This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The Commission is revising its Schedule of Regulatory Fees in order to recover an amount of $185,754,000 in regulatory fees that Congress has required it to collect for Fiscal Year 2000. This summary of the FCC's FY 2000 Regulatory Fees decision will be followed by publication in the Federal Register of the full text at a later date. The dates for collecting regulatory fees will be September 11, 2000 through September 20, 2000.
Effective September 10, 2000.Start Further Info

The Communications Act of 1934 (“Act”), as amended, provides for the annual assessment and collection of regulatory fees. For Fiscal Year 2000, changes to the Schedule of Regulatory Fees will be made per section 9(b)(2) of the Act. These revisions will further the National Performance Review goals of reinventing Government by requiring beneficiaries of Commission services to pay for such services.
As mandated by Congress, the FY 2000 Regulatory Fees increased by $13,231,000, or approximately 7.67 percent, over the amount Congress required the Commission to collect in FY 1999. We are, therefore, revising the Schedule of Regulatory Fees to reflect this additional amount that was mandated by Congress. For FY 2000, as in FY 1999, the revenue requirements for each category were adjusted on a proportional basis, consistent with Section 9(b)(2) of the Act, to obtain a sum total of the amount Congress required the Commission to collect. As in FY 1999, none of the fee increases in FY 2000 exceed 25 percent. In brief, the adopted FY 2000 Regulatory Fee schedule will assess a fee on Comsat's INTELSAT facilities; incorporate the use of a new form which would change the basis for computing the fee for Interstate Telephone Service Providers; and continue to assess a CMRS messaging fee for SMR systems with less than 10 MHz bandwidth.Start Signature
