Background and Purpose 33 CFR part 100 provides regulations to provide effective control over regattas and marine parades conducted on U.S. navigable waters to insure safety of life in the regattas or marine parade area. Section 100.801 regulates events that take place in the Eighth Coast Guard District. This section needs to be updated because the Coast Guard has reorganized Coast Guard Group Offices and Marine Safety Offices into Coast Guard Sector Commands and the events listed in Table 1 of § 100.801 need to be revised to reflect current events. The Coast Guard also proposes to modify Coast Guard patrol requirements for Eighth Coast Guard regattas and marine parades. Section 100.801(a) requires the Coast Guard to patrol marine events in the Eighth Coast Guard District. The Coast Guard feels that not all events require Coast Guard patrols and therefore proposes to leave this at the discretion of the local Coast Guard Captain of the Port. Discussion of Proposed Rule This proposed rule would update § 100.801 Table 1 and list regattas and marine parades in the Eighth Coast Guard District by Coast Guard Sector Commands vice Coast Guard Groups Offices. It would also change § 100.801(a) to allow the local Coast Guard Captain of the Port to establish Coast Guard patrol requirements. E:\FR\FM\16JNP1.SGM 16JNP1 33962 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 116 / Monday, June 16, 2008 / Proposed Rules 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 proposed regattas and marine parades listed in this rule will restrict vessel traffic from transiting certain areas of Eighth Coast Guard District waters; however the effect of this regulation will not be significant because these events are short duration and the special local regulation governing vessel movements and restrictions are also short duration. Additionally, the public is given advance notification through the Federal Register and thus will be able to plan operations around the event in advance. jlentini on PROD1PC65 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. This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the regulated area during the regattas or marine parade. The special local regulations would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This rule would be in effect for short periods of times and vessel traffic could pass safely around the regulated area or through the regulated area with permission of the patrol commander. And before the effective period, the Coast Guard Captain of the Port would issue maritime advisories widely available to users of the river. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:04 Jun 13, 2008 Jkt 214001 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 CDR John Arenstam, Eighth Coast Guard District (dpw), 500 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 70003, (504) 671–2109, e-mail John.J.Arenstam@uscg.mil. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 E:\FR\FM\16JNP1.SGM 16JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 116 / Monday, June 16, 2008 / Proposed Rules 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 guide 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. This rule carries out maritime safety and is not likely to have any significant effects on public health and the environment. We have also concluded that there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the instruction, from further environmental documentation because this rule is not expected to result in any significant environmental impact as described in NEPA. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction, an ‘‘Environmental Analysis Check List’’ and a ‘‘Categorical Exclusion Determination’’ are not required for this rule. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact form this proposed rule.

ACTION: Notice of 90-day petition finding and initiation of status review. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce our 90-day finding on a petition to reclassify the Argentine population of the broadsnouted caiman (Caiman latirostris) from endangered to threatened under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). We find that the petition presents substantial scientific and commercial information indicating that the petitioned action of reclassifying the broad-snouted caiman in Argentina from endangered to threatened status under the Act may be warranted. Therefore, we are initiating a status review of the broad-snouted caiman to determine if reclassification of the population in Argentina, as petitioned, is warranted under the Act. To ensure that the status review is comprehensive, we are requesting submission of any new information on the broad-snouted caiman since its original listing as an endangered species in 1976. At the conclusion of our status review, we will make the requisite recommendation under section 4(c)(2)(B) of the Act and issue a 12-month finding on the petition, as provided in section 4(b)(3)(B) of the Act. DATES: To be considered in the 12month finding on this petition, we will accept comments and information from all interested parties until September 15, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Information Solicited We intend that any final action resulting from this status review will be as accurate and effective as possible based on the best available scientific and commercial information. Therefore, we solicit information, comments, or suggestions on the broad-snouted caiman from the public, concerned government agencies, the scientific community, industry, or any other interested party. We are opening a 90day public comment period to allow all interested parties an opportunity to provide information on the status of the Argentine population of the broadsnouted caiman, as well as the status of the species throughout its range, including: (1) Information on taxonomy, distribution, habitat selection and use, food habits, population density and trends, habitat trends, and effects of management on broad-snouted caimans in the wild; (2) Information on broad-snouted caiman ranching programs in Argentina and throughout the caiman’s range; including efficacy of programs, origin of parental stock, stock supplementation for any purpose, including genetic purposes, growth rates, birth and mortality rates in captivity, location of ranches in comparison to wild populations, effects of ranching on the species’ natural habitats and wild populations, wastewater management, and any other factors occurring from ranching activities that might negatively affect or reduce the species’ natural habitat or range; (3) Information on the adequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms, trends in domestic and international trade, illicit hunting of wild broad-snouted caimans, illegal trade and enforcement efforts and current and/or future solutions to poaching and illegal trade, products resulting from caiman E:\FR\FM\16JNP1.SGM 16JNP1

