However, air carriers and other entities that participate in intergovernmental and foreign transportation to the United States and do not have a primary office in the United States are subject to UCR charges. They are required to designate a participating state as a base state and to pay the corresponding royalties to that state. 49 U.S.C 14504a (a) (2) (B) (ii) and f) (4). No changes to the state revenue fees were recommended and the 2020 and 2021 fee figures for the 41 participating states are consistent with those previously approved for 2010 to 2019. That is why the UCR`s plan for the 2020 registration years and subsequently recommends the approval of an overall revenue target of $111,770,060. The UCR plan and participating states levy registration fees for each registration year, which is the same period as the calendar year. As a general rule, pickup begins on October 1 of the previous year and continues until December 31 of the year following the year of registration. All revenue collected is distributed to participating states or to the UCR agreement management plan. No funding is distributed to the Confederation.
This rule applies directly to participating states, road transport companies, private property developers, brokers, carriers and leasing companies. In accordance with FRG standards as amended by the SBREFA, participating states are not considered small businesses because they do not meet the definition of a small business in section 601 of the FRG. In particular, states are not considered small state jurisdictions under Section 601 (5) of the FRG, because the state government is not part of the different levels of government listed in Section 601 (5) and because, even if it did, no state or district of Columbia has a population of less than 50,000, which is the criterion by which a state jurisdiction is considered small under Section 601 (5) of the FRG. The UCR Act, introduced in 2005, requires air carriers involved in intergovernmental trade and other companies subject to the law to submit annual fees based on fleet size to supplement funding for national self-propelled vehicle registration and safety programmes. However, the FMCSA has found that this rule will not have a significant effect on the entities concerned. This rule will lead to the current payment of registration fees for automobile carriers, private real estate carriers, brokers, carriers and leasing companies. The reduction will be approximately US$3 to US$2,712 per company, depending on the number of vehicles owned by the companies involved and/or operated by the companies involved. FMCSA argues that the royalty reduction will not have a significant impact on the small businesses involved. I therefore confirm that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a significant number of small businesses.
The state`s application of UCR registration requirements usually begins on January 1. However, given that the opening of the 2020 registration period has been delayed by several months due to a delay in the approval of royalties and that the recent crisis was caused by the widespread outbreak of COVID-19, the UCR is asking states to postpone implementation until 1 July 2020. This rule adjusts the annual registration fee for the UCR agreement, which is 49 U.S. C 14504a. The requested royalty adjustments are 49 US. C 14504a, given that, for the 2018 registration year, total revenues generated are expected to exceed the total revenues of $108 million distributed to the 41 participating states, in addition to the $5 million set for management costs related to the UCR plan and the UCR agreement.  The requested adjustments Start Printed Page 8193 were approved by the UCR plan in accordance with 49 United States. C filed.
