Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of special local regulations and safety zones established for recurring marine events and fireworks displays at various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rulemaking proposes to revise Coast Guard regulations by adding 15 new annual recurring marine events, fireworks displays and revising event date(s) and coordinates for 31 previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This proposed rule would also delete 21 previously listed marine events, fireworks displays and corresponding regulated areas that no longer occur. These regulations would apply to all events listed in the table attached to the regulation, and include events such as regattas, power boat races, marine parades, swimming races and fireworks displays. Special local regulations and safety zones are being proposed to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during these events, reduce the Coast Guard’s administrative workload and expedite public notification of events. Entry into or movement within these proposed regulated areas during the enforcement periods is prohibited without approval of the appropriate Captain of the Port. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before April 1, 2013. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number using any one of the following methods: srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 Feb 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 (1) Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov.

E:\FR\FM\28FEP1.SGM 28FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 40 / Thursday, February 28, 2013 / Proposed Rules B. Regulatory History and Information The special local regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 were amended in the January 19, 2012, issue of the Federal Register (77 FR 2632). The purpose of the rulemaking was to revise the TABLE to 33 CFR 100.501 by adding new annual recurring marine events, modifying event date(s) for previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District; and delete previously listed marine events and corresponding regulated areas that no longer occur. The safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506 were amended in the March 23, 2012, issue of the Federal Register (77 FR 16932). The Coast Guard revised the list of permanent safety zones in the TABLE to 33 CFR 165.506, for recurring fireworks displays, by adding new locations, deleting previously established locations and modifying previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. C. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of permanent special local No. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ............. ............. ............. ............. ............. ............. ............. regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 and safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506, established for recurring marine events and fireworks displays at various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. The Fifth Coast Guard District is comprised of the land areas and U.S. navigable waters adjacent to North Carolina, Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland, Delaware and portions of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. For a detailed description of the geographical area of the district and each Coast Guard Sector—Captain of the Port Zone, please see 33 CFR 3.25. Special Local Regulations Under 33 CFR 100.35, the Coast Guard District Commander has authority to promulgate certain special local regulations deemed necessary to ensure the safety of life on the navigable waters immediately before, during, and immediately after an approved regatta or marine parade. Currently there are 59 special local regulations that are established and enforced at various periods throughout the year that are held on an annual basis. This proposed rule will decrease the total number of special local regulations to 51 locations for marine events within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This regulation currently includes events such as sailing regattas, power boat races, swim races, holiday parades, crew and other paddle craft races. The Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of special local regulations at 33 CFR 100.501, established for various marine events, by adding 7 new annual recurring events and revising 13 previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rule also deletes 15 previously listed marine events and corresponding regulated areas that are no longer occurring. The Coast Guard proposes to revise regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by adding 7 new marine event locations to the permanent special local regulations listed in this section. The new special local regulations are listed in the following table, including reference by section as printed in the Table to § 100.501.

Holidays in the City, Norfolk Festevents, Ltd. In the past, the Coast Guard regulated marine events by creating individual special local regulations on a case by case basis. Most of these events required only the establishment of a regulated area and assignment of a patrol commander to ensure safety. Issuing individual, annual special local regulations has imposed a significant administrative burden on the Coast Guard. Additionally, for the majority of these events, the Coast Guard does not receive notification of the marine event, or important details of the event are not finalized by event organizers, with sufficient time to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking and final rule before the event date. The Coast Guard must therefore issue temporary final rules that sometimes are completed only days before the event. This results in delayed notification to the public, potentially placing the public and event participants at risk. This proposed rule would significantly relieve the administrative burden on the Coast Guard, and at the same time allow the sponsor of the event and the Coast Guard to notify the public of these events in a timely manner. The public would be provided with notice of events through the table attached to this regulation. This table lists each recurring marine event that VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 Feb 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 Specified waters of Chesapeake Bay near Cape Charles, Virginia.

