BILLING CODE 9110–04–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 165 RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone; 2013 Holiday Boat Parades, Captain of the Port Miami Zone; FL Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is establishing two temporary safety zones during the month of December when holiday boat parades are scheduled to occur on the navigable waterways in the vicinity of Palm Beach and Miami, Florida. The safety zones consist of a series of moving zones around participant vessels as they transit the navigable waters of the United States during these events. The safety zones are necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, participant vessels, and general public on the navigable waters of the United States during the events. Non-participant persons and vessels will be prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the safety zones unless authorized by the Captain of the emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 Dec 12, 2013 Jkt 232001 B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish safety zones and other limited access areas: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 46 U.S.C. 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04– 6, and 160.5; Pub. L. 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. The purpose of the rule is to provide for the safety of life on the navigable waters during the holiday boat parades in the Captain of the Port Miami Zone. 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 Coast Guard was waiting to receive all boat parade event applications to determine if other parades would need a safety zone and did not receive necessary information regarding all the events until October 31, 2013. Special local regulations for these events were previously promulgated at 33 CFR C. Discussion of Final Rule Multiple marine parades are planned for the holiday season throughout the Captain of the Port Miami Zone. The Coast Guard is establishing two safety zones for marine parades during the month of December, 2013 within the navigable waters of the Captain of the Port Miami Zone. The safety zones are listed below. 1. Palm Beach, Florida. On December 7, 2013, Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County is sponsoring the Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade. The marine parade will be held on the waters of the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Beach, Florida. The marine parade will consist of approximately 50 vessels. The marine parade will begin at Lake Worth Daymarker 28 in North Palm Beach and end at the Loxahatchee River Daymarker 7, east of the Glynn Mayo Highway Bridge in Jupiter, Florida. A special local regulation was previously promulgated at 33 CFR 100.701; however, the route and date of the 2013 Table of Acronyms [Docket Number USCG–2013–0939] SUMMARY: 100.701; however, the route and or date of these events does not correspond with the route and or date published in the Code of Federal Regulations. Furthermore, due to the diminishing size of these events, through participants or spectators, the Coast Guard no longer deems these events as needing a marine event permit or special local regulation. The events require a safety zone in order to ensure safety of the marine parade participants and the general public during the parades. The Coast Guard had insufficient time to publish an NPRM and to receive public comments prior to the issuance of this safety zone for these events. Any delay in the effective date of this rule would be contrary to the public interest as immediate action is needed to minimize potential danger to the general public. 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 reasons stated above.

Therefore, the special local regulation set forth in 33 CFR 100.701 is inapplicable for this year’s marine parade. The safety zone consists of a moving zone extending 50 yards ahead of the lead parade vessel, 50 yards astern of the last participant vessel, and 50 yards on either side of the parade. Notice of the safety zone will be provided prior to the marine parade by Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. The safety zone will be enforced from 4:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. on December 7, 2013. 2. Miami, Florida. On December 14, 2013, Miami Outboard Club is sponsoring the Miami Outboard Holiday Boat Parade. The marine parade will be held on the waters of Biscayne Bay, Miami, Florida and the Intracoastal Waterway. The marine parade will consist of approximately 70 vessels. The marine parade will begin at the Miami Outboard Club on Watson Island, head west around Palm Island and Hibiscus Island, head east between Di Lido Island, south through Meloy Channel, west through Government Cut to Bicentennial Park, south to the Dodge Island Bridge, south in the Intracoastal Waterway to Claughton Island, circling back to the north in the Intracoastal Waterway to end at the Miami Outboard Club. A special local regulation was previously promulgated at 33 CFR 100.701, however, the date of the 2013 marine parade does not correspond with the date published in the Code of Federal Regulations. Therefore, the special local regulation set forth in 33 CFR 100.701 is inapplicable for the 2013 marine parade. The safety zone consists of a moving zone extending 50 yards ahead of the lead parade vessel, 50 yards astern of the last participant vessel, and 50 yards on either side of the parade. Notice of the safety zone will be provided prior to the marine parade by Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. The safety zone will be enforced from 6:00 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. on December 14, 2013. Non-participant persons and vessels may request authorization to enter the safety zones by contacting the Captain of the Port Miami by telephone at 305– 535–4472, or a designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the event areas is granted by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative.

