FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David Olson, Headquarters, Operations and Regulatory Community of Practice, Washington, DC at 202–761–4922 or Mr. Jon M. Griffin, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, Regulatory Division, at 904–232–1680. 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 proposing to amend the regulations in 33 CFR part 334 by modifying the restricted area at section 334.610(a)(4). The modification to the existing restricted area is described in the body of this notice. The Ammunition and Hazardous Materials Handling Review Board has cited NASKW for allowing anchored pleasure craft to be within the inhabited building distance of the Fleming Island Magazine area. The amendment to the regulations will allow the Commanding Office NASKW to restrict passage of persons, watercraft, and vessels to ensure that ESQD requirements related to the Fleming Island Magazine area are met. Procedural Requirements a. Review Under Executive Order 12866. The proposed rule is issued with respect to a military function of the Defense Department and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply. b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The proposed rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 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). Unless information is obtained to the contrary during the public notice comment period, the Corps expects that the economic impact of the amendment of this restricted area would have practically no impact on the public, no anticipated navigational hazard or interference with existing waterway traffic. This proposed rule, if E:\FR\FM\21FEP1.SGM 21FEP1 7842 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 34 / Wednesday, February 21, 2007 / Proposed Rules adopted, will have no significant economic impact on small entities. c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. Due to the administrative nature of this action and because there is no intended change in the use of the area, the Corps expects that this regulation, if adopted, will not have a significant impact to the quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement will not be required. An environmental assessment will be prepared after the public notice period is closed and all comments have been received and considered. It may be reviewed at the District office listed at the end of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. d. Unfunded Mandates Act. This proposed 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 Reform Act (Public Laws 104–4, 109 Stat. 48, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.). We have also found under Section 203 of the Act, that small governments will not be significantly or uniquely affected by this rule.

In the final rules section of the Federal Register, EPA is approving the state’s SIP revision and Title V revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial revision amendment and anticipates no relevant adverse comments to this action. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no relevant adverse comments are received in response to this action, no further activity is contemplated in relation to this action. If EPA receives relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed action. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on part of this rule and if that part can be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those parts of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.

33 CFR Part 334


United States Navy Restricted Area, Key West Harbor, at U.S. 
Naval Base, Key West, FL

AGENCY: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DoD.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rule making and request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing to amend 
the existing regulations for a restricted area at Naval Air Station Key 
West (NASKW). Naval Air Station Key West maintains ammunition magazines 
on Fleming Island that have explosive safety quality-distance (ESQD) 
requirements in place to ensure reasonable safety from serious injury 
should there be a magazine fire or explosion. The current restricted 
area regulations do not adequately cover the ESQD requirements. This 
amendment to the existing regulation is necessary to protect the public 
from potentially hazardous conditions that may exist as a result of 
military use of the area.

DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before March 23, 2007.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by docket number COE-

consider to be CBI, or otherwise protected, through regulations.gov or 
e-mail. The regulations.gov web site is an anonymous access system, 
which means we will not know your identity or contact information 
unless you provide it in the body of your comment. If you send an e-
mail directly to the Corps without going through regulations.gov, your 
e-mail address will be automatically captured and included as part of 
the comment that is placed in the public docket and made available on 
the Internet. If you submit an electronic comment, we recommend that 
you include your name and other contact information in the body of your

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David Olson, Headquarters, 
Operations and Regulatory Community of Practice, Washington, DC at 202-
761-4922 or Mr. Jon M. Griffin, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 
Jacksonville District, Regulatory Division, at 904-232-1680.

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 proposing to amend the regulations in 33 CFR 
part 334 by modifying the restricted area at section 334.610(a)(4). The 
modification to the existing restricted area is described in the body 
of this notice.
    The Ammunition and Hazardous Materials Handling Review Board has 
cited NASKW for allowing anchored pleasure craft to be within the 
inhabited building distance of the Fleming Island Magazine area. The 
amendment to the regulations will allow the Commanding Office NASKW to 
restrict passage of persons, watercraft, and vessels to ensure that 
ESQD requirements related to the Fleming Island Magazine area are met.

Procedural Requirements

    a. Review Under Executive Order 12866. The proposed rule is issued 
with respect to a military function of the Defense Department and the 
provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply.
    b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The proposed rule 
has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 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). Unless information is obtained to 
the contrary during the public notice comment period, the Corps expects 
that the economic impact of the amendment of this restricted area would 
have practically no impact on the public, no anticipated navigational 
hazard or interference with existing waterway traffic. This proposed 
rule, if

[[Page 7842]]

adopted, will have no significant economic impact on small entities.
    c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. Due to the 
administrative nature of this action and because there is no intended 
change in the use of the area, the Corps expects that this regulation, 
if adopted, will not have a significant impact to the quality of the 
human environment and, therefore, preparation of an environmental 
impact statement will not be required. An environmental assessment will 
be prepared after the public notice period is closed and all comments 
have been received and considered. It may be reviewed at the District 
office listed at the end of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above.
    d. Unfunded Mandates Act. This proposed 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 Reform Act (Public Laws 
104-4, 109 Stat. 48, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.). We have also found under 
Section 203 of the Act, that small governments will not be 
significantly or uniquely affected by this rule.

List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 334

    Danger zones, Navigation (water), Restricted areas, Waterways.

    For the reasons set out in the preamble, the Corps proposes to
