While TSA is in the process of completing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would fulfill requirements of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (9/11 Act) to mandate security training for frontline employees, additional data would provide TSA with a more accurate understanding of the existing baseline and potential costs associated with the proposed rule. In particular, TSA is requesting information regarding programs currently implemented— whether as a result of regulatory requirements, grant requirements, in anticipation of a rule, voluntary, or otherwise—and the costs associated with these training programs.

The vessel’s primary purpose is as an island passenger car ferry that operates on the south shore of Lake Superior in Northern Wisconsin. The unique design of the vessel did not lend itself to full compliance with Annex I of the Inland Rules Act. The Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard, certifies that full compliance with the Inland Rules Act would interfere with the special functions/intent of the vessel and would not significantly enhance the safety of the vessel’s operation. Placing the starboard and port side lights in the required position would make them vulnerable to damage from the dock wall because of consistent lower than normal water levels on Lake Superior. The Certificate of Alternative Compliance authorizes the M/V MADELINE to deviate from the requirements set forth in Annex I of the Inland Rules Act by placing its port and starboard lights on the main superstructure above the pilot house.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    A Certificate of Alternative Compliance, as allowed for under 33 
U.S.C. 1605(c) and 33 CFR 81.18, has been issued for the M/V MADELINE. 
The vessel's primary purpose is as an island passenger car ferry that 
operates on the south shore of Lake Superior in Northern Wisconsin. The 
unique design of the vessel did not lend itself to full compliance with 
Annex I of the Inland Rules Act.
    The Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard, certifies that full compliance 
with the Inland Rules Act would interfere with the special functions/
intent of the vessel and would not significantly enhance the safety of 
the vessel's operation. Placing the starboard and port side lights in 
the required position would make them vulnerable to damage from the 
dock wall because of consistent lower than normal water levels on Lake 
Superior.
    The Certificate of Alternative Compliance authorizes the M/V 
MADELINE to deviate from the requirements set forth in Annex I of the 
Inland Rules Act by placing its port and starboard lights on the main 
superstructure above the pilot house.
    This notice is issued under authority of 33 U.S.C. 1605(c), and 33 
CFR 81.18.

    Dated: May 10, 2013.
S.E. Anderson,
Commander, U.S. Coast Guard Acting Chief, Prevention Division By 
Direction of the Commander, Ninth Coast Guard District.
