SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On January 24, 2014, the Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs issued a final agency determination to acquire approximately 626.55 acres of land in trust for the Mechoopda Indian Tribe of Chico Rancheria of California (Tribe) for gaming and other purposes. Notice of the January 24, 2014 final agency determination was published in the Federal Register on February 5, 2014. 79 FR 6917. The Federal Register Notice published on February 5, 2014, did not reflect an estimate that had been prepared by the Bureau of Land Management using the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) model. This technical correction does not change the footprint of the acquisition published on February 5, 2014, it merely provides a more accurate estimate of the total acreage within the boundaries of the January 24, 2014 final agency determination. The Federal Register Notice published on February 5, 2014, is now clarified to reflect the GIS model estimate of approximately 631 acres.

Furthermore, the land description in the February 5, 2014, notice is correct, but has been amended by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to eliminate unnecessary or duplicative information. On pages 6917 and 6918 of the February 5, 2014, Federal Register, the land description is amended to read as follows:
