ADDRESSES: Issued in Washington, DC, on May 23, 2011. J. Randolph Babbitt, Administrator. Regulatory Information On April 20, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). We received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest because it would inhibit the Coast Guard from ensuring the safety of vessels and the public during the fireworks display.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: From June 21, 2011 through June 24, 2011, the Michigan Bankers Association’s will celebrate its 125th anniversary. The celebration will take place on and around Mackinac Island. On the evening of June 23, 2011, the celebration will include a fireworks display to be launched from a water location. The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie has determined that the fireworks event poses various hazards to the public, including obstructions to the navigable channel, explosive dangers associated with fireworks, and debris falling into the water. To minimize PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 these and other hazards, this rule will establish a temporary safety zone around the fireworks display. Discussion of Comments and Changes The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on this 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. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). 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 zone created by this rule will be relatively small and enforced for relatively short time. Also, the safety zone is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. Furthermore, the safety zone has been designed to allow vessels to transit around it. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port. 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. On April 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed E:\FR\FM\08JNR1.SGM 08JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 110 / Wednesday, June 8, 2011 / Rules and Regulations rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 the area of the safety zone while it is being enforced. The safety zone will be in effect only for a short time. Furthermore, the safety zone has been designed to allow traffic to pass safely around it. Moreover, vessels will be allowed to pass through the 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 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). srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:41 Jun 07, 2011 Jkt 223001 more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of it elsewhere in this preamble. On April 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed. 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 33153 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 E:\FR\FM\08JNR1.SGM 08JNR1 33154 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 110 / Wednesday, June 8, 2011 / Rules and Regulations 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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. This rule involves the establishment of a safety zone. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Regulatory Information

    On April 20, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, 
Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 
22064). We received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed 
rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause 
exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of 
this rule would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest 
because it would inhibit the Coast Guard from ensuring the safety of 
vessels and the public during the fireworks display.

Background and Purpose

    From June 21, 2011 through June 24, 2011, the Michigan Bankers 
Association's will celebrate its 125th anniversary. The celebration 
will take place on and around Mackinac Island. On the evening of June 
23, 2011, the celebration will include a fireworks display to be 
launched from a water location. The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte 
Marie has determined that the fireworks event poses various hazards to 
the public, including obstructions to the navigable channel, explosive 
dangers associated with fireworks, and debris falling into the water. 
To minimize these and other hazards, this rule will establish a 
temporary safety zone around the fireworks display.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on this 
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. It is not ``significant'' under the 
regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland 
Security (DHS). 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 zone created by 
this rule will be relatively small and enforced for relatively short 
time. Also, the safety zone is designed to minimize its impact on 
navigable waters. Furthermore, the safety zone has been designed to 
allow vessels to transit around it. Thus, restrictions on vessel 
movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under 
certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the 
safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port.

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. On April 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of 
proposed

[[Page 33153]]

rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association 
Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal 
Register (76 FR 22064). 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 the 
area of the safety zone while it is being enforced. The safety zone 
will be in effect only for a short time. Furthermore, the safety zone 
has been designed to allow traffic to pass safely around it. Moreover, 
vessels will be allowed to pass through the 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 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. On April 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers 
Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the 
Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 it elsewhere in this 
preamble. On April 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers 
Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the 
Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard published a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers 
Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the 
Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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 20, 2011, the Coast 
Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety 
Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac 
Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). The Coast 
Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on the proposed rule. 
There have been no changes made to the rule as proposed.

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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard 
published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone;

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 20, 2011, 
the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake 
Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 
22064). 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 20, 2011, the Coast Guard 
published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zone; 
Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake Huron, Mackinac Island, 
Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 22064). 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

[[Page 33154]]

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 20, 2011, 
the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
entitled Safety Zone; Michigan Bankers Association Fireworks, Lake 
Huron, Mackinac Island, Michigan, in the Federal Register (76 FR 
22064). 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. This rule involves the establishment of a safety zone. 
An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.
