Final policy; Response to comments on proposed policy. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Labor (DOL) is issuing its final Tribal Consultation Policy. The Tribal Consultation Policy (hereinafter referred to as the ‘‘policy’’) establishes standards for improved consultation with federally-recognized Indian Tribes to the extent that no conflict exists with applicable federal laws or regulations. The policy applies to any Department action that affects federally-recognized Indian tribes and requires that the Department’s government-togovernment consultation involve appropriate Tribal and Departmental Officials. In addition to setting forth the final policy, this document also responds to comments on the proposed policy, which was published in the Federal Register on April 18, 2012 (77 FR 23283). DATES: This Final Policy is effective December 4, 2012 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information on the Department of Labor’s Tribal Consultation Policy, contact Jeremy Bishop, Special Assistant to the Secretary, Office of Public Engagement, U.S. Department of Labor, Room C–2313, 200 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20210.

Email: bishop.jeremy@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Discussion of Comments on the Proposed Draft Tribal Consultation Policy In response to the proposed Tribal Consultation Policy, the Department received comments from a broad spectrum of interested parties, including Indian tribes, Alaska Native Corporations, and tribal advocacy groups that raise a variety of concerns with specific provisions of the proposed policy. After reviewing these comments thoughtfully and systemically, the Department has modified several provisions and retained others as originally proposed. Provisions of the policy that received comments are discussed in detail below; provisions that were not commented on have been adopted as originally proposed. The original comments can also be viewed online in their entirety at: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docket Detail;dct=FR%252BPR%252BN%252 BO%252BSR%252BPS;rpp=25;po=0;D= DOL-2012-0002. A. Section I—Background and Purpose; B. Referenced Authorities A commenter suggested adding the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 108–447) to the list of authorities on which the policy is based. Section 518 of Title V of Division H requires OMB and all federal agencies to consult with Alaska Native corporations on the same basis as Indian tribes under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments. This provision amends the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2004 (Public Law 108–199), which only required that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) participate in such consultations with Alaska Native Corporations. The Department has incorporated this change. B. Section II—Guiding Principles; A. Government-to-Government Relationship and Tribal SelfDetermination One commenter recommended editing this section to specify that while the relationship between the federal government and Alaska Native corporations is different than the government-to-government relationship with federally-recognized tribes, the policy should recognize the Department’s obligations to consult with Alaska Native corporations pursuant to the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (Pub. L. 108–447). PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71833 The Department does not believe it is necessary to make this suggested change. The definition of ‘‘Indian Tribe’’ in section X, which specifically includes Alaska Native Corporations, makes clear that such organizations are entitled to the same treatment under the policy as other federally-recognized tribes. C. Section III—Policy Statement; B. Implementation Responsibilities of DOL Operating Agencies A commenter suggested changing the phrase ‘‘legally permissible’’ to ‘‘not legally prohibited’’ to allow Indian tribes greater discretion in developing their own policies and standards, so long as such actions are not legally prohibited. The commenter believes the revised standard would give further weight to Indian tribes’ selfdetermination, and would be easier to implement and enforce than ‘‘permissible’’ as a basis for the Department’s decisionmaking. The Department believes the suggested change is unnecessary. The phrase ‘‘legally permissible’’ is consistent with the text throughout this section and sufficiently conveys the discretion to be afforded Indian tribes in developing their own policies and standards regarding the administration of DOL programs by Indian tribes. D. Section IV—Regulations A commenter recommended deleting the term ‘‘tribal officials’’ in section V to clarify that comments are normally provided by the Indian tribes, not individual tribal officials. The Department does not believe such a change is appropriate. The definition of ‘‘Tribal Officials’’ in Section X specifically recognizes that tribal officials have the authority to represent and act on behalf of their respective Indian tribes. E. Section V—Unfunded Mandates One commenter suggested deleting the term ‘‘tribal governments’’ in paragraphs (1) and (2) of this section because it is not defined in the policy. The commenter notes the proposed change would alleviate potential confusion caused by applying some Tribal Consultation Policy provisions to the undefined ‘‘tribal governments,’’ while applying other provisions to the defined term ‘‘Indian Tribes.’’ Moreover, while the term ‘‘Tribal Officials’’ is defined in Section X, the commenter suggested deleting this term in paragraph (2) to make clear that the policy is referring to the same entities throughout, and that the Unfunded Mandates section does not have a E:\FR\FM\04DEN1.SGM 04DEN1
