Evergreen Point Floating Bridge (State Route 520) 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 207 feet and a vertical clearance of 57 feet. The opening on the west end of the bridge provides a horizontal clearance of 206 feet and a vertical clearance of 44 feet. Vessels that are able to safely pass through the fixed navigational openings are allowed to do so during this closure period.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: B. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard is adding three new permanent safety zones in the Coast Guard Captain of the Port Boston Zone. When subject to enforcement, these permanent safety zones will restrict vessels from portions of water areas during certain annually recurring marine events. These three new permanent safety zones will ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with these annual recurring events.

On June 14, 2013 the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (78 FR 35798), proposing to amend 33 CFR 165.118 by establishing three new permanent safety zones. No comments were received. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. The legal basis for the temporary rule is 33 U.S.C. 1226, 1231, 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; Pub. L. 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory safety zones. Recently, the Coast Guard Captain of the Port, Sector Boston, determined that public safety requires that a safety zone be enforced around three maritime events that recur annually in Captain of the Port Boston zone. Specifically, the Captain of the Port, Sector Boston, determined that a safety zone is required around the Hull Youth Football Carnival Fireworks, the Boston Harbor Triathlon, and the Boston Harbor Sharkfest Swim. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule For the reasons stated above, the Captain of the Port, Sector Boston, is establishing three new permanent safety zones in 33 CFR 165.118. These new safety zones will be listed in 33 CFR 165.118 as (6.5) Hull Youth Football Carnival Fireworks, (8.8) The Boston E:\FR\FM\08NOR1.SGM 08NOR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 30, 2013, the Coast Guard 
published the Nontank Vessel Response Plans and Other Response Plan 
Requirements final rule, implementing the statutory requirement for an 
owner or operator of a self-propelled, nontank vessel of 400 gross tons 
or greater, which operates on the navigable waters of the United 
States, to prepare and submit an oil spill response plan to the Coast 
Guard (78 FR 60100). Among other things, this rule applied vessel 
response plan requirements to nontank vessels. Under those 
requirements, a nontank vessel owner or operator needs to prepare and 
submit to the Coast Guard a nontank vessel response plan in accordance 
with 33 CFR part 155, subpart J. The content of the response plan 
includes the requirement to plan for responding to a worst-case 
discharge and a substantial threat of such a discharge. Additionally,

(SOPEPs) for certain U.S.-flag nontank and tank vessels requires

a notice in the Federal Register announcing that OMB approved and 
assigned a control number for the requirement.

September 3, 2013, OMB approved the collection of information and 
assigned the collection OMB Control Number 1625-0066 entitled ``Vessel
