II. Regulatory History

The Coast Guard did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this final rule. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A), this final rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements because the changes in this final rule involve rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. Also, notice and comment procedures are unnecessary under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) because this final rule consists only of corrections and editorial, organizational, and conforming amendments; these changes will have no substantive effect on the public. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), we find that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this final rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register.

III. Basis and Purpose

Each year, the printed edition of Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is re-codified on July 1st. This final rule, which becomes effective July 7, 2014 makes technical and editorial corrections throughout Title 33. This final rule does not create any substantive requirements. This final rule is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552, 553, App. 2, 14 U.S.C. 2, 631, 632, and 633; 33 U.S.C. 471, 499; 49 U.S.C. 101, 322; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

This final rule amends various internal Coast Guard office titles and office symbols throughout Title 33. These changes reflect the nomenclature that was implemented by the Deputy Commandant for Operations 3.0 realignment, effective May 6, 2012. Functional requirements, organizations and reporting structures are not affected by this final rule.

This final rule also updates various addresses for Coast Guard offices throughout Title 33 in order to conform to new mailing addresses that came into effect upon the relocation of Coast Guard Headquarters to the Saint Elizabeths campus in 2013. For a list of each address change, see the Table of Changes in the docket for this rulemaking.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 3.05-20 to correct the location of the U.S. Coast Guard's Sector Southeastern New England office to reflect Woods Hole, MA. After the Coast Guard's sector realignment occurred in 2007, the location of Coast Guard Sector Southeastern New England was intended to be Providence, RI. However, this relocation never occurred and Sector Southeastern New England's office location remains in Woods Hole, MA.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 3.40-28 to correct the location of the U.S. Coast Guard's Sector Houston-Galveston's office to reflect Houston, TX.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 27.3, Table 1 to update statutory citations that changed as a result of recodification. 46 U.S.C. App. 1505 was recodified at 46 U.S.C. 80509; 46 U.S.C. App. 1712(a) was recodified at 46 U.S.C. 41107 and 46 U.S.C. 1805 was recodified at 46 U.S.C. 70305. This rule does not change the adjusted maximum penalty amounts contained in Table 1 of 33 CFR 27.3.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 52.21(a) by changing the title of the reviewing authority for the correction of military records to reflect the Coast Guard's transfer from the Department of Transportation to the Department of Homeland Security.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.160(c) to redefine a specific COLREGS demarcation line to reflect the updated National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) survey necessitated by the destruction of the Fire Island Inlet Breakwater Light by Hurricane Sandy.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.712 by redesignating paragraph (a) as paragraph (b). A review of the COLREGS demarcation line found that paragraphs (a) and (b) both described the Stono Inlet demarcation line, while there was no existing description of the line across Lighthouse Inlet. A new paragraph (a) is added to describe the line across Lighthouse Inlet using the latitude and longitude coordinates for aids to navigation depicted by NOAA on charts. Additionally, new paragraph (b) now Start Printed Page 38423reflects a change to the aids to navigation in Stono Inlet because the daybeacon previously referenced has been replaced by a buoy.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.815(b) by adding the latitude and longitude coordinates for the reference points Mobile Point Light and Dauphin Island Channel Light 1 and by removing “No.” from the title of the Dauphin Island Channel Light 1. This change conforms the name to the one published in the Light List.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.1420 by adding the latitude and longitude coordinates for the reference points for Barbers Point Light and Diamond Head Light.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.1430 by adding the latitude and longitude coordinates for the reference point Pyramid Rock Light.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.1440 to update the name of a light listed as a reference point. The light previously referred to as “Hanapepe Light” is now referred to as “Puolo Point Light.” The name change reflects the updated name in the Light List.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.1450 to add the longitude and latitude coordinates for the reference point Kukii Point Light. It also corrects the reference to “Nawiliwili Harbor Breakwater Light” because that light has been disestablished. The new text has been updated to read as follows: “A line drawn from the seaward extremity of Nawiliwili Harbor breakwater to 21°57′23.8″ N., 159°20′52.7″ W. (Kukii Point Light).”

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.1460 to update the names of the lights listed as reference points. The lights previously listed as “Kahului Harbor Entrance East Breakwater Light” and “Kahului Harbor Entrance West Breakwater Light” are amended to reflect the names listed in the Light List, which are “Kahului Entrance Breakwater Light 4” and “Kahului Entrance Breakwater Light 3.” We are also amending 33 CFR 80.1460 by adding the latitude and longitude coordinates for Kahului Entrance Breakwater Light 4 and Kahului Entrance Breakwater Light 3.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 80.1470 to add the longitude and latitude coordinates for the reference point Kawaihae Light.

