NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries Seeks Comments on Periodic Review of Existing Regulations

On March 1, 2018, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) published a notification of plan for periodic review and request for comments on two regulations up for review under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The topics for review include Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary Regulations; Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Regulations; and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary Regulations, and Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary Regulations. ONMS is seeking comments on whether the rule is still needed, how complex the rule is, whether there is overlap or conflict with other rules, and how long it has been since the rule has been evaluated. Comments are due by April 2, 2018.
