Executive Order 13175 on Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments (2000)
Executive Order 13175 sets forth principles and criteria to which agencies must adhere in policymaking that has tribal implications. These include respecting Indian tribal self-government and sovereignty, consulting with tribal officials on the need for Federal standards, and providing "the maximum administrative discretion possible" where Indian tribal governments administer Federal statutes and regulations.
Federal agencies are required to consult with State and local governments and consider the impacts of their rulemakings on them when rulemaking actions have federalism implications.
