Notice of enforcement of regulation. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard will enforce the Special Local Regulation, Hydroplane Races within the Captain of the Port Puget Sound Area of Responsibility for the Tastin’ n’ Racin’ hydroplane event in Lake Sammamish, WA from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. on June 11, 2011 and from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. on June 12, 2011. This action is necessary to restrict vessel movement in the vicinity of the race courses thereby ensuring the safety of participants and spectators during these events. During the enforcement period non-participant vessels are prohibited from entering the designated race areas. Spectator craft entering, exiting or moving within the spectator area must operate at speeds which will create a minimum wake. DATES: The regulations in 33 CFR 100.1308 will be enforced from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. on June 11, 2011 and from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. on June 12, 2011.

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is providing notice of enforcement of the Special Local Regulation for Hydroplane Races within the Captain of the Port Puget Sound Area of Responsibility 33 CFR 100.1308. The Lake Sammamish area, 33 CFR 100.1308(a)(3) will be enforced on June 11, 2011, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on June 12, 2011 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. These regulations can be found in the March 29, 2011 issue of the Federal Register (76 FR 17341). Under the provisions of 33 CFR 100.1308, the regulated area shall be closed for the duration of the event to all vessel traffic not participating in the event and authorized by the event sponsor or Coast Guard Patrol Commander. 23185 When this special local regulation is enforced, non-participant vessels are prohibited from entering the designated race areas unless authorized by the designated on-scene Patrol Commander. Spectator craft may remain in designated spectator areas but must follow the directions of the designated on-scene Patrol Commander. The event sponsor may also function as the designated on-scene Patrol Commander. Spectator craft entering, exiting or moving within the spectator area must operate at speeds which will create a minimum wake. Emergency Signaling: A succession of sharp, short signals by whistle or horn from vessels patrolling the areas under the discretion of the designated onscene Patrol Commander shall serve as a signal to stop. Vessels signaled shall stop and shall comply with the orders of the patrol vessel. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both. This notice is issued under authority of 33 CFR 100.1308 and 5 U.S.C. 552(a). In addition to this notice in the Federal Register, the Coast Guard will provide the maritime community with advance notification of this enforcement period via the Local Notice to Mariners. If the Captain of the Port determines that the regulated area need not be enforced for the full duration stated in this notice, he may use a Broadcast Notice to Mariners to grant general permission to enter the regulated area.

According to the draw tender logs for the past three years, furnished by MdTA, there have been few to no requests for bridge openings from October 1 to April 30, between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. By providing notice to the bridge tender before 6 p.m., mariners can plan their transits and minimize delay in accordance with the proposed rule. The majority of the waterway traffic at this bridge site is seasonal recreational boaters. October 1 through April 30 is considered out-ofseason and has minimal waterway traffic. The current regulation, set out in 33 CFR 117.559, locates this waterway as Isle of Wight Bay, mile 0.5, at Ocean City, MD. Local mariners refer to this waterway location as both the Isle of Wight Bay and the Sinepuxent Bay. To clarify any confusion mariners may have, this waterway location will be cited as Isle of Wight (Sinepuxent) Bay, mile 0.5, at Ocean City, MD in the Federal Register. Regulatory Information On December 9, 2010, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Drawbridge Operation Regulation: Isle of Wight (Sinepuxent) Bay, Ocean City, MD in the Federal Register (75 FR 236). We received no comments on the proposed rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion of Comments and Changes No comments were received on the proposed rule and no changes were made to the proposed rule. Basis and Purpose The Maryland Department of Transportation (MdTA) has requested a change to the operating procedure for the double-leaf bascule US 50 Bridge. This change would require that the draw shall open on signal; except that, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., from October 1 to April 30 of every year, the draw shall open on signal if notice is given to the bridge tender before 6 p.m. The current regulation, set out in 33 CFR 117.559, requires that the US 50 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:06 Apr 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 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 changes are expected to have minimal impact on maritime traffic PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 transiting the bridge. Mariners can plan their trips in accordance with the scheduled bridge openings to minimize delays. 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 will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels needing to transit through the bridge from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. from October 1 to April 30. This action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because the rule adds minimal restrictions to the movement of navigation, by requiring mariners from October 1 to April 30, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., to give notice to the bridge tender before 6 p.m. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), in the NPRM we offered to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they could better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of E:\FR\FM\26APR1.SGM 26APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 80 / Tuesday, April 26, 2011 / Rules and Regulations their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with RULES Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:06 Apr 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guides 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 which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction, an environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for this rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory Information

    On December 9, 2010, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled Drawbridge Operation Regulation: Isle of Wight 
(Sinepuxent) Bay, Ocean City, MD in the Federal Register (75 FR 236). 
We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was 
requested, and none was held.

Basis and Purpose

    The Maryland Department of Transportation (MdTA) has requested a 
change to the operating procedure for the double-leaf bascule US 50 
Bridge. This change would require that the draw shall open on signal; 
except that, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., from October 1 to April 30 of every 
year, the draw shall open on signal if notice is given to the bridge 
tender before 6 p.m.
    The current regulation, set out in 33 CFR 117.559, requires that 
the US 50 Bridge over Isle of Wight (Sinepuxent) Bay, mile 0.5, at 
Ocean City, with a vertical clearance of 13 feet above mean high tide 
in the closed position, shall open on signal; except from October 1 
through April 30 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., the draw shall open if at least 
three hours notice is given and from May 25 through September 15, from 
9:25 a.m. to 9:55 p.m., the draw shall open at 25 minutes after and 55 
minutes after the hour for a maximum of five minutes to let accumulated 
vessels pass, except that, on Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., the draw 
shall open on the hour for all waiting vessels and shall remain in the 
open position until all waiting vessels pass.
    According to the draw tender logs for the past three years, 
furnished by MdTA, there have been few to no requests for bridge 
openings from October 1 to April 30, between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 
a.m. By providing notice to the bridge tender before 6 p.m., mariners 
can plan their transits and minimize delay in accordance with the 
proposed rule. The majority of the waterway traffic at this bridge site 
is seasonal recreational boaters. October 1 through April 30 is 
considered out-of-season and has minimal waterway traffic.
    The current regulation, set out in 33 CFR 117.559, locates this 
waterway as Isle of Wight Bay, mile 0.5, at Ocean City, MD. Local 
mariners refer to this waterway location as both the Isle of Wight Bay 
and the Sinepuxent Bay. To clarify any confusion mariners may have, 
this waterway location will be cited as Isle of Wight (Sinepuxent) Bay, 
mile 0.5, at Ocean City, MD in the Federal Register.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    No comments were received on the proposed rule and no changes were 
made to the proposed rule.

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 changes are expected to have minimal 
impact on maritime traffic transiting the bridge. Mariners can plan 
their trips in accordance with the scheduled bridge openings to 
minimize delays.

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 will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.
    This rule will affect the following entities, some of which might 
be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels needing to 
transit through the bridge from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. from October 1 to 
April 30. This action will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities because the rule adds minimal 
restrictions to the movement of navigation, by requiring mariners from 
October 1 to April 30, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., to give notice to the 
bridge tender before 6 p.m.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), in the NPRM we offered to 
assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they could 
better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking 
process.

Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of

[[Page 23187]]

their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act 
addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, 
or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of 
$100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though 
this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the 
effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and would not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under Executive Order 13211.

Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or 
operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management 
systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus 
standards bodies.
    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guides 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 which do not 
individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human 
environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, 
paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction.
    Under figure 2-1, paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction, an 
environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are not required for this rule.