Background and Purpose

    33 CFR part 100 provides regulations to provide effective control 
over regattas and marine parades conducted on U.S. navigable waters to 
insure safety of life in the regattas or marine parade area. Section 
100.801 regulates events that take place in the Eighth Coast Guard 
District. This section needs to be updated because the Coast Guard has 
reorganized Coast Guard Group Offices and Marine Safety Offices into 
Coast Guard Sector Commands and the events listed in Table 1 of Sec.  
100.801 need to be revised to reflect current events.
    The Coast Guard also proposes to modify Coast Guard patrol 
requirements for Eighth Coast Guard regattas and marine parades. 
Section 100.801(a) requires the Coast Guard to patrol marine events in 
the Eighth Coast Guard District. The Coast Guard feels that not all 
events require Coast Guard patrols and therefore proposes to leave this 
at the discretion of the local Coast Guard Captain of the Port.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    This proposed rule would update Sec.  100.801 Table 1 and list 
regattas and marine parades in the Eighth Coast Guard District by Coast 
Guard Sector Commands vice Coast Guard Groups Offices. It would also 
change Sec.  100.801(a) to allow the local Coast Guard Captain of the 
Port to establish Coast Guard patrol requirements.

[[Page 33962]]

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 proposed regattas and marine parades listed in this rule will 
restrict vessel traffic from transiting certain areas of Eighth Coast 
Guard District waters; however the effect of this regulation will not 
be significant because these events are short duration and the special 
local regulation governing vessel movements and restrictions are also 
short duration. Additionally, the public is given advance notification 
through the Federal Register and thus will be able to plan operations 
around the event in advance.

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 or 
operators of vessels intending to transit the regulated area during the 
regattas or marine parade.
    The special local regulations would not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following 
reasons. This rule would be in effect for short periods of times and 
vessel traffic could pass safely around the regulated area or through 
the regulated area with permission of the patrol commander. And before 
the effective period, the Coast Guard Captain of the Port would issue 
maritime advisories widely available to users of the river.
    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 CDR John Arenstam, Eighth Coast 
Guard District (dpw), 500 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 70003, (504) 
671-2109, e-mail John.J.Arenstam@uscg.mil. 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

[[Page 33963]]

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 guide 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. This rule carries out 
maritime safety and is not likely to have any significant effects on 
public health and the environment. We have also concluded that there 
are no factors in this case that would limit the use of categorical 
exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule 
is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h), of the 
instruction, from further environmental documentation because this rule 
is not expected to result in any significant environmental impact as 
described in NEPA.
    Under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction, an 
``Environmental Analysis Check List'' and a ``Categorical Exclusion 
Determination'' are not required for this rule. We seek any comments or 
information that may lead to the discovery of a significant 
environmental impact form this proposed rule.

List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 100

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

    For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard proposes 
to amend 33 CFR part 100 as follows:

PART 100--REGATTAS AND MARINE PARADES

    1. The authority citation for part 100 continues to read as 
follows:

    Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1233.

    2. Amend Sec.  100.801 by revising paragraph (a) and table 1 to 
read as follows:


Sec.  100.801  Annual Marine Events in the Eighth Coast Guard District.

* * * * *
    (a) The Coast Guard may patrol the event area under the direction 
of a designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The Patrol Commander may 
be contacted on Channel 16 VHF-FM (156.8 MHz) by the call sign 
``PATCOM.''
