SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information The regulation for this fireworks display is located at 33 CFR 165.506, Table to § 165.506, section (d.) line 2. The Coast Guard plans to permanently amend the regulation at 33 CFR 165.506 at a later date to reflect this change. 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 and immediate action is needed to minimize potential danger to the public during the event. The potential dangers posed by fireworks displays conducted on the Cape Fear River with other vessel traffic makes a safety zone necessary to provide for the safety of participants, spectator craft and E:\FR\FM\25JNR1.SGM 25JNR1
