DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY PART 892—RADIOLOGY DEVICES The Coast Guard proposes to add, delete, and modify safety zones and special local regulations and add language to clarify time frames and notification requirements for annual marine events in the Sector Long Island Sound Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone. When these regulated areas are activated and subject to enforcement, this rule would restrict vessels from portions of water areas during these recurring events. The safety zones and special local regulations will facilitate public notification of events and provide protective measures for the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with these recurring events.

Please explain why you believe a public meeting would be beneficial. If we determine that one would aid this rulemaking, we will hold one at a time and place announced by a later notice in the Federal Register. B. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard promulgated safety zones and special local regulations for most of these events in the past and received no public comments. The most recently promulgated rulemaking was on April 4, 2012 when the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled, (NPRM) Special Local Regulation and Safety Zones; Marine Events in Captain of the Port Sector Long Island Sound Zone in the Federal Register (77 FR 20324). A final rule was published on July 5, 2012, entitled, ‘‘Special Local Regulation and Safety Zones; Marine Events in Captain of the Port Sector Long Island Sound Zone’’ in the Federal Register (77 FR 39633). C. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the proposed rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231, 1233; 46 U.S.C. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:46 Apr 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory safety zones. This regulation proposes to: (1) Establish new marine event regulated areas, (2) remove old safety zones that are no longer needed, (3) modify and update some existing regulated areas and (4) clarify event time frames and marine event application requirements. This will account for new events, remove events that are no longer held, and to account for modifications to several of the recurring marine events that have occurred since last year. D. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard proposes to revise sections 33 CFR 165.151 ‘‘Safety Zones; Fireworks Displays, Air Shows and Swim Events in the Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone’’ and 33 CFR 100.100 ‘‘Special Local Regulations; Regattas and Boat Races in the Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound Captain of the Port Zone.’’ By establishing 41 permanent marine events regulated areas, removing four, modifying one marine event safety zone and adding language to clarify event time frames and marine event application requirements. By proposing these permanent regulation updates, we are providing the public with an opportunity to comment on these changes. This rulemaking limits the unnecessary burden of continually establishing temporary rules every year for events that occur on an annual basis. (1) Establishing New Marine Event Regulated Areas This rule proposes to establish 39 permanent marine event safety zones under 33 CFR 165.151 and two permanent marine events special local regulations under 33 CFR 100.100. These events include fireworks displays, swimming events, and regattas that take place throughout the Long Island Sound Captain of the Port Zone. Event locations and details are listed below in the text of the regulation. Because large numbers of spectator vessels are expected to congregate around the location of these events, these regulated areas are needed to protect both spectators and participants from the safety hazards created by them—including large numbers of swimmers, hard to see and unstable small boats, unexpected pyrotechnics detonation, and burning debris. This rule would permanently establish regulated areas that restrict vessel PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 movement around the location of each marine event to reduce the safety risks associated with them. During the enforcement period of the regulated areas, persons and vessels would be prohibited from entering, transiting through, remaining, anchoring or mooring within the regulated area unless specifically authorized by the COTP or the designated representative. Persons and vessels would be able to request authorization to enter, transit through, remain, anchor or moor within the regulated areas by contacting the COTP Sector Long Island Sound by telephone at (203) 468–4401, or designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, remain, anchor, or moor within any of the regulated areas is granted, all persons and vessels receiving authorization would be required to comply with the instructions of the COTP or designated representative. The Coast Guard COTP Sector Long Island Sound or designated representatives would enforce the regulated areas. These designated representatives are comprised of commissioned, warrant, and petty officers of the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other federal, state and local agencies in the enforcement of these regulated areas. To aid the public in identifying the launch platforms; fireworks barges used for these displays will have a sign on their port and starboard side labeled ‘‘FIREWORKS—STAY AWAY.’’ This sign will consist of 10 inch high by 1.5 inch wide red lettering on a white background. Shore launch sites will display a sign labeled ‘‘FIREWORKS— STAY AWAY’’ with the same dimensions. Certain safety zones and special local regulations are listed without known dates or times. Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound will cause notice of the enforcement of these regulated areas to be made by all appropriate means to affect the widest publicity among the effected segments of the public, including publication in the Federal Register as a Notice of Enforcement, Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. (2) Remove Old Safety Zones That Are No Longer Needed This rule proposes to remove four safety zones from TABLE 1 to § 165.151. Events 7.18 Hartford Riverfest Fireworks and 7.32 Thames River Fireworks will be removed because they are redundant. The Riverfest Fireworks and Mashantucket Pequot Fireworks events are permanent events under TABLE 1 to E:\FR\FM\04APP1.SGM 04APP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 65 / Thursday, April 4, 2013 / Proposed Rules § 165.151 and provide safety zones for the same events making 7.18 and 7.32 unnecessary. Events 8.1 Pyro-FX Entertainment Group Fireworks and 8.2 Port Washington Sons of Italy Fireworks will be removed because the events have not taken place in several years and are no longer needed. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS (3) Modify and Update Existing Regulated Areas Event 5.1 Jones Beach Air Show would be modified to expand the event area by moving the current western boundary a half mile further to the west and the south west corner one mile further south. This is being proposed because one of the events aerial performing groups ‘‘The Blue Angels’’ has requested a larger area within which to perform their aerial acrobatics. This larger area would expand the area vessels are prohibited from entering, transiting through, remaining, anchoring or mooring within and provide ‘‘The Blue Angels’’ a larger area to perform their aerial acrobatics while minimizing risks to the maritime community. (4) Clarifying Event Time Frames and Marine Event Application Requirements The Coast Guard proposes to add new language to both 33 CFR 100.100 and 33 CFR 165.151. First we propose stating that sponsors for each marine event listed in the tables must submit a marine event application 60 days prior to the proposed event date. This language does not create or change the submission requirements, it simply restates the requirements of 33 CFR 100.15 making it easier for sponsors to locate by placing it with the other event requirements. We are proposing this language because there has been some confusion about how early a sponsor must submit a marine event application, the goal of this language is to eliminate that confusion. Secondly, we propose each event listed in the table without a date must take place during the month it is listed under. We are proposing this to give sponsors and the public a known date range that the event must take place within. Currently, events are listed under a specific month such as ‘‘June’’ or ‘‘August’’ and the expectation is that the sponsor will hold the event during the month it is listed. However, this has never been a written standard. Adding this language provides the sponsors and public a written standard and a chance to comment on it. We propose one exception to these date limits, any safety zone listed in 33 CFR 165.151 under the month of July may take place during July or up to seven days prior to July. We are proposing this exception to VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:46 Apr 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 account for events that are listed under the month of July and are proposed to closely coincide with or specifically avoid Fourth of July celebrations. Accordingly, many of these events are planned to be held the weekend before the Fourth of July. However, due to the annual variations concerning the day of the week on which the holiday falls, scheduling the event for the preceding weekend may result in the event being held in the last week of June in some years and in July in other years. 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. We expect the economic impact of this proposed rule to be minimal. Although this regulation may have some impact on the public, the potential impact will be minimized for the following reasons: The Coast Guard has previously promulgated regulated areas in accordance with 33 CFR parts 165, for most event areas contained within this proposed regulation and has not received notice of any negative impact caused by any of the regulated areas. Vessels will only be restricted from regulated areas for a short duration of time. Vessels may transit in portions of the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the proposed regulated areas. Notifications of exact dates and times of the enforcement period will be made to the local maritime community through all appropriate means, including but not limited to the Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners or through a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register. No new or additional restrictions would be imposed on vessel traffic. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 20279 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 would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in a designated regulated area during an enforcement period. The regulated areas will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The regulated areas will be of limited size and of short duration; vessels that can safely do so may navigate in all other portions of the waterways except for the areas designated as regulated areas; most of these regulated areas have been promulgated in the past with no public comments submitted. Additionally, before the effective period, the Coast Guard will issue notice of the time and location of each regulated area through all appropriate means including but not limited to Local Notice to Mariners or Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 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 E:\FR\FM\04APP1.SGM 04APP1 20280 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 65 / Thursday, April 4, 2013 / Proposed Rules 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. 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. 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. 12. Energy Effects 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. 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 safety zones and special local regulations. This rule may be categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g)&(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead 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 rule is not an economically This proposed rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose On March 22, 2013, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (78 FR 17781), in which we proposed to require owners and operators of certain vessels and facilities regulated by the Coast Guard to use electronic readers designed to work with the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) as an access control measure. The NPRM also proposed additional requirements associated with electronic TWIC readers, including recordkeeping requirements for those owners and operators required to use an electronic TWIC reader, and security plan amendments to incorporate TWIC reader requirements. The TWIC program, including the TWIC reader requirements proposed in the NPRM, is an important component of the Coast Guard’s multi-layered system of access control requirements and other measures designed to enhance maritime security. PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 20289 As authorized by the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 1 (MTSA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) established the TWIC program to address identity management shortcomings and vulnerabilities identified in the nation’s transportation system and to comply with the MTSA statutory requirements. On January 25, 2007, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through the Coast Guard and TSA, promulgated regulations that require mariners and other individuals granted unescorted access to secure areas of MTSAregulated vessels or facilities to undergo a security threat assessment by TSA and obtain a TWIC.2 This NPRM that is the subject of this public meeting, which would require owners and operators of certain types of vessels and facilities to use electronic TWIC readers, would advance the goals of the TWIC program. In crafting the proposals in the NPRM, the Coast Guard conducted a risk-based analysis of MTSA-regulated vessels and facilities to categorize them into one of three risk groups, labeled A, B, and C. Risk Group A is comprised of vessels and facilities that present the highest risk of being involved in a transportation security incident (TSI).3 The NPRM proposes TWIC reader requirements for vessels and facilities in Risk Group A. Under the NPRM, vessels and facilities in Risk Groups B and C present progressively lower risks, and would continue to follow existing regulatory requirements for visual TWIC inspection. The Coast Guard believes that in addition to receiving written comments on the NPRM, a public meeting would benefit the impacted community by providing another forum to raise relevant issues. Also, the Security and Accountability For Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006 4 requires the Coast Guard to hold at least one public hearing before promulgating final TWIC reader regulations (see 46 U.S.C. 70105(k)(3)). This public meeting will further enable the Coast Guard to craft policy informed by the public. We may hold one or more additional public meetings regarding the proposals 1 Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064 (Nov. 2, 2002). 2 Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Implementation in the Maritime Sector; Hazardous Materials Endorsement for a Commercial Driver’s License, 72 FR 3492 (Jan. 25, 2007). 3 A transportation security incident is a security incident resulting in a significant loss of life, environmental damage, transportation system disruption, or economic disruption in a particular area, as defined in 46 U.S.C. 70101 (49 CFR 1572.103). 4 Public Law 109–347, 120 Stat. 1884 (Oct. 13, 2006).

