Sec. 1403. Preparation of plan

-STATUTE-

(a) Prerequisites for final preparation

The Secretary shall prepare a plan which shall best serve the

interests of all those entities and individuals entitled to receive

funds of each Indian judgment. Prior to the final preparation of

the plan, the Secretary shall -

(1) receive and consider any resolution or communication,

together with any suggested use or distribution plan, which any

affected Indian tribe may wish to submit to him; and

(2) hold a hearing of record, after appropriate public notice,

to obtain the testimony of leaders and members of the Indian

tribe which may receive any portion, or be affected by the use or

distribution, of such funds, in the area in which such Indian

tribe is located and at a time which shall best serve the

convenience of the eligible members thereof.

(b) Guidelines

In preparing a plan for the use or distribution of the funds of

each Indian judgment, the Secretary shall, among other things, be

assured that -

(1) legal, financial, and other expertise of the Department of

the Interior has been made fully available in an advisory

capacity to the Indian tribe which is entitled to such funds to

assist it to develop and communicate to the Secretary pursuant to

clause (1) of subsection (a) of this section its own suggested

plan for the distribution and use of such funds;

(2) the needs and desires of any groups or individuals who are

in a minority position, but who are also entitled to receive such

funds, have been fully ascertained and considered;

(3) the interests of minors and other legally incompetent

persons who are entitled to receive any portion of such funds as

are subsequently distributed to them are and will be protected

and preserved; (!1) Provided, That such funds may be disbursed to

the parents or legal guardian of such minors or legal

incompetents in such amounts as may be necessary for the minor or

legal incompetent's health, education, welfare, or emergencies

under a plan or plans approved by the Secretary and the tribal

governing body of the Indian tribe involved.(!2)

(4) any provision, including enrollment provisions, of the

constitution, bylaws, rules, and procedures of such tribe which

may affect the distribution or other use of such funds are in

full accord with the principles of fairness and equity;

(5) a significant portion of such funds shall be set aside and

programed to serve common tribal needs, educational requirements,

and such other purposes as the circumstances of the affected

Indian tribe may justify, except not less than 20 per centum of

such funds shall be so set aside and programed unless the

Secretary determines that the particular circumstances of the

pertinent Indian tribe clearly warrant otherwise: Provided, That

in the development of such plan the Secretary shall survey past

and present plans of the tribe for economic development, shall

consider long range benefits which might accrue to the tribe from

such plans, and shall encourage programing of funds for economic

development purposes where appropriate; and

(6) methods exist and will be employed to insure the proper

performance of the plan once it becomes effective under section

1405 of this title.
