Description: This program provides an introduction to the Helping Expedite and Advance Responsible Tribal Homeownership Act, which was signed into law on July 30, 2012. The Act will give tribal governments the discretion to lease restricted lands for residential, business, agricultural, public, religious, educational, or recreational purposes without needing the approval of the Secretary of the Interior if the tribal governments develop and implement their own leasing regulations. This program will look at the future of leasing tribal lands and discuss whether the Act will encourage economic growth, promote community development in Indian country, and support tribal self-determination.

The agenda and registration information can be found here.

One Response to HEARTH ACT CLE

    That’s great. I was asked by the Chief Assistant to former Senator Dorgan who drafted and introduced the original bill in 2010. I have following it closely until I retired from the BIA June 2012. I have several thoughts on implementation by tribes and have been trying to get them out there. I understand that BIA is working on an implementation plan, but I don’t think tribal consultation has occurred yet. Anyway, do you have an agenda? Check out my article which has been posted on 2 sites now at: http://roundhousetalk.com/editorials/1103-2/ Wish I could attend and provide comment, but I’m not an attorney. Really great discussion topic you have proposed.
