We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held.

This event will occur before 30 days have elapsed after the publication of the rule in the Federal Register. Insufficient time was available to provide both a period for meaningful comment and also a 30 day period after publication for the effective date of this temporary final rule. B. Basis and Purpose (a) The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish regulated navigation areas and other limited access areas: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 46 U.S.C.