This final rule makes a spelling correction to 33 CFR 89.25(h). Previously, “Chattahoochee” was misspelled. This final rule corrects the spelling of this river.

This final rule corrects the authority citation in 33 CFR 110.1 by deleting the references to 33 U.S.C. 2030 and 2035, which were repealed in 2004 by Section 303(a) of the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108-293). The authority to issue Inland Navigation Rules can be found in section 3 of the Inland Navigational Rules Act of 1980, as amended by section 303(b) of the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2004 (33 U.S.C. 2071). We are also amending 33 CFR 110.1(a) by removing the repealed statutes and inserting the correct citation to the Inland Navigation Rules, 33 CFR Chapter I, Subchapter E.

This final rule removes 33 CFR 110.25(f) and its Note, which are duplicative of 33 CFR 110.26.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 110.59(c) to reflect the correct coordinates of the Northport Harbor anchorage in Eastern Long Island, NY. The previous language in this paragraph erroneously identified coordinates that are outside of Northport Harbor. We are also adding a minor clarification to the coordinates by indicating north latitude and west longitude.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 110.72d to represent latitude and longitude coordinates in a format that includes degrees, minutes, and seconds.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 117.35 by replacing the word “closure” with the word “deviation” because not all changes are closures. Requests for temporary changes to the operating schedule of a drawbridge require the approval of the cognizant District Commander. The word “deviation” is replacing the word “closure” to reflect the requirement in the regulation that all changes, including closures, must be authorized.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 117.143 by adding the commonly used name “Eight Mile Road” to describe the San Joaquin County Highway Bridge.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 117.233 by updating the name of the bridge referenced in this section because of a change in ownership. The bridge formerly known as the “Conrail Bridge” in this section is now named the “Norfolk Southern Railroad Bridge.”

This final rule amends 33 CFR 117.243(a)(3) by updating the telephone number that owners or operators of vessels can call to get train operational information.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 117.531(b) by changing the mile mark location from “mile 3.5” to “mile 1.9.” Under the standard convention for bridge marking locations on U.S. rivers, mile markers reflect the distance to the mouth of the applicable river. The “3.5”mile mark previously listed reflected the distance to the ocean. The corrected “1.9” mile mark reflects the distance to the mouth of the Piscataqua River.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 117.531(c) by changing the mile mark location from “mile 4.0” to “mile 2.5.” Under the standard convention for bridge markings locations on U.S. rivers, mile markers reflect the distance to the mouth of the applicable river. The “4.0” mile mark previously listed reflected the distance to the ocean. The corrected “2.5” mile mark reflects the distance to the mouth of the Piscataqua River.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 117.997(a)(11) by updating the telephone numbers that owners or operators of vessels can call to get bridge operational information.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 118.3(c) by updating the address of the Federal Highway Administration.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 126.21(d) to correct a citation. The reference to 33 CFR 126.15(g) for the use of maintenance stores and supplies is incorrect. 33 CFR 126.15(g) does not exist. We have amended this section by removing the incorrect citation and inserting the correct citation: 33 CFR 126.15(b)(5).

This final rule amends 33 CFR 155.1030(i)(1) by reinserting paragraph (c)(11) and removing paragraph (c)(9). In the 2013 printed edition of Title 33 CFR, paragraph (c)(11) was properly included in this section. On September 30, 2013, however, a final rule was published that amended 33 CFR 155.1030(i)(1) through (3) solely for the purpose of authorizing electronic copies of Vessel Response Plans (78 FR 60100, 60122). Because of an administrative error in that final rule, paragraph (c)(11) was unintentionally removed from 33 CFR 155.1030(i)(1), and we are correcting that error by reinserting (c)(11). We are also removing paragraph(c)(9) from 33 CFR 155.1030(i)(1) because that specific section of the VRP plan is a requirement for unmanned tank barges and is already included under 33 CFR 155.1030(i)(2).

This final rule amends 33 CFR 155.1070(a)(2) by removing the words “and to document the annual review required by this paragraph (a).” When this final rule was published on September 30, 2013 (78 FR 60100, 60105), the Coast Guard explained that it was removing the requirement pertaining to the reporting of annual reviews from 33 CFR 155.1070(a), consistent with 33 CFR 151.28(h) and 155.5070(a). Because of an administrative error, however, the regulation was not amended as described. We are correcting that error in this final rule by removing the words “and to document the annual review required by this paragraph (a).”Start Printed Page 38424

This final rule amends 33 CFR 155.5020(5)(i) by removing the word “and” and adding the word “or” in its place. 33 CFR 155.5020 provides a list of definitions applicable to 33 CFR Subpart J. Changing “and” to “or” under the definition for “Contract or other approved means” provided in 33 CFR 155.5020(5)(i) more accurately reflects the substance of the regulations contained in 33 CFR Subpart J. For example, in 33 CFR 155.5020(5)(ii)-(v), the regulation uses the phrase “petroleum oils as fuel or cargo.” And, in 33 CFR 155.5035(i)(7),(9), the regulation uses the phrase “petroleum oils as fuel or cargo.” Finally, in 33 CFR 155.5050(e)(1) and (f),(l),(m),(n), the regulation uses the phrase “petroleum oil as fuel or cargo.” We are, therefore, correcting 33 CFR 155.5020(5)(i) by removing the word “and” and adding the word “or” in its place.

