Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 44709 [E8-17550]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 148 / Thursday, July 31, 2008 / Notices b. The alternative computation is: (.5) ($55,903) + (.5) (.000637) ($719,088) = $28,181. c. The fee is the lesser of a or b; in this case $28,181. As noted above, the alternative calculation based on contracts traded is not applicable to NFA because it is not a DCM and has no contracts traded. The Commission’s average annual cost for conducting oversight review of the NFA rule enforcement program during fiscal years 2005 through 2007 was $450,419 (one-third of $1,351,256). The fee to be paid by the NFA for the current fiscal year is $450,419. Payment Method The Debt Collection Improvement Act (DCIA) requires deposits of fees owed to the government by electronic transfer of funds (See 31 U.S.C. 3720). For information about electronic payments, please contact Angela Clark at (202) 418–5178 or aclark@cftc.gov, or see the CFTC Web site at http://www.cftc.gov, specifically, http://www.cftc.gov/cftc/ cftcelectronicpayments.htm. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., requires agencies to consider the impact of rules on small business. The fees implemented in this release affect contract markets and registered futures associations. The Commission has previously determined that contract markets and registered futures associations are not ‘‘small entities’’ for purposes of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Accordingly, the Acting Chairman, on behalf of the Commission, certifies pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that the fees implemented here will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Issued in Washington, DC, on July 24, 2008, by the Commission. David Stawick, Secretary of the Commission. [FR Doc.
