Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: cprice-sewell on PRODPC74 with RULES SUMMARY: The United States Coast Guard is establishing a 500-yard security zone encompassing waters in the vicinity of Church Point on Jamestown Island, VA, for the Queen of England’s visit to Jamestown Island, VA. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic within the 500-yard security zone described herein. This security zone is necessary to protect attendees of this event from potential maritime hazards and threats, and to enhance public and maritime security. DATES: This rule is effective from 8 a.m. on May 3, 2007, until 8 p.m. on May 4, 2007. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket are part of docket CGD05–07– 038 and are available for inspection or copying at USCG Sector Hampton Roads, 4000 Coast Guard Blvd., Portsmouth, Virginia, 23703, between 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: LCDR Thomas Tarrants, Enforcement Branch Chief, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads, Virginia at (757) 483– 8571. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) was not published for this regulation. Good cause exists for not publishing a NPRM. Any delay encountered in this regulation’s effective date by publishing an NPRM would be contrary to the public interest, since immediate action is needed to prevent mariners and vessels from entering waters within a 500-yard radius of 37–12.45N, 076– 46.66W on Jamestown Island, VA, in VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:21 Apr 20, 2007 Jkt 211001 order to provide for the security of this event and its attendees. For the same reasons good cause exists for making this regulation effective less than 30 days after Federal Register publication under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). Background and Purpose Following terrorist attacks on the United States in September 2001, there is now a heightened awareness that vessels or persons could engage in subversive activity against targets ashore in the United States. This regulation is necessary to protect the Queen of England’s visit to Jamestown Island, VA, from potential maritime threats. This temporary security zone will only be in effect from 8 a.m. on May 3, 2007, until 8 p.m. on May 4, 2007. This zone will have minimal impact on vessel transits because vessels can safely transit around the zone and they are not precluded from using any portion of the waterway except the security zone area itself. Additionally, public notifications announcing this regulation will be made via marine information broadcasts prior to the zone taking effect. Discussion of Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary security zone on specified waters to provide protection to the Queen of England and other dignitaries visiting Jamestown Island. The security zone is effective from 8 a.m. on May 3, 2007, until 8 p.m. on May 4, 2007. The security zone encompasses all waters off Jamestown Island, VA, within a 500yard radius of Church Point at 37–12.45 N, 076–46.66 W. No persons or vessels may enter or remain in the regulated area without authorization by the Captain of the Port, Hampton Roads, or his designated representative. 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. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full regulatory evaluation under the regulatory policies and procedures of DHS is unnecessary. Although this rule restricts access to the regulated area, the effect of this rule will not be significant because: (i) The COTP may authorize PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 20051 access to the security zone; (ii) the security zone will be in effect for a limited duration; (iii) the Coast Guard will make notifications via maritime advisories so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. 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. However, this rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the described portion of the security zone between 8 a.m. on May 3, 2007, to 8 p.m. on May 4, 2007. The security zone will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities because the zone does not encompass a high vessel traffic area, and will only be in place for approximately 2-days. Maritime advisories will also be issued, so the mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. 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 would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact LCDR Thomas Tarrants, Enforcement Branch Chief, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads, Virginia at (757) 483–8571. 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 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 U.S. E:\FR\FM\23APR1.SGM 23APR1 20052 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 77 / Monday, April 23, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. cprice-sewell on PRODPC74 with RULES 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, VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:21 Apr 20, 2007 Jkt 211001 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, which guides 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. Under figure 2–1, paragraph 34(g) of the Instruction, an ‘‘Environmental Analysis Check List’’ and a ‘‘Categorical Exclusion Determination’’ are not required for this rule because it concerns an emergency situation of less than 1 week in duration.

Security Zone: Queen of England Visit, Jamestown Island, VA

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The United States Coast Guard is establishing a 500-yard 
security zone encompassing waters in the vicinity of Church Point on 
Jamestown Island, VA, for the Queen of England's visit to Jamestown 
Island, VA. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic within 
the 500-yard security zone described herein. This security zone is 
necessary to protect attendees of this event from potential maritime 
hazards and threats, and to enhance public and maritime security.

DATES: This rule is effective from 8 a.m. on May 3, 2007, until 8 p.m. 
on May 4, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in 
the docket are part of docket CGD05-07-038 and are available for 
inspection or copying at USCG Sector Hampton Roads, 4000 Coast Guard

Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: LCDR Thomas Tarrants, Enforcement 
Branch Chief, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads, Virginia at (757)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Regulatory Information

    Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) was not published for this regulation. Good cause exists for not 
publishing a NPRM. Any delay encountered in this regulation's effective 
date by publishing an NPRM would be contrary to the public interest, 
since immediate action is needed to prevent mariners and vessels from 
entering waters within a 500-yard radius of 37-12.45N, 076-46.66W on 
Jamestown Island, VA, in order to provide for the security of this 
event and its attendees.
    For the same reasons good cause exists for making this regulation 
effective less than 30 days after Federal Register publication under 5 
U.S.C. 553(d)(3).

Background and Purpose

    Following terrorist attacks on the United States in September 2001, 
there is now a heightened awareness that vessels or persons could 
engage in subversive activity against targets ashore in the United 
States. This regulation is necessary to protect the Queen of England's 
visit to Jamestown Island, VA, from potential maritime threats. This 
temporary security zone will only be in effect from 8 a.m. on May 3, 
2007, until 8 p.m. on May 4, 2007. This zone will have minimal impact 
on vessel transits because vessels can safely transit around the zone 
and they are not precluded from using any portion of the waterway 
except the security zone area itself. Additionally, public 
notifications announcing this regulation will be made via marine 
information broadcasts prior to the zone taking effect.

Discussion of Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary security zone on 
specified waters to provide protection to the Queen of England and 
other dignitaries visiting Jamestown Island. The security zone is 
effective from 8 a.m. on May 3, 2007, until 8 p.m. on May 4, 2007. The 
security zone encompasses all waters off Jamestown Island, VA, within a 
500-yard radius of Church Point at 37-12.45 N, 076-46.66 W. No persons 
or vessels may enter or remain in the regulated area without 
authorization by the Captain of the Port, Hampton Roads, or his 
designated representative.

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. It is not ``significant'' under the 
regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland 
Security (DHS).
    We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a 
full regulatory evaluation under the regulatory policies and procedures 
of DHS is unnecessary. Although this rule restricts access to the 
regulated area, the effect of this rule will not be significant 
because: (i) The COTP may authorize access to the security zone; (ii) 
the security zone will be in effect for a limited duration; (iii) the 
Coast Guard will make notifications via maritime advisories so mariners 
can adjust their plans accordingly.

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.
    However, this rule may affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor in the described portion of the security zone between 
8 a.m. on May 3, 2007, to 8 p.m. on May 4, 2007. The security zone will 
not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities 
because the zone does not encompass a high vessel traffic area, and 
will only be in place for approximately 2-days. Maritime advisories 
will also be issued, so the mariners can adjust their plans 
accordingly.

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 
would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please contact LCDR Thomas Tarrants, 
Enforcement Branch Chief, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads, 
Virginia at (757) 483-8571.
    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 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 U.S.

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 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 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. 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, 
which guides 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. Under figure 2-1, paragraph 34(g) of the 
Instruction, an ``Environmental Analysis Check List'' and a 
``Categorical Exclusion Determination'' are not required for this rule 
because it concerns an emergency situation of less than 1 week in 
duration.
