Revision of Fee Schedules; Fee Recovery for FY 2011

Docket ID: NRC-2011-0016
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)
The final rule amends the Commission's licensing, inspection, and annual fees charged to its applicants and licensees. The amendments 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) 2011, less the amounts appropriated from the Nuclear Waste Fund, and for Waste Incidental to Reprocessing, generic homeland security activities, and scholarships and fellowships. Based on the FY 2011 NRC Budget sent to Congress, the NRC's required fee recovery amount for the FY 2011 budget is approximately $915.8 million. After accounting for carryover and billing adjustments, the total amount to be recovered through fees is approximately $916.2 million. The OBRA-90, as amended, requires that the fees for FY 2011 be collected by September 30, 2011.
