                    Mr. BISHOP  of Utah, from the Committee on Natural Resources,
                                       submitted the following


                                          [To accompany S. 245]

                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                     The Committee  on Natural Resources, to whom was referred the

                   sidered the same, report favorably thereon without amendment and

                                        PURPOSE  OF THE BILL
                     The purpose of S. 245 is to amend the Indian Tribal Energy De-
                   velopment and Self Determination Act of 2005.
                               BACKGROUND  AND  NEED FOR  LEGISLATION
                     For several years Congress has  heard from  concerned Indian
                   tribes that certain federal laws governing the development of tribal
                   energy resources are complex and  often lead to significant cost,
                   delay and uncertainty for all parties to tribal energy transactions.
                   These costs, delays, and uncertainties tend to discourage develop-
                   ment of tribal trust energy resources and drive development invest-
                   ments to private or non-tribal lands that are not subject to these
                   same federal laws.
                     Title V of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which authorized tribal
                   energy resource agreements  (TERA),1  was  intended to address
                   these concerns by removing much of the bureaucracy and shifting
                   the approval requirements for these transactions from the Sec-

                   'Public Law 109-58, 25 U.S.C. 3504.
