Assembly Bill 52, signed into law in September 2014, set forth new requirements for consultation with tribes regarding projects that may affect a tribal cultural resource.  AB 52 provided a broad definition of what may be considered a tribal cultural resource and included a list of recommended mitigation measures that may be considered to avoid significant impacts.   The law also established a consultation process with tribes on the Native American Heritage Commission list, and requires notices to tribes and "meaningful consultation".  This program will be presented by two seasoned archaeologists with experience working with local tribes, who will describe their experience working with local agencies and tribes to comply with the requirements of AB 52.
