SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 publishing a NPRM would be contrary to public interest due to the amount of notification received by the Coast Guard and the contractually imposed timeline for the installation of flood control structures/barriers. The Coast Guard received notice of the installation timeline in late May and promptly completed its required review and approval of the plan in June, leaving insufficient time to complete the NPRM process before the initial canal operations in June. Additionally, delaying the canal operations will impact L & A Contracting Co. requirements for delivery and E:\FR\FM\29JYR1.SGM 29JYR1