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 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 economic impact of this rule is not significant for the following reasons: (1) These safety zones will be enforced for less than 11 hours; (2) although non-participant persons and vessels will not be able to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the safety zones without authorization from the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative, they may operate in the surrounding areas during the enforcement period; (3) nonparticipant persons and vessels may still enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the event areas during the enforcement period if authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative; (4) the safety zones will move with the parade, and (5) the Coast Guard will provide advance notification of the safety zones to the local maritime community by Local Notice to Mariners and 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. This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the safety zones during the respective enforcement period. For the reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review Section above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 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 E:\FR\FM\13DER1.SGM 13DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 240 / Friday, December 13, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 Dec 12, 2013 Jkt 232001 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 the creation of two safety zones. 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.

Since the Philadelphia County 2006 SIP revision relies on the NOX SIP Call to meet the NOX RACT requirements for EGUs and it does not specifically and sufficiently address the source-specific RACT determinations for 46 major sources that were previously approved under the 1hour ozone standard, EPA determined that it cannot proceed with the final approval of this SIP revision, as proposed on August 26, 2008 (73 FR 50270) and on June 19, 2013 (78 FR 36716), withdrew the August 26, 2008 proposed rulemaking action to approve the 2006 SIP revision. II. Summary of SIP Revisions On September 29, 2006, PADEP submitted on behalf of AMS a SIP revision for Philadelphia County to meet the RACT requirements for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. The 2006 SIP revision consists of a RACT demonstration for Philadelphia County for NOX and VOC, and includes: (1) A certification that previously adopted RACT controls in Pennsylvania’s SIP that were approved by EPA for Philadelphia County under the 1-hour ozone NAAQS are based on the currently available technically and economically feasible controls and continue to represent RACT for the 8hour implementation purposes; (2) the adoption of Federally enforceable permits that represent RACT control levels for four major VOC sources; and (3) a negative declaration that certain VOC sources do not exist in Philadelphia County. On June 22, 2010, PADEP submitted another SIP revision addressing Philadelphia County’s RACT requirements under the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. The 2010 SIP revision consists of: (1) The adoption of two regulations to meet control technique guideline (CTG) RACT requirements; and (2) a negative declaration for a particular CTG source category. The 2010 SIP revision supersedes portions of the 2006 SIP revision addressing specific CTG RACT requirements. Finally, on April 26, 2013, PADEP submitted on behalf of AMS a letter committing to submit additional SIP revisions to address source-specific RACT controls under the 1997 8-hour ozone standard for Philadelphia County pursuant to section 110(k)(4) of the CAA. Additional details on the SIP revisions are included in the NPR and will not be restated here. No public comments were received on the NPR for this action. E:\FR\FM\13DER1.SGM 13DER1

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 Coast Guard was waiting to 
receive all boat parade event applications to determine if other 
parades would need a safety zone and did not receive necessary 
information regarding all the events until October 31, 2013. Special 
local regulations for these events were previously promulgated at 33 
CFR 100.701; however, the route and or date of these events does not 
correspond with the route and or date published in the Code of Federal 
Regulations. Furthermore, due to the diminishing size of these events, 
through participants or spectators, the Coast Guard no longer deems 
these events as needing a marine event permit or special local 
regulation. The events require a safety zone in order to ensure safety 
of the marine parade participants and the general public during the 
parades. The Coast Guard had insufficient time to publish an NPRM and 
to receive public comments prior to the issuance of this safety zone 
for these events. Any delay in the effective date of this rule would be 
contrary to the public interest as immediate action is needed to 
minimize potential danger to the general public.
    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 reasons stated above.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard's authority to 
establish safety zones and other limited access areas: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 
46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 46 U.S.C. 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 
1.05-1, 6.04-1, 6.04-6, and 160.5; Pub. L. 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; 
Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.
    The purpose of the rule is to provide for the safety of life on the 
navigable waters during the holiday boat parades in the Captain of the 
Port Miami Zone.

