FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Elizabeth K. Appel, (202) 273–4680. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Abstract The Energy Policy Act of 2005, 25 U.S.C. 3503 authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to approve individual Tribal Energy Resource Agreements (TERAs). The intent of these agreements is to promote Tribal oversight and management of energy and mineral resource development on Tribal lands and further the goal of Indian selfdetermination. A TERA offers a Tribe an alternative for developing energy-related business agreements and awarding leases and granting rights-of-way for energy facilities without having to obtain further approval from the Secretary. This information collection conducted under TERA regulations at 25 CFR 224 will allow IEED to determine the capacity of Tribes to manage the development of energy resources on Tribal lands. Information collection: • Enables IEED to engage in a consultation process with Tribes that is designed to foster optimal pre-planning of development proposals and speed up the review and approval process for TERA agreements; • Provides wide public notice and opportunity for review of TERA agreements by the public, industry, and government agencies; • Ensures that the public has an avenue for review of the performance of Tribes in implementing a TERA; • Creates a process for preventing damage to sensitive resources as well as ensuring that the public has fully communicated with the Tribe in the petition process; • Ensures that a Tribe is fully aware of any attempt by the Department of the Interior to resume management authority over energy resources on Tribal lands; and • Ensures that the Tribal government fully endorses any relinquishment of a TERA.
