National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration March 5, 2009 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Changes to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Regulations; Technical Corrections and Minor Substantive Changes
Document Number: E9-4569
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-03-05
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
On December 19, 2008, NOAA published a proposed rule in the Federal Register that makes technical corrections and minor modifications to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS) regulations. The preamble of that document contained an inaccurate reference to U.S. Coast Guard regulations, which was a basis for one of the proposed modifications. This document eliminates that reference and clarifies the rationale for making this regulation change. The ONMS is preparing an environmental assessment pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act.
