Notice of proposed rulemaking.


The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a temporary safety zone for certain waters of the Columbia River. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of participants and the maritime public during a high-speed boat race.

We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
