SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA or the Act), Public Law 100–497, 25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq., was signed into law on October 17, 1988. The Act established the Commission and set out a comprehensive framework for the regulation of gaming on Indian lands. The purposes of the Act include: Providing a statutory basis for the operation of gaming by Indian tribes as a means of promoting tribal economic development, self-sufficiency, and strong tribal governments; ensuring that the Indian tribe is the primary beneficiary of the gaming operation; and declaring that the establishment of independent federal regulatory authority for gaming on Indian lands, the establishment of federal standards for gaming on Indian lands, and the establishment of a National Indian Gaming Commission are necessary to meet congressional concerns regarding gaming and to protect such gaming as a means of generating tribal revenue. 25 U.S.C. 2702. II. Previous Rulemaking Activity On August 9, 2012, the Commission published a final rule amending 25 CFR part 573 (Compliance and Enforcement) to include a graduated pre-enforcement process through which a tribe may come into voluntary compliance. 77 FR 47517, Aug. 9, 2012. This document updates references in 25 CFR part 514 that are no longer accurate due to those amendments. On September 25, 2012, the Commission published a final rule consolidating all appeal proceedings before the Commission into a (then) new subchapter H (Appeal Proceedings Before the Commission), thereby removing former parts 524, 539, and 577. 77 FR 58941, Sept. 25, 2012. This document updates 25 CFR parts 513, 514, 522, 533, 535, 571, 573, and 575 to remove references to those parts no longer in existence. On January 25, 2013, the Commission published a final rule amending 25 CFR E:\FR\FM\05JNR1.SGM 05JNR1 31992 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 108 / Friday, June 5, 2015 / Rules and Regulations parts 556 and 558 (Background investigations and Gaming Licenses for Key Employees and Primary Management Officials) to streamline certain submissions to the Commission and to ensure that certain tribal notifications comply with the Act. 78 FR 5276, Jan 25. 2013. This document updates 25 CFR part 573 to reflect the amendments to those parts. In June of 2014, the Commission relocated its headquarters. This document updates the mailing address contained within 25 CFR parts 514 and 516. The Commission also identified minor grammatical errors in certain other regulations and now corrects those errors. III. Corrections 25 CFR Part 502—Definitions of This Chapter This document revises the definition of ‘‘Chairman’’ in 25 CFR 502.1 to include the word ‘‘Chair.’’ This reflects the gender-neutral term that occurs elsewhere in the Commission’s regulations. No substantive change is intended with this correction. 25 CFR Part 513—Debt Collection This document revises 25 CFR 513.4(b) and 513.32(a) to remove references to the appeal procedures formerly found at 25 CFR part 577 (which no longer exists). It now references the appeal procedure at 25 CFR parts 580–585. This document also corrects a grammatical error in § 513.32(a): In the third sentence, the first ‘‘matters’’ is corrected to the singular ‘‘matter,’’ while the second ‘‘matters’’ remains plural. 25 CFR Part 514—Fees This document revises 25 CFR 514.8 and 514.17(c) to reflect the Commission’s new mailing address. This document also amends 25 CFR 514.10 to revise paragraphs (a) and (b) to correct a reference from ‘‘25 CFR 573.6(a)(2)’’ to ‘‘25 CFR 573.4(a)(2).’’ mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 25 CFR Part 516—Testimony of Current and Former Commissioners and NIGC Employees; Response to Subpoenas The document revises 25 CFR 516.4(b) to reflect the Commission’s new mailing address. 25 CFR Part 522—Submission of Gaming Ordinance or Resolution This document revises 25 CFR 522.5 and 522.7(a), (b) to remove references to 25 CFR part 524 (which no longer exists) and replaces them with references to 25 CFR part 582. This document also revises 25 CFR 522.10(c) and (f) to make minor grammatical VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:17 Jun 04, 2015 Jkt 235001 changes. In paragraph (c), ‘‘Tribe’’ is changed to ‘‘tribe’’; in paragraph (f), a comma is placed after ‘‘limits.’’ 