SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The House of Representatives introduced H.R. 1442 to complete the codification of title 46, United States Code, “Shipping,” as positive law, by reorganizing and restating the laws previously set forth in the appendix to title 46. On October 6, 2006, H.R. 1442 was enacted as Public Law 109-304. This rule changes prior references in the Commission regulations to reflect the codification and involves no substantive changes. This rule also corrects typographical errors in the Commission regulations.

Because this rule involves no substantive changes, the Commission finds, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), that notice and public procedure on this rule is unnecessary. The Chairman of the Commission certifies, pursuant to section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. et seq., that the rule will not, if promulgated, have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

This rule is not a “major rule” under 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
