Temporary Final Rule. AGENCY: jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is temporarily revising the security zones in the Port of Tampa, East Bay, Rattlesnake, Sunshine Skyway Bridge and Big Bend for the purpose of providing counter-surveillance, intrusion detection and response measures. Entry into these zones will be prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or his designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective from July 26, 2007 through January 1, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 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. It is necessary to implement these changes immediately to ensure the security of vessels, facilities, and the surrounding areas within the Captain of the Port Sector St. Petersburg Zone. These are temporary modifications of currently existing zones. The Coast Guard does intend to make these changes permanent, and will publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to request public comments before any permanent changes are made. For the same reasons, 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 The Maritime Transportation Security Act mandated Area Maritime Security Committee convened a working group to validate the existing security zones within Tampa Bay that were established following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. These existing security zones included some established September 3, 2003, codified in 33 CFR 165.760, and some established September 1, 2003, codified in § 165.764 (68 FR 47852, August 12, 2003). Using the newly developed Maritime Security Risk Analysis Model tool, the working group evaluated risk to the maritime transportation system (MTS) within Tampa Bay. The results of the risk assessment indicated the need to revise the following established security zones for the purpose of implementing counter-surveillance; and, intrusion detection and response measures: • § 165.760(a)(1), Rattlesnake, Tampa, FL; • § 165.760(a)(3), Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Tampa, FL; • § 165.760(a)(5), Piers, Seawalls, and Facilities, Port of Tampa, Port Sutton and East Bay; • § 165.760(a)(6), Piers, Seawalls, and Facilities, Port of Tampa, East Bay and the eastern side of Hooker’s Point; • § 165.760(a)(7), Piers, Seawalls, and Facilities, Port of Tampa, on the western side of Hooker’s Point; and • § 165.760(a)(8), Piers, Seawalls, and Facilities, Port of Manatee. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 • § 165.764(a)(1), Big Bend, Tampa Bay, Florida zone. The Security Zones revised include 3 zones within the Port of Tampa (Port Sutton and East Bay; East Bay and the eastern side of Hooker’s Point; and the western side of Hooker’s Point), Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Rattlesnake and Big Bend and Port of Manatee. At the Port of Tampa, a minor adjustment to the Security Zone boundary was implemented for alignment with protected assets. The East Bay segment of the Security Zone was discontinued. The Security Zone beneath the Sunshine Skyway Bridge was reduced to the size of the navigable channel. The Rattlesnake area Security Zone was expanded shoreward to protect critical facilities. The Big Bend Security Zone was modified to align with the natural barriers around the facility. Discussion of Rule This temporary rule is establishing the following security zones and will temporarily suspend paragraphs in §§ 165.760 and 165.764 that are being replaced by these new security zones or that are no longer needed. The coordinates are based on North American Datum (NAD) 1983. • Rattlesnake, Tampa, FL. All water from surface to bottom, in Old Tampa Bay east and south of a line commencing at position 27°53.32′ N, 082°32.05′ W; north to 27°53.36′ N, 082°32.05′ W, including the fenced area encompassing the Chemical Formulators Chlorine Facility. • Sunshine Skyway Bridge, FL.

