22-3-916. Board decision -- order -- immunity against aggrieved parties -- relinquishment of control by tribal group. (1) Subject to the provisions of 2-4-621 and 2-4-623, at the conclusion of the hearing and upon receipt of the recommendations of the hearings examiner, the board shall:
(a) issue findings of facts and conclusions related to any decision regarding its determination supporting or denying a claimant's written request for the repatriation of human skeletal remains or funerary objects;
(b) issue findings of facts and conclusions related to any decision regarding a possessing entity's or intervenor's request for a temporary delay in repatriation pending completion of ongoing scientific study; and
(c) provide the claimant, respondent, possessing entity, or intervenor with a written copy of its findings and conclusions regarding the specific repatriation request.
(2) A possessing entity that repatriates culturally affiliated human skeletal remains or funerary objects in good faith pursuant to this section is not liable for claims by an aggrieved party or for claims of breach of a fiduciary duty or the public trust or of violation of state law that are inconsistent with this part.
(3) This section does not prevent the governing body of a tribal group from expressly relinquishing control over any human skeletal remains or control or title to any funerary object. The acquisition of a funerary object from a tribal group or individual with the voluntary consent of the tribal group or individual with authority to alienate the object constitutes the right of possession over that object. Divestiture of culturally affiliated human skeletal remains or funerary objects from a person without a right of possession does not constitute an unconstitutional taking of property.
