FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Jasmin Parker, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Honolulu at (808) 842–2600. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this temporary rule. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM. It would be contrary to the public interest to delay implementing this temporary rule, as any delay might result in damage or injury to the public, vessels, and facilities in the area of Molokini Crater. For the same reasons, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this temporary rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Although the Coast Guard has good cause to issue this temporary rule without first publishing a proposed rule, you are invited to submit postpromulgation comments and related material regarding this rule through February 8, 2008. All comments will be reviewed as they are received. Your comments will assist us in drafting future rules should they be necessary, and may cause us to change this temporary final rule before it expires. All comments received will be posted, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov and will include any personal information you have provided. We have an agreement with the Department of Transportation (DOT) for their Docket Management Facility to process online submissions to Coast Guard dockets. You may review the Department of Transportation’s Privacy Act Statement in the Federal Register published on April 11, 2000 (65 FR E:\FR\FM\28JAR1.SGM 28JAR1 4696 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 18 / Monday, January 28, 2008 / Rules and Regulations 19477), or you may visit http:// DocketsInfo.dot.gov. Background and Purpose During a cite survey on Molokini Crater, surveyors discovered three pieces of unexploded ordnance requiring disposal. The Coast Guard, in consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the State of Hawaii, the City and County of Maui, the U.S. Navy, and the Federal Aviation Administration, has determined it is necessary to close the area in the vicinity of Molokini Crater in order to minimize the dangers that fragmentation, explosive arcs, and possible fires may present to persons and vessels. Should such an incident occur, or in the event that EOD personnel would require emergency assistance, rescuers must have immediate and unencumbered access to the area. Also, vessels operating in the area might otherwise distract EOD and rescue personnel. The Coast Guard, through this action, intends to promote the safety of personnel, vessels, and facilities in the area of Molokini Crater. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with RULES Discussion of Rule This temporary safety zone encompasses all waters up to and within one nautical mile of the shoreline of Molokini Crater, from the surface of the water to the ocean floor. It is effective from January 27, 2008 through February 8, 2008, but will be enforced for periods of ten hours or less on the effective dates. Unpredictable weather and sea states make a broad date and time range necessary to safely complete the EOD. Enforcement periods will be announced over marine band VHF channel 16 prior to enforcement to ensure ample public notification. In accordance with the general regulations in 33 CFR part 165, subpart C, no person or vessel is permitted to enter or remain in the zone except for support vessels/ aircraft and support personnel, or other vessels authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated representatives. Vessels, aircraft, or persons in violation of this rule are subject to the penalties set forth in 33 U.S.C. 1232 and 50 U.S.C. 192. Regulatory Evaluation This rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under § 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under § 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order.The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this rule to be so VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:32 Jan 25, 2008 Jkt 214001 minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This expectation is based on the limited duration of the zone and the limited geographic area affected by it. 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 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. We expect that there will be little impact to small entities due to the narrowly tailored scope of this safety zone. 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 (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 this rule will affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Jasmin Parker, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Honolulu at (808) 842– 2600. 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 either preempts State law or imposes a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 proposed rule will not affect 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 would 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 E:\FR\FM\28JAR1.SGM 28JAR1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 18 / Monday, January 28, 2008 / Rules and Regulations 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 is 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, which guides 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 limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g) of the Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, this rule is categorically excluded from further environmental documentation. An ‘‘Environmental Analysis Checklist’’ and ‘‘Categorical Exclusion Determination’’ are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This rule identifies communities, where the sale of flood insurance has been authorized under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), that are scheduled for suspension on the effective dates listed within this rule because of noncompliance with the floodplain management requirements of the PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 4697 program. If the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) receives documentation that the community has adopted the required floodplain management measures prior to the effective suspension date given in this rule, the suspension will not occur and a notice of this will be provided by publication in the Federal Register on a subsequent date. DATES: Effective Dates: The effective date of each community’s scheduled suspension is the third date (‘‘Susp.’’) listed in the third column of the following tables. ADDRESSES: If you want to determine whether a particular community was suspended on the suspension date, contact the appropriate FEMA Regional Office. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Stearrett, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–2953. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NFIP enables property owners to purchase flood insurance which is generally not otherwise available. In return, communities agree to adopt and administer local floodplain management aimed at protecting lives and new construction from future flooding. Section 1315 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4022, prohibits flood insurance coverage as authorized under the NFIP, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.; unless an appropriate public body adopts adequate floodplain management measures with effective enforcement measures. The communities listed in this document no longer meet that statutory requirement for compliance with program regulations, 44 CFR part 59. Accordingly, the communities will be suspended on the effective date in the third column. As of that date, flood insurance will no longer be available in the community. However, some of these communities may adopt and submit the required documentation of legally enforceable floodplain management measures after this rule is published but prior to the actual suspension date. These communities will not be suspended and will continue their eligibility for the sale of insurance. A notice withdrawing the suspension of the communities will be published in the Federal Register. In addition, FEMA has identified the Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in these communities by publishing a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory Information

