NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

On November 9, 2011, the Coast Guard enacted the current version of 33 CFR 165.118, which establishes several permanent safety zones throughout Captain of the Port Boston zone. On June 14, 2013 the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (78 FR 35798), proposing to amend 33 CFR 165.118 by establishing three new permanent safety zones. No comments were received. No public meeting was requested, and none was held.

B. Basis and Purpose

The legal basis for the temporary rule is 33 U.S.C. 1226, 1231, 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; Pub. L. 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory safety zones.

Recently, the Coast Guard Captain of the Port, Sector Boston, determined that public safety requires that a safety zone be enforced around three maritime events that recur annually in Captain of the Port Boston zone. Specifically, the Captain of the Port, Sector Boston, determined that a safety zone is required around the Hull Youth Football Carnival Fireworks, the Boston Harbor Triathlon, and the Boston Harbor Sharkfest Swim.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

For the reasons stated above, the Captain of the Port, Sector Boston, is establishing three new permanent safety zones in 33 CFR 165.118. These new safety zones will be listed in 33 CFR 165.118 as (6.5) Hull Youth Football Carnival Fireworks, (8.8) The Boston Start Printed Page 67029Triathlon, and (9.7) Boston Harbor Sharkfest Swim.

The Hull Youth Football Carnival Fireworks safety zone will consist of all waters within a 450-foot radius around the fireworks barge, which will be located at position 42°16.6′ N, 070°51.7′ W. This safety zone will be enforced between 9:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on the third or fourth weekend of June each year.

The Boston Triathlon safety zone will consist of all waters of Boston Inner Harbor within the following points: from 42°21.7′ N, 071°02.1′ W to 42°21.6′ N, 071°02.8′ W to 42°21.7′ N, 071°02.8′ W and then to 42°21.8′ N, 071°02.4′ W. This safety zone will be enforced between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on the second or third weekend of August each year.

The Boston Harbor Sharkfest Swim will consist of all waters of Boston Inner Harbor within the following points: from 42°21.7′ N, 071°02.1′ W to 42°21.8′ N, 071°02.4′ W to 42°21.3′ N, 071°02.9′ W and then to 42°21.3′ N, 071°02.3′ W. This safety zone will be enforced between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on a Saturday during the second or third weekend of September each year.

D. 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 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) Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order.

The Coast Guard has determined that this rule is not a significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The three new safety zones established by this rule will be enforced for relatively short periods. Also, vessels may enter or pass through the affected waterway with the appropriate permission. Additionally, notification of the safety zone will be made to mariners through the local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of enforcement.

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 entitles 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 certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This final rule would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: owners or operators of vessels intending to transit, fish, or anchor in the areas where the listed annual recurring events are being held. The final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the same reasons outlined in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above. The Coast Guard received no comments from the Small Business Administration about this rule.

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 you believe that this 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 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 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 it 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 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 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 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 Start Printed Page 67030with 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 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 concluded 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 of three new permanent safety zones and thus, is categorically excluded from further review under, paragraph 34(g) of figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist and a 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.
