I. Regulatory History

We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under both 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (b)(B), the Coast Guard finds this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve agency organization and practices, and good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM for all revisions in the rule because they are all non-substantive changes. This rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments. These changes will have no substantive effect on the public; therefore, it is unnecessary to publish an NPRM. 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 less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.

II. Background and Purpose

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 19, 2008, makes technical and editorial corrections throughout Title 33. This rule does not create any substantive requirements.

III. Discussion of Rule

This rule updates Coast Guard headquarters and field office designations, telephone numbers, and Web site addresses. These updates are non-substantive and are located throughout 33 CFR Parts 1, 62, 66, 84, 101, 104, 105, 114, 116, 118, 135, 151, 153, 154, 155, 156, 157, 159, 162, 164, 165, 174, 179, 181, 183, and 187. Sections 80.505, 80.715, 80.805, 101.415, 126.3, 157.37, 162.75, 162.90, 162.220, and 166.200 are amended to correct typographical and grammatical errors. The phrase “public hearing” has been amended to “public meeting” in parts 115, 116, and 118. This change has been made so as to better describe the public's role in commenting on proposed bridge actions. In the past, the Coast Guard has used the term “public hearing” to describe the informal process which allows the public an opportunity to voice their opinion regarding Coast Guard proposed bridge actions. We have noted that the use of the term “hearing” may cause some confusion among members of the public. Therefore, in an effort to clarify the public's role regarding proposed bridge actions, we have removed the word “hearing” and replaced it with “meeting”. Changing the wording from “hearing” to “meeting” has no substantive effect on how the Coast Guard currently announces or gathers public opinion or other information regarding bridge matters, nor will it change the substance of the public's involvement in the process. Lastly, in sections 153.103, 154.1016, 154.1216, and 165.100, the reference to the definition of “Navigable waters” is updated to accurately reflect where the definition may be referenced within the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).

Additional amendments to parts 1, 40, 66, 80, 100, 101, 104, 110, 114, 117, 151, 155, 157, 158, 161, 162, 165, 166, 173, and 187 are as follows:

33 CFR 1.05. In § 1.05(d), we have updated the delegation of rulemaking authority from the Commandant to the Assistant Commandant for Marine Safety, Security, and Stewardship (CG-5), the Director of the National Pollution Fund (Director, NPFC), and the Chief, Office of Regulations and Administrative Law (CG-0943). In paragraph (e) of this section, we have removed the authority previously delegated to District Commanders and associated with the establishment of special local regulations and added it to paragraph (f) as delegated authority to Captains of the Port. In § 1.05-10, we have removed the word “project” and replaced it with “documents” so as to clearly identify those rulemaking documents that must be approved by the Commandant. In § 1.05-20(c), we have removed the word “file” and replaced it with “docket” so as to better identify how the public may access our rulemaking documents. Lastly, in § 1.05-25, we have updated the references to Web sites where docket information for Coast Guard rulemaking projects may be obtained, and we have provided brief descriptions on how to access those documents.

33 CFR 40.1. This section is updated to inform the public of the forms necessary for application to the Coast Guard Academy.

33 CFR 66.01-45. We removed a reference that does not exist in the CFR and replaced it with the correct reference.

33 CFR 80.738. We revised this section to properly identify coordinates. Previously, the Coast Guard described the location of a demarcation line by describing the location of an aid to navigation. The aids to navigation language has been removed, and we have inserted coordinates to identify the location of the demarcation line. Start Printed Page 34999

33 CFR 100.114. This section updates the location of fireworks displays within the First Coast Guard District and removes references to those fireworks displays that no longer occur.

33 CFR Part 101. The Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) references are updated in sections 101.105 and 101.510 to reflect the most current version. NVIC's are guidance documents and do not impose substantive requirements on the public.

33 CFR Part 104. Section 104.106 is updated to clearly identify which locations passengers may access on passenger vessels. Section 104.292 updates references for passenger vessels and ferries. The references were changed as a result of the Transportation Worker Identification Credential rulemaking. 72 FR 3492. The substance of the references has not changed.

33 CFR Part 110. The geographic coordinates in § 110.60 have been revised to allow mariners to use the North American Datum of 1983. Additionally, many of the coordinates previously listed in § 110.60 have been relocated to a new § 110.59 to better align the areas of responsibility within the First Coast Guard District.

Section 110.155 is corrected to accurately identify coordinates using NAD 83. Sections 110.245 and 110.250 are amended to properly identify Coast Guard Sectors and Captains of the Port, respectively.

