SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information On January 9, 2013, the USCG published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) entitled, ‘‘Special Local Regulations; Stuart Sailfish Regatta, Indian River; Stuart, FL’’ in the Federal Register (78 FR 1792). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. B. Basis and Purpose From Friday, April 19, 2013, until Sunday, April 21, 2013, Stuart Sailfish Regatta, Inc. will be hosting the Stuart Sailfish Regatta, a series of high-speed boat races. The races will be held on the Indian River located northeast of Ernest F. Lyons Bridge and south of Joes Cove, in Stuart, Florida. Approximately 40–80 high-speed power boats will be participating in the event. It is anticipated that at least 100 spectator vessels will be present during the race. The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish special local regulations: 33 U.S.C. 1233. The purpose of the rule is to insure safety of life on navigable waters of the United States during the Stuart Sailfish Regatta. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule The Coast Guard did not receive any comments to the proposed rule. Two changes were made to the regulatory text. First, the published NPRM included an overlap between the buffer zone and the spectator area. This has been corrected so that these two areas PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 18475 are in fact defined and separate. Second, the paragraph pertaining to the spectator area was amended to further explain the regulation for that area. Entrance into the spectator area will be regulated and all persons and vessels are prohibited from entering the spectator area unless and until given permission by the Captain of the Port Miami or designated representative via radio on channel 16. This temporary final rule establishes a special local regulation that will encompass certain waters of the Indian River located northeast of Ernest F. Lyons Bridge and south of Joes Cove, in Stuart, Florida. The special local regulation will be enforced daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. from April 19, 2013 until April 21, 2013. The special local regulation consists of the following three areas: (1) A race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the high-speed boat races, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; (2) a buffer zone around the race area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels enforcing the buffer zone, or authorized participants or vessels transiting to the race area, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; and (3) a spectator area. Persons and vessels may request authorization by contacting the Captain of the Port Miami by telephone at (305) 535–4472, or a designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16, to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the race area or the buffer zone. If authorization is granted by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will provide notice of the regulated areas by Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners and on-scene designated representatives. 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 E:\FR\FM\27MRR1.SGM 27MRR1 18476 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 59 / Wednesday, March 27, 2013 / Rules and Regulations erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 economic impact of this rule is not significant for the following reasons: (1) The special local regulations will be enforced for a maximum of 8 hours a day for three days; (2) nonparticipant persons and vessels may enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated areas during their respective enforcement periods if authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative; (3) non-participant persons and vessels not able to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated areas without authorization from the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative may operate in the surrounding areas during the respective enforcement periods; and (4) the Coast Guard will provide advance notification of the special local regulations to the local maritime community by Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 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 no 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 may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within any of the regulated areas during the respective enforcement period. For the reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 104– 121), we want to assist small entities in VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:14 Mar 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 understanding this rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency’s responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1– 888–REG–FAIR (1–888–734–3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 4. Collection of Information This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). 5. Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism. 6. Protest Activities The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels. 7. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or Tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. 9. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. 10. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. 11. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. 12. Energy Effects This action is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. 13. Technical Standards This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f). Due to potential environmental issues, we conducted an environmental assessment last year for both the issuance of the marine event permit and the establishment of this special local regulation. The same environmental E:\FR\FM\27MRR1.SGM 27MRR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 59 / Wednesday, March 27, 2013 / Rules and Regulations assessment is being used for this year’s event as it is substantially similar in all aspects and therefore the potential effects and alternatives would remain unchanged. Additionally, a supplemental environmental assessment was conducted to address changes to the annual reoccurring event. After completing the supplemental environmental assessment for the issuance of the marine event permit, and the establishment of these special local regulations, we have determined these actions will not significantly affect the human environment. This rule involves the creation of a special local regulation in conjunction with a regatta or marine parade, and is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. The supplemental environmental assessment, environmental assessment, and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) 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.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    On January 9, 2013, the USCG published a Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking (NPRM) entitled, ``Special Local Regulations; Stuart 
Sailfish Regatta, Indian River; Stuart, FL'' in the Federal Register 
(78 FR 1792). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public 
meeting was requested, and none was held.

