California Energy Commission
Tribal Consultation Policy Development

Draft Tribal Consultation Policy

Governor Brown signed Executive Order B-10-11 in September 2011, directing state agencies and departments to engage in effective government-to-government cooperation, collaboration, communication and consultation with tribal entities concerning the development of legislation, regulations, rules and policies on matters that may affect tribal entities. The Resources Agency adopted a tribal consultation policy in November 2012, that implements Executive Order B-10-11. The Energy Commission's draft policy below furthers the state effort to promote effective government-to-government tribal consultation.

The Energy Commission is accepting comments on the final draft policy through December 3, 2014.

The Energy Commission staff invites you to review and provide comments on the final draft tribal consultation policy. Please contact Thomas Gates at (916) 654-5008, should you wish to comment on the policy or discuss this matter further.
