Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 14 / Tuesday, January 22, 2013 / Rules and Regulations I. Laboratory Security Laboratory security has evolved in the past decade, reducing the likelihood of some emergencies and assisting in preparation and response for others. Most security measures are based on the laboratory’s vulnerability. Risks to laboratory security include, but are not limited to: (1) Theft or diversion of chemicals, biologicals, and radioactive or proprietary materials, mission-critical or high-value equipment; (2) Threats from activist groups; (3) Intentional release of, or exposure to, hazardous materials; (4) Sabotage or vandalism of chemicals or high-value equipment; (5) Loss or release of sensitive information; and (6) Rogue work or unauthorized laboratory experimentation. Security systems in the laboratory are used to detect and respond to a security breach, or a potential security breach, as well as to delay criminal activity by imposing multiple layered barriers of increasing stringency. A good laboratory security system will increase overall safety for laboratory personnel and the public, improve emergency preparedness by assisting with preplanning, and lower the organization’s liability by incorporating more rigorous planning, staffing, training, and command systems and implementing emergency communications protocols, drills, background checks, card access systems, video surveillance, and other measures. The security plan should clearly delineate response to security issues, including the coordination of institution and laboratory personnel with both internal and external responders. * * * * * [FR Doc. 2013–00788 Filed 1–18–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–26–P moved.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 165 [Docket Number USCG–2012–1097] RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone; Sellwood Bridge Move; Willamette River, Portland, OR Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing of a temporary safety zone around the Sellwood Bridge, located on the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, while it is being relocated 66 feet downriver as part of the new Sellwood Bridge construction project. This action is necessary to ensure the safety of persons and vessels transiting the Willamette River in the vicinity of the Sellwood Bridge as it is being tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:36 Jan 18, 2013 Jkt 229001 A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this 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 to do so would be impracticable as the Coast Guard received a late notification of the event. The reason for the late notification was that the date of the bridge move could be set only after an PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 4331 exact date of the completion of the two structures was established. Additionally, because of the complexity of moving the bridge in one piece to new abutments and piers, the construction team could not reschedule the move. 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 because to do otherwise would be impracticable as the Coast Guard received a notification of the event one month prior to it. The bridge construction contractor was constrained by the completion of the temporary structures and the availability of the subcontractor conducting the actual bridge move, so the date of the move could not be established any earlier. B. Basis and Purpose The Sellwood Bridge Move is part of the Sellwood Bridge Project to replace the existing 86-year-old bridge that is structurally inadequate and functionally obsolete. The project includes moving the bridge 66 feet north and building two temporary structures. A safety zone is needed to help ensure the safety of persons and vessels transiting the area from any overhead hazards created during the bridge move. C. Discussion of the Final Rule This rule establishes a safety zone that covers the waters of the Willamette River, extending 100 feet upriver and 160 feet downriver of the Sellwood Bridge and to the east and west shorelines. This safety zone prohibits all vessel traffic for the duration of the bridge move with the exception of emergency vessels. A passage through the safety zone for commercial vessels may be requested with a four-hour advance notice through the Captain of the Port by contacting the Sector Columbia River Command Center at (503) 861–6211, or the Patrol Commander on VHF Channel 23. This safety zone encompasses an existing safety zone along the east and west shorelines of the Sellwood Bridge (See Sellwood Bridge Project, Docket No. USCG–2012–0131), which was established for the entire duration of the construction of the new bridge, expected to be completed in July 2015. This safety zone will be effective on January 19 and 20, 2013. We note that upon the expiration of this safety zone, the Sellwood Bridge Project safety zone will continue to remain in place. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and E:\FR\FM\22JAR1.SGM 22JAR1 4332 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 14 / Tuesday, January 22, 2013 / Rules and Regulations executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes and 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, 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 Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. Although the safety zone would apply to the entire width of the river, the effect of this rule will not be significant because: (i) The safety zone is limited in size; (ii) traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission of the Captain of the Port; (iii) all river users in the area have been notified of the date and time of the temporary closure; and (iv) before the activation of the zone, the Coast Guard will issue maritime advisories widely available to users in the river. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with 2. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. 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. Although the safety zone would apply to the entire width of the river, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: (i) The safety zone is limited in size; (ii) traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission of the Captain of the Port; (iii) all known river users in the area have been notified of the date and time of the temporary closure; and (iv) before enforcing the zone, the Coast Guard will issue maritime advisories widely available to users in the river. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule. If the rule VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:36 Jan 18, 2013 Jkt 229001 would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. 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. 4. Collection of Information This rule will not call for a 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 the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and determined that this rule 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, PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. 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 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 This action is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. 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 determined that 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 involves the establishment of a temporary safety E:\FR\FM\22JAR1.SGM 22JAR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 14 / Tuesday, January 22, 2013 / Rules and Regulations zone around the Sellwood Bridge on the Willamette River in Portland, OR. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard is issuing this 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 to do so would be impracticable as 
the Coast Guard received a late notification of the event. The reason 
for the late notification was that the date of the bridge move could be 
set only after an exact date of the completion of the two structures 
was established. Additionally, because of the complexity of moving the 
bridge in one piece to new abutments and piers, the construction team 
could not reschedule the move.
    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 because to do otherwise would be 
impracticable as the Coast Guard received a notification of the event 
one month prior to it. The bridge construction contractor was 
constrained by the completion of the temporary structures and the 
availability of the subcontractor conducting the actual bridge move, so 
the date of the move could not be established any earlier.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The Sellwood Bridge Move is part of the Sellwood Bridge Project to 
replace the existing 86-year-old bridge that is structurally inadequate 
and functionally obsolete. The project includes moving the bridge 66 
feet north and building two temporary structures. A safety zone is 
needed to help ensure the safety of persons and vessels transiting the 
area from any overhead hazards created during the bridge move.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    This rule establishes a safety zone that covers the waters of the 
Willamette River, extending 100 feet upriver and 160 feet downriver of 
the Sellwood Bridge and to the east and west shorelines. This safety 
zone prohibits all vessel traffic for the duration of the bridge move 
with the exception of emergency vessels. A passage through the safety 
zone for commercial vessels may be requested with a four-hour advance 
notice through the Captain of the Port by contacting the Sector 
Columbia River Command Center at (503) 861-6211, or the Patrol 
Commander on VHF Channel 23.
    This safety zone encompasses an existing safety zone along the east 
and west shorelines of the Sellwood Bridge (See Sellwood Bridge 
Project, Docket No. USCG-2012-0131), which was established for the 
entire duration of the construction of the new bridge, expected to be 
completed in July 2015. This safety zone will be effective on January 
19 and 20, 2013. We note that upon the expiration of this safety zone, 
the Sellwood Bridge Project safety zone will continue to remain in 
place.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and