B. Basis and Purpose

    From Friday, April 19, 2013, until Sunday, April 21, 2013, Stuart 
Sailfish Regatta, Inc. will be hosting the Stuart Sailfish Regatta, a 
series of high-speed boat races. The races will be held on the Indian 
River located northeast of Ernest F. Lyons Bridge and south of Joes 
Cove, in Stuart, Florida. Approximately 40-80 high-speed power boats 
will be participating in the event. It is anticipated that at least 100 
spectator vessels will be present during the race.
    The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard's authority to 
establish special local regulations: 33 U.S.C. 1233. The purpose of the 
rule is to insure safety of life on navigable waters of the United 
States during the Stuart Sailfish Regatta.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard did not receive any comments to the proposed rule. 
Two changes were made to the regulatory text. First, the published NPRM 
included an overlap between the buffer zone and the spectator area. 
This has been corrected so that these two areas are in fact defined and 
separate. Second, the paragraph pertaining to the spectator area was 
amended to further explain the regulation for that area. Entrance into 
the spectator area will be regulated and all persons and vessels are 
prohibited from entering the spectator area unless and until given 
permission by the Captain of the Port Miami or designated 
representative via radio on channel 16.
    This temporary final rule establishes a special local regulation 
that will encompass certain waters of the Indian River located 
northeast of Ernest F. Lyons Bridge and south of Joes Cove, in Stuart, 
Florida. The special local regulation will be enforced daily from 9 
a.m. until 5 p.m. from April 19, 2013 until April 21, 2013. The special 
local regulation consists of the following three areas: (1) A race 
area, where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels 
participating in the high-speed boat races, are prohibited from 
entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; (2) a 
buffer zone around the race area, where all persons and vessels, except 
those persons and vessels enforcing the buffer zone, or authorized 
participants or vessels transiting to the race area, are prohibited 
from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within; 
and (3) a spectator area.
    Persons and vessels may request authorization by contacting the 
Captain of the Port Miami by telephone at (305) 535-4472, or a 
designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16, to enter, 
transit through, anchor in, or remain within the race area or the 
buffer zone. If authorization is granted by the Captain of the Port 
Miami or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving 
such authorization must comply with the instructions of the Captain of 
the Port Miami or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will 
provide notice of the regulated areas by Local Notice to Mariners, 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners and on-scene designated representatives.

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

[[Page 18476]]

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 economic impact of this rule is not 
significant for the following reasons: (1) The special local 
regulations will be enforced for a maximum of 8 hours a day for three 
days; (2) non-participant persons and vessels may enter, transit 
through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated areas during their 
respective enforcement periods if authorized by the Captain of the Port 
Miami or a designated representative; (3) non-participant persons and 
vessels not able to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within 
the regulated areas without authorization from the Captain of the Port 
Miami or a designated representative may operate in the surrounding 
areas during the respective enforcement periods; and (4) the Coast 
Guard will provide advance notification of the special local 
regulations to the local maritime community by Local Notice to Mariners 
and Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

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 no 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 may affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to 
enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within any of the 
regulated areas during the respective enforcement period. For the 
reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above, 
this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Public 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 
INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that 
your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or 
security of people, places or vessels.

7. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or Tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in 
such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

8. Taking of Private Property

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

9. Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

10. Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and does not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

11. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

12. Energy Effects

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

13. Technical Standards

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

14. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f). Due to potential 
environmental issues, we conducted an environmental assessment last 
year for both the issuance of the marine event permit and the 
establishment of this special local regulation. The same environmental

[[Page 18477]]

assessment is being used for this year's event as it is substantially 
similar in all aspects and therefore the potential effects and 
alternatives would remain unchanged. Additionally, a supplemental 
environmental assessment was conducted to address changes to the annual 
reoccurring event. After completing the supplemental environmental 
assessment for the issuance of the marine event permit, and the 
establishment of these special local regulations, we have determined 
these actions will not significantly affect the human environment. This 
rule involves the creation of a special local regulation in conjunction 
with a regatta or marine parade, and is categorically excluded from 
further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant 
Instruction. The supplemental environmental assessment, environmental 
assessment, and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) 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.
