Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 77 / Monday, April 21, 2008 / Rules and Regulations At the request of the U.S. Department of Energy, the FAA is changing the designated using agency for R–2204 in Alaska. The U.S. Department of Energy is assuming primary responsibility for operations as using agency from their contractor, Sandia Labs. In addition to the action above, the U.S. Department of Energy has assessed their planned operations within Restricted Area R–2204 and determined that many of the operations will be conducted at an altitude below 1,500 feet (ft.) above Mean Sea Level (MSL), and, therefore higher altitudes are not needed for these activities. The primary benefit of this action is to make lower altitudes available on Federal Airway V–438 between the Deadhorse Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR) and the Barrow VOR during most periods when Restricted Area R–2204 is active. instrument flight rules (IFR) altitudes on V–438 to be available during periods when R–2204 Low is needed to contain activity conducted at altitudes below 1,500 ft. MSL. Accordingly, since this action permits greater access to airspace by both VFR and IFR aircraft during periods of activation of R–2204, High and Low, public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 533(b) are unnecessary. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends restricted areas in Alaska. The Rule Environmental Review This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 by changing the R–2204 using agency currently shown as, ‘‘Department of Energy, Sandia National Labs/National Nuclear Security Administration, Albuquerque, NM’’ to ‘‘Department of Energy, Office of Science, Washington, DC.’’ This action also subdivides R–2204 into R–2204 Low from the surface of the earth up to, but not including 1,500 ft. MSL and R–2204 High from 1,500 ft. MSL up to, but not including, 7,000 ft. MSL. This will make airspace available for flight under visual flight rules (VFR) and will permit The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with 311d., FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures.’’ This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment. Science, Washington, DC.’’ The FAA is taking this action in response to a request from the United States (U.S.) Department of Energy to reflect an administrative change of responsibility for the restricted area. This action also revises R–2204, by subdividing the area to create R–2204 High and R–2204 Low. The overall dimensions of R–2204 will remain the same; however, establishing of R–2204 High and R–2204 Low will enable the Department of Energy to activate only that portion of the airspace that is actually needed to contain their operations.

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. Any delay encountered in this regulation’s effective date by publishing a NPRM would be contrary to public interest since immediate action is needed to prevent vessel traffic from transiting the specified waters to provide for the safety of life and property on navigable waters. Additionally, this temporary safety zone will only be enforced for 1 hour on May 2, 2008 and should have minimal impact on vessel transits due to the fact that vessels can safely transit through the zone when authorized by the Captain of the Port or his Representative and that they are not precluded from using any portion of the waterway except the safety zone area itself. For the same reasons above, 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 On May 2, 2008, Kingsmill Resort Destination Services of Williamsburg, VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Apr 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 VA will sponsor a fireworks display on the shoreline at position 37°13′23″ N/ 76°40′12″ W (NAD 1983). Due to the need to protect mariners and spectators from the hazards associated with the fireworks display, vessel traffic will be temporarily restricted within a 350 foot radius of the fireworks launching site. Discussion of Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone on specified waters of the James River within the area bounded by a 350 foot radius circle centered on position 37°13′23″ N/76°40′12″ W (NAD 1983) in the vicinity of Kingsmill Resort, Williamsburg, VA. This safety zone will be established in the interest of public safety during the Kingsmill Resort Fireworks event and will be enforced from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. on May 2, 2008. General navigation within the safety zone will be restricted during the specified date and times. Except for participants and vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or his representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. 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. Although this regulation restricts access to the safety zone, the effect of this rule will not be significant because: (i) The safety zone will be in effect for a limited duration; and (ii) the Coast Guard will make notifications via maritime advisories so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. 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 will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 a portion of the James River from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. on May 2, 2008. The safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because the zone will only be in place for one hour in the evening when vessel traffic is low. Vessel traffic can pass safely around the zone. Before the effective period, we will issue maritime advisories widely available to users of the river. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we offer to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. 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 E:\FR\FM\21APR1.SGM 21APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 77 / Monday, April 21, 2008 / Rules and Regulations 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 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. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with RULES 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Apr 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 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 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 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 because it 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.

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. Any delay encountered in this 
regulation's effective date by publishing a NPRM would be contrary to 
public interest since immediate action is needed to prevent vessel 
traffic from transiting the specified waters to provide for the safety 
of life and property on navigable waters. Additionally, this temporary 
safety zone will only be enforced for 1 hour on May 2, 2008 and should 
have minimal impact on vessel transits due to the fact that vessels can 
safely transit through the zone when authorized by the Captain of the 
Port or his Representative and that they are not precluded from using 
any portion of the waterway except the safety zone area itself. For the 
same reasons above, 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

    On May 2, 2008, Kingsmill Resort Destination Services of 
Williamsburg, VA will sponsor a fireworks display on the shoreline at 
position 37[deg]13'23'' N/76[deg]40'12'' W (NAD 1983). Due to the need 
to protect mariners and spectators from the hazards associated with the 
fireworks display, vessel traffic will be temporarily restricted within 
a 350 foot radius of the fireworks launching site.

Discussion of Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone on specified waters 
of the James River within the area bounded by a 350 foot radius circle 
centered on position 37[deg]13'23'' N/76[deg]40'12'' W (NAD 1983) in 
the vicinity of Kingsmill Resort, Williamsburg, VA. This safety zone 
will be established in the interest of public safety during the 
Kingsmill Resort Fireworks event and will be enforced from 9 p.m. to 10 
p.m. on May 2, 2008. General navigation within the safety zone will be 
restricted during the specified date and times. Except for participants 
and vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or his 
representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the 
regulated area.

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. Although this regulation restricts access 
to the safety zone, the effect of this rule will not be significant 
because: (i) The safety zone will be in effect for a limited duration; 
and (ii) the Coast Guard will make notifications via maritime 
advisories so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly.

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 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 James River from 9 p.m. to 10 
p.m. on May 2, 2008.
    The safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities because the zone will only be in 
place for one hour in the evening when vessel traffic is low. Vessel 
traffic can pass safely around the zone. Before the effective period, 
we will issue maritime advisories widely available to users of the 
river.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we offer to assist small 
entities in understanding the rule so that they can better evaluate its 
effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process.
    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

[[Page 21249]]

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 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 
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 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 because it 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.
