Unfunded Mandates Reform Act This rule does not impose an unfunded mandate on state, local, or tribal governments or the private sector of more than $100 million per year. The rule does not have a significant or unique effect on state, local, or tribal governments or the private sector. As discussed above, this rule removes provisions concerning previously disposed-of state program disapprovals and required program amendments for Wyoming that remain codified at 30 CFR 950.12 and 950.16, respectively. This rule neither imposes new regulatory requirements nor removes any existing regulatory requirements. A statement containing the information required by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (2 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) is not required. Federal Paperwork Reduction Act This rule does not contain collections of information that require approval by the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. National Environmental Policy Act This rule does not require an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement because section 702(d) of SMCRA, 30 U.S.C. 1292(d), provides that agency actions pertaining to approval of state regulatory programs do not constitute major Federal actions within the meaning of section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act, 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C).

Therefore, a statement of energy effects is not required. Executive Order 13175—Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments In accordance with Executive Order 13175, we have evaluated the potential effects of this rule on federally recognized Indian tribes and have determined that the removal of previously disposed-of state program disapprovals and required program amendments for Wyoming that remain codified at 30 CFR 950.12 and 950.16 would not have substantial direct effects 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. Executive Order 12630—Takings Under the criteria in Executive Order 12630, this rule does not have significant takings implications; therefore, a takings implication assessment is not required. As discussed above, this rule removes provisions concerning previously disposed-of state program disapprovals and required program amendments for Wyoming that remain codified at 30 CFR 950.12 and 950.16, respectively. This rule neither imposes new regulatory requirements nor removes any existing regulatory requirements. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES Executive Order 12988 on Civil Justice Reform Executive Order 13132—Federalism This rule complies with the requirements of Executive Order 12988.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 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) PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 to do so would be impracticable considering the event will take place before the notice can be published or comments taken. Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Portland did not receive the necessary information for this event until it was too late to issue an NPRM. Approximately 1,000 people are anticipating this event to commence as scheduled, and the event organizers are unable to reschedule the events in order to allow comment. 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 because it is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. There is insufficient time remaining to undertake a 30 day delayed effective date for this rule. B. Basis and Purpose Fireworks displays create hazardous conditions for the maritime public due to loud noises, falling debris, and explosions, combined with the heavy vessel traffic congregating near the displays. The safety zone will help ensure the safety of the maritime public by prohibiting persons and vessels from risks associated with fireworks displays. As part of the Maritime Heritage Festival Fireworks in St. Helens, OR, the festival will feature a fireworks display. The Coast Guard expects approximately 1,000 people to attend this event. Because of the aforementioned concerns, the Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone in the vicinity of the launch site. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The rule establishes a safety zone in the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port Zone. The safety zone will be established on the Columbia River, St. Helens, OR. The safety zone will extend 500 yards in all directions from Sand Island marine Park. This event will take place on Saturday July 27, 2013 from 9:45 p.m. to 10 p.m. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and E:\FR\FM\19JYR1.SGM 19JYR1
