What Executive Orders in recent years has the President signed that significantly addresses tribal governments and interests?


Executive Order 13084 (May 14, 1998), "Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments", restates the unique legal relationship the United States has with Indian Tribal Governments as set forth in the Constitution of the United States, treaties, statutes, Executive Orders and court decisions. The Executive Order also maintains that the United States continues to work with Indian Tribes on a government-to-government basis to address issues concerning Indian Tribal Self-Government, trust resources, and Indian Tribal treaty and other rights. Further, it charges the federal agencies with responsibility to have an effective process to permit elected officials and other representatives of Indian Tribal Governments to provide meaningful and timely input in the development of regulatory policies on matters that significantly or uniquely affect their communities. Each agency is also charged with reviewing the processes under which Indian Tribal Governments apply for waivers of statutory and regulatory requirements and take appropriate steps to streamline those processes to the extent practicable and permitted by law.
