The California Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding the tank vessel escort
requirements for Port Hueneme. The major purpose of the proposal is to make these regulations consistent with those for other California ports. No additional costs for the regulated community are anticipated, based on this proposal. OSPR also issued the Draft Amendment and the Initial Statement of Reasons. Comments on the proposal should be submitted by October 26, 2004. (HK Law).
