ACTION: Temporary final rule. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for the Town of Marblehead Fourth of July Fireworks on July 4, 2007 with a rain date on July 5, 2007, in Marblehead, MA temporarily closing all navigable waters of Marblehead Harbor within a four hundred (400) yard radius of the fireworks barge located at approximate position 42°30.567′ N, 070°50.162′ W. The safety zone is necessary to protect the life and property of 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 Marblehead Harbor during its closure period. DATES: This rule is effective from 8:30 p.m. EDT on July 4, 2007 until 10 p.m. EDT on July 4, 2007. The rain date for the fireworks event is from 8:30 p.m. EDT until 10 p.m. EDT on July 5, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Petty Officer Joseph Yonker, Sector Boston, Waterways Management Division, at (617) 223–5007. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:54 Jun 18, 2007 Jkt 211001 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory History On April 16, 2007, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Safety Zone; Town of Marblehead Fourth of July Fireworks Display, Marblehead Harbor, MA’’ in the Federal Register (72 FR 18933). We did not receive any letters commenting on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. As the fireworks display is scheduled to occur on July 4, 2007, any delay encountered in the 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 Marblehead Harbor during the fireworks display thus ensuring that the maritime public is protected from any potential harm associated with such an event. Accordingly, 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. Background and Purpose This rule establishes a safety zone on the navigable waters of Marblehead Harbor within a 400 yard radius around the fireworks barge located at approximate position 42°30.567′ N, 070°50.162′ W. The safety zone is in effect from 8:30 p.m. EDT until 10 p.m. EDT on July 4, 2007. The rain date for the fireworks event is from 8:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. EDT on July 5, 2007. The safety zone temporarily restricts movement within this portion of Marblehead Harbor and is needed to protect the maritime public from the dangers posed by a 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 the event. Public notifications will be made prior to the effective period via marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners. Discussion of Comments and Changes The Coast Guard did not receive any comments from the public in response to the NPRM and as a result no changes have been made to this temporary final rule. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation under of the regulatory policies and procedures of DHS is unnecessary. Although this rule prevents vessel traffic from transiting a portion of Marblehead Harbor during the effective period, the effects of this regulation will not be significant for several reasons: vessels will be excluded from the proscribed area for only one and one half hours, vessels will be able to operate in the majority of Marblehead Harbor 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 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 Marblehead Harbor from 8:30 p.m. EDT until 10 p.m. EDT on July 4, 2007 or during the same hours on July 5, 2007. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: this rule will be in effect for only one and one half hours, vessel traffic can safely pass around the zone, and advance notifications will be made to the local maritime community by marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we offered to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they could better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. E:\FR\FM\19JNR1.SGM 19JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 19, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 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 State, local or tribal governments, 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 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. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:54 Jun 18, 2007 Jkt 211001 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 pose 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. 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 standard. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.1D PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 33689 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 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 that will be in effect for only one and one-half hours.

ACTION: Final rule. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Copyright Office of the Library of Congress is publishing a final rule establishing a lower basic registration fee of $35 for copyright claims submitted electronically. This fee applies to all registrations where the application is submitted electronically, including those registrations where the deposit materials cannot be sent electronically together with the application. At the same time, the Office is retaining its current fee of $45 for processing paper applications for basic copyright registration of a copyright claim. The dual fee structure reflects the reduced cost of processing electronic claims and serves as an incentive to the public to utilize the new online, electronic registration system. On or after July 1, 2007, the Copyright Office will begin accepting a limited number of electronic submissions of copyright claims through the Internet and the new fee will apply to these applications. The adoption of the new rule assumes that no legislative action will take place before July 1, 2007. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2007.

