Public Meeting We do not now plan to hold a public meeting, but you may submit a request for one by using one of the four methods specified under ADDRESSES. Please explain why you believe a public meeting would be beneficial. If we determine that one would aid this rulemaking, we will hold one at a time and place announced by a later notice in the Federal Register. Background and Purpose This proposed rule will add 33 CFR 165.9xx, Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone. Various private and public entities organize marine events within the Sault Sainte Marie Captain of the Port zone. Many of these events recur in the same location on or about the same date each year. Also, many of these events pose hazards to the public. Such hazards include obstructions to the navigable channels, explosive dangers associated with fireworks, debris falling into the water, and general congestion of waterways. To minimize these and other hazards, this proposed rule will establish twenty safety zones, each related to a specific recurring marine event. Discussion of Proposed Rule This proposed rule and its associated safety zones are necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and people during each of the annual marine events discussed below. Although this rule will remain in effect year round, the proposed safety zones will be enforced only immediately before, during, and after each corresponding event. The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie will notify the public when the safety zones in this proposal will be enforced. In keeping with 33 CFR 165.7(a), the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie will use all appropriate means to notify the affected segments of the public. This will include, as practicable, publication in the Federal Register, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and Local Notice to Mariners. The Captain of the Port will, as practicable, issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the public when any enforcement period is cancelled. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within each of the below safety zones is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie or his or her designated representative. All persons and vessels permitted to enter one of the safety zones established PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 by this proposed rule shall comply with the instructions of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the designated representative. The Captain of the Port or his or her designated representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. 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. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The safety zones created by this proposed rule will be relatively small and enforced for a relatively short time. Also, each safety zone is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. Furthermore, each safety zone has been designed to allow vessels to transit unrestricted to portions of the waterways not affected by the safety zones. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through each safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port. On the whole, the Coast Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the activation of these safety zones. 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. E:\FR\FM\18APP1.SGM 18APP1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 74 / Monday, April 18, 2011 / Proposed Rules 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. This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in any one of the below established safety zones while the safety zone is being enforced. These safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: Each safety zone in this proposed rule will be in effect for only a few hours within any given 24 hour period. Each of the safety zones, with one exception, will be in effect only once per year. Furthermore, these safety zones have been designed to allow traffic to pass safely around each zone. Moreover, vessels will be allowed to pass through each zone at the discretion of the Captain of the Port. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed 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. erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 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. 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 BMC Gregory Ford, Prevention Department, Coast Guard Sector Sault Sainte Marie, MI at (906) 635–3222. 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 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:25 Apr 15, 2011 Jkt 223001 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 will not affect the 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 proposed 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 The Coast Guard recognizes the treaty rights of Native American Tribes. Moreover, the Coast Guard is committed to working with Tribal Governments to implement local policies and to mitigate Tribal concerns. We have determined that this rule and fishing rights protection need not be incompatible. We have also determined that this proposed 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 PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 21679 Government and Indian Tribes. Nevertheless, Indian Tribes that have questions concerning the provisions of this proposed rule or options for compliance are encouraged to contact the point of contact listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. 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 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 preliminary determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. This E:\FR\FM\18APP1.SGM 18APP1 21680 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 74 / Monday, April 18, 2011 / Proposed Rules proposed rule establishes a safety zone and therefore paragraph (34)(g) of figure 2–1 applies. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule.

[Docket No. USCG-2011-0188]
RIN 1625-AA00


Safety Zones; Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in the Captain 
of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes to establish regulations requiring 
safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone. This 
proposed rule is intended to establish safety zones that will restrict 
vessels from certain portions of water areas within the Sector Sault 
Ste Marie Captain of the Port zone, as defined by our regulations. 
These proposed safety zones are necessary to protect spectators, 
participants, and vessels from the hazards associated with various 
maritime events.

Background and Purpose

    This proposed rule will add 33 CFR 165.9xx, Annual Events requiring 
safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone. 
Various private and public entities organize marine events within the 
Sault Sainte Marie Captain of the Port zone. Many of these events recur 
in the same location on or about the same date each year. Also, many of 
these events pose hazards to the public. Such hazards include 
obstructions to the navigable channels, explosive dangers associated 
with fireworks, debris falling into the water, and general congestion 
of waterways. To minimize these and other hazards, this proposed rule 
will establish twenty safety zones, each related to a specific 
recurring marine event.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    This proposed rule and its associated safety zones are necessary to 
ensure the safety of vessels and people during each of the annual 
marine events discussed below.
    Although this rule will remain in effect year round, the proposed 
safety zones will be enforced only immediately before, during, and 
after each corresponding event.
    The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie will notify the public 
when the safety zones in this proposal will be enforced. In keeping 
with 33 CFR 165.7(a), the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie will 
use all appropriate means to notify the affected segments of the 
public. This will include, as practicable, publication in the Federal 
Register, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and Local Notice to Mariners. 
The Captain of the Port will, as practicable, issue a Broadcast Notice 
to Mariners notifying the public when any enforcement period is 
cancelled.
    Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within each of the below 
safety zones is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port 
Sault Sainte Marie or his or her designated representative. All persons 
and vessels permitted to enter one of the safety zones established by 
this proposed rule shall comply with the instructions of the Coast 
Guard Captain of the Port or the designated representative. The Captain 
of the Port or his or her designated representative may be contacted 
via VHF Channel 16.

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. It is not ``significant'' 
under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of 
Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this proposed rule is not a 
significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have 
minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, 
will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, 
and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The safety zones 
created by this proposed rule will be relatively small and enforced for 
a relatively short time. Also, each safety zone is designed to minimize 
its impact on navigable waters. Furthermore, each safety zone has been 
designed to allow vessels to transit unrestricted to portions of the 
waterways not affected by the safety zones. Thus, restrictions on 
vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. 
Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through 
each safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port. On the 
whole, the Coast Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners 
from the activation of these safety zones.

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.

[[Page 21679]]

    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. This proposed rule would affect the following 
entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners and 
operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in any one of the 
below established safety zones while the safety zone is being enforced. 
These safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: Each 
safety zone in this proposed rule will be in effect for only a few 
hours within any given 24 hour period. Each of the safety zones, with 
one exception, will be in effect only once per year. Furthermore, these 
safety zones have been designed to allow traffic to pass safely around 
each zone. Moreover, vessels will be allowed to pass through each zone 
at the discretion of the Captain of the Port.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed 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. 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 BMC Gregory Ford, Prevention 
Department, Coast Guard Sector Sault Sainte Marie, MI at (906) 635-
3222. 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 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 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 will not affect the 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 proposed 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

    The Coast Guard recognizes the treaty rights of Native American 
Tribes. Moreover, the Coast Guard is committed to working with Tribal 
Governments to implement local policies and to mitigate Tribal 
concerns. We have determined that this rule and fishing rights 
protection need not be incompatible. We have also determined that this 
proposed 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. Nevertheless, Indian 
Tribes that have questions concerning the provisions of this proposed 
rule or options for compliance are encouraged to contact the point of 
contact listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

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 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 preliminary determination is available in the 
docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. This

[[Page 21680]]

proposed rule establishes a safety zone and therefore paragraph (34)(g) 
of figure 2-1 applies. We seek any comments or information that may 
lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this 
proposed rule.
