2013 Final Fee Rate and Fingerprint Fees

AGENCY: National Indian Gaming Commission, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given, pursuant to 25 CFR 514.2, that the 
National Indian Gaming Commission has adopted its 2013 final annual fee 
rates of 0.00% for tier 1 and 0.072% (.00072) for tier 2. These rates 
shall apply to all assessable gross revenues from each gaming operation 
under the jurisdiction of the Commission. If a tribe has a certificate 
of self-regulation under 25 CFR part 518, the 2013 final fee rate on 
Class II revenues shall be one-half of the annual fee rate, which is 
0.036% (.00036).
    Pursuant to 25 CFR 514.16, the National Indian Gaming Commission 
has also adopted its new fingerprint processing fees of $22 per card 
effective June 1st, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yvonne Lee, National Indian Gaming 
Commission, 1441 L Street NW., Suite 9100, Washington, DC 20005; 
telephone (202) 632-7003; fax (202) 632-7066.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) 
established the National Indian Gaming Commission which is charged 
with, among other things, regulating gaming on Indian lands.
    The regulations of the Commission (25 CFR part 514), as amended, 
provide for a system of fee assessment and payment that is self-
administered by gaming operations. Pursuant to those regulations, the 
Commission is required to adopt and communicate assessment rates; the 
gaming operations are required to apply those rates to their revenues, 
compute the fees to be paid, report the revenues, and remit the fees to 
the Commission. The final rate being adopted here is effective June 
1st, 2013 and will remain in effect until a new fee rate is adopted. 
Therefore, all gaming operations within the jurisdiction of the 
Commission are required to self administer the provisions of these 
regulations, and report and pay any fees that are due to the 
Commission.
    Pursuant to 25 CFR part 514, the Commission shall also review 
annually the costs involved in processing fingerprint cards based on 
fees charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and costs incurred 
by the Commission. Commission costs include Commission personnel, 
supplies, equipment costs, and postage to submit the results to the 
requesting tribe. The new fingerprint processing fees being adopted 
here is effective June 1st, 2013.

Chairwoman.
