AGENCY:

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule; update of Federal land use fees.

SUMMARY:

On May 8, 1987, the Commission issued its final rule amending Part 11 of its regulations (Order No. 469, 52 FR 18201( May 14, 1987)). The final rule revised the billing procedures for annual charges for administering Part I of the Federal Power Act, the billing procedures for charges for Federal dam and land use, and the methodology for assessing Federal land use charges.

In accordance with the Commission's regulations, the Commission by its designee, the Executive Director, is updating its schedule of fees for the use of government lands. The yearly update is based on the most recent schedule of fees for the use of linear rights-of-way prepared by the United States Forest Service. Since the next fiscal year will cover the period from October 1, 2000, through September 30, 2001, the fees in Start Printed Page 76917this notice will become effective October 1, 2000. The fees will apply to fiscal year 2001 annual charges for the use of government lands.

The Commission has concluded, with the concurrence of the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of OMB that this rule is not a “major rule” as defined in section 351 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 5 U.S.C 804(2).

EFFECTIVE DATE:

October 1, 2000.
