                temporary special local regulations for certain waters of the Choptank
                River that was to have been in effect on July 25, 2020 and July 26,
                2020 to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters
                located at Cambridge, MD during a high-speed power boat racing event.
                The proposed rule is being withdrawn because it is no longer necessary.

                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
                Background
                 On May 6, 2020, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking
                entitled ``Special Local Regulation; Choptank River, Hambrooks Bay,
                Cambridge, MD'' in the Federal Register (85 FR 26903). The rulemaking
                concerned was proposing to establish temporary special local
                regulations for certain waters of the Choptank River in Cambridge, MD
                on July 25, 2020 and July 26, 2020. This action was necessary to
                provide for the safety of life on these waters during a high-speed
                power boat racing event. This rulemaking would have prohibited persons
                and vessels from entering the regulated area unless authorized by the
                Captain of the Port Maryland-National Capital Region or a designated
                representative.
                Withdrawal
                 The proposed rule is being withdrawn due to a regulated area no
                longer being necessary following a cancellation of the high-speed power
                boat racing event by the event sponsor.
                Authority
                 We are issuing this notice of withdrawal under the authority of 46
                U.S.C. 70034.
                 Dated: June 5, 2020.
                Joseph B. Loring,
                Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port Sector Maryland-National
                Capital Region.
