Temporary final rule. AGENCY: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the navigable waters of San Francisco Bay for the loading, transport, and launching of fireworks used during a San Francisco Giants baseball game fireworks display to be held on July 27, 2007. This safety zone is established to ensure the safety of participants and spectators. Unauthorized persons or vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining in the safety zone without permission of the Captain of the Port or his designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective from 11 a.m. to 10:20 p.m. on July 27, 2007. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:09 Jul 20, 2007 Jkt 211001 docket, are part of the docket COTP San Francisco Bay 07–031 and are available for inspection or copying at Coast Guard Sector San Francisco, 1 Yerba Buena Island, San Francisco, California, 94130, between 9 a.m. and 4 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. Logistical details surrounding the event were not finalized and presented to the Coast Guard in time to draft and publish an NPRM. As such, the event would occur before the rulemaking process was complete. Because of the dangers posed by the pyrotechnics used in this fireworks display, a safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of event participants, spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event area. For the safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to have this regulation in effect during the event. For the same reasons listed in the previous paragraph, 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 in the effective date of this rule would expose mariners to the dangers posed by the pyrotechnics used in this fireworks display. Background and Purpose Giants Enterprises is sponsoring a brief fireworks display on July 27, 2007, in the waters of San Francisco Bay near AT&T Park. The Coast Guard has granted the event sponsor a marine event permit for the fireworks display. The fireworks display is meant for entertainment purposes as a finale to a San Francisco Giants baseball game. This rule is being issued to establish a temporary regulated area in San Francisco Bay around the fireworks launch barge during loading of the pyrotechnics, during the transit of the barge to the display location, and during the fireworks display. The safety zone is necessary to protect spectators, vessels, and other property from the hazards associated with the pyrotechnics on the fireworks barge. Discussion of Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on specified PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 40075 waters of the San Francisco Bay. During the loading of the fireworks barge, while the barge is being towed to the display location, and until the start of the fireworks display, the safety zone will apply to the navigable waters around and under the fireworks barge within a radius of 100 feet. Fifteen minutes prior to and during the fifteen minute fireworks display, the area to which this safety zone applies to will increase in size to encompass the navigable waters around and under the fireworks barge within a radius of 1,000 feet. Loading of the pyrotechnics onto the fireworks barge is scheduled to commence at 11 a.m. on July 27, 2007, and will take place at Pier 50 in San Francisco. Towing of the barge from Pier 50 to the display location is scheduled to take place on July 27, 2007. During the fireworks display, scheduled to commence at approximately 10 p.m., the fireworks barge will be located approximately 500–1,000 feet off of Pier 48 in position 37°46′35″ N, 122°23′00″ W. The effect of the temporary safety zone will be to restrict general navigation in the vicinity of the fireworks barge while the fireworks are loaded at Pier 50, during the transit of the fireworks barge, and until the conclusion of the scheduled display. Except for persons or vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the safety zone. This safety zone is needed to keep spectators and vessels a safe distance away from the fireworks barge to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and transiting vessels. 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 restricts access to the waters encompassed by the safety zone, the effect of this rule will not be significant because the local waterway users will be notified via public broadcast notice to mariners to ensure the safety zone will result in minimum impact. The entities most likely to be affected are pleasure craft engaged in recreational activities. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a E:\FR\FM\23JYR1.SGM 23JYR1 40076 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 140 / Monday, July 23, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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 is not expected to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of entities, some of which may be small entities. This rule may affect owners and operators of pleasure craft engaged in recreational activities and sightseeing. This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for several reasons: (i) Vessel traffic can pass safely around the area, (ii) vessels engaged in recreational activities and sightseeing have ample space outside of the effected portion of San Francisco Bay to engage in these activities, (iii) this rule will encompass only a small portion of the waterway for a limited period of time, and (iv) the maritime public will be advised in advance of this safety zone via public notice to mariners. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES 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. If the rule will affect your small business, organization, or government jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions, options for compliance, or assistance in understanding this rule, please contact Ensign Sheral Richardson, U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Francisco, at (415) 556–2950 extension 136. 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:09 Jul 20, 2007 Jkt 211001 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. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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.lD 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)(g), of the Instruction, from further environmental documentation. Paragraph (34)(g) is applicable because this 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.

navigable waters of San Francisco Bay for the loading, transport, and 
launching of fireworks used during a San Francisco Giants baseball game 
fireworks display to be held on July 27, 2007. This safety zone is 
established to ensure the safety of participants and spectators. 
Unauthorized persons or vessels are prohibited from entering into, 
transiting through, or remaining in the safety zone without permission 
of the Captain of the Port or his designated representative.

DATES: This rule is effective from 11 a.m. to 10:20 p.m. on July 27, 
2007.

Guard Sector San Francisco, at (415) 556-2950 extension 136.

