The Coast Guard is extending the effective period for the temporary safety zone on the specified waters of the Missouri River from the Montana and North Dakota border to the confluence with the Mississippi River, extending the entire width of the river. Temporary section 33 CFR 165.T11– 0511, which established the temporary safety zone, was set to expire August 30, 2011. Extending the effective period for this safety zone provides continued and uninterrupted protection of levees and personnel involved in ongoing high water response. Continuing the safety zone will significantly reduce the threat of destruction to levees and vessels and tows.

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 an NPRM. This rule extends the existing temporary safety zone on the Missouri River from the border between Montana and North Dakota at 104.05 degrees west Background The final regulations (TD 9534) that are the subject of this correction are under sections 381 and 446 of the Internal Revenue Code. Need for Correction As published on August 1, 2011 (76 FR 45673), the final regulations (TD 9534) contain errors that may prove to be misleading and are in need of clarification.

This extension is necessary to continue uninterrupted protection of levees and personnel involved in ongoing high water response. Failing to extend the effective dates for this rule pending completion of notice and comment rulemaking is impracticable and contrary to the public interest because it would cause a gap in the ability to enforce the needed safety zone for protection of all responders, the response efforts, and the environment. For the same reasons, 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. Basis and Purpose The safety zone in place pursuant to the temporary final Rule at docket USCG–2011–0511 (76 FR 37647) established a safety zone for the record flooding on the Missouri River from June 2, 2011 through August 30, 2011. The safety zone was enforced through actual notice from June 2, 2011 until June 28, 2011, when the rule published in the Federal Register to ensure seamless protection of those involved in the response efforts. This rule extends the effective dates of the temporary safety zone on the Missouri River from the border between Montana and North Dakota at 104.05 degrees west longitude to the confluence with the Mississippi River at 90.11 degrees West longitude and extending the entire width of the river, which is currently set to expire on August 30, 2011. The temporary safety zone created by this rule ensures that there is no gap in authority to protect all responders, levees, and tow boats and tows. Discussion of Rule The Coast Guard is extending the effective date of a safety zone encompassing the entire Missouri River from the border between Montana and North Dakota at 104.05 degrees west longitude to the confluence with the Mississippi River at 90.11 degrees West longitude and extending the entire width of the river. During enforcement periods, vessels and tows may not enter this zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Upper Mississippi River. Emergency response boats or vessels may enter these waters when responding to emergent situations on or near the river. The Captain of the Port Sector Upper Mississippi River will E:\FR\FM\30AUR1.SGM 30AUR1
