Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 19, 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 the 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 because the rule establishes 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.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for the Salute to Veterans Fireworks off of West Marina/Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY. The safety zone is necessary to protect the life and property of the maritime community from the hazards posed by the fireworks display. Entry into or movement within this safety zone during the enforcement period is prohibited without approval of the Captain of the Port, Long Island Sound. DATES: This rule is effective from 8:30 p.m. on June 30, 2007 until 10:30 p.m. on July 1, 2007. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket, are part of docket CGD01–07– 061 and will be available for inspection or copying at Sector Long Island Sound, New Haven, CT, between 9 a.m. and 3 PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 33681 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lieutenant D. Miller, Chief, Waterways Management Division, Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound at (203) 468– 4596. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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. The Coast Guard did not receive an Application for Approval of Marine Event for this event until May 16, 2007, thereby making an NPRM impracticable. A delay or cancellation of the fireworks display in order to accommodate a full notice and comment period would be contrary to the public interest. 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. Any delay encountered in this regulation’s effective date would be impracticable and contrary to public interest since immediate action is needed to prevent traffic from transiting a portion of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY and to protect the maritime public from the hazards associated with this fireworks event. The temporary zone should have minimal negative impact on the public and navigation because it will only be enforced for a two hour period on one of two specific days. In addition, the area closed by the safety zone is minimal, allowing vessels to transit around the zone in Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY. Background and Purpose The Salute to Veterans Fireworks display will be taking place off West Marina/Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on June 30, 2007. If the fireworks display is cancelled due to inclement weather on June 30, 2007, it will take place during the same hours on July 1, 2007. This safety zone is necessary to protect the life and property of the maritime public from the hazards posed by the fireworks display. It will protect the maritime public by prohibiting entry into or movement within this portion of Jones Inlet prior to, during and after the stated event so as to ensure mariners maintain a safe distance from the fireworks. Discussion of Rule This regulation establishes a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY E:\FR\FM\19JNR1.SGM 19JNR1 33682 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 19, 2007 / Rules and Regulations within a 600-foot radius of the launch site located at approximate position 40°35′36.87″ N, 073°35′20.72″ W. The temporary safety zone will be outlined by temporary marker buoys installed by the event organizers. This action is intended to prohibit vessel traffic in a portion of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY to provide for the protection of life and property of the maritime public. The safety zone will be enforced from 8:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. on June 30, 2007. Marine traffic may transit outside of the safety zone during the event thereby allowing navigation of the rest of Jones Inlet except for the portion delineated by this rule. The Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on vessel traffic from this safety zone due to the limited area and short duration covered by this regulation. Public notifications will be made prior to the effective period via local notice to mariners and marine information broadcasts. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES 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 will be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation under the regulatory policies and procedures of DHS is unnecessary. This regulation may have some impact on the public, but the potential impact will be minimized for the following reasons: vessels will only be excluded from the area of the safety zone for 2 hours and vessels will be able to operate in other areas of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY during the enforcement period. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule will 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 may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:54 Jun 18, 2007 Jkt 211001 vessels intending to transit or anchor in those portions of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY covered by the safety zone. For the reasons outlined in the Regulatory Evaluation section above, this rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. determined that it does not have implications for federalism. Assistance for Small Entities Taking of Private Property Under subsection 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 [Pub. L. 104–121], the Coast Guard wants to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. 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 Lieutenant D. Miller, Chief, Waterways Management Division, Sector Long Island Sound, at (203) 468–4596. 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. 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. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 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 will not concern 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 will 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 E:\FR\FM\19JNR1.SGM 19JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 19, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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. Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1226, 1231; 46 U.S.C.

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. I 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 the categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34), of the Instruction, from further environmental documentation. This rule falls under the provisions of paragraph (34)(g) because the rule establishes a safety zone.

Safety Zone: Salute to Veterans Fireworks, West Marina/Jones 
Inlet, Point Lookout, NY

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for 
the Salute to Veterans Fireworks off of West Marina/Jones Inlet, Point 
Lookout, NY. The safety zone is necessary to protect the life and 
property of the maritime community from the hazards posed by the 
fireworks display. Entry into or movement within this safety zone 
during the enforcement period is prohibited without approval of the 
Captain of the Port, Long Island Sound.

DATES: This rule is effective from 8:30 p.m. on June 30, 2007 until 
10:30 p.m. on July 1, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in 
the docket, are part of docket CGD01-07-061 and will be available for 
inspection or copying at Sector Long Island Sound, New Haven, CT, 
between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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. The Coast Guard did not 
receive an Application for Approval of Marine Event for this event 
until May 16, 2007, thereby making an NPRM impracticable. A delay or 
cancellation of the fireworks display in order to accommodate a full 
notice and comment period would be contrary to the public interest.
    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. Any delay encountered in this 
regulation's effective date would be impracticable and contrary to 
public interest since immediate action is needed to prevent traffic 
from transiting a portion of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY and to 
protect the maritime public from the hazards associated with this 
fireworks event.
    The temporary zone should have minimal negative impact on the 
public and navigation because it will only be enforced for a two hour 
period on one of two specific days. In addition, the area closed by the 
safety zone is minimal, allowing vessels to transit around the zone in 
Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY.

Background and Purpose

    The Salute to Veterans Fireworks display will be taking place off 
West Marina/Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. 
on June 30, 2007. If the fireworks display is cancelled due to 
inclement weather on June 30, 2007, it will take place during the same 
hours on July 1, 2007. This safety zone is necessary to protect the 
life and property of the maritime public from the hazards posed by the 
fireworks display. It will protect the maritime public by prohibiting 
entry into or movement within this portion of Jones Inlet prior to, 
during and after the stated event so as to ensure mariners maintain a 
safe distance from the fireworks.

Discussion of Rule

    This regulation establishes a temporary safety zone on the 
navigable waters of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY

[[Page 33682]]

within a 600-foot radius of the launch site located at approximate 
position 40[deg]35'36.87'' N, 073[deg]35'20.72'' W. The temporary 
safety zone will be outlined by temporary marker buoys installed by the 
event organizers.
    This action is intended to prohibit vessel traffic in a portion of 
Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY to provide for the protection of life 
and property of the maritime public. The safety zone will be enforced 
from 8:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. on June 30, 2007. Marine traffic may 
transit outside of the safety zone during the event thereby allowing 
navigation of the rest of Jones Inlet except for the portion delineated 
by this rule.
    The Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on 
vessel traffic from this safety zone due to the limited area and short 
duration covered by this regulation. Public notifications will be made 
prior to 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 will be so minimal that 
a full Regulatory Evaluation under the regulatory policies and 
procedures of DHS is unnecessary. This regulation may have some impact 
on the public, but the potential impact will be minimized for the 
following reasons: vessels will only be excluded from the area of the 
safety zone for 2 hours and vessels will be able to operate in other 
areas of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY during the enforcement period.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule will 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 may affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor in those portions of Jones Inlet, Point Lookout, NY 
covered by the safety zone. For the reasons outlined in the Regulatory 
Evaluation section above, this rule will not have a significant impact 
on a substantial number of small entities.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under subsection 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory 
Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 [Pub. L. 104-121], the Coast Guard 
wants to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they 
can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the 
rulemaking. 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 Lieutenant D. Miller, 
Chief, Waterways Management Division, Sector Long Island Sound, at 
(203) 468-4596.
    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 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 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 will not concern 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 will 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

[[Page 33683]]

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 
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 the 
categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. 
Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, 
paragraph (34), of the Instruction, from further environmental 
documentation. This rule falls under the provisions of paragraph 
(34)(g) because the rule establishes 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.
