SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking COTP Captain of the Port 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. The Coast Guard did not receive information regarding the date and scope of the event with sufficient time to solicit public comments before the start of the event. The sponsor was not aware of the requirements for submitting an application for a marine event, resulting in a late notification to the Coast Guard. E:\FR\FM\10JNR1.SGM 10JNR1 34578 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 111 / Monday, June 10, 2013 / Rules and Regulations The sponsor is unable to reschedule this event due to the Ad Club’s 100th Anniversary Gala celebration being held at The Institute Of Contemporary Art in conjunction with the fireworks display. Due to the dangers posed by the pyrotechnics used in this fireworks display, the safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of event participants, spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event area. For the safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to have these regulations in effect during the event. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), for the same reasons as above, the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register because it is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. Any delay in the effective date of this rule would expose spectators, vessels and other property to the hazards associated with pyrotechnics used in the fireworks display. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the temporary rule is 33 U.S.C., 1231, 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define safety zones. A fireworks display is scheduled to occur as part of the Ad Club’s 100th Anniversary Gala celebration at The Institute of Contemporary Art. The COTP Boston has determined that fireworks displays in close proximity to watercraft and waterfront structures pose a significant risk to public safety and property. Establishing a safety zone around the location of this fireworks event will help ensure the safety of spectators, vessels and other property and help minimize the associated risks. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES C. Discussion of Final Rule This safety zone will encompass a 600-foot radius around the firework barge. The fireworks display will occur from approximately 9 p.m. until 10 p.m. on June 26, 2013. To ensure public safety, the safety zone will be enforced immediately before, during, and after the fireworks launch. If the event is cancelled, then the safety zone will not be enforced. 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 or executive orders. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:02 Jun 07, 2013 Jkt 229001 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) Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. The Coast Guard has determined that this rule is not a significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The safety zone will be in effect for approximately two hours during the evening. The Coast Guard expects minimal adverse impact to mariners from the activation of the zone; this zone is located on the outer edge of the Boston Main Ship Channel and vessels have sufficient room to transit around the safety zone; and vessels may enter or pass through the affected waterway with the permission of the Captain of the Port (COTP) or the COTP’s designated on-scene representative; and notification of the safety zone will be made to mariners through the local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the event. 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 certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: This rule will be in effect for only two hours on a single day during the late evening; vessels may transit in all portions of the affected waterway except for those areas covered by the safety zone and vessels may enter or pass through the affected waterway with the permission of the COTP or the COTP’s designated on-scene representative. Notification of the safety zone will be made to mariners through the Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the event. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 understanding this rule. If you believe that this 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 calls 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 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 it 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 expenditure, we E:\FR\FM\10JNR1.SGM 10JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 111 / Monday, June 10, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 14.

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. The Coast Guard did 
not receive information regarding the date and scope of the event with 
sufficient time to solicit public comments before the start of the 
event. The sponsor was not aware of the requirements for submitting an 
application for a marine event, resulting in a late notification to the 
Coast Guard.

[[Page 34578]]

The sponsor is unable to reschedule this event due to the Ad Club's 
100th Anniversary Gala celebration being held at The Institute Of 
Contemporary Art in conjunction with the fireworks display. Due to the 
dangers posed by the pyrotechnics used in this fireworks display, the 
safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of event 
participants, spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event 
area. For the safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to 
have these regulations in effect during the event.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), for the same reasons as above, the Coast 
Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less 
than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register because it is 
impracticable and contrary to the public interest. Any delay in the 
effective date of this rule would expose spectators, vessels and other 
property to the hazards associated with pyrotechnics used in the 
fireworks display.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for the temporary rule is 33 U.S.C., 1231, 46 
U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; Public Law 107-295, 
116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 
0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define safety 
zones.
    A fireworks display is scheduled to occur as part of the Ad Club's 
100th Anniversary Gala celebration at The Institute of Contemporary 
Art. The COTP Boston has determined that fireworks displays in close 
proximity to watercraft and waterfront structures pose a significant 
risk to public safety and property. Establishing a safety zone around 
the location of this fireworks event will help ensure the safety of 
spectators, vessels and other property and help minimize the associated 
risks.

C. Discussion of Final Rule

    This safety zone will encompass a 600-foot radius around the 
firework barge. The fireworks display will occur from approximately 9 
p.m. until 10 p.m. on June 26, 2013. To ensure public safety, the 
safety zone will be enforced immediately before, during, and after the 
fireworks launch. If the event is cancelled, then the safety zone will 
not be enforced.

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 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) Executive Order 12866 or under 
section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget 
has not reviewed it under that Order.
    The Coast Guard has determined that this rule is not a significant 
regulatory action for the following reasons: The safety zone will be in 
effect for approximately two hours during the evening. The Coast Guard 
expects minimal adverse impact to mariners from the activation of the 
zone; this zone is located on the outer edge of the Boston Main Ship 
Channel and vessels have sufficient room to transit around the safety 
zone; and vessels may enter or pass through the affected waterway with 
the permission of the Captain of the Port (COTP) or the COTP's 
designated on-scene representative; and notification of the safety zone 
will be made to mariners through the local Notice to Mariners, 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the event.

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 
certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
    This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: This 
rule will be in effect for only two hours on a single day during the 
late evening; vessels may transit in all portions of the affected 
waterway except for those areas covered by the safety zone and vessels 
may enter or pass through the affected waterway with the permission of 
the COTP or the COTP's designated on-scene representative. Notification 
of the safety zone will be made to mariners through the Local Notice to 
Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the event.

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 you believe that this 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 calls 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 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 it 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 expenditure, we

[[Page 34579]]

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 
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 a safety zone. 
This rule is categorically excluded from further review under, 
paragraph 34(g) of figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An 
environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.
