Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because delay would be impracticable. Immediate action is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels, spectators, participants, and others in the vicinity of the marine event on the dates and times this rule will be in effect. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), for the same reasons mentioned above, the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date would be contrary to the public interest and impracticable, since immediate action is needed to ensure the public’s safety. 33 CFR Part 165 [Docket No. USCG–2013–0074] RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone; BWRC Spring Classic, Parker, AZ Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone within the Lake Moovalya region of the navigable waters of the Colorado River in Parker, Arizona for the Blue Water Resort and Casino Spring Classic. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, participating vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective from 6 a.m. on April 5, 2013, until 6 p.m. on April 7, 2013. It will be enforced from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 5, 6, and 7, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:47 Apr 02, 2013 Jkt 229001 B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this temporary rule is the Ports and Waterways Safety Act which authorizes the Coast Guard to establish safety zones (33 U.S.C 1221 et seq.). The Southern California Speedboat Club is sponsoring the Blue Water Resort and Casino Spring Classic, which is held on the Lake Moovalya region of the Colorado River in Parker, Arizona. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, sponsor vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway. This event involves powerboats racing along a circular course. The size of the boats varies from 10 to 21 feet in length. Approximately 85 boats will be participating in this event. The sponsor will provide two patrol boats and two rescue boats to act as river closure boats that help facilitate the event and ensure public safety. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone that will be enforced from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 5, 2013, through April 7, 2013. This safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the crews, spectators, participants, and PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels will be prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring with this safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or his designated representative. This temporary safety zone includes the waters of the Colorado River between Headgate Dam and 0.5 miles north of the Blue Water Marina in Parker, Arizona. Before the effective period, the Coast Guard will publish a Local Notice to Mariners (LNM). D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes and executive orders. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. We expect the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This determination is based on the size and location of the safety zone. Commercial vessels will not be hindered by the safety zone. Recreational vessels may transit through the established safety zone if authorized to do so by the Captain of the Port or his designated representative. 2. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard 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 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 Colorado River from 6 E:\FR\FM\03APR1.SGM 03APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 64 / Wednesday, April 3, 2013 / Rules and Regulations a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 5, 2013, through April 7, 2013. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. Although the safety zone would apply to the entire width of the river, traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission of the designated representative. Before the effective period, the Coast Guard will publish a Local Notice to Mariners (LNM). 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 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. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:47 Apr 02, 2013 Jkt 229001 person listed in the FOR FURTHER INTFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels. 7. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. 9. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. 10. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. 11. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. 12. Energy Effects This action is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. 13. Technical Standards This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 19989 consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves the establishment of a safety zone. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.

ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendment. AGENCY: This document corrects an error in the codification in an October 26, 2010, final rule under the Clean Air Act. This rule approved revisions to Ohio regulations that consolidated air quality standards in a new chapter of rules and adjusted the rule references accordingly in various related rules. Of particular note is a revision that adjusted the provision for wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:47 Apr 02, 2013 Jkt 229001 measurements for comparison with the particulate matter air quality standards. EPA erroneously codified approval of the entirety of the rule, which may be misread as having inadvertently approved several other provisions which were not addressed in the October 26, 2010 final rule, and which EPA in separate rulemaking had proposed to disapprove. Therefore, EPA is correcting its action to clarify the codification to show that only one paragraph of this rule was approved. This action simply makes the codification consistent with the approval. This final rule is effective on April 3, 2013. DATES: John Summerhays, Environmental Scientist, Attainment Planning and Maintenance Section, Air Programs Branch (AR–18J), Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604, (312) 886–6067, summerhays.john@epa.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On October 26, 2010, EPA published a final approval of Ohio rules consolidating the State’s air quality standards into Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) 3745–25 and modifying an assortment of related rules, mostly providing test methods for measurements used to assess attainment of those standards, so that these related rules would properly reference the relocated air quality standard rules. This action was published at 75 FR 65572 as a direct final rule. In codifying the approval of these rules, EPA erroneously appeared to approve the entirety of the modified rules, even though in some cases only one paragraph was addressed or modified. OAC 3745–17–03 included pertinent revisions in paragraph (A) specifying test methods for the particulate matter air quality standards. However, OAC 3745–17–03 also included numerous unrelated revisions that had not been previously approved, most notably including revisions that EPA had proposed to disapprove (see 70 FR 36901, published June 27, 2005). EPA’s notice of direct final rulemaking published October 26, 2010, provided no discussion of the issues related to the other sections of OAC 3745–17–03, reflecting the fact that EPA intended only to approve and codify the revisions in OAC 3745–17–03(A). Therefore, EPA today is correcting the codification for that action to indicate that only OAC 3745–17–03(A) of that rule is approved. This makes the codification match the approval. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Correction In the codification published in the Federal Register on October 26, 2010 (75 FR 65572), on page 65574 in the second column, the paragraph numbered (c)(138)(i)(A), erroneously reading: ‘‘Ohio Administrative Code Rule 3745–17–03 ‘Measurement methods and procedures.’, effective April 18, 2009,’’ is corrected to read: ‘‘Paragraph (A) of Ohio Administrative Code Rule 3745–17–03, ‘Measurement methods and procedures.’, effective April 18, 2009.’’ Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. EPA has determined that there is good cause for making today’s rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because EPA is merely correcting an incorrect codification in a previous action. The corrected codification reflects the revisions that EPA approved in its direct final rule. We find that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). Thus, notice and opportunity for public comment are unnecessary. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ and is therefore not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For this reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355 (May 22, 2001)). Because the agency has made a ‘‘good cause’’ finding that this action is not subject to notice-and-comment requirements under the Administrative Procedures Act or any other statute as indicated in the Supplementary Information section above, it is not subject to the regulatory flexibility provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), or to sections 202 and 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Pub. L. 104–4). In addition, this action does not significantly or uniquely affect small governments or impose a significant intergovernmental mandate, as described in sections 203 and 204 of UMRA. This rule also does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and E:\FR\FM\03APR1.SGM 03APR1

