Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes to update and consolidate the list of marine events occurring annually within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. These amendments will standardize the special local regulations language, update listed events, delete events that are no longer occurring, add new unlisted annual events to the regulation, and standardize the format for all tables in these four sections. When these special local regulations are activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this rule would enable vessel movement restrictions in the regulated area. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before March 11, 2011. Requests for public meetings must be received by the Coast Guard on or before March 1, 2011.

These events include sailing regattas, powerboat races, rowboat races, parades, and swim events. Many of the annual events requiring special local regulations do not currently reflect changes in actual dates and other required information. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:54 Feb 08, 2011 Jkt 223001 The effect of these proposed special local regulations will be to restrict general navigation in the vicinity of the events, from the start of each event until the conclusion of that event. These areas will be patrolled at the discretion of the Coast Guard. Except for persons or vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. These regulations are needed to keep spectators and vessels a safe distance away from the specified events to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and transiting vessels Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard proposes to revise 33 CFR 100.1101, 100.1102, 100.1103, and to add 33 CFR 100.1104. The proposed changes will effectively update the outdated special local regulations. The proposed amendments and addition will address minor corrections required in the regulatory text. The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.1101, 1101.1102, and 100.1103 by replacing paragraphs a and b of each section to conform to a uniform regulatory text for these sections of 33 CFR Part 100 that govern annual marine events within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. Table 1 for each of the listed sections is being updated as follows: Existing events that continue to occur are being updated with current information, previously unlisted events are being added, and listed events that the Coast Guard has been unable to verify as continuing are being deleted. The proposed addition of a 33 CFR 100.1104 is needed to ease administrative burden on the event sponsors and the public by adding a specific section for annual marine events requiring special local regulations in the Los Angeles Long Beach Captain of the Port Zone. 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. We expect the economic impact of this proposed rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 unnecessary. This rule is not a significant regulatory action because the regulations exist for a limited period of time on a limited portion of the waterways. Further, individuals and vessels desiring to use the affected portion of the waterways may seek permission from the Patrol Commander to use the affected areas. 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. We expect this proposed rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to fish, transit, or anchor in the waters affected by these special local regulations. These special local regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: Small vessel traffic will be able to pass safely around the area and vessels engaged in event activities, sightseeing and commercial fishing have ample space outside of the area governed by the special local regulations to engage in these activities. Small entities and the maritime public will be advised of implementation of these special local regulations via public notice to mariners or notice of implementation published in the Federal Register. 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. E:\FR\FM\09FEP1.SGM 09FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 27 / Wednesday, February 9, 2011 / Proposed Rules 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 Lieutenant Lucas Mancini, Eleventh Coast Guard District Prevention Division, Waterways Management Branch, Coast Guard; telephone 510–437–3801, e-mail Lucas.W.Mancini@uscg.mil. 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 (adjusted for inflation) 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 cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with PROPOSALS 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, VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:54 Feb 08, 2011 Jkt 223001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 7125 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, under paragraph 34(h) of the Instruction, 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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule.

As a result of this change in circumstances, the proposed rulemaking would no longer improve the schedule for waterway users. Background On April 24, 2009, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Mantua Creek, Paulsboro, NJ’’ in the Federal Register (74 FR 18665–18667). The rulemaking would have allowed the drawbridge to operate on an advance notice basis year-round. Dated: January 27, 2011. William D. Lee, Rear Admiral, U.S. Coast Guard, Commander, Fifth Coast Guard District. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Withdrawal The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), the responsible party for the operation of the S.R. 44 Bridge, at mile 1.7, across Mantua Creek at Paulsboro, NJ, had requested to change the operating schedule for the S.R. 44 Bridge to require a four-hour advance notification of vessel openings year-round due to the decrease in vessel opening requests of the drawbridge in recent years. The Coast Guard recently received an application from the South Jersey Port Corporation and the Gloucester County Improvement Authority proposing the construction of an access road and bridge that will span Mantua Creek within close proximity to the upstream S.R. 44 Bridge. The proposed bridge will be a three-span composite steel plate girder bridge (fixed superstructure) with two concrete piers within Mantua Creek. Based on the expected increase in the use of the waterway and vessel opening requests of the S.R. 44 Bridge, the rulemaking could impose critical service delays to commercial vessels attempting to arrive promptly on scene PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Authority This action is taken under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 499; 33 CFR 1.05– 1; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.

