SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BIA published a proposed rule on land 
acquisitions in Alaska on May 1, 2014 (79 FR 24648). This proposed rule 
would delete a provision in the Department of the Interior's land-into-
trust regulations that excludes from the scope of the regulations, with 
one exception, land acquisitions in trust in the State of Alaska. Since 
publication of the proposed rule, BIA has received several requests to 
extend the comment period. Accordingly, to provide additional time for 
review and comment on the proposed rule, BIA is extending its original 
60-day comment period by an additional 30 days.

    Dated: June 24, 2014.
Kevin K. Washburn,
Assistant Secretary--Indian Affairs.
