The Bureau of Land Management, Gov. Matt Mead and the State Historic Preservation Office recently signed a revised agreement outlining how the state and federal government consults to manage cultural resources.
Federal law requires the BLM to consult with the State Historic Preservation Office about how a project will affect archaeological and historic sites on public land.
The revised protocol brings more clarity and consistency to how the consultation process occurs, and provides for increased participation from American Indian tribes and the public, according to a release from the state.
