On May 19, 2005, the Bureau of Indian Affairs published a proposed rule to amend its regulations governing the compilation of rolls of Indians in order to open the enrollment applications process for the Western Shoshone Identifiable Group of Indians (70 FR 28859). Last year we made a commitment to hold meetings with the Shoshone people to discuss the proposed rule. We were unable, however, to schedule the meetings in Elko and Reno, Nevada until August 20 and 27, 2005. We must therefore extend the comment period beyond the original deadline of July 18, 2005.Start Signature
