II. Discussion

On December 1, 2014 (79 FR 71136), the NRC requested comments on the proposed “NRC Tribal Policy Statement” (ADAMS Accession No. ML14279A180). The proposed policy statement establishes principles to be followed by the NRC to ensure effective government-to-government interactions with American Indian and Alaska Native Tribes and to encourage and facilitate Tribal involvement in the areas over which the Commission has jurisdiction. The NRC is committed to an open and collaborative regulatory environment in the development and implementation of activities that have Tribal implications and welcomes public comment as a means to foster meaningful consultation and coordination with Indian Tribes. The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on March 31, 2015. The NRC has decided to extend the public comment period on this document until May 31, 2015, to allow more time for members of the public to submit their comments.
