In an effort to achieve uniformity in the classification of this commodity, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has adopted as final a proposed interpretive rule whereby ornamental braid on a baseball-style cap, located between peak and crown in a width of \1/8\ of an inch or greater, will render the cap classifiable in the HTSUS as ``wholly or in part of braid.'' Conversely, such braid in a width of less than \1/ 8\ of an inch will result in a cap being classifiable in the HTSUS as ``not in part of braid.''

Current Federal statutes and regulations limit these conditions to proof of ownership or payment of State or local taxes. The rule allows any State to impose proof of liability insurance as a condition for obtaining vessel numbering certificates in that State. Currently, States are not prohibited from requiring proof of liability insurance to operate a recreational vessel. However, States are prohibited from using an efficient mechanism, such as vessel registration, to manage and enforce such a requirement.
Special Local Regulations; Dania Beach/Hollywood Super Boat Race, Dania Beach/Hollywood, FL
Document Number: 05-5336
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-03-18
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary special local regulation for the Dania Beach/Hollywood Super Boat Race offshore in Dania Beach/Hollywood, Florida. These special local regulations restrict the movement of non-participating vessels and persons in the regulated race area and provide a viewing area for spectator craft. This rule is needed to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event.
