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 guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded that this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves the change to the operating schedule for the Wrightsville Beach Bridge in order to accommodate necessary repair. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction, an environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for this rule.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On January 23, 2013, we published a direct final rule and request for comment entitled, ‘‘Inland Waterways Navigation Regulation: Sacramento River, CA’’ in the Federal Register (78 FR 4785). That rule announced our intent to update the inland waterways navigation regulations by removing the Decker Island restricted anchorage described in 33 CFR 162.205(c). In the direct final rule we notified the public of our intent to make the rule effective on April 23, 2013, unless an adverse comment, or notice of intent to submit an adverse comment, was received on or before March 25, 2013. We did not receive any comments or notices of intent to submit an adverse comment on the rule. Therefore, under 33 CFR 1.05–55(d), we now confirm that the removal of the Decker Island restricted anchorage will become effective, as scheduled, on April 23, 2013.

ACTION: Direct final rule; confirmation of effective date. Coast Guard The Coast Guard is confirming the removal of the Decker Island restricted anchorage area in the Sacramento River. The restricted anchorage area was needed in the past to prevent non-government vessels from transiting through or anchoring in the United States Army’s tug and barge anchorage zones. The United States Army relinquished control of the Island in 1975. A direct final rule detailing the removal of the restricted anchorage regulation was published in the Federal Register on January 23, 2013. We received no comments in response, therefore, the rule will go into effect as scheduled. DATES: The effective date of the direct final rule published January 23, 2013 (78 FR 4785) is confirmed as April 23, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information On June 18, 2008, the Coast Guard put 33 CFR 165.939 into effect, which established several permanent safety zones within U.S. navigable waters under the jurisdiction of the Captain of the Port Buffalo (73 FR 28704). Specifically, twenty-six permanent safety zones were established then. These safety zones were put in place to protect the boating public from hazards associated with annually recurring fireworks displays that take place over U.S. navigable waterways. Since those twenty-six safety zones were established in June of 2008, the Coast Guard has not amended 33 CFR 165.939. On February 20, 2013, we published a NPRM entitled Safety Zones; Annual Fireworks Events in the Captain of the Port Buffalo Zone in the Federal Register (78 FR 11798). We received 0 comments on the proposed rule. B. Basis and Purpose As stated above, 33 CFR 165.939 currently lists twenty-six permanent safety zones within the Captain of the Port Zone Buffalo. Each of these twentysix safety zones corresponds to an annually recurring fireworks display. During a recent review of 33 CFR 165.939, it was determined that event details for seventeen recurring fireworks displays have changed, seven additional recurring fireworks displays now require that permanent safety zones be implemented, and four permanent safety zones require disestablishment because the corresponding fireworks displays have not occurred for an extended time. In addition, it was noted that the coordinates for the safety zones corresponding with the Browns Football Half time Fireworks and the Lorain Port Fest Fireworks are formatted differently than the other safety zones. Finally, it was noted that the radius of the safety zone associated with the Lorain Port Fest Fireworks is in yards as opposed to E:\FR\FM\23APR1.SGM 23APR1
