Basis and Purpose Firework displays are held annually on a recurring basis on the navigable waters within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. Many of the annual firework events requiring safety zones do not currently reflect changes in actual dates and other required information. These safety zones are necessary to provide for the safety of the crew, spectators, participants of the event, participating vessels, and other users and vessels of the waterway from the hazards associated with firework displays. This proposed rule will also provide the public current information on safety zone locations, size, and length of time the zones will be active. The effect of these proposed safety zones will be to restrict general navigation in the vicinity of the events, PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 30585 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 firework displays to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and transiting vessels. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on February 9, 2011 entitled ‘‘Safety Zones; Eleventh Coast Guard District Annual Fireworks Events’’ in the Federal Register (76 FR 7131). We did not receive any comments on the proposed rule and did not receive any requests for a public meeting. A public meeting was not held. The NPRM published for this regulation proposed establishing safety zones for new annual fireworks events occurring in two Southern California Captain of the Port Zones (COTP) and on the Colorado River between Davis Dam (Bullhead City, Arizona) and Headgate Dam (Parker, Arizona), and also proposed to update existing safety zones to reflect current information on annual firework displays occurring within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. The Coast Guard proposes to delete the limiting descriptor ‘‘commercial’’ as applied to vessels being allowed to transit through the regulated areas when permitted by PATCOM in 33 CFR 165.1123(b)(4); and 165.1124(b)(4). Often the PATCOM will allow all queued vessels to transit through a zone; for example during a long break in a race. The Coast Guard also proposes to revise the text of 100.1123(b)(3); and 100.1124(b)(3) to delete reference to the Patrol Commander (PATCOM) being located on the lead official patrol vessel. Often the PATCOM is located shoreside in a location that offers a better vantage point to monitor the event. The location of the PATCOM may also be dictated by radio communication requirements, or a need to be co-located with local law enforcement representatives. Additionally, the Coast Guard proposes to change the dates for the Mission Bay 4th of July Fireworks and the Coronado, California Fireworks Display from a specific date to a range of dates (‘‘the first week in July’’). Due to the day of the week on which the 4th of July falls, these are not always the desired dates. The Coast Guard also proposes to change the date of the San Diego Parade of Lights Fireworks E:\FR\FM\26MYP1.SGM 26MYP1 30586 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 102 / Thursday, May 26, 2011 / Proposed Rules Display from ‘‘late December’’ to ‘‘December’’ to allow for required scheduling flexibility when activating the safety zone. For administrative efficiency and to avoid potential problems, the Coast Guard proposed to amend Table 1 to § 165.1123 to reflect these changes. Finally, the proposed title of 33 CFR 165.1124 will be revised to clearly indicate the safety zones are located in the San Diego COTP. 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. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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. Furthermore, 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: Owners and operators of vessels intending to fish, sightsee, transit, or anchor in the waters affected by these safety zones. These regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:50 May 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 several 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 the safety zone 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. 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. 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 Lieutenant Junior Grade 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. 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. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 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 E:\FR\FM\26MYP1.SGM 26MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 102 / Thursday, May 26, 2011 / Proposed Rules 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 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.

Proposed rule. AGENCY: ACTION: This document proposes to amend the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) ‘‘Payment or Reimbursement for Emergency Services for Nonservice-Connected Conditions in Non-VA Facilities’’ regulations to conform with changes made by certain sections of the Expansion of Veteran Eligibility for Reimbursement Act. Some of the revisions in this proposed rule are purely technical, matching the language of our regulations to the language of the revised statute, while others set out VA’s policies regarding the implementation of statutory requirements. The proposed rule would expand the qualifications for payment or reimbursement to veterans who receive emergency services in non-VA facilities, and would establish accompanying standards for the method and amount of payment or reimbursement. SUMMARY: Comments on the proposed rule must be received by VA on or before July 25, 2011. ADDRESSES: Written comments may be submitted through http:// www.Regulations.gov; by mail or handdelivery to the Director, Regulations Management (02REG), Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Room 1068, Washington, DC 20420; or by fax to (202) 273–9026. Comments should indicate that they are submitted in response to ‘‘RIN 2900– AN86—Payment or Reimbursement of Emergency Services for NonserviceConnected Conditions in Non-VA Facilities.’’ Copies of comments received will be available for public inspection in the Office of Regulation Policy and Management, Room 1063B, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except holidays).

