CFR Courts

On Tuesday, July 23, 2019, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) published a proposed rule in the Federal Register which would revise one section of the regulations to provide that the current list of areas in Indian Country with Courts of Indian Offenses (also known as CFR Courts) be published and updates made in the Federal Register and on the BIA website, instead of requiring a rulemaking each time a court is added or deleted. Allowing for publication in the Federal Register, in lieu of a rulemaking, will better keep Tribal members and the public updated on the current status of the Courts of Indian Offenses. The proposed rule is available here. On January 7, 2020 the Final Rule published in the Federal Register, and a copy is available here
