Requested Administrative Waiver of the Coastwise Trade Laws
DATES: Submit comments on or before August 16, 2007.
As authorized by Public Law 105-383 and Public Law 107-295,
the Secretary of Transportation, as represented by the Maritime
Administration (MARAD), is authorized to grant waivers of the U.S.
build requirement of the coastwise laws under certain circumstances. A
request for such a waiver has been received by MARAD. The vessel, and a
brief description of the proposed service, is listed below. The
complete application is given in DOT docket MARAD200728703 at http://dms.dot.gov. Interested parties may comment on the effect this action
may have on U.S. vessel builders or businesses in the U.S. that use U.S.flag vessels. If MARAD determines, in accordance with Public Law 105383 and MARAD's regulations at 46 CFR Part 388 (68 FR 23084; April 30, 2003), that the issuance of the waiver will have an unduly adverse effect on a U.S.vessel builder or a business that uses U.S.flag vessels in that business, a waiver will not be granted. Comments should refer to the docket number of this notice and the vessel name in order for MARAD to properly consider the comments. Comments should also state the commenter's interest in the waiver application, and address the waiver criteria given in Sec. 388.4 of MARAD's regulations at 46 CFR Part 388.
