This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Resolution Regarding Use of Range Facilities on Vieques, Puerto Rico (Community Assistance)
Directive to the Secretary of Defense [and] Director, Office of Management and Budget
By separate directive I have addressed the resumption of Navy and Marine Corps training on the island of Vieques.
1. Provided that training opportunity has resumed and is continuously available on Vieques, then within 90 days of this directive, I direct the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to request authority and funding (which with funding for projects described in paragraph 5(e) of the previously referenced directive will total $40 million) from the Congress for the following projects:
(a) To support the construction of a new commercial ferry pier and terminal by the Army Corps of Engineers.
(b) To establish an artificial reef construction and fish aggregation program to create substantial new commercial fishing areas for Vieques fisherman. Until such time as these new fishing grounds are operational, this legislation will authorize direct payments of an amount (to be determined by the National Marine Fisheries Services) to be paid to registered Vieques commercial fishermen for each day they are unable to use existing waters because the Navy is training.
(c) To support expanding or improving the major cross-island roadways and bridges on Vieques.
(d) To establish an apprenticeship/training program for young people on Vieques to facilitate participation in small-scale civic construction projects.
(e) To establish a program with the Government of Puerto Rico to preserve the Puerto Mosquito Vieques bioluminescent bay and to commit Federal resources to its preservation.
(f) To establish a professional economic development office for Vieques for the purpose of promoting Vieques and attracting jobs to the island.
2. The Director of OMB shall publish this directive in the Federal Register.wj THE WHITE HOUSE, Washington, January 31, 2000. Filed 2-3-00; 11:22 am]
