At question, is whether the system should be decommissioned, maintained "as is" or up-graded to an enhanced Loran system, eLoran, which could be used either as a back-up to the Global Position Satellite System, or a complimentary system to GPS.

The public is invited to submit their thoughts and comments, which must be received on or by Feb. 7. To learn how to submit those comments, visit http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/eLORAN/E6-22421.pdf, or call the U.S. Coast Guard Info line at (800) 368-5647. Source: CentralOhio.com
