The combination of vessel traffic and the testing operations in the water makes the controlling of vessels through the impacted portion of the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal necessary to prevent injury and property loss. In accordance with the general regulations in § 165.23 of this part, entry into, transiting, mooring, laying up or anchoring within the enforced area of this safety zone by any person or vessel is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, Sector Lake Michigan, or his or her designated representative.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 On May 9, 2012, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Safety Zone, Temporary Change for Recurring Fifth Coast Guard District Fireworks Displays; Northwest Harbor (East Channel) and Tred Avon River, MD’’ in the Federal Register (77 FR 27159). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. 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. Due to the need for immediate action, the restriction of vessel traffic is necessary to protect life, property and the environment; therefore, a 30-day notice is impracticable. Delaying the effective date would be contrary to the safety zones’ intended objectives of protecting persons and vessels involved in the event, and enhancing public and maritime safety. B. Basis and Purpose Fireworks display events are frequently held on or adjacent to navigable waters within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. For a description of the geographical area of each Coast Guard Sector—Captain of the Port Zone, please see 33 CFR 3.25. This regulation temporarily changes the enforcement period and regulated area for a safety zone for two annually recurring fireworks events, described at (b)(5) and (b)(21) of the Table to 33 CFR 165.506, that are normally scheduled to occur each year on June 14th and June and July—Saturday or Sunday before Independence Day holiday, respectively. On June 16, 2012, the American Flag Foundation will sponsor their annual fireworks event. This event will take place in Baltimore, MD on the waters of the Patapsco River. The regulation at 33 CFR 165.506 is enforced annually for this event. Also, a fleet of spectator vessels is expected to gather near the event site to view the fireworks. To provide for the safety of participants, spectators, and transiting vessels, the Coast Guard will temporarily restrict vessel traffic in the event area from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on June 16, 2012. The regulation at 33 CFR 165.506 will be enforced for the duration of the event. Vessels may not enter the regulated area unless they receive permission from the Coast Guard Captain of the Port E:\FR\FM\15JNR1.SGM 15JNR1
