Background The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA or the Act), Public Law 100–497, 25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq., was signed into law on October 17, 1988. The Act established the Commission and set out a comprehensive framework for the regulation of gaming on Indian lands. The Act requires the Commission to ‘‘monitor class II gaming conducted on Indian lands on a continuing basis’’ and to ‘‘promulgate such regulations and E:\FR\FM\24APR1.SGM 24APR1 24062 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 79 / Wednesday, April 24, 2013 / Rules and Regulations tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES guidelines as it deems appropriate to implement’’ IGRA. 25 U.S.C. 2706(b)(1), (b)(10). In 2008, the NIGC published a final rule in the Federal Register that established technical standards for ensuring the integrity of electronic Class II games and aids. 73 FR 60508, Oct. 10, 2008. The technical standards were designed to assist tribal gaming regulatory authorities and operators with ensuring the integrity and security of Class II gaming, the accountability of Class II gaming revenue, and provided guidance to equipment manufacturers and distributors of Class II gaming systems. The standards did not classify which games were Class II games and which games were Class III games. II. Previous Rulemaking Activity In 2012, the NIGC published a final rule in the Federal Register amending its part 547 technical standards to: Change the order of the first five sections; add definitions and amend existing definitions; amend requirements and time restrictions for grandfathered Class II gaming systems; amend the requirements concerning minimum odds for Class II games; amend standards for test labs; remove references to the Federal Communications Commission and Underwriters Laboratory; require a player interface to display a serial number and date of manufacture; amend requirements concerning approval of downloads to a Class II gaming system; and to clarify the term ‘‘alternate standard.’’ 77 FR 58473, Sept. 21, 2012. In addition, § 547.5(e)(5) of the rule states that the part does not apply to a charitable gaming operation provided that, among other requirements, the amount of gross gaming revenue of the charitable gaming operation does not exceed $1 million. The rule became effective on October 22, 2012. At the same time that the NIGC amended and published part 547, it amended and published rules containing minimum internal control standards (MICS) for Class II gaming. 77 FR 58708, Sept. 21, 2012. Similar to the part 547 technical standards, the part 543 MICS exempt charitable gaming operations that earn less than a set threshold amount. However, the Commission increased the threshold amount in the MICS from $1 million to $3 million. In February 2013, the Commission published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposing to revise the threshold amount in § 547.5(e)(5) from $1 million to $3 million in order to harmonize the charitable gaming exemption amounts in the technical VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:22 Apr 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 standards and the MICS to ensure that the exemption for a ‘‘charitable gaming operation’’ is consistent throughout the Commission’s rules (78 FR 11795, Feb. 20, 2013). III. Review of Public Comments In response to its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published on February 20, 2013, the Commission received the following comments: 547.5 How does a tribal government, TGRA, or tribal gaming operation comply with this part? Comment: One commenter commended the current Commission for its efforts to improve existing regulations and for the diligence with which it has undertaken its efforts to consult with tribes. The commenter agrees that the proposed revision is needed in order to match the charitable gaming exemption thresholds of both the technical standards and the MICS. Response: No response is necessary. Comment: One commenter stated that he was puzzled by the $3 million charitable gaming exemption amount, and requested clarification on whether this threshold amount will have an impact on the amount of Class II gaming revenue fees that are required to be paid to the NIGC. Response: The Commission states that the $3 million threshold amount does not impact the amount of Class II gaming revenue fees that are required to be paid to the NIGC; but instead, merely exempts charitable gaming operations whose annual gross gaming revenue does not exceed $3 million from having to abide by the technical standards contained in part 547. The Commission believes that no further revisions to these rules are necessary. Regulatory Matters Regulatory Flexibility Act The rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities as defined under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. Moreover, Indian tribes are not considered to be small entities for the purposes of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act The rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. The rule does not have an effect on the economy of $100 million or more. The rule will not cause a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, individual industries, federal, state, local government agencies or geographic PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 regions. Nor will the rule have a significant adverse effect on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of the enterprises to compete with foreign based enterprises. Unfunded Mandate Reform Act The Commission, as an independent regulatory agency, is exempt from compliance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, 2 U.S.C. 1502(1); 2 U.S.C. 658(1). Takings In accordance with Executive Order 12630, the Commission has determined that the rule does not have significant takings implications. A takings implication assessment is not required. Civil Justice Reform In accordance with Executive Order 12988, the Commission has determined that the rule does not unduly burden the judicial system and meets the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order. National Environmental Policy Act The Commission has determined that the rule does not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment and that no detailed statement is required pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq. Paperwork Reduction Act The information collection requirements contained in this rule were previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq., and assigned OMB Control Number 3141–0014.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary special local regulation on the Trenton Channel of the Detroit River, Wyandotte, Michigan. This action is necessary and intended to ensure safety of life on the navigable waters immediately prior to, during, and immediately after the Hebda Cup Rowing Regatta. This special local regulation will establish restrictions upon, and control movement of, vessels in a portion of the Trenton Channel. During the enforcement period, no person or vessel may enter the regulated area without permission of the Captain of the Port. DATES: This temporary final rule is effective from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on April 27, 2013. ADDRESSES: Documents mentioned in this preamble are part of docket USCG– 2013–0211.

