Abstract: The BIA is seeking to renew the information collection conducted under 25 CFR 13, Tribal Reassumption of Jurisdiction over Child Custody Proceedings, which prescribes procedures by which a federally recognized Tribe that occupies Tribal lands over which a State asserts any jurisdiction pursuant to Federal law may reassume jurisdiction over Indian child proceedings as authorized by the Indian Child Welfare Act, Public Law 95–608, 92 Stat. 3069, 25 U.S.C. 1918. The collection of information will ensure that the provisions of Public Law 95–608 are met. Any federally recognized Tribe that became subject to State jurisdiction pursuant to the provisions of the Act of August 15, 1953 (67 Stat. 588), as amended by title IV of the Act of April 11, 1968 (82 Stat. 73,78), or pursuant to any other Federal law, may reassume jurisdiction over child custody proceedings. The collection of information provides data that will be used in considering the petition and feasibility of the plan of the Tribe for reassumption of jurisdiction over Indian child custody proceedings. We collect the following information: Full name, address, and telephone number of petitioning Tribe or Tribes; a Tribal resolution; estimated total number of members in the petitioning Tribe of Tribes with an explanation of how the number was estimated; current criteria for Tribal membership; citation to provision in Tribal constitution authorizing the Tribal governing body to exercise jurisdiction over Indian child custody matters; description of Tribal court; copy of any Tribal ordinances or Tribal court rules establishing procedures or rules for exercise of jurisdiction over child custody matters; VerDate Sep<11>2014 00:30 Sep 04, 2021 Jkt 253001 and all other information required by 25 CFR 13.11.

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. The 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, 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 the BIA PO 00000 Frm 00143 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 U:\07SEN1.SGM and Tribal personnel the ability to consistently administer elections.

During a review of the INTERIOR/DOI–03 system of records notice, DOI determined that employee public financial disclosure reports, financial interest statements, conflict of interest decisions, and other related records are covered under two Government-wide system of records notices published by the Office of Government Ethics (OGE). This rescindment will eliminate an unnecessary duplicate notice and promote the overall streamlining and management of DOI Privacy Act systems of records.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a, DOI is rescinding the INTERIOR/DOI–03, Financial Interest Statements and Ethics PO 00000 Frm 00144 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 U:\07SEN1.SGM 50155 Counselor Decisions, system of records notice and removing it from its inventory. The DOI Ethics Office maintains records on employee public financial disclosure reports, financial interest statements, conflict of interest decisions, and other records to administer the DOI Ethics Program and ensure compliance with ethics laws and regulations. During a review of the INTERIOR/DOI–03 notice, DOI determined that these records are covered under two Government-wide system of records notices published by OGE: OGE/GOVT–1, Executive Branch Personnel Public Financial Disclosure Reports and Other Name-Retrieved Ethics Program Records, 84 FR 47303 (September 9, 2019); and OGE/GOVT–2, Executive Branch Confidential Financial Disclosure Reports, 84 FR 47301 (September 9, 2019). A Government-wide system of records is a system of records where one agency has regulatory authority over the records in the custody of multiple agencies and that agency has the responsibility for publishing a system of records notice that applies to all of the records regardless of their custodial location. The two OGE government-wide system of records notices apply to the records maintained by the DOI Ethics Program pursuant to ethics laws and regulations. Therefore, DOI is rescinding the INTERIOR/DOI–03, Financial Interest Statements and Ethics Counselor Decisions, system of records notice to eliminate an unnecessary duplicate notice in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget Circular A–108, Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act. Rescinding the INTERIOR/DOI–03, Financial Interest Statements and Ethics Counselor Decisions, system of records notice will have no adverse impacts on individuals as the records are covered by OGE/GOVT–1, Executive Branch Personnel Public Financial Disclosure Reports and Other Name-Retrieved Ethics Program Records, and OGE/ GOVT–2, Executive Branch Confidential Financial Disclosure Reports, which apply to the records regardless of their custodial location. This rescindment will also promote the overall streamlining and management of DOI Privacy Act systems of records.
