Each person registered as a swap dealer or major swap participant must become and remain a member of at least one futures association that is registered under section 17 of the Act and that provides for the membership therein of such swap dealer or major swap participant, as the case may be, unless no such futures association is so registered. Issued in Washington, DC, on January 11, 2012, by the Commission. David A. Stawick, Secretary of the Commission. Note: The following appendices will not appear in the Code of Federal Regulations. Appendices to Registration of Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants— Commission Voting Summary and Statements of Commissioners Appendix 1—Commission Voting Summary (a) Definition. For the purpose of this section, the term ‘‘person’’ means an ‘‘associated person of a swap dealer or major swap participant’’ as defined in section 1a(4) of the Act and § 1.3(aa)(6). (b) Fitness. No swap dealer or major swap participant may permit a person who is subject to a statutory disqualification under section 8a(2) or 8a(3) of the Act to effect or be involved in effecting swaps on behalf of the swap dealer or major swap participant, if the swap dealer or major swap participant knows, or in the exercise of reasonable care should know, of the statutory disqualification; Provided, however, that the prohibition set forth in this paragraph (b) shall not apply to any person listed as a principal or registered as an associated person of a futures commission merchant, retail foreign exchange dealer, introducing broker, commodity pool operator, commodity trading advisor, or leverage transaction merchant, or any person registered as a floor broker or floor trader, notwithstanding that the person is subject to a disqualification from 2629 On this matter, Chairman Gensler and Commissioners Sommers, Chilton, O’Malia and Wetjen voted in the affirmative; no Commissioner voted in the negative. Appendix 2—Statement of Chairman Gary Gensler I support the final rule to establish a process for the registration of swap dealers and major swap participants. The rule implements the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (DoddFrank Act) mandate that these entities be subject to registration and regulation for their swaps business. Registration will enable the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to monitor swap dealers and major swap participants for compliance with the DoddFrank Act and Commission rulemakings. Through regulation of dealers, the Commission will be able to protect market participants and the public, as well as promote sound risk management practices. The final rule includes a requirement that swap dealers and major swap participants become members of a registered futures association, such as the National Futures Association (NFA). In addition, I support the order delegating to the NFA the authority to register swap dealers and major swap participants.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is revising the list of special local regulations established for recurring marine events at various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rule revises 33 CFR 100.501 by adding 6 new annual recurring marine events and modifying event date(s) for 12 previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rule also deletes 4 previously listed marine events and corresponding regulated areas that no longer occur. These regulations will apply to all events listed in the table attached to the regulation, and include events such as regattas, power boat races and marine parades. Special local regulations are established to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during these events, reduce the Coast Guard’s administrative workload and expedite public notification of events. Entry into or movement within these proposed regulated areas during the enforcement periods is prohibited without approval of the appropriate Captain of the Port. DATES: This rule is effective February 21, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information On October 12, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Special Local Regulations; Recurring Marine Events in the Fifth Coast Guard District’’ in the Federal Register (76 FR 63239). We received no comments on the proposed rule. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard is revising the list of permanent special local regulations at 33 CFR 100.501, established for Table to § 100.501 section Number 1 2 3 4 5 6 recurring marine events at various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. The Fifth Coast Guard District is comprised of the land areas and U.S. navigable waters adjacent to North Carolina, Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland, Delaware and portions of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. For a detailed description of the geographical area of the district and each Coast Guard Sector—Captain of the Port Zone, please see 33 CFR 3.25. The Coast Guard is revising the list of special local regulations at 33 CFR 100.501, established for various marine events, by adding 6 new annual recurring events and modifying 12 previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rule also deletes 4 previously listed marine events and corresponding regulated areas that are no longer occurring. The special local regulated areas removed from this section include: Night in Venice, Ocean City, NJ; Baltimore ......................... ......................... ......................... ......................... ......................... ......................... County Community Waterfront Festival, Martin Lagoon, MD; Annapolis Triathlon Swim, Spa Creek, Severn River, MD; and Virginia state hydroplane championships, Western Branch, Elizabeth River, VA. Currently there are 57 special local regulations that are established and enforced at various periods throughout the year that are held on an annual basis. This rule will increase the total number of special local regulations to 59 locations for marine events within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. The table to 33 CFR 100.501 is renumbered within each section to facilitate future changes. The Coast Guard is revising regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by adding 6 new marine event locations to the permanent special local regulations listed in this section. The new special local regulations are listed in the following table, including reference by section as printed in the Table to § 100.501.