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. Logistical details surrounding 
the event were not finalized and presented to the Coast Guard in time 
to draft and publish an NPRM. As such, the event would occur before the 
rulemaking process was complete. Because of the dangers posed by the 
pyrotechnics used in this fireworks display, a safety zone is necessary 
to provide for the safety of event participants, spectator craft, and 
other vessels transiting the event area. For the safety concerns noted, 
it is in the public interest to have this regulation in effect during 
the event.
    For the same reasons listed in the previous paragraph, 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 in the effective date of this rule would 
expose mariners to the dangers posed by the pyrotechnics used in this 
fireworks display.

Background and Purpose

    Giants Enterprises is sponsoring a brief fireworks display on July 
27, 2007, in the waters of San Francisco Bay near AT&T Park. The Coast 
Guard has granted the event sponsor a marine event permit for the 
fireworks display. The fireworks display is meant for entertainment 
purposes as a finale to a San Francisco Giants baseball game. This rule 
is being issued to establish a temporary regulated area in San 
Francisco Bay around the fireworks launch barge during loading of the 
pyrotechnics, during the transit of the barge to the display location, 
and during the fireworks display. The safety zone is necessary to 
protect spectators, vessels, and other property from the hazards 
associated with the pyrotechnics on the fireworks barge.

Discussion of Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on 
specified waters of the San Francisco Bay. During the loading of the 
fireworks barge, while the barge is being towed to the display 
location, and until the start of the fireworks display, the safety zone 
will apply to the navigable waters around and under the fireworks barge 
within a radius of 100 feet. Fifteen minutes prior to and during the 
fifteen minute fireworks display, the area to which this safety zone 
applies to will increase in size to encompass the navigable waters 
around and under the fireworks barge within a radius of 1,000 feet. 
Loading of the pyrotechnics onto the fireworks barge is scheduled to 
commence at 11 a.m. on July 27, 2007, and will take place at Pier 50 in 
San Francisco. Towing of the barge from Pier 50 to the display location 
is scheduled to take place on July 27, 2007. During the fireworks 
display, scheduled to commence at approximately 10 p.m., the fireworks 
barge will be located approximately 500-1,000 feet off of Pier 48 in 
position 37[deg]46'35'' N, 122[deg]23'00'' W.
    The effect of the temporary safety zone will be to restrict general 
navigation in the vicinity of the fireworks barge while the fireworks 
are loaded at Pier 50, during the transit of the fireworks barge, and 
until the conclusion of the scheduled display. Except for persons or 
vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, no person or 
vessel may enter or remain in the safety zone. This safety zone is 
needed to keep spectators and vessels a safe distance away from the 
fireworks barge to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and 
transiting vessels.

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 restricts access to the waters encompassed by 
the safety zone, the effect of this rule will not be significant 
because the local waterway users will be notified via public broadcast 
notice to mariners to ensure the safety zone will result in minimum 
impact. The entities most likely to be affected are pleasure craft 
engaged in recreational activities.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule would have a

[[Page 40076]]

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 is 
not expected to have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of entities, some of which may be small entities. This rule may 
affect owners and operators of pleasure craft engaged in recreational 
activities and sightseeing. This rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for several 
reasons: (i) Vessel traffic can pass safely around the area, (ii) 
vessels engaged in recreational activities and sightseeing have ample 
space outside of the effected portion of San Francisco Bay to engage in 
these activities, (iii) this rule will encompass only a small portion 
of the waterway for a limited period of time, and (iv) the maritime 
public will be advised in advance of this safety zone via public 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. If the 
rule will affect your small business, organization, or government 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions, options 
for compliance, or assistance in understanding this rule, please 
contact Ensign Sheral Richardson, U.S. Coast Guard Sector San 
Francisco, at (415) 556-2950 extension 136.
    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 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. 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.lD 
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)(g), of the Instruction, from further environmental 
documentation. Paragraph (34)(g) is applicable because this 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.

launch barge within a radius of 1,000 feet. During the fireworks 
display, scheduled to start at approximately 10 p.m. on July 27, 2007, 
the barge will be located approximately 500-1,000 feet off of San

scheduled termination time, the Coast Guard will cease enforcement of 
this safety zone and will announce that fact via Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners.
    (c) Regulations. (1) In accordance with the general regulations in 
Sec.  165.23 of this part, entry into, transit through, or anchoring 
within this safety zone by all vessels and persons is prohibited, 
unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port, San 
Francisco, or his designated representative.
    (2) All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of 
the Coast Guard Captain of the Port, San Francisco, or the designated 
representative.
    (3) Designated representative means any commissioned, warrant, and 
petty officer of the Coast Guard onboard a Coast Guard, Coast Guard 
Auxiliary, local, state, or federal law enforcement vessel who is 
authorized to act on behalf of the Captain of the Port, San Francisco.
    (4) Upon being hailed by U.S. Coast Guard patrol personnel by 
siren, radio, flashing light, or other means, the operator of a vessel 
shall proceed as directed. Person and vessels may request permission to 
enter the safety zone on VHF-16 or via telephone at (415) 399-3547.
    (5) The U.S. Coast Guard may be assisted in the patrol and 
enforcement of this safety zone by local law enforcement as necessary.
