A Federal Register Notice was published April 16, 2013 by the DHS, the Coast Guard and the DoT, Research and Innovative Technology Administration. The notice requests public comment concerning the future of the Nationwide Differential GPS (NDGPS) service. See:

http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-04-16/html/2013-08844.htm

A summary says:

quote:
The Coast Guard and the Research and Innovative Technology
Administration are analyzing the current and future user needs and
requirements of the Nationwide Differential Global Positioning System
(NDGPS). The NDGPS was designed to broadcast signals to improve the
accuracy and integrity of the Global Positioning System (GPS) derived
positions for surface transportation, as well as other civil,
commercial, scientific, and homeland security applications. This
analysis will be used to support future NDGPS investment decisions by
the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of
Transportation beyond fiscal year 2016. This notice seeks comments from
Federal, state, and local agencies, as well as other interested members
of the public regarding current and future usage of the NDGPS, the need
to retain the NDGPS, the impact if NDGPS signals were not available,
alternatives to the NDGPS, and alternative uses for the existing NDGPS
infrastructure.
