Notice of proposed rulemaking and request for comments. ACTION: The Corps of Engineers is proposing to amend its regulations to establish a new danger zone in waters of the Pacific Ocean off the Kekaha Range Facility, Barking Sands, Island of Kauai, Hawaii. The proposed amendment is necessary for the Hawaii Army National Guard to continue small arms training operations at the Kekaha Range Facility and to protect the public from potentially hazardous conditions which may exist as a result of that use. The proposed amendment would prohibit, on an intermittent basis, vessels from entering a six mile wide section of the Pacific Ocean that narrows to a 0.7 mile wide section along the shoreline fronting the Kekaha Range Facility without first obtaining permission from the Commanding Officer of Kekaha Range Facility.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Executive Summary

    The purpose of this regulatory action is to establish a new danger 
zone in waters of the Pacific Ocean off the Kekaha Range Facility at 
Barking Sands, Island of Kauai, Hawaii.
    The Corps authority to establish this danger zone is Section 7 of 
the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and 
Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat 892; 33 
U.S.C. 3).

Background

    Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of the Rivers and Harbors 
Act of 1917 (40 Stat. 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and Chapter XIX of the Army 
Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat. 892; 33 U.S.C. 3), the Corps of 
Engineers is proposing to amend the regulations at 33 CFR part 334 to 
establish a new danger zone in the waters of the Pacific Ocean off the 
Kekaha Range Facility at Barking Sands, Island of Kauai, Hawaii.

Procedural Requirements

a. Review Under Executive Order 12866

    This proposed rule is issued with respect to a military function of 
the Defense Department and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do 
not apply.

b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This proposed rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (Pub. L. 96-354) which requires the preparation of a 
regulatory flexibility analysis for any regulation that will have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
(i.e., small businesses and small governments). Unless information is 
obtained to the contrary during the public notice comment period, the 
Corps expects that the establishment of this danger zone would have 
practically no economic impact on the public, no anticipated 
navigational hazard, or interference with existing waterway traffic. 
This proposed rule if adopted, will have no significant economic impact 
on small entities.

c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act

    Due to the administrative nature of this action and because there 
is no intended change in the use of the area, the Corps expects that 
this regulation, if adopted, will not have a significant impact to the 
quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an 
environmental impact statement will not be required. An environmental 
assessment will be prepared after the public notice period is closed 
and all comments have been received and considered. After it is 
prepared, it may be reviewed at the District office listed at the end 
of the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section, above.

d. Unfunded Mandates Act

    This proposed rule does not impose an enforceable duty among the 
private sector and, therefore, it is not a Federal private sector 
mandate and it is not subject to the requirements of either Section 202 
or Section 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Act. We have also found under 
Section 203 of the Act, that small governments will not be 
significantly and uniquely affected by this rulemaking.

    (4) Boaters will have complete access to the danger zone whenever 
there is no weapons firing scheduled, which will be indicated by the 
absence of any warning flags, pennants, or beacons displayed ashore.
    (5) The danger zone is not considered safe for boaters whenever 
weapons firing is in progress. Boaters shall expeditiously vacate the 
danger zone at best speed and by the most direct route whenever weapons 
firing is in progress. Weapons firing will be suspended as long as 
there is a vessel in the danger zone. Whenever a boater disregards the 
publicized warning signals that hazardous weapons firing is in 
progress, the boater will be personally requested to expeditiously 
vacate the danger zone by KRF personnel hailing the vessel on VHF 
channel 16 or contacting the vessel directly by surface craft.
    (6) Observation posts will be manned whenever any weapons firing is 
scheduled and in progress. Visibility will be sufficient to maintain 
visual surveillance of the entire danger zone and for an additional 
distance of 5 miles in all directions whenever weapons firing is in 
progress.
    (c) The enforcing agency. The regulations shall be enforced by the 
Commanding Officer, Kekaha Range Facility, Hawaiian Area, Barking 
Sands, Kauai, Hawaii and such agencies or persons as he or she may 
designate.
