Tribal Consultation

The CPUC is developing a Tribal Consultation Policy so that it can better communicate and consult with California Indian Tribes. As Governor Brown stated in Executive Order B-10-11, “the State is committed to strengthening and sustaining effective government-to-government relationships between the State and the Tribes by identifying areas of mutual concern and working to develop partnerships and consensus.”

On April 26, 2018, the CPUC voted to approve a Tribal Consultation policy following public comments and feedback on the draft policy.
