Regulation Identifier Number 1010-AC25

Delegation of Royalty Management Functions to States

Abstract: The Minerals Management Service (MMS) proposes to add part 227 which authorizes the delegation of several Federal royalty management functions to States. Also, MMS proposes to amend its regulations at parts 228 and 229 to remove references to cooperative agreements and delegations for Federal lands under those parts. As a result, those parts would apply only to Indian cooperative agreements and delegation agreements with States for Indian lands within the State.