C. Discussion of Final Rule

    Multiple marine parades are planned for the holiday season 
throughout the Captain of the Port Miami Zone. The Coast Guard is 
establishing two safety zones for marine parades during the month of 
December, 2013 within the navigable waters of the Captain of the Port 
Miami Zone. The safety zones are listed below.
    1. Palm Beach, Florida. On December 7, 2013, Marine Industries 
Association of Palm Beach County is sponsoring the Palm Beach Holiday 
Boat Parade. The marine parade will be held on the waters of the 
Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Beach, Florida. The marine parade will 
consist of approximately 50 vessels. The marine parade will begin at 
Lake Worth Daymarker 28 in North Palm Beach and end at the Loxahatchee 
River Daymarker 7, east of the Glynn Mayo Highway Bridge in Jupiter, 
Florida. A special local regulation was previously promulgated at 33 
CFR 100.701; however, the route and date of the 2013

[[Page 75900]]

marine parade does not correspond with the route and date published in 
the Code of Federal Regulations. Therefore, the special local 
regulation set forth in 33 CFR 100.701 is inapplicable for this year's 
marine parade. The safety zone consists of a moving zone extending 50 
yards ahead of the lead parade vessel, 50 yards astern of the last 
participant vessel, and 50 yards on either side of the parade. Notice 
of the safety zone will be provided prior to the marine parade by Local 
Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. The safety zone 
will be enforced from 4:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. on December 7, 2013.
    2. Miami, Florida. On December 14, 2013, Miami Outboard Club is 
sponsoring the Miami Outboard Holiday Boat Parade. The marine parade 
will be held on the waters of Biscayne Bay, Miami, Florida and the 
Intracoastal Waterway. The marine parade will consist of approximately 
70 vessels. The marine parade will begin at the Miami Outboard Club on 
Watson Island, head west around Palm Island and Hibiscus Island, head 
east between Di Lido Island, south through Meloy Channel, west through 
Government Cut to Bicentennial Park, south to the Dodge Island Bridge, 
south in the Intracoastal Waterway to Claughton Island, circling back 
to the north in the Intracoastal Waterway to end at the Miami Outboard 
Club. A special local regulation was previously promulgated at 33 CFR 
100.701, however, the date of the 2013 marine parade does not 
correspond with the date published in the Code of Federal Regulations. 
Therefore, the special local regulation set forth in 33 CFR 100.701 is 
inapplicable for the 2013 marine parade. The safety zone consists of a 
moving zone extending 50 yards ahead of the lead parade vessel, 50 
yards astern of the last participant vessel, and 50 yards on either 
side of the parade. Notice of the safety zone will be provided prior to 
the marine parade by Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners. The safety zone will be enforced from 6:00 p.m. until 11:30 
p.m. on December 14, 2013.
    Non-participant persons and vessels may request authorization to 
enter the safety zones by contacting the Captain of the Port Miami by 
telephone at 305-535-4472, or a designated representative via VHF radio 
on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, 
or remain within the event areas is granted by the Captain of the Port 
Miami or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving 
such authorization must comply with the instructions of the Captain of 
the Port Miami or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will 
provide notice of the safety zones by Local Notice to Mariners, 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and on-scene designated representatives.

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 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 economic impact of 
this rule is not significant for the following reasons: (1) These 
safety zones will be enforced for less than 11 hours; (2) although non-
participant persons and vessels will not be able to enter, transit 
through, anchor in, or remain within the safety zones without 
authorization from the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated 
representative, they may operate in the surrounding areas during the 
enforcement period; (3) non-participant persons and vessels may still 
enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the event areas 
during the enforcement period if authorized by the Captain of the Port 
Miami or a designated representative; (4) the safety zones will move 
with the parade, and (5) the Coast Guard will provide advance 
notification of the safety zones to the local maritime community by 
Local Notice to Mariners and 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. This rule may affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to 
enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the safety zones 
during the respective enforcement period. For the reasons discussed in 
the Regulatory Planning and Review Section above, this rule will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.

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

[[Page 75901]]

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 the creation of two safety zones. 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.
