The Coast Guard is establishing a 500-yard moving security zone around any vessel being escorted by one or more Coast Guard or other Federal, State, or local law enforcement assets on the navigable waters of the Captain of the Port Zone, Mobile, Alabama. This action is necessary to ensure the safe transit and mooring of escorted vessels as well as the safety and security of personnel and port facilities. No vessel or person is allowed inside the security zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or a designated representative. The Coast Guard seeks comments on this interim rule.
