Inc., on behalf of Delaware Department of Transportation, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulation of the SR 13 Bridge across the Nanticoke River, mile 39.6, at Seaford, DE. The requested deviation is to accommodate painting and cleaning of the bridge. The vertical clearance of this single-leaf bascule bridge is three feet at mean high water (MHW) in the closed position and unlimited in the open position. During this deviation period, the vertical clearance will be limited to one foot at MHW due to the scaffolding that will be used for the maintenance of the bridge. Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. the bridge is able to open if at least four hours of notice is given and from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. the bridge will be left in the closed-to-navigation position. On Saturdays and Sundays and on July 4, 2011 the bridge will be left in the open position and vessels will be able to pass through at any time. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies if at least four hours of notice is given. There are no alternate routes available to vessels. The current operating schedule for the bridge is set out in 33 CFR 117.243(b). In the months of June and July the regulation requires the bridge to open on signal, except from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m., if at least four hours notice is given. Logs from June and July 2010 have shown that most of the openings were on the weekends and on July 4th and all of the openings were between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. This deviation will have no impact for mariners traveling through the bridge on the weekends and on July 4th because the bridge will be left in the open position on these days. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:10 Jun 01, 2011 Jkt 223001 Mariners transiting through the bridge on weekdays should have minimal delay given that the bridge can open for vessels if at least four hours notice is given. The majority of the vessel traffic is recreational boaters. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners so that mariners can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. The Coast Guard will also require the bridge owner to post signs on either side of the bridge notifying mariners of the temporary regulation change. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: May 23, 2011. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information On April 18, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). We received 0 public submissions commenting on this rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. Background and Purpose This rule will add 33 CFR 165.918 Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone. Many of these events recur in the same location on or about the same date each year. Also, these events pose hazards to the public. Such hazards include obstructions to navigable channels, explosive dangers associated with fireworks, debris falling into the water, and general congestion of waterways. To minimize these and other hazards, this rule will establish twenty safety zones, each related to a specific recurring marine event. Discussion of Comments and Changes The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on this rule. Discussion of Rule This rule and its associated safety zones are necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and people during each of the annual marine events discussed herein. Although this rule will remain in effect year round, the 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 these safety zones 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 E:\FR\FM\02JNR1.SGM 02JNR1 31840 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 106 / Thursday, June 2, 2011 / Rules and Regulations segments of the public. This will include, as practicable, 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 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. jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. We conclude that this 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 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 any 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 rule would have a VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:10 Jun 01, 2011 Jkt 223001 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the impact to small entities by this rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. This 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. 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. 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 can 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. 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 an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. E:\FR\FM\02JNR1.SGM 02JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 106 / Thursday, June 2, 2011 / Rules and Regulations 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:10 Jun 01, 2011 Jkt 223001 Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. 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 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 because it involves the establishment of a safety zone. A final environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory Information

    On April 18, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in 
the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal 
Register (76 FR 21677). We received 0 public submissions commenting on 
this rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held.

Background and Purpose

    This rule will add 33 CFR 165.918 Safety Zones; Annual Events 
requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie 
zone. Many of these events recur in the same location on or about the 
same date each year. Also, these events pose hazards to the public. 
Such hazards include obstructions to navigable channels, explosive 
dangers associated with fireworks, debris falling into the water, and 
general congestion of waterways. To minimize these and other hazards, 
this rule will establish twenty safety zones, each related to a 
specific recurring marine event.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on this 
rule.

Discussion of Rule

    This rule and its associated safety zones are necessary to ensure 
the safety of vessels and people during each of the annual marine 
events discussed herein. Although this rule will remain in effect year 
round, the 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 these safety zones 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

[[Page 31840]]

segments of the public. This will include, as practicable, 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 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 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. We conclude that this 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 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 any 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 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events 
requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie 
zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 
public submissions commenting on the impact to small entities by this 
rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. This 
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. 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.

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 can 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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events 
requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie 
zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 
public submissions commenting on the proposed rule.

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 an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events 
requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie 
zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 
public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no 
changes made to the rule as proposed.

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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events 
requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie 
zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 
public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no 
changes made to the rule as proposed.

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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast 
Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety 
Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port 
Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The 
Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed 
rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed.

[[Page 31841]]

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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard 
published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; 
Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault 
Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast 
Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. 
There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed.

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. On April 18, 2011, 
the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the 
Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register 
(76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting 
on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as 
proposed.

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. On April 18, 2011, the Coast Guard 
published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; 
Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault 
Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). The Coast 
Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. 
There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed.

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. On April 18, 2011, 
the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the 
Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register 
(76 FR 21677). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting 
on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as 
proposed.

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 
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 because it involves the establishment of a safety zone. 
A final environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.
