The Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on May 28, 2013 (78 FR 31872) proposing to add to its regulations a provision in section 301 of the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108-293), codified at 33 U.S.C. 409, that authorizes the Commandant to waive the requirement to mark a sunken vessel, raft, or other craft with a light at night if the Commandant determines it would be “impracticable and granting such a waiver would not create an undue hazard to navigation.” We received no comments on the proposed rule, no public meeting was requested, and none was held.

We note, however, that the NPRM was published with an incorrect Regulatory Identification Number (RIN) of 1625-AA97, which was withdrawn in 2008. We have assigned a new RIN, 1625-AC11, to this rule.
