SUMMARY: This document makes a technical correction to the acreage 
estimate and the land description contained in the notice published on 
Wednesday, February 5, 2014, 79 FR 6917. The notice concerns the final 
agency determination to acquire approximately 626.55 acres of land in 
trust for the Mechoopda Indian Tribe of Chico Rancheria of California

NW., Washington, DC 20240; Telephone (202) 219-4066.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 24, 2014, the Assistant 
Secretary--Indian Affairs issued a final agency determination to 
acquire approximately 626.55 acres of land in trust for the Mechoopda 
Indian Tribe of Chico Rancheria of California (Tribe) for gaming and 
other purposes. Notice of the January 24, 2014 final agency 
determination was published in the Federal Register on February 5, 
2014. 79 FR 6917. The Federal Register Notice published on February 5, 
2014, did not reflect an estimate that had been prepared by the Bureau 
of Land Management using the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) 
model. This technical correction does not change the footprint of the 
acquisition published on February 5, 2014, it merely provides a more 
accurate estimate of the total acreage within the boundaries of the 
January 24, 2014 final agency determination. The Federal Register 
Notice published on February 5, 2014, is now clarified to reflect the 
GIS model estimate of approximately 631 acres.
    Furthermore, the land description in the February 5, 2014, notice 
is correct, but has been amended by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to 
eliminate unnecessary or duplicative information. On pages 6917 and 
6918 of the February 5, 2014, Federal Register, the land description is 
amended to read as follows:
