Title: Cost Recovery 

This rule would revise the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement's (OSMRE) existing permit fees and impose new fees to recover OSMRE's costs for permit administration and enforcement services provided to the coal industry. The proposed fees would be applicable to permits for mining on lands where regulatory jurisdiction has not been delegated to the States and would include OSMRE's Federal program, States and Indian lands. The current fees are codified in the CFR; therefore, rulemaking is required to change them.