Specified waters of Western Branch, Elizabeth River, near City Park, Portsmouth, Virginia. Specified waters of Willoughby Bay, near Norfolk Virginia. Specified waters of Southern Branch, Elizabeth River, Portsmouth, Virginia. Specified waters of Elizabeth River and its southern and eastern branches in the vicinity of Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia. may be regulated by the Coast Guard, and indicates the sponsor, as well as the date(s) and location of the event. Because the dates and locations of these events may change slightly from year to year, the specific information on each event, including the exact dates, specific areas, and description of the regulated area, would be provided to the public through a Local Notice to Mariners published before the event, as well as through Broadcast Notice to Mariners. This table would also be updated by the Coast Guard periodically to add new recurring events, update listed events to ensure accurate information is provided and remove events that no longer occur. Based on the nature of marine events, large number of participants and spectators, and event locations, the Coast Guard has determined that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to participants or waterway users if normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the event. Possible hazards include risks of participant injury or death resulting from near or actual contact with non-participant vessels traversing through the regulated areas. In order to protect the safety of all waterway users including event participants and spectators, this proposed rule would establish special local regulations for the time and location of each marine event. PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 This proposed rule prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The designated ‘‘Patrol Commander’’ includes Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or petty officer who has been designated by the Captain of the Port to act on their behalf. Onscene patrol commander may be augmented by local, State or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the Coast Guard. Safety Zones Under 33 CFR 165.23, the Coast Guard District Commander has authority to promulgate certain safety zones deemed necessary to ensure the safety of life on the navigable waters immediately before, during, and immediately after an approved fireworks displays. In this rule the Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of permanent safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506, established for fireworks displays at various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. For a description of the geographical area of the Fifth District and subordinate Coast Guard Sectors— Captain of the Port Zones, please see 33 E:\FR\FM\28FEP1.SGM 28FEP1 13579 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 40 / Thursday, February 28, 2013 / Proposed Rules CFR 3.25. Currently there are 74 permanent safety zones established for fireworks displays within the geographic boundaries of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rule will increase the total number of permanent safety zones to 76 locations for fireworks displays within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District.

