Special Local Regulations for Marine Events; Rappahannock River, Essex County, Westmoreland County, Layton, VA; Correction
This document corrects the preamble to a proposed rule published in the Federal Register of April 3, 2006, regarding a temporary special local regulation for ``2006 Rappahannock River Boaters Association Spring and Fall Radar Shootout'', power boat races to be held on the waters of the Rappahannock River near Layton, VA. This correction changes the date by which comments and related material must reach the Coast Guard, from June 2, 2006 to May 3, 2006. The change is necessary because the June 2 date does not allow adequate time to issue a final rule before June 3, 2006, the date of the first event affected by the proposed rule.
Environmental Assessment for Homeporting of Four National Security Cutters at Alameda, CA
The Coast Guard announces its intent to prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the homeporting of four new 418-foot National Security Cutters (NSCs) at Coast Guard Island (CGI) in Alameda, California, and requests public comments. Preparation of the EA is being conducted in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and its implementing regulations. The new NSCs will replace the four existing 30-year old 378-foot High Endurance Cutters (HECs) currently homeported at CGI, starting with one in 2007/2008 and continuing with one replacement per year until 2010/2011, under current plans.
