2008 Rates for Pilotage on the Great Lakes
Document Number: 08-474
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-02-01
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is proposing to update the rates for pilotage on the Great Lakes. Based on our review, we propose to adjust the pilotage rates an average of 8.17% for the 2008 shipping season to generate sufficient revenue to cover allowable expenses, target pilot compensation, and returns on investment. We also are proposing a clarification of the duty of pilots and pilot associations to cooperate with lawful authority. This rulemaking promotes the Coast Guard strategic goal of maritime safety.
