Security Zone; High Capacity Passenger Vessels and Alaska Marine Highway System Vessels in Alaska
Document Number: 05-21576
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-10-31
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is revising its proposed rule published March 9, 2005, to establish permanent moving security zones around all escorted High Capacity Passenger Vessels (``HCPV'') and escorted Alaska Marine Highway System Vessels (``AMHS vessels'') during their transit in the navigable waters of the Seventeenth Coast Guard District. The 250-yard speed restriction zone, the 25-yard security zone around moored and anchored vessels, and the waiver request process in the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) have been eliminated. The Coast Guard has revised the proposed security zones prohibiting any vessel from entering within 100 yards of an escorted HCPV or escorted AMHS vessel while in transit. These security zones are necessary to mitigate potential terrorist acts and enhance public and maritime safety and security. Permission to enter these security zones may be granted by the designated on-scene representative.

Adjustment of the Immigration Benefit Application Fee Schedule; Correction
Document Number: 05-21483
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-10-26
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a notice in the Federal Register on September 26, 2005 at 70 FR 56182 to increase the fees for immigration benefit applications and petitions to account for cost increases due to inflation. In the fee table of the September 26, 2005 notice, USCIS added a footnote ``6'' next to the new fee for the Form N-600K. Footnote ``6'' shows an increase in fee from $200 to $215 for an application filed on behalf of an adopted child (as compared to the base fee increase from $240 to $255). The placement of this footnote and its lack of specificity regarding which ``application'' it was meant to refer to have created some ambiguity regarding the adopted child fee for the Form N-600, which similarly was adjusted from $200 to $215 (as compared to the new base fee of $255 referenced in the Notice). Accordingly, this notice clarifies the prior notice by amending footnote ``6'' to state specifically that it refers to both the Form N- 600 and the Form N-600K.
