SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On March 12, 2008, an NPRM was published in the Federal Register for Airspace Docket No. 08–AAL–6, FAA Docket No. FAA–2008–0111 (73 FR 13159), revoking Area Navigation Jet Routes J–889R and J–996R in Alaska. Subsequent to publication, it was found that the FAA docket number was incorrect; the correct number is FAA– 2008–0180. In addition, the reference to one Area Navigation Jet Route was incorrectly stated in the title of the NPRM. The correct Jet Route should have stated J–888R, instead of J–889R. This action corrects those errors. Correction to Final Rule Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the FAA docket number and the title of the NPRM as published in the Federal Register on March 12, 2008 (73 FR 13159), Airspace Docket No. 08–AAL–6, FAA Docket No. FAA–2008–0111, and incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1, is corrected as follows: DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION § 71.1 Federal Aviation Administration On page 13159, correct the FAA docket number and the title to read as follows: * * * * * 14 CFR Part 71 [Docket FAA No. FAA–2008–0180; Airspace Docket No. 08–AAL–6] * Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

In that rule, the FAA docket number is incorrect. The correct FAA docket number should state FAA–2008– 0180, instead of FAA–2008–0111. In addition, a typographical error to one Jet Route was made in the title. The title of the NPRM should reference Jet Route J– 888R, instead of J–889R. This action corrects those errors.

Background and Purpose The Coast Guard would be establishing a safety zone on the navigable waters of San Diego Bay in support of the Red Bull Air Races. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the crews, spectators, and participants of the race and is also necessary to protect other vessels and users of the waterway. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard proposes to establish a safety zone that would be enforced from 8 a.m. through 7 p.m. from April 29th, 2008 through May 4th, 2008. This safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the crews, spectators, and participants of the Red Bull Air Race and to protect other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels will be prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or his designated representative. The limits of this temporary safety zone include all areas within a box that extends to the following coordinates: 32°42′41.00″ N, 117°10′33.06″ W; 32°42′26.40″ N, 117°10′55.69″ W; 32°41′57.22″ N, 117° 9′33.05″ W; and 32°41′45.04″ N, 117° 9′54.28″ W. Coast Guard personnel will enforce this safety zone. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other Federal, State, or local agencies, including the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Section 165.23 of Title 33, Code of Federal Regulations, prohibits any unauthorized person or vessel from entering or remaining in a safety zone. Vessels or persons violating this section will be subject to both criminal and civil penalties. Regulatory Evaluation This proposed 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 proposed rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. The safety zone is of a limited duration, only eleven hours per day for a period of four days, and is limited to a relatively small geographic area. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 18223 whether this proposed 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 proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. (1) The propsed rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in a portion of the safety zone in San Diego Bay, San Diego, CA, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on April 29th, 2008 through May 4th, 2008. (2) This safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This rule only encompasses only a portion of the waterway, there will be chances for boating traffic to pass through the safety zone and the Captain of the Port may authorize entry into the zone, if necessary. 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 the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact Petty Officer Adam Proctor, Waterways Management Division, U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Diego at telephone (619) 278–7277. 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 proposed rule would call for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). E:\FR\FM\03APP1.SGM 03APP1 18224 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 65 / Thursday, April 3, 2008 / Proposed Rules Federalism Energy Effects 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 proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. We have analyzed this proposed 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. 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 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with PROPOSALS Indian Tribal Governments This proposed 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:52 Apr 02, 2008 Jkt 214001 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.lD which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have made a preliminary determination that this action is not likely to have a significant effect on the human environment. A preliminary ‘‘Environmental Analysis Check List’’ supporting this preliminary determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, and Waterways.

