On April 29, 2010, the Federal Maritime Commission issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), which appeared in the Federal Register on May 7, 2010, proposing a new exemption for non-vessel- operating common carriers agreeing to negotiated rate arrangements from certain provisions and requirements of the Shipping Act of 1984 and certain provisions and requirements of the Commission's regulations. The Commission will hold a public meeting to receive oral comments and allow participants to field questions from the Commission concerning the proposed rule.
