The Coast Guard published a proposed rule in the Federal Register to announce a public meeting scheduled to take place on June 5, 2014, in Arlington, Va. to receive comments on a notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register on April 8, 2014 , under the title “Tonnage Regulations Amendments.”

This proposed rule would amend the tonnage regulations by implementing amendments to the tonnage measurement law made by the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010 , codifying principal technical interpretations issued by the Coast Guard, and incorporating administrative, non-substantive clarifications of and updates to the tonnage regulations.

You may also submit comments to the docket before or after the meeting.
