Interior may not promulgate--
            (1) as final regulations, the proposed regulations 
        published on January 22, 1998, at 63 Fed. Reg. 3289; or
            (2) any similar regulations to provide for procedures for 
        gaming activities under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (25 
        U.S.C. 2701 et seq.) in any case in which a State asserts a 
        defense of sovereign immunity to a lawsuit brought by an Indian 
        tribe in a Federal court under section 11(d)(7) of that Act (25 
        U.S.C. 2710(d)(7)) to compel the State to participate in 
        compact negotiations for class III gaming (as that term is 
        defined in section 4(8) of that Act (25 U.S.C. 2703(8))).
