II. Background In January 2009, the Commission directed the NRC staff to develop an internal protocol for interactions with Native American Tribal governments that allows for custom approaches to address the interests of both the NRC and the Tribal governments on a caseby-case basis (SRM–M081211). On November 5, 2009, President Obama issued a Presidential Memorandum, VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:08 Nov 28, 2014 Jkt 235001 ‘‘Tribal Consultation’’ (74 FR 5881), that reaffirmed Executive Order 13175, ‘‘Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments’’ (November 6, 2000; 65 FR 67249), and emphasized the importance of strengthening government-to-government relationships with Native American Tribes. In SECY–09–0180, ‘‘U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Interaction with Native American Tribes,’’ dated December 11, 2009, the NRC staff reviewed its various interactions with Native American Tribes, and noted that these interactions were limited to a small number of activities under the NRC regulatory authority. At that time, the NRC staff concluded that a ‘‘case-bycase’’ approach had proved effective in interactions with Native American Tribes by allowing for custom-tailored approaches that met Commission and tribal needs, and that no formal policy was needed. The NRC staff also noted that internal guidance on protocol would further enhance the NRC staff’s engagement with Native American Tribes. The internal NRC guidance, ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Employees,’’ was developed and issued in March 2010. It was revised in October 2012. III. Discussion Section 161p. of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as Amended, permits the NRC to make, promulgate, issue, rescind, and amend such rules and regulations as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this Act. This can include the development of guidance documents for implementation of the NRC’s policies or provisions. On October 12, 2012, the NRC published the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual’’ for public comment and requested public comments providing suggestions for a proposed tribal consultation policy statement (77 FR 62269) for a 180-day comment period. After reviewing the public comments on the October 2012 version of the Tribal Protocol Manual, the NRC revised the staff guidance. The NRC received six comment letters on the Tribal Policy Statement and protocol. Commenters included two Tribal governments, two mining associations, one inter-Tribal organization, and a Tribal college. The comments were grouped within the topics of: (1) NRC Tribal communication, (2) NRC Tribal consultation, (3) NRC Tribal resources, (4) terminology, (5) NRC map of Tribal PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71135 reservations near nuclear reactors, (6) Federal-Tribal history, and (7) contemporary Tribal conditions. The NRC is making available ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff—Comment Responses.’’ The NRC revised the Tribal Protocol Manual to define consultation for the NRC as ‘‘meaningful and timely discussion with Tribal governments on NRC regulatory actions that have substantial direct effects on one or more Indian Tribes.’’ The NRC revised the Tribal Protocol Manual to better address the unique relationship between the United States and Tribes and how the NRC exercises its trust responsibility. The NRC also made changes to the historical account of the Federal-Tribal relationship. The Tribal Protocol Manual now includes a general discussion that addresses the contributions of Treaties, policy, law, court decisions, and Executive Orders to Federal Indian law. On August 27, 2014, the Commission directed the NRC staff (‘‘Staff Requirements—SECY–14–0006—Tribal Consultation Policy Statement and Protocol’’) to publish a draft ‘‘Tribal Policy Statement,’’ which also appears in today’s Federal Register, and ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff, Revision 1’’ for comment. This notice requests public comment on the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff, Revision 1.’’ Public comments that were received on the October 2012 version of the Tribal Protocol Manual and the NRC responses to the public comments can be found in ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff—Comment Responses;’’ the comments received on the October 2012 version of the Tribal Protocol Manual are available through any of the methods described in Section I, ‘‘Obtaining Information and Submitting Comments,’’ of this document (i.e., through the Federal rulemaking site, NRC’s ADAMS, or the NRC’s PDR). The next scheduled revision of the Tribal Protocol Manual will include changes needed to conform to the final Tribal Policy Statement and will be informed by public comments on the revised Tribal Protocol Manual.

