ACTION: Notice of deviation from drawbridge regulation. AGENCY: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Kansas City Southern vertical lift span bridge across the Neches River, mile 19.5, at Beaumont, Texas. The deviation is necessary to replace the north vertical lift joints on the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain closed to navigation for twelve consecutive hours. DATES: This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. through 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, 2013. ADDRESSES: The docket for this deviation, [USCG–2013–0360] is available at http://www.regulations.gov.

If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Barbara Hairston, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366– 9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Kansas City Southern Railroad has requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule of the vertical lift span bridge across the Neches River at mile 19.5 in Beaumont, Texas. The vertical clearance of the bridge in the closed-to-navigation position is 13 feet above Mean High Water and 140 feet above Mean High Water in the open-tonavigation position. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.971, the vertical lift span of the bridge is automated and normally not manned but will open on signal for the passage wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:13 May 16, 2013 Jkt 229001 of vessels. This deviation allows the vertical lift span of the bridge to remain closed to navigation from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, 2013. The closure is necessary in order to replace the north vertical lift joints on the bridge, which allow the bridge to be raised. This maintenance is essential for the continued operation of the bridge. Notices will be published in the Eighth Coast Guard District Local Notice to Mariners and will be broadcast via the Coast Guard Broadcast Notice to Mariners System. Navigation on the waterway consists of commercial and recreational fishing vessels, small to medium crew boats, and small tugs with and without tows. No alternate routes are available for the passage of vessels; however, the closure was coordinated with waterway interests who have indicated that they will be able to adjust their operations around the proposed work schedule. Small vessels may pass under the bridge while in the closed-to-navigation position provided caution is exercised. The bridge will be able to open manually in the event of an emergency, but it will take about one hour to do so. Due to prior experience and coordination with waterway users, it has been determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on vessels that use the waterway. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: May 7, 2013. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY ACTION: ending at mile marker 464.5, extending bank to bank. This safety zone is necessary to protect persons and vessels from the potential safety hazards associated with the Riverbend Festival fireworks. Entry into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Ohio Valley or designated representative. Sfmt 4700 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 it is impracticable. Due to the need for immediate action, the restriction of vessel traffic is necessary to protect life, property and the environment; E:\FR\FM\17MYR1.SGM 17MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 96 / Friday, May 17, 2013 / Rules and Regulations therefore, a 30-day notice and comment period is impracticable. In the future, the Coast Guard intends to publish this event as an annual fireworks display requiring safety zones in the schedule located at 33 CFR 165.801. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delay in the effective date will be contrary to the public interest. Immediate action is needed to ensure public safety in the vicinity of the fireworks launching area. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES B. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard is issuing this safety zone under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 1231, 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, 160.5, and 165 Subpart C; Pub. L. 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, collectively authorize the Captain of the Port to establish and define regulatory safety zones. The Captain of the Port Ohio Valley is establishing a safety zone for the waters of the Tennessee River, beginning at mile marker 463.5 and ending at 464.5 to protect persons and vessels from potential safety hazards associated with the Riverbend Festival fireworks. The Riverbend Festival fireworks display takes place on the Tennessee River and is launched from the right descending bank at mile marker 464.0. Fireworks displays taking place on or over a waterway pose possible hazards to the marine traffic and spectators on the waterway during the display. The Coast Guard determined that a temporary safety zone is needed to protect life and property during the fireworks display. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The Captain of the Port Ohio Valley is establishing a safety zone for the waters of the Tennessee River, beginning at mile marker 463.5 and ending at 464.5. Vessels shall not enter into, depart from, or move within this safety zone without permission from the Captain of the Port Ohio Valley or his authorized representative. Persons or vessels requiring entry into or passage through a safety zone must request permission from the Captain of the Port Ohio Valley, or a designated representative. They may be contacted on VHF–FM Channel 13 or 16, or through Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley at 1–800–253–7465. This rule is effective, and will be enforced, from 10:30 p.m. until midnight on June 15, 2013. The Captain of the Port Ohio VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:13 May 16, 2013 Jkt 229001 Valley will inform the public through broadcast notices to mariners of the enforcement period for the safety zone as well as any changes in the planned schedule. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this 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 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 that Order. This safety zone restricts transit on the Tennessee River from mile marker 463.5 through 464.5 and covers a period of one and a half hour period, from 10:30 p.m. through midnight on June 15, 2013. Due to its short duration and limited scope, it does not pose a significant regulatory impact. Broadcast Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of this safety zone so that they may plan accordingly for this short restriction on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the restricted area. 2. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 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 rule. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29021 jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT, above. Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency’s responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1– 888–REG–FAIR (1–888–734–3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 4. Collection of Information This 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 power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this 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 INTFORMATION 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 rule will not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. E:\FR\FM\17MYR1.SGM 17MYR1 29022 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 96 / Friday, May 17, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 8. Taking of Private Property This rule will 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 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 We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. 11. 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. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

