Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary special local regulation in the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone on Lake St. Clair, Harrison Township, Michigan. This special local regulation is intended to restrict vessels from portions of Lake St. Clair during the Harrison Township Grand Prix. This special local regulation is necessary to protect spectators and vessels from the hazards associated with powerboat races. DATES: This rule is effective on July 17, 2010 through July 18, 2010. ADDRESSES: 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–2010–0279 and are available online by going to https:// www.regulations.gov, inserting USCG– 2010–0279 in the ‘‘Keyword’’ box, and then clicking ‘‘Search.’’ This material is E:\FR\FM\09JYR1.SGM 09JYR1 39446 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 131 / Friday, July 9, 2010 / Rules and Regulations also available for inspection or copying at 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.

If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Renee V. Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366–9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: commercial vessels may request permission from the Captain of the Port Detroit to transit through the safety regulated area. The Coast Guard will give notice to the public via a Broadcast Notice to Mariners that the regulation is in effect. Additionally, the Captain of the Port will suspend enforcement of the regulated navigation area if the event for which the area is established ends earlier than the expected time. Regulatory Information On April 23, 2010, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Special Local Regulation; Harrison Township Grand Prix, Lake St. Clair, Harrison Township, MI in the Federal Register (75 FR 21194). We received zero comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. This rule is effective upon publication in the Federal Register, as the event is taking place within thirty days of publication. Delaying the effective date would negate the purpose of the rule. 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. We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This determination is based on the minimal time that vessels will be restricted from the area of the special local regulation, which is located in a portion of Lake St. Clair where the Coast Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the special local regulation’s enforcement. wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 Background and Purpose This temporary special local regulation is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and spectators from hazards associated with a powerboat race. The Captain of the Port Detroit has determined powerboat races in close proximity to watercraft and infrastructure pose significant risk to public safety and property. The likely combination of large numbers of recreation vessels, powerboats traveling at high speeds, and large numbers of spectators in close proximity to the water could easily result in serious injuries or fatalities. Establishing a special local regulation around the location of the race course will help ensure the safety of persons and property at these events and help minimize the associated risks. Discussion of Comments and Changes We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. Discussion of the Rule This rule will be enforced between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day of its effective period. In the event that this temporary special local regulation affects shipping, VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:49 Jul 08, 2010 Jkt 220001 Regulatory Analyses We developed this 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. 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 might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the portion of Lake St. Clair near Harrison Township, MI between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on July 17, 2010 through July 18, 2010. This special local regulation will not have a significant economic impact on PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 a substantial number of small entities, because of the minimal amount of time in which the special local regulation will be enforced. This special local regulation will be enforced for approximately six (6) hours each day for two days, twelve (12) hours total. In the event that this special local regulation affects shipping, commercial vessels may request permission from the Captain of the Port Detroit to transit through the regulated navigation area. 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 regulated navigation area if the event for which the regulated navigation area is established ends earlier than the expected time. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 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. 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 received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. 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 received E:\FR\FM\09JYR1.SGM 09JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 131 / Friday, July 9, 2010 / Rules and Regulations no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. 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 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. 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 received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 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 received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. Indian Tribal Governments 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:49 Jul 08, 2010 Jkt 220001 Government and Indian tribes. We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. 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. We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. 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. We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM. Environment We have analyzed this 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 concluded this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39447 environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction. This rule involves the establishment of a special local regulation issued in conjunction with a permitted powerboat race event. The environmental analysis conducted for the powerboat race event permit included an analysis of the impact of the special local regulation. Based on our preliminary determination, 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, we believe that this rule should be categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction, from further environmental documentation. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction, an environmental checklist and categorical exclusion determination is not required for this rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory Information

    On April 23, 2010, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) titled Special Local Regulation; Harrison Township Grand Prix, 
Lake St. Clair, Harrison Township, MI in the Federal Register (75 FR 
21194). We received zero comments on the proposed rule. No public 
meeting was requested, and none was held. This rule is effective upon 
publication in the Federal Register, as the event is taking place 
within thirty days of publication. Delaying the effective date would 
negate the purpose of the rule.

Background and Purpose

    This temporary special local regulation is necessary to ensure the 
safety of vessels and spectators from hazards associated with a 
powerboat race. The Captain of the Port Detroit has determined 
powerboat races in close proximity to watercraft and infrastructure 
pose significant risk to public safety and property. The likely 
combination of large numbers of recreation vessels, powerboats 
traveling at high speeds, and large numbers of spectators in close 
proximity to the water could easily result in serious injuries or 
fatalities. Establishing a special local regulation around the location 
of the race course will help ensure the safety of persons and property 
at these events and help minimize the associated risks.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes 
have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM.

Discussion of the Rule

    This rule will be enforced between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day of 
its effective period. In the event that this temporary special local 
regulation affects shipping, commercial vessels may request permission 
from the Captain of the Port Detroit to transit through the safety 
regulated area. The Coast Guard will give notice to the public via a 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners that the regulation is in effect. 
Additionally, the Captain of the Port will suspend enforcement of the 
regulated navigation area if the event for which the area is 
established ends earlier than the expected time.

Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this 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 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 rule to be so minimal that a 
full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This determination is based 
on the minimal time that vessels will be restricted from the area of 
the special local regulation, which is located in a portion of Lake St. 
Clair where the Coast Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to 
mariners from the special local regulation's enforcement.

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 might 
be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor in the portion of Lake St. Clair near Harrison 
Township, MI between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on July 17, 2010 through July 
18, 2010.
    This special local regulation will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities, because of the 
minimal amount of time in which the special local regulation will be 
enforced. This special local regulation will be enforced for 
approximately six (6) hours each day for two days, twelve (12) hours 
total. In the event that this special local regulation affects 
shipping, commercial vessels may request permission from the Captain of 
the Port Detroit to transit through the regulated navigation area. 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 regulated navigation area if the event for 
which the regulated navigation area is established ends earlier than 
the expected time.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
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.

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 received no 
comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this 
rule as proposed in the NPRM.

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 received

[[Page 39447]]

no comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to 
this rule as proposed in the NPRM.

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 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in 
such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in 
this preamble. We received no comments with regard to this rule and no 
changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights. We received no comments with regard to this rule and no changes 
have been made to this rule as proposed in the NPRM.

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 received no comments with 
regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as 
proposed in the NPRM.

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 received no comments with regard 
to this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in 
the NPRM.

Indian Tribal Governments

    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. We received no 
comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this 
rule as proposed in the NPRM.

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. We received no comments with regard to 
this rule and no changes have been made to this rule as proposed in the 
NPRM.

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. We received no 
comments with regard to this rule and no changes have been made to this 
rule as proposed in the NPRM.

Environment

    We have analyzed this 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 concluded 
this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or 
cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This 
rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h), of 
the Instruction. This rule involves the establishment of a special 
local regulation issued in conjunction with a permitted powerboat race 
event. The environmental analysis conducted for the powerboat race 
event permit included an analysis of the impact of the special local 
regulation. Based on our preliminary determination, 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, we believe 
that this rule should be categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, 
paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction, from further environmental 
documentation. Under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction, 
an environmental checklist and categorical exclusion determination is 
not required for this rule.
