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 a special local regulation issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine parade. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

Regulatory History and Information On March 22, 2013, the Coast Guard provided the public with notice and an opportunity to comment when it published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled, ‘‘Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Events in Northern New England,’’ in the Federal Register. (78 FR 17613). The comment period ended on May 21, 2013, with no comments. 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. There is insufficient time to undergo a 30 day delayed effective date and thus it is impracticable. Any delay encountered in this regulation’s effective date would also be contrary to public interest since immediate action is needed to provide for the safety of life and property on navigable waters from the hazardous nature of fireworks, high speed power boat races, and large gatherings of swimmers in the waterway. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this temporary 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 and regulated areas. This rulemaking establishes special local regulations for power boat races and marine parades and safety zones for marine events involving fireworks displays and swim events on the PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 34887 navigable waters of the COTP Sector NNE Zone. This rule is necessary to protect waterway users from the dangers inherent to these activities. C. Discussion of the Final Rule This temporary rule establishes special local regulations and safety zones for eighteen events in the COTP Sector NNE Zone. Specific event names, locations, dates and times are listed below in the regulation text. Because large numbers of spectator vessels are expected to congregate around the location of these events, these regulated areas are needed to protect both spectators and participants from the safety hazards created by them including vessels operating at high speeds and unexpected pyrotechnics detonation and burning debris. This rule prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the COTP or designated representative. The Coast Guard has determined that these regulated areas will not have a significant impact on vessel traffic due to their temporary nature, limited size, and the fact that vessels are allowed to transit the navigable waters outside of the regulated areas. The COTP will cause public notifications to be made by all appropriate means including but not limited to the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 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. The Coast Guard determined that this rule is not a significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The regulated areas will be of limited duration and cover only a small portion of the navigable waterways. Furthermore, vessels may transit the navigable E:\FR\FM\11JNR1.SGM 11JNR1
