This final rule supersedes the temporary interim rule that was published on January 6, 2004. The temporary interim rule revised 1975 regulations that implemented the Deepwater Port Act of 1974. It updated and streamlined those regulations in accordance with the 1996 Deepwater Port Modernization Act, and extended them to include the natural gas deepwater ports authorized by Congress in the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002. This final rule revises and finalizes the regulations issued in the temporary interim rule.
