SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Statutory Background

    The Tribal Law and Order Act (TLOA) was enacted on July 29, 2010, 
as Title II of Public Law 111-211. The purpose of TLOA is to help the 
Federal Government and tribal governments better address the unique 
public safety challenges that confront tribal communities. Section 
221(b) of the new law, now codified at 18 U.S.C. 1162(d), permits an 
Indian tribe with Indian country subject to State criminal jurisdiction 
under Public Law 280, Pub. L. 83-280, 67 Stat. 588 (1953), to request 
that the United States accept concurrent jurisdiction to prosecute 
violations of the General Crimes Act (18 U.S.C. 1152) and the Major 
Crimes Act (18 U.S.C. 1153) within that tribe's Indian country.

Department of Justice Regulation Implementing 18 U.S.C. 1162(d)

    On December 6, 2011, the Department published final regulations 
that established the framework and procedures for a mandatory Public 
Law 280 tribe to request the assumption of concurrent Federal criminal 
jurisdiction within the Indian country of the tribe that is subject to 
Public Law 280. 76 FR 76037 (Dec. 6, 2011), codified at 28 CFR 50.25. 
Among other provisions, the regulations provide that, upon acceptance 
of a tribal request, the Office of Tribal Justice shall publish notice 
of the consent in the Federal Register.

Request by the Hoopa Valley Tribe

    By a request dated January 17, 2012, the Hoopa Valley Tribe, 
located in the State of California, requested that the United States 
assume concurrent Federal jurisdiction to prosecute violations of the 
General Crimes Act and the Major Crimes Act within the Indian country 
of the tribe. This would allow the United States to assume concurrent 
criminal jurisdiction over offenses within the Indian country of the 
tribe without eliminating or affecting the State's existing criminal 
jurisdiction.
    The Department of Justice granted the tribe's request on November 
18, 2016. In deciding to grant the tribe's request, the Department 
followed the procedures described in the Department's final notice on 
Assumption of Concurrent Federal Criminal Jurisdiction in Certain Areas
