12/1/2014: Extension of comment period for 2015 Great Lakes pilotage rates – Annual review and adjustment

As a courtesy to our audience, Maritime Commons will provide a daily compilation of nationally-relevant Federal Register Notices. To provide comments for the public record, follow the Federal Register link for each individual notice. Please note, the Coast Guard cannot respond to comments on these notices outside of the Federal Register.

The Coast Guard is extending the comment period for the notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Great Lakes Pilotage Rates—2015 Annual Review and Adjustment,” published on September 4, 2014, for 30 days.

The Coast Guard is extending the comment period because new financial data was received that could affect the discretion provided by Step 7 of the Appendix A methodology and the final rate.

All comments and related material must be submitted on or before December 31, 2014.

Read the Federal Register notice for full details.
