Tribal Transportation Self-Governance Program (TTSGP)

The Department has issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that would establish a Tribal Transportation Self-Governance Program pursuant to Section 1121 of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act (23 U.S.C. 207). The Department jointly developed the NPRM with Tribal representatives through the TTSGP Negotiated Rulemaking Committee consistent with the Negotiated Rulemaking Act and in a manner that reflects the unique government-to-government relationship between Indian Tribes and the United States.

The Department published the proposed rule in the Federal Register on October 2, 2019.  The comment period is open through December 2, 2019.  Comments are accepted online through the docket and other methods as set forth in the NPRM.

In addition, the Department will hold three in-person consultations and one virtual consultation.
