COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 33 CFR Part 165 [Docket Number USCG–2013–0763] RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone, Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks Display, Oyster Bay; Oyster Bay, NY Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of Oyster Bay near Oyster Bay, NY for the Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary fireworks display. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect spectators and vessels from the hazards associated with fireworks displays. This rule is intended to restrict all vessels from a portion of Oyster Bay before, during, and immediately after the fireworks event. DATES: This rule is effective from October 19, 2013 to October 20, 2013. This rule will be enforced from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on October 19, 2013 or in the event of inclement weather from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on October 20, 2013.

Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this 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 would be impracticable with the time remaining before the event to publish a NPRM, hold a comment period, and publish a final rule as the event would occur before the rulemaking process was complete. The application for this event was received by the Coast Guard on July 26, 2013. Receipt on this date provided less than 135 days advance notice as is required for new marine events and therefore resulted in late notification to the Coast Guard. Any delay in this regulation’s effective date would be hazardous since immediate action is needed to promote the safety of life and property on navigable waters from the hazards associated with fireworks events. Delaying the effective date by first publishing a NPRM would be contrary to the rule’s objectives of ensuring safety of life on the navigable waters during the scheduled event as immediate action is needed to protect event participants and spectators from the PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 hazardous nature of fireworks displays, including unexpected pyrotechnics detonations and burning debris. 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 for the same reasons discussed above. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this temporary rule is 33 U.S.C. 1226, 1231, 1233; 46 U.S.C. Chapters 454, 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; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1 which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory special local regulations and safety zones. The Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks Display is scheduled for October 19, 2013 and is one of several events associated with the Oyster Bay Oyster Festival. The Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks display is expected to attract large numbers of spectator vessels that will congregate around the event location. A safety zone is needed to protect both spectators and participants from the safety hazards created by it, including unexpected pyrotechnics detonation and burning debris, and to provide for the safety of life on navigable waterways during the Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks display. C. Discussion of the Temporary Final Rule This rule establishes a temporary safety zone for the Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks display, in the vicinity of Oyster Bay, NY. This rule prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the COTP or designated representative. The COTP will cause public notifications to be made by all appropriate means including but not limited to the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast 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 E:\FR\FM\15OCR1.SGM 15OCR1 62294 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 199 / Tuesday, October 15, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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. The Coast Guard determined that this rule is not a significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The regulated area will be of limited duration and cover only a small portion of the navigable waterways. Furthermore, vessels may transit the navigable waterways outside of the regulated area. Vessels requiring entry into the regulated area may be authorized to do so by the COTP or designated representative. Advanced public notifications will also be made to the local maritime community by the Local Notice to Mariners as well as Broadcast Notice to Mariners. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. The temporary safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The regulated area will be of limited size and of short duration, and vessels that can safely do so may navigate in all other portions of the waterways except for the areas designated as a regulated area. Additionally, notifications will be made before the effective period by all appropriate means, including but not limited to the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in advance of the events. VerDate Mar<15>2010 09:52 Oct 11, 2013 Jkt 232001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 E:\FR\FM\15OCR1.SGM 15OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 199 / Tuesday, October 15, 2013 / Rules and Regulations of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves the establishment of a 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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.

Safety Zone, Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks Display, 
Oyster Bay; Oyster Bay, NY

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the 
navigable waters of Oyster Bay near Oyster Bay, NY for the Oyster 
Festival 30th Anniversary fireworks display. This temporary safety zone 
is necessary to protect spectators and vessels from the hazards 
associated with fireworks displays. This rule is intended to restrict 
all vessels from a portion of Oyster Bay before, during, and 
immediately after the fireworks event.

DATES: This rule is effective from October 19, 2013 to October 20, 
2013. This rule will be enforced from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on October 
19, 2013 or in the event of inclement weather from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard is issuing this 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 would be impracticable with the 
time remaining before the event to publish a NPRM, hold a comment 
period, and publish a final rule as the event would occur before the 
rulemaking process was complete. The application for this event was 
received by the Coast Guard on July 26, 2013. Receipt on this date 
provided less than 135 days advance notice as is required for new 
marine events and therefore resulted in late notification to the Coast 
Guard. Any delay in this regulation's effective date would be hazardous 
since immediate action is needed to promote the safety of life and 
property on navigable waters from the hazards associated with fireworks 
events.
    Delaying the effective date by first publishing a NPRM would be 
contrary to the rule's objectives of ensuring safety of life on the 
navigable waters during the scheduled event as immediate action is 
needed to protect event participants and spectators from the hazardous 
nature of fireworks displays, including unexpected pyrotechnics 
detonations and burning debris.
    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 for the same reasons discussed 
above.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for this temporary rule is 33 U.S.C. 1226, 1231, 
1233; 46 U.S.C. Chapters 454, 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; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1 which 
collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory special 
local regulations and safety zones.
    The Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks Display is scheduled 
for October 19, 2013 and is one of several events associated with the 
Oyster Bay Oyster Festival. The Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary 
Fireworks display is expected to attract large numbers of spectator 
vessels that will congregate around the event location. A safety zone 
is needed to protect both spectators and participants from the safety 
hazards created by it, including unexpected pyrotechnics detonation and 
burning debris, and to provide for the safety of life on navigable 
waterways during the Oyster Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks 
display.

C. Discussion of the Temporary Final Rule

    This rule establishes a temporary safety zone for the Oyster 
Festival 30th Anniversary Fireworks display, in the vicinity of Oyster 
Bay, NY.
    This rule prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or 
anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas 
during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the COTP or 
designated representative.
    The COTP will cause public notifications to be made by all 
appropriate means including but not limited to the Local Notice to 
Mariners and Broadcast 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

[[Page 62294]]

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.
    The Coast Guard determined that this rule is not a significant 
regulatory action for the following reasons: The regulated area will be 
of limited duration and cover only a small portion of the navigable 
waterways. Furthermore, vessels may transit the navigable waterways 
outside of the regulated area. Vessels requiring entry into the 
regulated area may be authorized to do so by the COTP or designated 
representative.
    Advanced public notifications will also be made to the local 
maritime community by the Local Notice to Mariners as well as Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners.

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.
    The temporary safety zone will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following 
reasons: The regulated area will be of limited size and of short 
duration, and vessels that can safely do so may navigate in all other 
portions of the waterways except for the areas designated as a 
regulated area. Additionally, notifications will be made before the 
effective period by all appropriate means, including but not limited to 
the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners well in 
advance of the events.

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
