I'm on the road this weekend, and don't have access to all my material. However, the possible changes involving more extensive regulation are only in the contemplated stage, so unless something happens unexpectedly soon, you're OK on them this Spring.
To be clear, there are some tribal-related restrictions in place already. If you are the permit holder, they should be outlined in the information that came with your permit -- things like the river left restrictions below the LCR, etc. It also may be helpful to look at these excerpts from the Park info about the Tribal interface with the park.
