Bureau of Indian Affairs Extends Rights-of-Way Final Rule by 90 Days


WASHINGTON – Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs Kevin K. Washburn on this past Monday announced that the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs has extended the effective date of its rights-of-way final rule by 90 days. The extension provides grantees, potential grantees, landowners and BIA personnel with more time to review the final rule and to adequately prepare for its implementation. The updated rule streamlines the process for obtaining the Bureau’s approval to ensure consistency with recently updated leasing regulations, increases the flexibility in compensation and valuations, and supports landowner decisions regarding the use of their land.
