Revision of Fee Schedules; Fee Recovery for FY 2007
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending the licensing, inspection, and annual fees charged to its applicants and licensees. The amendments are necessary to implement the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA-90), as amended, which requires that the NRC recover approximately 90 percent of its budget authority in fiscal year (FY) 2007, less the amounts appropriated from the Nuclear Waste Fund (NWF) and for Waste Incidental to Reprocessing (WIR) activities and generic homeland security activities. The required fee recovery amount for the FY 2007 budget is approximately $669.2 million. After accounting for carryover and billing adjustments, the net amount to be recovered is approximately $670.5 million.
