A. Regulatory History and Information

Previously, the special local regulations listed in 33 CFR 100.501 were amended in the January 19, 2012, issue of the Federal Register (77 FR 2632). The purpose of the rulemaking was to revise the Table to 33 CFR 100.501 by adding new annual recurring marine events, modifying event dates for previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District; and deleting previously listed marine events and corresponding regulated areas that no longer occur.

The safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506 were previously amended in the March 23, 2012, issue of the Federal Register (77 FR 16932). The Coast Guard revised the list of permanent safety zones in the Table to 33 CFR 165.506, for recurring fireworks displays, by adding new locations, deleting previously established locations and modifying Start Printed Page 29630previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District.

On February 28, 2013, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled “Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Marine Events and Fireworks Displays within the Fifth Coast Guard District” in the Federal Register (78 FR 13576). We received no comments on the proposed rule.

B. Basis and Purpose

The Coast Guard is revising the list of permanent special local regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 and safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506, established for recurring marine events and fireworks displays at various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. The Fifth Coast Guard District is comprised of the land areas and U.S. navigable waters adjacent to North Carolina, Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland, Delaware and portions of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. For a detailed description of the geographical area of the district and each Coast Guard Sector—Captain of the Port Zone, please see 33 CFR 3.25.

This rulemaking updates existing regulations in an effort to reflect the most current information provided to the Fifth Coast Guard District for marine events within its area of operations.

The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of life on navigable waters during marine events, fireworks displays and provide the marine community the opportunity to comment on regulated area and safety zone locations, size, and length of time the zones will be active.

Special Local Regulations

Under 33 CFR 100.35, the Coast Guard District Commander has authority to promulgate certain special local regulations deemed necessary to ensure the safety of life on the navigable waters immediately before, during, and immediately after an approved regatta or marine parade. Currently there are 59 special local regulations that are established and enforced at various periods throughout the year that are held on an annual basis. This rule will decrease the total number of special local regulations to 51 locations for marine events within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This regulation includes events such as sailing regattas, power boat races, swim races, holiday parades, crew and other paddle craft races. The Coast Guard is revising the list of special local regulations at 33 CFR 100.501, established for various marine events, by adding 7 new annual recurring events and revising 13 previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rule also deletes 15 previously listed marine events and corresponding regulated areas that are no longer occurring.

Safety Zones

Under 33 CFR 165.23, the Coast Guard District Commander has authority to promulgate certain safety zones deemed necessary to ensure the safety of life on the navigable waters immediately before, during, and immediately after an approved fireworks displays. In this rule the Coast Guard revises the list of permanent safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506, established for fireworks displays at various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. Currently there are 74 permanent safety zones established for fireworks displays within the geographic boundaries of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rule will increase the total number of permanent safety zones to 76 locations for fireworks displays within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. The Coast Guard is revising the list of permanent safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506, established for fireworks displays, by adding 8 new locations, modifying 18 previously established locations and deleting 6 previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

The Coast Guard did not receive comments in response to the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) published in the Federal Register. Accordingly, the Coast Guard is establishing 51 Special local regulations for marine events and 76 safety zones on the specified navigable waters as listed within the Table to § 100.501 and § 165.506 respectively.

Subsequent to publication of the NPRM the Coast Guard received additional information from marine event sponsors who desire to change date(s) for their specified events. Change of dates for two marine events listed in the Table to § 100.501 were made by the Coast Guard. This change included the “TriRock Triathlon Series” race sponsored by Competitor Group Inc. and listed as (b.)3 in the Table to § 100.501 was changed to “July—3rd or 4th Saturday”. The “Swim Across the Potomac” sponsored by U.S. Open Water Swimming Association—Wave One Swimming and listed as (b.)16 in the Table to § 100.501 was changed to “June—1st Sunday”. These changes will be included in marine information broadcasts, notice to local mariners as well as event updates provided by local media outlets.

D. Discussion of the Final Rule

This rule will apply to each event listed in the attached tables to this rule. Events listed in the tables are events that recur annually in the Fifth Coast Guard District. The tables provide the event name and sponsor, as well as an approximate date and location of the event.

For each event listed in the table, an event patrol, with a Patrol Commander in charge, may be assigned. The Patrol Commander may control the movement of all vessels in the regulated area(s). When hailed or signaled by an official patrol vessel, a vessel in these areas would be required to immediately comply with the directions given. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both. The Coast Guard Patrol Commander may terminate the event, or the operation of any vessel participating in the event, at any time it is deemed necessary for the protection of life or property. Only event organizers, designated participants, and official patrol vessels will be allowed to enter a regulated area. All persons and vessels not registered with the event sponsor or organizer as participants or official patrol vessels are considered spectators. Spectators may not enter the regulated area and may be confined to a designated spectator area to view the event. Spectators may contact the Coast Guard Patrol Commander to request permission to pass through the regulated area. If permission is granted, spectators would be required to pass directly through the regulated area at safe speed and without loitering.

E. Regulatory Analyses

We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes and 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 Start Printed Page 29631or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders.

We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This finding is based on the short amount of time that vessels would be restricted from regulated areas, and the small size of these areas that are typically positioned away from high vessel traffic zones. Vessels would not be precluded from getting underway, or mooring at any piers or marinas currently located in the vicinity of the regulated areas. Advance notifications would also be made to the local maritime community by issuing Local Notice to Mariners, Marine information and facsimile broadcasts so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. Notifications to the public for most events will usually be made by local newspapers, radio and TV stations. The Coast Guard anticipates that these special local regulated areas and safety zones will only be enforced 1 to 3 times per year.

2. Impact on Small Entities

The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. 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 did not receive 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 will affect the following entities some of which may be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the regulated areas during the times these zones are enforced.

These regulated areas and safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The Coast Guard will ensure that small entities are able to operate in the areas where events are occurring to the extent possible while ensuring the safety of event participants and spectators. The enforcement period will be short in duration and, in many of the areas, vessels can transit safely around the regulated area. Generally, blanket permission to enter, remain in, or transit through these regulated areas will be given except during the period that the Coast Guard patrol vessel is present. Before the enforcement period, we will issue maritime advisories widely.

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.

Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247). 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. Protest Activities

The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. Energy Effects

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

13. Technical Standards

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

14. Environment

We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Start Printed Page 29632Management 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. This rule involves implementation of regulations under 33 CFR part 100 that apply to organized marine events on the navigable waters of the United States that may have potential for negative impact on the safety or other interest of waterway users and shore side activities in the event area. The category of water activities includes but is not limited to sail boat regattas, boat parades, power boat racing, swimming events, crew racing, and sail board racing. This section of the rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are not required for this section of the rule.

This rule involves implementation of regulations under 33 CFR part 165 that establish safety zones on navigable waters of the United States for fireworks events. These safety zones are enforced for the duration of fireworks display events. The fireworks are launched from or immediately adjacent to navigable waters of the United States. The category of activities includes fireworks launched from barges or near the shoreline that generally rely on the use of navigable waters as a safety buffer. This section of the rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.
