Minerals Management: Adjustment of Cost Recovery Fees

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This final rule amends the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) 
mineral resources regulations to update some fees that cover the BLM's 
cost of processing certain documents relating to its minerals programs 
and some filing fees for mineral-related documents. These updated fees 
include those for actions such as lease renewals and mineral patent 
adjudications.

DATES: This final rule is effective October 1, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The BLM has specific authority to charge fees for processing 
applications and other documents relating to public lands under Section 
304 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), 43 
U.S.C. 1734. In 2005, the BLM published a final cost recovery rule (70 
FR 58854) establishing or revising certain fees and service charges, 
and establishing the method it would use to adjust those fees and 
service charges on an annual basis.
    At 43 CFR 3000.12(a), the regulations provide that the BLM will 
annually adjust fees established in Subchapter C according to changes 
in the Implicit Price Deflator for Gross Domestic Product (IPD-GDP), 
which is published quarterly by the U.S. Department of Commerce. See 
also 43 CFR 3000.10. This final rule will allow the BLM to update these 
fees and service charges by October 1 of this year, as required by the 
2005 regulation. The fee recalculations are based on a mathematical 
formula. The public had an opportunity to comment on this procedure 
during the comment period on the original cost recovery rule, and this 
new rule simply administers the procedure set forth in those 
regulations. Therefore, the BLM has changed the fees in this final rule 
without providing opportunity for additional notice and comment. The 
Department of the Interior, therefore, for good cause finds under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3) that notice and public comment procedures 
are unnecessary and that the rule may be effective less than 30 days 
after publication.

II. Discussion of Final Rule

    The BLM publishes a fee update rule each year, which becomes 
effective on October 1 of that year. The fee updates are based on the 
change in the IPD-GDP from the 4th Quarter of one calendar year to the 
4th Quarter of the following calendar year. This fee update rule is 
based on the change in the IPD-GDP from the 4th Quarter of 2010 to the 
4th Quarter of 2011, thus reflecting the rate of inflation over four 
calendar quarters.
    The fee is calculated by applying the IPD-GDP to the base value 
from the previous year's rule, also known as the ``existing value.'' 
This calculation results in an updated base value. The updated base 
value is then rounded to the closest multiple of $5, or to the nearest 
cent for fees under $1, to establish the new fee.
    Under this rule, 31 fees will remain the same and 17 fees will 
increase. Seven of the fee increases will amount to $5 each. The 
largest increase, $65, will be applied to the fee for adjudicating a 
mineral patent application containing more than 10 claims, which will 
increase from $2,875 to $2,940. The fee for adjudicating a patent 
application containing 10 or fewer claims will increase by $30--from 
$1,440 to $1,470.
    The calculations that resulted in the new fees are included in the 
table below:

\1\ The Existing Fee was established by the 2011 (Fiscal Year 2012) cost recovery fee update rule published
  September 23, 2011 (76 FR 59058), effective October 1, 2011.
\2\ The Existing Value is the figure from the New Value column in the previous year's rule.
\3\ From 4th Quarter 2010 to 4th Quarter 2011, the IPD-GDP increased by 2.18 percent. The value in the IPD-GDP
  Increase column is 2.18 percent of the Existing Value.
\4\ The sum of the Existing Value and the IPD-GDP Increase is the New Value.
\5\ The New Fee for Fiscal Year 2013 is the New Value rounded to the nearest $5 for values equal to or greater
  than $1, or to the nearest penny for values under $1.
\6\ Section 365 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109-58) directed in subsection (i) that ``the
  Secretary shall not implement a rulemaking that would enable an increase in fees to recover additional costs
  related to processing drilling-related permit applications and use authorizations.'' In the 2005 cost recovery
  rule, the BLM interpreted this prohibition to apply to geophysical exploration permits. 70 FR 58854-58855.
  While the $25 fees for geophysical exploration permit applications for Alaska and renewals of exploration
  permits for Alaska pre-dated the 2005 cost recovery rule and were not affected by the Energy Policy Act
  prohibition, the BLM interprets the Energy Policy Act provision as prohibiting it from increasing this $25
  fee.
\7\ The BLM interprets the Energy Policy Act prohibition discussed in footnote 6, above, as prohibiting it from
  increasing this $25 fee, as well.

  Economic Analysis (April 27, 2012).

