Background and Purpose The establishment of a new anchorage, modification of existing anchorages, and revision of the regulations governing anchorages contained in this rule are necessary to ensure sufficient anchorage opportunities in the Captain of the Port Portland, Oregon, area of responsibility, and ensure that the locations of those opportunities are clear. In addition, the changes will help prevent conflicts with navigable channels and other uses of anchorage waters. Currently, there are insufficient anchorage opportunities in the Captain of the Port Portland, Oregon, area of responsibility, and many of them conflict with navigable channels and other uses of the anchorage waters. Discussion of Proposed Rule The proposed rule would revise the following anchorages as noted. The Astoria North Anchorage would be revised to provide additional anchoring area and add an additional area to accommodate the swing of vessels. The Astoria South Anchorage would be PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 24719 revised to ensure that anchored vessels are clear of the navigable channel and that the anchorage correlates with current NOAA navigational charts. The Longview Anchorage would be revised to move it out of the navigational channel and expand it to account for vessel swing. The Kalama Anchorage would be revised to provide additional anchoring area and add an additional area to accommodate the swing of vessels. The Woodland Anchorage would be revised to ensure the anchorage correlates with current NOAA navigational charts. The Henrici Bar Anchorage would be revised to move it out of the navigational channel. The Willow Bar Anchorage would be renamed the Vancouver Lower Anchorage and revised to consolidate the Willow Bar Anchorage and the anchorage areas off of the Morgan Bar. The Kelley Point Anchorage would be revised to ensure the anchorage correlates with current NOAA navigational charts. The Hayden Island Anchorage would be renamed the Upper Vancouver Anchorage and revised to expand the anchorage and move the anchorage out of the navigational channel. The proposed rule would also create a new anchorage called the Cottonwood Island Anchorage near Cottonwood Island. The regulations governing the anchorages would be amended to remove provisions that are no longer necessary, due to changes in the use of the anchorage areas for fishing, and to add a provision to prevent anchoring vessels from entangling underground cables. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 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 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. The establishment of a new anchorage, modification of existing anchorages, and revision of the regulations governing anchorages do not have any significant costs associated with them. E:\FR\FM\26MYP1.SGM 26MYP1 24720 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 99 / Tuesday, May 26, 2009 / Proposed Rules Small Entities Federalism Energy Effects 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 or anchor in the Captain of the Port Portland, Oregon, area of responsibility. However, the establishment of a new anchorage, modification of existing anchorages, and revision of the regulations governing anchorages that would result from this rule would have no economic impact on small entities because anchorages can still be transited and used for other maritime activities besides anchoring. 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. 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. 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. 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 the Waterways Management Branch, Coast Guard Sector, Portland, Oregon, telephone 503–240–9300. 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 would call for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520.). VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:39 May 22, 2009 Jkt 217001 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 affect 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. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 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 made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. This proposed rule involves the establishment of a new anchorage, modification of existing anchorages, and revision of the regulations governing anchorages in the Captain of the Port Portland, Oregon, area of responsibility, which are categorically excluded under section E:\FR\FM\26MYP1.SGM 26MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 99 / Tuesday, May 26, 2009 / Proposed Rules 2.B.2 Figure 2–1, paragraph 34(f), of the Instruction. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 110 Anchorage grounds.

