Nuclear Regulatory Commission: Revision of Fee Schedules; Fee Recovery for FY 2005
GAO-05-783R: Jun 15, 2005
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) new rule on the revision of fee schedules for fee recovery for FY 2005. GAO found that (1) the rule amends the licensing, inspection, and annual fees charged to NRC's applicants and licensees to require that the NRC recover approximately 90 percent of its budget authority in fiscal year 2005, less the amounts appropriated from the Nuclear Waste Fund; and (2) with the exception of the 60-day delay in the rule's effective date, NRC complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