III. How Fees Are Adjusted

    Each year, the figures in the Existing Value column in the table 
above (not those in the Existing Fee column) are used as the basis for 
calculating the adjustment to these fees. The Existing Value is the 
figure from the New Value column in the previous year's rule. In the 
case of fees that were not in the table the previous year, or that had 
no figure in the New Value column the previous year, the Existing Value 
is the same as the Existing Fee. Because the new fees are derived from 
the new values--rounded to the nearest $5 or the nearest penny for fees 
under $1--adjustments based on the figures in the Existing Fee column 
would lead to significantly over- or under-valued fees over time. 
Accordingly, fee adjustments are made by multiplying the annual change 
in the IPD-GDP by the figure in the Existing Value column. This 
calculation defines the New Value for this year, which is then rounded 
to the nearest $5 or the nearest penny for fees under $1, to establish 
the New Fee.

IV. Procedural Matters

Regulatory Planning and Review (Executive Order 12866)

    This document is not a significant rule and the Office of 
Management and

[[Page 55423]]

Budget has not reviewed this rule under Executive Order 12866.
    The BLM has determined that the rule will not have an annual effect 
on the economy of $100 million or more. It will not adversely affect in 
a material way the economy, a sector of the economy, productivity, 
competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, 
local, or tribal governments or communities. The changes in today's 
rule are much smaller than those in the 2005 final rule, which did not 
approach the threshold in Executive Order 12866. For instructions on 
how to view a copy of the analysis prepared in conjunction with the 
2005 final rule, please contact one of the persons listed in the FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above.
    This rule will not create inconsistencies or otherwise interfere 
with an action taken or planned by another agency. This rule does not 
change the relationships of the onshore minerals programs with other 
agencies' actions. These relationships are included in agreements and 
memoranda of understanding that would not change with this rule.
    In addition, this final rule does not materially affect the 
budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, or loan programs, or the 
rights and obligations of their recipients. This rule does apply an 
inflation factor that increases some existing user fees for processing 
documents associated with the onshore minerals programs. However, most 
of these fee increases are less than 3 percent and none of the 
increases materially affect the budgetary impact of user fees.
    Finally, this rule will not raise novel legal issues. As explained 
above, this rule simply implements an annual process to account for 
inflation that was adopted by and explained in the 2005 cost recovery 
rule.

The Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This final rule will not have a significant economic effect on a 
substantial number of small entities as defined under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). A Regulatory Flexibility 
Analysis is not required. Accordingly, a Small Entity Compliance Guide 
is not required. For the purposes of this section, a small entity is 
defined by the Small Business Administration (SBA) for mining (broadly 
inclusive of metal mining, coal mining, oil and gas extraction, and the 
mining and quarrying of nonmetallic minerals) as an individual, limited 
partnership, or small company considered to be at arm's length from the 
control of any parent companies, with fewer than 500 employees. The SBA 
defines a small entity differently, however, for leasing Federal land 
for coal mining. A coal lessee is a small entity if it employs not more 
than 250 people, including people working for its affiliates.
    The SBA would consider many, if not most, of the operators the BLM 
works with in the onshore minerals programs to be small entities. The 
BLM notes that this final rule does not affect service industries, for 
which the SBA has a different definition of ``small entity.''
    The final rule may affect a large number of small entities since 17 
fees for activities on public lands will be increased. However, the BLM 
has concluded that the effects will not be significant. Most of the 
fixed fee increases will be less than 3 percent as a result of this 
final rule. The adjustments result in no increase in the fee for the 
processing of 31 documents relating to the BLM's minerals programs. The 
highest adjustment, in dollar terms, is for adjudications of mineral 
patent applications involving more than 10 mining claims, which will be 
increased by $65. For the 2005 final rule, the BLM completed a 
threshold analysis, which is available for public review in the 
administrative record for that rule. For instructions on how to view a 
copy of that analysis, please contact one of the persons listed in the 
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above. The analysis for the 
2005 rule concluded that the fees would not have a significant economic 
effect on a substantial number of small entities. The fee increases 
implemented in today's rule are substantially smaller than those 
provided for in the 2005 rule.

The Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This final rule is not a ``major rule'' as defined at 5 U.S.C. 
804(2). The final rule will not have an annual effect on the economy 
greater than $100 million; it will not result in major cost or price 
increases for consumers, industries, government agencies, or regions; 
and it will not have significant adverse effects on competition, 
employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of 
U.S.-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises. For 
the 2005 final rule, which established the fee adjustment procedure 
that this rule implements, the BLM completed a threshold analysis, 
which is available for public review in the administrative record for 
that rule. The fee increases implemented in today's rule are 
substantially smaller than those provided for in the 2005 rule.

Executive Order 13132, Federalism

    This final rule will not have a substantial direct effect on the 
States, on the relationship between the national government and the 
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of government. In accordance with Executive Order 13132, 
therefore, we find that the final rule does not have significant 
federalism effects. A federalism assessment is not required.

The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    These regulations contain information collection requirements. As 
required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.), the BLM submitted a copy of the proposed information collection 
requirements to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. 
The OMB approved the information collection requirements under the 
following Control Numbers:
Oil and Gas
    (1) 1004-0034 which expires July 31, 2015;
    (2) 1004-0137 which expires October 31, 2014;
    (3) 1004-0162 which expires July 31, 2015;
    (4) 1004-0185 which expires November 30, 2012;
Geothermal
    (5) 1004-0132 which expires December 31, 2013;
Coal
    (6) 1004-0073 which expires June 30, 2013;
Mining Claims
    (7) 1004-0025 which expires March 31, 2013;
    (8) 1004-0114 which expires August 31, 2013; and
Leasing of Solid Minerals Other Than Oil Shale
    (9) 1004-0121 which expires February 28, 2013.

Takings Implication Assessment (Executive Order 12630)

    As required by Executive Order 12630, the BLM has determined that 
this rule will not cause a taking of private property. No private 
property rights will be affected by a rule that merely updates fees. 
The BLM therefore certifies that this final rule does not represent a 
governmental action capable of interference with constitutionally 
protected property rights.

[[Page 55424]]

Civil Justice Reform (Executive Order 12988)

    In accordance with Executive Order 12988, the BLM finds that this 
final rule will not unduly burden the judicial system and meets the 
requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Executive Order.

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)

    The BLM has determined that this final rule is administrative and 
involves only procedural changes addressing fee requirements. In 
promulgating this rule, the government is conducting routine and 
continuing government business of an administrative nature having 
limited context and intensity. Therefore, it is categorically excluded 
from environmental review under section 102(2)(C) of NEPA, pursuant to 
43 CFR 46.205 and 46.210(c) and (i). The final rule does not meet any 
of the 12 criteria for exceptions to categorical exclusions listed at 
43 CFR 46.215.
    Pursuant to Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulation and 
the environmental policies and procedures of the Department of the 
Interior, the term ``categorical exclusions'' means categories of 
actions ``which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment and which have been found to have no 
such effect in procedures adopted by a Federal agency in implementation 
of [CEQ] regulations (Sec.  1507.3) and for which, therefore, neither 
an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is 
required.'' 40 CFR 1508.4; see also BLM National Environmental Policy 
Act Handbook H-1790-1, Ch. 4, at 17 (Jan. 2008).

The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    The BLM has determined that this final rule is not significant 
under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq., 
because it will not result in State, local, private sector, or tribal 
government expenditures of $100 million or more in any one year, 2 
U.S.C. 1532. This rule will not significantly or uniquely affect small 
governments. Therefore, the BLM is not required to prepare a statement 
containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform 
Act.

Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments (Executive 
Order 13175)

    In accordance with Executive Order 13175, the BLM has determined 
that this final rule does not include policies that have tribal 
implications. A key factor is whether the rule would have substantial 
direct effects on one or more Indian tribes. The BLM has not found any 
substantial direct effects. Consequently, the BLM did not utilize the 
consultation process set forth in Section 5 of the Executive Order.

Information Quality Act

    In developing this rule, the BLM did not conduct or use a study, 
experiment, or survey requiring peer review under the Information 
Quality Act (Pub. L. 106-554).

Effects on the Nation's Energy Supply (Executive Order 13211)

    In accordance with Executive Order 13211, the BLM has determined 
that this final rule is not likely to have a significant adverse effect 
on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The distribution of or 
use of energy would not be unduly affected by this final rule. It 
merely adjusts certain administrative cost recovery fees to account for 
inflation.

Author

    The principal author of this rule is Faith Bremner of the Division 
of Regulatory Affairs, Bureau of Land Management.