Background and Purpose

    The establishment of a new anchorage, modification of existing 
anchorages, and revision of the regulations governing anchorages 
contained in this rule are necessary to ensure sufficient anchorage 
opportunities in the Captain of the Port Portland, Oregon, area of 
responsibility, and ensure that the locations of those opportunities 
are clear. In addition, the changes will help prevent conflicts with 
navigable channels and other uses of anchorage waters. Currently, there 
are insufficient anchorage opportunities in the Captain of the Port 
Portland, Oregon, area of responsibility, and many of them conflict 
with navigable channels and other uses of the anchorage waters.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The proposed rule would revise the following anchorages as noted. 
The Astoria North Anchorage would be revised to provide additional 
anchoring area and add an additional area to accommodate the swing of 
vessels. The Astoria South Anchorage would be revised to ensure that 
anchored vessels are clear of the navigable channel and that the 
anchorage correlates with current NOAA navigational charts. The 
Longview Anchorage would be revised to move it out of the navigational 
channel and expand it to account for vessel swing. The Kalama Anchorage 
would be revised to provide additional anchoring area and add an 
additional area to accommodate the swing of vessels. The Woodland 
Anchorage would be revised to ensure the anchorage correlates with 
current NOAA navigational charts. The Henrici Bar Anchorage would be 
revised to move it out of the navigational channel. The Willow Bar 
Anchorage would be renamed the Vancouver Lower Anchorage and revised to 
consolidate the Willow Bar Anchorage and the anchorage areas off of the 
Morgan Bar. The Kelley Point Anchorage would be revised to ensure the 
anchorage correlates with current NOAA navigational charts. The Hayden 
Island Anchorage would be renamed the Upper Vancouver Anchorage and 
revised to expand the anchorage and move the anchorage out of the 
navigational channel.
    The proposed rule would also create a new anchorage called the 
Cottonwood Island Anchorage near Cottonwood Island.
    The regulations governing the anchorages would be amended to remove 
provisions that are no longer necessary, due to changes in the use of 
the anchorage areas for fishing, and to add a provision to prevent 
anchoring vessels from entangling underground cables.

Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
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 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. The establishment of a new 
anchorage, modification of existing anchorages, and revision of the 
regulations governing anchorages do not have any significant costs 
associated with them.

[[Page 24720]]

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 or anchor in the Captain of 
the Port Portland, Oregon, area of responsibility. However, the 
establishment of a new anchorage, modification of existing anchorages, 
and revision of the regulations governing anchorages that would result 
from this rule would have no economic impact on small entities because 
anchorages can still be transited and used for other maritime 
activities besides anchoring.
    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 the Waterways Management Branch, 
Coast Guard Sector, Portland, Oregon, telephone 503-240-9300. 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 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 affect 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 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 Department of Homeland 
Security Management Directive 023-01 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 made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a 
category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a 
significant effect on the human environment. A preliminary 
environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is 
available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. This proposed 
rule involves the establishment of a new anchorage, modification of 
existing anchorages, and revision of the regulations governing 
anchorages in the Captain of the Port Portland, Oregon, area of 
responsibility, which are categorically excluded under section

[[Page 24721]]

2.B.2 Figure 2-1, paragraph 34(f), of the Instruction. We seek any 
comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant 
environmental impact from this proposed rule.

primary use of deep-draft vessels over 200 feet in length.
    (2) If a vessel under 200 feet in length is anchored in a 
designated anchorage, the master or person in charge of the vessel 
shall:
    (i) Ensure that the vessel is anchored so as to minimize conflict 
with large, deep-draft vessels utilizing or seeking to utilize the 
anchorage; and
    (ii) Move the vessel out of the area if requested by the master of 
a large, deep-draft vessel seeking to enter or depart the area or if 
directed by the Captain of the Port.
    (3) Vessels desiring to anchor in designated anchorages shall 
contact the pilot office that manages that anchorage to request an 
appropriate position to anchor. Columbia River Bar Pilots manage 
Astoria North Anchorage and Astoria South Anchorage. Columbia River 
Pilots manage all designated anchorages upriver from Astoria.
    (4) No vessel may occupy a designated anchorage for more than 30 
consecutive days without permission from the Captain of the Port.
    (5) No vessel being layed-up or dismantled or undergoing major 
alterations or repairs may occupy a designated anchorage without 
permission from the Captain of the Port.
    (6) No vessel carrying a Cargo of Particular Hazard listed in Sec.  
126.10 of this chapter may occupy a designated anchorage without 
permission from the Captain of the Port.
    (7) No vessel in a condition such that it is likely to sink or 
otherwise become a hazard to the operation of other vessels shall 
occupy a designated anchorage except in an emergency, and then only for 
such periods as may be authorized by the Captain of the Port.
    (8) Vessels anchoring in Astoria North Anchorage should avoid 
placing their anchor in the charted cable area.
