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.
    Commission regulations (25 CFR part 514) 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 and 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. 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. As noted above, 
if a tribe has a certificate of self-regulation under 25 CFR part 518 
the 2014 preliminary fee rate on Class II revenues shall be one-half of 
the annual fee rate, which is 0.036% (.00036).
    Pursuant to 25 CFR part 514, the Commission must also review 
annually the costs involved in processing fingerprint cards and set a 
fee based on fees charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and 
costs incurred by the Commission. Commission costs include Commission 
personnel, supplies, equipment costs, and postage to submit the results 
to the requesting tribe. Based on that review, the Commission hereby 
sets the 2014 fingerprint processing fee at $22 per card.

Acting Chairman.