25 CFR Part 531—Content of Management Contracts This document amends 25 CFR 531.1 to revise paragraphs (b)(4), (b)(6), and (b)(16) by making minor grammatical changes and by clarifying certain requirements. In paragraph (b)(4), a comma is placed after ‘‘training’’; in paragraph (b)(6), the word ‘‘gaming’’ is added before ‘‘operation’s’’; and in paragraph (b)(16), the phrase ‘‘National Indian Gaming Commission’’ is replaced with the word ‘‘Commission.’’ No substantive change is intended by these corrections. 25 CFR Part 533—Approval of Management Contracts This document revises 25 CFR 533.2 to remove a reference to 25 CFR part 539 (which no longer exists) and replaces it with a reference to 25 CFR part 583. The document also amends 25 CFR 533.3, revising paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) to make minor grammatical changes. In paragraph (a)(1), the word ‘‘and’’ is added to the end of the sentence; and in paragraph (a)(2), the word ‘‘and’’ is removed and replaced with a period. The document also revises 25 CFR 533.6(b)(3) to make a minor grammatical change, replacing ‘‘this’’ with ‘‘the.’’ 25 CFR Part 535—Post-Approval Procedures This document revises 25 CFR 535.1(d)(2) to make a minor grammatical change. In paragraph (d)(2), a semicolon at the end of the paragraph is replaced with a period. This document also revises 25 CFR 535.1(d)(3) by removing references to ‘‘part 539’’ (which no longer exists) and replacing it with references to ‘‘part 583.’’ This document also revises 25 CFR 535.3 to remove a reference to ‘‘part 577’’ and to replace it with a reference to ‘‘parts 584 or 585.’’ A minor grammatical change is also made to the second sentence of § 535.3, replacing the word ‘‘void’’ with ‘‘voiding.’’ No substantive change is intended by this correction. 25 CFR Part 556—Background Investigations of Primary Management Officials and Key Employees This document revises 25 CFR 556.2(a) to make a minor grammatical change by adding a comma after the word ‘‘criminal.’’ This document also revises 25 CFR 556.5(a)(3) by adding a comma after the word ‘‘habits.’’ Finally, this document revises 25 CFR 556.8 by removing the word ‘‘the’’ before PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 ‘‘February’’ and adding a comma after ‘‘2013.’’ 25 CFR Part 559—Facility License Notification and Submissions This document revises 25 CFR 559.1(a) by changing ‘‘obtain’’ to ‘‘obtains.’’ This document also revises 25 CFR 559.4 by adding a comma after the word ‘‘standards.’’ Finally, to mirror the language in the regulation, this document revises 25 CFR 559.5 by changing the section title from ‘‘Does a tribe need to’’ to ‘‘Must a tribe.’’ 25 CFR Part 571—Monitoring and Investigations This document revises the second sentence of 25 CFR 571.3 by replacing the language ‘‘under part 577 of this chapter is addressed in § 577.8’’ with ‘‘is addressed in § 584.9.’’ This change is required because part 577 no longer exists and was replaced by the language found in 25 CFR part 584. The document revises 25 CFR 571.4 by replacing ‘‘NIGC’’ with ‘‘the Commission.’’ This change is intended to create uniformity in the agency’s regulations. Additionally, 25 CFR 571.4 is revised to add ‘‘or resolution’’ after the word ‘‘ordinance.’’ Finally, this document revises 25 CFR 571.11 by removing a reference to a nonexistent ‘‘part 577’’ and replacing it with ‘‘part 584.’’ 25 CFR Part 573—Compliance and Enforcement This document revises 25 CFR 573.1 by making a minor grammatical change. Specifically, ‘‘notice’’ is now changed to ‘‘notices.’’ Section 573.2(a) is revised by removing the word ‘‘respondent’’ from the regulation because the regulation does not involve official agency action, and therefore no ‘‘respondent’’ exists. No substantive change occurs as a result of this revision. In addition, 25 CFR 573.4 is amended to revise paragraphs (a)(1)(ii), (a)(5), (a)(10), and (c)(3). Paragraph (a)(1)(ii) is revised by replacing ‘‘provides’’ with ‘‘is served with.’’ A minor grammatical change is made to paragraph (a)(5), removing the phrase ‘‘having been,’’ as this change helps make the regulation easier to read. A minor grammatical change is also made to paragraph (a)(10), replacing ‘‘Indian Gaming Regulatory Act’’ with ‘‘the Act.’’ Paragraph (a)(10) is also revised to replace references to ‘‘§ 558.2’’ with ‘‘§ 556.5,’’ and ‘‘§ 558.5’’ with ‘‘§ 558.4.’’ Finally, paragraph (c)(3) is revised to replace a reference to ‘‘subchapter H,’’ with a reference to ‘‘parts 584 or 585’’ for clarity.

