SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

BIA published a proposed rule on land acquisitions in Alaska on May 1, 2014 (79 FR 24648). This proposed rule would delete a provision in the Department of the Interior's land-into-trust regulations that excludes from the scope of the regulations, with one exception, land acquisitions in trust in the State of Alaska. Since publication of the proposed rule, BIA has received several requests to extend the comment period. Accordingly, to provide additional time for review and comment on the proposed rule, BIA is extending its original 60-day comment period by an additional 30 days.
