Start Supplemental Information
On May 6, 2020, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Special Local Regulation; Choptank River, Hambrooks Bay, Cambridge, MD” in the Federal Register (85 FR 26903). The rulemaking concerned was proposing to establish temporary special local regulations for certain waters of the Choptank River in Cambridge, MD on July 25, 2020 and July 26, 2020. This action was necessary to provide for the safety of life on these waters during a high-speed power boat racing event. This rulemaking would have prohibited persons and vessels from entering the regulated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Maryland-National Capital Region or a designated representative.
The proposed rule is being withdrawn due to a regulated area no longer being necessary following a cancellation of the high-speed power boat racing event by the event sponsor.
We are issuing this notice of withdrawal under the authority of 46 U.S.C. 70034.
