The proposed modification to this existing restricted area is described below. This request has been made to increase safety and security of naval operations at Naval Magazine, Indian Island.

The Corps expects that the proposed modification to the existing restricted area would have practically no economic impact on the public, and would create no anticipated navigational hazard or interference with existing waterway traffic. c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. The Corps has concluded, based on the minor nature of the proposed rule, that the addition of and amendment to a restricted area, if adopted, will not be a major federal action having a significant impact on the quality of the human environment, and preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. An environmental assessment will be prepared after all comments have been received and considered. After it is prepared, the environmental assessment may be reviewed at the district office listed at the end of the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. d. Unfunded Mandates Act.

of Engineers, Seattle District, at 206-764-6878.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of 
the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat. 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and 
Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat. 892; 33 
U.S.C. 3) the Corps is proposing to amend the restricted area 
regulations in 33 CFR part 334 by modifying the area at Sec.  334.1270. 
The proposed modification to this existing restricted area is described 
below. This request has been made to increase safety and security of 
naval operations at Naval Magazine, Indian Island.
    In addition to the publication of the proposed rule, the Seattle 
District Engineer is concurrently soliciting public comment on the 
proposed rule by distribution of a public notice to all known 
interested parties.

Procedural Requirements

    a. Review Under Executive Order 12866. This proposed rule is issued 
with respect to a military function of the United States and the 
provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply.
    b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This proposed rule 
has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96-354, 
5 U.S.C. 601) which requires the preparation of a regulatory 
flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (i.e., small 
businesses and small governments). The Corps expects that the proposed 
modification to the existing restricted area would have practically no 
economic impact on the public, and would create no anticipated 
navigational hazard or interference with existing waterway traffic.
    c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. The Corps 
has concluded, based on the minor nature of the proposed rule, that the 
addition of and amendment to a restricted area, if adopted, will not be 
a major federal action having a significant impact on the quality of 
the human environment, and preparation of an environmental impact 
statement is not required. An environmental assessment will be prepared 
after all comments have been received and considered. After it is 
prepared, the environmental assessment may be reviewed at the district 
office listed at the end of the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above.
    d. Unfunded Mandates Act. The proposed rule does not impose an 
enforceable duty among the private sector and, therefore, is not a 
Federal private sector mandate and is not subject to the requirements 
of Section 202 or 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (Pub. L. 104-
4). We have also found under Section 203 of the Act, that small 
governments will not be significantly or uniquely affected by this 
rulemaking.
