Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act This proposed rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96–354) which requires the preparation of a regulatory flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (i.e., small businesses and small governments). Unless information is obtained to the contrary during the public notice comment period, the Corps expects that this restricted area would have practically no economic impact on the public, and no anticipated navigational hazard or interference with existing waterway traffic. This proposed rule, if adopted, will have no significant economic impact on small entities. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Apr 18, 2008 Jkt 214001 c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act Due to the administrative nature of this action and because the intended change will only impact waters a distance of 100 feet from Marinette Marine Corporation’s pier (an area of approximately 2.81 acres), the Corps expects that this regulation, if adopted, will not have a significant impact to the quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement will not be required. An environmental assessment will be prepared after the public notice period is closed and all comments have been received and considered. It may be reviewed at the District office listed at the end of the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. d. Unfunded Mandates Act This proposed rule does not impose an enforceable duty among the private sector and, therefore, it is not a Federal private section mandate and it is not subject to the requirements of either Section 202 or Section 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Act. We have also found under Section 203 of the Act, that small governments will not be significantly and uniquely affected by this rulemaking.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of 
the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat. 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and 
Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat. 892; 33 
U.S.C. 3), the Corps proposes to amend the restricted area regulations 
at 33 CFR part 334 by adding Sec.  334.815 to establish a restricted 
area in the Menominee River, at the Marinette Marine Corporation 
Shipyard, Marinette, Wisconsin, to provide adequate protection for the 
Littoral Combat Ship (LCS Freedom 1) during its construction. By 
correspondence dated July 27, 2006, Marinette Marine Corporation, on 
behalf of the Department of the Navy, requested that the Corps of 
Engineers establish this restricted area.

Procedural Requirements

a. Review Under Executive Order 12866

    This proposed rule is issued with respect to a military function of 
the Department of Defense and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 
do not apply.

b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This proposed rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96-354) which requires the preparation of a 
regulatory flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
(i.e., small businesses and small governments). Unless information is 
obtained to the contrary during the public notice comment period, the 
Corps expects that this restricted area would have practically no 
economic impact on the public, and no anticipated navigational hazard 
or interference with existing waterway traffic. This proposed rule, if 
adopted, will have no significant economic impact on small entities.

c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act

    Due to the administrative nature of this action and because the 
intended change will only impact waters a distance of 100 feet from 
Marinette Marine Corporation's pier (an area of approximately 2.81 
acres), the Corps expects that this regulation, if adopted, will not 
have a significant impact to the quality of the human environment and, 
therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement will not be 
required. An environmental assessment will be prepared after the public 
notice period is closed and all comments have been received and 
considered. It may be reviewed at the District office listed at the end 
of the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above.

d. Unfunded Mandates Act

    This proposed rule does not impose an enforceable duty among the 
private sector and, therefore, it is not a Federal private section 
mandate and it is not subject to the requirements of either Section 202 
or Section 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Act. We have also found under 
Section 203 of the Act, that small governments will not be 
significantly and uniquely affected by this rulemaking.
