Regulatory History and Information On April 6, 2007, the Coast Guard published an NPRM for the events that are listed within this regulation and made them available for public comment (72 FR 17062). No comments were received. The Coast Guard followed this NPRM with a final rule on September 27, 2007. C. Basis and Purpose This proposed rule will remove 1 marine event and amend 5 annual marine events listed in 33 CFR 100. This proposed rule will amend 33 CFR Part 100 by making updates within the following sections: 33 CFR 100.903, Harborfest Dragon Boat Race; South Haven, MI. The Harborfest Dragon Boat Race is an annual event involving an estimated 250 participants maneuvering self-propelled vessels within a portion of the Black River in South Haven, MI. The organizer for this event submitted an application showing a date that is different from what is currently codified within the CFR. For that reason the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.903 to reflect an updated effective date for this event of Saturday and Sunday of the 4th weekend of June, from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. 33 CFR 100.904; Celebrate Americafest; Green Bay, WI. This event will be removed by this proposed rule because it has been codified within 33 CFR 165.929 Safety Zones; Annual events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan zone. The Coast Guard determined from past experience with this event that a safety zone best addresses the safety hazards associated with this event. 33 CFR 100.905; Door County Triathlon; Door County, WI. The swim portion of the Door County Triathlon is expected to involve thousands of participants in the waters of Horseshoe Bay—a portion of Green Bay. As this event is currently listed, the effective PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 date expired on July 23 and 24, 2011. The Coast Guard has spoken with the event organizer and confirmed that this Triathlon is expected to reoccur annually. For that reason, the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.905 to reflect an updated effective date for this event. Likewise, this rule proposes to amend the location and size of the regulated area for this event. This rule proposes to shrink the size of the regulated area by 1000 yards and move the regulated area into the waters of Horseshoe Bay, some 600 yards southeast of its currently-listed location. 33 CFR 100.906; Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival Waterski Show; Grand Haven, MI. This rule proposes to amend the effective date of this event so that, should the date change, the Coast Guard will give notice to the public of the effective date by Notice of Enforcement. 33 CFR 100.907; Milwaukee River Challenge; Milwaukee, WI. The Milwaukee River Challenge is a rowing competition involving 40′ and 60′ rowing shells. The event is expected to involve hundreds of participants and spectators. The event organizer for the Milwaukee River Challenge informed the Coast Guard that the Milwaukee River Challenge Race will take place at an earlier time than is currently listed in 33 CFR 100.907. The event organizer further informed the Coast Guard that the rowing shells involved in the Milwaukee River Challenge will race along a portion of the Menomonee River as well as the Milwaukee River. As it is currently listed in 33 CFR 100.907, only the Milwaukee River is named within the ‘‘Regulated Area’’ section. 33 CFR 100.909; Chinatown Chamber of Commerce Dragon Boat Race; Chicago, IL. The Chinatown Chamber of Commerce Dragon Boat Race is an annual event involving an estimated 1000 participants maneuvering selfpropelled vessels within a portion of the Chicago River in Chicago, IL. The organizer for this event submitted an application showing a date that is different from what is currently codified within the CFR, and is expected to differ in the future. For that reason the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.909 to reflect an updated effective date for this event of the second Friday and Saturday of July from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For each of these events, the Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan, has determined that the likely combination of a race involving a large number of competitors, spectators, and transiting commercial craft in a congested area of water presents significant safety risks. These risks include collisions among E:\FR\FM\14JNP1.SGM 14JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 115 / Friday, June 14, 2013 / Proposed Rules competitor and spectator vessels, injury to swimmers from transiting water craft, capsizing, and drowning. D. Discussion of Proposed Rule This proposed rule is intended to ensure safety of life and property on the navigable waters immediately prior to, during, and immediately after regattas or marine parades. This proposed rule will establish restrictions upon, and control the movement of, vessels in a specified area of the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan zone. The Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan will notify the public of the enforcement of the special local regulations in this proposal by all appropriate means. Such means of notification will include, but are not limited to, Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local Notice to Mariners. The events within this proposed rule are expected to occur on certain dates each year. Because these dates are subject to change, the Coast Guard will provide notice of any change in date via a Notice of Enforcement. Additionally, the Coast Guard will also provide a notice via a Broadcast Notice to Mariners. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS E. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed 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 proposed 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. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The special local regulations established by this proposed rule will be periodic, of short duration, and designed to minimize impact on navigable waters. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:28 Jun 13, 2013 Jkt 229001 are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the proposed regulated areas when permitted by the Captain of the Port. 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 proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in affected waters within the Lake Michigan Zone on the days in which these special local regulations are enforced. This proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 104– 121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 4. Collection of Information This proposed rule would call for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 35785 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 proposed rule under that Order and determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism. 6. 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 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble. 7. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would not affect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. 8. Civil Justice Reform This proposed 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. 9. Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This proposed rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. 10. Indian Tribal Governments This proposed 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 E:\FR\FM\14JNP1.SGM 14JNP1 35786 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 115 / Friday, June 14, 2013 / Proposed Rules power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. 11. Energy Effects This proposed rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. 12. Technical Standards This proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 13. Environment We have analyzed this proposed 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 made a determination 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 special local regulations issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine parade, and, therefore it is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule.

B. Regulatory History and Information

    On April 6, 2007, the Coast Guard published an NPRM for the events 
that are listed within this regulation and made them available for 
public comment (72 FR 17062). No comments were received. The Coast 
Guard followed this NPRM with a final rule on September 27, 2007.

