Safety Zones: Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone, 29725-29731 [E8-11408]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 100 / Thursday, May 22, 2008 / Proposed Rules 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. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS 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 Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated this 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:55 May 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 29725 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. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Environment ACTION: 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 because it simply promulgates the operating regulations or procedures for drawbridges. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule. SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes establishment of safety zones for annual events in the Captain of the Port Detroit zone. This proposed rule consolidates current regulations establishing safety zones for annual fireworks events in the former Captain of the Port Toledo Zone and the former Captain of the Port Detroit Zone. In addition, it adds events not previously published in Coast Guard regulations. These safety zones are necessary to protect spectators, participants, and vessels from the hazards associated with fireworks displays or other events. DATES: Comments and related materials must reach the Coast Guard on or before June 23, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Meeting We do not now plan to hold a public meeting. But you may submit a request for a meeting by writing to Commander, Coast Guard Sector Detroit 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 In 2005, the Coast Guard consolidated the Captain of the Port Toledo zone and the Captain of the Port Detroit zone into one zone re-defining the Captain of the Port Detroit zone. This proposed rule will consolidate the regulations found in 33 CFR 165.907, Safety Zones; Annual Fireworks Events in the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone with additional events not previously published in the CFR. These safety zones are necessary to protect vessels and people from the hazards associated with fireworks displays or other events. Such hazards include obstructions to the waterway that may cause marine casualties and the explosive danger of fireworks and debris falling into the water that may cause death or serious bodily harm. Discussion of Proposed Rule The proposed rule and associated safety zones are necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and people during annual firework events in the Captain of the Port Detroit area of responsibility that may pose a hazard to the public. This new section unites all the annual Firework events in the recently consolidated COTP Detroit zone into one section of the CFR. In addition, there are several events that are added and some events that have been deleted in this new section. This proposed rule would add the following events to those already occurring annually: (1) Roostertail Fireworks (land); (2) Roostertail Fireworks (barge); (3) Celebrate America Fireworks; (4) Target Fireworks; (5) Washington Township Summerfest Fireworks; (6) Au Gres City Fireworks; (7) The Old Club Fireworks; (8) Alpena Fireworks; (9) Put-In-Bay Fourth of July PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Fireworks; (10) Gatzeros Fireworks; (11) Harrisville Fireworks; (12) Harbor Beach Fireworks; (13) Trenton Rotary Roar on the River Fireworks; (14) Nautical Mile Venetian Festival Fireworks; (15) Cheeseburger Festival Fireworks; (16) Detroit International Jazz Festival Fireworks; (17) Marine City Maritime Festival Fireworks; (18) Schoenith Family Foundation Fireworks; (19) Toledo Country Club Memorial Celebration and Fireworks; (20) Luna Pier Fireworks Show; (21) Toledo Country Club 4th of July Fireworks; (22) Pharm Lights Up The Night Fireworks; (23) Perrysburg/Maumee 4th of July Fireworks; (24) Lakeside July 4th Fireworks; (25) Catawba Island Club Fireworks; (26) Red, White and Blues Bang Fireworks; (27) Huron Riverfest Fireworks; (28) Kellys Island, Island Fest Fireworks; (29) Riverfest at the International Docks; (30) Rossford Labor Day Fireworks; (31) Lakeside Labor Day Fireworks; and (32) Catawba Island Club Fireworks. The following events in the proposed rule already exist in the current regulation and are only being reorganized in this proposed rule: (33) Bay-Rama Fishfly Festival Fireworks; (34) Jefferson Beach Marina Fireworks; (35) Sigma Gamma Association Fireworks; (36) Lake Erie Metropark Fireworks; (37) City of St. Clair Fireworks; (38) Oscoda Township Fireworks; (39) Port Austin Fireworks; (40) City of Wyandotte Fireworks; (41) Grosse Point Farms Fireworks; (42) Caseville Fireworks; (43) Algonac Pickerel Tournament Fireworks; (44) Port Sanilac Fireworks; (45) St. Clair Shores Fireworks; (46) Port Huron 4th of July Fireworks; (47) Grosse Point Yacht Club 4th of July Fireworks; (48) Lexington Independence Festival Fireworks; (49) City of Ecorse Water Festival Fireworks; (50) Grosse Isle Yacht Club Fireworks; (51) Trenton Fireworks; (52) Belle Maer Harbor 4th of July Fireworks; (53) Tawas City 4th of July Fireworks; and (54) Venetian Festival Boat Parade and Fireworks. The proposed safety zones will be enforced only immediately before, during, and after events that pose hazard to the public, and only upon notice by the Captain of the Port. The Captain of the Port Detroit will notify the public that the zones in this proposal are or will be enforced by all appropriate means to the affected segments of the public including publication in the Federal Register as practicable, in accordance with 33 CFR 165.7(a). Such means of notification may also include, but are not limited to Broadcast Notice to Mariners or Local Notice to Mariners. The Captain of the E:\FR\FM\22MYP1.SGM 22MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 100 / Thursday, May 22, 2008 / Proposed Rules Port will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the public when enforcement of the safety zone established by this section is cancelled. All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the designated representative. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Detroit, or his designated representative. The Captain of the Port or his designated representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS 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 Coast Guard’s use of these safety zones will be periodic, of short duration, and designed to minimize the impact on navigable waters. These safety zones will only be enforced immediately before, during, and after the time the events occur. Furthermore, these safety zones have been designed to allow vessels to transit unrestricted to portions of the waterways not affected by the safety zones. The Coast Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the activation of these safety zones. 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. This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners of operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the areas designated as safety zones in subparagraphs (1) VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 May 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 through (49) during the dates and times the safety zones are being enforced. These safety zones would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: This proposed rule would be in effect for short periods of time, and only once per year, per zone. The safety zones have been designed to allow traffic to pass safely around the zone whenever possible and vessels will be allowed to pass through the zones with the permission of the Captain of the Port. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed 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 proposed 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 LT Jeff Ahlgren, Waterways Management, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Detroit, 110 Mount Elliot Ave., Detroit, MI 48207; (313) 568–9580. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. Collection of Information This proposed 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 29727 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 will not result in such expenditure, we nevertheless discuss its effects elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule will not effect the 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 proposed 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 The Coast Guard recognizes the treaty rights of Native American Tribes. Moreover, the Coast Guard is committed to working with Tribal Governments to implement local policies and to mitigate tribal concerns. We have determined that these safety zones and fishing rights protection need not be incompatible. We have also determined that this proposed 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. Nevertheless, Indian Tribes that have questions concerning the provisions of this proposed rule or options for compliance are encouraged to contact the point of contact listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. E:\FR\FM\22MYP1.SGM 22MYP1 29728 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 100 / Thursday, May 22, 2008 / Proposed Rules 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. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS 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 checklist 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.

