SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Washington State Department of Transportation has requested that the draw span of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge (State Route 520 across Lake Washington) remain closed to vessel traffic to facilitate safe passage of participants of the Seafair Airshow practice and event. Interstate 90 will be closed to road traffic during this time, which would divert road traffic onto the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge. The closure of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge will further help minimize road traffic congestion resulting from the closure of Interstate 90. The Evergreen Point Floating Bridge provides three navigational openings for vessel passage, the movable floating span, subject to this closure, and two fixed navigational openings; one on the east end of the bridge and one on the west end. The fixed navigational opening on the east end of the bridge provides a horizontal clearance of 150 feet and a vertical clearance of 57 feet at mean high water. The opening on the west end of the bridge provides a horizontal clearance of 170 feet and a vertical clearance of 44 feet at mean high water. Vessels that are able to safely pass through the fixed navigational openings are allowed to do so during this closure period. Under normal conditions, during this time frame, the bridge operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.1049(a) which states the bridge shall open on signal if at least two hours notice is given. This deviation period is from 9:30 a.m. on August 1, 2013 to 3:30 p.m. August 4, 2013. The deviation allows the floating draw span of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge on Lake Washington to remain in the closed position and need not open for maritime traffic from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on August 1, 2013; 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on August 2, 2013; 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on August 3, 2013; and 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on August 4, 2013. The bridge shall operate in accordance to 33 CFR 117.1049(a) at all other times. Waterway usage on the Lake Washington Ship ranges from commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. Mariners will be notified and kept informed of the bridge’s operational status via the Coast Guard Notice to Mariners publication and Broadcast Notice to Mariners as PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 appropriate. The draw span will be required to open, if needed, for vessels engaged in emergency response operations during this closure period. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: July 24, 2013. Daryl R. Peloquin, Acting Bridge Administrator.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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) 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 using the NPRM process. The Coast Guard received notice from Lansing Lions Club on May 1, 2013, stating that they will be conduct a barge based fireworks shoot on the Mississippi River. Completing the NPRM process is impracticable as it would delay the necessary safety zone required to protect participants and event personnel from hazards associated with a barge based fireworks shoot on the Mississippi River. Delaying this rule by completing the NPRM process is also impracticable as it would interfere with and delay the planned event and possibly interfere with contractual obligations. For the same reasons, 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. Delaying this rule by providing 30 days notice would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest because immediate action is needed to protect persons and property from the possible hazards present during such a high volume gathering of vessels on the Mississippi River for this event. B. Basis and Purpose On August 10, 2013, the Lansing Lions Club will conduct a barge based fireworks shoot in the vicinity of mile 662.8 to 663.9 on the Upper Mississippi River. Anticipated traffic on the river presents safety hazards to vessels and participants navigating in the vicinity of mile 662.8 to 663.9. The Captain of the Port determined that a safety zone is necessary to protect persons and VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:07 Jul 30, 2013 Jkt 229001 property from these hazards. The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 33 U.S.C. 1231, 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 establish and define regulatory safety zones. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone for all waters of the Upper Mississippi River, from mile 662.8 to 663.9, extending the entire width of the river. Entry into this zone is prohibited to all vessels and persons except persons and vessels specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Upper Mississippi River or designated representative. This rule is effective on August 10, 2013, from 8:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. for all waters from mile 662.8 to 663.9. The Captain of the Port Upper Mississippi River will inform the public of changes to the enforcement period via broadcast notice to mariners and local 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 a number of these statutes or 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 that Order. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security. This rule will be in effect for a limited time period on one day and notifications to the marine community will be made by local notice to mariners, and subsequent notifications through broadcast notice to mariners. Deviation from the rule may be requested and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Captain of the Port or a designated representative. The impacts on routine navigation are expected to be minimal. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 46259 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 the rulemaking. 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 may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the Upper Mississippi River, mile 662.8 to 663.9 from 8:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. on August 10, 2013. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because this rule will be in effect for a limited time period and notifications to the marine community will be made by local notice to mariners, and subsequent notifications through broadcast notice to mariners. Deviation from the rule may be requested and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Captain of the Port or a designated representative. If you are a small business entity and are significantly affected by this regulation, please contact LT Colin Fogarty, Sector Upper Mississippi River Response Department at telephone 314– 269–2546, email Colin.M.Fogarty@uscg.mil. 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 responsiveness to small businesses. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1– 888–REG–FAIR (1–888–734–3247).

