Docket No. EP 743
WATER CARRIER TARIFF FILING PROCEDURES
Decided: January 29, 2019
In a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) served on December 21, 2018, the Board proposed new procedures for water carriers operating in the noncontiguous domestic trade to electronically publish, file, and keep tariffs available for public inspection. Notice of the proposed rulemaking was published in the Federal Register on December 26, 2018 (83 Fed. Reg. 66,229).
In the NPRM, the Board directed comments to be submitted by January 25, 2019, and reply comments to be submitted by February 25, 2019. During the partial shutdown of the Federal government from December 22, 2018, through January 25, 2019, all deadlines requiring the submission of material to the Board, including the deadlines in this proceeding, were tolled. Comments on the NPRM will be due by February 4, 2019, and reply comments will be due by March 4, 2019.
It is ordered:
1. Comments are due by February 4, 2019. Reply comments are due by March 4, 2019.
2. Notice of this decision will be published in the Federal Register.
3. This decision is effective on the date of service.
