Heinrich Applauds Progress On New Tribal Land Rules To Expedite Home Building And Energy Development

WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 30, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S Rep. Martin Heinrich (NM-1) applauds the Department of the Interior for proposing arule to modify regulations governing the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ (BIA) process for approving the lease of lands the federal government holds in trust for tribes and individuals. The proposed reform identifies specific processes – with enforceable timelines – through which the BIA must review leases. The regulation establishes separate, simplified processes for residential, business, and renewable energy development, so that, for example, a lease for a single family home is distinguished from a large solar energy project.
