Download as PDF 38532 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 130 / Friday, July 7, 2006 / Rules and Regulations minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. 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. 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. Energy Effects We have analyzed this 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. The Administrator of the 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 Executive Order 13211. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with RULES 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 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:33 Jul 06, 2006 Jkt 208001 Environment We have analyzed this rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.lD and Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 5100.1, 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 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, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction, from further environmental documentation.

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for the Fundacion Amistad Fireworks in Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY. The safety zone is necessary to protect the life and property of the maritime community from the hazards posed by the fireworks display. Entry into or movement within this safety zone during the enforcement period is prohibited without approval of the Captain of the Port, Long Island Sound.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\07JYR1.SGM 07JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 130 / Friday, July 7, 2006 / Rules and Regulations 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 an NPRM. The Coast Guard did not receive an Application for Approval of Marine Event for this event until May 1, 2006, thereby making an NPRM impracticable and contrary to the pubic interest. 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. Any delay encountered in this regulation’s effective date would be impracticable and contrary to public interest since immediate action is needed to prevent traffic from transiting a portion of Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY and to protect the maritime public from the hazards associated with this fireworks event. The temporary zone should have minimal negative impact on the public and navigation because it is only effective for a 3 hour period and the area closed by the safety zone is minimal, allowing vessels to transit around the zone in Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY. Background and Purpose The Fundacion Amistad Fireworks display will be taking place in Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on July 22, 2006. If the fireworks display is cancelled due to inclement weather on July 22, 2006, it will take place during the same hours on July 23, 2006. This safety zone is necessary to protect the life and property of the maritime public from the hazards posed by the fireworks display. It will protect the maritime public by prohibiting entry into or movement within this portion of Three Mile Harbor one hour prior to, during and one hour after the stated event. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with RULES Discussion of Rule This regulation establishes a temporary safety zone in Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY and the impacted waters of Three Mile Harbor within an 800-foot radius of the fireworks launch site located at approximate position 41°1′5″ N, 072°11′55″ W. The temporary safety zone will be outlined by temporary marker buoys installed by the event organizers. This action is intended to prohibit vessel traffic in a portion of Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY to provide for the protection of life and property of the maritime public. The VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:33 Jul 06, 2006 Jkt 208001 safety zone will be enforced from 8:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. on July 22, 2006. Marine traffic may transit safely outside of the safety zone during the event thereby allowing navigation of the rest of Three Mile Harbor except for the portion delineated by this rule. The Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on vessel traffic due to this event due to the limited area and duration covered by this safety zone. Public notifications will be made prior to the effective period via local notice to mariners and marine information broadcasts. 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 that Order. We expect the economic impact of this rule will be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation under the regulatory policies and procedures of DHS is unnecessary. This regulation may have some impact on the public, but the potential impact will be minimized for the following reasons: vessels will only be excluded from the area of the safety zone for 3 hours; and vessels will be able to operate in other areas of Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY during the enforcement period. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule will 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 will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in those portions of Long Island Sound covered by the safety zone. For the reasons outlined in the Regulatory Evaluation section above, this rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 38533 jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. Assistance for Small Entities Under subsection 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 [Pub. L. 104–121], we offered to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. If this rule will affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please call Lieutenant Junior Grade D. Miller, Assistant Chief, Waterways Management Division, Sector Long Island Sound, at (203) 468– 4596.

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). Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. 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 or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such E:\FR\FM\07JYR1.SGM 07JYR1 38534 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 130 / Friday, July 7, 2006 / Rules and Regulations an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. 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. 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 will not concern an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children.

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for 
the Fundacion Amistad Fireworks in Three Mile Harbor off of East 
Hampton, NY. The safety zone is necessary to protect the life and 
property of the maritime community from the hazards posed by the 
fireworks display. Entry into or movement within this safety zone 
during the enforcement period is prohibited without approval of the 
Captain of the Port, Long Island Sound.

DATES: This rule is effective from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on July 22, 
2006 and July 23, 2006.

ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

[[Page 38533]]

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 an NPRM. The Coast Guard did not 
receive an Application for Approval of Marine Event for this event 
until May 1, 2006, thereby making an NPRM impracticable and contrary to 
the pubic interest.
    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. Any delay encountered in this 
regulation's effective date would be impracticable and contrary to 
public interest since immediate action is needed to prevent traffic 
from transiting a portion of Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY 
and to protect the maritime public from the hazards associated with 
this fireworks event.
    The temporary zone should have minimal negative impact on the 
public and navigation because it is only effective for a 3 hour period 
and the area closed by the safety zone is minimal, allowing vessels to 
transit around the zone in Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY.

Background and Purpose

    The Fundacion Amistad Fireworks display will be taking place in 
Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. 
on July 22, 2006. If the fireworks display is cancelled due to 
inclement weather on July 22, 2006, it will take place during the same 
hours on July 23, 2006. This safety zone is necessary to protect the 
life and property of the maritime public from the hazards posed by the 
fireworks display. It will protect the maritime public by prohibiting 
entry into or movement within this portion of Three Mile Harbor one 
hour prior to, during and one hour after the stated event.

Discussion of Rule

    This regulation establishes a temporary safety zone in Three Mile 
Harbor off of East Hampton, NY and the impacted waters of Three Mile 
Harbor within an 800-foot radius of the fireworks launch site located 
at approximate position 41[deg]1'5'' N, 072[deg]11'55'' W. The 
temporary safety zone will be outlined by temporary marker buoys 
installed by the event organizers.
    This action is intended to prohibit vessel traffic in a portion of 
Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY to provide for the protection 
of life and property of the maritime public. The safety zone will be 
enforced from 8:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. on July 22, 2006. Marine 
traffic may transit safely outside of the safety zone during the event 
thereby allowing navigation of the rest of Three Mile Harbor except for 
the portion delineated by this rule.
    The Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on 
vessel traffic due to this event due to the limited area and duration 
covered by this safety zone. Public notifications will be made prior to 
the effective period via local notice to mariners and marine 
information broadcasts.

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 that Order.
    We expect the economic impact of this rule will be so minimal that 
a full Regulatory Evaluation under the regulatory policies and 
procedures of DHS is unnecessary. This regulation may have some impact 
on the public, but the potential impact will be minimized for the 
following reasons: vessels will only be excluded from the area of the 
safety zone for 3 hours; and vessels will be able to operate in other 
areas of Three Mile Harbor off of East Hampton, NY during the 
enforcement period.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule will 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 will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. This rule may affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor in those portions of Long Island Sound covered by the 
safety zone. For the reasons outlined in the Regulatory Evaluation 
section above, this rule will not have a significant impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under subsection 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory 
Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 [Pub. L. 104-121], we offered to 
assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can 
better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking 
process. If this rule will affect your small business, organization, or 
governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its 
provisions or options for compliance, please call Lieutenant Junior 
Grade D. Miller, Assistant Chief, Waterways Management Division, Sector 
Long Island Sound, at (203) 468-4596.
    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).

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).

Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism.

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 or more in any 
one year. Though this rule will not result in such

[[Page 38534]]

an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in 
this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

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.

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 will not concern an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it will 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.

Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this 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.

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 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.

Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.1D 
and Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 5100.1, 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 there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of the 
categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. 
Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, 
paragraph (34), of the Instruction, from further environmental 
documentation.
    A final ``Environmental Analysis Check List'' and a final 
``Categorical Exclusion Determination'' will be available in the docket 
where indicated under ADDRESSES.
