Background The Kingpin Act became law on December 3, 1999. The Kingpin Act establishes a program targeting the activities of significant foreign narcotics traffickers and their organizations on a worldwide basis. It provides a statutory framework for the imposition of sanctions against significant foreign narcotics traffickers and their organizations on a worldwide basis, with the objective of denying their businesses and agents access to the U.S. financial system and the benefits of trade and transactions involving U.S. companies and individuals. The Kingpin Act blocks all property and interests in property, subject to U.S. jurisdiction, owned or controlled by significant foreign narcotics traffickers as identified by the President. In addition, the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Attorney General, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of State, and the Secretary of Homeland Security, may designate and block the property and interests in property, subject to U.S. jurisdiction, of persons who are found to be: (1) Materially assisting in, or providing financial or technological support for or to, or providing goods or services in support of, the international narcotics trafficking activities of a person designated pursuant to the Kingpin Act; (2) owned, controlled, or directed by, or acting for or on behalf of, a person designated pursuant to the Kingpin Act; or (3) playing a significant role in international narcotics trafficking.

In releasing the interim policy, Treasury solicited comments from tribes. While the policy was being reviewed and finalized, Treasury has operated under the interim consultation policy. In response, Treasury received over 25 comments from Indian tribal governments and tribal organizations. The written comments and other feedback received via ongoing tribal consultation were very helpful in developing Treasury’s final tribal consultation policy. We appreciate the commenters’ interest in working with Treasury to develop a consultation policy that satisfies the concerns of Indian tribal governments and their leaders while enabling Treasury to continue to develop and implement policy in a timely and efficient manner. The final policy includes a number of changes suggested in these comments, including the following: • The policy no longer includes the phrase ‘‘endeavor to consult,’’ and now simply states that Treasury will consult with tribes on policy matters with tribal implications, under the procedures set forth in the policy. • The final policy now provides for consultation with tribes on policy matters of ‘‘general applicability that may have an impact on Indian Tribes or their members.’’ • While a timely response to consultation requests has always been Treasury’s goal, the final policy now formally requires the POCTC to acknowledge requests for consultation ‘‘within a reasonable period.’’ While we incorporated a number of comments, we have retained the language of the interim policy with respect to consultation on actions to enforce requirements administered by the agency (Section III.A.). After further consideration, it remains our view that consultation on such matters would present a number of legal and practical challenges, and is not within the purview of Executive Order 13175. Our guidance on the General Welfare Exclusion, the Per Capita Act, minor trusts, and other important matters, shows that a robust tribal consultation process can address tribes’ concerns about enforcement actions or penalties when it is appropriate to do so. The consultation policy will be updated periodically and refined as needed to reflect ongoing engagement and collaboration with Tribal partners. E:\FR\FM\23SEN1.SGM 23SEN1