Background and Purpose

    Marine events are annually held on a recurring basis on the 
navigable waters within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. These events 
include sailing regattas, powerboat races, rowboat races, parades, and 
swim events. Many of the annual events requiring special local 
regulations do not currently reflect changes in actual dates and other 
required information.
    The effect of these proposed special local regulations will be to 
restrict general navigation in the vicinity of the events, from the 
start of each event until the conclusion of that event. These areas 
will be patrolled at the discretion of the Coast Guard. Except for 
persons or vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, no 
person or vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. These 
regulations are needed to keep spectators and vessels a safe distance 
away from the specified events to ensure the safety of participants, 
spectators, and transiting vessels

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard proposes to revise 33 CFR 100.1101, 100.1102, 
100.1103, and to add 33 CFR 100.1104. The proposed changes will 
effectively update the outdated special local regulations. The proposed 
amendments and addition will address minor corrections required in the 
regulatory text.
    The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.1101, 1101.1102, and 
100.1103 by replacing paragraphs a and b of each section to conform to 
a uniform regulatory text for these sections of 33 CFR Part 100 that 
govern annual marine events within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. 
Table 1 for each of the listed sections is being updated as follows: 
Existing events that continue to occur are being updated with current 
information, previously unlisted events are being added, and listed 
events that the Coast Guard has been unable to verify as continuing are 
being deleted. The proposed addition of a 33 CFR 100.1104 is needed to 
ease administrative burden on the event sponsors and the public by 
adding a specific section for annual marine events requiring special 
local regulations in the Los Angeles Long Beach Captain of the Port 
Zone.

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. We expect the economic 
impact of this proposed rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory 
Evaluation is unnecessary. This rule is not a significant regulatory 
action because the regulations exist for a limited period of time on a 
limited portion of the waterways. Further, individuals and vessels 
desiring to use the affected portion of the waterways may seek 
permission from the Patrol Commander to use the affected areas.

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.
    We expect this proposed rule will affect the following entities, 
some of which may be small entities: The owners and operators of 
vessels intending to fish, transit, or anchor in the waters affected by 
these special local regulations. These special local regulations will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities for the following reasons: Small vessel traffic will be able 
to pass safely around the area and vessels engaged in event activities, 
sightseeing and commercial fishing have ample space outside of the area 
governed by the special local regulations to engage in these 
activities. Small entities and the maritime public will be advised of 
implementation of these special local regulations via public notice to 
mariners or notice of implementation published in the Federal Register.
    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.

[[Page 7125]]

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 Lieutenant Lucas 
Mancini, Eleventh Coast Guard District Prevention Division, Waterways 
Management Branch, Coast Guard; telephone 510-437-3801, e-mail 
Lucas.W.Mancini@uscg.mil. 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.

    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 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 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 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, under paragraph 34(h) of the 
Instruction, 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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the 
discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed 
rule.

representative; and will be located aboard the lead official patrol 
vessel. As the Sector Commander's representative, the PATCOM may 
terminate the event any time it is deemed necessary for the protection 
of life and property. PATCOM may be reached on VHF-FM Channel 13 
(156.65MHz) or 16 (156.8MHz) when required, by the call sign 
``PATCOM''.
    (4) The Patrol Commander may, upon request, allow the transit of 
commercial vessels through regulated areas when it is safe to do so.

    (b) Special local regulations. All persons and vessels not 
registered with the sponsor as participants or as official patrol 
vessels are considered spectators. The ``official patrol'' consists of 
any Coast Guard; other Federal, state, or local law enforcement; and 
any public or sponsor-provided vessels assigned or approved by the 
cognizant Coast Guard Sector Commander to patrol each event.
    (1) No spectator shall anchor, block, loiter, nor impede the 
through transit of participants or official patrol vessels in the 
regulated areas during all applicable effective dates and times unless 
cleared to do so by or through an official patrol vessel.
    (2) When hailed and/or signaled by an official patrol vessel, any 
spectator located within a regulated area during all applicable 
effective dates and times shall come to an immediate stop.
    (3) The Patrol Commander (PATCOM) is empowered to forbid and 
control the movement of all vessels in the regulated area. The Patrol 
Commander shall be designated by the cognizant Coast Guard Sector 
Commander; will be a U.S. Coast Guard commissioned officer, warrant 
officer, or petty officer to act as the Sector Commander's official 
representative; and will be located aboard the lead official patrol 
vessel. As the Sector Commander's representative, the PATCOM may 
terminate the event any time it is deemed necessary for the protection 
of life and property. PATCOM may be reached on VHF-FM Channel 13 
(156.65 MHz) or 16 (156.8 MHz) when required, by the call sign 
``PATCOM''.
    (4) The Patrol Commander may, upon request, allow the transit of 
commercial vessels through regulated areas when it is safe to do so.
