Background NOAA established the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary (GFNMS) in 1981 to protect and preserve a unique and fragile ecological community, including the largest seabird colony in the contiguous United States, and diverse and abundant marine mammals. The GFNMS lies off the coast of California, to the west and north of San Francisco, and is composed of 1,279 square statute miles (966 square nautical miles) of offshore waters, and the submerged lands thereunder, extending out to and around the Farallon Islands and nearshore waters (up to the mean high tide line) from Bodega Head to Rocky Point in Marin. For more information about the GFNMS, see https://farallones.noaa.gov. NOAA established the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) in 1992 for the purposes of protecting and managing the conservation, ecological, recreational, research, educational, historical, and esthetic resources and qualities of the area. The MBNMS is located offshore of California’s central coast, adjacent to and south of the GFNMS. It encompasses a shoreline length of approximately 276 statute miles (240 nmi) between Rocky Pt. in Marin County and Cambria in San Luis Obispo County. The sanctuary spans approximately 6,094 square statute miles (4,602 square nautical miles) of ocean and coastal waters, and the submerged lands thereunder, extending an average distance of 30 statute miles (26 nmi) from shore. The distant Davidson Seamount is also part of the sanctuary, though it does not share a contiguous boundary. Supporting some of the world’s most diverse marine ecosystems, the MBNMS is home to numerous mammals, seabirds, fishes, invertebrates, sea turtles and plants in a remarkably productive coastal environment. For more information about the MBNMS, please see https:// montereybay.noaa.gov. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:02 Aug 31, 2010 Jkt 220001 NOAA established the Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary (CBNMS) in 1989 to protect and preserve the extraordinary ecosystem, including marine birds, mammals, and other natural resources of Cordell Bank and its surrounding waters. The CBNMS protects an area of 529 square statute miles (399 square nautical miles) of marine waters, and the submerged lands thereunder, off the northern California coast. The main feature of the sanctuary is Cordell Bank, an offshore granite bank located on the edge of the continental shelf, about 23 statute miles (20 nmi) west of the Point Reyes lighthouse. The CBNMS is entirely offshore and shares its southern and eastern boundary with the GFNMS. The western boundary is the 1000 fathom isobath on the edge of the continental slope. The CBNMS is located in one of the world’s four major coastal upwelling systems. The combination of oceanic conditions and undersea topography provides for a highly productive environment in a discrete, well-defined area. For more information about the CBNMS, please see https://cordellbank.noaa.gov. Pursuant to section 304(e) of the National Marine Sanctuaries Act (16 U.S.C. 1434 et seq.) (NMSA), the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) conducted a joint review of the management plans for the Gulf of the Farallones, Monterey Bay and Cordell Bank national marine sanctuaries between 2001 and 2008. This review resulted in revised management plans, regulations, and terms of designation for all three sanctuaries. On November 20, 2008, NOAA published the associated final rule and terms of designation (73 FR 70488) and released the revised management plans. II. Technical Corrections In the November 20, 2008 Federal Register notice, NOAA published the coordinates for the outer boundary of GFNMS and certain zones within the outer boundary. Both sets of coordinates contained technical omissions that need to be corrected so that the digital representation of these boundaries on a map would more accurately represent the boundaries as they are described in the language of the rule. The outer boundary coordinate table for GFNMS (Appendix A) published on November 20, 2008 did not contain the final coordinate of the shoreward point. Through this action, NOAA is making a technical correction by reprinting the outer boundary table in Appendix A in its entirety, with the omitted coordinate, point 32. With this correction, from Point 31, the boundary follows the MBNMS boundary northeastward in a PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 geodetic line towards Point 32 (37.88225N and 122.62753W) until it intersects the mean high water line (MHWL). Because the southern boundary of the GFNMS is the same as the northern boundary for the MBNMS, NOAA is also reprinting the boundary coordinates for the MBNMS (Appendix A for part M of section 922) with this same point (point 32) replacing the existing Point 1 with the same coordinate listed above (37.88225N and 122.62753W). Additional points were changed to correct for a non-stationary intersection of the transient MHWL and the lines connecting offshore and onshore points, and therefore required several points to be moved shoreward, including: Point 35 (35.55483N and 121.10399W), Point 36 (37.59421N and 122.52001W), and Point 39 (37.81777N and 122.53008W). These corrections do not alter the existing boundaries of either sanctuary, but rather provide data points that facilitate the correct depiction of the boundaries as defined by the rule when the points are mapped. The November 20, 2008 final rule also included a provision to prohibit vessels from anchoring in designated seagrass protection zones in Tomales Bay (with an exception for mariculture operations conducted pursuant to a valid lease, permit, or license). This prohibition was designed to protect