State Bar Center, Albuquerque
Thursday, November 1, 2012
3.2 General CLE Credits
Followed by lunch and the N.M. State Bar Indian Law Section Annual Meeting
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.