[[Page 4332]]

executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on these statutes and 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, 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 Executive Order 12866 or 
under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and 
Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. Although the safety zone 
would apply to the entire width of the river, the effect of this rule 
will not be significant because: (i) The safety zone is limited in 
size; (ii) traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the 
permission of the Captain of the Port; (iii) all river users in the 
area have been notified of the date and time of the temporary closure; 
and (iv) before the activation of the zone, the Coast Guard will issue 
maritime advisories widely available to users in the river.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as 
amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of 
regulations on small entities during rulemaking. 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. Although the safety zone would apply to the entire 
width of the river, this rule will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following 
reasons: (i) The safety zone is limited in size; (ii) traffic would be 
allowed to pass through the zone with the permission of the Captain of 
the Port; (iii) all known river users in the area have been notified of 
the date and time of the temporary closure; and (iv) before enforcing 
the zone, the Coast Guard will issue maritime advisories widely 
available to users in the river.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this rule. If the rule would affect your 
small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have 
questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please 
contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, 
above.
    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.

4. Collection of Information

    This rule will not call for a 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 the States, on the 
relationship between the national government and the States, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and determined 
that this rule 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 cause 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

    This action is not a ``significant energy action'' under Executive 
Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect 
Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use.

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 determined 
that 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 involves the establishment of a temporary safety

zone around the Sellwood Bridge on the Willamette River in Portland, 
OR. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under 
paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An 
environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a 
Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where 
indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may 
lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this 
rule.
