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

[[Page 74757]]

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 on a quarterly basis.
    The regulations of the Commission and the final rate being adopted 
today are effective for calendar year 2008. 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 by December 31, 2008.

    Dated: December 1, 2008.
Philip N. Hogen,
Chairman, National Indian Gaming Commission.
