December 17, 2020
The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) has released a technical advisory for the implementation of AB 168 (Chapter 166, Statutes of 2020), which required lead agencies considering ministerial approval of housing development pursuant to SB 35 to consult with California Native American tribes.
The advisory document provides an overview of the new process created pursuant to AB 168 and is intended to provide guidance to lead agencies on the procedures for tribal consultation required under this new law.
The technical advisory is intended to provide guidance only and should not be construed as legal advice. The technical advisory document is available here. For more information, please reach out to Sloane Viola, OPR legislative director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
