The trustee also must provide requesting persons with a statement that this paragraph applies to the NMWHFIT. (2) NMWHFITs that qualify for the exception. This paragraph (c)(2)(v)(C) applies to a NMWHFIT if substantially all the income of the NMWHFIT consists of dividends (as defined in section 6042(b) and the regulations thereunder) and the NMWHFIT satisfies either paragraph (c)(2)(v)(C)(2)(i) or (ii) of this section. Trust sales proceeds and gross proceeds from a sale described in paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(G) of this section are ignored for the purpose of determining if substantially all of a NMWHFIT’s income consists of dividends. (i) The trustee is required by the governing document of the NMWHFIT to determine and distribute all cash held for distribution (as defined in paragraph (b)(5) of this section) no less frequently than monthly. A NMWHFIT will be considered to have satisfied this paragraph (c)(2)(v)(C)(2)(i) notwithstanding that the governing document of the NMWHFIT permits the trustee to forego making a required monthly or more frequent distribution, if the cash held for distribution is less than 0.1% of the aggregate net asset value of the trust as of the date specified in the governing document for calculating the amount of the monthly distribution. (ii) The qualified NMWHFIT exception of paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(E) of this section is satisfied. (vi) Information regarding bond premium. The trustee generally must report information that enables a beneficial owner to determine, in any manner that is reasonably consistent with section 171, the amount of the beneficial owner’s amortizable bond premium, if any, for each calendar year. However, if a NMWHFIT meets the general de minimis test of paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(D)(1) of this section, the qualified NMWHFIT exception of paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(E) of this section, or the NMWHFIT final calendar year exception of paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(F) of this section, the trustee of such NMWHFIT is not required to report information regarding bond premium. (vii) Information regarding market discount. The trustee generally must report information that enables a beneficial owner to determine, in any manner reasonably consistent with section 1276 (including section VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:16 Aug 02, 2006 Jkt 208001 1276(a)(3)), the amount of market discount that has accrued during the calendar year. However, if a NMWHFIT meets the general de minimis test of paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(D)(1) of this section, the qualified NMWHFIT exception of paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(E) of this section, NMWHFIT final calendar year exception of paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(F) of this section, the trustee of such NMWHFIT is not required to provide information regarding market discount. (c)(3) through (f)(1)(i) [Reserved.] For further guidance, see § 1.671–5(c)(3) through (e)(4). (f) Safe harbor for providing information for certain NMWHFITs—(1) Safe harbor for trustee reporting of NMWHFIT information. The trustee of a NMWHFIT that meets the requirements of paragraph (f)(1)(i) of this section is deemed to satisfy paragraph (c)(1)(i) of this section, if the trustee calculates and provides WHFIT information in the manner described in this paragraph (f) and provides a statement to a requesting person giving notice that information has been calculated in accordance with this paragraph (f)(1). (i) In general—(A) Eligibility to report under this safe harbor. Only NMWHFITs that meet the requirements set forth in paragraphs (f)(1)(i)(A)(1) and (2) of this section may report under this safe harbor. For purposes of determining whether paragraph (f)(1)(i)(A)(1) of this section is met, trust sales proceeds and gross proceeds from sales described in paragraph (c)(2)(iv)(G) of this section are ignored: (1) Substantially all of the NMWHFIT’s income is from dividends or interest; and (2) All trust interests have identical value and rights. (f)(1)(i)(B) through (f)(vii) [Reserved.] For further guidance, see § 1.671– 5(f)(1)(i)(B) through (f)(vii). (viii) Reporting market discount information under the safe harbor—(A) In general. If the trustee of a NMWHFIT is required to provide information regarding market discount under paragraph (c)(2)(vii) of this section, the trustee must provide the information required under § 1.671– 5(f)(1)(iv)(A)(1)(iii) of this section. If the trustee is not required to provide market discount information under paragraph (c)(2)(vii) of this section (because paragraph (c)(2)(iv) of this section applies to the NMWHFIT), the trustee is not required under this paragraph (f) to provide any information regarding market discount.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for the Lynch Wedding Fireworks display on August 5, 2006 in Marblehead, Massachusetts, temporarily closing all waters of the Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge within a four hundred (400) yard radius of the fireworks barges located at approximate positions 42°30.142′ N, 070°49.813′ W and 42°30.146′ N, 070°49.733′ W. This zone is necessary to protect the maritime public from the potential hazards posed by a fireworks display. The safety zone temporarily prohibits entry into or movement within this portion of the Atlantic Ocean during its closure period. Entry into this zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, Boston, Massachusetts or the COTP’s designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective from 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on August 5, 2006. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket are part of docket [CGD01–06– 061] and are available for inspection or copying at Sector Boston, 427 Commercial Street, Boston, MA, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\03AUR1.SGM 03AUR1 43974 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 149 / Thursday, August 3, 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 because the logistics with respect to the fireworks presentation were not presented to the Coast Guard with sufficient time to draft and publish an NPRM. Any delay encountered in this regulation’s effective date would be contrary to the public interest since the safety zone is needed to prevent traffic from transiting a portion of Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge during the fireworks display and to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that for the same reasons good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. The zone should have a minimal negative impact on vessel transits in the Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge because vessels will be excluded from the area for only two and one half hours, and vessels can still safely operate in other areas of the ocean during the event. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with RULES Background and Purpose The Lynch Family is holding a fireworks display to celebrate a wedding. This rule establishes a temporary safety zone on the waters of the Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge within a four hundred (400) yard radius of the fireworks barges located at approximate positions 42°30.142′ N, 070°49.813′ W and 42°30.146′ N, 070°49.733′ W. This safety zone is necessary to protect the life and property of the maritime public from the potential dangers posed by this event. It will protect the public by prohibiting entry into or movement within the proscribed portion of the Atlantic Ocean during the fireworks display. Marine traffic may transit safely outside of the zone during the effective period. The Captain of the Port does not anticipate any negative impact on vessel traffic due to this event. Public notifications will be made prior to and during the effective period via safety marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners. Discussion of Rule This rule is effective from 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on August 5, 2006. Marine traffic may transit safely outside of the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:16 Aug 02, 2006 Jkt 208001 safety zone in the majority of the Atlantic Ocean during the event. Given the limited time-frame of the effective period of the zone, and the actual size of the zone with respect to the amount of navigable water around it, the Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on vessel traffic due to this event. Public notifications will be made prior to and during 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 to be so minimal that a full Regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. Although this rule will prevent traffic from transiting a portion of the Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge during this event, the effect of this rule will not be significant for several reasons: Vessels will be excluded from the area of the safety zone for only two and one half hours, although vessels will not be able to transit the area in the vicinity of the zone, they will be able to operate in other areas of the ocean during the effective period; and advance notifications will be made to the local maritime community by marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners. 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 will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in a portion of the Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge from PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on August 5, 2006.