comments. The most recently promulgated rulemaking was on April 4, 2012 
when the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
entitled, (NPRM) Special Local Regulation and Safety Zones; Marine 
Events in Captain of the Port Sector Long Island Sound Zone in the 
Federal Register (77 FR 20324). A final rule was published on July 5, 
2012, entitled, ``Special Local Regulation and Safety Zones; Marine 
Events in Captain of the Port Sector Long Island Sound Zone'' in the 
Federal Register (77 FR 39633).

C. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for the proposed rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231, 1233; 46 
U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05-1, 
6.04-1, 6.04-6, and 160.5; Public Law 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; and 
Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which 
collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory safety 
zones.
    This regulation proposes to: (1) Establish new marine event 
regulated areas, (2) remove old safety zones that are no longer needed, 
(3) modify and update some existing regulated areas and (4) clarify 
event time frames and marine event application requirements. This will 
account for new events, remove events that are no longer held, and to 
account for modifications to several of the recurring marine events 
that have occurred since last year.

D. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard proposes to revise sections 33 CFR 165.151 ``Safety 
Zones; Fireworks Displays, Air Shows and Swim Events in the Captain of 
the Port Long Island Sound Zone'' and 33 CFR 100.100 ``Special Local 
Regulations; Regattas and Boat Races in the Coast Guard Sector Long 
Island Sound Captain of the Port Zone.'' By establishing 41 permanent 
marine events regulated areas, removing four, modifying one marine 
event safety zone and adding language to clarify event time frames and 
marine event application requirements. By proposing these permanent 
regulation updates, we are providing the public with an opportunity to 
comment on these changes. This rulemaking limits the unnecessary burden 
of continually establishing temporary rules every year for events that 
occur on an annual basis.

