Energy Effects We have analyzed this proposed 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. It has not been designated by the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guides 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 there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, we believe that this rule should be categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction, from further environmental documentation. This event establishes a safety zone therefore paragraph (34)(g) of the Instruction applies. A preliminary ‘‘Environmental Analysis Check List’’ is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. Comments on this section will be considered before we make the final decision on whether the rule should be categorically excluded from further environmental review. 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 VerDate jul<14>2003 16:28 Jul 28, 2005 Jkt 205001 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.

ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: The Corps of Engineers is amending its regulations to establish a restricted area and danger zone in Brickyard Creek (including a portion of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway), Mulligan Creek, Albergottie Creek and Salt Creek in the vicinity of the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) in Beaufort, South Carolina. The MCAS restricted area contains six sections that are contiguous to Brickyard, Albergottie and Salt Creeks, and two sections that are located on the northern border of the MCAS that encompasses Mulligan Creek. In addition, these regulations establish a restricted area in the Broad River in the vicinity of Laurel Bay Military Family Housing Area, which is associated with the Marine Corps Air Station. The purpose of these regulations is to provide effective security in the vicinity of the Marine Corps Air Station and the Laurel Bay Military Family Housing Area. EFECTIVE DATE: August 29, 2005. ADDRESSES: U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, ATTN: CECW–CO, 441 G Street, NW., Washington, DC 20314– 1000. Mr. David Olson, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Headquarters, Washington, DC at 202–761–4922, or Mr. Dean Herndon, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, at (843) 329–8044. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and Chapter XIX, of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat 892; 33 U.S.C. 3) the Corps is amending the restricted area regulations at 33 CFR 334 by adding Section 334.475, which would establish a restricted area (including eight sections) and one danger zone in the vicinity of the Marine Corps Air Station and one restricted area in the vicinity of the Laurel Bay Military Family Housing Area in Beaufort, South Carolina. The sections of the restricted area are FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\29JYR1.SGM 29JYR1 43780 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 145 / Friday, July 29, 2005 / Rules and Regulations described in detail in the regulation in paragraphs (a)(1) through (a)(9). The new danger zone is described in paragraph (a)(10). This regulation will allow the Commander, Marine Corps Air Station, Beaufort, to restrict passage of persons, watercraft, and vessels at his or her discretion in interest of National Security until such time he or she determines such restrictions may be terminated. Procedural Requirements: a. Review under Executive Order 12866. This rule is issued with respect to a military function of the Department of Defense and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply. b. Review under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Public Law 96–354), which requires the preparation of a regulatory flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (i.e., small businesses and small governments). The Corps expects that the economic impact of the establishment of this restricted area would have practically no impact on the public, no anticipated navigational hazard or interference with existing waterway traffic, and accordingly, certifies that this proposal if adopted, will have no significant economic impact on small entities. c. Review under the National Environmental Policy Act. An environmental assessment has been prepared for this action. We have concluded, based on the minor nature of the proposed additional restricted area regulations, that this action will not have a significant impact to the quality of the human environment, and preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. The environmental assessment may be reviewed at the District office listed at the end of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. d. Unfunded Mandates Act. This rule does not impose an enforceable duty among the private sector and, therefore, is not a Federal private sector mandate and is not subject to the requirements of Section 202 or 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Act. We have also found under Section 203 of the Act, that small governments will not be significantly and uniquely affected by this rulemaking.

33 CFR Part 334


United States Marine Corps Restricted Area and Danger Zone, 
Brickyard Creek and tributaries and the Broad River, Marine Corps Air 
Station, Beaufort, SC

AGENCY: United States Army Corps of Engineers, DoD.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Corps of Engineers is amending its regulations to 
establish a restricted area and danger zone in Brickyard Creek 
(including a portion of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway), Mulligan 
Creek, Albergottie Creek and Salt Creek in the vicinity of the Marine 
Corps Air Station (MCAS) in Beaufort, South Carolina. The MCAS 
restricted area contains six sections that are contiguous to Brickyard, 
Albergottie and Salt Creeks, and two sections that are located on the 
northern border of the MCAS that encompasses Mulligan Creek. In 
addition, these regulations establish a restricted area in the Broad 
River in the vicinity of Laurel Bay Military Family Housing Area, which 
is associated with the Marine Corps Air Station. The purpose of these 
regulations is to provide effective security in the vicinity of the 
Marine Corps Air Station and the Laurel Bay Military Family Housing 
Area.

EFECTIVE DATE: August 29, 2005.

ADDRESSES: U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, ATTN: CECW-CO, 441 G Street, 
NW., Washington, DC 20314-1000.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David Olson, U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers, Headquarters, Washington, DC at 202-761-4922, or Mr. Dean 
Herndon, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, at (843) 
329-8044.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of 
the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and 
Chapter XIX, of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat 892; 33 
U.S.C. 3) the Corps is amending the restricted area regulations at 33 
CFR 334 by adding Section 334.475, which would establish a restricted 
area (including eight sections) and one danger zone in the vicinity of 
the Marine Corps Air Station and one restricted area in the vicinity of 
the Laurel Bay Military Family Housing Area in Beaufort, South 
Carolina. The sections of the restricted area are

[[Page 43780]]

described in detail in the regulation in paragraphs (a)(1) through 
(a)(9). The new danger zone is described in paragraph (a)(10). This 
regulation will allow the Commander, Marine Corps Air Station, 
Beaufort, to restrict passage of persons, watercraft, and vessels at 
his or her discretion in interest of National Security until such time 
he or she determines such restrictions may be terminated.
    Procedural Requirements:
    a. Review under Executive Order 12866.
    This rule is issued with respect to a military function of the 
Department of Defense and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do 
not apply.
    b. Review under the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    This rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
(Public Law 96-354), which requires the preparation of a regulatory 
flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (i.e., small 
businesses and small governments). The Corps expects that the economic 
impact of the establishment of this restricted area would have 
practically no impact on the public, no anticipated navigational hazard 
or interference with existing waterway traffic, and accordingly, 
certifies that this proposal if adopted, will have no significant 
economic impact on small entities.
    c. Review under the National Environmental Policy Act.
    An environmental assessment has been prepared for this action. We 
have concluded, based on the minor nature of the proposed additional 
restricted area regulations, that this action will not have a 
significant impact to the quality of the human environment, and 
preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. The 
environmental assessment may be reviewed at the District office listed 
at the end of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above.
    d. Unfunded Mandates Act.
    This rule does not impose an enforceable duty among the private 
sector and, therefore, is not a Federal private sector mandate and is 
not subject to the requirements of Section 202 or 205 of the Unfunded 
Mandates Act. We have also found under Section 203 of the Act, that 
small governments will not be significantly and uniquely affected by 
this rulemaking.
