I. Regulatory History Back to Top

We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this rule. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) the Coast Guard finds this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, the Coast Guard finds notice and comment procedures are unnecessary under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as this rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments and these changes will have no substantive effect on the public. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register.

II. Background Back to Top

Each year, the printed edition of Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations is recodified on July 1. This rule, which becomes effective June 2, 2011, makes technical and editorial corrections throughout Title 33. This rule does not create any substantive requirements.

III. Basis and Purpose Back to Top

This rule amends 33 CFR part 1 to reflect changes in agency organization by removing § 1.01-60(a)(1)(ii) and combining § 1.01-60(a)(1)(i) with § 1.01-60(a)(1). Because the Coast Guard is no longer a component of the Department of Transportation (DOT), DOT Order 5610.1C (Procedures for Considering Environmental Impacts) no longer applies.

This rule revises 33 CFR part 27. The Coast Guard is adjusting fines and other civil monetary penalties to reflect the impact of inflation. These adjustments are made in accordance with the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, as amended by the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996, and implement the provisions of these statutes. These statutes require the Coast Guard to periodically adjust the civil monetary penalties for inflation by a method that is specifically prescribed within these statutes and which allows no discretion. The statutory method specifies the inflation measure to be used, the method for the calculation of the inflation adjustment, and the method for the numerical rounding of the results. The last inflation adjustments were made in 2010.

The changes in Civil Penalties for calendar year 2011 are based on the change in CPI-U from June 2009 to June 2010. The recorded change in CPI-U during that period was 1.05%. Because of the small change in CPI-U and the required rules for rounding, there was no change to any of the maximum penalty amounts from the previous adjustment.

This rule amends § 115.05 by replacing the term “builder” with the term “applicant” to clarify the Coast Guard's intent and make the affected provision consistent with other provisions in this section and other sections of part 115. This rule also corrects grammatical errors and details established requirements regarding the information needed on the plan sheets that accompany a bridge permit request. This rule removes § 115.50(d) because the information it provides is already explained throughout the section.

This rule amends 33 CFR part 117 to correct the names of the S14 Bridge and the S1 Bridge and to provide an updated phone number to the Kansas City Southern automated bridge. Also “Pelican Island Causeway” is removed from the title of § 117.977 and the section is redesignated to follow the alphabetical order of state waterways set out in this subpart.

This rule amends parts 135, 140, 148, and 150 of Title 33 with an organizational name change from the Minerals Management Service (MMS) to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE).

This rule amends paragraph 161.15(a) to correct a typographical error that erroneously omitted the words “within a”. The correction to the section is not substantive and does not impose any new requirement, but clarifies the meaning of this portion of part 161.

This rule amends 33 CFR part 164 to remove LORAN C from the list of options for vessel electronic position fixing devices. Removing LORAN C from 33 CFR part 164 will have no substantive effect on the public because the use of LORAN C has not been supported by the Coast Guard since February 2010, and this section is no longer applicable.

This rule amends Title 33 to correct latitude/longitude coordinates of the Galveston Entrance Anchorage Areas in part 166 and the Chesapeake Bay: Eastern approach in part 167.

This rule amends Title 33 to update internal Coast Guard office designations as well as certain personnel titles. Changes in personnel titles included in this rule are only technical revisions reflecting changes in agency procedure and organization, and do not indicate new authorities.

This rule amends Title 33 to update various physical addresses for Coast Guard offices as well as those offices' contact information.

Finally, this rule corrects non-substantive, typographical errors throughout Title 33.

IV. Regulatory Analyses Back to Top

We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. Because this rule involves non-substantive changes and internal agency practices and procedures, it will not impose any additional costs on the public.

B. Small Entities

Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term “small entities” comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000.

We estimate that the cost of this rule is minimal and should have little or no impact on small entities because the provisions of this rule are technical and non-substantive, and will have no substantive effect on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

C. Collection of Information

This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

D. Federalism

A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism.

E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or Tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

F. Taking of Private Property

This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights.

G. Civil Justice Reform

This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminates ambiguity, and reduces burden.

H. Protection of Children

We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children.

I. Indian Tribal Governments

This rule does not have Tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian Tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes.

J. Energy Effects

We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a “significant energy action” under that order because it is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211.

K. Technical Standards

The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.

This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

L. Environment

We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and haveconcluded that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2, figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(a) of the Instruction. This rule involves regulations which are editorial, procedural, such as those updating addresses or establishing application procedures. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.
