Adrenal gland disorders affect bone calcium levels, blood pressure, metabolism, and mental status. We evaluate adrenalrelated linear growth impairments under 100.00; adrenal-related osteoporosis with fractures that compromises the ability to walk or to use the upper extremities under 101.00; adrenal-related hypertension that worsens heart failure or causes recurrent arrhythmias under 104.00; adrenal-related weight loss under 105.00; and mood disorders under 112.00. 5. Diabetes mellitus and other pancreatic gland disorders disrupt the production of several hormones, including insulin, that regulate metabolism and digestion. Insulin is essential to the absorption of glucose from the bloodstream into body cells for conversion into cellular energy. The most common pancreatic gland disorder is diabetes mellitus (DM). There are two major types of DM: type 1 and type 2. Both type 1 and type 2 DM are chronic disorders that can have serious, disabling complications that meet the duration requirement. Type 1 DM—previously known as ‘‘juvenile diabetes’’ or ‘‘insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus’’ (IDDM)—is an absolute deficiency of insulin secretion that commonly begins in childhood and continues throughout adulthood. Treatment of type 1 DM always requires lifelong daily insulin. With type 2 DM—previously known as ‘‘adult-onset diabetes mellitus’’ or ‘‘non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus’’ (NIDDM)—the body’s cells resist the effects of insulin, impairing glucose absorption and metabolism. Type 2 is less common than type 1 DM in children, but physicians are increasingly diagnosing type 2 DM before age 18. Treatment of type 2 DM generally requires lifestyle changes, such as increased exercise and dietary modification, and sometimes insulin in addition to other medications. While both type 1 and type 2 DM are usually controlled, some children do not achieve good control for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, hypoglycemia unawareness, other disorders that can affect blood glucose levels, inability to manage DM due to a mental disorder, or inadequate treatment. a. Hyperglycemia. Both types of DM cause hyperglycemia, which is an abnormally high level of blood glucose that may produce acute and long-term complications. Acute complications of hyperglycemia include diabetic ketoacidosis. Long-term complications of chronic hyperglycemia include many conditions affecting various body systems but are rare in children. b. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). DKA is an acute, potentially life-threatening complication of DM in which the chemical balance of the body becomes dangerously hyperglycemic and acidic. It results from a severe insulin deficiency, which can occur due to missed or inadequate daily insulin VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:58 Apr 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 therapy or in association with an acute illness. It usually requires hospital treatment to correct the acute complications of dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, and insulin deficiency. You may have serious complications resulting from your treatment, which we evaluate under the affected body system. For example, we evaluate cardiac arrhythmias under 104.00, intestinal necrosis under 105.00, and cerebral edema and seizures under 111.00. Recurrent episodes of DKA in adolescents may result from mood or eating disorders, which we evaluate under 112.00. c. Hypoglycemia. Children with DM may experience episodes of hypoglycemia, which is an abnormally low level of blood glucose. Most children age 6 and older recognize the symptoms of hypoglycemia and reverse them by consuming substances containing glucose; however, some do not take this step because of hypoglycemia unawareness. Severe hypoglycemia can lead to complications, including seizures or loss of consciousness, which we evaluate under 111.00, or altered mental status, cognitive deficits, and permanent brain damage, which we evaluate under 112.00. C. How do we evaluate DM in children? Listing 109.08 is only for children with DM who have not attained age 6 and who require daily insulin. For all other children (that is, children with DM who are age 6 or older and require daily insulin, and children of any age with DM who do not require daily insulin), we follow our rules for determining whether the DM is severe, alone or in combination with another impairment, whether it meets or medically equals the criteria of a listing in another body system, or functionally equals the listings under the criteria in § 416.926a, considering the factors in § 416.924a. The management of DM in children can be complex and variable from day to day, and all children with DM require some level of adult supervision. For example, if a child age 6 or older has a medical need for 24-houra-day adult supervision of insulin treatment, food intake, and physical activity to ensure survival, we will find that the child’s impairment functionally equals the listings based on the example in § 416.926a(m)(5). D. How do we evaluate other endocrine disorders that do not have effects that meet or medically equal the criteria of any listing in other body systems? If your impairment(s) does not meet or medically equal a listing in another body system, we will consider whether your impairment(s) functionally equals the listings under the criteria in § 416.926a, considering the factors in § 416.924a. When we decide whether you continue to be disabled, we use the rules in § 416.994a. 109.01 Category of Impairments, Endocrine 109.08 Any type of diabetes mellitus in a child who requires daily insulin and has not attained age 6. Consider under a disability until the attainment of age 6.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Regulatory Information On January 26, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled: Safety Zone; Repair of High Voltage Transmission Lines to Logan International Airport, Saugus River, Saugus, Massachusetts, in the Federal Register (76 FR 4575). