We received several such requests and have already held two public meetings in Astoria and Newport, Oregon (74 FR 16814, Apr. 13, 2009). Due to several requests for a meeting in southern Oregon we have concluded that a third public meeting would aid this rulemaking. Therefore, we are publishing this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    We published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal 
Register on February 12, 2009 (74 FR 7022), entitled ``Regulated 
Navigation Areas; Bars Along the Coasts of Oregon and Washington.'' In 
it we stated that we did not plan to hold a public meeting, but that we 
welcomed requests explaining why one would be beneficial (74 FR 7023). 
We received several such requests and have already held two public 
meetings in Astoria and Newport, Oregon (74 FR 16814, Apr. 13, 2009). 
Due to several requests for a meeting in southern Oregon we have 
concluded that a third public meeting would aid this rulemaking. 
Therefore, we are publishing this notice.
    In the NPRM, we proposed to establish Regulated Navigation Areas 
(RNA) covering specific bars along the coasts of Oregon and Washington 
that will include procedures for restricting and/or closing those bars 
as well as additional safety requirements for recreational and small 
commercial vessels operating in the RNAs. The RNAs are necessary to

hazardous bar areas. The RNAs will do so by establishing clear 
procedures for restricting and/or closing the bars and mandating 
additional safety requirements for recreational and small commercial 
vessels operating in the RNAs when certain conditions exist. On May 8,
