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. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD 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 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:02 Jun 29, 2012 Jkt 226001 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 which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Regulatory History and Information On May 9, 2012, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club Independence Day Fireworks Display, Broad Bay; Virginia Beach, Virginia in the Federal Register (76 FR 27156). 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 zone’s intended objectives of protecting persons and vessels involved in the event, and enhancing public and maritime safety. B. Basis and Purpose On July 1, 2012 Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club will host a fireworks display on the shoreline of the navigable waters of Broad Bay in Virginia Beach, VA. The fireworks will be launched from a shore VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:02 Jun 29, 2012 Jkt 226001 based platform centered on position 36°52′08″ N/076°00′46″ W (NAD 1983). Due to the need to protect mariners and spectators from the hazards associated with the fireworks display, such as the accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris, vessel traffic will be temporarily restricted on all navigable waters within 400 yard radius of the fireworks launch site. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule The Captain of the Port Hampton Roads has changed the enforcement period of the safety zone for one recurring fireworks event within the Fifth Coast Guard District. This regulation applies to the July 4th fireworks event listed at (c)(4), in the Table to 33 CFR 165.506. The event will not be taking place on July 4th. The Table to 33 CFR 165.506, event (c)(4), establishes the enforcement date for the fireworks event held in Virginia Beach, VA on specified waters of the Broad Bay within the area bounded by 400 yard radius centered on position 36°52′08″ N/076°00′46″ W (NAD 1983). The area of the safety zone enforcement will not change; the date of enforcement of the safety zone has changed. This temporary safety zone will be enforced from 9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on July 1, 2012. In the interest of public safety, general navigation within the safety zone will be restricted during the specified date and times. Except for participants and vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or his representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. D. 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. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. Although this regulation restricts access to the safety zone, the effect of this rule will not be significant because: (i) The safety zone will be in effect for a limited duration; (ii) the zone is of limited size; (iii) mariners may transit the waters in and around this safety PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39175 zone at the discretion of the Captain of the Port or designated representative; and (iv), the Coast Guard will make notifications via maritime advisories so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. 2. Impact on 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. The 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 that portion of the Broad Bay from 9:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on July 1, 2012. This safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This safety zone would be activated, and thus subject to enforcement, for only one-half hour in the evening, when vessel traffic is low. Although the safety zone would apply to the entirety of Broad Bay, traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission of the Captain of the Port. Before the activation of the zone, we would issue maritime advisories widely available to users of the river. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. 3. 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 E:\FR\FM\02JYR1.SGM 02JYR1 39176 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 127 / Monday, July 2, 2012 / Rules and Regulations 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. 4. 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). 5. 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. 6. Protest Activities The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels. 7. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:02 Jun 29, 2012 Jkt 226001 8. Taking of Private Property 13. Technical Standards This rule will not affect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference With Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 9. 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. 10. 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. 11. 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. 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. Frm 00034 Fmt 4700 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 which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction. This rule involves establishing a temporary safety zone. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination will be available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This supplementary information section is arranged as follows: I. Synopsis of Proposed Rule II. Public Comments and EPA’s Responses III. What action is EPA taking? IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Synopsis of Proposed Rule Ohio submitted a plan to address regional haze on March 11, 2011. This plan was intended to address the requirements in CAA section 169A, and interpreted in EPA’s Regional Haze Rule as codified at 40 CFR 51.308. This rule was promulgated on July 1, 1999 (64 FR 35713). Further significant provisions were promulgated on July 6, 2005, providing further guidance on provisions related to best available retrofit technology (BART). EPA proposed a limited approval of Ohio’s submittal on January 25, 2012 (77 FR 3712). The proposal notice described the nature of the regional haze problem and the statutory and regulatory background for EPA’s review of Ohio’s regional haze plan. The proposal provided a lengthy delineation of the requirements that Ohio intended to meet and that EPA proposed to approve, including requirements for mandating BART, consultation with other states in establishing goals representing reasonable further progress in mitigating anthropogenic visibility PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 impairment, and adoption of limitations as necessary to implement a long term strategy (LTS) for reducing visibility impairment. Of particular interest were EPA’s proposed findings regarding BART. Using modeling performed by the Lake Michigan Air Directors Consortium (LADCO), Ohio identified one nonelectric generating unit (non-EGU) source, P.H. Glatfelter facility in Ross County, as having sufficient visibility impact to warrant being subject to a requirement representing BART. Ohio determined that BART was the use of flue gas desulfurization on the two BART-subject boilers. P.H. Glatfelter then requested limits that would allow an alternative strategy. In response to P.H. Glatfelter’s request, Ohio adopted sulfur dioxide (SO2) limits governing the combined emissions from P.H. Glatfelter’s boilers #7 and #8, with limits requiring flue gas desulfurization more stringent than BART on individual boilers. In the notice of proposed rulemaking, EPA proposed to approve Ohio’s alternativeto-BART limits for SO2, and continued operation of particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOX) controls for P.H. Glatfelter. These limits are enforceable at P.H. Glatfelter in a permit issued by Ohio. EPA proposed that Ohio’s new, tighter emission limits for the Glatfelter facility in Ross County satisfies the BART requirements for non-EGUs. II. Public Comments and EPA’s Responses The publication of EPA’s proposed rule on January 25, 2012 (77 FR 3712) initiated a 30-day public comment period that ended on February 24, 2012. During that public comment period we received comments from the United States Forest Service (FS), the United States National Park Service (NPS), the Ohio Utility Group, and Earth Justice (on behalf of conservation organizations representing the National Parks Conservation Association, Natural Resources Defense Council, and the Sierra Club) on the proposed rulemaking on the Ohio regional haze E:\FR\FM\02JYR1.SGM 02JYR1

