[[Page 49121]]

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is confirming the interim 
final rule published and effective on March 3, 2013, addressing the 
addition of two Indian tribes to the list of tribes with Courts of 
Indian Offenses (also known as CFR Courts), and deletion of five tribes 
from those under the jurisdiction of CFR Courts. The March 3, 2013, 
publication stated that the BIA would review comments on the interim 
final rule and either confirm the rule or initiate a proposed 
rulemaking. BIA did not receive any comments, and therefore confirms 
the rule without change.

DATES: Effective August 13, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Appel, Acting Director, 
Office of Regulatory Affairs & Collaborative Action, (202) 273-4680;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule revises a section of 25 CFR part 
11 to add the following Indian tribes to the list of tribes with 
established Courts of Indian Offenses (also known as CFR Courts): The 
Seneca-Cayuga Tribe and the Skull Valley Band of Goshute Indians. 
Adding these tribes will allow for the administration of justice until 
the added tribes put into effect a law-and-order code that establishes 
a court system that meets regulatory requirements or until the tribe 
adopts a legal code and establishes a judicial system in accordance 
with its constitution and bylaws or other governing documents.
    The rule also revises a section of 25 CFR 11.100(c) to remove five 
tribes from the list of those with established CFR Courts. The tribes 
removed from the list are the Seminole Nation, the Miami Tribe, the 
Wyandotte Tribe, the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, and the Quapaw Tribe 
of Indians.
    On March 3, 2013, we published an interim final rule with a request 
for comment at 78 FR 14017. We stated in the interim final rule that we 
would review any comments received and, by a future publication, 
address any comments received and either confirm the interim final rule 
with or without change or initiate a proposed rulemaking. We received 
no comments on the interim final rule.
    Therefore, the interim rule published March 3, 2013, at 78 FR 
14017, is confirmed as final without change.

    Dated: August 1, 2013.
Kevin K. Washburn,
Assistant Secretary--Indian Affairs.
