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 establishing a temporary safety zone. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information On July 30, 2012, a Temporary Final Rule (TFR), Safety Zone; Seafair Blue Angels Air Show Performance, Seattle, WA, was published. The TFR increased the size of the preexisting safety zone. On October 15, 2012, an NPRM, Safety Zone, Seafair Blue Angels Air Show Performance, Seattle, WA, was published. The Coast Guard received 2 comments pertaining to the NPRM, submitted via regulations.gov, and received 0 requests for public meeting. The comments received were in favor of the rule outlined in the NPRM and therefore no changes were made to the rule. erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES B. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard is amending this safety zone to ensure the safety of the maritime public and participants during the Seattle Blue Angels Air Show. The size of the safety zone in 33 CFR 165.1319 has been determined to be inadequate to accommodate the anticipated flight pattern of the Blue Angels. This rule extends the northern boundary line of the existing regulation northward by 500 yards, and updates coordinates to provide a zone of adequate size. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule The Coast Guard received 2 comments with regard to the preceding NPRM of this Final Rule. Both comments supported the decision to increase the safety zone size of the rule to ensure adequate safety of the maritime public and participants during the Air Show. As a result no changes were made to the rule. As described in 69 FR 35249–01, the Coast Guard established a final rule for the annual Blue Angels Air Show Performance. The purpose of this rule is to protect the public from dangers including excessive noise and falling objects from any potential accidents caused by these low-flying military aircraft. The regulation contained in 33 CFR 165.1319 encompasses ‘‘all waters of Lake Washington, Washington State, enclosed by the following points: Near the termination of Roanoke Way 47°35′44″ N, 122°14′47″ W; thence to VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:27 Feb 22, 2013 Jkt 229001 47°35′48″ N, 122°15′45″ W; thence to 47°36′02.1″ N, 122°15′50.2″ W; thence to 47°35′56.6″ N, 122°16′29.2″ W; thence to 47°35′42″ N, 122°16′24″ W; thence to the east side of the entrance to the west highrise of the Interstate 90 bridge; thence westerly along the south side of the bridge to the shoreline on the western terminus of the bridge; thence southerly along the shoreline to Andrews Bay at 47°33′06″ N, 122°15′32″ W; thence northeast along the shoreline of Bailey Peninsula to its northeast point at 47°33′44″ N, 122°15′04″ W; thence easterly along the east-west line drawn tangent to Bailey Peninsula; thence northerly along the shore of Mercer Island to the point of origin. [Datum: NAD 1983]’’ However, the participating aircraft have a flight pattern that will extend past the northern boundary of the regulation in 33 CFR 156.1319. As such, an extension is necessary in order to protect the maritime public and participants. This rule amends the Seafair Blue Angels Air Show Performance Safety Zone, extending the northern boundary starting at point 47°36′17.28″ N, 122°16′49.44″ W; thence west to point 47°36′17.28″ N, 122°16′58.56″ W; thence south along the shoreline to point 47°35′25.44″ N, 122°17′9.48″ W; thence east along the I–90 bridge to point 47°35′23.16″ N, 122°15′17.1″ W; thence north east along the shoreline to point 47°35′45.3″ N, 122°14′49.44″ W; thence north back to the point of origin. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 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. The Coast Guard bases this finding on the fact that the safety zone will be in place for a limited period of time and vessel traffic will be able to transit around the safety zone. Maritime traffic may also request permission to transit through the zone from the PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 12599 (COTP), Puget Sound or a Designated Representative. 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 received 0 comments from the Small Business Administration on this rule. 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 may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to operate in the waters covered by the safety zone while it is in effect. The rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because the safety zone would be in place for limited periods of time and maritime traffic would still be able to transit around the safety zone. Maritime traffic may also request permission to transit through the zone from the COTP, Puget Sound or a Designated Representative. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. Law 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.

