Bill (and Steve) - 

    As noted in the Fee Schedule change announcement, the adopted fee change that was adopted was altered based on the feedback received during this consultation.  

    There was significant feedback about raising fees for end-users, but predominately that feedback focused on the impact to legacy end-users under LRSA agreement, who had expectations that their fees would not increase significantly when entering voluntarily under the LRSA agreement. 

    As a result of the concerns expressed, the Board reviewed an alternative fee change proposal, the same in all aspects to the proposed fee change, only with the addition of extending the annual cap on maintenance fees (that early LRSA holders have) to all legacy resource holders.  In this manner, the fee change will have nominal impact for those legacy holders (and may be a reduction in some cases.)
