Proposed Draft Contact List Regulations

On October 20, 2023, NAHC Commissioners approved the release of the Proposed Draft Contact List Regulations to interested parties to review and give comment. This first step is a part of the Pre APA-Rulemaking Process and will allow tribes to give important feedback and comments to the continued formulation of these Draft Contact List Regulations. This comment period will conclude on Friday, February 02, 2024. Once initial tribal input is received, reviewed, and considered, the NAHC will summarize all comments from tribes and post the Proposed Draft Contact List Comment & Response to Comment Summary within the Proposed Regulations Tab found on our Website Homepage. Once a revised Draft is developed and potentially approved by Commissioners, the Draft Regulations will be submitted to the Office of Administrative Law to begin the formal APA-Rulemaking Process which will include a minimum 45-day Public Comment on these regulations.