This final rule amends the table for 33 CFR 155.5050(p) by removing the word “and” and adding the word “or” in its place. 33 CFR 155.5050(p) is a table that summarizes the VRP required response resources for nontank vessels carrying groups I through IV petroleum oil. Changing the table's first column header from “Nontank vessel's fuel and cargo oil capacity” to “Nontank vessel's fuel or cargo oil capacity” more accurately reflects the substance of the regulations contained in 33 CFR Subpart J. For example, in 33 CFR 155.5020(5)(ii)-(v), the regulation uses the phrase “petroleum oils as fuel or cargo.” And, in 33 CFR 155.5035(i)(7),(9), the regulation uses the phrase “petroleum oils as fuel or cargo.” Finally, in 33 CFR 155.5050(e)(1) and (f),(l),(m),(n), the regulation uses the phrase “petroleum oil as fuel or cargo.” The table's first column header is, therefore, incorrect. We are correcting it in this rule by removing the word “and” and adding the word “or” in its place.

This final rule amends the Table in 33 CFR 161.12(c) to correct a typographical error in the longitude position for the waters east and north of a line drawn from the southern tangent of Sakonnet Point, Rhode Island. The text has been updated with the correct longitude coordinate as follows: “longitude 71°11.70′ W.”

This final rule amends 33 CFR 161.12(d)(5). Because of a clerical error, this section mistakenly cites to 160.203 for the definition of “hazardous condition.” This section, however, does not include a definition for “hazardous condition.” Therefore, we are correcting that error to reflect that the citation for the definition of “hazardous condition” is found in 33 CFR 160.204.

This final rule revises 33 CFR 161.55(c) by separating the requirements pertaining to “meeting and overtaking” and those for “crossing or operating” into separate sub-paragraphs. By restructuring the regulation into separate sub-paragraphs, we are making it easier for users of VTS Puget Sound to understand that “meeting and overtaking within 2,000 yards” and “crossing or operating within 2,000 yards” are to be treated separately. These changes are editorial and do not alter the VTS Special Area Operating Requirements prescribed in 33 CFR 161.55(c).

This final rule amends 33 CFR 165.117(a)(3)(ii) to include the geographic coordinates forming the loci for the regulated navigation areas, safety and security zones for Neptune Deepwater Port. The Coast Guard published an NPRM on April 1, 2010 (75 FR 16370), that proposed establishing regulated navigation areas and safety and security zones around the recently constructed Neptune Deepwater Port Facility. No comments or suggestions were made to the proposed rule, and on August 20, 2010 (75 FR 51374), the Coast Guard published a final rule. Due to an administrative error, however, 33 CFR 165.117(a)(3)(ii) was not incorporated into regulation. We are correcting that error by inserting the geographic coordinates forming the loci for the regulated navigation areas, safety and security zones for Neptune Deepwater Port, at 33 CFR 165.117(a)(3)(ii).

This final rule amends 33 CFR 165.122(b)(6) by removing the citation to the repealed statutes and inserting the correct citation to the Inland Navigation Rules.

This final rule amends the Table to 33 CFR 165.151 to correct the order of coordinates included in the Table.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 165.813(b)(5) by updating the telephone number that vessel operators can call to request permission to enter or operate inside moving security zones around cruise ships in the ports of Houston or Galveston, Texas.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 165.814(b)(3) by updating the telephone number that vessel operators can call to request permission to enter or operate inside certain security zones in the Captain of the Port Houston—Galveston zone of responsibility.

This rule redesignates 33 CFR 165.1201 as 33 CFR 165.1188. In 2013, this regulation was published with an incorrect section number within 33 CFR Subpart F. Because there is no Twelfth Coast Guard District, it is necessary to redesignate the regulation within the Eleventh Coast Guard District's portion of 33 CFR Subpart F.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 165.1319 by updating the name from “Safety Zone Regulations, Seafair Blue Angels Air Show Performance, Seattle, WA” to “Safety Zone Regulations, Seafair Air Show Performance, Seattle, WA.”

