Government-to-Government Consultation Act: state-tribal consultation: training.


Existing law encourages and authorizes all state agencies to cooperate with federally recognized California tribes on matters of economic development and improvement for the tribes, including providing information on programs available to assist Indian tribes, providing technical assistance on the preparation of grants and applications for public and private funds, and conducting meetings and workshops. This bill would encourage the state and its agencies to consult on a government-to-government basis with federally recognized and, as specified, with nonfederally recognized tribes. The bill would designate state officials authorized to represent the state in government-to-government consultations, as provided. The bill would require the Department of Human Resources, in conjunction with the University of California, UCLA School of Law Tribal Legal Development Clinic, the National Indian Justice Center, and tribal organizations with 10 or more years experience in matters relating to tribal affairs, to develop a training, by June 1, 2024, regarding the required elements of training on government-to-government consultations. The bill would require the designated state officials to complete the training by January 1, 2025, or, for officials appointed after that date, within 6 months of their appointment, as specified, and would require each official to retake the training annually.