All waters of Tampa Bay, from surface to bottom, adjacent to the Big Bend Power Facility, and within an area bounded by a line connecting the following points: 27°48.08′ N, 082°24.88′ W then northwest to 27°48.15′ N, 082°24.96′ W then southwest to 27°48.10′ N, 082°25.00′ W then south-southwest to 27°47.85′ N, 082°25.03′ W then southeast to 27°47.85′ N, 082°24.79′ W then east to 27°47.55′ N, 082°24.04′ W then north to 27°47.62′ N, 082°84.04′ W then west to 27°47.60′ N, 082°24.72′ W then north to 27°48.03′ N, 082°24.70′ W then northwest to 27°48.08′ N, 082°24.88′ W, closing off entrance to Big Bend Power Facility and the attached cooling canal. Entry into or remaining on or within these zones is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector St. Petersburg or his designated representative. Persons desiring to transit the area of the security zone may contact the Captain of the Port Sector St. Petersburg or his designee on VHF channel 16, or by phone at (727) 824– 7506, to seek permission to transit the area. If permission is granted, all persons and vessels must comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port or his designated representative. 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 to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This rule may have some impact on the public, but these potential impacts will VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:17 Aug 10, 2007 Jkt 211001 be minimized for the following reasons: There is ample room for vessels to navigate around security zones, and there are several locations for recreational and commercial fishing vessels to fish throughout the Tampa Bay Region. Also, the Captain of the Port may, on a case-by-case basis allow persons or vessels to enter a security zone. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have 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 may impact the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels who wish to transit in the areas where the security zones are enforced. This rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities because the majority of the zones are limited in size, leaving ample room for vessels to navigate around the zones. The zones will not significantly impact commuter and passenger vessel traffic patterns, and mariners will be notified of the zones via local notice to mariners and marine broadcasts. Also, the Captain of the Port may on a caseby-case basis allow persons or vessels to enter a security zone. 45163 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. Assistance for Small Entities Protection of Children Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the office listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, for assistance in understanding this rule. 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. 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. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 E:\FR\FM\13AUR1.SGM 13AUR1 45164 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 155 / Monday, August 13, 2007 / Rules and Regulations responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 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. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with RULES 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. An ‘‘Environmental Analysis Check List’’ and a ‘‘Categorical Exclusion Determination’’ are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

Background International Paper operates a pulp and paper mill located in Franklin, Virginia. International Paper is a member of EPA’s voluntary National Environmental Performance Track Program and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s (VADEQ) Environmental Excellence Program. International Paper had entered into a partnership with the U.S. EPA and the VADEQ to implement an innovative approach to meeting environmental regulations in a more cost-effective manner. International Paper submitted a proposal for such an innovative project to VADEQ. International Paper’s innovation project relied on the principles established in the Joint EPA/ State Agreement to Pursue Regulatory Innovation that was signed by EPA and the Environmental Council of States (ECOS) in 1998. The International Paper innovation project includes a number of environmentally beneficial projects that will: (1) Reduce groundwater use; (2) reduce solid waste generation and disposal; (3) reduce chemical and biological oxygen demand, and total suspended solids discharges to surface water; (4) reduce overall emissions for a number of air pollutants; and, (5) increase the efficiency of pulp production. By implementing this project, emissions of hazardous air pollutants will be reduced at the Mill by an estimated 430 tons per year. Emissions increases of criteria pollutants and carbon dioxide from typical NESHAP control strategies will also be reduced under this project. These reductions, along with improvements in the combustion efficiencies of the No. 7 power boiler and No. 6 recovery furnace will result in a decreased use of fossil fuels and will net large decreases in criteria pollutant emissions from the Mill. The reduction in useable fiber discharges in the mill sewer along with improvements in the performance of the wastewater treatment system will result in substantial reductions in discharges of wastewater pollutants. Generation of thousands of tons per year of solid waste will also be eliminated. In order to implement these projects, certain innovations to the typical regulatory implementation process were necessary in order to make these environmentally beneficial projects a reality. First, the International Paper innovation project required an E:\FR\FM\13AUR1.SGM 13AUR1

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary Final Rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is temporarily revising the security zones in 
the Port of Tampa, East Bay, Rattlesnake, Sunshine Skyway Bridge and 
Big Bend for the purpose of providing counter-surveillance, intrusion 
detection and response measures. Entry into these zones will be 
prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or his 
designated representative.

DATES: This rule is effective from July 26, 2007 through January 1, 
2008.

ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in

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. It is necessary to implement 
these changes immediately to ensure the security of vessels, 
facilities, and the surrounding areas within the Captain of the Port 
Sector St. Petersburg Zone. These are temporary modifications of 
currently existing zones. The Coast Guard does intend to make these 
changes permanent, and will publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to 
request public comments before any permanent changes are made.
    For the same reasons, 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

    The Maritime Transportation Security Act mandated Area Maritime 
Security Committee convened a working group to validate the existing 
security zones within Tampa Bay that were established following the 
terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. These existing security zones 
included some established September 3, 2003, codified in 33 CFR 
165.760, and some established September 1, 2003, codified in Sec.  
165.764 (68 FR 47852, August 12, 2003).
    Using the newly developed Maritime Security Risk Analysis Model 
tool, the working group evaluated risk to the maritime transportation 
system (MTS) within Tampa Bay. The results of the risk assessment 
indicated the need to revise the following established security zones 
for the purpose of implementing counter-surveillance; and, intrusion 
detection and response measures:
     Sec.  165.760(a)(1), Rattlesnake, Tampa, FL;
     Sec.  165.760(a)(3), Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Tampa, FL;
     Sec.  165.760(a)(5), Piers, Seawalls, and Facilities, Port 
of Tampa, Port Sutton and East Bay;
     Sec.  165.760(a)(6), Piers, Seawalls, and Facilities, Port 
of Tampa, East Bay and the eastern side of Hooker's Point;
     Sec.  165.760(a)(7), Piers, Seawalls, and Facilities, Port 
of Tampa, on the western side of Hooker's Point; and
     Sec.  165.760(a)(8), Piers, Seawalls, and Facilities, Port 
of Manatee.
     Sec.  165.764(a)(1), Big Bend, Tampa Bay, Florida zone.
    The Security Zones revised include 3 zones within the Port of Tampa 
(Port Sutton and East Bay; East Bay and the eastern side of Hooker's 
Point; and the western side of Hooker's Point), Sunshine Skyway Bridge, 
Rattlesnake and Big Bend and Port of Manatee. At the Port of Tampa, a 
minor adjustment to the Security Zone boundary was implemented for 
alignment with protected assets. The East Bay segment of the Security 
Zone was discontinued. The Security Zone beneath the Sunshine Skyway 
Bridge was reduced to the size of the navigable channel. The 
Rattlesnake area Security Zone was expanded shoreward to protect 
critical facilities. The Big Bend Security Zone was modified to align 
with the natural barriers around the facility.

Discussion of Rule

    This temporary rule is establishing the following security zones 
and will temporarily suspend paragraphs in Sec. Sec.  165.760 and 
165.764 that are being replaced by these new security zones or that are 
no longer needed. The coordinates are based on North American Datum 
(NAD) 1983.

    Entry into or remaining on or within these zones is prohibited 
unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector St. Petersburg or 
his designated representative. Persons desiring to transit the area of 
the security zone may contact the Captain of the Port Sector St. 
Petersburg or his designee on VHF channel 16, or by phone at (727) 824-
7506, to seek permission to transit the area. If permission is granted, 
all persons and vessels must comply with the instructions of the 
Captain of the Port or his designated representative.

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 to be so minimal that a 
full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This rule may have some 
impact on the public, but these potential impacts will be minimized for 
the following reasons: There is ample room for vessels to navigate 
around security zones, and there are several locations for recreational 
and commercial fishing vessels to fish throughout the Tampa Bay Region. 
Also, the Captain of the Port may, on a case-by-case basis allow 
persons or vessels to enter a security zone.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
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 may impact the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels who wish to 
transit in the areas where the security zones are enforced. This rule 
will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small 
entities because the majority of the zones are limited in size, leaving 
ample room for vessels to navigate around the zones. The zones will not 
significantly impact commuter and passenger vessel traffic patterns, 
and mariners will be notified of the zones via local notice to mariners 
and marine broadcasts. Also, the Captain of the Port may on a case-by-
case basis allow persons or vessels to enter a security zone.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed rule so that they can better 
evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the 
rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please contact the office listed under FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, for assistance in understanding this rule. 
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 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

[[Page 45164]]

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. An ``Environmental Analysis Check List'' and a 
``Categorical Exclusion Determination'' are available in the docket 
where indicated under ADDRESSES.
