  1. Whether an MLD should serve for an entire project, even if the project includes another tribe’s cultural area;
  2. How to maintain the confidentiality of the location of discovered Native American remains;
  3. Whether there should be a definition of “placed or buried with” for purposes of determining what are associated grave goods under subdivision (d)(2) of Public Resources Code section 5097.98;
  • What measures should be used to enforce subdivision (e) of Public Resources Code section 5097.98 when the landowner reinters Native American remains and items associated and buried with remains; and
