It will be available on Comcast channel 27, AT&T channel 99, and via streaming at ampmedia.org. PDF
  PR Future aeronautical charts would include a reference to overflight regulations for four West Coast national marine sanctuaries under technical changes proposed by NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. The proposed change would not create a new regulation but would clarify existing overflight regulations that have been in place for many years in the Channel Islands, Monterey Bay, Gulf of the Farallones and Olympic Coast sanctuaries.
