SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The ITARA became law on June 22, 2016. Title 
II of ITARA authorizes the Secretary of the Interior (Secretary) to 
establish and carry out an Indian trust asset management demonstration 
project (demonstration project or project). The demonstration project 
will allow participating Tribes to enter into, approve, and carry out 
surface leasing transaction or forest land management activity without 
approval of the Secretary if certain conditions are met.
    Once the demonstration project is established, eligible Tribes may 
request to participate by submitting to the Secretary a complete 
application package. Applications must include a copy of a resolution 
or other appropriate action by the governing body of the Indian Tribe 
in support of or authorizing the application and state that the Indian 
Tribe is requesting to participate in the demonstration project. The 
Secretary will provide a written notice to each Tribe approved to 
participate in the project.
    Tribes that have been selected to participate in the project may 
submit to the Secretary a proposed Indian trust asset management plan. 
Under section 204(a)(2) of ITARA, Indian trust asset management plans 
must:
    (A) Identify the trust assets that will be subject to the plan;
    (B) Establish trust asset management objectives and priorities for 
Indian trust assets that are located within the reservation, or 
otherwise subject to the jurisdiction, of the Indian Tribe;
    (C) Allocate trust asset management funding that is available for 
the Indian trust assets subject to the plan in order to meet the trust 
asset management objectives and priorities;
    (D) Identify functions or activities that are being or will be 
performed by the Indian Tribe under contract, compacts, or other 
agreements under the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance 
Act (25 U.S.C. 5301 et seq.), which may include any of the surface 
leasing or forest land management activities authorized by the proposed 
management plan and describe the practices and procedures that the

    (E) Establish procedures for nonbinding mediation or resolution of 
any dispute between the Indian Tribe and the United States relating to

    Further, in accordance with section 204(c), an Indian trust asset 
management plan, and any activity carried out under the plan, shall not

statutes, and executive orders that are applicable to the trust assets, 
or the management of the trust assets, identified in the plan.
    The Secretary may approve an Indian trust asset management plan 
that includes a provision authorizing the Tribe to enter into, approve, 
and carry out a surface leasing transaction or forest management 
activity without approval of the Secretary, regardless of whether the 
surface leasing transaction or forest land management activity would
