SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Regulatory Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because any delay encountered in this regulation’s effective date by publishing a NPRM would be contrary to public interest since immediate action is needed to provide for the safety of life and property on navigable waters from the hazardous nature of fireworks including unexpected detonation and burning debris. We spoke with each event sponsor and each indicated they were unable and unwilling to move their event date to a later time for the following reasons. Sponsors for Sag Harbor, Mason’s Island Yacht Club, Lawrence Beach Club, Cancer Center for Kids, Barnum Festival, Devon Yacht Club, Independence Day Celebration, Go 4th on the Bay, Dolan Family Fourth, PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 34855 City of Long Beach, Shelter Island, Point O’Woods Fire Company, South Bay Go 4th on the Bay Davis Park, North Bay Go 4th on the Bay, and Montauk Yacht Club Independence Day fireworks displays stated they are unwilling to reschedule these events because they are held in conjunction with the Fourth of July holiday and various holiday festivities. Many community members have made holiday plans based on these fireworks events, changing the date would cause numerous cancelations and hurt small businesses. Rescheduling would not be a viable option because most event venues, entertainers and venders have fully booked summer schedules making rescheduling nearly impossible. These fireworks displays are all reoccurring marine events with a proposed permanent rule currently in a public comment period under docket number USCG–2008–0384 titled, Special Local Regulations; Safety and Security Zones; Recurring Events in Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone. Additionally, the Coast Guard has ordered safety zones or special local regulations for all of these areas for past events and has not received public comments or concerns regarding the impact to waterway traffic from those events. The sponsor of the Claim Shell Foundation Fireworks stated they are unwilling to reschedule their event due to other activities being held in conjunction with their fireworks display, including a large community fund raising festival and many festivals put on by local small businesses. Many community members have made plans based on these events and changing the date would cause numerous cancelations and hurt small businesses. This event is a reoccurring marine events with a proposed permanent rule currently in a public comment period under docket number USCG–2008–0384 titled, Special Local Regulations; Safety and Security Zones; Recurring Events in Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone. Additionally, the Coast Guard has ordered safety zones or special local regulations for this area for past events and has not received public comments or concerns regarding the impact to waterway traffic from events. The sponsor for the Chezzam Entertainment Group Fireworks was not aware of the requirements for submitting a marine event application 135 days in advance resulting in a late notification to the Coast Guard. The sponsor is now aware of this for future events. It is not viable for the sponsor to reschedule the event due to other activities being held in conjunction with their fireworks display, including a E:\FR\FM\15JNR1.SGM 15JNR1
