Regulatory History and Information Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the navigable waters of the San Francisco Bay off of Spinnaker Point near Sausalito, CA in support of the Sausalito Lighted Boat Parade Fireworks Display on December 14, 2013. This safety zone is established to help protect participants and spectators from the dangers associated with pyrotechnics. maindgalligan on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:56 Dec 09, 2013 Jkt 232001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because the event would occur before the rulemaking process would be completed. Because of the dangers posed by the pyrotechnics used in fireworks displays, the safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of event participants, spectators, spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event area. For the safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to have these regulations in effect during the event. 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. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the proposed rule is 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, 160.5; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to establish safety zones. Sausalito On-the-Waterfront Foundation will sponsor the Sausalito Lighted Boat Parade Fireworks Display on December 14, 2013 off of Spinnaker Point near Sausalito, CA in approximate position 37°51′31″ N, 122°28′28″ W (NAD83) as depicted in National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Chart 18653. This safety zone establishes a temporary restricted area on the waters 100 feet surrounding the fireworks barge during the loading, transit and arrival of the pyrotechnics from the loading site to the launch site until the commencement of the fireworks display. Upon the commencement of the 10 minute fireworks display, the safety zone will increase in size and encompass the navigable waters around the fireworks barge within a radius of 420 feet. The fireworks display is meant for entertainment purposes. The restricted area around the fireworks barge is necessary to protect spectators, vessels, and other property from the hazards associated with pyrotechnics. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The Coast Guard will enforce a safety zone in navigable waters around and under a fireworks barge within a radius E:\FR\FM\10DER1.SGM 10DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 237 / Tuesday, December 10, 2013 / Rules and Regulations rule restricts access to the waters encompassed by the safety zone, the effect of this rule is expected to be minimal because the local waterway users will be notified via public Broadcast Notice to Mariners prior to the activation of the safety zone. The entities most likely to be affected are waterfront facilities, commercial vessels, and pleasure craft engaged in recreational activities. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes and executive orders. maindgalligan on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES of 100 feet during the loading, transit, and arrival of the fireworks barge to the display location until the start of the fireworks display. From 11 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on December 14, 2013, the fireworks barge will be loaded at Pier 50 in San Francisco, CA. From 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on December 14, 2013 the loaded fireworks barge will transit from Pier 50 to the launch site off of Spinnaker Point near Sausalito, CA in approximate position 37°51′31″ N, 122°28′28″ W (NAD 83) where it will remain until the commencement of the fireworks display. Upon the commencement of the 10 minute fireworks display, scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m. on December 14, 2013, the safety zone will increase in size and encompass the navigable waters around and under the fireworks barge within a radius 420 feet in approximate position 37°51′31″ N, 122°28′28″ W (NAD 83) for the Sausalito Lighted Boat Parade Fireworks Display. At the conclusion of the fireworks display the safety zone shall terminate. The effect of the temporary safety zone will be to restrict navigation in the vicinity of the fireworks barge while the fireworks are set up, and until the conclusion of the scheduled display. Except for persons or vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the restricted area. These regulations are needed to keep spectators and vessels away from the immediate vicinity of the fireworks barge to help protect the participants, spectators, and transiting vessels. 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 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. We expect the economic impact of this rule will not rise to the level of necessitating a full Regulatory Evaluation. The safety zone is limited in duration, and is limited to a narrowly tailored geographic area. Although this VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:56 Dec 09, 2013 Jkt 232001 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 may affect owners and operators of waterfront facilities, commercial vessels, and pleasure craft engaged in recreational activities and sightseeing. This safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This safety zone would be activated, and thus subject to enforcement, for a limited duration. When the safety zone is activated, vessel traffic can navigate around the safety zone. The maritime public will be advised in advance of this safety zone via Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 3. Assistance for Small Entities PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 74011 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 E:\FR\FM\10DER1.SGM 10DER1 74012 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 237 / Tuesday, December 10, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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 a safety zone of limited size and duration. 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. maindgalligan on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, and Waterways.

