Rulemaking Package #1, Public Resources Code (PRC) §2207, Fees Calculation and Schedule
The State Mining and Geology Board (SMGB) proposes to amend existing regulations in the California Code of Regulations (CCR) pertaining to Fees Calculation and Schedule. The amendments to the CCR are necessary in order to enact the revisions to PRC section 2207, as amended by Senate Bill 209, signed into law on April 18th, 2016 by Governor Brown, to address the fees calculation formula, to maintain a more equitable fee schedule for relatively smaller operations, and to clarify regulation language for consistency . A . The proposed regulatory action was published in the California Regulatory Notice Register, No. 39-Z, September 29, 2017. The 45-day formal public comment period for the revisions of sections 3697, 3698, and 3699 of Title 14, Division 2, Chapter 8, Subchapter 1, Article 8 of the CCR ran from September 29 - November 13, 2017.
The SMGB has made modifications to the proposed amended regulatory text. A 15-day formal comment period for the modifications of the proposed regulatory text will run from November 16 – December 1, 2017. See links below for associated documents.
