Start Preamble


Maritime Administration, Department of Transportation.


Correcting amendment.


The Maritime Administration is correcting an interim final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of October 9, 2008 (73 FR 59530). Due to the current financial environment and the receipt of informal comments indicating that one hundred and twenty (120) days is insufficient time to formulate an application, this document changes the summary section of the regulation to reflect that the Maritime Administration is seeking comment on the America's Marine Highway program and recommendations for Marine Highway Corridors and not soliciting applications for specific projects at this time.


Effective Date: This final rule is effective November 10, 2008.