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking


SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Regulatory History and Information

    On May 9, 2012, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
entitled Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club Independence Day Fireworks Display, 
Broad Bay; Virginia Beach, Virginia in the Federal Register (76 FR 
27156). 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 zone's intended objectives of protecting persons and vessels 
involved in the event, and enhancing public and maritime safety.

B. Basis and Purpose

    On July 1, 2012 Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club will host a fireworks 
display on the shoreline of the navigable waters of Broad Bay in 
Virginia Beach, VA. The fireworks will be launched from a shore based 
platform centered on position 36[deg]52'08'' N/076[deg]00'46'' W (NAD 
1983). Due to the need to protect mariners and spectators from the 
hazards associated with the fireworks display, such as the accidental 
discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers 
or other debris, vessel traffic will be temporarily restricted on all 
navigable waters within 400 yard radius of the fireworks launch site.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    The Captain of the Port Hampton Roads has changed the enforcement 
period of the safety zone for one recurring fireworks event within the 
Fifth Coast Guard District. This regulation applies to the July 4th 
fireworks event listed at (c)(4), in the Table to 33 CFR 165.506. The 
event will not be taking place on July 4th.
    The Table to 33 CFR 165.506, event (c)(4), establishes the 
enforcement date for the fireworks event held in Virginia Beach, VA on 
specified waters of the Broad Bay within the area bounded by 400 yard 
radius centered on position 36[deg]52'08'' N/076[deg]00'46'' W (NAD 
1983). The area of the safety zone enforcement will not change; the 
date of enforcement of the safety zone has changed. This temporary 
safety zone will be enforced from 9:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on July 1, 2012. 
In the interest of public safety, general navigation within the safety 
zone will be restricted during the specified date and times. Except for 
participants and vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Captain of the 
Port or his representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in 
the regulated area.

D. 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.

1. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) 
of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not 
require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 
6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not 
reviewed it under that Order. Although this regulation restricts access 
to the safety zone, the effect of this rule will not be significant 
because: (i) The safety zone will be in effect for a limited duration; 
(ii) the zone is of limited size; (iii) mariners may transit the waters 
in and around this safety zone at the discretion of the Captain of the 
Port or designated representative; and (iv), the Coast Guard will make 
notifications via maritime advisories so mariners can adjust their 
plans accordingly.

2. Impact on 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.
    The 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 that portion of the Broad Bay from 9:30 p.m. until 
10 p.m. on July 1, 2012. This safety zone would not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the 
following reasons. This safety zone would be activated, and thus 
subject to enforcement, for only one-half hour in the evening, when 
vessel traffic is low. Although the safety zone would apply to the 
entirety of Broad Bay, traffic would be allowed to pass through the 
zone with the permission of the Captain of the Port. Before the 
activation of the zone, we would issue maritime advisories widely 
available to users of the river.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.

3. 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

[[Page 39176]]

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.

4. 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).

5. 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.

6. Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. 
Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that 
your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or 
security of people, places or vessels.

7. 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.

8. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not affect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference With Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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.

13. Technical Standards

    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

14. 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 which do not individually 
or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. 
This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph 
(34)(g), of the Instruction. This rule involves establishing a 
temporary safety zone. An environmental analysis checklist and a 
categorical exclusion determination will be available in the docket 
where indicated under ADDRESSES.
