SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On April 29, 2003, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Regulated Navigation Area in Hampton Roads, VA” in the Federal Register (68 FR 22648). The rulemaking concerned proposed revisions to the regulated navigation area in Hampton Roads, Virginia, designed to impose vessel reporting requirements and speed limit restrictions in certain areas of the port. On May 22, 2003, we published a substantially similar notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Regulated Navigation Area in Hampton Roads, VA” in the Federal Register (68 FR 27948). The Coast Guard is withdrawing only the May 22, 2003, notice of rulemaking.

Withdrawal

Though the April 29, 2003, notice of proposed rulemaking (68 FR 22648) and the May 22, 2003, notice of proposed rulemaking (68 FR 27948) are not identical, the provisions are substantially similar. In order to alleviate public confusion and facilitate the development of a final rule, the Coast Guard is withdrawing the May 22, 2003, notice of proposed rulemaking “Regulated Navigation Area in Hampton Roads, VA” (68 FR 27948). The April 29, 2003, notice of proposed rulemaking “Regulated Navigation Area in Hampton Roads, VA” (68 FR 22648) will remain unchanged by this action and is anticipated to be the basis of a final rule.
