Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard has published multiple temporary final rules (TFRs) in the past in response to the NAIAS. Specifically, the Coast Guard published a TFR on January 7, 2011 (76 FR 1065), January 18, 2012 (77 FR 2453), and on December 28, 2012 (77 FR 76411). Each of these TFRs established a security zone to protect participants and spectators associated with the NAIAS. Because this event will likely recur annually, the Captain of the Port Detroit is proposing to establish a permanent security zone and thus, alleviate the need to publish annual TFRs in the future. C. Basis and Purpose For two weeks in the month of January, the Annual North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) will be held at Cobo Hall in downtown Detroit, MI. The NAIAS is the prime venue for introducing the world’s most anticipated vehicles. In 2011, the NAIAS attendance for the public showing was over 735,000 people and press preview days attracted over 5,000 journalists representing 55 countries. Attendance and participation at the 2012 and 2013 NAIAS events were similar, and the attendance and participation at future NAIAS events is anticipated to be similar, too. In years past, NAIAS has attracted numerous protesters from various organizations due to the state of the economy, worker layoffs, and the closures of automotive dealerships around the country. Because of the likely presence of high profile visitors at future NAIAS events, it is possible that protests may continue in subsequent years. Consequently, the Captain of the Port Detroit has determined that establishing a security zone in the vicinity of the NAIAS event is necessary to safeguard portions of the Detroit River from destruction, loss, or injury from sabotage or other subversive acts. D. Discussion of Proposed Rule As stated aboce, to safeguard portions of the Detroit River during NAIAS events, the Captain of the Port Detroit proposes to establish a permanent VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:15 Mar 28, 2013 Jkt 229001 security zone. This proposed security zone will ensure the safety of the participants in and visitors of the annual NAIAS being held at Cobo Hall in downtown Detroit, MI. The proposed security zone will be enforced for two weeks in the month of January. The proposed security zone is expected to be enforced from 8 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. daily for the duration of the event. The proposed security zone will encompass an area of the Detroit River beginning at a point of origin on land adjacent to the west end of Joe Louis Arena at 42°19.44′ N, 083°03.11′ W; then extending offshore approximately 150 yards to 42°19.39′ N, 083°03.07′ W; then proceeding upriver approximately 2000 yards to a point at 42°19.72′ N, 083°01.88′ W; then proceeding onshore to a point on land adjacent the Tricentennial State Park at 42°19.79′ N, 083°01.90′ W; then proceeding downriver along the shoreline to connect back to the point of origin. Vessels in close proximity to the proposed security zone will be subject to increased monitoring and boarding. All geographic coordinates are North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the designated on scene representative. Entry into, transit, or anchoring within the proposed security zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Detroit or his designated on-scene representative. The Captain of the Port or his designated on-scene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. As mentioned above, the proposed security zone will be enforced for two weeks in the month of January. Each year, the Captain of the Port will notify the public by all appropriate means of the specific enforcement dates and times for the proposed security zone. Means of notification will include an annual publication of a Notice of Enforcement (NOE) in the Federal Register. Also, means of notification may include Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local Notice to Mariners. 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 or executive orders. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as supplemented PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this rule is not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The proposed security zone created by this rule will be relatively small and enforced for relatively short time. Also, the proposed security zone is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the proposed security zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port. 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 proposed rule will affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in a portion of the Detroit River, Detroit, Michigan, beginning at a point of origin on land at 42°19.44′ N, 083°03.11′ W; then extending offshore approximately 150 yards to 42°19.39′ N, 083°03.07′ W; then proceeding upriver approximately 2000 yards to a point at 42°19.72′ N, 083°01.88′ W; then proceeding onshore to a point on land at 42°19.79′ N, 083°01.90′ W; then returning to the point of origin. This proposed security zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: this proposed rule will not obstruct the regular flow of commercial traffic and will allow vessel traffic to pass around the proposed security zone. In the event that this proposed security zone affects shipping, commercial vessels may request permission from the Captain of the Port Detroit to transit through the security zone. The Coast Guard will give notice E:\FR\FM\29MRP1.SGM 29MRP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 61 / Friday, March 29, 2013 / Proposed Rules to the public via a Broadcast to Mariners that the regulation is in effect. 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.). 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 We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This 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 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. erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 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. This proposed rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:15 Mar 28, 2013 Jkt 229001 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 19163 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 the establishment of a security zone and is therefore, categorically excluded under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Preliminary 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.

A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to this rule, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For additional information, see the direct final rule which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EPA is proposing to convert a conditional approval of specified provisions of the Ohio state implementation plan (SIP) to a full approval. Ohio submitted a request to approve a section of its particulate matter (PM) rules on February 23, 2012. The PM rule revisions being approved establish work practices for coating operations, add a section clarifying that sources can be subject to both stationary source and fugitive source PM restrictions, and add a PM emission limitation exemption for jet engine testing. Pursuant to a state commitment underlying a previous conditional approval of this rule, the revised rule provides that any exemption from the work practice requirements that the state grants to large coating sources must be submitted to EPA for approval.

B. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard has published multiple temporary final rules (TFRs) 
in the past in response to the NAIAS. Specifically, the Coast Guard 
published a TFR on January 7, 2011 (76 FR 1065), January 18, 2012 (77 
FR 2453), and on December 28, 2012 (77 FR 76411). Each of these TFRs 
established a security zone to protect participants and spectators 
associated with the NAIAS. Because this event will likely recur 
annually, the Captain of the Port Detroit is proposing to establish a 
permanent security zone and thus, alleviate the need to publish annual 
TFRs in the future.

C. Basis and Purpose

    For two weeks in the month of January, the Annual North American 
International Auto Show (NAIAS) will be held at Cobo Hall in downtown 
Detroit, MI. The NAIAS is the prime venue for introducing the world's 
most anticipated vehicles. In 2011, the NAIAS attendance for the public 
showing was over 735,000 people and press preview days attracted over 
5,000 journalists representing 55 countries. Attendance and 
participation at the 2012 and 2013 NAIAS events were similar, and the 
attendance and participation at future NAIAS events is anticipated to 
be similar, too.
    In years past, NAIAS has attracted numerous protesters from various 
organizations due to the state of the economy, worker layoffs, and the 
closures of automotive dealerships around the country. Because of the 
likely presence of high profile visitors at future NAIAS events, it is 
possible that protests may continue in subsequent years. Consequently, 
the Captain of the Port Detroit has determined that establishing a 
security zone in the vicinity of the NAIAS event is necessary to 
safeguard portions of the Detroit River from destruction, loss, or 
injury from sabotage or other subversive acts.

D. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    As stated aboce, to safeguard portions of the Detroit River during 
NAIAS events, the Captain of the Port Detroit proposes to establish a 
permanent security zone. This proposed security zone will ensure the 
safety of the participants in and visitors of the annual NAIAS being 
held at Cobo Hall in downtown Detroit, MI. The proposed security zone 
will be enforced for two weeks in the month of January. The proposed 
security zone is expected to be enforced from 8 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. 
daily for the duration of the event.
    The proposed security zone will encompass an area of the Detroit 
River beginning at a point of origin on land adjacent to the west end 
of Joe Louis Arena at 42[deg]19.44' N, 083[deg]03.11' W; then extending 
offshore approximately 150 yards to 42[deg]19.39' N, 083[deg]03.07' W; 
then proceeding upriver approximately 2000 yards to a point at 
42[deg]19.72' N, 083[deg]01.88' W; then proceeding onshore to a point 
on land adjacent the Tricentennial State Park at 42[deg]19.79' N, 
083[deg]01.90' W; then proceeding downriver along the shoreline to 
connect back to the point of origin. Vessels in close proximity to the 
proposed security zone will be subject to increased monitoring and 
boarding. All geographic coordinates are North American Datum of 1983 
(NAD 83).
    All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the 
Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the designated on scene 
representative. Entry into, transit, or anchoring within the proposed 
security zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the 
Port Detroit or his designated on-scene representative. The Captain of 
the Port or his designated on-scene representative may be contacted via 
VHF Channel 16.
    As mentioned above, the proposed security zone will be enforced for 
two weeks in the month of January. Each year, the Captain of the Port 
will notify the public by all appropriate means of the specific 
enforcement dates and times for the proposed security zone. Means of 
notification will include an annual publication of a Notice of 
Enforcement (NOE) in the Federal Register. Also, means of notification 
may include Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local Notice to Mariners.

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 or executive orders.

1. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action under 
section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, 
as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and 
Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential 
costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of Executive Order 12866 or 
under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and 
Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. It is not 
``significant'' under the regulatory policies and procedures of the 
Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this rule is 
not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will 
have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other 
agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan 
recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The 
proposed security zone created by this rule will be relatively small 
and enforced for relatively short time. Also, the proposed security 
zone is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. Thus, 
restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are 
expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may 
still transit through the proposed security zone when permitted by the 
Captain of the Port.

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 proposed rule will affect the following entities, some of 
which might be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels 
intending to transit or anchor in a portion of the Detroit River, 
Detroit, Michigan, beginning at a point of origin on land at 
42[deg]19.44' N, 083[deg]03.11' W; then extending offshore 
approximately 150 yards to 42[deg]19.39' N, 083[deg]03.07' W; then 
proceeding upriver approximately 2000 yards to a point at 42[deg]19.72' 
N, 083[deg]01.88' W; then proceeding onshore to a point on land at 
42[deg]19.79' N, 083[deg]01.90' W; then returning to the point of 
origin.
    This proposed security zone will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following 
reasons: this proposed rule will not obstruct the regular flow of 
commercial traffic and will allow vessel traffic to pass around the 
proposed security zone. In the event that this proposed security zone 
affects shipping, commercial vessels may request permission from the 
Captain of the Port Detroit to transit through the security zone. The 
Coast Guard will give notice

[[Page 19163]]

to the public via a Broadcast to Mariners that the regulation is in 
effect.
    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

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, 
Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks. This 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 the establishment of a security zone 
and is therefore, categorically excluded under paragraph 34(g) of 
Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental 
analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Preliminary 
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.
