Guard personnel will be available to provide more information about the
NEPA and rulemaking processes, dry cargo residue discharges, and the
Coast Guard's proposed regulatory action, which we described in an
earlier notice (71 FR 12210, March 9, 2006). A court reporter will be
present during both the formal public comment period and the informal
open house, to record verbal comments from the public. The public will
also be able to submit written comments at any time during the meeting.
Verbal comments to the court reporter will be transcribed, and the
transcription will be placed in the public docket along with any
written statements that may be submitted during the meeting. These
comments and statements will be addressed by the Coast Guard as part of
the Environmental Impact Statement.
