The complete, draft text of the VTA is published below. Copies of the draft text are also available to the public upon request. MARAD will hold an open meeting for the purpose of developing the final text of the VTA at its headquarters located at 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590. MARAD will announce the open meeting by publication in the Federal Register.
