From Our Friends at NACO:
"We ask that you fax a request yourselves asking to have the House version match the Senate version so that we can do away with this unnecessary burden."
NACO's Letter to Coast Guard
Re: SEC. 302. CLARIFICATION OF LOGBOOK AND ENTRY REQUIREMENTS.
"The 2010 Coast Guard Authorization Act included a new requirement for USCG Inspected Passenger carrying vessels to provide and keep onboard new logbooks to include a dozen types of entries from maintaining crew working hours to providing injury and damage reports. These logbooks were intended for vessels on an international voyage and travel from an Atlantic to Pacific port but the language was applied to all USCG COI Passenger vessels. The 2010 requirement created an unnecessary and burdensome regulation for small family business operations and the USCG has yet to implement rulemaking on the 2010 Act."
