This week, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released its semi-annual regulatory
which outlines all current and projected rulemakings, existing regulations,
and completed actions of DHS and its components. The regulatory agenda
indicates that the Coast Guard expects to update its Maritime Transportation Security
