        year to a uniform adjusted rate that, when applied to the 
        baseline estimate of the aggregate dollar amount of sales for

        that, when applied to the baseline estimate of the aggregate

amended by striking paragraphs (2) through (5) and inserting the 
following:
            ``(2) Fee payment required.--At the time of filing a 
        registration statement, the applicant shall pay to the 
        Commission a fee at a rate that shall be equal to $125 per 
        $1,000,000 of the maximum aggregate price at which such 
        securities are proposed to be offered, except that during 
        fiscal year 2003 and any succeeding fiscal year such fee shall 
        be adjusted pursuant to paragraph (5) or (6).

        required by paragraph (2) for such fiscal year to a rate that, 
        when applied to the baseline estimate of the aggregate maximum 
        offering prices for such fiscal year, is reasonably likely to 
        produce aggregate fee collections under this subsection that 
        are equal to the target offsetting collection amount for such
