Background

On December 13, 2008, the Coast Guard published a Final Rule titled “Regulated Navigation Area; Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts; Navigable Waterways within the First Coast Guard District” to correct an existing Regulated Navigation Area (RNA) within the waters of the First Coast Guard District. (72 FR 70780). Specifically, the Final Rule corrected erroneous references to “Subpart B of this chapter” and “Subpart B of this part” in Part 161 and Part 165, respectively. The references should have instead referred to “Subpart B of Part 161” in the revisions of both Part 161 and Part 165. The correction to Part 161 has been made. However, the reference in Part 165 was not made due to an inaccurate amendatory instruction. The substantive requirements of the rule are not altered by this technical correction.

Need for Correction

The Final Rule published on December 13, 2007 amended Parts 161 and 165 of Title 33 of the Code of Regulations. (72 FR 70780.) As explained in the preamble, the Final Rule revised a previously published erroneous reference to “Subpart B of this chapter” and “Subpart B of this part” in Part 161 and Part 165, respectively, instead of referring to “Subpart B of Part 161” in the revisions of both Part 161 and Part 165. The amendatory instruction for the Part 165 correction erroneously directed the deletion of 33 CFR 165.100(d)(5)(iv)(A)-(B) instead of only correcting the introductory text of 33 CFR 165.100(d)(5)(iv). This Final Rule corrects amendatory instruction 4 to revise the introductory text of 33 CFR 165.100(d)(5)(iv) without deleting subparagraphs (A) and (B), which was the intent of the December 13, 2007 Final Rule.