Safety Zones: Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in the Captain 
of the Port Detroit Zone

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

events not previously published in Coast Guard regulations. These 
safety zones are necessary to protect spectators, participants, and 
vessels from the hazards associated with fireworks displays or other 
events.

DATES: Comments and related materials must reach the Coast Guard on or 
before June 23, 2008.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by Coast Guard docket

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Public Meeting

    We do not now plan to hold a public meeting. But you may submit a 
request for a meeting by writing to Commander, Coast Guard Sector 
Detroit at the address under ADDRESSES explaining why one would be 
beneficial. If we determine that one would aid this rulemaking, we will

Register.

Background and Purpose

    In 2005, the Coast Guard consolidated the Captain of the Port 
Toledo zone and the Captain of the Port Detroit zone into one zone re-
defining the Captain of the Port Detroit zone. This proposed rule will 
consolidate the regulations found in 33 CFR 165.907, Safety Zones; 
Annual Fireworks Events in the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone with 
additional events not previously published in the CFR.
    These safety zones are necessary to protect vessels and people from 
the hazards associated with fireworks displays or other events. Such 
hazards include obstructions to the waterway that may cause marine 
casualties and the explosive danger of fireworks and debris falling 
into the water that may cause death or serious bodily harm.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The proposed rule and associated safety zones are necessary to 
ensure the safety of vessels and people during annual firework events 
in the Captain of the Port Detroit area of responsibility that may pose 
a hazard to the public. This new section unites all the annual Firework 
events in the recently consolidated COTP Detroit zone into one section 
of the CFR. In addition, there are several events that are added and 
some events that have been deleted in this new section.
    This proposed rule would add the following events to those already 
occurring annually: (1) Roostertail Fireworks (land); (2) Roostertail 
Fireworks (barge); (3) Celebrate America Fireworks; (4) Target 
Fireworks; (5) Washington Township Summerfest Fireworks; (6) Au Gres 
City Fireworks; (7) The Old Club Fireworks; (8) Alpena Fireworks; (9) 
Put-In-Bay Fourth of July Fireworks; (10) Gatzeros Fireworks; (11)