the important and fragile seagrass found in several areas of Tomales Bay from the effects of vessel anchor damage. In publishing the boundary coordinates for two of the seven seagrass protection zones, NOAA omitted points that made accurate mapping difficult. NOAA erroneously omitted one point in the table for Zone 2 and one coordinate in the table for Zone 4. As such, NOAA is republishing the coordinate tables for zones 2 and 4 to allow accurate GPS plotting. Inclusion of these previously missing data points does not change the boundaries of either protection zone established in the final rule but rather allows the boundaries of these zones to be correctly delineated on a map. The final rule in 2008 also inadvertently failed to expressly except from the discharge requirements applicable to cruise ships ‘‘vessel engine or generator exhaust’’ emitted in order to operate the ship. Through this rule, NOAA is correcting this omission by explicitly excepting from the discharge requirements for cruise ships vessel engine or generator exhaust. This action does not change the intent of the final rule. Historically, cruise ships have regularly transited through the sanctuaries. Given their means of propulsion, cruise ships must discharge vessel engine and generator exhaust to E:\FR\FM\01SER1.SGM 01SER1 53569 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 169 / Wednesday, September 1, 2010 / Rules and Regulations coordinate tables, implementation of this final rule will not begin until October 1, 2010 in order to give the public reasonable time to take note of the mapping refinements. III. Classification mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with RULES operate. In recognition of this, regulations in place prior to this rulemaking specifically authorized the discharge of vessel exhaust from all types of vessels, including cruise ships. As is evident from the 2006 proposed rules, the 2008 final rule and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) associated with the rule-making, NOAA’s intent was to allow the continued operation of cruise ships within sanctuaries, but subject to greater limitations on certain discharges or deposits, particularly sewage and graywater. Indeed, both the proposed and final rules specifically allow cruise ships to discharge clean engine cooling water, which is produced incidental to vessel operations. Absent an exception for engine and generator exhaust, which under the final rule remains expressly permissible to all other vessels that operate within the sanctuaries, the rule would inadvertently ban all cruise ships from operating in the sanctuaries. The final rule in 2008 contained an erroneous and possibly confusing duplication in the description of Appendix B to Subpart M for the MBNMS Overflight Restriction Zones. The description as it is currently written in paragraphs 1 and 2 includes both the words ‘‘heading’’ and ‘‘bearing.’’ NOAA is correcting this error by eliminating the word ‘‘heading’’ from each description. The revised Appendix B to Subpart M is printed with the corrections in the regulatory text below. Last, the final rule contained the redundant use of the word ‘‘true’’ in the Mavericks motorized personal watercraft (MPWC) zone description in Appendix E to Subpart M for the MBNMS—Motorized Personal Watercraft Zones and Access Routes Within the Sanctuary. NOAA is correcting this error and removing the redundant words in paragraphs 2 and 5 under this heading. The revised Appendix E to Subpart M is printed with the corrections in the regulatory text below. List of Subjects in 15 CFR Part 922 Administrative practice and procedure, Boundary coordinates, Harbors, Motorized personal watercraft (MPWC), Recreation and recreation areas, Research, Seagrass protection, Water resources, Wildlife, Zones. A. Administrative Procedure Act The Acting Assistant Administrator finds good cause pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3), respectively, to waive the requirements of public notice and comment and 30-day delay in effectiveness because they are unnecessary. This rule makes technical non-substantive corrections to errors in the regulations of November 20, 2008 to clarify the intent of that rule. The intent of the final rule published in 2008 is not affected by these corrections. With regard to the corrections to the VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:02 Aug 31, 2010 Jkt 220001 B. National Environmental Policy Act NOAA prepared a final environmental impact statement (FEIS) to evaluate the regulatory changes for the JMPR. This rule does not change that assessment, as this rule contains strictly technical corrections and does not change the intent of the original regulations. C. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Impact This regulatory action has been determined to be not significant within the meaning of Executive Order 12866. D. Executive Order 13132: Federalism Assessment NOAA has concluded that this regulatory action does not fall within the definition of ‘‘policies that have federalism implications’’ within the meaning of Executive Order 13132. The changes will not preempt State law. E. Regulatory Flexibility Act Because notice and opportunity for comment are not required for this action pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are inapplicable. Therefore, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required and has not been prepared. F. Paperwork Reduction Act This correction amendment does not contain information collections that are subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act. Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the PRA, unless that collection of information displays a currently valid OMB Control Number.

Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366– 9826. 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 notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because it is contrary to the public interest to delay the effective date of this rule. Delaying the effective date by first publishing an NPRM would be contrary to the safety zone’s intended objectives because immediate action is needed to restrict vessel movement during racing activity in order to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and the maritime public. 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. Due to the need for immediate action, the restriction of vessel traffic is necessary to protect life and property; therefore, a 30-day notice is impracticable. Delaying the effective date would be contrary to the safety zone’s intended objectives of protecting persons and vessels involved in the event, and enhancing public and maritime safety. Basis and Purpose This temporary rule addresses safety concerns associated with the Olympia Harbor Days tugboat races. Tugboat races result in vessel and spectator congestion in the proximity of the race course. Additionally, the draft of these vessels creates a large wake when accelerating at fast speeds during races. This safety zone is necessary to ensure spectators remain an adequate distance from the race course and to provide unencumbered access for emergency response craft in the event of a racerelated emergency. This safety zone will do so by prohibiting persons and vessel PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 operators from entering, transiting or remaining within this safety zone while enforced. Discussion of Rule Olympia Harbor Days is an annual tugboat race in Budd Inlet, WA involving three classes of tugboat races. Each class of vessel will compete in a heat which will take place in the navigation channel. This safety zone restricts vessel movement in the navigation channel during each heat of racing. This rule is effective from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. on September 5th, 2010. The safety zone will encompass all waters of Budd Inlet, WA the width of the navigation channel south of a line connecting the following points: 47°05′34″ N 122°55′53″ W and 47°05′34″ N 122°55′28″ W, until reaching the northernmost end of the navigation channel at a line connecting the following points 47°05′06″ N 122°55′28″ W and 47°05′03″ N, 122°55′44″ W then southeasterly until reaching the southernmost entrance of the navigation channel at a line connecting the following points 47°04′00″ N 122°54′28″ N 122°54′35″ W. Access to the zone will be restricted during the specified date and time. Entry into, transit through, mooring or anchoring within this zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, Puget Sound or Designated Representative. 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. This rule is not a significant regulatory action because it is short in duration and vessels will be able to transit the navigation channel between heats of racing. 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 E:\FR\FM\01SER1.SGM 01SER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    NOAA established the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine 
Sanctuary (GFNMS) in 1981 to protect and preserve a unique and fragile 
ecological community, including the largest seabird colony in the 
contiguous United States, and diverse and abundant marine mammals. The 
GFNMS lies off the coast of California, to the west and north of San 
Francisco, and is composed of 1,279 square statute miles (966 square 
nautical miles) of offshore waters, and the submerged lands thereunder, 
extending out to and around the Farallon Islands and nearshore waters 
(up to the mean high tide line) from Bodega Head to Rocky Point in 
Marin. For more information about the GFNMS, see https://farallones.noaa.gov.
    NOAA established the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) 
in 1992 for the purposes of protecting and managing the conservation, 
ecological, recreational, research, educational, historical, and 
esthetic resources and qualities of the area. The MBNMS is located 
offshore of California's central coast, adjacent to and south of the 
GFNMS. It encompasses a shoreline length of approximately 276 statute 
miles (240 nmi) between Rocky Pt. in Marin County and Cambria in San 
Luis Obispo County. The sanctuary spans approximately 6,094 square 
statute miles (4,602 square nautical miles) of ocean and coastal 
waters, and the submerged lands thereunder, extending an average 
distance of 30 statute miles (26 nmi) from shore. The distant Davidson 
Seamount is also part of the sanctuary, though it does not share a 
contiguous boundary. Supporting some of the world's most diverse marine 
ecosystems, the MBNMS is home to numerous mammals, seabirds, fishes, 
invertebrates, sea turtles and plants in a remarkably productive 
coastal environment. For more information about the MBNMS, please see 
https://montereybay.noaa.gov.
    NOAA established the Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary (CBNMS) 
in 1989 to protect and preserve the extraordinary ecosystem, including 
marine birds, mammals, and other natural resources of Cordell Bank and 
its surrounding waters. The CBNMS protects an area of 529 square 
statute miles (399 square nautical miles) of marine waters, and the 
submerged lands thereunder, off the northern California coast. The main 
feature of the sanctuary is Cordell Bank, an offshore granite bank 
located on the edge of the continental shelf, about 23 statute miles 
(20 nmi) west of the Point Reyes lighthouse. The CBNMS is entirely 
offshore and shares its southern and eastern boundary with the GFNMS. 
The western boundary is the 1000 fathom isobath on the edge of the 
continental slope. The CBNMS is located in one of the world's four 
major coastal upwelling systems. The combination of oceanic conditions 
and undersea topography provides for a highly productive environment in 
a discrete, well-defined area. For more information about the CBNMS, 
please see https://cordellbank.noaa.gov.
    Pursuant to section 304(e) of the National Marine Sanctuaries Act 
(16 U.S.C. 1434 et seq.) (NMSA), the Office of National Marine 
Sanctuaries (ONMS) conducted a joint review of the management plans for 
the Gulf of the Farallones, Monterey Bay and Cordell Bank national 
marine sanctuaries between 2001 and 2008. This review resulted in 
revised management plans, regulations, and terms of designation for all 
three sanctuaries. On November 20, 2008, NOAA published the associated 
final rule and terms of designation (73 FR 70488) and released the 
revised management plans.

