The final rule amends the Commission's licensing, inspection, and annual fees charged to NRC licensees and applicants for an NRC license. The rulemaking is necessary to recover, through the assessment of fees, approximately 90 percent of the NRC's budget authority for fiscal year 2008, less the amounts appropriated from the Nuclear Waste Fund, and for Waste Incidental to Reprocessing and generic homeland security activities as required by the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA) of 1990, as amended. Based on the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008 (Pub. L. 110-161), the NRCs required fee recovery amount for the FY 2008 budget is approximately $779.1 million. After accounting for carryover and billing adjustments, the total amount to be billed as fees is $760.7 million. The OBRA-90, as amended, requires that the fees for FY 2008 be collected by September 30, 2008.