If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Renee V. Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366– 9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 229001 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 waiting for a notice and comment period to run is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to the public interest. The final details for this year’s boat race were not known to the Coast Guard with sufficient time for the Coast Guard to solicit public comments before the start of the event. Thus, delaying this temporary rule to wait for a notice and comment period to run would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest because it would inhibit the Coast Guard’s ability to protect the public from the hazards associated with this boat race. It is also unnecessary to solicit public comments because the Hebda Cup Rowing Regatta has taken place annually under the same name for more than eight years. In light of the long history of this event and the prior years that it has been regulated by the Coast Guard, public awareness in the affected area is high, making it unnecessary to wait for a comment period to run before enforcing this special local regulation for the April 27, 2013 Hebda Cup Rowing Regatta event. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 24063 days after publication in the Federal Register. For the same reasons discussed in the preceding two paragraphs, waiting for a 30 day notice period to run would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. B. Basis and Purpose On April 27, 2013, the Wyandotte Boat Club is holding a rowing race that will require the immediate area to be clear of all vessel traffic. The rowing race will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on April 27, 2013. The Captain of the Port Detroit has determined that the likely combination of recreation vessels, commercial vessels, and large numbers of spectators in close proximity to the boat race pose extra and unusual hazards to public safety and property. Thus, the Captain of the Port Detroit has determined that establishing a Special Local Regulation, pursuant to the authority in 33 U.S.C. § 1233, around the race’s course will help ensure the safety of life during this event. C. Discussion of Rule In light of the aforesaid hazards, the Captain of the Port Detroit has determined that a special local regulation is necessary to protect spectators, vessels, and participants. The special local regulation will encompass all waters of the Detroit River, Trenton Channel starting at a point on land at position 42°10′58″ N, 083°9′23″ W; following the Trenton Channel north to position 42°11′44″ N, 083°8′56″ W; and will be enforced on April 27, 2013, from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. All geographic coordinates are North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). Two thirds of the Trenton Channel on the western portion of the regulated area, from the Wyandotte shoreline to a point approximately 670 feet east into the channel, will be designated as the race zone, while the remaining third portion on the eastern side of the of the regulated area, approximately 330 feet in width, will be designated as a buffer zone. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the race zone the regulated area is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Detroit or his designated on scene representative. Entry into and transiting within buffer zone of the regulated area is only authorized at no-wake speed and requires the authorization of the Captain of the Port or his designated on scene representative.

Minimum Technical Standards for Class II Gaming Systems and 
Equipment

AGENCY: National Indian Gaming Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC or Commission) is 
amending its rules regarding technical standards for Class II gaming 
systems and equipment to harmonize the charitable gaming exemption 
amount in the technical standards with the charitable gaming exemption 
amount in its Class II minimum internal control standards.

DATES: The effective date of these regulations is May 24, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Hoenig, Senior Attorney, 
National Indian Gaming Commission, 1441 L Street NW., Suite 9100,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA or the Act), Public Law 100-
497, 25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq., was signed into law on October 17, 1988. 
The Act established the Commission and set out a comprehensive 
framework for the regulation of gaming on Indian lands. The Act 
requires the Commission to ``monitor class II gaming conducted on 
Indian lands on a continuing basis'' and to ``promulgate such 
regulations and

[[Page 24062]]

guidelines as it deems appropriate to implement'' IGRA. 25 U.S.C. 
2706(b)(1), (b)(10).
    In 2008, the NIGC published a final rule in the Federal Register 
that established technical standards for ensuring the integrity of 
electronic Class II games and aids. 73 FR 60508, Oct. 10, 2008. The 
technical standards were designed to assist tribal gaming regulatory 
authorities and operators with ensuring the integrity and security of 
Class II gaming, the accountability of Class II gaming revenue, and 
provided guidance to equipment manufacturers and distributors of Class 
II gaming systems. The standards did not classify which games were 
Class II games and which games were Class III games.

