OGC-96-9: Published: Apr 26, 1996. Publicly Released: Apr 26, 1996.
Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) new rule on fee schedules. GAO found that: (1) the rule would allow NRC to recover 100 percent of its budget authority, less amounts appropriated from the Nuclear Waste Fund, from its applicants and licensees; and (2) NRC followed applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