Previously, a temporary safety zone was PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 established on an emergency basis for each display. This limited the E:\FR\FM\28FEP1.SGM 28FEP1 srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 13580 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 40 / Thursday, February 28, 2013 / Proposed Rules opportunity for public comment. Establishing permanent safety zones through notice and comment rulemaking provides the public the opportunity to comment on the safety zone locations, size, and length of time the zones will be enforced. Each year organizations in the Fifth Coast Guard District sponsor fireworks displays in the same general location and time period. Each event uses a barge or an on-shore site near the shoreline as the fireworks launch platform. A safety zone is used to control vessel movement within a specified distance surrounding the launch platforms to ensure the safety of persons and property. Coast Guard personnel on scene may allow boaters within the safety zone if conditions permit. The Coast Guard would publish notices in the Federal Register if an event sponsor reported a substantive change to the listed event venue or date. In the case of inclement weather the event usually will be conducted on the day following the date listed in the Table to § 165.506. Coast Guard Captains of the Port would give notice of the enforcement of each safety zone by all appropriate means to provide the widest dissemination of notice among the affected segments of the public. This would include publication in the Local Notice to Mariners and Marine Information Broadcasts. Marine information and facsimile broadcasts may also be made for these events, beginning 24 to 48 hours before the event. Fireworks barges or launch sites on land used in the locations stated in this rulemaking would also display a sign labeled ‘‘FIREWORKS—DANGER— STAY AWAY’’. The sign would be affixed to the port and starboard side of the barge or mounted on a post 3 feet above ground level when on land and in close proximity to the shoreline facing the water. This sign provides on scene notice that the safety zone is or will be enforced on that day. The sign will be diamond shaped, 4 foot by 4 foot with a 3-inch orange retro-reflective border. The word ‘‘DANGER’’ shall be 10-inch black block letters centered on the sign with the words ‘‘FIREWORKS’’ and ‘‘STAY AWAY’’ in 6 inch black block letters placed above and below the word ‘‘DANGER’’ respectively on a white background. There would also be a Coast Guard patrol vessel on scene 30 minutes before the display is scheduled to start until 30 minutes after its completion to enforce the safety zone. The enforcement period for these proposed safety zones is from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. local time. However, vessels may enter, remain in, or transit through these safety zones during this timeframe VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 Feb 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 if authorized by the Captain of the Port or designated Coast Guard patrol personnel on scene, as provided for in 33 CFR 165.23. This rule is being proposed to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the events and to give the marine community the opportunity to comment on the proposed zone locations, size, and length of time the zones will be active. D. Discussion of Proposed Rule This proposed rule would apply to each event listed in the attached tables to this rule. Events listed in the tables are events that recur annually in the Fifth Coast Guard District. The tables provide the event name and sponsor, as well as an approximate date and location of the event. For each event listed in the table, an event patrol, with a Patrol Commander in charge, may be assigned. The Patrol Commander may control the movement of all vessels in the regulated area(s). When hailed or signaled by an official patrol vessel, a vessel in these areas would be required to immediately comply with the directions given. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both. The Coast Guard Patrol Commander may terminate the event, or the operation of any vessel participating in the event, at any time it is deemed necessary for the protection of life or property. Only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol vessels would be allowed to enter a regulated area. All persons and vessels not registered with the event sponsor as participants or official patrol vessels are considered spectators. Spectators may not enter the regulated area and may be confined to a designated spectator area to view the event. Spectators may contact the Coast Guard Patrol Commander to request permission to pass through the regulated area. If permission is granted, spectators would be required to pass directly through the regulated area at safe speed and without loitering. E. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and 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 PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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. We expect the economic impact of this proposed rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This finding is based on the short amount of time that vessels would be restricted from regulated areas, and the small size of these areas that are typically positioned away from high vessel traffic zones. Vessels would not be precluded from getting underway, or mooring at any piers or marinas currently located in the vicinity of the proposed regulated areas. Advance notifications would also be made to the local maritime community by issuing Local Notice to Mariners, Marine information and facsimile broadcasts so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. Notifications to the public for most events will usually be made by local newspapers, radio and TV stations. The Coast Guard anticipates that these special local regulated areas and safety zones will only be enforced 1 to 3 times per year. 2. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered the impact of this proposed rule on small entities. 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 rule will affect the following entities some of which may be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the proposed regulated areas during the times these zones are enforced. These proposed regulated areas and safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The Coast Guard will ensure that small entities are able to operate in the areas where events are occurring to the extent possible while ensuring the safety of event participants and spectators. The enforcement period will be short in duration and, in many of the areas, vessels can transit safely around the regulated area. Generally, blanket permission to enter, remain in, or transit through these regulated areas will be given except during the period that the Coast Guard patrol vessel is present. Before the enforcement period, we will issue maritime advisories widely. E:\FR\FM\28FEP1.SGM 28FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 40 / Thursday, February 28, 2013 / Proposed Rules 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 want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed 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. 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 determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 Feb 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this 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 would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 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. 13581 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 that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This proposed rule involves implementation of regulations within 33 CFR part 100 that apply to organized marine events on the navigable waters of the United States that may have potential for negative impact on the safety or other interest of waterway users and shore side activities in the event area. The category of water activities includes but is not limited to sail boat regattas, boat parades, power boat racing, swimming events, crew racing, and sail board racing. This section of the rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are not required for this section of the rule. This proposed rule involves implementation of regulations at 33 CFR part 165 that establish safety zones on navigable waters of the United States for fireworks events. These safety zones are enforced for the duration of fireworks display events. The fireworks are launched from or immediately adjacent to navigable waters of the United States. The category of activities includes fireworks launched from barges or near the shoreline that generally rely on the use of navigable waters as a safety buffer. This section of the rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) 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 13. Technical Standards This proposed rule does not use technical standards.

[Docket Number USCG-2012-0970]
RIN 1625-AA00, AA08


Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Marine 
Events and Fireworks Displays Within the Fifth Coast Guard District

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of special local 
regulations and safety zones established for recurring marine events 
and fireworks displays at various locations within the geographic 
boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This rulemaking proposes to 
revise Coast Guard regulations by adding 15 new annual recurring marine 
events, fireworks displays and revising event date(s) and coordinates 
for 31 previously established locations within the geographic boundary 
of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This proposed rule would also delete 
21 previously listed marine events, fireworks displays and 
corresponding regulated areas that no longer occur. These regulations 
would apply to all events listed in the table attached to the 
regulation, and include events such as regattas, power boat races, 
marine parades, swimming races and fireworks displays. Special local 
regulations and safety zones are being proposed to provide for the 
safety of life on navigable waters during these events, reduce the 
Coast Guard's administrative workload and expedite public notification 
of events. Entry into or movement within these proposed regulated areas 
during the enforcement periods is prohibited without approval of the 
appropriate Captain of the Port.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before April 1, 2013.

