Coast Guard, DOT.
Final rule; correction.
The Coast Guard published a final rule on September 24, 2001, creating a security zone surrounding the waters off of Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Michigan. The original parameters of that zone extended one half mile from the shore, between the Hall Road launch ramp and the entrance to Mac and Rays Marina, and the rule had no expiration date. In the interest of small businesses within that zone, COTP Detroit has readjusted the northern boundary to allow these businesses to continue to operate, and an expiration date has been inserted into the rule. The security zone is needed to protect the Selfridge area from terrorist threats.

Background and Purpose
The Coast Guard published a final rule in the Federal Register on September 24, 2001, (66 FR 48795), to create a security zone in response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. We are changing the location of the northern boundary of the security Zone and the duration of rule.
Need for Correction
Since publication, Captain of the Port Detroit has learned that a more southerly boundary would help facilitate local business owners. This readjustment in no ways compromises the intent of the original security zone. The regulation was published in response to the terrorist's attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. The security zone is intended to protect the life, property, and national security of U.S. citizens. These factors were considered along with the impact on local business in reestablishing the boundaries and effective period of this security zone.
