Abstract: Under the Indian Reorganization Act, Indian tribes have the right to organize and adopt constitutions, bylaws, and any amendments thereto, and ratify charters of incorporation, through elections called by the Secretary of the Interior, according to rules prescribed by the Secretary. See 25 U.S.C. 476, 477, 503. The Secretary’s rules for conducting these elections, known as ‘‘Secretarial elections,’’ and approving the results are at 25 CFR 81. In most cases, the tribe requests a Secretarial election; however, an individual voting member of a tribe may also request a Secretarial election by petition. These rules also establish the procedures for an individual to petition for a Secretarial election. BIA requires the tribe to submit a formal request for Secretarial election, including: A tribal resolution; the document or language to be voted on in the election; a list of all tribal members who are age 18 or older in the next 120 days (when the election will occur), including their last known addresses, E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1 58282 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 223 / Monday, November 19, 2018 / Notices voting districts (if any), and dates of birth, in an electronically sortable format. While much of the information the tribe prepares for a Secretarial election (e.g., list of members eligible to vote) would be required if the tribe instead conducted its own tribal election, the Secretary’s rules establish specifics on what a tribal request or petition for election must contain. These specifics are necessary to ensure the integrity of Secretarial elections and allow Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and tribal personnel the ability to consistently administer elections.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DAF, Nellis AFB, has filed an application with the Department of the Interior to extend the duration of PLO No. 7419 for an additional 20-year term. The PLO withdrew approximately 2,252 acres of public lands from settlement, sale, location or entry under the general land laws, including the United States mining laws, but not from leasing under the mineral leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights. The purpose of the withdrawal is for military use at Nellis AFB to provide safety buffers from potentially hazardous areas, to protect populated areas, and to facilitate DAF SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 compliance with the Department of Defense (DOD) Directive No. 6055.09E regarding ammunition and explosives safety standards. The safety buffer zone includes security patrol roads and a security checkpoint. PLO No. 7419 will expire on December 8, 2019, unless it is extended. As required by Section 204(b)(1) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), 43 U.S.C. 1714(b)(1), and BLM regulations at 43 CFR part 2300, the BLM is publishing Notice of the DAF, Nellis AFB Application. This Notice amends the legal land description and acreage in PLO No. 7419, as noted on an amended plat accepted by the Nevada BLM Chief, Cadastral Survey on October 17, 2016. The lands withdrawn by PLO No. 7419 are described as follows: Mount Diablo Meridian, Nevada T. 19 S., R. 62 E., Sec. 25, lots 1 and 3, and S1⁄2NE1⁄4; Sec. 35, those portions of the SW1⁄4NW1⁄4, W1⁄2SE1⁄4NW1⁄4, and W1⁄2NW1⁄4SE1⁄4 as conveyed to the United States of America by Warranty Deed recorded October 19, 1999 in Book No. 991019, Instrument No. 00259, as Document No. 19991019.00259 in Clark County, Nevada. T. 19 S., R. 63 E., Sec. 27, NE1⁄4SE1⁄4 and W1⁄2SE1⁄4; Sec. 34, NE1⁄4. T. 20 S., R. 62 E., Sec. 1, lots 9 and 10, and lots 13 thru 20; Sec. 2, SE1⁄4SW1⁄4; Sec. 10, E1⁄2SE1⁄4; Sec. 11, lots 1 thru 8, E1⁄2NW1⁄4 and SW1⁄4; Sec. 12, lots 2 thru 7, and lots 12 and 13; Sec. 15, NW1⁄4NE1⁄4 and W1⁄2SW1⁄4NE1⁄4. T. 20 S., R. 63 E., unsurveyed, Sec. 3, SE1⁄4. The areas described contain approximately 2,125.90 acres in Clark County. The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, or cooperative agreement would not apply or provide adequate protection for safety buffers from potentially hazardous areas, protect populated areas, or comply with DOD Directive No. 6055.09E regarding ammunition and explosive safety standards. No water rights would be required to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal extension. There are no suitable alternative sites since the lands described are contained within Nellis AFB. For a period until February 19, 2019, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the withdrawal extension application may present their views in writing to the BLM District Manager at the address in the E:\FR\FM\19NON1.SGM 19NON1
