SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

16 U.S.C. 460l-9(c)(1) provides that, after notifying the House Committee on Natural Resources and the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, the Secretary of the Interior is authorized to make this boundary revision upon publication of notice in the Federal Register. The Committees have been notified of this boundary revision. Inclusion of these lands within the park boundary will enable the landowner to sell the subject land to the National Park Service. The inclusion and acquisition of this property will enable the Service to relocate the original barracks onto the property and thereby more accurately interpret the events that took place during the Japanese-American internment from 1942 to 1945. Additionally, the boundary revision will provide protection of historic physical features and remnants of buildings located on the property.
