Notice of Release From Federal Grant Assurance Obligations for Elko Regional Airport (EKO), Elko, Nevada
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately 5,037 square feet of airport property at the Elko Municipal Airport (Airport), City of Elko, Nevada. The City of Elko proposes to release the airport land in order to acquire an equal 5,037 square feet parcel of privately-owned land. The land exchange was proposed after a 2011 deed survey disclosed that the airport perimeter fence encroached into private property abutting the airport. Relocation of the fence is not practical due to the cost associated with moving the fence and underground utilities. The parties concluded that the encroachment problem could be resolved with an equitable land exchange. Since the release land is not needed for airport purposes, the exchange will not negatively impact the airport or civil aviation.

This policy guidance establishes the Department's intent to make determinations to acknowledge Federal Indian tribes within the contiguous 48 states only in accordance with the regulations established for that purpose at 25 CFR part 83. This notice directs any unrecognized group requesting that the Department acknowledge it as an Indian tribe, through reaffirmation or any other alternative basis, to petition under 25 CFR part 83 unless an alternate process is established by rulemaking following the effective date of this policy guidance.
This rule revises regulations governing the process and criteria by which the Secretary acknowledges an Indian tribe. The revisions seek to make the process and criteria more transparent, promote consistent implementation, and increase timeliness and efficiency, while maintaining the integrity and substantive rigor of the process. For decades, the current process has been criticized as ``broken'' and in need of reform. Specifically, the process has been criticized as too slow (a petition can take decades to be decided), expensive, burdensome, inefficient, intrusive, less than transparent and unpredictable. This rule reforms the process by, among other things, institutionalizing a phased review that allows for faster decisions; reducing the documentary burden while maintaining the existing rigor of the process; allowing for a hearing on a negative proposed finding to promote transparency and integrity; enhancing notice to tribes and local governments and enhancing transparency by posting all publicly available petition documents on the Department's Web site; establishing the Assistant Secretary's final determination as final for the Department to promote efficiency; and codifying and improving upon past Departmental implementation of standards, where appropriate, to ensure consistency, transparency, predictability and fairness.
