This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, participating vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through or anchoring within this safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated representative.

Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for this event on June 7, 2013 (78 FR 34300). We received no comments or requests for a public meeting. 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. Delay would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. The Coast Guard did not receive the necessary information for this event with sufficient time to publish both an NPRM and undertake a 30 day delayed effective date. Seeking public input, the Coast Guard issued an NPRM to give notice and seek public comment. Immediate action is required to ensure the safety zone is in place to protect participants, crew, spectators, participating vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway during the event. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this temporary rule is the Ports and Waterways Safety Act which authorizes the Coast Guard to establish safety zones (33 U.S.C. sections 1221 et seq.). The City of Bullhead is sponsoring the Bullhead City Regatta, which is held on the navigable waters of the Colorado River in Bullhead City, AZ. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, sponsor vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway. This event involves participants floating down the river on inflatable rafts, inner tubes and floating platforms as part of the Bullhead City organized event. The size of vessels used will vary in length. Approximately 30,000 people are expected to participate in this event. The sponsor will provide for more than 35 patrol and rescue boats to help facilitate the event and ensure public safety. As the participants conclude each section of the river, the associated safety zone will collapse behind the last group of boaters to ensure the full use of the waterway to the maximum extent without compromising the safety of the participants and safety support teams for this large waterway user marine event. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:09 Jul 22, 2013 Jkt 229001 2. Impact on Small Entities 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. 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 received no comments from the Small Business Administration on this rule and the impact of a temporary one day closure of the portion of the Colorado River for this annual event. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in a portion of the waters of the Colorado River between Davis Camp to Rotary Park in Bullhead City, Arizona from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on August 10, 2013. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. Although the safety zone would apply to the entire width of the river, traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission of the Coast Guard patrol commander and the safety zone will collapse as the last event participants depart the starting point. Before the effective period, the Coast Guard will publish a Local Notice to Mariners (LNM). 1. Regulatory Planning and Review 3. Assistance for Small Entities 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. This determination is based on the size and location of the safety zone. The safety zone will encompass all navigable waters in the vicinity of Davis Camp to Rotary Park in Bullhead City, AZ. Vessels may transit through the safety zone during the specified times if they request and receive permission from the Captain of the Port or his designated representative. 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 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. 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 The Coast Guard received no comments on the NPRM. However, several concerned citizens have contacted Coast Guard Sector San Diego this year and past years inquiring more about the exclusion of the waterway for non-paying waterway users, the rights of the public to have free access to travel the river, and excessive trash resulting from the event. The safety zone is being established this year as in past years to help provide a safe area for this widely attended event, and the sponsor has indicated other additional safety measures have been taken and fees associated with the event are used for trash clean up, volunteers and designated safety lifeguard patrols. Overall, concerns are best addressed by the event sponsor. Each of these issues has been addressed with the sponsor during the planning stages of this event, including the collapsing of the exclusionary safety zone behind the last event participants as they depart the starting point at Davis Camp towards Rotary Park down river, thus allowing for reopening full use of the waterways as soon as possible. Because changing the size or duration of the safety zone would not support overall event safety measures or fully address the concerns submitted, no changes were made to the regulatory text. D.

Collection of Information This rule will not call for a 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 rule under that Order and determined that this rule 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 INTFORMATION 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 an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8.

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.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for this 
event on June 7, 2013 (78 FR 34300). We received no comments or 
requests for a public meeting.
    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. Delay would be impracticable and 
contrary to the public interest. The Coast Guard did not receive the 
necessary information for this event with sufficient time to publish 
both an NPRM and undertake a 30 day delayed effective date. Seeking 
public input, the Coast Guard issued an NPRM to give notice and seek 
public comment. Immediate action is required to ensure the safety zone 
is in place to protect participants, crew, spectators, participating 
vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway during the event.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for this temporary rule is the Ports and Waterways 
Safety Act which authorizes the Coast Guard to establish safety zones 
(33 U.S.C. sections 1221 et seq.).
    The City of Bullhead is sponsoring the Bullhead City Regatta, which 
is held on the navigable waters of the Colorado River in Bullhead City, 
AZ. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety 
of the participants, crew, spectators, sponsor vessels, and other 
vessels and users of the waterway. This event involves participants 
floating down the river on inflatable rafts, inner tubes and floating 
platforms as part of the Bullhead City organized event. The size of 
vessels used will vary in length. Approximately 30,000 people are 
expected to participate in this event. The sponsor will provide for 
more than 35 patrol and rescue boats to help facilitate the event and 
ensure public safety. As the participants conclude each section of the 
river, the associated safety zone will collapse behind the last group 
of boaters to ensure the full use of the waterway to the maximum extent 
without compromising the safety of the participants and safety support 
teams for this large waterway user marine event.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard received no comments on the NPRM. However, several 
concerned citizens have contacted Coast Guard Sector San Diego this 
year and past years inquiring more about the exclusion of the waterway 
for non-paying waterway users, the rights of the public to have free 
access to travel the river, and excessive trash resulting from the 
event. The safety zone is being established this year as in past years 
to help provide a safe area for this widely attended event, and the 
sponsor has indicated other additional safety measures have been taken 
and fees associated with the event are used for trash clean up, 
volunteers and designated safety lifeguard patrols. Overall, concerns 
are best addressed by the event sponsor. Each of these issues has been 
addressed with the sponsor during the planning stages of this event, 
including the collapsing of the exclusionary safety zone behind the 
last event participants as they depart the starting point at Davis Camp 
towards Rotary Park down river, thus allowing for reopening full use of 
the waterways as soon as possible. Because changing the size or 
duration of the safety zone would not support overall event safety 
measures or fully address the concerns submitted, no changes were made 
to the regulatory text.

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. This determination is 
based on the size and location of the safety zone. The safety zone will 
encompass all navigable waters in the vicinity of Davis Camp to Rotary 
Park in Bullhead City, AZ. Vessels may transit through the safety zone 
during the specified times if they request and receive permission from 
the Captain of the Port or his designated representative.

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 received no comments from the Small Business 
Administration on this rule and the impact of a temporary one day 
closure of the portion of the Colorado River for this annual event. The 
Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which 
might be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending 
to transit or anchor in a portion of the waters of the Colorado River 
between Davis Camp to Rotary Park in Bullhead City, Arizona from 6 a.m. 
to 6 p.m. on August 10, 2013.
    This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. 
Although the safety zone would apply to the entire width of the river, 
traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission 
of the Coast Guard patrol commander and the safety zone will collapse 
as the last event participants depart the starting point. Before the 
effective period, the Coast Guard will publish a Local Notice to 
Mariners (LNM).

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 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.
    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

[[Page 44013]]

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 will not call for a 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 rule under that Order and determined 
that this rule 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 
INTFORMATION 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 an expenditure, we 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 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 establishing a temporary 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 supporting this determination and a Categorical 
Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated 
under ADDRESSES.
