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 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. 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 might disproportionately affect children. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 13. Technical Standards This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14.

This rule simply promulgates the operating regulations or procedures for drawbridges. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2– 1, paragraph (32)(e), of the Instruction.

Regulatory History and Information On March 29, 2013, The Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled Safety Triathlon; Milwaukee Harbor; Milwaukee, WI in the Federal Register (2013–07281). We did not receive any comments in response to the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested and none was held. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 165 [Docket No. USCG–2013–0140] RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone; USA Triathlon; Milwaukee Harbor, Milwaukee, WI Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone within Milwaukee Harbor, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This safety zone is intended to restrict vessels from a portion of Milwaukee Harbor due to the 2013 and 2014 Olympic and Sprint Distance National Championships. This safety zone is necessary to protect the surrounding public and vessels from the mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 May 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 B. Basis and Purpose The Olympic and Sprint Distance National Championships are scheduled to take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in August of 2013 and 2014. These events are expected to attract 4000 participants each year. Participants will compete in a swim—as part of a triathlon competition—across both the Lakeshore inlet and the Discovery World Marina within Milwaukee Harbor. The swim portion of the National Championship is anticipated to occur on August 10 and 11, 2013, and on August 9 and 10, 2014. The Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan, has PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 31415 determined that the likelihood of transiting watercraft during the swim competition involving a large number of competitors presents a significant risk of serious injuries or fatalities. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule The Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan, has determined that a safety zone is necessary to mitigate the aforementioned safety risks. Thus, this rule establishes a safety zone that encompasses all waters of Milwaukee Harbor, including Lakeshore inlet and Discovery World Marina, west of a line across the entrance to the Discovery World Marina connecting 43°02′15.1″ N, 087°53′37.4″ W and 43°01′44.2″ N, 087°53′44.6″ W (NAD 83). This rule will establish a safety zone within Milwaukee Harbor for the 2013 and 2014 calendar years. This rule will be effective from August 1, 2013, until August 30, 2014. Additionally, the Coast Guard anticipates that this safety zone will be enforced from 6:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. on August 10 and 11, 2013. This 2013 enforcement schedule may change, and in the event of a change, the Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan, will establish an updated enforcement schedule with a Notice of Enforcement. Likewise, the Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan, will establish the 2014 enforcement schedule via a Notice of Enforcement. The Captain of the Port Lake Michigan will use all appropriate means to notify the public when the safety zone established by this rule will be enforced. Consistent with 33 CFR 165.7(a), such means may include, among other things, publication in the Federal Register, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, Local Notice to Mariners, or, upon request, by facsimile (fax). Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within these safety zones during the period of enforcement is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan, or his or her designated on-scene representative. The Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan, or his or her designated on-scene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. D.
