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 on a quarterly basis.
    The regulations of the Commission and the final rate being adopted 
today are effective for calendar year 2009. 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, 2009.

    December 17, 2009.
George Skibine,
Acting Chairman, National Indian Gaming Commission.