This regulation currently includes events such as sailing regattas, power boat races, swim races, holiday parades, crew and other paddle craft races. Currently, there are 57 annual recurring marine events and many other nonrecurring events within the Fifth Coast Guard District. In the past, the Coast Guard regulated these events by creating individual special local regulations on a VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 Jan 18, 2012 Jkt 226001 Revision case by case basis. Most of these events required only the establishment of a regulated area and assignment of a patrol commander to ensure safety. Issuing individual, annual special local regulations has created a significant administrative burden on the Coast Guard. Additionally, for the majority of these events, the Coast Guard does not receive PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Event Event Event Event Event Event Event Event Event Event Event Event date. date. date. date. date. date. date. date. date. date. date. date. notification of the event, or important details of the event are not finalized by event organizers, with sufficient time to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking and final rule before the event date. The Coast Guard must therefore create temporary final rules that sometimes are completed only days before the event. This results in delayed notification to E:\FR\FM\19JAR1.SGM 19JAR1 EMCDONALD on DSK29S0YB1PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 12 / Thursday, January 19, 2012 / Rules and Regulations the public, potentially placing the public and event participants at risk. This rule will significantly relieve the administrative burden on the Coast Guard, and at the same time allow the sponsor of the event and the Coast Guard to notify the public of these events in a timely manner. The public would be provided with notice of events through the table attached to this regulation. This table lists each recurring marine event that may be regulated by the Coast Guard, and indicates the sponsor, as well as the date(s) and location of the event. Because the dates and locations of these events may change slightly from year to year, the specific information on each event, including the exact dates, specific areas, and description of the regulated area, would be provided to the public through a Local Notice to Mariners published before the event, as well as through Broadcast Notice to Mariners. This table would also be updated by the Coast Guard periodically to add new recurring events, remove events that no longer occur, and update listed events to ensure accurate information is provided. Based on the nature of marine events, large number of participants and spectators, and the event locations, the Coast Guard has determined that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to participants or waterway users if normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the event. Possible hazards include risks of participant injury or death resulting from near or actual contact with non-participant vessels traversing through the regulated areas. In order to protect the safety of all waterway users including event participants and spectators, this rule would establish special local regulations for the time and location of each marine event. This prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The designated ‘‘Patrol Commander’’ includes Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or petty officer who has been designated by the Captain of the Port to act on their behalf. On-scene patrol commander may be augmented by local, State or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the Coast Guard. Discussion of Comments and Changes The Coast Guard did not receive comments in response to the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) published in the Federal Register. Accordingly, the Coast Guard is revising the special local regulations as outlined in this VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:51 Jan 18, 2012 Jkt 226001 2631 rulemaking and listed in the table to § 100.501. Patrol Commander, vessels may transit through the regulated area. 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. 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 or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 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 those Orders. We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. The effect of this action merely establishes the dates on which the existing regulations would be enforced and consolidates them within one regulation. It would not impose any additional restrictions on vessel traffic. 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 would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the areas where marine events are being held. This regulation will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities because it will only be enforced on marine events that have been permitted by the Coast Guard Captain of the Port. The Captain of the Port will ensure that small entities are able to operate in the areas where events are occurring. Additionally, in most cases, vessels will be able to safely transit around the regulated area at all times, and, with the permission of the PO 00000 Frm 00019 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 E:\FR\FM\19JAR1.SGM 19JAR1 2632 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 12 / Thursday, January 19, 2012 / Rules and Regulations 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. EMCDONALD on DSK29S0YB1PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:51 Jan 18, 2012 Jkt 226001 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 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. The category of water activities includes but is not limited to sail boat regattas, boat parades, power boat racing, swimming events, crew racing, and sail board racing. 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. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 100 Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Waterways. For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 33 CFR part 100 as follows: PART 100—SAFETY OF LIFE ON NAVIGABLE WATERS 1.

[Docket No. USCG-2011-0106]
RIN 1625-AA08


Special Local Regulations; Recurring Marine Events in the Fifth 
Coast Guard District

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is revising the list of special local 
regulations established for recurring marine events at various 
locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard 
District. This rule revises 33 CFR 100.501 by adding 6 new annual 
recurring marine events and modifying event date(s) for 12 previously 
established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast 
Guard District. This rule also deletes 4 previously listed marine 
events and corresponding regulated areas that no longer occur. These 
regulations will apply to all events listed in the table attached to 
the regulation, and include events such as regattas, power boat races 
and marine parades. Special local regulations are established to 
provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during these events, 
reduce the Coast Guard's administrative workload and expedite public 
notification of events. Entry into or movement within these proposed 
regulated areas during the enforcement periods is prohibited without 
approval of the appropriate Captain of the Port.

DATES: This rule is effective February 21, 2012.

ADDRESSES: Comments and material received from the public, as well as 
documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Regulatory Information

    On October 12, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled ``Special Local Regulations; Recurring Marine Events in 
the Fifth Coast Guard District'' in the Federal Register (76 FR 63239). 
We received no comments on the proposed rule.

