SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Coast Guard 33 CFR Parts 100 and 165 [Docket Number USCG–2012–1036] RIN 1625–AA00; 1625–AA08 Safety Zones and Special Local Regulations; Recurring Marine Events in Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone Coast Guard, DHS. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is adding, deleting, and modifying safety zones and special local regulations and adding language to clarify time frames and notification requirements for annual marine events in the Sector Long Island Sound Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone. When these regulated areas are activated and subject to enforcement, this rule will restrict vessels from portions of water areas during these recurring events. The safety zones and special mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 May 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard promulgated safety zones and special local regulations for most of the events in the past and received no public comments. The most recently promulgated rulemaking was on April 4, 2013 when the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Safety Zones & Special Local Regulation; Recurring Marine Events in Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone’’ in the Federal Register (78 FR 20277). Prior to the NPRM being published in the Federal Register (78 FR 20277), the Coast Guard promulgated a similar rulemaking on April 4, 2012 when it published an NPRM entitled ‘‘Special Local Regulation and Safety Zones; Marine Events in Captain of the Port Sector Long Island Sound Zone’’ in the Federal Register (77 FR 20324). That NPRM was followed by a final rule published on July 5, 2012, entitled, PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 ‘‘Special Local Regulation and Safety Zones; Marine Events in Captain of the Port Sector Long Island Sound Zone’’ in the Federal Register (77 FR 39633). For all of the proposed rulemakings listed in this section no public comments were received. There were no requests received for a public meeting and due to the fact that no significant issues were identified the Coast Guard determined that no public meetings were needed. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231, 1233; 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 and 160.5; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory safety zones. This regulation carries out four related actions: (1) Establish new marine event regulated areas, (2) remove old safety zones that are no longer needed, (3) modify and update some existing regulated areas and (4) clarify event time frames and notification requirements for marine events. This will account for new events, remove events that are no longer held, and to account for modifications to several of the recurring marine events that have occurred since last year. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule No comments were received and no changes have been made to the final rule. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes and 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 those Orders. We expect the economic impact of this rule to be minimal. Although this regulation may have some impact on the E:\FR\FM\24MYR1.SGM 24MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 101 / Friday, May 24, 2013 / Rules and Regulations public, the potential impact will be minimized for the following reasons: The Coast Guard has previously promulgated safety zones, security zones or special local regulations, in accordance with 33 CFR Parts 100 and 165, for all event areas contained within this regulation and has not received notice of any negative impact caused by any of the safety zones or special local regulations. Vessels will only be restricted from safety zones and special local regulation areas for a short duration of time. Vessels may transit in portions of the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the regulated areas. Notifications of exact dates and times of the enforcement period will be made to the local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners or through a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register. No new or additional restrictions would be imposed on vessel traffic. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 Coast Guard received zero comments from the Small Business Administration on this rule. 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. The regulated areas will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The regulated areas will be of limited size and of short duration; vessels that can safely do so may navigate in all other portions of the waterways except for the areas designated as regulated areas; most of these regulated areas have been promulgated in the past with no public comments submitted. Additionally, before the effective period, the Coast Guard will issue notice of the time and location of each regulated area through all appropriate means including but not limited to Local Notice to Mariners or Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 May 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION 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. CONTACT, 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 INFORMATION 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 an 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 PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 31403 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 determined 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 rule involves the establishment of safety zones and special local regulations. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) & (h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction.

We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.

Events in Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is adding, deleting, and modifying safety 
zones and special local regulations and adding language to clarify time 
frames and notification requirements for annual marine events in the

regulated areas are activated and subject to enforcement, this rule 
will restrict vessels from portions of water areas during these 
recurring events. The safety zones and special local regulations will 
facilitate public notification of events and provide protective 
measures for the maritime public and event participants from the 
hazards associated with these recurring events.

DATES: This rule is effective June 24, 2013.

DHS Department of Homeland Security
FR Federal Register
NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard promulgated safety zones and special local 
regulations for most of the events in the past and received no public 
comments. The most recently promulgated rulemaking was on April 4, 2013 
when the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
entitled ``Safety Zones & Special Local Regulation; Recurring Marine 
Events in Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone'' in the Federal 
Register (78 FR 20277).
    Prior to the NPRM being published in the Federal Register (78 FR 
20277), the Coast Guard promulgated a similar rulemaking on April 4, 
2012 when it published an NPRM entitled ``Special Local Regulation and 
Safety Zones; Marine Events in Captain of the Port Sector Long Island 
Sound Zone'' in the Federal Register (77 FR 20324). That NPRM was 
followed by a final rule published on July 5, 2012, entitled, ``Special 
Local Regulation and Safety Zones; Marine Events in Captain of the Port 
Sector Long Island Sound Zone'' in the Federal Register (77 FR 39633).
    For all of the proposed rulemakings listed in this section no 
public comments were received. There were no requests received for a 
public meeting and due to the fact that no significant issues were 
identified the Coast Guard determined that no public meetings were 
needed.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for this rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231, 1233; 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 and 160.5; Public Law 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of 
Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize 
the Coast Guard to define regulatory safety zones.
    This regulation carries out four related actions: (1) Establish new 
marine event regulated areas, (2) remove old safety zones that are no 
longer needed, (3) modify and update some existing regulated areas and 
(4) clarify event time frames and notification requirements for marine 
events. This will account for new events, remove events that are no 
longer held, and to account for modifications to several of the 
recurring marine events that have occurred since last year.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    No comments were received and no changes have been made to the 
final rule.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on these statutes and 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 those Orders.
    We expect the economic impact of this rule to be minimal. Although 
this regulation may have some impact on the

[[Page 31403]]

public, the potential impact will be minimized for the following 
reasons:
    The Coast Guard has previously promulgated safety zones, security 
zones or special local regulations, in accordance with 33 CFR Parts 100 
and 165, for all event areas contained within this regulation and has 
not received notice of any negative impact caused by any of the safety 
zones or special local regulations.
    Vessels will only be restricted from safety zones and special local 
regulation areas for a short duration of time. Vessels may transit in 
portions of the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the 
regulated areas. Notifications of exact dates and times of the 
enforcement period will be made to the local maritime community through 
the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners or 
through a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register. No new or 
additional restrictions would be imposed on vessel traffic.

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 Coast Guard 
received zero comments from the Small Business Administration on this 
rule. 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. The regulated areas will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the 
following reasons: The regulated areas will be of limited size and of 
short duration; vessels that can safely do so may navigate in all other 
portions of the waterways except for the areas designated as regulated 
areas; most of these regulated areas have been promulgated in the past 
with no public comments submitted. Additionally, before the effective 
period, the Coast Guard will issue notice of the time and location of 
each regulated area through all appropriate means including but not 
limited to Local Notice to Mariners or Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

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 
INFORMATION 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 an 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 determined 
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 rule involves the establishment of safety zones and 
special local regulations. This rule is categorically excluded from 
further review under paragraph 34(g) & (h) of Figure 2-1 of the 
Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting 
this determination

[[Page 31404]]

and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are 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 rule.

                                          of the races. They must remain
