II. Basis and Purpose, and Regulatory History
The United States Coast Guard is finalizing regulations for a security zone that
encompasses certain waters of the Potomac River next to the Trump National Golf Club
at Potomac Falls, VA. The Coast Guard published an interim rule, "Security Zone;
Potomac River, Montgomery County, MD" on July 10, 2017 (82 FR 31719). In
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the rule was made immediately effective.
Although immediately effective, the Coast Guard provided the public with a 30-day posteffective comment period. After reviewing the public input, the Coast Guard published a
second interim rule, "Security Zone; Potomac River, Montgomery County, MD" on
March 21, 2019 (84 FR 10420), which responded to comments received and made
modifications to the rule. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the March 2019
interim rule was made immediately effective, but the Coast Guard provided the public
3
with a 90-day post-effective comment period on the modified rule. During the comment
period on the March 2019 interim rule, which ended June 19, 2019, we received six
comments.

Now that's obscure. I mean, there's searching, and there's SEARCHING.

The reason they talk about Montgomery County is that, at this location, the river belongs to Maryland. The border is not in the middle of the river.

2. Special request: please do not go bugging the people in the office that submitted the document.

His/their job is to be the liaison between the USCG and the Federal Register. That office submits documents, regardless of content. They don't take a stand on them one way or the other.

Please? Okay?

"Many people say I'm the best golfer they've ever seen."
