OMB Receives CG TWIC Reader Rule

On Friday the Office of Management and Budget announced that it had received the Coast Guards notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for the long awaited TWIC Reader Rule. This rule has been held up for a number of reasons including delays in starting and finishing the TSA TWIC Reader pilot program.

As I noted in an earlier blog I would suspect that it will be sometime after the first of the year when OMB approves this NPRM. Because of the slow pace of the rule making process it is likely that the final rule on this will not go into effect until sometime in 2014.
