SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information On May 24, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Special Local Regulations for Marine Events; Lake Gaston, Enterprise, North Carolina in the Federal Register (76 FR 30069). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held.

The swim event will consist of approximately 200 swimmers entering Lake Gaston at the Morning Star Marina on the north bank of Lake Gaston, east of the Eaton Ferry Bridge, and swimming south along the eastern side of the Eaton Ferry Bridge to the Waterview Restaurant.

In an effort to enhance safety of event participants the channel in the vicinity of Eaton Ferry Bridge will remain closed during event on August 13, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m (noon) The Coast Guard will temporarily restrict access to this section of Lake Gaston during the event. Discussion of Comments and Changes We received no comments in this rulemaking, and no changes have been made in response to comments. 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, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that those Orders. Although this regulation will restrict access to this portion of Lake Gaston, the effect of this rule will not be significant because the regulated area will be in effect for a limited time, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m (noon), on August 13, 2011. The Coast Guard will give advance notification via maritime advisories so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly, and the regulated area will apply only to the section of Lake Gaston in the immediate vicinity of the Eaton Ferry Bridge. Coast Guard vessels enforcing this regulated area can be contacted on marine band radio VHF–FM channel 16 (156.8 MHz). wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:26 Jul 06, 2011 Jkt 223001 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 may be small entities: The owners or operators of recreational vessels intending to transit the specified portion of Lake Gaston from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m (noon) on August 13, 2011. This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This rule will only be in effect for 3 and one-half hours from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m (noon) The regulated area applies only to the section of Lake Gaston in the vicinity of the Eaton Ferry Bridge and traffic may be allowed to pass through the regulated area with the permission of the Coast Guard Patrol Commander. In the case where the Patrol Commander authorizes passage through the regulated area, vessels shall proceed at the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course that minimizes wake near the swim course. The Patrol Commander will allow nonparticipating vessels to transit the event area once all swimmers are safely clear of navigation channels and vessel traffic areas. Before the enforcement period, we will issue maritime advisories so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. 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. employees of the Coast Guard, call 1–888–REG–FAIR (1–888–734–3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question of complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 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. Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency’s responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by Civil Justice Reform PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 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. 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 does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination E:\FR\FM\07JYR1.SGM 07JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 130 / Thursday, July 7, 2011 / Rules and Regulations 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. wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with RULES_PART 1 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 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 which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction. This rule involves implementation of regulations VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:26 Jul 06, 2011 Jkt 223001 within 33 CFR Part 100 that apply to organized marine events on the navigable waters of the United States that may have potential for negative impact on the safety or other interest of waterway users and shore side activities in the event area. This special local regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of the general public and event participants from potential hazards associated with movement of vessels near the event area. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:



Regulatory Information



    On May 24, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 

(NPRM) entitled Special Local Regulations for Marine Events; Lake 

Gaston, Enterprise, North Carolina in the Federal Register (76 FR 

30069). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting 

was requested, and none was held.



Background and Purpose



    On August 13, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m (noon) the Organization 

to Support the Arts, Infrastructure, and Learning on Lake Gaston, also 

known as O'SAIL, will sponsor ``The Crossing'' on the waters of Lake 

Gaston, adjacent to Enterprise, North Carolina. The swim event will 

consist of approximately 200 swimmers entering Lake Gaston at the 

Morning Star Marina on the north bank of Lake Gaston, east of the Eaton 

Ferry Bridge, and swimming south along the eastern side of the Eaton 

Ferry Bridge to the Waterview Restaurant. A fleet of spectator vessels 

are expected to gather near the event site to view the competition. To 

provide for the safety of



[[Page 39772]]



participants, spectators and transiting vessels, the Coast Guard will 

temporarily restrict vessel traffic in the regulated area during this 

event.

    In an effort to enhance safety of event participants the channel in 

the vicinity of Eaton Ferry Bridge will remain closed during event on 

August 13, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m (noon) The Coast Guard will 

temporarily restrict access to this section of Lake Gaston during the 

event.



Discussion of Comments and Changes



    We received no comments in this rulemaking, and no changes have 

been made in response to comments.



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, as 

supplemented by Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and 

Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential 

costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Executive Order 12866 

or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management 

and Budget has not reviewed it under that those Orders.

    Although this regulation will restrict access to this portion of 

Lake Gaston, the effect of this rule will not be significant because 

the regulated area will be in effect for a limited time, from 8:30 a.m. 

to 12 p.m (noon), on August 13, 2011. The Coast Guard will give advance 

notification via maritime advisories so mariners can adjust their plans 

accordingly, and the regulated area will apply only to the section of 

Lake Gaston in the immediate vicinity of the Eaton Ferry Bridge. Coast 

Guard vessels enforcing this regulated area can be contacted on marine 

band radio VHF-FM channel 16 (156.8 MHz).



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 

may be small entities: The owners or operators of recreational vessels 

intending to transit the specified portion of Lake Gaston from 8:30 

a.m. to 12 p.m (noon) on August 13, 2011.

    This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 

substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This 

rule will only be in effect for 3 and one-half hours from 8:30 a.m. to 

12 p.m (noon) The regulated area applies only to the section of Lake 

Gaston in the vicinity of the Eaton Ferry Bridge and traffic may be 

allowed to pass through the regulated area with the permission of the 

Coast Guard Patrol Commander. In the case where the Patrol Commander 

authorizes passage through the regulated area, vessels shall proceed at 

the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course that minimizes 

wake near the swim course. The Patrol Commander will allow non-

participating vessels to transit the event area once all swimmers are 

safely clear of navigation channels and vessel traffic areas. Before 

the enforcement period, we will issue maritime advisories so mariners 

can adjust their plans accordingly.

    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), 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.

    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 

employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal 

regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory 

Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory 

Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and 

rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to 

comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR 

(1-888-734-3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 

entities that question of complain about this rule or any policy or 

action of the Coast Guard.



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 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 does not create an 

environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 

disproportionately affect children.



Indian Tribal Governments



    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 

13175, Consultation and Coordination



[[Page 39773]]



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 

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 which do not individually 

or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. 

This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph 

(34)(h), of the Instruction. This rule involves implementation of 

regulations within 33 CFR Part 100 that apply to organized marine 

events on the navigable waters of the United States that may have 

potential for negative impact on the safety or other interest of 

waterway users and shore side activities in the event area. This 

special local regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of the 

general public and event participants from potential hazards associated 

with movement of vessels near the event area. An environmental analysis 

checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in 

the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.