International Jazz Festival Fireworks; (17) Marine City Maritime

Toledo Country Club Memorial Celebration and Fireworks; (20) Luna Pier 
Fireworks Show; (21) Toledo Country Club 4th of July Fireworks; (22) 
Pharm Lights Up The Night Fireworks; (23) Perrysburg/Maumee 4th of July 
Fireworks; (24) Lakeside July 4th Fireworks; (25) Catawba Island Club 
Fireworks; (26) Red, White and Blues Bang Fireworks; (27) Huron 
Riverfest Fireworks; (28) Kellys Island, Island Fest Fireworks; (29) 
Riverfest at the International Docks; (30) Rossford Labor Day 
Fireworks; (31) Lakeside Labor Day Fireworks; and (32) Catawba Island 
Club Fireworks.
    The following events in the proposed rule already exist in the 
current regulation and are only being reorganized in this proposed 
rule: (33) Bay-Rama Fishfly Festival Fireworks; (34) Jefferson Beach 
Marina Fireworks; (35) Sigma Gamma Association Fireworks; (36) Lake 
Erie Metropark Fireworks; (37) City of St. Clair Fireworks; (38) Oscoda 
Township Fireworks; (39) Port Austin Fireworks; (40) City of Wyandotte 
Fireworks; (41) Grosse Point Farms Fireworks; (42) Caseville Fireworks; 
(43) Algonac Pickerel Tournament Fireworks; (44) Port Sanilac 
Fireworks; (45) St. Clair Shores Fireworks; (46) Port Huron 4th of July 
Fireworks; (47) Grosse Point Yacht Club 4th of July Fireworks; (48) 
Lexington Independence Festival Fireworks; (49) City of Ecorse Water 
Festival Fireworks; (50) Grosse Isle Yacht Club Fireworks; (51) Trenton 
Fireworks; (52) Belle Maer Harbor 4th of July Fireworks; (53) Tawas 
City 4th of July Fireworks; and (54) Venetian Festival Boat Parade and 
Fireworks.
    The proposed safety zones will be enforced only immediately before, 
during, and after events that pose hazard to the public, and only upon 
notice by the Captain of the Port.
    The Captain of the Port Detroit will notify the public that the 
zones in this proposal are or will be enforced by all appropriate means 
to the affected segments of the public including publication in the 
Federal Register as practicable, in accordance with 33 CFR 165.7(a). 
Such means of notification may also include, but are not limited to 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners or Local Notice to Mariners. The Captain 
of the

[[Page 29727]]

Port will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the public 
when enforcement of the safety zone established by this section is 
cancelled.
    All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the 
Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the designated representative. Entry 
into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited 
unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Detroit, or his designated 
representative. The Captain of the Port or his designated 
representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16.

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 Coast Guard's use of these safety zones will be periodic, of 
short duration, and designed to minimize the impact on navigable 
waters. These safety zones will only be enforced immediately before, 
during, and after the time the events occur. Furthermore, these safety 
zones have been designed to allow vessels to transit unrestricted to 
portions of the waterways not affected by the safety zones. The Coast 
Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the 
activation of these safety zones.

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.
    This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of 
which might be small entities: The owners of operators of vessels 
intending to transit or anchor in the areas designated as safety zones 
in subparagraphs (1) through (49) during the dates and times the safety 
zones are being enforced.
    These safety zones would not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: This 
proposed rule would be in effect for short periods of time, and only 
once per year, per zone. The safety zones have been designed to allow 
traffic to pass safely around the zone whenever possible and vessels 
will be allowed to pass through the zones with the permission of the 
Captain of the Port.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed 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 proposed 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 LT Jeff Ahlgren, 
Waterways Management, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Detroit, 110 Mount Elliot 
Ave., Detroit, MI 48207; (313) 568-9580. The Coast Guard will not 
retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this 
proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

Collection of Information

    This proposed 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 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 will not result in such 
expenditure, we nevertheless discuss its effects elsewhere in this 
preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This proposed rule will not effect the 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 proposed 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

    The Coast Guard recognizes the treaty rights of Native American 
Tribes. Moreover, the Coast Guard is committed to working with Tribal 
Governments to implement local policies and to mitigate tribal 
concerns. We have determined that these safety zones and fishing rights 
protection need not be incompatible. We have also determined that this 
proposed 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. Nevertheless, Indian 
Tribes that have questions concerning the provisions of this proposed 
rule or options for compliance are encouraged to contact the point of 
contact listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

[[Page 29728]]

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 checklist 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.