C. Basis and Purpose

    This proposed rule will remove 1 marine event and amend 5 annual 
marine events listed in 33 CFR 100. This proposed rule will amend 33 
CFR Part 100 by making updates within the following sections:
    33 CFR 100.903, Harborfest Dragon Boat Race; South Haven, MI. The 
Harborfest Dragon Boat Race is an annual event involving an estimated 
250 participants maneuvering self-propelled vessels within a portion of 
the Black River in South Haven, MI. The organizer for this event 
submitted an application showing a date that is different from what is 
currently codified within the CFR. For that reason the Coast Guard 
proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.903 to reflect an updated effective date 
for this event of Saturday and Sunday of the 4th weekend of June, from 
6 a.m. until 7 p.m.
    33 CFR 100.904; Celebrate Americafest; Green Bay, WI. This event 
will be removed by this proposed rule because it has been codified 
within 33 CFR 165.929 Safety Zones; Annual events requiring safety 
zones in the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan zone. The Coast Guard 
determined from past experience with this event that a safety zone best 
addresses the safety hazards associated with this event.
    33 CFR 100.905; Door County Triathlon; Door County, WI. The swim 
portion of the Door County Triathlon is expected to involve thousands 
of participants in the waters of Horseshoe Bay--a portion of Green Bay. 
As this event is currently listed, the effective date expired on July 
23 and 24, 2011. The Coast Guard has spoken with the event organizer 
and confirmed that this Triathlon is expected to reoccur annually. For 
that reason, the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.905 to 
reflect an updated effective date for this event. Likewise, this rule 
proposes to amend the location and size of the regulated area for this 
event. This rule proposes to shrink the size of the regulated area by 
1000 yards and move the regulated area into the waters of Horseshoe 
Bay, some 600 yards southeast of its currently-listed location.
    33 CFR 100.906; Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival Waterski Show; 
Grand Haven, MI. This rule proposes to amend the effective date of this 
event so that, should the date change, the Coast Guard will give notice 
to the public of the effective date by Notice of Enforcement.
    33 CFR 100.907; Milwaukee River Challenge; Milwaukee, WI.
    The Milwaukee River Challenge is a rowing competition involving 40' 
and 60' rowing shells. The event is expected to involve hundreds of 
participants and spectators. The event organizer for the Milwaukee 
River Challenge informed the Coast Guard that the Milwaukee River 
Challenge Race will take place at an earlier time than is currently 
listed in 33 CFR 100.907. The event organizer further informed the 
Coast Guard that the rowing shells involved in the Milwaukee River 
Challenge will race along a portion of the Menomonee River as well as 
the Milwaukee River. As it is currently listed in 33 CFR 100.907, only 
the Milwaukee River is named within the ``Regulated Area'' section.
    33 CFR 100.909; Chinatown Chamber of Commerce Dragon Boat Race; 
Chicago, IL. The Chinatown Chamber of Commerce Dragon Boat Race is an 
annual event involving an estimated 1000 participants maneuvering self-
propelled vessels within a portion of the Chicago River in Chicago, IL. 
The organizer for this event submitted an application showing a date 
that is different from what is currently codified within the CFR, and 
is expected to differ in the future. For that reason the Coast Guard 
proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.909 to reflect an updated effective date 
for this event of the second Friday and Saturday of July from 11:30 
a.m. to 5 p.m.
    For each of these events, the Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan, 
has determined that the likely combination of a race involving a large 
number of competitors, spectators, and transiting commercial craft in a 
congested area of water presents significant safety risks. These risks 
include collisions among

[[Page 35785]]

competitor and spectator vessels, injury to swimmers from transiting 
water craft, capsizing, and drowning.

D. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    This proposed rule is intended to ensure safety of life and 
property on the navigable waters immediately prior to, during, and 
immediately after regattas or marine parades. This proposed rule will 
establish restrictions upon, and control the movement of, vessels in a 
specified area of the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan zone.
    The Captain of the Port, Lake Michigan will notify the public of 
the enforcement of the special local regulations in this proposal by 
all appropriate means. Such means of notification will include, but are 
not limited to, Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local Notice to 
Mariners. The events within this proposed rule are expected to occur on 
certain dates each year. Because these dates are subject to change, the 
Coast Guard will provide notice of any change in date via a Notice of 
Enforcement. Additionally, the Coast Guard will also provide a notice 
via a Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

E. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed 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 proposed 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. It is not 
``significant'' under the regulatory policies and procedures of the 
Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
    We conclude that this proposed rule is not a significant regulatory 
action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the 
economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely 
alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise 
any novel legal or policy issues. The special local regulations 
established by this proposed rule will be periodic, of short duration, 
and designed to minimize impact on navigable waters. Thus, restrictions 
on vessel movement are expected to be minimal. Under certain 
conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the proposed 
regulated areas when permitted by the Captain of the Port.

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 
proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of 
which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels 
intending to transit or anchor in affected waters within the Lake 
Michigan Zone on the days in which these special local regulations are 
enforced.
    This proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities for the reasons discussed in the 
Regulatory Planning and Review section above.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed rule 
would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment 
(see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to 
what degree this rule would economically affect it.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 
entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any 
policy or action of the Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would call 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 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 proposed rule under that Order and 
determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism.

6. 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 proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this 
proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble.

7. Taking of Private Property

    This proposed rule would not affect a taking of private property or 
otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, 
Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected 
Property Rights.

8. Civil Justice Reform

    This proposed 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.

9. Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks

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

10. Indian Tribal Governments

    This proposed 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

[[Page 35786]]

power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian 
tribes.

11. Energy Effects

    This proposed rule is not a ``significant energy action'' under 
Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That 
Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use.

12. Technical Standards

    This proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we 
did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

13. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed 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 
made a determination 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 special 
local regulations issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine 
parade, and, therefore it is categorically excluded from further review 
under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 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. We seek any comments or information that may 
lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this 
proposed rule.