This final rule amends 33 CFR 167.1322(b)(8) by formatting the description of the precautionary area “ND” so that it matches the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) description of the same precautionary area, as set forth in IMO COLREG .2/Circ. 51 of May 31, 2002. This rule does not change the coordinates themselves; it merely connects the first and last coordinate by using the shoreline as a natural boundary.

This final rule amends 33 CFR 183.5 by updating the address for the American Boat and Yacht Council, Inc. We are also amending this section by replacing the text “Naval Publications Forms Center, Customer Service—Code 1052, 5801 Tabor Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19120” with “Military Specifications and Standards, Standardization Documents Order Desk, Building 4D, 700 Robbins Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19111-5094; https://assist.daps.dla.mil/​quicksearch/​.

V. Regulatory Analyses

We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes or E.O.s.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

Executive Orders 12866 (“Regulatory Planning and Review”) and 13563 (“Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review”) direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. The provisions of this final rule are technical and non-substantive; they will have no substantive effect on the public and will impose no additional costs. This final rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of E.O. 12866 as supplemented by E.O. 13563, and does not require an assessment of potential Start Printed Page 38425costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of E.O. 12866. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not reviewed it under E.O. 12866.

B. Small Entities

Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), rules exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act are not required to examine the impact of the rule on small entities. Nevertheless, 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.

There is no cost to this final rule, and we do not expect it to have an impact on small entities because the provisions of this rule are technical and non-substantive. It will have no substantive effect on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, 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. 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. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please consult Mr. Paul Crissy by phone at 202-372-1093 or via email at Paul.H.Crissy@uscg.mil. 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.

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).

D. 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).

E. Federalism

A rule has implications for federalism under E.O. 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 have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in E.O. 13132.

F. 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 1 year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

This final rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under E.O. 12630 (“Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights”).

H. Civil Justice Reform

This final rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of E.O. 12988 (“Civil Justice Reform”), to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

We have analyzed this final rule under E.O. 13045 (“Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks”). This final 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.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

This final rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 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.

K. Energy Effects

We have analyzed this final rule under E.O. 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 E.O. 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of OMB's 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 E.O. 13211.

L. Technical Standards

The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (15 U.S.C. 272 Note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the OMB, 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 final rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

M. 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 (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 is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2, figure 2-1, paragraphs (34)(a) and (b) of the Instruction. This final rule involves regulations that are editorial or procedural, or that concern internal agency functions or organizations. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are Start Printed Page 38426available in the docket for this final rule where indicated under ADDRESSES.

Notes:
1 Maritime Mobile Service Identifier (MMSI) is a unique nine-digit number assigned that identifies ship stations, ship earth stations, coast stations, coast earth stations, and group calls for use by a digital selective calling (DSC) radio, an INMARSAT ship earth station or AIS. AIS requirements are set forth in §§ 161.21 and 164.46 of this subchapter. The requirements set forth in §§ 161.21 and 164.46 of this subchapter apply in those areas denoted with an MMSI number, except for Louisville and Los Angeles/Long Beach.
2 In the event of a communication failure, difficulties or other safety factors, the Center may direct or permit a user to monitor and report on any other designated monitoring frequency or the bridge-to-bridge navigational frequency, 156.650 MHz (Channel 13) or 156.375 MHz (Channel 67), to the extent that doing so provides a level of safety beyond that provided by other means. The bridge-to-bridge navigational frequency, 156.650 MHz (Ch. 13) is used in certain monitoring areas where the level of reporting does not warrant a designated frequency.
3 All geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) are expressed in North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83).
4 Some monitoring areas extend beyond navigable waters. Although not required, users are strongly encouraged to maintain a listening watch on the designated monitoring frequency in these areas. Otherwise, they are required to maintain watch as stated in 47 CFR 80.148.Start Printed Page 38442
5 In addition to the vessels denoted in Section 161.16 of this chapter, requirements set forth in subpart B of 33 CFR part 161 also apply to any vessel transiting VMRS Buzzards Bay required to carry a bridge-to-bridge radiotelephone by part 26 of this chapter.
6 Until otherwise directed, full VTS services will not be available in the Calcasieu Channel, Calcasieu River Channel, and the ICW from MM 260 to MM 191. Vessels may contact Port Arthur Traffic on the designated VTS frequency to request advisories, but are not required to monitor the VTS frequency in this sector.
7 A Cooperative Vessel Traffic Service was established by the United States and Canada within adjoining waters. The appropriate Center administers the rules issued by both nations; however, enforces only its own set of rules within its jurisdiction. Note, the bridge-to-bridge navigational frequency, 156.650 MHz (Ch. 13), is not so designated in Canadian waters, therefore users are encouraged and permitted to make passing arrangements on the designated monitoring frequencies.
