Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing special local regulations on the waters of the Intracoastal Waterway in Boca Raton, Florida during the Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade on Saturday, December 17, 2011. The marine parade will consist of approximately 60 vessels. The marine parade will begin at C–15 Canal then head south on the Intracoastal Waterway to the Hillsborough Bridge, where the marine parade will conclude. These special local regulations are necessary to jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:23 Dec 15, 2011 Jkt 226001 provide for the safety of life on navigable waters of the United States during the marine parade. The special local regulations consist of a series of moving buffer zones around participant vessels as they transit from C–15 Canal to the Hillsborough Bridge. Persons and vessels that are not participating in the marine parade are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within any of the buffer zones unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on December 17, 2011. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket are part of docket USCG–2011– 1078 and are available online by going to http://www.regulations.gov, inserting USCG–2011–1078 in the ‘‘Keyword’’ box, and then clicking ‘‘Search.’’ They are also available for inspection or copying at the Docket Management Facility (M–30), U.S. Department of Transportation, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this temporary final rule, call or email Lieutenant Jennifer S. Makowski, Sector Miami Prevention Department, Coast Guard; telephone (305) 535–8724, email Jennifer.S.Makowski@uscg.mil. If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Renee V. Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone (202) 366–9826. 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 the Coast Guard did not receive necessary information about this year’s Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade until November 7, 2011. As a result, the Coast Guard did not have sufficient time to publish an NPRM and to receive public comments prior to the event. Any delay in the PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 78151 effective date of this rule would be contrary to the public interest because immediate action is needed to minimize potential danger to marine parade participants, participant vessels, spectators, and the general public. For the same reason discussed above, 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 legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish special local regulations: 33 U.S.C. 1233. The purpose of the rule is to insure safety of life on navigable waters of the United States during the Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade. Discussion of Rule On December 17, 2011, the City of Boca Raton is hosting the Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade on the Intracoastal Waterway in Boca Raton, Florida. The marine parade will consist of approximately 60 vessels. The marine parade will begin at C–15 Canal and transit south on the Intracoastal Waterway to the Hillsborough Bridge. Although this event occurs annually, and special local regulations have been promulgated in the Code of Federal Regulations at 33 CFR 100.701, the date of the marine parade does not correspond with the date published in the Code of Federal Regulations, and the special local regulations have been modified. Therefore, the special local regulations set forth in 33 CFR 100.701 are inapplicable for this year’s Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade. The special local regulations consist of a series of buffer zones around vessels participating in the Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade. These buffer zones are as follows: (1) All waters within 75 yards of the lead marine parade vessel; (2) all waters within 75 yards of the last marine parade vessel; and (3) all waters within 50 yards of all other marine parade vessels. Notice of the special local regulations, including the identities of the lead marine parade vessel and the last marine parade vessel, will be provided prior to the marine parade by Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. These special local regulations will be enforced from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on December 17, 2011. Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring, or remaining within the buffer zones unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative. Persons and E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1 78152 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 242 / Friday, December 16, 2011 / Rules and Regulations vessels desiring to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within any of the buffer zones may contact the Captain of the Port Miami by telephone at (305) 535–4472, or a designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16, to request authorization. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within any of the buffer zones is granted by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative. 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. jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has not been designated a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed this regulation under Executive Order 12866. The economic impact of this rule is not significant for the following reasons: (1) The special local regulations will be enforced for only three hours; (2) although persons and vessels will not be able to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the buffer zones without authorization from the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative, they may operate in the surrounding area during the enforcement period; (3) persons and vessels may still enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the buffer zones if authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative; and (4) the Coast Guard will provide advance notification of the special local regulations to the local maritime community by Local Notice to VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:23 Dec 15, 2011 Jkt 226001 Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 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 may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within that portion of the Intracoastal Waterway encompassed within the special local regulations from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on December 17, 2011. For the reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we offer to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they can 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 or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 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 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 effect 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. Collection of Information Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have Tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination 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. This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 242 / Friday, December 16, 2011 / Rules and Regulations 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. jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 that 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 special local regulations issued in conjunction with a marine parade. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction, an environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for this rule.