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 Background and Purpose This rule is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and workers from the hazards associated with work related to repairs of high voltage transmission lines over navigable waters. This temporary safety zone will be in effect during the repair of the high voltage transmission lines that feed Logan Airport. The safety zone will be enforced immediately before, during and after the start of the repairs. National Grid, the transmission line VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:58 Apr 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 repair company has not specified the exact date repairs will commence, but they have advised the Coast Guard that repairs are planned for a 48 hour period in May, 2011, to begin each day at 9 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. The COTP will inform the public regarding the exact repair dates and details of the work covered by this safety zone using a variety of means, including, but not limited to, Notice of Enforcement (NOE) to be published in the Federal Register, Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local Notice to Mariners. All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the COTP Boston or the designated on-scene representative. Entering into, transiting through, mooring or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the COTP Boston or the designated on scene representative. The COTP or the designated on scene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16 or by telephone at (617) 223–5750. Discussion of Comments and Changes We received no comments. A change has been made to this rule regarding how the Coast Guard will notify the public of the enforcement period. We published a NPRM entitled: Safety Zone; Repair of High Voltage Transmission Lines to Logan International Airport, Saugus River, Saugus, Massachusetts, in the Federal Register (76 FR 4575) on January 26, 2011 in which we indicated that we expected to receive the repair dates during the rulemaking period and that we would publish them in the final rule. National Grid has not yet provided the Coast Guard an exact repair date due to their inability to determine the availability of the contractors performing the repair work. Thus, the Coast Guard is unable to provide the repair dates or the period in which we intend to enforce the safety zone in this Final Rule. When the exact repair dates are determined, notice of the enforcement of this safety zone to be made by all means to affect the widest publicity among the affected segments of the public, including publication of a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register, in the Local Notice to Mariners, and in the Safety Marine Information Broadcast. 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. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 19699 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. The Coast Guard determined that this rule is not a significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The safety zone will be of limited duration, is located in a waterway that has no deep draft commercial traffic and is designed to avoid, to the extent possible, fishing and recreational boating traffic routes. Persons and vessels may still enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area if they obtain permission from the COTP or the designated representative. 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 would 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 enter, transit through, moor or anchor in a portion of the Saugus River during a 48 hour enforcement period related to repairs of high voltage transmission lines to Logan Airport. This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: National Grid intends to make repairs to the high voltage transmission lines running to Logan Airport during a 48 hour period between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. This time window will allow the local lobster fishing fleet to transit to the fishing grounds and return home at night with only minor inconvenience. The local harbormasters have notified their tenants in advance of the intended repairs, thus allowing Saugus River users to plan accordingly. Vessel traffic will be allowed to pass through the zone prior to 9 a.m. and after 2 p.m. and if E:\FR\FM\08APR1.SGM 08APR1 19700 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 68 / Friday, April 8, 2011 / Rules and Regulations necessary through the zone if they first obtain permission from the COTP. Before the effective period, we will issue maritime advisories widely available to users of the river. 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. We did not receive any comments for this section. 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 rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact ST1 David Labadie at the telephone number or email address indicated under the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this notice. 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. We did not receive any comments for this section. 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 did not receive any comments for this section. wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 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 did not receive any comments for this section. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:58 Apr 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 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 did not receive any comments for this section. 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 did not receive any comments for this section. 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 did not receive any comments for this section. 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 did not receive any comments for this section. 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 did not receive any comments for this section. 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 did PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 not receive any comments for this section. 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 did not receive any comments for this section. 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 that 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)(g), of the Instruction. This rule involves the establishment of a safety zone. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Regulatory Information

