Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 172 / Thursday, September 5, 2013 / Rules and Regulations § 1.1092(d)–1T(d) applies to straddles established on or after January 17, 2001 (the date on which the 2001 NPRM was filed with the Federal Register). No inference is intended with respect to straddles established prior to January 17, 2001. In appropriate cases, the IRS may take the position under section 1092(d)(2) that, even in the absence of a regulation, an obligation under a debt instrument was part of a straddle prior to the effective date of § 1.1092(d)–1T(d) if the debt instrument functioned economically as an interest in actively traded personal property. Special Analyses It has been determined that this Treasury decision is not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563. Therefore, a regulatory assessment is not required. It also has been determined that section 553(b) of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 5) does not apply to these regulations. For the applicability of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 6) refer to the Special Analyses section of the preamble to the crossreference notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Proposed Rules section in this issue of the Federal Register. Pursuant to section 7805(f) of the Code, this regulation has been submitted to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration for comment on its impact on small business. Drafting Information The principal author of these regulations is Mary Brewer, Office of Associate Chief Counsel (Financial Institutions and Products). However, other personnel from the IRS and the Treasury Department participated in their development. * * * * (d) [Reserved]. For further guidance, see § 1.1092(d)–1T(d).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Table of Acronyms BNM Broadcast Notices to Mariners COTP Captain of the Port 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) 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)(3)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a E:\FR\FM\05SER1.SGM 05SER1 54570 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 172 / Thursday, September 5, 2013 / Rules and Regulations notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule. This event is currently in the CFR in Table 1 of 100.801 Eighth Coast Guard District Table of Annual Marine Events, Table No. 37, Sector Ohio Valley No. 37. It is listed as occurring the second weekend in August. The event sponsor has changed the date to occur on September 7, 2013 this year. It will take place on the Cumberland River mile 190.0 to mile 192.0. A special local regulation is necessary during a marine event on the Cumberland River. There is no time to complete the notice and comment process of the APA, and immediate action is necessary to establish this special local regulation to protect participants and event personnel from the possible marine hazards present during the Festival. Delaying the special local regulation would also unnecessarily interfere with the planned event. 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. Providing a full 30 days notice and delaying the effective date for this special local regulation would be impracticable because immediate action is necessary to protect event participants from the possible marine hazards present during the Festival. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES B. Basis and Purpose The Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival takes place on the Cumberland River from mile marker 190.0 to 192.0. The Coast Guard determined that a temporary special local regulation is needed to protect the 1000 participants in the Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival. The legal basis and authorities for this rulemaking establishing a special local regulation are found in 33 U.S.C. 1233, which authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define special local regulations. The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a special local regulation for the waters of the Cumberland River, beginning at mile marker 190.0 and ending at 192.0 to protect the participants in the Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival. Entry into this area is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the COTP Ohio Valley or designated representative. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a special local regulation for the waters of the Cumberland River, beginning at mile marker 190.0 and ending at 192.0, during the Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival. During this event, vessels VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:09 Sep 04, 2013 Jkt 229001 shall not enter into, depart from, or move within the area of this special local regulation without permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or his authorized representative. Persons or vessels requiring entry into or passage through the special local regulation must request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley, or a designated representative. They may be contacted on VHF–FM Channel 13 or 16, or through Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley at 1–800–253–7465. This rule is effective from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. September 7, 2013. The COTP Ohio Valley will inform the public through broadcast notices to mariners of the enforcement period for the special local regulation as well as any changes in the planned schedule. 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. This special local regulation restricts transit on the Cumberland River from mile marker 190.0 through 192.0 and covers a period of ten hours, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. September 7, 2013. Due to its short duration and limited scope, it does not pose a significant regulatory impact. Broadcast Notices to Mariners (BNM) will also inform the community of this special local regulation so that they may plan accordingly for this short restriction on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the restricted area. 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 Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 mile marker 190.0 to 192.0 on the Cumberland River, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on September 7, 2013. The special local regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because this rule will be in effect for a short period of time. BNMs will also inform the community of this special local regulation so that they may plan accordingly for this short restriction on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the restricted area. 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 E:\FR\FM\05SER1.SGM 05SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 172 / Thursday, September 5, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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 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. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES 11.