II. Background

    In January 2009, the Commission directed the NRC staff to develop 
an internal protocol for interactions with Native American Tribal 
governments that allows for custom approaches to address the interests 
of both the NRC and the Tribal governments on a case-by-case basis 
(SRM-M081211). On November 5, 2009, President Obama issued a 
Presidential Memorandum, ``Tribal Consultation'' (74 FR 5881), that 
reaffirmed Executive Order 13175, ``Consultation and Coordination with 
Indian Tribal Governments'' (November 6, 2000; 65 FR 67249), and 
emphasized the importance of strengthening government-to-government 
relationships with Native American Tribes. In SECY-09-0180, ``U.S. 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission Interaction with Native American 
Tribes,'' dated December 11, 2009, the NRC staff reviewed its various 
interactions with Native American Tribes, and noted that these 
interactions were limited to a small number of activities under the NRC 
regulatory authority. At that time, the NRC staff concluded that a 
``case-by-case'' approach had proved effective in interactions with 
Native American Tribes by allowing for custom-tailored approaches that 
met Commission and tribal needs, and that no formal policy was needed. 
The NRC staff also noted that internal guidance on protocol would 
further enhance the NRC staff's engagement with Native American Tribes. 
The internal NRC guidance, ``Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC 
Employees,'' was developed and issued in March 2010. It was revised in 
October 2012.

III. Discussion

    Section 161p. of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as Amended, permits 
the NRC to make, promulgate, issue, rescind, and amend such rules and 
regulations as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this Act. 
This can include the development of guidance documents for 
implementation of the NRC's policies or provisions.
    On October 12, 2012, the NRC published the ``Tribal Protocol 
Manual'' for public comment and requested public comments providing 
suggestions for a proposed tribal consultation policy statement (77 FR 
62269) for a 180-day comment period. After reviewing the public 
comments on the October 2012 version of the Tribal Protocol Manual, the 
NRC revised the staff guidance. The NRC received six comment letters on 
the Tribal Policy Statement and protocol. Commenters included two 
Tribal governments, two mining associations, one inter-Tribal 
organization, and a Tribal college. The comments were grouped within 
the topics of: (1) NRC Tribal communication, (2) NRC Tribal 
consultation, (3) NRC Tribal resources, (4) terminology, (5) NRC map of 
Tribal reservations near nuclear reactors, (6) Federal-Tribal history, 
and (7) contemporary Tribal conditions. The NRC is making available 
``Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff--Comment Responses.''
    The NRC revised the Tribal Protocol Manual to define consultation 
for the NRC as ``meaningful and timely discussion with Tribal 
governments on NRC regulatory actions that have substantial direct 
effects on one or more Indian Tribes.'' The NRC revised the Tribal 
Protocol Manual to better address the unique relationship between the 
United States and Tribes and how the NRC exercises its trust 
responsibility. The NRC also made changes to the historical account of 
the Federal-Tribal relationship. The Tribal Protocol Manual now 
includes a general discussion that addresses the contributions of 
Treaties, policy, law, court decisions, and Executive Orders to Federal 
Indian law.
    On August 27, 2014, the Commission directed the NRC staff (``Staff 
Requirements--SECY-14-0006--Tribal Consultation Policy Statement and 
Protocol'') to publish a draft ``Tribal Policy Statement,'' which also 
appears in today's Federal Register, and ``Tribal Protocol Manual: 
Guidance for NRC Staff, Revision 1'' for comment. This notice requests 
public comment on the ``Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff, 
Revision 1.'' Public comments that were received on the October 2012 
version of the Tribal Protocol Manual and the NRC responses to the 
public comments can be found in ``Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for 
NRC Staff--Comment Responses;'' the comments received on the October 
2012 version of the Tribal Protocol Manual are available through any of 
the methods described in Section I, ``Obtaining Information and 
Submitting Comments,'' of this document (i.e., through the Federal 
rulemaking site, NRC's ADAMS, or the NRC's PDR). The next scheduled 
revision of the Tribal Protocol Manual will include changes needed to 
conform to the final Tribal Policy Statement and will be informed by 
public comments on the revised Tribal Protocol Manual.