II. Technical Corrections

    In the November 20, 2008 Federal Register notice, NOAA published 
the coordinates for the outer boundary of GFNMS and certain zones 
within the outer boundary. Both sets of coordinates contained technical 
omissions that need to be corrected so that the digital representation 
of these boundaries on a map would more accurately represent the 
boundaries as they are described in the language of the rule.
    The outer boundary coordinate table for GFNMS (Appendix A) 
published on November 20, 2008 did not contain the final coordinate of 
the shoreward point. Through this action, NOAA is making a technical 
correction by reprinting the outer boundary table in Appendix A in its 
entirety, with the omitted coordinate, point 32. With this correction, 
from Point 31, the boundary follows the MBNMS boundary northeastward in 
a geodetic line towards Point 32 (37.88225N and 122.62753W) until it 
intersects the mean high water line (MHWL). Because the southern 
boundary of the GFNMS is the same as the northern boundary for the 
MBNMS, NOAA is also reprinting the boundary coordinates for the MBNMS 
(Appendix A for part M of section 922) with this same point (point 32) 
replacing the existing Point 1 with the same coordinate listed above 
(37.88225N and 122.62753W). Additional points were changed to correct 
for a non-stationary intersection of the transient MHWL and the lines 
connecting offshore and onshore points, and therefore required several 
points to be moved shoreward, including: Point 35 (35.55483N and 
121.10399W), Point 36 (37.59421N and 122.52001W), and Point 39 
(37.81777N and 122.53008W). These corrections do not alter the existing 
boundaries of either sanctuary, but rather provide data points that 
facilitate the correct depiction of the boundaries as defined by the 
rule when the points are mapped.
    The November 20, 2008 final rule also included a provision to 
prohibit vessels from anchoring in designated seagrass protection zones 
in Tomales Bay (with an exception for mariculture operations conducted 
pursuant to a valid lease, permit, or license). This prohibition was 
designed to protect the important and fragile seagrass found in several 
areas of Tomales Bay from the effects of vessel anchor damage. In 
publishing the boundary coordinates for two of the seven seagrass 
protection zones, NOAA omitted points that made accurate mapping 
difficult. NOAA erroneously omitted one point in the table for Zone 2 
and one coordinate in the table for Zone 4. As such, NOAA is 
republishing the coordinate tables for zones 2 and 4 to allow accurate 
GPS plotting. Inclusion of these previously missing data points does 
not change the boundaries of either protection zone established in the 
final rule but rather allows the boundaries of these zones to be 
correctly delineated on a map.
    The final rule in 2008 also inadvertently failed to expressly 
except from the discharge requirements applicable to cruise ships 
``vessel engine or generator exhaust'' emitted in order to operate the 
ship. Through this rule, NOAA is correcting this omission by explicitly 
excepting from the discharge requirements for cruise ships vessel 
engine or generator exhaust.
    This action does not change the intent of the final rule. 
Historically, cruise ships have regularly transited through the 
sanctuaries. Given their means of propulsion, cruise ships must 
discharge vessel engine and generator exhaust to