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 the event would occur before the 
rulemaking process would be completed. Because of the dangers posed by 
the pyrotechnics used in fireworks displays, the safety zone is 
necessary to provide for the safety of event participants, spectators, 
spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event area. For the 
safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to have these 
regulations in effect during the event. 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.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for the proposed rule is 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, 160.5; Public Law 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; Department of 
Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize 
the Coast Guard to establish safety zones.
    Sausalito On-the-Waterfront Foundation will sponsor the Sausalito 
Lighted Boat Parade Fireworks Display on December 14, 2013 off of 
Spinnaker Point near Sausalito, CA in approximate position 
37[deg]51'31'' N, 122[deg]28'28'' W (NAD83) as depicted in National 
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Chart 18653. This safety 
zone establishes a temporary restricted area on the waters 100 feet 
surrounding the fireworks barge during the loading, transit and arrival 
of the pyrotechnics from the loading site to the launch site until the 
commencement of the fireworks display. Upon the commencement of the 10 
minute fireworks display, the safety zone will increase in size and 
encompass the navigable waters around the fireworks barge within a 
radius of 420 feet. The fireworks display is meant for entertainment 
purposes. The restricted area around the fireworks barge is necessary 
to protect spectators, vessels, and other property from the hazards 
associated with pyrotechnics.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard will enforce a safety zone in navigable waters 
around and under a fireworks barge within a radius

[[Page 74011]]

of 100 feet during the loading, transit, and arrival of the fireworks 
barge to the display location until the start of the fireworks display. 
From 11 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on December 14, 2013, the fireworks barge 
will be loaded at Pier 50 in San Francisco, CA. From 5:30 p.m. to 7 
p.m. on December 14, 2013 the loaded fireworks barge will transit from 
Pier 50 to the launch site off of Spinnaker Point near Sausalito, CA in 
approximate position 37[deg]51'31'' N, 122[deg]28'28'' W (NAD 83) where 
it will remain until the commencement of the fireworks display. Upon 
the commencement of the 10 minute fireworks display, scheduled to begin 
at 7:45 p.m. on December 14, 2013, the safety zone will increase in 
size and encompass the navigable waters around and under the fireworks 
barge within a radius 420 feet in approximate position 37[deg]51'31'' 
N, 122[deg]28'28'' W (NAD 83) for the Sausalito Lighted Boat Parade 
Fireworks Display. At the conclusion of the fireworks display the 
safety zone shall terminate.
    The effect of the temporary safety zone will be to restrict 
navigation in the vicinity of the fireworks barge while the fireworks 
are set up, and until the conclusion of the scheduled display. Except 
for persons or vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, 
no person or vessel may enter or remain in the restricted area. These 
regulations are needed to keep spectators and vessels away from the 
immediate vicinity of the fireworks barge to help protect the 
participants, spectators, and transiting vessels.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on 13 of 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.
    We expect the economic impact of this rule will not rise to the 
level of necessitating a full Regulatory Evaluation. The safety zone is 
limited in duration, and is limited to a narrowly tailored geographic 
area. Although this rule restricts access to the waters encompassed by 
the safety zone, the effect of this rule is expected to be minimal 
because the local waterway users will be notified via public Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners prior to the activation of the safety zone. The 
entities most likely to be affected are waterfront facilities, 
commercial vessels, and pleasure craft engaged in recreational 
activities.

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 may affect owners and operators of waterfront facilities, 
commercial vessels, and pleasure craft engaged in recreational 
activities and sightseeing. This safety zone would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
for the following reasons. This safety zone would be activated, and 
thus subject to enforcement, for a limited duration. When the safety 
zone is activated, vessel traffic can navigate around the safety zone. 
The maritime public will be advised in advance of this safety zone via 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

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

[[Page 74012]]

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 a safety zone of limited size and 
duration. 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.
