Title: Disposition of Archeological Materials  

This rule would establish definitions, standards, procedures, and guidelines to be followed by Federal agencies to dispose of particular archeological material remains that are in collections recovered during Federal projects and programs under certain Federal statutes. This rule is necessary because, at present, there is no procedure to dispose of material remains that are determined to be of insufficient archaeological interest.