from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this safety 
zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated 
representative.

DATES: This rule is effective from 6 a.m. on April 5, 2013, until 6 
p.m. on April 7, 2013. It will be enforced from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on 
April 5, 6, and 7, 2013.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior 
notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 
4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This 
provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and 
opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those 
procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest.'' Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
with respect to this rule because delay would be impracticable. 
Immediate action is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels, 
spectators, participants, and others in the vicinity of the marine 
event on the dates and times this rule will be in effect.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), for the same reasons mentioned above, the 
Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective 
less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying 
the effective date would be contrary to the public interest and 
impracticable, since immediate action is needed to ensure the public's 
safety.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for this temporary rule is the Ports and Waterways 
Safety Act which authorizes the Coast Guard to establish safety zones 
(33 U.S.C 1221 et seq.).
    The Southern California Speedboat Club is sponsoring the Blue Water 
Resort and Casino Spring Classic, which is held on the Lake Moovalya 
region of the Colorado River in Parker, Arizona. This temporary safety 
zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, 
spectators, sponsor vessels, and other vessels and users of the 
waterway. This event involves powerboats racing along a circular 
course. The size of the boats varies from 10 to 21 feet in length. 
Approximately 85 boats will be participating in this event. The sponsor 
will provide two patrol boats and two rescue boats to act as river 
closure boats that help facilitate the event and ensure public safety.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone that will be enforced 
from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 5, 2013, through April 7, 2013. This 
safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the crews, 
spectators, participants, and other vessels and users of the waterway. 
Persons and vessels will be prohibited from entering into, transiting 
through, or anchoring with this safety zone unless authorized by the 
Captain of the Port, or his designated representative. This temporary 
safety zone includes the waters of the Colorado River between Headgate 
Dam and 0.5 miles north of the Blue Water Marina in Parker, Arizona. 
Before the effective period, the Coast Guard will publish a Local 
Notice to Mariners (LNM).

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on these statutes and executive orders.

1. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) 
of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as 
supplemented by Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and 
Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential 
costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of Executive Order 12866 or 
under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and 
Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. We expect the economic 
impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation 
is unnecessary. This determination is based on the size and location of 
the safety zone. Commercial vessels will not be hindered by the safety 
zone. Recreational vessels may transit through the established safety 
zone if authorized to do so by the Captain of the Port or his 
designated representative.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as 
amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of 
regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ``small 
entities'' comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations 
that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their 
fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 
50,000. The Coast Guard 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 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 Colorado River from 
6

[[Page 19989]]

a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 5, 2013, through April 7, 2013.
    This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. 
Although the safety zone would apply to the entire width of the river, 
traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission 
of the designated representative. Before the effective period, the 
Coast Guard will publish a Local Notice to Mariners (LNM).

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 rule. If the rule would affect your 
small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have 
questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please 
contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, 
above.
    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 
employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal 
regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory 
Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory 
Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and 
rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to 
comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR 
(1-888-734-3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 
entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or 
action of the Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

    This rule will not call for a new collection of information under 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

5. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the 
relationship between the national government and the States, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and determined 
that this rule does not have implications for federalism.

6. Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. 
Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INTFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that 
your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or 
security of people, places or vessels.

7. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

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

8. Taking of Private Property

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

9. Civil Justice Reform

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

10. Protection of Children

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

11. Indian Tribal Governments

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

12. Energy Effects

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

13. Technical Standards

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

14. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have determined 
that this action is one of a category of actions that do not 
individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human 
environment. This rule involves the establishment of a safety zone. 
This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 
34(g) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental 
analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical 
Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated 
under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to 
the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.
