Regulatory History On May 22, 2006, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the United States Coast Guard (Coast Guard) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) published a joint notice of proposed rulemaking entitled ‘‘Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Implementation in the Maritime Sector; Hazardous Materials Endorsement for a Commercial Driver’s License’’ in the Federal Register (71 FR 29396). This was followed by a 45-day comment period and four public meetings. The Coast Guard and TSA issued a joint final rule, under the same title, on January 25, 2007 (72 FR 3492) (hereinafter referred to as the original TWIC final rule). The preamble to that final rule contains a discussion of all the comments received on the NPRM, as well as a discussion of the provisions found in the original TWIC final rule, which became effective on March 26, 2007. On May 7, 2008, the Coast Guard and TSA issued a final rule to realign the compliance date for implementation of the Transportation Worker Identification Credential. 73 FR 25562. The date by which mariners need to obtain a TWIC, and by which owners and operators of vessels, facilities, and outer continental shelf facilities, who have not otherwise been required to implement access control procedures utilizing TWIC, must implement those procedures, is now April 15, 2009 instead of September 25, 2008. Owners and operators of facilities that must comply with 33 CFR part 105 will still be subject to earlier, rolling compliance dates, as laid out in 33 CFR 105.115(e). The Coast Guard will continue to announce rolling compliance dates, as laid out in 33 CFR 105.115(e), at least 90 days in advance via notices published in the Federal Register.

We strongly encourage persons requiring unescorted access to facilities regulated by 33 CFR part 105 and located in one of these COTP Zones to enroll for their TWIC as soon as possible, if they haven’t already.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Regulatory Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when an agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because the permit application was not received in time to publish a NPRM followed by a final rule before the effective date. 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. Delaying this rule would be contrary to the public interest of ensuring the safety of spectators and vessels during this event and immediate action is necessary to prevent possible loss of life or property. Background and Purpose This temporary safety zone is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and spectators from hazards associated with a fireworks display. Based on E:\FR\FM\16JYR1.SGM 16JYR1

I. Regulatory History

    On May 22, 2006, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through 
the United States Coast Guard (Coast Guard) and the Transportation 
Security Administration (TSA) published a joint notice of proposed 
rulemaking entitled ``Transportation Worker Identification Credential 
(TWIC) Implementation in the Maritime Sector; Hazardous Materials 
Endorsement for a Commercial Driver's License'' in the Federal Register 
(71 FR 29396). This was followed by a 45-day comment period and four 
public meetings. The Coast Guard and TSA issued a joint final rule, 
under the same title, on January 25, 2007 (72 FR 3492) (hereinafter 
referred to as the original TWIC final rule). The preamble to that 
final rule contains a discussion of all the comments received on the 
NPRM, as well as a discussion of the provisions found in the original 
TWIC final rule, which became effective on March 26, 2007.
    On May 7, 2008, the Coast Guard and TSA issued a final rule to 
realign the compliance date for implementation of the Transportation 
Worker Identification Credential. 73 FR 25562. The date by which 
mariners need to obtain a TWIC, and by which owners and operators of 
vessels, facilities, and outer continental shelf facilities, who have 
not otherwise been required to implement access control procedures 
utilizing TWIC, must implement those procedures, is now April 15, 2009 
instead of September 25, 2008. Owners and operators of facilities that 
must comply with 33 CFR part 105 will still be subject to earlier, 
rolling compliance dates, as laid out in 33 CFR 105.115(e).
    The Coast Guard will continue to announce rolling compliance dates, 
as laid out in 33 CFR 105.115(e), at least 90 days in advance via 
notices published in the Federal Register. The final compliance date 
for all COTP Zones will not be later than April 15, 2009.

II. Notice of Facility Compliance Date--COTP Zones Cape Fear River, 
Corpus Christi, North Carolina, and Port Arthur

    Title 33 CFR 105.115(e) currently states that ``[f]acility owners 
and operators must be operating in accordance with the TWIC provisions 
in this part by the date set by the Coast Guard in a Notice to be 
published in the Federal Register.'' Through this Notice, the Coast 
Guard informs the owners and operators of facilities subject to 33 CFR 
105.115(e) located within COTP Zones Cape Fear River, Corpus Christi, 
North Carolina, and Port Arthur that the deadline for their compliance 
with Coast Guard and TSA TWIC requirements is November 28, 2008.
    The TSA and Coast Guard have determined that this date provides 
sufficient time for the estimated population required to obtain TWICs 
for these COTP Zones to enroll and for TSA to complete the necessary 
security threat assessments for those enrollment applications. We 
strongly encourage persons requiring unescorted access to facilities 
regulated by 33 CFR part 105 and located in one of these COTP Zones to 
enroll for their TWIC as soon as possible, if they haven't already.
