SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given, pursuant to 25 CFR 514.1(a)(3), that 
the National Indian Gaming Commission has adopted preliminary annual 
fee rates of 0.00% for tier 1 and 0.060% (.00060) for tier 2 for

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 semi-annual basis.
    The regulations of the Commission and the preliminary rate being 
adopted today are effective for calendar year 2010. 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 June 30, 

    Dated: January 28, 2010.
George Skibine,
Acting Chairman, National Indian Gaming Commission.