II. Previous Rulemaking Activity

    In 2012, the NIGC published a final rule in the Federal Register 
amending its part 547 technical standards to: Change the order of the 
first five sections; add definitions and amend existing definitions; 
amend requirements and time restrictions for grandfathered Class II 
gaming systems; amend the requirements concerning minimum odds for 
Class II games; amend standards for test labs; remove references to the 
Federal Communications Commission and Underwriters Laboratory; require 
a player interface to display a serial number and date of manufacture; 
amend requirements concerning approval of downloads to a Class II 
gaming system; and to clarify the term ``alternate standard.'' 77 FR 
58473, Sept. 21, 2012. In addition, Sec.  547.5(e)(5) of the rule 
states that the part does not apply to a charitable gaming operation 
provided that, among other requirements, the amount of gross gaming 
revenue of the charitable gaming operation does not exceed $1 million. 
The rule became effective on October 22, 2012.
    At the same time that the NIGC amended and published part 547, it 
amended and published rules containing minimum internal control 
standards (MICS) for Class II gaming. 77 FR 58708, Sept. 21, 2012. 
Similar to the part 547 technical standards, the part 543 MICS exempt 
charitable gaming operations that earn less than a set threshold 
amount. However, the Commission increased the threshold amount in the 
MICS from $1 million to $3 million.
    In February 2013, the Commission published a Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking proposing to revise the threshold amount in Sec.  
547.5(e)(5) from $1 million to $3 million in order to harmonize the 
charitable gaming exemption amounts in the technical standards and the 
MICS to ensure that the exemption for a ``charitable gaming operation'' 
is consistent throughout the Commission's rules (78 FR 11795, Feb. 20, 
2013).

III. Review of Public Comments

    In response to its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published on 
February 20, 2013, the Commission received the following comments:

547.5 How does a tribal government, TGRA, or tribal gaming operation 
comply with this part?

    Comment: One commenter commended the current Commission for its 
efforts to improve existing regulations and for the diligence with 
which it has undertaken its efforts to consult with tribes. The 
commenter agrees that the proposed revision is needed in order to match 
the charitable gaming exemption thresholds of both the technical 
standards and the MICS.
    Response: No response is necessary.
    Comment: One commenter stated that he was puzzled by the $3 million 
charitable gaming exemption amount, and requested clarification on 
whether this threshold amount will have an impact on the amount of 
Class II gaming revenue fees that are required to be paid to the NIGC.
    Response: The Commission states that the $3 million threshold 
amount does not impact the amount of Class II gaming revenue fees that 
are required to be paid to the NIGC; but instead, merely exempts 
charitable gaming operations whose annual gross gaming revenue does not 
exceed $3 million from having to abide by the technical standards 
contained in part 547. The Commission believes that no further 
revisions to these rules are necessary.

Regulatory Matters

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The rule will not have a significant impact on a substantial number 
of small entities as defined under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 
U.S.C. 601, et seq. Moreover, Indian tribes are not considered to be 
small entities for the purposes of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    The rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small 
Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. The rule does not have an 
effect on the economy of $100 million or more. The rule will not cause 
a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, individual 
industries, federal, state, local government agencies or geographic 
regions. Nor will the rule have a significant adverse effect on 
competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or the 
ability of the enterprises to compete with foreign based enterprises.

Unfunded Mandate Reform Act

    The Commission, as an independent regulatory agency, is exempt from 
compliance with the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, 2 U.S.C. 1502(1); 2 
U.S.C. 658(1).

Takings

    In accordance with Executive Order 12630, the Commission has 
determined that the rule does not have significant takings 
implications. A takings implication assessment is not required.

Civil Justice Reform

    In accordance with Executive Order 12988, the Commission has 
determined that the rule does not unduly burden the judicial system and 
meets the requirements of sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of the Order.

National Environmental Policy Act

    The Commission has determined that the rule does not constitute a 
major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human 
environment and that no detailed statement is required pursuant to the 
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The information collection requirements contained in this rule were 
previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget as required 
by the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq., and assigned 
OMB Control Number 3141-0014. The OMB control number expires on 
November 30, 2015.
