Thursday, December 30, 2010

The Maritime Administration (MARAD) will conduct three public listening sessions to gather data and comments to inform the US-Flag Great Lakes Fleet Revitalization Study.

It will also be used to assess the impact of new environmental regulations on the Great Lakes fleet. Of particular interest is the likely impact of the EPA’s final emission standards for new marine diesel “Category 3” engines that come into effect in January 2012. The listening sessions will be held in Cleveland (February 15); Duluth (February 23); and Chicago (February 25). 75 Fed. Reg. 82141 (December 29, 2010).