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 concluded 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 is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction. This rule involves establishing a temporary special local regulation to protect the participants in the Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival on the Cumberland River from mile markers 190.0 to 192.0 for ten hour period on one day. An environmental analysis was performed during the marine event permit process for the rowing event and a checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for this special local regulation.

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)(3)(B), the Coast Guard finds that 
good cause exists for not publishing a

[[Page 54570]]

notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule. This 
event is currently in the CFR in Table 1 of 100.801 Eighth Coast Guard 
District Table of Annual Marine Events, Table No. 37, Sector Ohio 
Valley No. 37. It is listed as occurring the second weekend in August. 
The event sponsor has changed the date to occur on September 7, 2013 
this year. It will take place on the Cumberland River mile 190.0 to 
mile 192.0. A special local regulation is necessary during a marine 
event on the Cumberland River. There is no time to complete the notice 
and comment process of the APA, and immediate action is necessary to 
establish this special local regulation to protect participants and 
event personnel from the possible marine hazards present during the 
Festival. Delaying the special local regulation would also 
unnecessarily interfere with the planned event.
    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. Providing a full 30 
days notice and delaying the effective date for this special local 
regulation would be impracticable because immediate action is necessary 
to protect event participants from the possible marine hazards present 
during the Festival.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival takes place on the 
Cumberland River from mile marker 190.0 to 192.0. The Coast Guard 
determined that a temporary special local regulation is needed to 
protect the 1000 participants in the Cumberland River Dragon Boat 
Festival. The legal basis and authorities for this rulemaking 
establishing a special local regulation are found in 33 U.S.C. 1233, 
which authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define special local 
regulations. The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a special local 
regulation for the waters of the Cumberland River, beginning at mile 
marker 190.0 and ending at 192.0 to protect the participants in the 
Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival. Entry into this area is 
prohibited unless specifically authorized by the COTP Ohio Valley or 
designated representative.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a special local regulation for 
the waters of the Cumberland River, beginning at mile marker 190.0 and 
ending at 192.0, during the Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival. 
During this event, vessels shall not enter into, depart from, or move 
within the area of this special local regulation without permission 
from the COTP Ohio Valley or his authorized representative. Persons or 
vessels requiring entry into or passage through the special local 
regulation must request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley, or a 
designated representative. They may be contacted on VHF-FM Channel 13 
or 16, or through Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley at 1-800-253-7465. 
This rule is effective from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. September 7, 2013. 
The COTP Ohio Valley will inform the public through broadcast notices 
to mariners of the enforcement period for the special local regulation 
as well as any changes in the planned schedule.

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.
    This special local regulation restricts transit on the Cumberland 
River from mile marker 190.0 through 192.0 and covers a period of ten 
hours, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. September 7, 2013. Due to its short 
duration and limited scope, it does not pose a significant regulatory 
impact. Broadcast Notices to Mariners (BNM) will also inform the 
community of this special local regulation so that they may plan 
accordingly for this short restriction on transit. Vessel traffic may 
request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated 
representative to enter the restricted area.

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 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 
mile marker 190.0 to 192.0 on the Cumberland River, from 8:00 a.m. to 
6:00 p.m. on September 7, 2013. The special local regulation will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities because this rule will be in effect for a short period of 
time. BNMs will also inform the community of this special local 
regulation so that they may plan accordingly for this short restriction 
on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio 
Valley or a designated representative to enter the restricted area.

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

[[Page 54571]]

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

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 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 concluded 
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 is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h), of 
the Instruction. This rule involves establishing a temporary special 
local regulation to protect the participants in the Cumberland River 
Dragon Boat Festival on the Cumberland River from mile markers 190.0 to 
192.0 for ten hour period on one day.
    An environmental analysis was performed during the marine event 
permit process for the rowing event and a checklist and a categorical 
exclusion determination are not required for this special local 
regulation.
