Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone on the navigable waters of the Cooper River for a Fourth of July fireworks display. The safety zone extends 1000 feet in all directions from USS Yorktown located at Patriots Point, Mt. Pleasant, SC, in approximate position 32°47′27″ N 079°54′34″ W. The rule prohibits entry, anchoring, mooring or transiting within the safety zone without the permission of the Captain of the Port Charleston or his designated representative. This regulation is necessary to protect life and property on the navigable waters of the Cooper River from the hazards associated with the launching of fireworks. This rule is effective from 6 p.m. on July 4 until 12:01 a.m on July 5, 2006. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with RULES DATES: You may mail comments and related material to Commander Coast Guard Sector Charleston (WWM), 196 Tradd Street, Charleston, South Carolina 29401. This Office maintains the public docket for this rulemaking. ADDRESSES: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:29 Jun 30, 2006 Jkt 208001 Comments and material received from the public, as well as documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket, will become part of this docket and will be available for inspection or copying at Waterways Management Division 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chief Warrant Officer James J. McHugh, Sector Charleston office of Waterways Management, at (843) 724–7647. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a NPRM. The exact location and time of the event was not provided with sufficient time for public comment. Publishing a NPRM, which would incorporate a comment period before a final rule could be issued and delay the rule’s effective date, is contrary to public interest because immediate action is necessary to protect the public and waters of the United States. For the same reasons, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. The Coast Guard will issue a broadcast notice to mariners and will place Coast Guard vessels in the vicinity of this zone to advise mariners of the restriction. Background and Purpose This rule allows the Coast Guard Captain of the Port Charleston, South Carolina, to establish a safety zone in order to provide for a minimum separation set back area for the Patriots Point July Fourth Fireworks event, as recommended by the National Fire Protection Association for firework displays. The safety zone is necessary to protect the participants and spectators, and to ensure no unsafe conditions exist. Discussion of Rule The safety zone will be in effect and enforced in an area extending 1000 feet in any direction from USS Yorktown located at Patriots Point, Mt. Pleasant, SC in approximate position 32°47′27″ N, 079°54′34″ W. The safety zone will be enforced from 6:00 p.m. until 12:01 a.m. for the Fireworks display. The safety zone will be activated by a local Broadcast to Mariners and a Marine Safety Information Bulletin. Persons and vessels will be prohibited from entering, PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 37825 anchoring, mooring or transiting within the safety zone without the permission of the Captain Of the Port Charleston or his designated representative. Any concerned traffic may request permission to pass through the safety zone from the COTP or his designated representative on VHF–FM channel 16 or via phone at (843) 720–3240. Regulatory Evaluation This rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under the order. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) because these regulations will only be in effect for a short period of time and the impact on routine navigation is expected to be minimal. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), 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. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: this rule is for a highly publicized event and will only be in effect for a limited time and for a limited area. The Coast Guard Patrol Commander can authorize transits through the regulated area on a as needed basis. 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 will affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance; please contact Chief Warrant Officer James J. McHugh, Sector E:\FR\FM\03JYR1.SGM 03JYR1
