Petition No. P2005-01
LCB File No. R097-05
Nevada Administrative Code: NAC 519A
Description of Petition: Regulation R097-05: Mining Reclamation Permit Modification and Fee Adjustments. (Note: the SEC approved this regulation as a temporary regulation on June 10, 2005. The regulation remains unchanged and is now proposed as a permanent regulation.) This regulation amends the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 519A mining reclamation. Changes include a revision to the current fee structure for a permit modification and the definition of minor permit modifications. The proposed revision also defines a major modification. The revision to the current fee structure will reduce the fees charged for simple changes to the permit that require minimal staff time to review and process. The other proposed revisions set clearer parameters to define minor and major modification.
This regulation will not have an immediate or long-term adverse effect on business or the public. There will be no additional cost to the agency for enforcement of the proposed regulation and the regulation does not overlap or duplicate any regulations of other state, federal, or local agencies. The amended regulation is no more stringent than what is established by federal law. As noted above, a revision to the current fee structure is proposed and would reduce fees charged for simple permit changes.
