SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    As sovereignties, federally recognized tribes have the right to 
establish their own probate codes. When those probate codes govern the 
descent and distribution of trust or restricted property, they must be 
approved by the Secretary of the Department of the Interior. The 
American Indian Probate Reform Act of 2004 (AIPRA) amendments to the 
Indian Land Consolidation Act, 25 U.S.C. 2201 et seq, provides that any 
tribal probate code, any amendment to a tribal probate

[[Page 73656]]

code, and any free-standing single heir rule are subject to the 
approval of the Secretary if they contain provisions governing trust 
lands. This statute also establishes the basics of review and approval 
of tribal probate codes. This information collection covers tribes' 
submission of tribal probate codes, amendments, and free-standing 
single heir rules containing provisions regarding trust lands to the 
Secretary for approval. We are adjusting the estimated number of 
respondents down to 10, based on the number of submissions received per 
year since AIPRA was passed.

(hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could 
enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection 
of the information on the respondents, such as through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology.
    Please note that an agency may not sponsor or conduct, and an 
individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it 
has a valid OMB Control Number. Approval for this collection expires
