On November 12, 2013, we published a direct final rule and request for comment entitled, “Anchorage Regulations: Pacific Ocean at San Nicolas Island, Calif.; Restricted Anchorage Areas” in the Federal Register (78 FR 67300). That rule announced our intent to amend the restricted anchorage areas of San Nicolas Island, California, by removing the west area anchorage restriction and decreasing the size of the east area anchorage restriction.
In the direct final rule we notified the public of our intent to make the rule effective on February 10, 2014, unless an adverse comment, or notice of intent to submit an adverse comment, was received on or before January 13, 2014. We did not receive any adverse comments or notices of intent to submit an adverse comment on the rule. Therefore, under 33 CFR 1.05-55(d), we now confirm that the amendments to the restricted anchorage areas of San Nicolas Island, California, will become effective, as scheduled, on February 10, 2014.
