organization F. Interests Identified Through Consultation VI. Request for Nominations VII. Submitting Nominations I. Introduction The purpose of the No Child Left Behind Negotiated Rulemaking Committee is to serve as an advisory committee under the Federal Advisory PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Committee Act (FACA) and the Negotiated Rulemaking Act (NRA) to provide recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior for proposed report(s) under the No Child Left Behind Act (Pub. L. 107–110, codified at 25 U.S.C. 2001 et seq.). The objectives of the committee are to represent the interests that will be significantly affected by the final report or regulations, to negotiate in good faith, and to reach consensus, where possible, on recommendations to the Secretary for the report or proposed regulations. The NCLB directs the Secretary to conduct a negotiated rulemaking pursuant to the NRA. The NRA requires an agency head to give consideration to seven factors when determining whether a negotiate rulemaking is appropriate, specifically, whether: (1) There is a need for a rule; (2) There are a limited number of identifiable interests that will be significantly affected by the rule; (3) There is a reasonable likelihood that a committee can be convened with a balanced representation of persons who— (A) Can adequately represent the interests identified under paragraph (2); and (B) Are willing to negotiate in good faith to reach a consensus on the proposed rule; (4) There is a reasonable likelihood that a committee will reach a consensus on the proposed rule within a fixed period of time; (5) The negotiated rulemaking procedure will not unreasonably delay the notice of proposed rulemaking and the issuance of the final rule; (6) The agency has adequate resources and is willing to commit such resources, including technical assistance, to the committee; and (7) The agency, to the maximum extent possible consistent with the legal obligations of the agency, will use the consensus of the committee with respect to the proposed rule as the basis for the rule proposed by the agency for notice and comment. Upon reviewing the analysis of these seven considerations set out in the convening report, the Secretary, through the authority delegated to George Skibine, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Economic Development—Indian Affairs, has determined that a negotiated rulemaking is appropriate. II. Background In the fall of 2006, the Department sought assistance with this effort from the U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution (U.S. Institute), an E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1
