ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is amending its regulations by modifying two existing danger zones that are located adjacent to the rifle range and pistol range at the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island in Beaufort County, South Carolina. The amendments include reformatting the regulations for clarity, modifying the boundaries of both danger zones, and modifying the hours of range operations from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. to 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. These amendments will enhance the ability of the U.S. Marine Corps to provide for the safe operation of the existing rifle and pistol ranges. DATES: Effective date: November 10, 2011. SUMMARY: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Attn: CECW–CO (David B. Olson), 441 G Street NW., Washington, DC 20314–1000. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David B. Olson, Headquarters, Operations and Regulatory Community of Practice, Washington, DC at 202–761– 4922 or Mr. Nathaniel I. Ball, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, Regulatory Division, at 843–329–8047. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat 892; 33 U.S.C. 3) the Corps is amending the regulations at 33 CFR part 334 to provide for the safe operation of the existing rifle and pistol ranges at the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. The modifications to the regulations are described below. The modifications include reformatting the regulations to describe the areas, the regulations, and enforcement. This format is consistent jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES ADDRESSES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:30 Oct 07, 2011 Jkt 226001 with other danger zone regulations and provides greater clarity. The boundaries of both danger zones have been modified to incorporate modern methods of measuring ballistic footprints and design criteria for range construction. Since these changes to the boundaries of the areas are relatively minor, the existing live fire warning signs will continue to be used to ensure safe navigation in the vicinity of the rifle and pistol ranges. These regulations allow the Commanding General, U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island to restrict passage of persons, vessels and other watercraft in navigable waters adjacent to the existing rifle range and pistol range between the hours of 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays, National holidays excepted, and at other times as designated and properly published by the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. The public will continue to be able to use these portions of Archers Creek, Ribbon Creek, and the Broad River when the rifle and pistol ranges are not in use. The proposed rule was published in the June 17, 2011, edition of the Federal Register (76 FR 35379) with the docket number COE–2011–0010. No comments were received. Procedural Requirements a. Review Under Executive Order 12866. This regulation is issued with respect to a military function of the Department of Defense and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply. b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This regulation has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96–354) which requires the preparation of a regulatory flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (i.e., small businesses and small governments). The Corps determined that this regulation would have little or no economic impact on the public nor would it result in any anticipated navigational hazard or interference with existing waterway traffic. This regulation will have no significant economic impact on small entities. c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. Due to the administrative nature of this action and because there is no intended change in the use of the area, this regulation will not have a significant impact to the quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. An environmental assessment PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 62631 has been prepared. It may be reviewed at the district office listed at the end of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. d. Unfunded Mandates Act. This regulation does not impose an enforceable duty among the private sector and, therefore, is not a Federal private sector mandate and is not subject to the requirements of Section 202 or 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (Pub. L. 104–4, 109 Stat. 48, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.). We have also found under Section 203 of the Act, that small governments will not be significantly or uniquely affected by this regulation.

AGENCY: United States Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Defense.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is amending its 
regulations by modifying two existing danger zones that are located 
adjacent to the rifle range and pistol range at the U.S. Marine Corps 
Recruit Depot Parris Island in Beaufort County, South Carolina. The 
amendments include reformatting the regulations for clarity, modifying 
the boundaries of both danger zones, and modifying the hours of range 
operations from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. to 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through 
Friday. These amendments will enhance the ability of the U.S. Marine 
Corps to provide for the safe operation of the existing rifle and 
pistol ranges.

DATES: Effective date: November 10, 2011.

ADDRESSES: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Attn: CECW-CO (David B. 
Olson), 441 G Street NW., Washington, DC 20314-1000.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David B. Olson, Headquarters, 
Operations and Regulatory Community of Practice, Washington, DC at 202-
761-4922 or Mr. Nathaniel I. Ball, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 
Charleston District, Regulatory Division, at 843-329-8047.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of 
the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and 
chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat 892; 33 
U.S.C. 3) the Corps is amending the regulations at 33 CFR part 334 to 
provide for the safe operation of the existing rifle and pistol ranges 
at the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. The modifications 
to the regulations are described below.
    The modifications include reformatting the regulations to describe 
the areas, the regulations, and enforcement. This format is consistent 
with other danger zone regulations and provides greater clarity. The 
boundaries of both danger zones have been modified to incorporate 
modern methods of measuring ballistic footprints and design criteria 
for range construction. Since these changes to the boundaries of the 
areas are relatively minor, the existing live fire warning signs will 
continue to be used to ensure safe navigation in the vicinity of the 
rifle and pistol ranges.
    These regulations allow the Commanding General, U.S. Marine Corps 
Recruit Depot Parris Island to restrict passage of persons, vessels and 
other watercraft in navigable waters adjacent to the existing rifle 
range and pistol range between the hours of 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday 
through Friday, and from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays, National 
holidays excepted, and at other times as designated and properly 
published by the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. The 
public will continue to be able to use these portions of Archers Creek, 
Ribbon Creek, and the Broad River when the rifle and pistol ranges are 
not in use.
    The proposed rule was published in the June 17, 2011, edition of 
the Federal Register (76 FR 35379) with the docket number COE-2011-
0010. No comments were received.

Procedural Requirements

    a. Review Under Executive Order 12866. This regulation is issued 
with respect to a military function of the Department of Defense and 
the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply.
    b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This regulation has 
been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96-354) 
which requires the preparation of a regulatory flexibility analysis for 
any regulation that will have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities (i.e., small businesses and small 
governments). The Corps determined that this regulation would have 
little or no economic impact on the public nor would it result in any 
anticipated navigational hazard or interference with existing waterway 
traffic. This regulation will have no significant economic impact on 
small entities.
    c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. Due to the 
administrative nature of this action and because there is no intended 
change in the use of the area, this regulation will not have a 
significant impact to the quality of the human environment and, 
therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement is not 
required. An environmental assessment has been prepared. It may be 
reviewed at the district office listed at the end of FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT, above.
    d. Unfunded Mandates Act. This regulation does not impose an 
enforceable duty among the private sector and, therefore, is not a 
Federal private sector mandate and is not subject to the requirements 
of Section 202 or 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (Pub. L. 104-
4, 109 Stat. 48, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.). We have also found under 
Section 203 of the Act, that small governments will not be 
significantly or uniquely affected by this regulation.
