SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:42 Sep 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 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 impractical and contrary to public interest to delay the effective date of this rule. The Coast Guard was unable to publish a NPRM and hold a comment period for this rulemaking due to the short time period between event planners notifying the Coast Guard of details concerning the event, on August 9, 2013, and publication of this security zone. As such, it is impracticable to provide a full comment period due to lack of time. Furthermore, delaying the effective date of this security zone would be contrary to the public interest given the high risk of injury and damage during a large public gathering. 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. Due to the need for immediate action, the restriction of vessel traffic is necessary to protect life, property and the environment, therefore, a 30-day notice period is impractical. Delaying the effective date would be contrary to the security zone’s intended objectives of protecting a large gathering of the public, as it would introduce vulnerability to the maritime safety and security of the general public. B. Basis and Purpose The National Football League, of New York, NY, will sponsor the ‘‘NFL Kickoff Event’’, a highly-publicized celebration located at Baltimore, MD, scheduled on September 5, 2013. The activity begins at 7:30 p.m. with venue access granted at 6 p.m. During this event, a large gathering of the public is expected to take place along the promenade in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Activities associated with this event include a nationally-televised live music concert and fireworks display launched from barges, located in navigable waterways within the Captain of the Port’s Area of Responsibility. The Coast Guard has given each Coast Guard Captain of the Port the ability to PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 implement comprehensive port security regimes designed to safeguard human life, vessels, and waterfront facilities while still sustaining the flow of commerce. The Captain of the Port Baltimore is establishing this security zone to protect a large gathering of the general public, mitigate potential terrorist acts, and enhance public and maritime safety and security in order to safeguard life, property, and the environment on or near the navigable waters. C. Discussion of the Final Rule Through this regulation, the Coast Guard will establish a security zone. The security zone will be in effect from 5 p.m. until 11:59 p.m. on September 5, 2013. The security zone will include all navigable waters of Baltimore Harbor, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, from shoreline to shoreline, bounded on the east by a line drawn from position latitude 39° 17′03.41″ N, longitude 076°36′28.35″ W southerly to position latitude 39°16′58.24″ N, longitude 076°36′27.59″ W, located along the waterfront at Baltimore, MD (datum NAD 1983). This location is entirely within the Area of Responsibility of the Captain of the Port Baltimore, as set forth at 33 CFR 3.25– 15. This rule requires any unauthorized persons in the regulated area at the time this security zone is in effect to immediately proceed out of the zone. Except for vessels at berth, mooring, or at anchor, this rule temporarily requires all vessels in the designated security zone as defined by this rule to immediately depart the security zone. Entry into this security zone is prohibited, unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Baltimore. U.S. Coast Guard personnel will be provided to prevent the movement of unauthorized persons into the zone. Federal, state, and local agencies may assist the Coast Guard in the enforcement of this rule. The Coast Guard will issue Notices to Mariners to further publicize the security zone and notify the public of changes in the status of the zone. Such notices will continue until the event is complete. 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 E:\FR\FM\04SER1.SGM 04SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 171 / Wednesday, September 4, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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 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. 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 rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to operate, transit through or anchor within the security zone during the enforcement period. The security zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. The security zone is of limited size and duration. Although the security zone would apply to the entire width of the harbor, traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission of the Captain of the Port. Before the effective period, maritime advisories will be widely available to the maritime community. sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. Although this security zone restricts vessel traffic through the affected area, the effect of this regulation will not be significant due to the limited size and duration of the regulated area. In addition, notifications will be made to the maritime community so mariners may adjust their plans accordingly. This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:42 Sep 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 4. Collection of Information 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 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 (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. PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 54393 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 security 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.

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 publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
with respect to this rule because it is impractical and contrary to 
public interest to delay the effective date of this rule. The Coast 
Guard was unable to publish a NPRM and hold a comment period for this 
rulemaking due to the short time period between event planners 
notifying the Coast Guard of details concerning the event, on August 9, 
2013, and publication of this security zone. As such, it is 
impracticable to provide a full comment period due to lack of time. 
Furthermore, delaying the effective date of this security zone would be 
contrary to the public interest given the high risk of injury and 
damage during a large public gathering.
    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. Due to the need for immediate 
action, the restriction of vessel traffic is necessary to protect life, 
property and the environment, therefore, a 30-day notice period is 
impractical. Delaying the effective date would be contrary to the 
security zone's intended objectives of protecting a large gathering of 
the public, as it would introduce vulnerability to the maritime safety 
and security of the general public.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The National Football League, of New York, NY, will sponsor the 
``NFL Kickoff Event'', a highly-publicized celebration located at 
Baltimore, MD, scheduled on September 5, 2013. The activity begins at 
7:30 p.m. with venue access granted at 6 p.m. During this event, a 
large gathering of the public is expected to take place along the 
promenade in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Activities associated with this 
event include a nationally-televised live music concert and fireworks 
display launched from barges, located in navigable waterways within the 
Captain of the Port's Area of Responsibility.
    The Coast Guard has given each Coast Guard Captain of the Port the 
ability to implement comprehensive port security regimes designed to 
safeguard human life, vessels, and waterfront facilities while still 
sustaining the flow of commerce. The Captain of the Port Baltimore is 
establishing this security zone to protect a large gathering of the 
general public, mitigate potential terrorist acts, and enhance public 
and maritime safety and security in order to safeguard life, property, 
and the environment on or near the navigable waters.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    Through this regulation, the Coast Guard will establish a security 
zone. The security zone will be in effect from 5 p.m. until 11:59 p.m. 
on September 5, 2013. The security zone will include all navigable 
waters of Baltimore Harbor, Baltimore's Inner Harbor, from shoreline to 
shoreline, bounded on the east by a line drawn from position latitude 
39[deg] 17'03.41'' N, longitude 076[deg]36'28.35'' W southerly to 
position latitude 39[deg]16'58.24'' N, longitude 076[deg]36'27.59'' W, 
located along the waterfront at Baltimore, MD (datum NAD 1983). This 
location is entirely within the Area of Responsibility of the Captain 
of the Port Baltimore, as set forth at 33 CFR 3.25-15.
    This rule requires any unauthorized persons in the regulated area 
at the time this security zone is in effect to immediately proceed out 
of the zone. Except for vessels at berth, mooring, or at anchor, this 
rule temporarily requires all vessels in the designated security zone 
as defined by this rule to immediately depart the security zone. Entry 
into this security zone is prohibited, unless specifically authorized 
by the Captain of the Port Baltimore. U.S. Coast Guard personnel will 
be provided to prevent the movement of unauthorized persons into the 
zone. Federal, state, and local agencies may assist the Coast Guard in 
the enforcement of this rule. The Coast Guard will issue Notices to 
Mariners to further publicize the security zone and notify the public 
of changes in the status of the zone. Such notices will continue until 
the event is complete.

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

[[Page 54393]]

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. 
Although this security zone restricts vessel traffic through the 
affected area, the effect of this regulation will not be significant 
due to the limited size and duration of the regulated area. In 
addition, notifications will be made to the maritime community so 
mariners may adjust their plans accordingly.

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 rule 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities. This rule would affect the following entities, some of 
which might be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels 
intending to operate, transit through or anchor within the security 
zone during the enforcement period. The security zone will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
for the following reasons. The security zone is of limited size and 
duration. Although the security zone would apply to the entire width of 
the harbor, traffic would be allowed to pass through the zone with the 
permission of the Captain of the Port. Before the effective period, 
maritime advisories will be widely available to the maritime community.

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 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 
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 (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 security 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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to 
the

discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.
