Download as PDF 46194 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 154 / Friday, August 8, 2008 / Rules and Regulations minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. Protection of Children We have analyzed this 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 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 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. rfrederick on PRODPC74 with RULES 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 rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Aug 07, 2008 Jkt 214001 Environment We have analyzed this rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.1D and Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 5100.1, which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321– 4370f), and have concluded that there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (32) (e) of the Instruction, from further environmental documentation. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction, an environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for this rule.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing safety zones for annual PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 events in the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone. This 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: This rule is effective August 8, 2008. Comments and material received from the public, as well as documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket, are part of docket USCG–2008–0218 and are available online at http:// www.regulations.gov. This material is also available for inspection or copying at two locations: the Docket Management Facility (M–30), U.S. Department of Transportation, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays and the U.S. Coast Guard, Sector Detroit, 110 Mt Elliot Ave, Detroit, MI 48207 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. ADDRESSES: If you have questions on this rule, call CDR Joseph Snowden, Prevention, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Detroit at (313) 568– 9580. If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Renee V. Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366–9826. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information On May 22, 2008, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones: Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone in the Federal Register (73 FR 29725). We received zero letters commenting on the rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. 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 and security of the spectators and participants during this event and immediate action is necessary to prevent possible loss of life or property. E:\FR\FM\08AUR1.SGM 08AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 154 / Friday, August 8, 2008 / Rules and Regulations 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 rule consolidates 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. rfrederick on PRODPC74 with RULES Discussion of Rule These 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 rule adds 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) 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) VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Aug 07, 2008 Jkt 214001 Lakeside Labor Day Fireworks; and (32) Catawba Island Club Fireworks. The following events in the rule already exist in the current regulation and are only being reorganized in this 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 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 that the safety zones in this rule 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 Port will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the public if enforcement of a 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. Discussion of Comments and Changes We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statues and executive orders related to rulemaking. PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 46195 Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. Regulatory Planning and Review This 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. This determination is based on the minimal time that vessels will be restricted from the zone and the zone is an area where the Coast Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the zone’s activation. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this 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 rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may 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 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. The Coast Guard will give notice to the public via a Broadcast Notice to Mariners that the regulation is in effect. Additionally, the COTP will suspend enforcement of the safety zone if the event for which the zone is established ends earlier than the expected time. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement E:\FR\FM\08AUR1.SGM 08AUR1 46196 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 154 / Friday, August 8, 2008 / Rules and Regulations Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), in the NPRM we offered to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they could better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency’s responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1– 888–REG–FAIR (1–888–734–3247). 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. We did not receive any comments for this section. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). We did not receive any comments for this section. 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 rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. We did not receive any comments for this section. 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 rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. We did not receive any comments for this section. rfrederick on PRODPC74 with RULES Taking of Private Property This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Aug 07, 2008 Jkt 214001 Protected Property Rights. We did not receive any comments for this section. Civil Justice Reform This 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. We did not receive any comments for this section. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This 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. We did not receive any comments for this section. 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 regulations and fishing rights protection need not be incompatible. We have also determined that this 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 Rule or options for compliance are encourage to contact the point of contact listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Energy Effects We have analyzed this 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. PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 5100.1 and 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 concluded under the Instruction that there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2– 1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction, from further environmental documentation. This event establishes a safety zone, therefore paragraph (34)(g) of the Instruction applies. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

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: This rule is effective August 8, 2008.

ADDRESSES: Comments and material received from the public, as well as 
documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory Information

    On May 22, 2008, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled Safety Zones: Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in 
the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone in the Federal Register (73 FR 
29725). We received zero letters commenting on the rule. No public 
meeting was requested, and none was held.
    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 and security of 
the spectators and participants during this event and immediate action 
is necessary to prevent possible loss of life or property.

[[Page 46195]]

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 rule consolidates 
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 Rule

    These 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 rule adds 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) 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 rule already exist in the current 
regulation and are only being reorganized in this 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 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 that 
the safety zones in this rule 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 Port will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the 
public if enforcement of a 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.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes 
have been made to this rule.

Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statues and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders.

Regulatory Planning and Review

    This 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.
    This determination is based on the minimal time that vessels will 
be restricted from the zone and the zone is an area where the Coast 
Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the zone's 
activation.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this 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 rule will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.
    This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may 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 
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. The Coast Guard will give notice to the public via a 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners that the regulation is in effect. 
Additionally, the COTP will suspend enforcement of the safety zone if 
the event for which the zone is established ends earlier than the 
expected time.

Assistance for Small Entities

Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), in the NPRM we offered to 
assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they could 
better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking 
process.
    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 
employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal 
regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory 
Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory 
Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and 
rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to 
comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR 
(1-888-734-3247). 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. We did not receive any comments for this 
section.

Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). We did not 
receive any comments for this section.

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 rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism. We did not receive any comments for this section.

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 rule will not result in such an expenditure, we 
do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. We did 
not receive any comments for this section.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will 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. We did not receive any comments for this section.

Civil Justice Reform

    This 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. We did not receive any comments 
for this section.

Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This 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. We did not receive any comments for 
this section.

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 regulations and fishing rights 
protection need not be incompatible. We have also determined that this 
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 Rule or options 
for compliance are encourage to contact the point of contact listed 
under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this 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 rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 5100.1 and 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 concluded 
under the Instruction that there are no factors in this case that would 
limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the 
Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under 
figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction, from further 
environmental documentation. This event establishes a safety zone, 
therefore paragraph (34)(g) of the Instruction applies.
    An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.
