But you may submit a request for one to the Docket Management Facility at the address under ADDRESSES explaining why one would be beneficial. If we determine that one would aid this rulemaking, we will hold one at a time and place announced by a later notice in the Federal Register. Background and Purpose On June 9, 2008, June 10, 2008 and June 11, 2008 the town of Ocean City, MD, will sponsor an air show that is to be held on the Atlantic Ocean between 7th Street and 25th Street in Ocean City, MD. Due to the need to protect mariners and the public from the hazards associated with the air show, a safety zone bound by the following coordinates will be enforced: 38°¥20′¥59.6″ N/075°¥03′¥44.4″ W, 38°¥21′¥10″ N/075°¥04′¥19.9″ W, 38°¥20′¥03.8″ N/075°¥04′¥10.6″ W, 38°¥20′¥14.1″ N/075°¥04′¥45.6″ W (NAD 1983). Access to this area will be temporarily restricted for public safety. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard proposes to establish a safety zone on the Atlantic Ocean between 7th Street and 25th Street in Ocean City, MD. This safety zone bound, by coordinates 38°¥20′¥59.6″ N/075°¥03′¥44.4″ W, 38°¥21′¥10″ N/ 075°¥04′¥19.9″ W, 38°¥20′¥03.8″ N/ 075°¥04′¥10.6″ W, 38°¥20′¥14.1″ N/ 075°¥04′¥45.6″ W (NAD 1983), will be established during the Ocean City Air Show and be enforced from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 9, 2008, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 10, 2008 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 11, 2008. In the interest of public safety, access to the safety zone will be restricted during the specified date and times. Except for participants and vessels authorized by the Captain of the Port or his Representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the safety zone. Regulatory Evaluation We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and E:\FR\FM\21APP1.SGM 21APP1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 77 / Monday, April 21, 2008 / Proposed Rules executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analysis based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. Executive Order 12866 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. Although this regulation restricts access to the regulated area, 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. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS 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 because the zone will only be in place for a limited duration and maritime advisories will be issued allowing the mariners to adjust their plans accordingly. However, this rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in that portion of the Atlantic Ocean from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 9, 2008, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 10, 2008 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 11, 2008. 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Apr 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 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 proposed rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact Lieutenant Junior Grade TaQuitia Winn, Assistant Chief, Waterways Management Division, Sector Hampton Roads at (757) 668–5580. 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, PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 21295 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. We invite your comments on how this proposed rule might impact tribal governments, even if that impact may not constitute a ‘‘tribal implication’’ under the Order. 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 E:\FR\FM\21APP1.SGM 21APP1 21296 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 77 / Monday, April 21, 2008 / Proposed Rules 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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule.

Background and Purpose

    On June 9, 2008, June 10, 2008 and June 11, 2008 the town of Ocean 
City, MD, will sponsor an air show that is to be held on the Atlantic 
Ocean between 7th Street and 25th Street in Ocean City, MD. Due to the 
need to protect mariners and the public from the hazards associated 
with the air show, a safety zone bound by the following coordinates 
will be enforced: 38[deg]-20[min]-59.6[sec] N/075[deg]-03[min]-
44.4[sec] W, 38[deg]-21[min]-10[sec] N/075[deg]-04[min]-19.9[sec] W, 
38[deg]-20[min]-03.8[sec] N/075[deg]-04[min]-10.6[sec] W, 38[deg]-
20[min]-14.1[sec] N/075[deg]-04[min]-45.6[sec] W (NAD 1983). Access to 
this area will be temporarily restricted for public safety.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard proposes to establish a safety zone on the Atlantic 
Ocean between 7th Street and 25th Street in Ocean City, MD. This safety 
zone bound, by coordinates 38[deg]-20[min]-59.6[sec] N/075[deg]-
03[min]-44.4[sec] W, 38[deg]-21[min]-10[sec] N/075[deg]-04[min]-
19.9[sec] W, 38[deg]-20[min]-03.8[sec] N/075[deg]-04[min]-10.6[sec] W, 
38[deg]-20[min]-14.1[sec] N/075[deg]-04[min]-45.6[sec] W (NAD 1983), 
will be established during the Ocean City Air Show and be enforced from 
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 9, 2008, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 10, 2008 
and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 11, 2008. In the interest of public 
safety, access to the safety zone will be restricted during the 
specified date and times. Except for participants and vessels 
authorized by the Captain of the Port or his Representative, no person 
or vessel may enter or remain in the safety zone.

Regulatory Evaluation

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and

[[Page 21295]]

executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analysis 
based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders.

Executive Order 12866

    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. Although this 
regulation restricts access to the regulated area, 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 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 because the zone will only be in place for a 
limited duration and maritime advisories will be issued allowing the 
mariners to adjust their plans accordingly. However, this rule may 
affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the 
owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in that 
portion of the Atlantic Ocean from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 9, 2008, 
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 10, 2008 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 
11, 2008.
    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 
proposed rule would affect your small business, organization, or 
governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its 
provisions or options for compliance, please contact Lieutenant Junior 
Grade TaQuitia Winn, Assistant Chief, Waterways Management Division, 
Sector Hampton Roads at (757) 668-5580. 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. We 
invite your comments on how this proposed rule might impact tribal 
governments, even if that impact may not constitute a ``tribal 
implication'' under the Order.

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

[[Page 21296]]

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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the 
discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed 
rule.