(1) Establishing New Marine Event Regulated Areas

    This rule proposes to establish 39 permanent marine event safety 
zones under 33 CFR 165.151 and two permanent marine events special 
local regulations under 33 CFR 100.100. These events include fireworks 
displays, swimming events, and regattas that take place throughout the 
Long Island Sound Captain of the Port Zone. Event locations and details 
are listed below in the text of the regulation. Because large numbers 
of spectator vessels are expected to congregate around the location of 
these events, these regulated areas are needed to protect both 
spectators and participants from the safety hazards created by them--
including large numbers of swimmers, hard to see and unstable small 
boats, unexpected pyrotechnics detonation, and burning debris. This 
rule would permanently establish regulated areas that restrict vessel 
movement around the location of each marine event to reduce the safety 
risks associated with them.
    During the enforcement period of the regulated areas, persons and 
vessels would be prohibited from entering, transiting through, 
remaining, anchoring or mooring within the regulated area unless 
specifically authorized by the COTP or the designated representative. 
Persons and vessels would be able to request authorization to enter, 
transit through, remain, anchor or moor within the regulated areas by 
contacting the COTP Sector Long Island Sound by telephone at (203) 468-
4401, or designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. If 
authorization to enter, transit through, remain, anchor, or moor within 
any of the regulated areas is granted, all persons and vessels 
receiving authorization would be required to comply with the 
instructions of the COTP or designated representative.
    The Coast Guard COTP Sector Long Island Sound or designated 
representatives would enforce the regulated areas. These designated 
representatives are comprised of commissioned, warrant, and petty 
officers of the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other 
federal, state and local agencies in the enforcement of these regulated 
areas.
    To aid the public in identifying the launch platforms; fireworks 
barges used for these displays will have a sign on their port and 
starboard side labeled ``FIREWORKS--STAY AWAY.'' This sign will consist 
of 10 inch high by 1.5 inch wide red lettering on a white background. 
Shore launch sites will display a sign labeled ``FIREWORKS--STAY AWAY'' 
with the same dimensions.
    Certain safety zones and special local regulations are listed 
without known dates or times. Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound will 
cause notice of the enforcement of these regulated areas to be made by 
all appropriate means to affect the widest publicity among the effected 
segments of the public, including publication in the Federal Register 
as a Notice of Enforcement, Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners.

(2) Remove Old Safety Zones That Are No Longer Needed

    This rule proposes to remove four safety zones from TABLE 1 to 
Sec.  165.151. Events 7.18 Hartford Riverfest Fireworks and 7.32 Thames 
River Fireworks will be removed because they are redundant. The 
Riverfest Fireworks and Mashantucket Pequot Fireworks events are 
permanent events under TABLE 1 to

[[Page 20279]]

Sec.  165.151 and provide safety zones for the same events making 7.18 
and 7.32 unnecessary. Events 8.1 Pyro-FX Entertainment Group Fireworks 
and 8.2 Port Washington Sons of Italy Fireworks will be removed because 
the events have not taken place in several years and are no longer 
needed.

(3) Modify and Update Existing Regulated Areas

    Event 5.1 Jones Beach Air Show would be modified to expand the 
event area by moving the current western boundary a half mile further 
to the west and the south west corner one mile further south. This is 
being proposed because one of the events aerial performing groups ``The 
Blue Angels'' has requested a larger area within which to perform their 
aerial acrobatics. This larger area would expand the area vessels are 
prohibited from entering, transiting through, remaining, anchoring or 
mooring within and provide ``The Blue Angels'' a larger area to perform 
their aerial acrobatics while minimizing risks to the maritime 
community.