Telefax: (202) 707–8366. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This final rule adjusts Copyright Office fees in accordance with the applicable provisions of title 17, United States Code, and the Technical Amendments Act, Pub. L. No. 105–80, 111 Stat. 1529 (1997), codified as 17 U.S.C. 708(b). In 1997, Congress delegated to the Register of Copyrights authority to adjust fees in accordance with a new procedure. This procedure requires the Register to conduct a study of the costs incurred for fee services, such as the registration of claims, the recordation of documents, and search services. If, after the review and application of all statutory criteria, the Register determines that fees should be adjusted, the Register prepares a proposed fee schedule and submits the schedule and the accompanying economic analysis to Congress. 17 U.S.C. 708(b)(5). The fee proposed in that schedule may be instituted in 120 days unless Congress enacts a law within that 120 day period stating that it does not approve the schedule. Id. Technical Amendments Act, Pub. L. No. 105–80, 111 Stat. 1529 (1997). The Copyright Office has instituted fee adjustments under the Technical Amendments Act on three separate occasions. The first schedule was adopted in 1999. See 63 FR 43426 (August 13, 1998) and 64 FR 29518 (June 1, 1999). Three years later a second adjustment was made raising many copyright fees, but leaving the basic copyright registration fee at $30. 67 FR 38003 (May 31, 2002). The last fee adjustment was adopted in 2006, in which most statutory fees were again raised due to increase in costs. In this instance, the basic registration fee was increased from $30 to $45. 71 FR 15368 (March 28, 2006) and 71 FR 31089 (June 1, 2006). Cost Study In raising the basic registration fee last year to $45, the commentary in the Federal Register notice anticipated establishing a differential fee schedule with lower filing fees for online registration to reflect the efficiencies of the new reengineered processes. 71 FR at 31090. It is intended that the dual fee will not only reflect the reduced costs of processing electronic claims, but will also provide an incentive to potential electronic filers. On February 21, 2007, a cost study was submitted to Congress proposing to PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 reduce the basic registration fee for copyright claims submitted electronically to $35 and to institute new fees for listing titles of individual works in an application for a collection or collective work. The per title fee for an electronic submission would be $1 and the per title fee for a paper application would be $3. However, the proposed fees for listing titles of individual works in an application for a collection or collective work are not being adopted at this time. The cost study used to determine the new fees was developed by the Copyright Office based on a model created as part of its business process reengineering initiative. The cost analysis utilized an activity–based costing methodology approved by the Office of Management and Budget in its publication, Managerial Cost Accounting Standards for the Federal Government, Statement of Federal Financial Accounting Standards, No. 4 (July 31, 1995). Cost studies of this type are retrospective, using actual data from a prior fiscal year. However, costing for the proposed fee had to be done prospectively, as an adjunct to the earlier cost study, because electronic registration has not been offered in the past. In developing the new fee, the Copyright Office utilized data from a small–scale testbed for electronic registration and data from prior cost studies relating to the costs of certain paper handling processes which will be eliminated by the new electronic processing systems. On the basis of the information available to the Copyright Office, it concluded that a fee of $35 for the electronic processing of a claim to copyright to be reasonable. The Office is likely to revisit the fee issue once the electronic system has been fully operational for a sufficient period of time so as to yield reliable information on the actual costs involved in providing the service. The Office is also adopting technical amendments to bring all fees within the fee schedules set forth in § § 201.3 (c) and (e) of title 37 of the CFR. Specifically, the Office is amending § § 201.11(h)(3)(iv)(A), 201. 201.17(k)(3)(iv)(A), 201.27 (g)(2), 201.28(i)(3)(v)(A), 212.3(e)(1), (f)(4), and 212.5(c)(4). Effective Date Congress has 120 days from February 21, 2007, to review the statutory fees submitted to it, codified in § 201.3(c). If no legislation is enacted barring adoption of these fees, the $35 proposed fee for registration of copyright claims submitted electronically will be adopted, effective July 1, 2007.

RIN 1625-AA00


Safety Zone: Town of Marblehead Fourth of July Fireworks Display, 
Marblehead Harbor, MA

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for 
the Town of Marblehead Fourth of July Fireworks on July 4, 2007 with a 
rain date on July 5, 2007, in Marblehead, MA temporarily closing all 
navigable waters of Marblehead Harbor within a four hundred (400) yard 
radius of the fireworks barge located at approximate position 
42[deg]30.567' N, 070[deg]50.162' W. The safety zone is necessary to 
protect the life and property of 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 Marblehead 
Harbor during its closure period.

DATES: This rule is effective from 8:30 p.m. EDT on July 4, 2007 until 
10 p.m. EDT on July 4, 2007. The rain date for the fireworks event is 
from 8:30 p.m. EDT until 10 p.m. EDT on July 5, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Comments and material received from the public, as well as 
documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket 
are part of docket CGD01-07-001 and are available for inspection or 
copying at Sector Boston, 427 Commercial Street, Boston, MA between the 
hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays.

Boston, Waterways Management Division, at (617) 223-5007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory History

    On April 16, 2007, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled ``Safety Zone; Town of Marblehead Fourth of July 
Fireworks Display, Marblehead Harbor, MA'' in the Federal Register (72 
FR 18933). We did not receive any letters commenting on the proposed 
rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held.
    As the fireworks display is scheduled to occur on July 4, 2007, any 
delay encountered in the 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 Marblehead Harbor during the 
fireworks display thus ensuring that the maritime public is protected 
from any potential harm associated with such an event. Accordingly, 
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.

Background and Purpose

    This rule establishes a safety zone on the navigable waters of 
Marblehead Harbor within a 400 yard radius around the fireworks barge 
located at approximate position 42[deg]30.567' N, 070[deg]50.162' W. 
The safety zone is in effect from 8:30 p.m. EDT until 10 p.m. EDT on 
July 4, 2007. The rain date for the fireworks event is from 8:30 p.m. 
until 10 p.m. EDT on July 5, 2007.
    The safety zone temporarily restricts movement within this portion 
of Marblehead Harbor and is needed to protect the maritime public from 
the dangers posed by a 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 the event. Public notifications will be made prior to the effective 
period via marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    The Coast Guard did not receive any comments from the public in 
response to the NPRM and as a result no changes have been made to this 
temporary final rule.

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.
    The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this rule to be so 
minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation under of the regulatory 
policies and procedures of DHS is unnecessary.
    Although this rule prevents vessel traffic from transiting a 
portion of Marblehead Harbor during the effective period, the effects 
of this regulation will not be significant for several reasons: vessels 
will be excluded from the proscribed area for only one and one half 
hours, vessels will be able to operate in the majority of Marblehead 
Harbor 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 
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 Marblehead Harbor from 8:30 p.m. EDT until 10 
p.m. EDT on July 4, 2007 or during the same hours on July 5, 2007.
    This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: this 
rule will be in effect for only one and one half hours, vessel traffic 
can safely pass around the zone, and advance notifications will be made 
to the local maritime community by marine information broadcasts and 
Local Notice to Mariners.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we offered to assist small 
entities in understanding the rule so that they could better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process.

[[Page 33689]]

    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). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 
entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or 
action of the Coast Guard.

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 State, local or tribal governments, 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 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 pose 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.

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 standard.

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 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 that will be in effect for only one and one-
half hours.
