Indian Issues: BIA’s Efforts to Impose Time Frames and Collect Better Data Should Improve the Processing of Land in Trust Applications
Robin M. Nazzaro (au)
In 1980, the U.S. Dept. of the Interior established regulations to provide a uniform approach for taking land in trust. Trust status means the gov’t. holds title to the land in trust for tribes & individual Indians. Trust land is exempt from state & local taxes. Primary responsibility for processing, reviewing, & deciding on applications to take land in trust is delegated to the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). The author studied BIA’s processing of land in trust applications (LTA) to determine the extent to which: (1) BIA followed its regulations; (2) applications were processed in a timely manner; & (3) identified any concerns raised by state & local government’s about LTA. Also provides info. on problems with BIA’s data on the processing of LTA. Charts & tables.
