SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 31, 2014, the Coast Guard 
published a final rule titled ``Dry Cargo Residue Discharges in the 
Great Lakes.'' \1\ In this final rule, the Coast Guard implemented new 
requirements related to the operation of U.S. and foreign vessels 
carrying bulk dry cargo such as limestone, iron ore, and coal on the 
U.S. waters of the Great Lakes, and the operation of U.S. bulk dry 
cargo vessels anywhere on the Great Lakes.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Our final rule delayed the effective date of 33 CFR 151.66(b)(5) 
because it contains collection of information provisions that require 
approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520. On August 5, 
2014, OMB approved the collection and assigned OMB Control Number 1625-
0072. Accordingly, we announce that section 151.66(b)(5) is enforceable 
from September 15, 2014. The approval for this collection of 
information expires on August 31, 2017. This action completes the 
rulemaking associated with RIN 1625-AA89 and USCG-2004-19621.
    This document is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a).

    Dated: September 5, 2014.