(This is not a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 1, 2010, Congress enacted the Expansion of Veteran Eligibility for Reimbursement Act (2010 Act), amending 38 U.S.C. 1725. Current VA regulations implement section 1725 in 38 CFR 17.1000 through 17.1008 under the undesignated heading ‘‘Payment or Reimbursement for Emergency Services for NonserviceConnected Conditions in Non-VA Facilities.’’ This proposed rule would revise §§ 17.1001, 17.1002, 17.1004, and 17.1005. These revisions would eliminate certain exclusions from emergency care payment or reimbursement, and define the payment limitations for those qualifying for payment or reimbursement under the law as amended by the 2010 Act. The 2010 Act amended 38 U.S.C. 1725 by removing a provision that included automobile insurance carriers in the definition of ‘‘health-plan contract.’’ Under 38 U.S.C. 1725, veterans who are covered by a healthplan contract are ineligible for VA payment or reimbursement. Thus, we propose to remove current 38 CFR 17.1001(a)(5), which includes automobile insurance in the definition of ‘‘health-plan contract.’’ These proposed amendments would implement VA’s authority to pay or reimburse claimants for providing emergency services to a veteran if the veteran received, or is legally eligible to receive, partial payment towards emergency services from an automobile insurer. The 2010 Act also amended 38 U.S.C. 1725 by removing a provision that precluded certain claimants from payment or reimbursement by VA for emergency care at non-VA facilities. Parties who qualified as claimants under former section 1725 (as implemented by VA in current 38 CFR 17.1004(a)) included veterans, the provider of the emergency treatment, or the person or organization that paid for such treatment on behalf of the veteran. PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Under the 2010 Act, claimants who are entitled to partial payment from a third party for providing non-VA emergency services to a veteran are no longer barred from also receiving VA payment or reimbursement for such care. Prior to the 2010 Act, section 1725 required that VA deny any claim in which a veteran has ‘‘other contractual or legal recourse against a third party that would, in whole or in part, extinguish such liability to the provider.’’ The 2010 Act removed ‘‘or in part’’ from this exclusion. In order to remove this partial payment exclusion from VA regulations, we propose to remove the clause, ‘‘or in part’’, from § 17.1002(h), to parallel the language in 38 U.S.C. 1725. In addition, the 2010 Act authorized, but did not require, VA to provide repayment under section 1725 ‘‘for emergency treatment furnished to a veteran before the date of the enactment of th[e 2010] Act, if the Secretary determines that, under the circumstances applicable with respect to the veteran, it is appropriate to do so.’’ We interpret this provision to allow VA, through regulation, to provide retroactive reimbursement, and we propose to implement this authority in § 17.1004(f). Under current § 17.1004(d), claims for reimbursement must be filed within 90 days after the latest of four dates: (1) July 19, 2001 (the effective date of § 17.1004(d) when VA first promulgated the regulation); (2) the date that the veteran was discharged from the facility that provided the emergency treatment; (3) the date of the veteran’s death (under specified circumstances); or (4) the date that the veteran finally exhausted, without success, action to obtain reimbursement from a third party. A retroactive claim under proposed § 17.1004(f) would be an exception to this rule. Moreover, the first requirement in current § 17.1004(d)(1)— that claims must be filed within the 90day period after July 19, 2001—is an outdated provision because all claims now received by VHA for reimbursement must, as a practical matter, be filed many years after July 19, 2001. Therefore, we propose to remove § 17.1004(d)(1). Because proposed § 17.1004(f) would authorize reimbursement for a claim that does not meet the generally applicable criteria in § 17.1004(d), we would make the provision apply ‘‘[n]otwithstanding paragraph (d)’’. We would also require that the emergency treatment was received on or after July 19, 2001. We use this date from current § 17.1004(d)(1) because there is no indication in the language or history of the 2010 Act that Congress intended a E:\FR\FM\26MYP1.SGM 26MYP1

Basis and Purpose

    Firework displays are held annually on a recurring basis on the 
navigable waters within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. Many of the 
annual firework events requiring safety zones do not currently reflect 
changes in actual dates and other required information. These safety 
zones are necessary to provide for the safety of the crew, spectators, 
participants of the event, participating vessels, and other users and 
vessels of the waterway from the hazards associated with firework 
displays. This proposed rule will also provide the public current 
information on safety zone locations, size, and length of time the 
zones will be active.
    The effect of these proposed safety zones 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 
firework displays to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and 
transiting vessels.

Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on 
February 9, 2011 entitled ``Safety Zones; Eleventh Coast Guard District 
Annual Fireworks Events'' in the Federal Register (76 FR 7131). We did 
not receive any comments on the proposed rule and did not receive any 
requests for a public meeting. A public meeting was not held. The NPRM 
published for this regulation proposed establishing safety zones for 
new annual fireworks events occurring in two Southern California 
Captain of the Port Zones (COTP) and on the Colorado River between 
Davis Dam (Bullhead City, Arizona) and Headgate Dam (Parker, Arizona), 
and also proposed to update existing safety zones to reflect current 
information on annual firework displays occurring within the Eleventh 
Coast Guard District.
    The Coast Guard proposes to delete the limiting descriptor 
``commercial'' as applied to vessels being allowed to transit through 
the regulated areas when permitted by PATCOM in 33 CFR 165.1123(b)(4); 
and 165.1124(b)(4). Often the PATCOM will allow all queued vessels to 
transit through a zone; for example during a long break in a race. The 
Coast Guard also proposes to revise the text of 100.1123(b)(3); and 
100.1124(b)(3) to delete reference to the Patrol Commander (PATCOM) 
being located on the lead official patrol vessel. Often the PATCOM is 
located shoreside in a location that offers a better vantage point to 
monitor the event. The location of the PATCOM may also be dictated by 
radio communication requirements, or a need to be co-located with local 
law enforcement representatives.
    Additionally, the Coast Guard proposes to change the dates for the 
Mission Bay 4th of July Fireworks and the Coronado, California 
Fireworks Display from a specific date to a range of dates (``the first 
week in July''). Due to the day of the week on which the 4th of July 
falls, these are not always the desired dates. The Coast Guard also 
proposes to change the date of the San Diego Parade of Lights Fireworks

[[Page 30586]]

Display from ``late December'' to ``December'' to allow for required 
scheduling flexibility when activating the safety zone. For 
administrative efficiency and to avoid potential problems, the Coast 
Guard proposed to amend Table 1 to Sec.  165.1123 to reflect these 
changes. Finally, the proposed title of 33 CFR 165.1124 will be revised 
to clearly indicate the safety zones are located in the San Diego COTP.

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. 
Furthermore, 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: Owners and 
operators of vessels intending to fish, sightsee, transit, or anchor in 
the waters affected by these safety zones. These regulations will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities for several 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 the safety zone 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. 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 Junior Grade 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.

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

[[Page 30587]]

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
