Request for Comments
The notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on Outer Continental Shelf Activities, published on December 7, 1999 (64 FR 68416), encouraged interested persons to participate in this rulemaking by submitting written data, views, or arguments by April 5, 2000. It also invited comments on collection-of-information requirements to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) by February 7, 2000. We received a request to extend both of those dates to July 5, 2000, and did so by a notice of extension (65 FR 14226, March 16, 2000). As a result of several requests since that notice of extension, we are again extending both dates until November 30, 2000.
Persons submitting comments should include their names and addresses, identify this docket (USCG-1998-3868) and the specific section of the NPRM to which each comment applies, and give the reason for each comment. You may submit your comments and material by mail, hand delivery, fax, or electronic means to the Docket Management Facility at the address under ADDRESSES; but please submit your comments and material by only one means. If you submit them by mail or hand delivery, submit them in an unbound format, no larger than 81/2 by 11 inches, suitable for copying and electronic filing. If you submit them by mail and would like to know they reached the Facility, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed postcard or envelope.
The Coast Guard will consider all comments received during the comment period. It may change this NPRM in view of them.Start Signature
