              15. Nuclear Waste Fund Fees [42 U.S.C. 10222]


  Sec. 302. (a) contracts.--(1) In the performance of his functions 
under this Act, the Secretary is authorized to enter into contracts with 
any person who generates or holds title to high-level radioactive waste, 
or spent nuclear fuel, of domestic origin for the acceptance of title, 
subsequent transportation, and disposal of such waste or spent fuel. 
Such contracts shall provide for payment to the Secretary of fees 
pursuant to paragraphs (2) and (3) sufficient to offset expenditures 
described in subsection (d).


                                  * * *



  (4) Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
the Secretary shall establish procedures for the collection and payment 
of the fees established by paragraph (2) and paragraph (3). The 
Secretary shall annually review the amount of the fees established by 
paragraphs (2) and (3) above to evaluate whether collection of the fee 
will provide sufficient revenues to offset the costs as defined in 
subsection (d) herein. In the event the Secretary determines that either 
insufficient or excess revenues are being collected, in order to recover 
the costs incurred by the Federal Government that are specified in 
subsection (d), the Secretary shall propose an adjustment to the fee to 
insure full cost recovery. The Secretary shall immediately transmit this 
proposal for such an adjustment to Congress. The adjusted fee proposed 
by the Secretary shall be effective after a period of 90 days of 
continuous session have elapsed following the receipt of such 
transmittal unless during such 90-day period either House of Congress 
adopts a resolution disapproving the Secretary's proposed adjustment in 
accordance with the procedures set forth for congressional review of an 
energy action under section 551 of the Energy Policy and Conservation 
Act [42 U.S.C. 6421].


                                                          Sec. 1130(16A)
