SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 26, 2006, NMFS published a Proposed Rule to Implement Speed 
Restrictions to Reduce the Threat of Ship Collisions with North 
Atlantic Right Whales (71 FR 36299). That Federal Register notice began 
NMFS' 60-day public comment period ending on August 25, 2006.
    NMFS subsequently received a request by the World Shipping Council 
to extend the public comment period so that its members and the public 
can fully review and provide comments on the proposed rule. Due to the 
size and scope of the proposed rule and accompanying Draft 
Environmental Impact Statement, the World Shipping Council requested 
additional time to complete an independent analysis. Since then, NMFS 
has received other requests to extend the public comment period. In 
this notice NMFS is extending the public comment period until October 
5, 2006, in order to allow adequate time for the World Shipping Council 
and others to thoroughly review and thoughtfully comment on the 
proposed rule.