    On January 26, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled: Safety Zone; Repair of High Voltage Transmission Lines 
to Logan International Airport, Saugus River, Saugus, Massachusetts, in 
the Federal Register (76 FR 4575). We received no comments on the 
proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held.

Background and Purpose

    This rule is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and workers 
from the hazards associated with work related to repairs of high 
voltage transmission lines over navigable waters. This temporary safety 
zone will be in effect during the repair of the high voltage 
transmission lines that feed Logan Airport. The safety zone will be 
enforced immediately before, during and after the start of the repairs. 
National Grid, the transmission line repair company has not specified 
the exact date repairs will commence, but they have advised the Coast 
Guard that repairs are planned for a 48 hour period in May, 2011, to 
begin each day at 9 a.m. and end at 2 p.m.
    The COTP will inform the public regarding the exact repair dates 
and details of the work covered by this safety zone using a variety of 
means, including, but not limited to, Notice of Enforcement (NOE) to be 
published in the Federal Register, Broadcast Notice to Mariners and 
Local Notice to Mariners.
    All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the 
COTP Boston or the designated on-scene representative. Entering into, 
transiting through, mooring or anchoring within the safety zone is 
prohibited unless authorized by the COTP Boston or the designated on 
scene representative. The COTP or the designated on scene 
representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16 or by telephone at 
(617) 223-5750.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    We received no comments. A change has been made to this rule 
regarding how the Coast Guard will notify the public of the enforcement 
period. We published a NPRM entitled: Safety Zone; Repair of High 
Voltage Transmission Lines to Logan International Airport, Saugus 
River, Saugus, Massachusetts, in the Federal Register (76 FR 4575) on 
January 26, 2011 in which we indicated that we expected to receive the 
repair dates during the rulemaking period and that we would publish 
them in the final rule. National Grid has not yet provided the Coast 
Guard an exact repair date due to their inability to determine the 
availability of the contractors performing the repair work. Thus, the 
Coast Guard is unable to provide the repair dates or the period in 
which we intend to enforce the safety zone in this Final Rule. When the 
exact repair dates are determined, notice of the enforcement of this 
safety zone to be made by all means to affect the widest publicity 
among the affected segments of the public, including publication of a 
Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register, in the Local Notice to 
Mariners, and in the Safety Marine Information Broadcast.

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.
    The Coast Guard determined that this rule is not a significant 
regulatory action for the following reasons: The safety zone will be of 
limited duration, is located in a waterway that has no deep draft 
commercial traffic and is designed to avoid, to the extent possible, 
fishing and recreational boating traffic routes. Persons and vessels 
may still enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the 
regulated area if they obtain permission from the COTP or the 
designated representative.

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 
would 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 enter, 
transit through, moor or anchor in a portion of the Saugus River during 
a 48 hour enforcement period related to repairs of high voltage 
transmission lines to Logan Airport.
    This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: 
National Grid intends to make repairs to the high voltage transmission 
lines running to Logan Airport during a 48 hour period between the 
hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. This time window will allow the local 
lobster fishing fleet to transit to the fishing grounds and return home 
at night with only minor inconvenience. The local harbormasters have 
notified their tenants in advance of the intended repairs, thus 
allowing Saugus River users to plan accordingly. Vessel traffic will be 
allowed to pass through the zone prior to 9 a.m. and after 2 p.m. and 
if

[[Page 19700]]

necessary through the zone if they first obtain permission from the 
COTP. Before the effective period, we will issue maritime advisories 
widely available to users of the river. 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. We did not receive any comments for this 
section.

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 rule so that they can better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule 
would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please contact ST1 David Labadie at the 
telephone number or e-mail address indicated under the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section of this notice. 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. We did not receive any 
comments for this section.

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 did not 
receive any comments for this section.

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 did not receive any comments for this section.

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 did not receive any comments for this section.

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 did not receive any comments for this section.

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 did not receive any comments 
for this section.

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 did not receive any comments for 
this section.

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 did not receive 
any comments for this section.

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 did not receive any comments for this 
section.

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 did not receive 
any comments for this section.

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 
that 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)(g), of the Instruction. This rule involves the 
establishment of a safety zone. An environmental analysis checklist and 
a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where 
indicated under ADDRESSES.