Background and Purpose

    The Coast Guard would be establishing a safety zone on the 
navigable waters of San Diego Bay in support of the Red Bull Air Races. 
This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of 
the crews, spectators, and participants of the race and is also 
necessary to protect other vessels and users of the waterway.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard proposes to establish a safety zone that would be 
enforced from 8 a.m. through 7 p.m. from April 29th, 2008 through May 
4th, 2008. This safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of 
the crews, spectators, and participants of the Red Bull Air Race and to 
protect other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels 
will be prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring 
within this safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, 
or his designated representative. The limits of this temporary safety 
zone include all areas within a box that extends to the following 
coordinates: 32[deg]42'41.00'' N, 117[deg]10'33.06'' W; 
32[deg]42'26.40'' N, 117[deg]10'55.69'' W; 32[deg]41'57.22'' N, 
117[deg] 9'33.05'' W; and 32[deg]41'45.04'' N, 117[deg] 9'54.28'' W. 
Coast Guard personnel will enforce this safety zone. The Coast Guard 
may be assisted by other Federal, State, or local agencies, including 
the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Section 165.23 of Title 33, Code of Federal 
Regulations, prohibits any unauthorized person or vessel from entering 
or remaining in a safety zone. Vessels or persons violating this 
section will be subject to both criminal and civil penalties.

Regulatory Evaluation

    This proposed 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 proposed rule to be so 
minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary.
    The safety zone is of a limited duration, only eleven hours per day 
for a period of four days, and is limited to a relatively small 
geographic area.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this proposed 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 proposed 
rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities.
    (1) The propsed rule will affect the following entities, some of 
which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels 
intending to transit or anchor in a portion of the safety zone in San 
Diego Bay, San Diego, CA, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on April 29th, 2008 
through May 4th, 2008.
    (2) This safety zone would not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. 
This rule only encompasses only a portion of the waterway, there will 
be chances for boating traffic to pass through the safety zone and the 
Captain of the Port may authorize entry into the zone, if necessary.
    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 the 
rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please contact Petty Officer Adam Proctor, 
Waterways Management Division, U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Diego at 
telephone (619) 278-7277. 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 proposed rule would call 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 proposed 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 proposed rule would not result in such an 
expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this 
preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, 
Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not 
create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we 
did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Commandant Instruction 
M16475.lD which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and 
have made a preliminary determination that this action is not likely to 
have a significant effect on the human environment. A preliminary 
``Environmental Analysis Check List'' supporting this preliminary 
determination is available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.

List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165

    Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, and Waterways.

    For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard proposes 
to amend 33 CFR Part 165 as follows:

PART 165--REGULATED NAVIGATION AREAS AND LIMITED ACCESS AREAS

U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05-1, 6.04-1, 6.04-6, and 160.5; Public 
Law 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; Department of Homeland Security 
Delegation No. 0170.1

    2. Add new Sec.  165.T11-015 to read as follows:


Sec.  165.T11-015  Safety Zone; Red Bull Air Race, San Diego Bay, San 
Diego, CA

    (a) Location. The limits of this temporary safety zone would

32[deg]42'26.40'' N, 117[deg]10'55.69'' W; 32[deg]41'57.22'' N, 
117[deg]9'33.05'' W; and 32[deg]41'45.04'' N, 117[deg]9'54.28'' W.
    (b) Effective Period. This section would be effective from 8 a.m. 
through 7 p.m. from April 29th, 2008 through May 5th, 2008. If the need 
for the safety zone ends before the scheduled termination time, the 
Captain of the Port will cease enforcement of this safety zone.
    (c) Regulations. In accordance with the general regulations in 
Sec.  165.23 of this part, entry into, transit through, or anchoring 
within this zone by all vessels would be prohibited, unless authorized 
by the Captain of the Port or his designated representative. Mariners 
requesting permission to transit through the safety zone may request 
authorization to do so from the Patrol Commander (PATCOM). The Patrol 
Commander may be contacted on VHF-FM Channel 16.
    Enforcement. All persons and vessels shall comply with the 
instructions of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the designated 
on-scene patrol personnel. Patrol personnel can be comprised of 
commissioned, warrant, and petty officers of the Coast Guard onboard 
Coast Guard, Coast Guard Auxiliary, local, state, and federal law 
enforcement vessels. Upon being hailed by the U.S. Coast Guard patrol 
personnel by siren, radio, flashing light, or other means, the operator 
of a vessel shall proceed as directed. The Coast Guard may be assisted 
by other federal, state, or local agencies.

    Dated: March 5, 2008.
D.L. LeBlanc,
Commander, U.S. Coast Guard, Acting Captain of the Port, San Diego.