B. Regulatory History and Information

    The special local regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 were amended in the 
January 19, 2012, issue of the Federal Register (77 FR 2632). The 
purpose of the rulemaking was to revise the TABLE to 33 CFR 100.501 by 
adding new annual recurring marine events, modifying event date(s) for 
previously established locations within the geographic boundary of the 
Fifth Coast Guard District; and delete previously listed marine events 
and corresponding regulated areas that no longer occur.
    The safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506 were amended in the March 23, 
2012, issue of the Federal Register (77 FR 16932). The Coast Guard 
revised the list of permanent safety zones in the TABLE to 33 CFR 
165.506, for recurring fireworks displays, by adding new locations, 
deleting previously established locations and modifying previously 
established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast 
Guard District.

C. Basis and Purpose

    The Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of permanent special 
local regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 and safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506, 
established for recurring marine events and fireworks displays at 
various locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast 
Guard District. The Fifth Coast Guard District is comprised of the land 
areas and U.S. navigable waters adjacent to North Carolina, Virginia, 
District of Columbia, Maryland, Delaware and portions of Pennsylvania 
and New Jersey. For a detailed description of the geographical area of 
the district and each Coast Guard Sector--Captain of the Port Zone, 
please see 33 CFR 3.25.

Special Local Regulations

    Under 33 CFR 100.35, the Coast Guard District Commander has 
authority to promulgate certain special local regulations deemed 
necessary to ensure the safety of life on the navigable waters 
immediately before, during, and immediately after an approved regatta 
or marine parade. Currently there are 59 special local regulations that 
are established and enforced at various periods throughout the year 
that are held on an annual basis. This proposed rule will decrease the 
total number of special local regulations to 51 locations for marine 
events within the boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. This 
regulation currently includes events such as sailing regattas, power 
boat races, swim races, holiday parades, crew and other paddle craft 
races. The Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of special local 
regulations at 33 CFR 100.501, established for various marine events, 
by adding 7 new annual recurring events and revising 13 previously 
established locations within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast 
Guard District. This rule also deletes 15 previously listed marine 
events and corresponding regulated areas that are no longer occurring.
    The Coast Guard proposes to revise regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by 
adding 7 new marine event locations to the permanent special local 
regulations listed in this section. The new special local regulations 
are listed in the following table, including reference by section as 
printed in the Table to Sec.  100.501.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the past, the Coast Guard regulated marine events by creating 
individual special local regulations on a case by case basis. Most of 
these events required only the establishment of a regulated area and 
assignment of a patrol commander to ensure safety. Issuing individual, 
annual special local regulations has imposed a significant 
administrative burden on the Coast Guard.
    Additionally, for the majority of these events, the Coast Guard 
does not receive notification of the marine event, or important details 
of the event are not finalized by event organizers, with sufficient 
time to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking and final rule before 
the event date. The Coast Guard must therefore issue temporary final 
rules that sometimes are completed only days before the event. This 
results in delayed notification to the public, potentially placing the 
public and event participants at risk.
    This proposed rule would significantly relieve the administrative 
burden on the Coast Guard, and at the same time allow the sponsor of 
the event and the Coast Guard to notify the public of these events in a 
timely manner. The public would be provided with notice of events 
through the table attached to this regulation. This table lists each 
recurring marine event that may be regulated by the Coast Guard, and 
indicates the sponsor, as well as the date(s) and location of the 
event. Because the dates and locations of these events may change 
slightly from year to year, the specific information on each event, 
including the exact dates, specific areas, and description of the 
regulated area, would be provided to the public through a Local Notice 
to Mariners published before the event, as well as through Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners. This table would also be updated by the Coast Guard 
periodically to add new recurring events, update listed events to 
ensure accurate information is provided and remove events that no 
longer occur.
    Based on the nature of marine events, large number of participants 
and spectators, and event locations, the Coast Guard has determined 
that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to participants 
or waterway users if normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the 
event. Possible hazards include risks of participant injury or death 
resulting from near or actual contact with non-participant vessels 
traversing through the regulated areas. In order to protect the safety 
of all waterway users including event participants and spectators, this 
proposed rule would establish special local regulations for the time 
and location of each marine event.
    This proposed rule prevents vessels from entering, transiting, 
mooring or anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated 
areas during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the 
Captain of the Port, or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The 
designated ``Patrol Commander'' includes Coast Guard commissioned, 
warrant, or petty officer who has been designated by the Captain of the 
Port to act on their behalf. On-scene patrol commander may be augmented 
by local, State or Federal officials authorized to act in support of 
the Coast Guard.