Assistance for Small Entities Under subsection 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 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 Chief Petty Officer Paul English, Sector Boston, Waterways Management Division, at (617) 223–5456. 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 an expenditure, we do discuss the E:\FR\FM\03AUR1.SGM 03AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 149 / Thursday, August 3, 2006 / Rules and Regulations effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This rule will not affect 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 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. 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. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with RULES 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. This rule fits the category selected from paragraph (34)(g), as it would establish a safety zone.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for 
the Lynch Wedding Fireworks display on August 5, 2006 in Marblehead, 
Massachusetts, temporarily closing all waters of the Atlantic Ocean 
between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque 
Ledge within a four hundred (400) yard radius of the fireworks barges 
located at approximate positions 42[deg]30.142' N, 070[deg]49.813' W 
and 42[deg]30.146' N, 070[deg]49.733' W. This zone is necessary to 
protect the maritime public from the potential hazards posed by a 
fireworks display. The safety zone temporarily prohibits entry into or 
movement within this portion of the Atlantic Ocean during its closure 
period. Entry into this zone is prohibited unless authorized by the 
Captain of the Port, Boston, Massachusetts or the COTP's designated 
representative.

DATES: This rule is effective from 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on August 5, 
2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

[[Page 43974]]

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 because the logistics with 
respect to the fireworks presentation were not presented to the Coast 
Guard with sufficient time to draft and publish an NPRM. Any delay 
encountered in this regulation's effective date would be contrary to 
the public interest since the safety zone is needed to prevent traffic 
from transiting a portion of Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and 
Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge during the fireworks 
display and to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that for the same 
reasons good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 
days after publication in the Federal Register. The zone should have a 
minimal negative impact on vessel transits in the Atlantic Ocean 
between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque 
Ledge because vessels will be excluded from the area for only two and 
one half hours, and vessels can still safely operate in other areas of 
the ocean during the event.

Background and Purpose

    The Lynch Family is holding a fireworks display to celebrate a 
wedding. This rule establishes a temporary safety zone on the waters of 
the Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the 
vicinity of Lasque Ledge within a four hundred (400) yard radius of the 
fireworks barges located at approximate positions 42[deg]30.142' N, 
070[deg]49.813' W and 42[deg]30.146' N, 070[deg]49.733' W. This safety 
zone is necessary to protect the life and property of the maritime 
public from the potential dangers posed by this event. It will protect 
the public by prohibiting entry into or movement within the proscribed 
portion of the Atlantic Ocean during the fireworks display.
    Marine traffic may transit safely outside of the zone during the 
effective period. The Captain of the Port does not anticipate any 
negative impact on vessel traffic due to this event. Public 
notifications will be made prior to and during the effective period via 
safety marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners.

Discussion of Rule

    This rule is effective from 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on August 5, 
2006. Marine traffic may transit safely outside of the safety zone in 
the majority of the Atlantic Ocean during the event. Given the limited 
time-frame of the effective period of the zone, and the actual size of 
the zone with respect to the amount of navigable water around it, the 
Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on vessel 
traffic due to this event. Public notifications will be made prior to 
and during 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 to be so minimal that a 
full Regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. Although this rule will 
prevent traffic from transiting a portion of the Atlantic Ocean between 
Marblehead Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge 
during this event, the effect of this rule will not be significant for 
several reasons: Vessels will be excluded from the area of the safety 
zone for only two and one half hours, although vessels will not be able 
to transit the area in the vicinity of the zone, they will be able to 
operate in other areas of the ocean during the effective period; and 
advance notifications will be made to the local maritime community by 
marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners.

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 will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor in a portion of the Atlantic Ocean between Marblehead 
Neck and Marblehead Rock in the vicinity of Lasque Ledge from 7:30 p.m. 
until 10 p.m. on August 5, 2006. This safety zone will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
for the reason described under the Regulatory Evaluation section.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under subsection 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 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 Chief Petty Officer 
Paul English, Sector Boston, Waterways Management Division, at (617) 
223-5456.
    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 an expenditure, we 
do discuss the

[[Page 43975]]

effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not affect 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 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

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.

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.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. This rule fits the category selected from paragraph 
(34)(g), as it would establish a safety zone.
    A final ``Environmental Analysis Check List'' and a final 
``Categorical Exclusion Determination'' will be available in the docket 
where indicated under ADDRESSES.