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing special local regulations on 
the waters of the Intracoastal Waterway in Boca Raton, Florida during 
the Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade on Saturday, December 17, 2011. The 
marine parade will consist of approximately 60 vessels. The marine 
parade will begin at C-15 Canal then head south on the Intracoastal 
Waterway to the Hillsborough Bridge, where the marine parade will 
conclude. These special local regulations are necessary to provide for 
the safety of life on navigable waters of the United States during the 
marine parade. The special local regulations consist of a series of 
moving buffer zones around participant vessels as they transit from C-
15 Canal to the Hillsborough Bridge. Persons and vessels that are not 
participating in the marine parade are prohibited from entering, 
transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within any of the buffer 
zones unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a 
designated representative.

DATES: This rule is effective from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on December 17, 
2011.

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 the Coast Guard did not receive 
necessary information about this year's Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade 
until November 7, 2011. As a result, the Coast Guard did not have 
sufficient time to publish an NPRM and to receive public comments prior 
to the event. Any delay in the effective date of this rule would be 
contrary to the public interest because immediate action is needed to 
minimize potential danger to marine parade participants, participant 
vessels, spectators, and the general public.
    For the same reason discussed above, 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 legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard's authority to 
establish special local regulations: 33 U.S.C. 1233.
    The purpose of the rule is to insure safety of life on navigable 
waters of the United States during the Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade.

Discussion of Rule

    On December 17, 2011, the City of Boca Raton is hosting the Boca 
Raton Holiday Boat Parade on the Intracoastal Waterway in Boca Raton, 
Florida. The marine parade will consist of approximately 60 vessels. 
The marine parade will begin at C-15 Canal and transit south on the 
Intracoastal Waterway to the Hillsborough Bridge. Although this event 
occurs annually, and special local regulations have been promulgated in 
the Code of Federal Regulations at 33 CFR 100.701, the date of the 
marine parade does not correspond with the date published in the Code 
of Federal Regulations, and the special local regulations have been 
modified. Therefore, the special local regulations set forth in 33 CFR 
100.701 are inapplicable for this year's Boca Raton Holiday Boat 
Parade.
    The special local regulations consist of a series of buffer zones 
around vessels participating in the Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade. 
These buffer zones are as follows: (1) All waters within 75 yards of 
the lead marine parade vessel; (2) all waters within 75 yards of the 
last marine parade vessel; and (3) all waters within 50 yards of all 
other marine parade vessels. Notice of the special local regulations, 
including the identities of the lead marine parade vessel and the last 
marine parade vessel, will be provided prior to the marine parade by 
Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. These 
special local regulations will be enforced from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on 
December 17, 2011. Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering, 
transiting through, anchoring, or remaining within the buffer zones 
unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated 
representative. Persons and

[[Page 78152]]

vessels desiring to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within 
any of the buffer zones may contact the Captain of the Port Miami by 
telephone at (305) 535-4472, or a designated representative via VHF 
radio on channel 16, to request authorization. If authorization to 
enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within any of the buffer 
zones is granted by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated 
representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization 
must comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port Miami or a 
designated representative.

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

    Executive Orders 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, 
and 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, direct agencies to assess 
the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. This rule has not been designated a significant regulatory 
action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the 
Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed this regulation under 
Executive Order 12866.
    The economic impact of this rule is not significant for the 
following reasons: (1) The special local regulations will be enforced 
for only three hours; (2) although persons and vessels will not be able 
to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the buffer zones 
without authorization from the Captain of the Port Miami or a 
designated representative, they may operate in the surrounding area 
during the enforcement period; (3) persons and vessels may still enter, 
transit through, anchor in, or remain within the buffer zones if 
authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated 
representative; and (4) the Coast Guard will provide advance 
notification of the special local regulations to the local maritime 
community by Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

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 may affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to 
enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within that portion of the 
Intracoastal Waterway encompassed within the special local regulations 
from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on December 17, 2011. For the reasons 
discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above, this 
rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we offer to assist small 
entities in understanding the rule so that they can 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 or 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 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 effect 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 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

[[Page 78153]]

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 that 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 special local regulations issued in 
conjunction with a marine parade. Under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h), 
of the Instruction, an environmental analysis checklist and a 
categorical exclusion determination are not required for this rule.