Safety Zones

    Under 33 CFR 165.23, the Coast Guard District Commander has 
authority to promulgate certain safety zones deemed necessary to ensure 
the safety of life on the navigable waters immediately before, during, 
and immediately after an approved fireworks displays. In this rule the 
Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of permanent safety zones at 33 
CFR 165.506, established for fireworks displays at various locations 
within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District. For a 
description of the geographical area of the Fifth District and 
subordinate Coast Guard Sectors--Captain of the Port Zones, please see 
33

[[Page 13579]]

CFR 3.25. Currently there are 74 permanent safety zones established for 
fireworks displays within the geographic boundaries of the Fifth Coast 
Guard District. This rule will increase the total number of permanent 
safety zones to 76 locations for fireworks displays within the boundary 
of the Fifth Coast Guard District. The Coast Guard proposes to revise 
the list of permanent safety zones at 33 CFR 165.506, established for 
fireworks displays, by adding 8 new locations, modifying 18 previously 
established locations and deleting 6 previously established locations 
within the geographic boundary of the Fifth Coast Guard District
    This rule proposes to add 8 new safety zone locations to the 
permanent safety zones listed in 33 CFR 165.506. The new safety zones 
are listed in the following table, including reference by section as 
printed in the Table to Sec.  165.506.

                                                                             Virginia.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Coast Guard typically receives numerous applications for 
fireworks displays in these general areas. Previously, a temporary 
safety zone was established on an emergency basis for each display. 
This limited the

[[Page 13580]]

opportunity for public comment. Establishing permanent safety zones 
through notice and comment rulemaking provides the public the 
opportunity to comment on the safety zone locations, size, and length 
of time the zones will be enforced.
    Each year organizations in the Fifth Coast Guard District sponsor 
fireworks displays in the same general location and time period. Each 
event uses a barge or an on-shore site near the shoreline as the 
fireworks launch platform. A safety zone is used to control vessel 
movement within a specified distance surrounding the launch platforms 
to ensure the safety of persons and property. Coast Guard personnel on 
scene may allow boaters within the safety zone if conditions permit.
    The Coast Guard would publish notices in the Federal Register if an 
event sponsor reported a substantive change to the listed event venue 
or date. In the case of inclement weather the event usually will be 
conducted on the day following the date listed in the Table to Sec.  
165.506. Coast Guard Captains of the Port would give notice of the 
enforcement of each safety zone by all appropriate means to provide the 
widest dissemination of notice among the affected segments of the 
public. This would include publication in the Local Notice to Mariners 
and Marine Information Broadcasts. Marine information and facsimile 
broadcasts may also be made for these events, beginning 24 to 48 hours 
before the event. Fireworks barges or launch sites on land used in the 
locations stated in this rulemaking would also display a sign labeled 
``FIREWORKS--DANGER--STAY AWAY''. The sign would be affixed to the port 
and starboard side of the barge or mounted on a post 3 feet above 
ground level when on land and in close proximity to the shoreline 
facing the water. This sign provides on scene notice that the safety 
zone is or will be enforced on that day. The sign will be diamond 
shaped, 4 foot by 4 foot with a 3-inch orange retro-reflective border. 
The word ``DANGER'' shall be 10-inch black block letters centered on 
the sign with the words ``FIREWORKS'' and ``STAY AWAY'' in 6 inch black 
block letters placed above and below the word ``DANGER'' respectively 
on a white background. There would also be a Coast Guard patrol vessel 
on scene 30 minutes before the display is scheduled to start until 30 
minutes after its completion to enforce the safety zone.
    The enforcement period for these proposed safety zones is from 5:30 
p.m. to 1 a.m. local time. However, vessels may enter, remain in, or 
transit through these safety zones during this timeframe if authorized 
by the Captain of the Port or designated Coast Guard patrol personnel 
on scene, as provided for in 33 CFR 165.23.
    This rule is being proposed to provide for the safety of life on 
navigable waters during the events and to give the marine community the 
opportunity to comment on the proposed zone locations, size, and length 
of time the zones will be active.

D. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    This proposed rule would apply to each event listed in the attached 
tables to this rule. Events listed in the tables are events that recur 
annually in the Fifth Coast Guard District. The tables provide the 
event name and sponsor, as well as an approximate date and location of 
the event.
    For each event listed in the table, an event patrol, with a Patrol 
Commander in charge, may be assigned. The Patrol Commander may control 
the movement of all vessels in the regulated area(s). When hailed or 
signaled by an official patrol vessel, a vessel in these areas would be 
required to immediately comply with the directions given. Failure to do 
so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to 
comply, or both. The Coast Guard Patrol Commander may terminate the 
event, or the operation of any vessel participating in the event, at 
any time it is deemed necessary for the protection of life or property. 
Only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol 
vessels would be allowed to enter a regulated area. All persons and 
vessels not registered with the event sponsor as participants or 
official patrol vessels are considered spectators. Spectators may not 
enter the regulated area and may be confined to a designated spectator 
area to view the event. Spectators may contact the Coast Guard Patrol 
Commander to request permission to pass through the regulated area. If 
permission is granted, spectators would be required to pass directly 
through the regulated area at safe speed and without loitering.

E. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on a number of these statutes and 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.
    We expect the economic impact of this proposed rule to be so 
minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This finding 
is based on the short amount of time that vessels would be restricted 
from regulated areas, and the small size of these areas that are 
typically positioned away from high vessel traffic zones. Vessels would 
not be precluded from getting underway, or mooring at any piers or 
marinas currently located in the vicinity of the proposed regulated 
areas. Advance notifications would also be made to the local maritime 
community by issuing Local Notice to Mariners, Marine information and 
facsimile broadcasts so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. 
Notifications to the public for most events will usually be made by 
local newspapers, radio and TV stations. The Coast Guard anticipates 
that these special local regulated areas and safety zones will only be 
enforced 1 to 3 times per year.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered the impact of this proposed rule on small entities. 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 rule will affect the following entities some of 
which may be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels 
intending to transit or anchor in the proposed regulated areas during 
the times these zones are enforced.
    These proposed regulated areas and safety zones will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
for the following reasons: The Coast Guard will ensure that small 
entities are able to operate in the areas where events are occurring to 
the extent possible while ensuring the safety of event participants and 
spectators. The enforcement period will be short in duration and, in 
many of the areas, vessels can transit safely around the regulated 
area. Generally, blanket permission to enter, remain in, or transit 
through these regulated areas will be given except during the period 
that the Coast Guard patrol vessel is present. Before the enforcement 
period, we will issue maritime advisories widely.

[[Page 13581]]

    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 want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed 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. 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 
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 proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this 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 
would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that 
might 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 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 that do not individually or cumulatively have a 
significant effect on the human environment.
    This proposed rule involves implementation of regulations within 33 
CFR part 100 that apply to organized marine events on the navigable 
waters of the United States that may have potential for negative impact 
on the safety or other interest of waterway users and shore side 
activities in the event area. The category of water activities includes 
but is not limited to sail boat regattas, boat parades, power boat 
racing, swimming events, crew racing, and sail board racing. This 
section of the rule is categorically excluded from further review under 
paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An 
environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a 
Categorical Exclusion Determination are not required for this section 
of the rule.
    This proposed rule involves implementation of regulations at 33 CFR 
part 165 that establish safety zones on navigable waters of the United 
States for fireworks events. These safety zones are enforced for the 
duration of fireworks display events. The fireworks are launched from 
or immediately adjacent to navigable waters of the United States. The 
category of activities includes fireworks launched from barges or near 
the shoreline that generally rely on the use of navigable waters as a 
safety buffer. This section of the rule is categorically excluded from 
further review under paragraph 34(g) 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.
