The Class D and Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed regulation (1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified this proposed rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106, describes the authority for the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would modify controlled airspace at Twin Falls Joslin Field-Magic Valley Regional Airport, Twin Falls, ID. This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:09 Apr 30, 2013 Jkt 229001 PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS Paragraph 6005 Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth. 1.

Background and Purpose From June 28 to June 30, 2013, the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, MI will host an air show over the West Arm of Grand Traverse Bay. At the conclusion of the National Cherry Festival on July 6, 2013, fireworks will be launched in Grand Traverse Bay. The Captain of the Port, Sault Sainte Marie has determined that the air show and fireworks display pose various potential hazards to the public, including premature detonations, dangerous projectiles, and falling or burning debris. With these potential hazards in mind, the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie proposes to establish a temporary safety zone pursuant to the authority granted in the Ports and Waterways Safety Act (33 U.S.C. 1221 et seq.) C. Discussion of Proposed Rule To safeguard against the dangers posed by the National Cherry Festival air show and fireworks display, the Captain of the Port, Sault Sainte Marie has determined that temporary safety zones are necessary. Thus, the Captain of the Port, Sault Sainte Marie proposes to establish two safety zones for the air show and fireworks display over the West Arm of Grand Traverse Bay. The proposed safety zone for the air show will be established on June 28, 2013, until June 30, 2013, in a position over West Grand Traverse Bay bounded by a line drawn from 44°46′48″ N, 085°38′18″ W, then southeast to 44°46′30″ N, 085°35′30″ W, then southwest to 44°46′00″ N, 085°35′48″ W, then northwest to 44°46′18″ N, 085°38′18″ W, then back to the point of origin. This proposed safety zone will be effective from 12 p.m. on June 28, 2013, until 3 p.m. on June 30, 2013. This proposed safety zone will be enforced daily from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m. A proposed safety zone will be established on July 6, 2013, for the National Cherry Festival Fireworks display over West Grand Traverse Bay within the arc of a circle with a 1000foot radius from the fireworks launch site located on a barge in position 44°46′12″ N, 085°37′06″ W. This proposed safety zone will be effective and enforced from 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on July 6, 2013. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the proposed safety zones is prohibited unless authorized by the E:\FR\FM\01MYP1.SGM 01MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 84 / Wednesday, May 1, 2013 / Proposed Rules Captain of the Port, Sault Sainte Marie, or his on-scene representative. All persons and vessels authorized to enter the proposed safety zones shall comply with the instructions of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the designated onscene representative. The Captain of the Port or his on-scene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The safety zones established by this proposed rule will be relatively small and enforced for a relatively short time. Also, the safety zones are designed to minimize their impacts on navigable waters in that vessels may still transit unrestricted portions of the waterways. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the safety zones when permitted by the Captain of the Port, Sault Sainte Marie. On the whole, the Coast Guard expects insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the enforcement of this proposed rule. 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 may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit around West Grand Traverse Bay, Traverse City, Michigan, between 12:30 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:09 Apr 30, 2013 Jkt 229001 p.m. and 3 p.m. on June 28 to June 30, 2013, and from 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on July 6, 2013. These proposed safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above. 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 MST1 Thomas Link, Prevention Department, Coast Guard Sector Sault Sainte Marie, MI at (906) 253–2443. 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 would call for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). 5. Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this proposed rule under that Order and determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism. 6. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 25409 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 7. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would not affect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. 8. 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. 9. 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. 10. Indian Tribal Governments This proposed 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. 11. 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. 12. Technical Standards This proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 13. 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 E:\FR\FM\01MYP1.SGM 01MYP1 25410 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 84 / Wednesday, May 1, 2013 / Proposed Rules 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 is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34) (g), of the Commandant Instruction because it involves the establishment of a safety zone. 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. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, Waterways.

B. Background and Purpose

    From June 28 to June 30, 2013, the National Cherry Festival in 
Traverse City, MI will host an air show over the West Arm of Grand 
Traverse Bay. At the conclusion of the National Cherry Festival on July 
6, 2013, fireworks will be launched in Grand Traverse Bay. The Captain 
of the Port, Sault Sainte Marie has determined that the air show and 
fireworks display pose various potential hazards to the public, 
including premature detonations, dangerous projectiles, and falling or 
burning debris.
    With these potential hazards in mind, the Captain of the Port Sault 
Sainte Marie proposes to establish a temporary safety zone pursuant to 
the authority granted in the Ports and Waterways Safety Act (33 U.S.C. 
1221 et seq.)

C. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    To safeguard against the dangers posed by the National Cherry 
Festival air show and fireworks display, the Captain of the Port, Sault 
Sainte Marie has determined that temporary safety zones are necessary. 
Thus, the Captain of the Port, Sault Sainte Marie proposes to establish 
two safety zones for the air show and fireworks display over the West 
Arm of Grand Traverse Bay.
    The proposed safety zone for the air show will be established on 
June 28, 2013, until June 30, 2013, in a position over West Grand 
Traverse Bay bounded by a line drawn from 44[deg]46'48'' N, 
085[deg]38'18'' W, then southeast to 44[deg]46'30'' N, 085[deg]35'30'' 
W, then southwest to 44[deg]46'00'' N, 085[deg]35'48'' W, then 
northwest to 44[deg]46'18'' N, 085[deg]38'18'' W, then back to the 
point of origin.
    This proposed safety zone will be effective from 12 p.m. on June 
28, 2013, until 3 p.m. on June 30, 2013. This proposed safety zone will 
be enforced daily from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m.
    A proposed safety zone will be established on July 6, 2013, for the 
National Cherry Festival Fireworks display over West Grand Traverse Bay 
within the arc of a circle with a 1000-foot radius from the fireworks 
launch site located on a barge in position 44[deg]46'12'' N, 
085[deg]37'06'' W.
    This proposed safety zone will be effective and enforced from 10 
p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on July 6, 2013.
    Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the proposed safety 
zones is prohibited unless authorized by the

[[Page 25409]]

Captain of the Port, Sault Sainte Marie, or his on-scene 
representative. All persons and vessels authorized to enter the 
proposed safety zones shall comply with the instructions of the Coast 
Guard Captain of the Port or the designated on-scene representative. 
The Captain of the Port or his on-scene representative may be contacted 
via VHF Channel 16.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on 13 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, 
and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits 
under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and 
Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. It is not ``significant'' 
under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of 
Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this proposed rule is not a 
significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have 
minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, 
will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, 
and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues.
    The safety zones established by this proposed rule will be 
relatively small and enforced for a relatively short time. Also, the 
safety zones are designed to minimize their impacts on navigable waters 
in that vessels may still transit unrestricted portions of the 
waterways. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still 
transit through the safety zones when permitted by the Captain of the 
Port, Sault Sainte Marie. On the whole, the Coast Guard expects 
insignificant adverse impact to mariners from the enforcement of this 
proposed rule.

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 may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels 
intending to transit around West Grand Traverse Bay, Traverse City, 
Michigan, between 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. on June 28 to June 30, 2013, 
and from 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on July 6, 2013.
    These proposed safety zones will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities for the reasons 
discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above.
    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 MST1 Thomas Link, Prevention Department, Coast Guard 
Sector Sault Sainte Marie, MI at (906) 253-2443. 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 would call for no new collection of information 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

5. Federalism

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

6. 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.

7. Taking of Private Property

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

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. Indian Tribal Governments

    This proposed 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.

11. 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.

12. Technical Standards

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

13. 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

[[Page 25410]]

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 is 
categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph (34) (g), of the 
Commandant Instruction because it involves the establishment of a 
safety zone. 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.