The Commission, as an independent regulatory agency, is exempt from compliance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, 2 U.S.C. 1502(1); 2 U.S.C. 658(1). Gambling, Indians-lands, Indianstribal government, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. 25 CFR Part 580—Rules of General Application in Appeal Proceedings Before the Commission Civil Justice Reform This document revises 25 CFR 580.6 by making a minor grammatical change, replacing ‘‘in’’ with ‘‘from.’’ This document also revises 25 CFR 580.12 by replacing ‘‘NIGC’’ with ‘‘Commission’’ to create uniformity in the agency’s regulations. IV. Certain Findings Under the Administrative Procedure Act, a notice of proposed rulemaking is not required when an agency, for good cause, finds that notice and public comments are impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. Because the revisions here are technical in nature and intended solely to update the Commission’s current mailing address, to correct outdated references, and to correct minor grammatical errors, the Commission is publishing a technical amendment. V. Regulatory Matters Regulatory Flexibility Act This rule will not have a significant economic effect on a substantial number of small entities as defined by the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. Indian tribes are not considered to be small entities for purposes of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Various National Indian Gaming Commission Regulations

AGENCY: National Indian Gaming Commission, Interior.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC or Commission) 
makes corrections to various regulations previously issued. The 
Commission recently moved its headquarters resulting in the need to 
update the Commission's mailing address. Additionally, the current 
regulations contain outdated references to previous regulations that no 
longer exist. The amendments also correct various minor grammatical 
errors.

DATES: Effective June 22, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: NIGC Attn: Maria Getoff, Senior 
Attorney, C/O Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW., Mail Stop 
#1621, Washington, DC 20240, or by telephone at 202-632-7003.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA or the Act), Public Law 100-
497, 25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq., was signed into law on October 17, 1988. 
The Act established the Commission and set out a comprehensive 
framework for the regulation of gaming on Indian lands. The purposes of 
the Act include: Providing a statutory basis for the operation of 
gaming by Indian tribes as a means of promoting tribal economic 
development, self-sufficiency, and strong tribal governments; ensuring 
that the Indian tribe is the primary beneficiary of the gaming 
operation; and declaring that the establishment of independent federal 
regulatory authority for gaming on Indian lands, the establishment of 
federal standards for gaming on Indian lands, and the establishment of 
a National Indian Gaming Commission are necessary to meet congressional 
concerns regarding gaming and to protect such gaming as a means of 
generating tribal revenue. 25 U.S.C. 2702.

II. Previous Rulemaking Activity

    On August 9, 2012, the Commission published a final rule amending 
25 CFR part 573 (Compliance and Enforcement) to include a graduated 
pre-enforcement process through which a tribe may come into voluntary 
compliance. 77 FR 47517, Aug. 9, 2012. This document updates references 
in 25 CFR part 514 that are no longer accurate due to those amendments.
    On September 25, 2012, the Commission published a final rule 
consolidating all appeal proceedings before the Commission into a 
(then) new subchapter H (Appeal Proceedings Before the Commission), 
thereby removing former parts 524, 539, and 577. 77 FR 58941, Sept. 25, 
2012. This document updates 25 CFR parts 513, 514, 522, 533, 535, 571, 
573, and 575 to remove references to those parts no longer in 
existence.
    On January 25, 2013, the Commission published a final rule amending 
25 CFR

[[Page 31992]]

parts 556 and 558 (Background investigations and Gaming Licenses for 
Key Employees and Primary Management Officials) to streamline certain 
submissions to the Commission and to ensure that certain tribal 
notifications comply with the Act. 78 FR 5276, Jan 25. 2013. This 
document updates 25 CFR part 573 to reflect the amendments to those 
parts.
    In June of 2014, the Commission relocated its headquarters. This 
document updates the mailing address contained within 25 CFR parts 514 
and 516. The Commission also identified minor grammatical errors in 
certain other regulations and now corrects those errors.

III. Corrections

25 CFR Part 502--Definitions of This Chapter

    This document revises the definition of ``Chairman'' in 25 CFR 
502.1 to include the word ``Chair.'' This reflects the gender-neutral 
term that occurs elsewhere in the Commission's regulations. No 
substantive change is intended with this correction.

