Glacier Bay National Park, Vessel Management Plan Regulations

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Final rule and technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This rule revises the special regulations for vessel quotas and operating requirements for cruise ships, tour vessels, charter vessels, private vessels, and passenger ferries within Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. The rule implements the related final environmental impact statement completed in 2003 for vessel management in the park and preserve. This rule also makes nonsubstantive technical reorganizational changes for all of part 13. The part 13 reorganization, while not included in the proposed rule, is a result of comments received regarding the complexity of the Glacier Bay regulations specifically, as well as comments received previously for various rulemaking documents concerning the organization of part 13 generally.

DATES: This rule is effective on January 2, 2007.
