Nuclear Regulatory Commission: Revision of Fee Schedules; Fee Recovery for FY 2008
GAO-08-910R: Jun 23, 2008
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) new rule on revision of fee schedule and fee recovery for FY 2008. GAO found that (1) the final rule amends the licensing, inspection, and annual fees that NRC charges its applicants and licensees to help NRC, which is necessary to implement the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 that requires the NRC to recover 90 percent of its budget authority in each fiscal year; and (2) NRC complied with the applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
