Special Local Regulations for Marine Events; Opening Day on San Francisco Bay, Corinthian Yacht Club, San Francisco Bay, CA, 20049 [E7-7694]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 77 / Monday, April 23, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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 a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h) of Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, from further environmental documentation. Special local regulations issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine event permit are specifically excluded from further analysis and documentation under that section. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h) of the instruction, an ‘‘Environmental Analysis Check List’’ and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for this rule.