(4) Clarifying Event Time Frames and Marine Event Application 
Requirements

    The Coast Guard proposes to add new language to both 33 CFR 100.100 
and 33 CFR 165.151. First we propose stating that sponsors for each 
marine event listed in the tables must submit a marine event 
application 60 days prior to the proposed event date. This language 
does not create or change the submission requirements, it simply 
restates the requirements of 33 CFR 100.15 making it easier for 
sponsors to locate by placing it with the other event requirements. We 
are proposing this language because there has been some confusion about 
how early a sponsor must submit a marine event application, the goal of 
this language is to eliminate that confusion.
    Secondly, we propose each event listed in the table without a date 
must take place during the month it is listed under. We are proposing 
this to give sponsors and the public a known date range that the event 
must take place within. Currently, events are listed under a specific 
month such as ``June'' or ``August'' and the expectation is that the 
sponsor will hold the event during the month it is listed. However, 
this has never been a written standard. Adding this language provides 
the sponsors and public a written standard and a chance to comment on 
it. We propose one exception to these date limits, any safety zone 
listed in 33 CFR 165.151 under the month of July may take place during 
July or up to seven days prior to July. We are proposing this exception 
to account for events that are listed under the month of July and are 
proposed to closely coincide with or specifically avoid Fourth of July 
celebrations. Accordingly, many of these events are planned to be held 
the weekend before the Fourth of July. However, due to the annual 
variations concerning the day of the week on which the holiday falls, 
scheduling the event for the preceding weekend may result in the event 
being held in the last week of June in some years and in July in other 
years.

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.
    We expect the economic impact of this proposed rule to be minimal. 
Although this regulation may have some impact on the public, the 
potential impact will be minimized for the following reasons: The Coast 
Guard has previously promulgated regulated areas in accordance with 33 
CFR parts 165, for most event areas contained within this proposed 
regulation and has not received notice of any negative impact caused by 
any of the regulated areas.
    Vessels will only be restricted from regulated areas for a short 
duration of time. Vessels may transit in portions of the affected 
waterway except for those areas covered by the proposed regulated 
areas. Notifications of exact dates and times of the enforcement period 
will be made to the local maritime community through all appropriate 
means, including but not limited to the Local Notice to Mariners, 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners or through a Notice of Enforcement in the 
Federal Register. No new or additional restrictions would be imposed on 
vessel traffic.

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 would affect the following entities, 
some of which might be small entities: the owners or operators of 
vessels intending to transit or anchor in a designated regulated area 
during an enforcement period.
    The regulated areas will not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The 
regulated areas will be of limited size and of short duration; vessels 
that can safely do so may navigate in all other portions of the 
waterways except for the areas designated as regulated areas; most of 
these regulated areas have been promulgated in the past with no public 
comments submitted. Additionally, before the effective period, the 
Coast Guard will issue notice of the time and location of each 
regulated area through all appropriate means including but not limited 
to Local Notice to Mariners or Broadcast Notice to Mariners.
    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

[[Page 20280]]

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 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 safety zones and special local 
regulations. This rule may be categorically excluded from further 
review under paragraph 34(g)&(h) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant 
Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting 
this determination is 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.

                                          vessels must be at anchor
                                          within a designated spectator
                                          area or moored to a waterfront
                                          facility within the regulated
                                          area in such a way that they
                                          shall not interfere with the
                                          progress of the event at least
                                          30 minutes prior to the start
                                          of the races. They must remain
                                          moored or at anchor until the
                                          men's varsity have passed
                                          their positions. At that time,
                                          spectator vessels located
                                          south of the Harvard Boathouse
                                          may proceed downriver at a
                                          reasonable speed. Vessels
                                          situated between the Harvard
                                          Boathouse and the finish line
                                          must remain stationary until
                                          both crews return safely to
                                          their boathouses. If for any
                                          reason the men's varsity crew
                                          race is postponed, spectator
                                          vessels will remain in
                                          position until notified by
                                          Coast Guard or regatta patrol
                                          personnel. The last 1000 feet
                                          of the race course near the
                                          finish line will be delineated
                                          by four temporary white buoys
                                          provided by the sponsor. All
                                          spectator craft shall remain
                                          behind these buoys during the
                                          event. Spectator craft shall
                                          not anchor: To the west of the
                                          race course, between Scotch
                                          Cap and Bartlett Point Light,
                                          or within the race course
                                          boundaries or in such a manner
                                          that would allow their vessel
                                          to drift or swing into the
                                          race course. During the
                                          effective period all vessels
                                          shall proceed at a speed not
                                          to exceed six knots in the
                                          regulated area. Spectator
                                          vessels shall not follow the
                                          crews during the races.
                                          Swimming is prohibited in the
                                          vicinity of the race course
