In order to prevent the possibility of dual taxation of motor fuels purchased by Montana
citizens and businesses on Indian reservations, the department and an Indian tribe
may enter into a cooperative agreement. The department may, with the concurrence of the attorney general, include as a member
of the negotiating team a representative of the department of justice who has expertise
in Indian matters. The department of transportation shall report the status of cooperative agreement
negotiations to the transportation interim committee. After negotiations are complete and if the legislature is not in session, the agreement
must be presented to the committee for review and comment before the final agreement
is submitted to the attorney general for approval pursuant to 18-11-105.
