Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

In this document, the Commission amends its rules to revise its Schedule of Application Fees per section 8(b)(1) of the Communications Act of 1934. The Commission is required to revise its application fee rates every two years based on changes in the Consumer Price Index. For FY 2014, calculated from October 2009 and October 2013, the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (“CPI-U”) increased 8 percent. The Schedule of Application Fees reflects revised fee rates based on a CPI-U rate increase of 8 percent.

DATES:

Effective June 6, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

1. By this Order, adopted March 24, 2014 and released March 25, 2014, the Commission makes rule changes to part 1 of the Commission's rules, and amends its Schedule of Application Fees, 47 CFR 1.1102 et seq. to adjust its fees for processing applications and other filings. Section 8(a) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Commission to “assess and collect application fees at such rates as the Commission shall establish or at such modified rates as it shall establish pursuant to” section 8(b). Section 8 contains the Schedule of Charges for a broad range of application categories as well as procedures for modifying and collecting these charges. The Commission began assessing such application fees in 1987, and, as required by section 8(b), it began reviewing the fees every two years beginning after October 1, 1991 to make adjustments to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index. As required by section 8(e) of the Act, collected fees are deposited in the general fund of the United States Treasury. As required by the statute and consistent with our prior practice, this Order increases application fees to reflect the net change in the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (“CPI-U”) of 8 percent, calculated from October 2009 to October 2013.[1] The adjustments made to the fee schedule comport with the statutory formula set forth in section 8(b).

2. The Commission will send a copy of this Order in a report to be sent to Congress and the Government Accountability Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).

3. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, that, pursuant to sections 1, 4(i), 4(j), and 8 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 151, 154(i), 154(j), and 158, the rule changes specified herein ARE ADOPTED and the Schedule of Application Fees, 47 CFR 1.1102 et seq., IS AMENDED as set forth in the attached Appendices.

4. It is further ordered that the rule changes and amendment to the Schedule of Application Fees made herein shall become effective 30 days after date of publication in the Federal Register.

1.  Application fees are calculated based upon the process set forth in 47 CFR 1.1115. The increase in the CPI-U between October 2009 (the month used to calculate the last CPI-U adjustment of the Schedule of Application Fees) and October 2013 is 17.369 index points, or 8 percent. However, the actual calculation in fees is based on index points that are averaged over a time period beginning in December 1989. See Bureau of Labor Statistics CPI-U Index, http:/www.bls.gov/​cpi/​cpid1402.pdf (showing a CPI-U Index of 216.177 for October 2009 and 233.546 for October 2013).
