A. Regulatory History and Information

On February 11, 2013, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan Zone in the Federal Register (2013-02955). We received 4 comments on the proposed rule. All of the 4 comments received were from event organizers, detailing minor changes to the date, time, or location of the event listed in the NPRM. These comments are addressed specifically within this final rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held.

B. Basis and Purpose

This rule will amend 33 CFR 165.929, Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan zone. Specifically, this rule will remove 1 permanent safety zone, revise the location and/or enforcement period of 11 others, and add 3 permanent safety zones for annually recurring events.

Changes to existing safety zones in 33 CFR 165.929 correlate to changes to annual marine events for which these safety zones are established. Event organizers report changes to annual marine events to the Coast Guard, and in light of these reports, the Coast Guard adjusts the position and/or enforcement period of the established safety zones to ensure that vessels and persons are protected from the specific hazards of these marine events. Such hazards include obstructions to the waterway, collisions among spectators and event participants, and falling debris. Six of the 11 revisions to the location and/or enforcement period of safety zones concerned reported changes to annually occurring fireworks displays. Additionally, the Coast Guard was informed by one Event Organizer that a fireworks display listed in 33 CFR 165.929 would no longer take place. For this reason, the removal of its accompanying safety zone was necessary.

The Coast Guard also added three new safety zones for events that have been reported as recurring in the Lake Michigan Zone. The last three entries within this rule have been added for races in the Chicago, IL area and on Spring Lake, MI. For the reader's convenience, we have republished the revised 33 CFR 165.929 in its entirety.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Final Rule

Four comments were received regarding the safety zones listed within the NPRM. Each comment called for a minor position or time change to what was listed in the NPRM. In support for amending the event as listed in the NPRM, the Coast Guard considered that making minor edits to the times and locations would both provide the public with the most accurate information, and protect the public from the hazards associated with each event.

The first comment received regarded 33 CFR 165.929(37). The comment was from the organizer of the event for which the safety zone was written—Celebrate Americafest/Fire over the Fox. This event has historically involved both a fireworks display and a ski show. The event organizer commented that the safety zone, as written in the NPRM, would need to be extended 1300 feet to the southwest and enforced for two hours in the early afternoon on the day of the event. To ensure the safety of the Celebrate Americafest/Fire over the Fox event in its entirety, the language of 33 CFR 165.929(37) was amended to reflect these changes. The language of 33 CFR 165.929(37) was also amended to reflect the times and locations of the safety zone for ski show and fireworks.

The second comment received regarded 33 CFR 165.929(16). The comment was from the organizer of the event for which the safety zone was written—Freedom Festival Fireworks. The event organizer commented by sending a picture to show the launch position of the fireworks; this position differed from what had been listed in the NPRM for the event. This new position was only 650 feet south of its position within the NPRM. The language of 33 CFR 165.929(16) was Start Printed Page 20455amended to show the accurate position from which the fireworks would be launched.

The third comment received regarded 33 CFR 165.929(6). The comment was from the organizer of the event for which the safety zone was written—Michigan Super Boat Grand Prix. The event organizer commented that, due to scheduling concerns, the addition of a rain date was needed. Furthermore, the organizer submitted a picture of the race course. The race course extended approximately 900 feet farther to the southwest than was currently covered by the safety zone within the NPRM. The language of 33 CFR 165.929(6) was amended to allow the safety zone to accommodate for the length of the race course. An amendment was also made to include a rain date.

The fourth comment received regarded 33 CFR 165.929(22). The comment was from the organizer of the event for which the safety zone was written—Independence Day Fireworks; Saugatuck, MI. The event organizer commented that the launch site for the fireworks would take place in the middle of Kalamazoo Lake. This new launch site was approximately 1100 feet north of the position described in the NPRM. The language of 33 CFR 165.929(22) was amended so that the safety zone will accommodate the new position of the fireworks barge in the middle of Lake Kalamazoo.

D. Discussion of Rule

The safety zones in this rule are necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and people during annual marine events in the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan area of responsibility. Although this rule will remain in effect year round, the safety zones within it will be enforced only immediately before, during, and after events that pose a hazard to the public, and only upon notice by the Captain of the Port.

The Captain of the Port Lake Michigan will notify the public that the zones in this proposal are or will be enforced by all appropriate means to the affected segments of the public including publication in the Federal Register as practicable, in accordance with 33 CFR 165.7(a). Such means of notification may also include, but are not limited to, Broadcast Notice to Mariners or Local Notice to Mariners. The Captain of the Port will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the public when enforcement of the safety zone established by this section is cancelled.

All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the designated representative. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan, or his designated representative. The Captain of the Port or his designated representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16.

E. Regulatory Analysis

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.

1. 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. It is not “significant” under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this rule is not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The safety zones created by this rule will be relatively small and enforced for relatively short time. Also, each safety zone is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. Furthermore, each safety zone has been designed to allow vessels to transit unrestricted to portions of the waterways not affected by the safety zones. Thus, restrictions on vessel movements within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through each safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port, Sector Lake Michigan. On the whole, the Coast Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the activation of these safety zones.

2. 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.

The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in any one of the below established safety zones while the safety zone is being enforced. These safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: Each safety zone in this rule will be in effect for only a few hours within any given 24 hour period. Each of the safety zones will be in effect only once per year. Furthermore, these safety zones have been designed to allow traffic to pass safely around each zone. Moreover, vessels will be allowed to pass through each zone at the discretion of the Captain of the Port, Sector Lake Michigan, or his or her designated representative.

On February 11, 2013, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled Safety Zones; Annual events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan zone in the Federal Register (2013-02955). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the impact to small entities by this rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed.

If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process.

4. 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).

5. 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 Start Printed Page 20456would 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.

6. 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 would not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

7. Taking of Private Property

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

8. 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.

9. 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 would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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.

13. 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 have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. This rule involves the establishment, disestablishment, and changing of safety zones, and thus, paragraph 34(g) of figure 2-1 in Commandant Instruction M16475.lD applies.