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 it is impracticable. Due to the need 
for immediate action, the restriction of vessel traffic is necessary to 
protect life, property and the environment;

[[Page 29021]]

therefore, a 30-day notice and comment period is impracticable. In the 
future, the Coast Guard intends to publish this event as an annual 
fireworks display requiring safety zones in the schedule located at 33 
CFR 165.801.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause 
exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register. Delay in the effective date will 
be contrary to the public interest. Immediate action is needed to 
ensure public safety in the vicinity of the fireworks launching area.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The Coast Guard is issuing this safety zone under the authority of 
33 U.S.C. 1231, 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, 160.5, and 165 Subpart C; Pub. L. 107-
295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 
0170.1, collectively authorize the Captain of the Port to establish and 
define regulatory safety zones.
    The Captain of the Port Ohio Valley is establishing a safety zone 
for the waters of the Tennessee River, beginning at mile marker 463.5 
and ending at 464.5 to protect persons and vessels from potential 
safety hazards associated with the Riverbend Festival fireworks. The 
Riverbend Festival fireworks display takes place on the Tennessee River 
and is launched from the right descending bank at mile marker 464.0. 
Fireworks displays taking place on or over a waterway pose possible 
hazards to the marine traffic and spectators on the waterway during the 
display. The Coast Guard determined that a temporary safety zone is 
needed to protect life and property during the fireworks display.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The Captain of the Port Ohio Valley is establishing a safety zone 
for the waters of the Tennessee River, beginning at mile marker 463.5 
and ending at 464.5. Vessels shall not enter into, depart from, or move 
within this safety zone without permission from the Captain of the Port 
Ohio Valley or his authorized representative. Persons or vessels 
requiring entry into or passage through a safety zone must request 
permission from the Captain of the Port Ohio Valley, or a designated 
representative. They may be contacted on VHF-FM Channel 13 or 16, or 
through Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley at 1-800-253-7465. This rule is 
effective, and will be enforced, from 10:30 p.m. until midnight on June 
15, 2013. The Captain of the Port Ohio Valley will inform the public 
through broadcast notices to mariners of the enforcement period for the 
safety zone as well as any changes in the planned schedule.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this 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 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 that Order.
    This safety zone restricts transit on the Tennessee River from mile 
marker 463.5 through 464.5 and covers a period of one and a half hour 
period, from 10:30 p.m. through midnight on June 15, 2013. Due to its 
short duration and limited scope, it does not pose a significant 
regulatory impact. Broadcast Notices to Mariners will also inform the 
community of this safety zone so that they may plan accordingly for 
this short restriction on transit. Vessel traffic may request 
permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to 
enter the restricted area.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as 
amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of 
regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ``small 
entities'' comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations 
that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their 
fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 
50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities.

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 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.
    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 
employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal 
regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory 
Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory 
Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and 
rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to 
comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR 
(1-888-734-3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 
entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or 
action of the Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

    This 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 power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government. We have analyzed this 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 
INTFORMATION 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 rule will not result in 
such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in 
this preamble.

8. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will 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 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

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and does not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

11. 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 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded 
this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or 
cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This 
rule involves establishing a temporary safety zone to provide safety 
for the spectators viewing the fireworks that are being launched on the 
Tennessee River at mile marker 463.5 in for a one and a half hour 
period on one day. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-
1, paragraph (34)(g), of the Instruction.
