MMS was asked to extend the deadline for submitting comments on the document, “Review of Existing Regulations, Request for Comment.” The requester indicated that more time was needed to comment due to the change of Administration. We believe the extension of time until March 28, 2001, will give the public sufficient time to comment on our existing regulations and on the actions we have taken in response to past comments and enacted legislation.Start Signature
