Technical Amendment To List of User Fee Airports: Addition of Three Airports, Removal of Two Airports
Document Number: 2021-20518
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-09-23
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document amends U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations by revising the list of user fee airports. User fee airports are airports that have been approved by the Commissioner of CBP to receive, for a fee, the customs services of CBP officers for processing aircraft, passengers, and cargo entering the United States, but that do not qualify for designation as international or landing rights airports. Specifically, this technical amendment reflects the designation of user fee status for three additional airports: Witham Field Airport in Stuart, Florida; Plattsburgh International Airport in Plattsburgh, New York; and Fort Worth Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, Texas. This document also amends CBP regulations by removing the designation of user fee status for two airports: Griffiss International Airport in Rome, New York, and Cobb County International Airport in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Uniform Certificate of Title Act for Vessels
Document Number: 2021-20095
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-09-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes changes to its regulations for certifying a State's titling system for undocumented vessels to increase States' participation in the Vessel Identification System (VIS). The proposed changes would allow States that have adopted the recommendations of the model Uniform Certificate of Title Act for Vessels to certify their titling provisions with the Coast Guard. Once certified and participating in the VIS, a State is able to confer preferred mortgage status on financial instruments that apply to undocumented vessels, which benefits the owners of those vessels. While many of the proposed changes to the certification guidelines relate to the technical requirements of recording and maintaining titling documentation, the most significant change would be to implement a system of ``branding'' (permanently marking) titles for vessels that have sustained structural damage. This would help prevent a process known as ``title washing,'' where severe vessel damage is concealed by transferring the title to a different State.

Regulated Navigation Area; Offshore, Cape Canaveral, Florida
Document Number: 2021-20105
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-09-17
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is proposing to replace the existing safety zone in Captain of the Port Zone Jacksonville, Offshore Cape Canaveral, Florida with a regulated navigation area (RNA). The existing safety zone is composed of four large regulated areas and was established in 2009 with the intent of protecting vessels from risks posed from rockets launching from facilities on Cape Canaveral. Changes in the type and size of launch vehicles, rocket component recovery methods, and the increased frequency of launches pose variable risks to marine traffic and require a more flexible regulatory tool. The proposed RNA would encompass all waters within typical rocket flight trajectories originating from launch complexes on and around Cape Canaveral, FL and out to 12 nautical miles. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