    We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this 
temporary rule. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that 
good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM. It would be contrary to 
the public interest to delay implementing this temporary rule, as any 
delay might result in damage or injury to the public, vessels, and 
facilities in the area of Molokini Crater. For the same reasons, under 
5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for 
making this temporary rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register.
    Although the Coast Guard has good cause to issue this temporary 
rule without first publishing a proposed rule, you are invited to 
submit post-promulgation comments and related material regarding this 
rule through February 8, 2008. All comments will be reviewed as they 
are received. Your comments will assist us in drafting future rules 
should they be necessary, and may cause us to change this temporary 
final rule before it expires.
    All comments received will be posted, without change, to http://
www.regulations.gov and will include any personal information you have 
provided. We have an agreement with the Department of Transportation 
(DOT) for their Docket Management Facility to process online 
submissions to Coast Guard dockets. You may review the Department of 
Transportation's Privacy Act Statement in the Federal Register 
published on April 11, 2000 (65 FR

Background and Purpose

    During a cite survey on Molokini Crater, surveyors discovered three 
pieces of unexploded ordnance requiring disposal. The Coast Guard, in 
consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the State of 
Hawaii, the City and County of Maui, the U.S. Navy, and the Federal 
Aviation Administration, has determined it is necessary to close the 
area in the vicinity of Molokini Crater in order to minimize the 
dangers that fragmentation, explosive arcs, and possible fires may 
present to persons and vessels. Should such an incident occur, or in 
the event that EOD personnel would require emergency assistance, 
rescuers must have immediate and unencumbered access to the area. Also, 
vessels operating in the area might otherwise distract EOD and rescue 
personnel. The Coast Guard, through this action, intends to promote the 
safety of personnel, vessels, and facilities in the area of Molokini 
Crater.

Discussion of Rule

    This temporary safety zone encompasses all waters up to and within 
one nautical mile of the shoreline of Molokini Crater, from the surface 
of the water to the ocean floor. It is effective from January 27, 2008 
through February 8, 2008, but will be enforced for periods of ten hours 
or less on the effective dates. Unpredictable weather and sea states 
make a broad date and time range necessary to safely complete the EOD. 
Enforcement periods will be announced over marine band VHF channel 16 
prior to enforcement to ensure ample public notification. In accordance 
with the general regulations in 33 CFR part 165, subpart C, no person 
or vessel is permitted to enter or remain in the zone except for 
support vessels/aircraft and support personnel, or other vessels 
authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated 
representatives. Vessels, aircraft, or persons in violation of this 
rule are subject to the penalties set forth in 33 U.S.C. 1232 and 50 
U.S.C. 192.

Regulatory Evaluation

    This rule is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Sec.  
3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does 
not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under Sec.  
6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not 
reviewed it under that Order.The Coast Guard expects the economic 
impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation 
is unnecessary. This expectation is based on the limited duration of 
the zone and the limited geographic area affected by it.

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 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. We expect that there will be little impact to small entities 
due to the narrowly tailored scope of this safety zone.
    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 (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 this 
rule will affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please contact Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Jasmin 
Parker, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Honolulu at (808) 842-2600. 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 either preempts State law or imposes 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 proposed rule will not affect 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 would 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

[[Page 4697]]

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 is 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, 
which guides 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 limit the 
use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. 
Therefore, under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(g) of the Commandant 
Instruction M16475.1D, this rule is categorically excluded from further 
environmental documentation. An ``Environmental Analysis Checklist'' 
and ``Categorical Exclusion Determination'' are available in the docket 
where indicated under ADDRESSES.
