Temporary final rule. AGENCY: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for the Labor Day Celebration Fireworks off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, 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 p.m. on September 1, 2007 until 10 p.m. on September 2, 2007. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:51 Aug 27, 2007 Jkt 211001 docket, are part of docket CGD01–07– 116 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. 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 in sufficient time to conduct a notice and comment period, 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 vessel traffic from transiting a navigable portion of Hog Island Channel off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, 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 a single day and the area closed by the safety zone is minimal, thus allowing vessels to transit around the zone on Hog Island Channel off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, NY. Background and Purpose The Labor Day Celebration Fireworks display will be taking place off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, NY from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on September 1, 2007. If the fireworks display is cancelled due to inclement weather on September 1, 2007, it will take place from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on September 2, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 49193 Hog Island Channel one hour prior to, during and one hour after the stated event. Discussion of Rule This regulation establishes a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, NY within a 300-foot radius of the fireworks launch site located at approximate position 40°36′30.947″ N, 073°39′22.226″ 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 navigable portion of Hog Island Channel off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, NY to provide for the protection of life and property of the maritime public. The safety zone will be enforced from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. on September 1, 2007 and if the event is postponed due to inclement weather, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on September 2, 2007. Marine traffic may transit safely outside of the safety zone during the event thereby allowing navigation of the rest of the Hog Island Channel except for the portion delineated by this rule. The Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on vessel traffic because of this safety zone due to the limited area covered by this safety zone and the short enforcement period. 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. 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 two hours and vessels will be able to operate in other areas of Hog Island Channel, Island Park, 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 E:\FR\FM\28AUR1.SGM 28AUR1 49194 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 166 / Tuesday, August 28, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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 Sag Harbor 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 pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 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. 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. Collection of Information 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. This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:51 Aug 27, 2007 Jkt 211001 PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 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 as 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.

RIN 1625-AA00


Safety Zone: Labor Day Celebration Fireworks, Village Beach 
Fishing Pier, Hog Island Channel, Island Park, NY

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for 
the Labor Day Celebration Fireworks off Village Beach Fishing Pier, 
Island Park, 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 p.m. on September 1, 2007 until 10 
p.m. on September 2, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in 
the docket, are part of docket CGD01-07-116 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.

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 in 
sufficient time to conduct a notice and comment period, 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 vessel 
traffic from transiting a navigable portion of Hog Island Channel off 
Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, 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 a single day and the area closed by the safety zone is 
minimal, thus allowing vessels to transit around the zone on Hog Island 
Channel off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, NY.

Background and Purpose

    The Labor Day Celebration Fireworks display will be taking place 
off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, NY from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. 
on September 1, 2007. If the fireworks display is cancelled due to 
inclement weather on September 1, 2007, it will take place from 8 p.m. 
to 10 p.m. on September 2, 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 Hog Island 
Channel one hour prior to, during and one hour after the stated event.

Discussion of Rule

    This regulation establishes a temporary safety zone on the 
navigable waters off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island Park, NY within 
a 300-foot radius of the fireworks launch site located at approximate 
position 40[deg]36'30.947'' N, 073[deg]39'22.226'' 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 navigable 
portion of Hog Island Channel off Village Beach Fishing Pier, Island 
Park, NY to provide for the protection of life and property of the 
maritime public. The safety zone will be enforced from 8 p.m. until 10 
p.m. on September 1, 2007 and if the event is postponed due to 
inclement weather, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on September 2, 2007. Marine 
traffic may transit safely outside of the safety zone during the event 
thereby allowing navigation of the rest of the Hog Island Channel 
except for the portion delineated by this rule.
    The Captain of the Port anticipates minimal negative impact on 
vessel traffic because of this safety zone due to the limited area 
covered by this safety zone and the short enforcement period. 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.
    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 two hours 
and vessels will be able to operate in other areas of Hog Island 
Channel, Island Park, 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

[[Page 49194]]

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 Sag Harbor 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 section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 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. 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 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 as 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.
