Discussion On October 12, 2012, the NRC published a notice in the Federal Register requesting comment on both the draft ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual’’ and the proposed ‘‘Tribal Policy Statement’’ (77 FR 62269). The NRC received six comment letters on the ‘‘Tribal Policy Statement’’ and the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual.’’ The commenters included two Tribal governments, two mining associations, one inter-Tribal organization, and a Tribal college. The comments were grouped into seven topical areas: (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’s responses to these comments are available in ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff—Comment Responses,’’ which is cited below. On January 9, 2017 (82 FR 2402), the NRC issued its ‘‘Tribal Policy Statement.’’ The ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual’’ has been revised to be consistent with the ‘‘Tribal Policy Statement’’ and to reflect changes made in response to public comments. In response to public comments and the NRC’s work on the ‘‘Tribal Policy Statement,’’ the agency is revising the definition of ‘‘consultation.’’ In the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual’’ (p. 16), ‘‘consultation’’ is now defined as ‘‘meaningful and timely discussion with Tribal governments on NRC regulatory actions that have substantial direct effects on one or more Indian Tribes and those regulatory actions for which Tribal consultation is required under Federal statute. The NRC’s Tribal consultation allows Indian Tribes the opportunity to provide input on regulatory actions with Tribal implications and those where Tribal consultation is required, and is different from the outreach and public comment periods.’’ The NRC revised the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual’’ to better address the unique relationship between the United States Government and Tribes and how the NRC exercises its trust responsibility. The NRC also made changes to the historical account of the Federal-Tribal relationship; specifically, 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.
