Coast Guard January 15, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Safety Zones; Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan Zone
Document Number: 2014-00282
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-15
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to amend its safety zones regulations for annual events in the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan zone. This proposed rule would update the locations and/or enforcement times for 23 permanent safety zones, add 10 new permanent safety zones, and allow enforcement times to be subject to change with notice. We believe these changes are necessary to protect spectators, participants, and vessels from the hazards associated with annual maritime events, including fireworks displays, boat races, and air shows.
