The ‘‘Additional Information’’ section also contains related information about the docket. In addition, there is information on obtaining copies of related rulemaking documents. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 Background On November 13, 2012, the FAA issued Notice No. 12–07, entitled ‘‘Air Carrier Contract Maintenance Requirements’’ (77 FR 67584). Comments to that document were to be received on or before February 11, 2013. By letter dated January 13, 2013, the Regional Air Cargo Carriers Association (RACCA) requested a 48-day extension of the comment period, to March 31, 2013. The petitioner requested this extension to allow time to adequately assess the impact of the requirements proposed in the NPRM, prepare comments, and develop proposed alternatives. If enacted in its currentlyproposed form, RACCA believes the proposed rulemaking would result in significant unintended consequences, including greater operator cost and manpower requirements than those estimated in the NPRM, loss of efficiency, unbudgeted loss of aircraft availability, and a substantial additional workload for the FAA that would result in a diversion of FAA resources from more safety-critical tasks. It further believes that the rulemaking would add complication to the contract maintenance process without a quantifiable improvement in safety, and therefore it would not serve the public’s interest. While the FAA concurs with the petitioner’s request for an extension of the comment period on Notice No. 12– 07, it does not support a 48-day extension. The FAA finds that an additional 30 days is sufficient for the petitioner to analyze the NPRM and provide meaningful comment to Notice No. 12–07. Absent unusual circumstances, the FAA does not anticipate any further extension of the comment period for this rulemaking. Extension of Comment Period In accordance with § 11.47(c) of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, the FAA has reviewed the petition made by RACCA for extension of the comment period to Notice No. 12–07. This petitioner has shown a substantive interest in the proposed rule and good cause for the extension. The FAA has determined that extension of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:37 Feb 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 comment period is consistent with the public interest, and that good cause exists for taking this action. Accordingly, the comment period for Notice No. 12–07 is extended until March 13, 2013. eRulemaking Portal referenced in item (1) above. Issued in Washington, DC, February 6, 2013.

Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard previously created a temporary special local regulation for this event when it was held in 2012. That rule was published in the Federal Register on March 14, 2012 (77 FR 14963), and the requirements of that rule are the same as those in this proposed rule. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 9867 C. Basis and Purpose The Moss Point Main Street Association applied for a Marine Event Permit to conduct a high speed boat race on Robertson Lake & O’Leary Lake, Moss Point, MS on April 27–28, 2013. This event will draw in a large number of pleasure craft and the high speed boats pose a significant safety hazard to both vessels and mariners operating in or near the area. The COTP Mobile proposes to establish a temporary special local regulation for a portion of Robertson Lake & O’Leary Lake, Moss Point, MS. This proposed temporary special local regulation is deemed necessary to safeguard persons and vessels during the high speed boat races. The legal basis and authorities for this proposed rule are found in 33 U.S.C. 1233 and 33 CFR part 100, which authorizes the Coast Guard to propose, establish, and define regulatory special local regulations for safety during marine events. The COTP anticipates minimal impact on vessel traffic due to this proposed regulation. However, the proposed temporary special local regulation is deemed necessary for the safeguard of life and property within the COTP Mobile zone. D. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary special local regulation for a portion of Robertson Lake & O’Leary Lake, Moss Point, MS, enclosed by a bounded area starting at a point on the shore at approximately 30° 25′ 11.0″ N, 088 32′ 24.4″ W, then east to 30° 25′ 12.9″ N, 088 32′ 18.0″ W, then south to 30° 24′ 50.9″ N, 088 32′ 09.6″ W, then west following the shore line back to the starting point at 30° 25′ 11.0″ N, 088 32′ 24.4″ W. This temporary rule will safeguard life and property in this area. Entry into, transiting or anchoring in this zone is prohibited to all vessels not registered with the sponsor as participants or not part of the regatta patrol, unless specifically authorized by the COTP Mobile or a designated representative. They may be contacted on VHF–FM Channel 16 or through Coast Guard Sector Mobile at 251–441– 5976. The COTP Mobile or a designated representative will inform the public through broadcast notice to mariners of changes in the effective period for the proposed temporary special local regulation. This proposed rule will be effective from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on April 27–28, 2013. E. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and E:\FR\FM\12FEP1.SGM 12FEP1 9868 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 29 / Tuesday, February 12, 2013 / Proposed Rules executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes or executive orders. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This proposed 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. The temporary special local regulation listed in this proposed rule will only restrict vessel traffic from entering or transiting a small portion of Robertson Lake & O’Leary Lake, Moss Point, MS. The effect of this regulation will not be significant for several reasons: (1) This rule will only affect vessel traffic for a short duration; (2) vessels may request permission from the COTP to transit through the regulated area; and (3) the impacts on routine navigation are expected to be minimal. Notifications to the marine community will be made through Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. These notifications will allow the public to plan operations around the affected area. 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 proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This proposed rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the affected portion of the Robertson Lake & O’Leary Lake during the high speed boat races. This proposed temporary special local regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. The regulated area is limited in size, is of short duration and vessel traffic may request permission VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:06 Feb 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 from the COTP Mobile or a designated representative to enter or transit through the regulated area. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed 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 proposed 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 want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed rule. If the proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 4. Collection of Information This proposed rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). 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 proposed rule would not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 From Environmental Health Risks We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This proposed 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. 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 proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. 11. Indian Tribal Governments 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. 12. Energy Effects 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 PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 This proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it would 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 proposed rule 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 E:\FR\FM\12FEP1.SGM 12FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 29 / Tuesday, February 12, 2013 / Proposed Rules 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 made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This proposed rule involves safety for the public and is not expected to result in any significant adverse environmental impact as described in NEPA. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary 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 proposed rule. List of Subjects 33 CFR Part 100 Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Waterways. For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR part 100 as follows: PART 100—SAFETY OF LIFE ON NAVIGABLE WATERS 1.

B. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard previously created a temporary special local 
regulation for this event when it was held in 2012. That rule was 
published in the Federal Register on March 14, 2012 (77 FR 14963), and 
the requirements of that rule are the same as those in this proposed 
rule.

C. Basis and Purpose

    The Moss Point Main Street Association applied for a Marine Event 
Permit to conduct a high speed boat race on Robertson Lake & O'Leary 
Lake, Moss Point, MS on April 27-28, 2013. This event will draw in a 
large number of pleasure craft and the high speed boats pose a 
significant safety hazard to both vessels and mariners operating in or 
near the area. The COTP Mobile proposes to establish a temporary 
special local regulation for a portion of Robertson Lake & O'Leary 
Lake, Moss Point, MS. This proposed temporary special local regulation 
is deemed necessary to safeguard persons and vessels during the high 
speed boat races. The legal basis and authorities for this proposed 
rule are found in 33 U.S.C. 1233 and 33 CFR part 100, which authorizes 
the Coast Guard to propose, establish, and define regulatory special 
local regulations for safety during marine events.
    The COTP anticipates minimal impact on vessel traffic due to this 
proposed regulation. However, the proposed temporary special local 
regulation is deemed necessary for the safeguard of life and property 
within the COTP Mobile zone.

D. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary special local 
regulation for a portion of Robertson Lake & O'Leary Lake, Moss Point, 
MS, enclosed by a bounded area starting at a point on the shore at 
approximately 30[deg] 25' 11.0'' N, 088 32' 24.4'' W, then east to 
30[deg] 25' 12.9'' N, 088 32' 18.0'' W, then south to 30[deg] 24' 
50.9'' N, 088 32' 09.6'' W, then west following the shore line back to 
the starting point at 30[deg] 25' 11.0'' N, 088 32' 24.4'' W. This 
temporary rule will safeguard life and property in this area. Entry 
into, transiting or anchoring in this zone is prohibited to all vessels 
not registered with the sponsor as participants or not part of the 
regatta patrol, unless specifically authorized by the COTP Mobile or a 
designated representative. They may be contacted on VHF-FM Channel 16 
or through Coast Guard Sector Mobile at 251-441-5976.
    The COTP Mobile or a designated representative will inform the 
public through broadcast notice to mariners of changes in the effective 
period for the proposed temporary special local regulation. This 
proposed rule will be effective from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on 
April 27-28, 2013.

E. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and

[[Page 9868]]

executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on a number of these statutes or executive orders.

1. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This proposed 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.
    The temporary special local regulation listed in this proposed rule 
will only restrict vessel traffic from entering or transiting a small 
portion of Robertson Lake & O'Leary Lake, Moss Point, MS. The effect of 
this regulation will not be significant for several reasons: (1) This 
rule will only affect vessel traffic for a short duration; (2) vessels 
may request permission from the COTP to transit through the regulated 
area; and (3) the impacts on routine navigation are expected to be 
minimal. Notifications to the marine community will be made through 
Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. These 
notifications will allow the public to plan operations around the 
affected area.

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 
proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. This proposed rule will affect 
the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners 
or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the affected 
portion of the Robertson Lake & O'Leary Lake during the high speed boat 
races. This proposed temporary special local regulation will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
for the following reasons. The regulated area is limited in size, is of 
short duration and vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP 
Mobile or a designated representative to enter or transit through the 
regulated area.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed 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 proposed 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 want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed rule. If the proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate 
against small entities that question or complain about this proposed 
rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

    This proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed rule would not 
result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this proposed 
rule elsewhere in this preamble.

8. Taking of Private Property

    This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 From Environmental Health Risks

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, 
Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks. This proposed 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 proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments, because it would 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 proposed rule 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we 
did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

14. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland 
Security Management Directive 023-01

[[Page 9869]]

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 made a preliminary determination that this 
action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or 
cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This 
proposed rule involves safety for the public and is not expected to 
result in any significant adverse environmental impact as described in 
NEPA. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under 
paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. A 
preliminary 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 proposed rule.

List of Subjects 33 CFR Part 100

    (6) Any spectator vessel may anchor outside the regulated area, but 
may not anchor in, block, or loiter in a navigable channel. Spectator 
vessels may be moored to a waterfront facility within the regulated 
area in such a way that they shall not interfere with the progress of 
the event. Such mooring must be complete at least 30 minutes prior to 
the establishment of the regulated area and remain moored through the 
duration of the event.
    (7) The Patrol Commander may terminate the event or the operation 
of any vessel at any time it is deemed necessary for the protection of 
life or property.
    (8) The Patrol Commander will terminate enforcement of the special