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 INTFORMATION 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. erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:27 Feb 22, 2013 Jkt 229001 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 amendment of a safety zone. 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

    On July 30, 2012, a Temporary Final Rule (TFR), Safety Zone; 
Seafair Blue Angels Air Show Performance, Seattle, WA, was published. 
The TFR increased the size of the preexisting safety zone. On October 
15, 2012, an NPRM, Safety Zone, Seafair Blue Angels Air Show 
Performance, Seattle, WA, was published. The Coast Guard received 2 
comments pertaining to the NPRM, submitted via regulations.gov, and 
received 0 requests for public meeting. The comments received were in 
favor of the rule outlined in the NPRM and therefore no changes were 
made to the rule.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The Coast Guard is amending this safety zone to ensure the safety 
of the maritime public and participants during the Seattle Blue Angels 
Air Show. The size of the safety zone in 33 CFR 165.1319 has been 
determined to be inadequate to accommodate the anticipated flight 
pattern of the Blue Angels. This rule extends the northern boundary 
line of the existing regulation northward by 500 yards, and updates 
coordinates to provide a zone of adequate size.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard received 2 comments with regard to the preceding 
NPRM of this Final Rule. Both comments supported the decision to 
increase the safety zone size of the rule to ensure adequate safety of 
the maritime public and participants during the Air Show. As a result 
no changes were made to the rule.
    As described in 69 FR 35249-01, the Coast Guard established a final 
rule for the annual Blue Angels Air Show Performance. The purpose of 
this rule is to protect the public from dangers including excessive 
noise and falling objects from any potential accidents caused by these 
low-flying military aircraft. The regulation contained in 33 CFR 
165.1319 encompasses ``all waters of Lake Washington, Washington State, 
enclosed by the following points: Near the termination of Roanoke Way 
47[deg]35'44'' N, 122[deg]14'47'' W; thence to 47[deg]35'48'' N, 
122[deg]15'45'' W; thence to 47[deg]36'02.1'' N, 122[deg]15'50.2'' W; 
thence to 47[deg]35'56.6'' N, 122[deg]16'29.2'' W; thence to 
47[deg]35'42'' N, 122[deg]16'24'' W; thence to the east side of the 
entrance to the west highrise of the Interstate 90 bridge; thence 
westerly along the south side of the bridge to the shoreline on the 
western terminus of the bridge; thence southerly along the shoreline to 
Andrews Bay at 47[deg]33'06'' N, 122[deg]15'32'' W; thence northeast 
along the shoreline of Bailey Peninsula to its northeast point at 
47[deg]33'44'' N, 122[deg]15'04'' W; thence easterly along the east-
west line drawn tangent to Bailey Peninsula; thence northerly along the 
shore of Mercer Island to the point of origin. [Datum: NAD 1983]''
    However, the participating aircraft have a flight pattern that will 
extend past the northern boundary of the regulation in 33 CFR 156.1319. 
As such, an extension is necessary in order to protect the maritime 
public and participants.
    This rule amends the Seafair Blue Angels Air Show Performance 
Safety Zone, extending the northern boundary starting at point 
47[deg]36'17.28'' N, 122[deg]16'49.44'' W; thence west to point 
47[deg]36'17.28'' N, 122[deg]16'58.56'' W; thence south along the 
shoreline to point 47[deg]35'25.44'' N, 122[deg]17'9.48'' W; thence 
east along the I-90 bridge to point 47[deg]35'23.16'' N, 
122[deg]15'17.1'' W; thence north east along the shoreline to point 
47[deg]35'45.3'' N, 122[deg]14'49.44'' W; thence north back to the 
point of origin.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
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. The Coast Guard bases 
this finding on the fact that the safety zone will be in place for a 
limited period of time and vessel traffic will be able to transit 
around the safety zone. Maritime traffic may also request permission to 
transit through the zone from the (COTP), Puget Sound or a Designated 
Representative.

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 received 0 comments from the Small Business 
Administration on this rule. 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 may be small entities: the owners and 
operators of vessels intending to operate in the waters covered by the 
safety zone while it is in effect. The rule would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
because the safety zone would be in place for limited periods of time 
and maritime traffic would still be able to transit around the safety 
zone. Maritime traffic may also request permission to transit through 
the zone from the COTP, Puget Sound or a Designated Representative.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. Law 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 
INTFORMATION 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 amendment of a safety zone. 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.
