These personnel comprise commissioned, warrant and petty officers of the U.S. Coast Guard. Upon being hailed by a U.S. Coast Guard vessel by siren, radio, flashing light or other means, the operator of the vessel shall proceed as directed. (c) Enforcement period. This section will be enforced from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, June 30, 2007. Dated: June 15, 2007. D.A. Ronan, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port, Long Island Sound. [FR Doc. E7–12366 Filed 6–26–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–15–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 165 [CGD01–07–036] Regulatory History We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. As the fireworks display is scheduled to occur on July 1, 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 Hingham Inner Harbor during the fireworks display thus ensuring that the maritime public is protected from any potential harm associated with such an event. Additionally, the zone should have negligible impact on vessel transits due to the fact that vessels will be limited from the area for only two hours and fifteen minutes and vessels can still transit in the majority of Hingham Inner Harbor during the event. Accordingly, under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM. For the same reasons, the Coast Guard finds, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Background and Purpose RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone: Hingham 4th of July Fireworks Display, Hingham, MA Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for the Town of Hingham Fourth of July Fireworks on July 1, 2007. 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 Hingham Inner Harbor during its closure period. DATES: This rule is effective from 8:45 p.m. on July 1, 2007 until 11 p.m. on July 2, 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 CGD01–07–036 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. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Petty Officer Joseph Yonker, Sector Boston, Waterways Management Division, at (617) 223–5007. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:11 Jun 26, 2007 Jkt 211001 This rule establishes a safety zone on the navigable waters of Hingham Inner Harbor within a 500-yard radius of the fireworks barge located at approximate position 42°015.30′ N, 070 °53.02′ W. The safety zone is in effect from 8:45 p.m. until 11 p.m. on July 1, 2007. The rain date for the fireworks event is from 8:45 p.m. until 11 p.m. on July 2, 2007. The safety zone temporarily restricts movement within this portion of Hingham Inner 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 enforcement period. The Captain of the Port does not anticipate any negative impact on vessel traffic due to the event. Public notification will be made prior to the enforcement period via marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners. 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. Although this rule prevents vessel traffic from transiting a portion of Hingham Inner Harbor during the PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 35169 enforcement period, the effects of this regulation will not be significant for several reasons: vessels will be excluded from the proscribed area for only two hours and fifteen minutes, vessels will be able to operate in the majority of Hingham Inner 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 Hingham Inner Harbor from 8:45 p.m. until 11 p.m. on July 1, 2007. The rain date for the fireworks event is from 8:45 p.m. until 11 p.m. on July 2, 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 two hours and fifteen minutes, vessel traffic can safely pass around the zone, and advance notification 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. 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 E:\FR\FM\27JNR1.SGM 27JNR1 35170 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 123 / Wednesday, June 27, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:11 Jun 26, 2007 Jkt 211001 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 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 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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.

An NPRM VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:11 Jun 26, 2007 Jkt 211001 was not published for this regulation because the logistics with respect to the fireworks presentation were not determined with sufficient time to draft and publish an NPRM. Any delay encountered in this 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 the Pickering Wharf Channel during the fireworks display and to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters. 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 contrary to the public interest since the safety zone is needed to prevent traffic from transiting a portion of the Pickering Wharf Channel during the fireworks event thus ensuring that the maritime public is protected from any potential harm associated with such an event. The safety zone should have a minimal negative impact on vessel transits in the Pickering Wharf Channel because vessels will be excluded from the area for only one and a half hours, and vessels can still operate in other areas of the channel during the event. Background and Purpose ‘‘City of Salem’’, the organization responsible for Salem Celebrates the 4th of July, is holding a fireworks display in honor of Independence Day. This rule establishes a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of the Pickering Wharf Channel within a four hundred (400) yard radius of the fireworks launch site located at approximate position 42°31.05′ N, 070°52.05′ W. This safety zone is necessary to protect the maritime public from the dangers posed by this event. It will protect the public by prohibiting entry into or movement within the proscribed portion of the Pickering Wharf Channel during the fireworks display. Marine traffic may transit safely outside of the safety zone during the enforcement period. The Captain of the Port does not anticipate any negative impact on vessel traffic due to this event. Public notification will be made prior to and during the effective period via marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners. Discussion of Rule This rule is effective from 8:45 p.m. until 10:15 p.m. on July 4, 2007. Marine traffic may transit safely outside of the safety zone in the majority of the Pickering Wharf Channel during the event. Given the limited time-frame of PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 35171 the enforcement period of the safety zone, the size of the channel and the size of the safety zone itself, the Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on vessel traffic due to this event.

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. Although this rule will prevent traffic from transiting a portion of the Pickering Wharf Channel during this event, the effect of this rule will not be significant for several reasons: vessels will be excluded from the area of the safety zone for only one and one-half hours, although vessels will not be able to transit the channel in the vicinity of the safety zone, they will be able to operate in other areas of the channel during the enforcement period; and advance notification will be made to the local maritime community by marine information broadcasts and Local Notice to Mariners.

Safety Zone: Hingham 4th of July Fireworks Display, Hingham, MA

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for 
the Town of Hingham Fourth of July Fireworks on July 1, 2007. 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 Hingham Inner Harbor during its closure period.

DATES: This rule is effective from 8:45 p.m. on July 1, 2007 until 11 
p.m. on July 2, 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 CGD01-07-036 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.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Petty Officer Joseph Yonker, Sector 
Boston, Waterways Management Division, at (617) 223-5007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory History

    We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this 
regulation. As the fireworks display is scheduled to occur on July 1, 
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 Hingham Inner Harbor 
during the fireworks display thus ensuring that the maritime public is 
protected from any potential harm associated with such an event. 
Additionally, the zone should have negligible impact on vessel transits 
due to the fact that vessels will be limited from the area for only two 
hours and fifteen minutes and vessels can still transit in the majority 
of Hingham Inner Harbor during the event. Accordingly, under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not 
publishing an NPRM.
    For the same reasons, the Coast Guard finds, under 5 U.S.C. 
553(d)(3), 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 
Hingham Inner Harbor within a 500-yard radius of the fireworks barge 
located at approximate position 42[deg]015.30' N, 070 [deg]53.02' W. 
The safety zone is in effect from 8:45 p.m. until 11 p.m. on July 1, 
2007. The rain date for the fireworks event is from 8:45 p.m. until 11 
p.m. on July 2, 2007.
    The safety zone temporarily restricts movement within this portion 
of Hingham Inner 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 enforcement period. The 
Captain of the Port does not anticipate any negative impact on vessel 
traffic due to the event. Public notification will be made prior to the 
enforcement period via marine information broadcasts and Local Notice 
to Mariners.

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.
    Although this rule prevents vessel traffic from transiting a 
portion of Hingham Inner Harbor during the enforcement period, the 
effects of this regulation will not be significant for several reasons: 
vessels will be excluded from the proscribed area for only two hours 
and fifteen minutes, vessels will be able to operate in the majority of 
Hingham Inner 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 Hingham Inner Harbor from 8:45 p.m. until 11 
p.m. on July 1, 2007. The rain date for the fireworks event is from 
8:45 p.m. until 11 p.m. on July 2, 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 two hours and fifteen minutes, vessel 
traffic can safely pass around the zone, and advance notification 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.
    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

[[Page 35170]]

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 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 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. A final ``Environmental Analysis Check List'' 
and a final ``Categorical Exclusion Determination'' will be available 
in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.
