Board of Branch Pilots; limited branch pilot license. Removes the reference to draft or ship unit measurements as the basis for determining the vessels that individuals holding a limited branch pilot license may pilot. Effective October 1, 2006, the State Corporation Commission, which regulates fees of the licensed branch pilots, discontinued its usage of a formula that used unit terminology and instituted a formula based on gross tonnage. The change will allow the Board to use the gross tonnage terminology as the basis for determining the vessels that such individuals may pilot. Read the Bill »