25 CFR Part 513--Debt Collection

    This document revises 25 CFR 513.4(b) and 513.32(a) to remove 
references to the appeal procedures formerly found at 25 CFR part 577 
(which no longer exists). It now references the appeal procedure at 25 
CFR parts 580-585. This document also corrects a grammatical error in 
Sec.  513.32(a): In the third sentence, the first ``matters'' is 
corrected to the singular ``matter,'' while the second ``matters'' 
remains plural.

25 CFR Part 514--Fees

    This document revises 25 CFR 514.8 and 514.17(c) to reflect the 
Commission's new mailing address. This document also amends 25 CFR 
514.10 to revise paragraphs (a) and (b) to correct a reference from 
``25 CFR 573.6(a)(2)'' to ``25 CFR 573.4(a)(2).''

25 CFR Part 516--Testimony of Current and Former Commissioners and NIGC 
Employees; Response to Subpoenas

    The document revises 25 CFR 516.4(b) to reflect the Commission's 
new mailing address.

25 CFR Part 522--Submission of Gaming Ordinance or Resolution

    This document revises 25 CFR 522.5 and 522.7(a), (b) to remove 
references to 25 CFR part 524 (which no longer exists) and replaces 
them with references to 25 CFR part 582. This document also revises 25 
CFR 522.10(c) and (f) to make minor grammatical changes. In paragraph 
(c), ``Tribe'' is changed to ``tribe''; in paragraph (f), a comma is 
placed after ``limits.''

25 CFR Part 531--Content of Management Contracts

    This document amends 25 CFR 531.1 to revise paragraphs (b)(4), 
(b)(6), and (b)(16) by making minor grammatical changes and by 
clarifying certain requirements. In paragraph (b)(4), a comma is placed 
after ``training''; in paragraph (b)(6), the word ``gaming'' is added 
before ``operation's''; and in paragraph (b)(16), the phrase ``National 
Indian Gaming Commission'' is replaced with the word ``Commission.'' No 
substantive change is intended by these corrections.

25 CFR Part 533--Approval of Management Contracts

    This document revises 25 CFR 533.2 to remove a reference to 25 CFR 
part 539 (which no longer exists) and replaces it with a reference to 
25 CFR part 583. The document also amends 25 CFR 533.3, revising 
paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) to make minor grammatical changes. In 
paragraph (a)(1), the word ``and'' is added to the end of the sentence; 
and in paragraph (a)(2), the word ``and'' is removed and replaced with 
a period. The document also revises 25 CFR 533.6(b)(3) to make a minor 
grammatical change, replacing ``this'' with ``the.''

25 CFR Part 535--Post-Approval Procedures

    This document revises 25 CFR 535.1(d)(2) to make a minor 
grammatical change. In paragraph (d)(2), a semicolon at the end of the 
paragraph is replaced with a period. This document also revises 25 CFR 
535.1(d)(3) by removing references to ``part 539'' (which no longer 
exists) and replacing it with references to ``part 583.'' This document 
also revises 25 CFR 535.3 to remove a reference to ``part 577'' and to 
replace it with a reference to ``parts 584 or 585.'' A minor 
grammatical change is also made to the second sentence of Sec.  535.3, 
replacing the word ``void'' with ``voiding.'' No substantive change is 
intended by this correction.

25 CFR Part 556--Background Investigations of Primary Management 
Officials and Key Employees

    This document revises 25 CFR 556.2(a) to make a minor grammatical 
change by adding a comma after the word ``criminal.'' This document 
also revises 25 CFR 556.5(a)(3) by adding a comma after the word 
``habits.'' Finally, this document revises 25 CFR 556.8 by removing the 
word ``the'' before ``February'' and adding a comma after ``2013.''

25 CFR Part 559--Facility License Notification and Submissions

    This document revises 25 CFR 559.1(a) by changing ``obtain'' to 
``obtains.'' This document also revises 25 CFR 559.4 by adding a comma 
after the word ``standards.'' Finally, to mirror the language in the 
regulation, this document revises 25 CFR 559.5 by changing the section 
title from ``Does a tribe need to'' to ``Must a tribe.''

