The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA), Department of the Interior (the Department), are revising their regulations dealing with the probate of Indian trust estates to reflect an organizational change. The Department is consolidating the probate adjudication functions previously handled by attorney decision makers in BIA and by administrative law judges and Indian probate judges in OHA into a new Probate Hearings Division within OHA. As a result, this rule transfers various regulatory provisions dealing with attorney decision makers from BIA's regulations to OHA's.