Basis and Purpose

    The Coast Guard is revising the list of permanent special local 
regulations at 33 CFR 100.501, established for recurring marine events 
at various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast 
Guard District. The Fifth Coast Guard District is comprised of the land 
areas and U.S. navigable waters adjacent to North Carolina, Virginia, 
District of Columbia, Maryland, Delaware and portions of Pennsylvania 
and New Jersey. For a detailed description of the geographical area of 
the district and each Coast Guard Sector--Captain of the Port Zone, 
please see 33 CFR 3.25.
    The Coast Guard is revising the list of special local regulations 
at 33 CFR 100.501, established for various marine events, by adding 6 
new annual recurring events and modifying 12 previously established 
locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard 
District. This rule also deletes 4 previously listed marine events and 
corresponding regulated areas that are no longer occurring. The special 
local regulated areas removed from this section include: Night in 
Venice, Ocean City, NJ; Baltimore County Community Waterfront Festival, 
Martin Lagoon, MD; Annapolis Triathlon Swim, Spa Creek, Severn River, 
MD; and Virginia state hydroplane championships, Western Branch, 
Elizabeth River, VA. Currently there are 57 special local regulations 
that are established and enforced at various periods throughout the 
year that are held on an annual basis. This rule will increase the 
total number of special local regulations to 59 locations for marine 
events within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. The table 
to 33 CFR 100.501 is renumbered within each section to facilitate 
future changes.
    The Coast Guard is revising regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by adding 
6 new marine event locations to the permanent special local regulations 
listed in this section. The new special local regulations are listed in 
the following table, including reference by section as printed in the 
Table to Sec.  100.501.

    This regulation currently includes events such as sailing regattas, 
power boat races, swim races, holiday parades, crew and other paddle 
craft races. Currently, there are 57 annual recurring marine events and 
many other non-recurring events within the Fifth Coast Guard District. 
In the past, the Coast Guard regulated these events by creating 
individual special local regulations on a case by case basis. Most of 
these events required only the establishment of a regulated area and 
assignment of a patrol commander to ensure safety. Issuing individual, 
annual special local regulations has created a significant 
administrative burden on the Coast Guard.
    Additionally, for the majority of these events, the Coast Guard 
does not receive notification of the event, or important details of the 
event are not finalized by event organizers, with sufficient time to 
publish a notice of proposed rulemaking and final rule before the event 
date. The Coast Guard must therefore create temporary final rules that 
sometimes are completed only days before the event. This results in 
delayed notification to

[[Page 2631]]

the public, potentially placing the public and event participants at 
risk.
    This rule will significantly relieve the administrative burden on 
the Coast Guard, and at the same time allow the sponsor of the event 
and the Coast Guard to notify the public of these events in a timely 
manner. The public would be provided with notice of events through the 
table attached to this regulation. This table lists each recurring 
marine event that may be regulated by the Coast Guard, and indicates 
the sponsor, as well as the date(s) and location of the event. Because 
the dates and locations of these events may change slightly from year 
to year, the specific information on each event, including the exact 
dates, specific areas, and description of the regulated area, would be 
provided to the public through a Local Notice to Mariners published 
before the event, as well as through Broadcast Notice to Mariners. This 
table would also be updated by the Coast Guard periodically to add new 
recurring events, remove events that no longer occur, and update listed 
events to ensure accurate information is provided.
    Based on the nature of marine events, large number of participants 
and spectators, and the event locations, the Coast Guard has determined 
that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to participants 
or waterway users if normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the 
event. Possible hazards include risks of participant injury or death 
resulting from near or actual contact with non-participant vessels 
traversing through the regulated areas. In order to protect the safety 
of all waterway users including event participants and spectators, this 
rule would establish special local regulations for the time and 
location of each marine event.
    This prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or 
anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas 
during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the Captain of 
the Port, or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The designated 
``Patrol Commander'' includes Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or 
petty officer who has been designated by the Captain of the Port to act 
on their behalf. On-scene patrol commander may be augmented by local, 
State or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the Coast 
Guard.

Discussion of Comments and Changes

    The Coast Guard did not receive comments in response to the notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) published in the Federal Register. 
Accordingly, the Coast Guard is revising the special local regulations 
as outlined in this rulemaking and listed in the table to Sec.  
100.501.

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 those Orders.
    We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a 
full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. The effect of this action 
merely establishes the dates on which the existing regulations would be 
enforced and consolidates them within one regulation. It would not 
impose any additional restrictions on vessel traffic.

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 would affect the following entities, some of which 
might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending 
to transit or anchor in the areas where marine events are being held. 
This regulation will not have a significant impact on a substantial 
number of small entities because it will only be enforced on marine 
events that have been permitted by the Coast Guard Captain of the Port. 
The Captain of the Port will ensure that small entities are able to 
operate in the areas where events are occurring. Additionally, in most 
cases, vessels will be able to safely transit around the regulated area 
at all times, and, with the permission of the Patrol Commander, vessels 
may transit through the regulated area.

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 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 (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

[[Page 2632]]

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 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 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. The category of water 
activities includes but is not limited to sail boat regattas, boat 
parades, power boat racing, swimming events, crew racing, and sail 
board racing. 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.

List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 100

    Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping 
requirements, Waterways.

    For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 
33 CFR part 100 as follows:
