SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a E:\FR\FM\27JYR1.SGM 27JYR1 43822 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 143 / Tuesday, July 27, 2010 / Rules and Regulations notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule. It would be impracticable to issue an NPRM for this rule, because a safety zone is needed immediately to protect personnel and vessels associate with response operations at the staging area at Shell Beach. 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. Potential safety hazards associated with response activities at this location prohibits regularly issued safety zones. Basis and Purpose This response staging area is in support of the DEEPWATER HORIZON oil spill clean-up effort. This safety zone requires that vessels maintain the slowest safe speed to maintain steerage. This rule is needed to protect members of the response effort by creating a no wake zone in the vicinity of the staging area. In addition, the rule is needed to protect mariners transiting in or through the area from the dangers associated with navigating around equipment deployed in support of the clean-up efforts. Discussion of Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone encompassing the coastal areas affected by the DEEPWATER HORIZON oil spill on the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) at Mile 42 at Shell Beach. The safety zone will encompass the entire width of the MRGO, 500 yards above and 500 yards below the response staging area. In accordance with the general regulation in § 165.23 of this part, vessels must transit at the slowest safe speed to allow for steerage to comply with the no wake zone located in (a)(1). Vessels must exercise caution when transiting this area to observe the no wake zone. The Coast Guard will enforce this safety zone from June 24 through September 24, 2010. jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with RULES 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 an emergency regulatory action under section 6(a)(3)(D) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and requires compliance with the ordinary review procedure to the extent practicable. The VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:25 Jul 26, 2010 Jkt 220001 Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. This rule has been deemed an emergency regulatory action after consultation with the Eighth Coast Guard District Legal Office, CG–0941 and CG–0943. Although this regulation will restrict access to the area, the effect of the rule will not be significant because the safety zone will only be in place for a limited specified time period and is for a limited size and notice will be provided to the maritime community through Safety Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Marine Safety Information Bulletins. Additionally, persons or vessels requiring deviations from this rule may request permission from the Captain of the Port New Orleans. Small Entities 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. 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 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 or operators of vessels, intending to transit the MRGO at Mile 42 in the vicinity of the DEEPWATER HORIZON oil spill response staging area at Shell Beach and where oil spill response activities are taking place. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: the safety zone will only be in place for a limited specified time period and is for a limited size; notice will be provided to the maritime community through Safety Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Marine Safety Information Bulletins; and persons or vessels requiring deviations from this rule may request permission from the Captain of the Port New Orleans. Finally, we note that vessels can transit the area, but merely must do so at reduced speeds. Collection of Information Assistance for Small Entities Civil Justice Reform Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we offer to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they can 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. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 This rule calls 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 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 (adjusted for inflation) 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. 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. E:\FR\FM\27JYR1.SGM 27JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 143 / Tuesday, July 27, 2010 / Rules and Regulations 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. 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. jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:25 Jul 26, 2010 Jkt 220001 43823 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 which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction. This rule involves the establishment of a safety zone. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction, an environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are required for this rule because it concerns a situation of more than 1 week in duration. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination will be made available in the docket upon publication in the Federal Register. New Orleans. The COTP may be contacted at telephone (504) 846–5923. (3) All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port New Orleans and designated personnel.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 the agency for good cause finds that those 
procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest.'' Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a

[[Page 43822]]

notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule. It 
would be impracticable to issue an NPRM for this rule, because a safety 
zone is needed immediately to protect personnel and vessels associate 
with response operations at the staging area at Shell Beach.
    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. Potential safety hazards 
associated with response activities at this location prohibits 
regularly issued safety zones.

Basis and Purpose

    This response staging area is in support of the DEEPWATER HORIZON 
oil spill clean-up effort. This safety zone requires that vessels 
maintain the slowest safe speed to maintain steerage. This rule is 
needed to protect members of the response effort by creating a no wake 
zone in the vicinity of the staging area. In addition, the rule is 
needed to protect mariners transiting in or through the area from the 
dangers associated with navigating around equipment deployed in support 
of the clean-up efforts.

Discussion of Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone encompassing the 
coastal areas affected by the DEEPWATER HORIZON oil spill on the 
Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) at Mile 42 at Shell Beach. The 
safety zone will encompass the entire width of the MRGO, 500 yards 
above and 500 yards below the response staging area. In accordance with 
the general regulation in Sec.  165.23 of this part, vessels must 
transit at the slowest safe speed to allow for steerage to comply with 
the no wake zone located in (a)(1). Vessels must exercise caution when 
transiting this area to observe the no wake zone. The Coast Guard will 
enforce this safety zone from June 24 through September 24, 2010.

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 an emergency regulatory action under section 
6(a)(3)(D) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, 
and requires compliance with the ordinary review procedure to the 
extent practicable. The Office of Management and Budget has not 
reviewed it under that Order.
    This rule has been deemed an emergency regulatory action after 
consultation with the Eighth Coast Guard District Legal Office, CG-0941 
and CG-0943. Although this regulation will restrict access to the area, 
the effect of the rule will not be significant because the safety zone 
will only be in place for a limited specified time period and is for a 
limited size and notice will be provided to the maritime community 
through Safety Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Marine Safety 
Information Bulletins. Additionally, persons or vessels requiring 
deviations from this rule may request permission from the Captain of 
the Port New Orleans.

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 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 or operators of vessels, intending to 
transit the MRGO at Mile 42 in the vicinity of the DEEPWATER HORIZON 
oil spill response staging area at Shell Beach and where oil spill 
response activities are taking place. This safety zone will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
for the following reasons: the safety zone will only be in place for a 
limited specified time period and is for a limited size; notice will be 
provided to the maritime community through Safety Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners and Marine Safety Information Bulletins; and persons or 
vessels requiring deviations from this rule may request permission from 
the Captain of the Port New Orleans. Finally, we note that vessels can 
transit the area, but merely must do so at reduced speeds.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we offer to assist small 
entities in understanding the rule so that they can 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).

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.

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 an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 which do not individually 
or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. 
This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph 
(34)(g), of the Instruction. This rule involves the establishment of a 
safety zone.
    Under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction, an 
environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are required for this rule because it concerns a 
situation of more than 1 week in duration. An environmental analysis 
checklist and a categorical exclusion determination will be made 
available in the docket upon publication in the Federal Register.
