USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AE71 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: AQI User Fees 

We are proposing multiple revisions to our AQI user fee regulations in order to facilitate full cost recovery as required by 21 U.S.C. 136a. We are proposing to update the fees using more current operational data, as well as update the fees to incorporate recurring costs such as capital improvements and staffing needs. Inflation would also be incorporated into our model. Other changes are also being contemplated. APHIS conducted a Tribal listening session to determine whether this action could adversely impact Tribes, and received no concerns.
