IMDA empirically solves resource development

Royster 12, Co-Director – Native American Law Center @ University of Tulsa, ’12 (Judith V., “Tribal Energy Development: Renewables and the Problem of the Current Statutory Structures,” March, 31 Stan. Envtl. L.J. 91)

For tribes that wish to develop their fossil fuels or other traditional energy resources such as uranium, the existing federal statutory scheme offers fairly limitless possibilities. Tribes can enter into standard leases under the 1938 Indian Mineral Leasing Act (IMLA) n21 or into virtually any kind of negotiated lease or agreement under the 1982 Indian Mineral Development Act (IMDA). n22 The structure of an IMDA development deal is subject to negotiation between the tribe and the non-Indian entity, subject only to the approval of the Secretary of the Interior. Minerals agreements under the IMDA appear to be widely and successfully used. [*97]
