Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to Delay TWIC Reader Rule

The Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register today to delay the effective date for certain facilities affected by the final rule titled “Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Reader Requirements,” which was published in the Federal Register on Aug. 23, 2016.