[[Page 53569]]

operate. In recognition of this, regulations in place prior to this 
rule-making specifically authorized the discharge of vessel exhaust 
from all types of vessels, including cruise ships. As is evident from 
the 2006 proposed rules, the 2008 final rule and Final Environmental 
Impact Statement (FEIS) associated with the rule-making, NOAA's intent 
was to allow the continued operation of cruise ships within 
sanctuaries, but subject to greater limitations on certain discharges 
or deposits, particularly sewage and graywater. Indeed, both the 
proposed and final rules specifically allow cruise ships to discharge 
clean engine cooling water, which is produced incidental to vessel 
operations. Absent an exception for engine and generator exhaust, which 
under the final rule remains expressly permissible to all other vessels 
that operate within the sanctuaries, the rule would inadvertently ban 
all cruise ships from operating in the sanctuaries.
    The final rule in 2008 contained an erroneous and possibly 
confusing duplication in the description of Appendix B to Subpart M for 
the MBNMS Overflight Restriction Zones. The description as it is 
currently written in paragraphs 1 and 2 includes both the words 
``heading'' and ``bearing.'' NOAA is correcting this error by 
eliminating the word ``heading'' from each description. The revised 
Appendix B to Subpart M is printed with the corrections in the 
regulatory text below.
    Last, the final rule contained the redundant use of the word 
``true'' in the Mavericks motorized personal watercraft (MPWC) zone 
description in Appendix E to Subpart M for the MBNMS--Motorized 
Personal Watercraft Zones and Access Routes Within the Sanctuary. NOAA 
is correcting this error and removing the redundant words in paragraphs 
2 and 5 under this heading. The revised Appendix E to Subpart M is 
printed with the corrections in the regulatory text below.

III. Classification

A. Administrative Procedure Act

    The Acting Assistant Administrator finds good cause pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and (d)(3), respectively, to waive the requirements of 
public notice and comment and 30-day delay in effectiveness because 
they are unnecessary. This rule makes technical non-substantive 
corrections to errors in the regulations of November 20, 2008 to 
clarify the intent of that rule. The intent of the final rule published 
in 2008 is not affected by these corrections. With regard to the 
corrections to the coordinate tables, implementation of this final rule 
will not begin until October 1, 2010 in order to give the public 
reasonable time to take note of the mapping refinements.

B. National Environmental Policy Act

    NOAA prepared a final environmental impact statement (FEIS) to 
evaluate the regulatory changes for the JMPR. This rule does not change 
that assessment, as this rule contains strictly technical corrections 
and does not change the intent of the original regulations.

C. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Impact

    This regulatory action has been determined to be not significant 
within the meaning of Executive Order 12866.

D. Executive Order 13132: Federalism Assessment

    NOAA has concluded that this regulatory action does not fall within 
the definition of ``policies that have federalism implications'' within 
the meaning of Executive Order 13132. The changes will not preempt 
State law.

E. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because notice and opportunity for comment are not required for 
this action pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law, the analytical 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) 
are inapplicable. Therefore, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not 
required and has not been prepared.

F. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This correction amendment does not contain information collections 
that are subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act. 
Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, no person is required 
to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure 
to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements 
of the PRA, unless that collection of information displays a currently 
valid OMB Control Number.
