SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This notice is published to comply with the requirement of 25 CFR 151.12(b) that notice be given to the public of the Secretary's decision to acquire land in trust at least 30 days prior to signatory acceptance of the land into trust. The purpose of the 30-day waiting period in 25 CFR 151.12(b) is to afford interested parties the opportunity to seek judicial review of final administrative decisions to take land in trust for Indian tribes and individual Indians before transfer of title to the property occurs. On April 21, 2004, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs decided to accept approximately 12.72 acres of land into trust for the Suquamish Tribe of Washington under the authority of the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, 25 U.S.C. 465. On April 10, 2003, the Regional Solicitor, Pacific Northwest Region determined that the acquisition of this parcel in trust status for gaming is consistent with the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, 25 U.S.C. 2719 (a)(1), because the parcel is located within the boundaries of the Suquamish Reservation as the reservation existed on October 17, 1988.
