The IRR Program is a part of the Federal Lands Highway Program established to address transportation needs of tribes. The program is jointly administered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Federal Highway Administration's Federal Lands Highway Office. The Final Rule has an announced effective date of October 1, 2004. The Congressional Review Act requires a 60-day delay in the effective date of a major rule from the date of publication in the Federal Register or receipt of the rule by Congress, whichever is later. 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(3)(A). Because of an inadvertent clerical error, the Final Rule was not received by Congress until September 13, 2004. Therefore, implementation of the Final Rule by the Bureau of Indian Affairs is delayed until November 13, 2004.
Implementation of the Final Rule published at 69 FR 43090 will be delayed until November 13, 2004.Start Further Info
