NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

On June 18, 2008, the Coast Guard put 33 CFR 165.939 into effect, which established several permanent safety zones within U.S. navigable waters under the jurisdiction of the Captain of the Port Buffalo (73 FR 28704). Specifically, twenty-six permanent safety zones were established then. These safety zones were put in place to protect the boating public from hazards associated with annually recurring fireworks displays that take place over U.S. navigable waterways. Since those twenty-six safety zones were established in June of 2008, the Coast Guard has not amended 33 CFR 165.939. On February 20, 2013, we published a NPRM entitled Safety Zones; Annual Fireworks Events in the Captain of the Port Buffalo Zone in the Federal Register (78 FR 11798). We received 0 comments on the proposed rule.

B. Basis and Purpose

As stated above, 33 CFR 165.939 currently lists twenty-six permanent safety zones within the Captain of the Port Zone Buffalo. Each of these twenty-six safety zones corresponds to an annually recurring fireworks display. During a recent review of 33 CFR 165.939, it was determined that event details for seventeen recurring fireworks displays have changed, seven additional recurring fireworks displays now require that permanent safety zones be implemented, and four permanent safety zones require disestablishment because the corresponding fireworks displays have not occurred for an extended time. In addition, it was noted that the coordinates for the safety zones corresponding with the Browns Football Half time Fireworks and the Lorain Port Fest Fireworks are formatted differently than the other safety zones. Finally, it was noted that the radius of the safety zone associated with the Lorain Port Fest Fireworks is in yards as opposed to Start Printed Page 23851feet. With the above findings in mind, the Coast Guard is amending 33 CFR 165.939 to disestablish four safety zones; to revise the enforcement period, the size, and the location of seventeen other safety zones; and to establish seven new safety zones. Likewise, this rule will amend the Browns Football Half time and the Lorain Port Fest safety zones, to include changing the format of the coordinates and the radius size from yards to feet. The Captain of the Port Buffalo has determined that this amendment is necessary to protect spectators and participants from the hazards associated with maritime fireworks displays.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

As mentioned above, no comments were received from the public in response to the NPRM that preceded this final rule. Furthermore, there were no changes made between the proposed rule and this final rule. Thus, there are no comments and no changes to discuss.

Just as was described in the NPRM, the Captain of the Port Buffalo is amending 33 CFR 165.939. Specifically, this rule will revise 33 CFR 165.939 in its entirety. This revision will include modifications made to the size, location, and enforcement period for seventeen safety zones, the disestablishment of four safety zones, two technical amendments, and the establishment of seven additional safety zones. In total, after this rule goes into effect, 33 CFR 165.939 will contain a total of twenty-nine permanent safety zones. Although this rule will remain in effect year round, the safety zones within it will be enforced only immediately before, during, and after each corresponding event.

The Captain of the Port Buffalo will use all appropriate means to notify the public when the zones in this proposal will be enforced. Consistent with 33 CFR 164.7(a), such means of notification may include, among other things, publication in the Federal Register and Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the public when enforcement of a safety zones in this section is in effect and when cancelled.

Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zones is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Buffalo or his on-scene representative. The Captain of the Port or his on-scene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16.

D. Regulatory Analyses

We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number 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, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. 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 contained in this rule will be relatively small and enforced for relatively short time. Also, the safety zones are designed to minimize their impact on navigable waters. Furthermore, the safety zones have been designed to allow vessels to transit around them. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within the particular areas are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through a safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port Buffalo.

2. Impact on Small Entities

Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have considered the impact of this rule on small entities. The Coast Guard received 0 comments from the Small Business Administration on this rule. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will 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 safety zones while the safety zone is being enforced. The below 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 Buffalo, or his or her designated representative.

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. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

This rule will not call for a 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 the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and determined that this rule 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 an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.Start Printed Page 23852

7. Taking of Private Property

This rule would 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.

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 From Environmental Health Risks

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 would 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

This rule is not a “significant energy action” under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use.

12. Technical Standards

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 made a preliminary determination 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 involves the establishment and disestablishment of safety zones and, therefore it is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a preliminary Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.