33 CFR Part 114. Section 114.01 has been amended to delete all references to legal authority within the regulatory text. Those authorities have been added to the “Authorities” section of this part.

33 CFR Part 117. In this part, we have updated the name of a bridge because the city changed the name.

33 CFR Part 151. In §§ 151.05, 151.09, 151.30, and 151.66 the references to the definitions for “Oceangoing ship”, “internal waters”, and “navigable waters” are updated to accurately reflect where those definitions can be referenced within the CFR. The definitions have not changed.

In § 151.06, we have inserted new “special areas.” In this instance, special areas are identified by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The special areas added to this section are in international waters and will not be enforced by the Coast Guard. Publication of these special areas in this final rule will alert mariners of their existence if they travel internationally. Further, these special areas are not enforced by the IMO at this time. When the IMO elects to enforce these special areas, the Coast Guard will initiate a separate rulemaking to alert the public. In the appendix to subpart D of this part, we have removed the reference to “U.S. EEZ” and replaced it with “waters of the United States”. The regulatory text associated with this appendix requires mariners to comply with certain regulations if operating within the “waters of the United States”, and the appendix erroneously conveys that mariners must comply with certain regulations if operating within waters of the EEZ. This amendment will not create a new burden on the public as it merely aligns the appendix with the regulatory text.

In § 151.13, we have updated the list of “special areas.”

In § 151.43, the reference to 46 CFR 153.906 has been deleted because it does not exist.

In § 151.49, the duplicate reference to “isoppropylcyclohexane” has been removed.

33 CFR Part 155. The authorities section for this part is updated to accurately reflect the applicable authorities because a past rulemaking (68 FR 37738) inadvertently removed some of the applicable authorities for this part. The deleted authorities remain applicable, and as such, they are reinserted. The reinserted authorities do not create a new substantive burden on the public.

Sections 155.1025, 155.1030, and 155.1065 are amended to reflect updated references to the International Convention for the Prevention of Oil Pollution from Ships Annex I. The changes to the references do not create substantive burdens on the public. Section 155.1050 is updated to add the phrase “emergency lightering” in order to be consistent with other sections within this part. No new requirement is placed on the public with the insertion of this phrase.

33 CFR Part 157. In § 157.08, the reference to the term “territorial sea” is updated to accurately reflect where the definition may be referenced. The definition has not changed. Additionally, a few references in Appendix A, B, and C have been updated to accurately reflect updates to the regulations found in Annex I of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973 as modified by the Protocol of 1978. These updates reflect a consolidation of requirements, rather than new requirements, and are non-substantive in nature.

33 CFR 158.120. The reference to the definition of “Oceangoing ship” is updated to accurately reflect where the definition may be referenced. The definition has not changed.

33 CFR Part 161. We revised the authorities section because it erroneously identified the codified section for “Civil penalty” as 46 U.S.C. 70117 rather than 46 U.S.C. 70119. In § 161.12, we amended the frequency monitoring area mariners may use to contact the Coast Guard. The mariners have been using the updated frequency monitoring area for years, and as such, the change will reflect what has been in practice for the past several years.

33 CFR Part 162. In §§ 162.15(a) and 162.200(a), coordinates are corrected to accurately identify North and West latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates; respectively. Additionally, in §§ 162.220, 162.235, and 162.270, non-substantive clarification amendments are made to these sections.

33 CFR Part 165. Several sections in this part are amended to remove regulated navigation areas that are no longer active because of event cancellation or project completion. Further, the remaining associated regulated navigation area items have been rewritten to provide clarity.

33 CFR Part 166. In paragraph (d) of this section, we added North and West designations in the chart to provide clarity.

33 CFR 173.3(g). The definition of a “State” is amended to add the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. This change is nonsubstantive as the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands has been included as an authoritative “State” for purposes of this part.

33 CFR Part 187. The definition of “approved numbering system” is amended to reflect “Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security” rather than the “Secretary of the Department of Transportation”.

IV. Regulatory Evaluation

A. Executive Order 12866

This final rule is considered to be a nonsignificant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. Additionally, we expect no economic impact as a result of this rule; as such a full regulatory assessment is unnecessary. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

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 Start Printed Page 35000owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. This rule does not require a general notice of proposed rulemaking and, therefore, is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. However, 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 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 effect 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, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce 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 at OMB 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 Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded that there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraphs (34)(a) and (b) of the Instruction from further environmental documentation because this rule involves editorial, procedural, and internal agency functions. A final “Environmental Analysis Check List” and a final “Categorical Exclusion Determination” are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.