Collection of Information This rule calls 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 State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it 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 INFORMATION 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 or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This rule will 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. 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. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:07 Jul 30, 2013 Jkt 229001 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 guides 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 safety zone, requiring a permit wherein an analysis of the environmental impact of the regulations was performed. This rule is categorically excluded, under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction.

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) 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 using the NPRM process. The Coast Guard received notice 
from Lansing Lions Club on May 1, 2013, stating that they will be 
conduct a barge based fireworks shoot on the Mississippi River. 
Completing the NPRM process is impracticable as it would delay the 
necessary safety zone required to protect participants and event 
personnel from hazards associated with a barge based fireworks shoot on 
the Mississippi River. Delaying this rule by completing the NPRM 
process is also impracticable as it would interfere with and delay the 
planned event and possibly interfere with contractual obligations.
    For the same reasons, 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. Delaying this rule 
by providing 30 days notice would be impracticable and contrary to the 
public interest because immediate action is needed to protect persons 
and property from the possible hazards present during such a high 
volume gathering of vessels on the Mississippi River for this event.

B. Basis and Purpose

    On August 10, 2013, the Lansing Lions Club will conduct a barge 
based fireworks shoot in the vicinity of mile 662.8 to 663.9 on the 
Upper Mississippi River. Anticipated traffic on the river presents 
safety hazards to vessels and participants navigating in the vicinity 
of mile 662.8 to 663.9. The Captain of the Port determined that a 
safety zone is necessary to protect persons and property from these 
hazards. The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 33 
U.S.C. 1231, 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 establish and define 
regulatory safety zones.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone for all waters of the 
Upper Mississippi River, from mile 662.8 to 663.9, extending the entire 
width of the river. Entry into this zone is prohibited to all vessels 
and persons except persons and vessels specifically authorized by the 
Captain of the Port Upper Mississippi River or designated 
representative. This rule is effective on August 10, 2013, from 8:30 
p.m. until 10 p.m. for all waters from mile 662.8 to 663.9. The Captain 
of the Port Upper Mississippi River will inform the public of changes 
to the enforcement period via broadcast notice to mariners and local 
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 a number of these statutes or 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 that Order. It is not ``significant'' 
under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of 
Homeland Security. This rule will be in effect for a limited time 
period on one day and notifications to the marine community will be 
made by local notice to mariners, and subsequent notifications through 
broadcast notice to mariners. Deviation from the rule may be requested 
and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Captain of the 
Port or a designated representative. The impacts on routine navigation 
are expected to be minimal.

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 the rulemaking. 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 may be 
small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit 
the Upper Mississippi River, mile 662.8 to 663.9 from 8:30 p.m. until 
10 p.m. on August 10, 2013. This safety zone will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
because this rule will be in effect for a limited time period and 
notifications to the marine community will be made by local notice to 
mariners, and subsequent notifications through broadcast notice to 
mariners. Deviation from the rule may be requested and will be 
considered on a case-by-case basis by the Captain of the Port or a 
designated representative.
    If you are a small business entity and are significantly affected 
by this regulation, please contact LT Colin Fogarty, Sector Upper 
Mississippi River Response Department at telephone 314-269-2546, email 
Colin.M.Fogarty@uscg.mil.

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 responsiveness to small businesses. If you wish to 
comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR

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 State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it 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 
INFORMATION 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 or more in any 
one year. Though this rule will not result in such expenditure, we do 
discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

8. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will 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.

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 
guides 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 safety zone, requiring a 
permit wherein an analysis of the environmental impact of the 
regulations was performed. This rule is categorically excluded, 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.
