The Federal Communications Commission's authority to impose and collect fees is mandated by Congress. In Section 8 of the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1989 (Title III, Section 3001 of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1989 (Public Law 101-239), Section 8, revising 47 U.S.C. 158), Congress authorized the FCC to impose and collect application processing fees and directed the Commission to prescribe charges for certain types of application processing or authorization services it provides to communications entities over which it has jurisdiction. Application processing fees are deposited in the U.S. Treasury and are not available to the Commission.
