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 Associate Deputy 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 days waiting period in 25 CFR 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 December 4, 2006, the Associate Deputy Secretary decided to accept approximately 31,777.066 acres, more or less, of land into trust for the Jicarilla Apache Tribe of New Mexico pursuant to the Act of June 18, 1934 (48 Stat., 986; 25 U.S.C. 467). The Associate Deputy Secretary shall acquire title in the name of the United States in trust for the Jicarilla Apache Tribe of New Mexico for the following parcel of land described below no sooner than 30 days after the date of this notice.

New Mexico Principal Meridian, Rio Arriba County, New Mexico.