25 CFR Part 571--Monitoring and Investigations

    This document revises the second sentence of 25 CFR 571.3 by 
replacing the language ``under part 577 of this chapter is addressed in 
Sec.  577.8'' with ``is addressed in Sec.  584.9.'' This change is 
required because part 577 no longer exists and was replaced by the 
language found in 25 CFR part 584. The document revises 25 CFR 571.4 by 
replacing ``NIGC'' with ``the Commission.'' This change is intended to 
create uniformity in the agency's regulations. Additionally, 25 CFR 
571.4 is revised to add ``or resolution'' after the word ``ordinance.'' 
Finally, this document revises 25 CFR 571.11 by removing a reference to 
a nonexistent ``part 577'' and replacing it with ``part 584.''

25 CFR Part 573--Compliance and Enforcement

    This document revises 25 CFR 573.1 by making a minor grammatical 
change. Specifically, ``notice'' is now changed to ``notices.'' Section 
573.2(a) is revised by removing the word ``respondent'' from the 
regulation because the regulation does not involve official agency 
action, and therefore no ``respondent'' exists. No substantive change 
occurs as a result of this revision. In addition, 25 CFR 573.4 is 
amended to revise paragraphs (a)(1)(ii), (a)(5), (a)(10), and (c)(3). 
Paragraph (a)(1)(ii) is revised by replacing ``provides'' with ``is 
served with.'' A minor grammatical change is made to paragraph (a)(5), 
removing the phrase ``having been,'' as this change helps make the 
regulation easier to read. A minor grammatical change is also made to 
paragraph (a)(10), replacing ``Indian Gaming Regulatory Act'' with 
``the Act.'' Paragraph (a)(10) is also revised to replace references to 
``Sec.  558.2'' with ``Sec.  556.5,'' and ``Sec.  558.5'' with ``Sec.  
558.4.'' Finally, paragraph (c)(3) is revised to replace a reference to 
``subchapter H,'' with a reference to ``parts 584 or 585'' for clarity.

[[Page 31993]]

25 CFR Part 575--Civil Fines

    This document amends 25 CFR 575.6 to revise paragraphs (a)(1) and 
(b) to replace references to ``part 577'' (which no longer exists) with 
references to ``parts 584 or 585.'' This document also revises 25 CFR 
575.9 to replace references to ``part 577'' (which no longer exists) 
with references to ``parts 584 or 585.'' Section 575.9 is also revised 
by renumbering it to ``575.7'' due to a previous numbering error in the 
regulations.

25 CFR Part 580--Rules of General Application in Appeal Proceedings 
Before the Commission

    This document revises 25 CFR 580.6 by making a minor grammatical 
change, replacing ``in'' with ``from.'' This document also revises 25 
CFR 580.12 by replacing ``NIGC'' with ``Commission'' to create 
uniformity in the agency's regulations.

IV. Certain Findings

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act, a notice of proposed 
rulemaking is not required when an agency, for good cause, finds that 
notice and public comments are impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest. Because the revisions here are technical in nature 
and intended solely to update the Commission's current mailing address, 
to correct outdated references, and to correct minor grammatical 
errors, the Commission is publishing a technical amendment.

V. Regulatory Matters

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This rule will not have a significant economic effect on a 
substantial number of small entities as defined by the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. Indian tribes are not considered 
to be small entities for purposes of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. This rule does not have 
an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more. This rule will 
not cause a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, individual 
industries, federal, state, or local government agencies or geographic 
regions, and does not have a significant adverse effect on competition, 
employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of 
U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Commission, as an independent regulatory agency, is exempt from 
compliance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, 2 U.S.C. 1502(1); 2 
U.S.C. 658(1).

Takings

    In accordance with Executive Order 12630, the Commission determined 
this proposed rule does not have significant takings implications. A 
takings implication assessment is not required.

Civil Justice Reform

    In accordance with Executive Order 12988, the Commission determined 
that the rule does not unduly burden the judicial system and meets the 
requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Executive Order.

National Environmental Policy Act

    The Commission has determined that this rule does not constitute a 
major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human 
environment and that a detailed statement is not required pursuant to 
the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The information collection requirements contained in these rules 
were previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget as 
required by the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq., and 
assigned the following OMB control numbers with the applicable 
expiration dates: (i) 3141-0001, expires on October 31, 2016; (ii) 
3141-0003, expires on October 31, 2016; (iii) 3141-0004, expires on 
October 31, 2015; (iv) 3141-0007, expires on November 30, 2015; and (v) 
3141-0012, expires on October 31, 2015.
