DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard Special Local Regulations; Eleventh Coast Guard District Annual Marine Events Coast Guard, DHS. Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is updating the list of marine events that occur annually within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. These updates include adding specific marine events to the list of marine events held annually in the Eleventh Coast Guard District as well as removing marine events that no longer occur. In addition to updating the list of marine events held annually in the Eleventh Coast Guard District, the Coast Guard is amending the special local regulations by standardizing the language and format of listed events. When these special local regulations are activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this rule will restrict vessels from transiting inside the regulated area. DATES: This rule is effective March 6, 2014. ADDRESSES: Documents mentioned in this preamble are part of docket USCG– 2013–0361.

Regulatory History and Information On November 18th, 2013, we published a NPRM entitled Special Local Regulations: Eleventh Coast Guard District Annual Marine Events, in the Federal Register (78 FR 69007). We received no comments on the NPRM, or a request for public meeting. A public meeting was not held. B. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard is conducting this rulemaking under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 1233. Specific marine events are annually held on a recurring basis on the navigable waters within the Eleventh Coast Guard District and require special local regulations to keep spectators and vessels a safe distance away from the vessels and individuals that are participating in the specified events. These events include sailing regattas, powerboat races, rowboat races, parades, and swim events. Some of these marine events are not currently listed in 33 CFR part 100, sections 1101, 1102 and 1104 or many of the annual events that are listed in these sections do not correctly reflect the date or approximate date of the event or do not correctly identify other important information specific to the event. The effect of these special local regulations will be to restrict general navigation in the vicinity of the events, from the start of each event until the conclusion of that event. Except for persons or vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, no PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 person or vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. These regulations are needed to keep spectators and vessels a safe distance away from the specified events to help ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and transiting vessels. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule We received no comments or request for a public meeting after publishing the NPRM for this rule. Therefore, no changes have been made to the regulatory text of this rule. The Coast Guard is amending 33 CFR 100.1101, Southern California annual marine events for the San Diego Captain of the Port zone, by adding 12 new events and updating 1 event with correct verbiage. The 12 new events in this section are as follows: ‘‘ITU World Triathlon’’ occurring late April or early May at Bonita Cove and Ventura Cove in Mission Bay, San Diego; ‘‘Fearless Triathlon’’ occurring in March at the South Shores Boat Ramp in Mission Bay, San Diego; ‘‘Bay to Bay Rowing and Paddling Regatta’’ occurring in July from Mission Bay to San Diego Bay; ‘‘San Diego Sharkfest Swim’’ occurring one Saturday in September or October in the waters from Seaport Village across the federal channel to the Coronado Ferry Landing; ‘‘San Diego TriRock Triathlon’’ occurring on a Saturday in March in the East Embarcadero Marina Basin; ‘‘San Diego Bayfair’’ occurring the second or third weekend in September at Mission Bay, San Diego; ‘‘Oceanside Harbor Days Tiki Swim’’ occurring on one Saturday in late September or early October in Oceanside Harbor, Oceanside; ‘‘U.S. Open Ski Racing Nationals’’ occurring one weekend in October at Mission Bay, San Diego; ‘‘San Diego Maritime Museum Tall Ship Festival of Sail’’ occurring one weekend in September in San Diego Bay; ‘‘Hanohano Ocean Challenge’’ an outrigger canoe race occurring on a Saturday in January in Mission Bay, San Diego; ‘‘Crystal Pier Outrigger Race’’ an outrigger canoe race occurring in Mission Bay and Mission Bay Entrance Channel on a Saturday in May, Mission Bay, San Diego; and the ‘‘San Diego Ho’olaule’a & Keiki Heihei Wa’a Stand Up for the Kids Race’’ occurring on a weekend in May in Mission Bay, San Diego. We are also updating the information specific to the E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM 04FER1 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES 6458 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 23 / Tuesday, February 4, 2014 / Rules and Regulations ‘‘San Diego Parade of Lights’’ by inserting a new event sponsor, date, and regulated area. The Coast Guard is amending 33 CFR 100.1102, annual marine events on the Colorado River, between Davis Dam (Bullhead City, AZ) and Headgate Dam (Parker, AZ) within the San Diego Captain of the Port zone, by adding 9 new events and updating 1 event with correct verbiage. The 9 new events in this section are as follows: ’’BlueWater Resort and Casino Southwest Showdown’’ occurring one weekend in March in the waters of the Colorado River between BlueWater Resort and Casino and just north of Headgate Rock Dam in Parker, AZ; ‘‘BlueWater Resort and Casino West Coast Nationals’’ occurring one weekend in April in the Lake Moovalya area of the Colorado River and the portion of the Colorado River adjacent to the BlueWater River Casino, in Parker, AZ; ‘‘Great Western Tube Float’’ occurring one Saturday in early June in the navigable waters of the Colorado River from La Paz County Park to the BlueWater Resort and Casino, immediately before the Headgate Dam; ‘‘Mark Hahn Memorial 300 PWC Endurance Race’’ occurring in late February at Lake Havasu; ‘‘Lake Havasu Triathlon’’ occurring in March at Lake Havasu; ‘‘Bullhead City River Regatta’’ occurring one Saturday in August in the Colorado River from Camp Davis to Rotary Park; ‘‘BlueWater Triathlon’’ occurring one Saturday in October in the waters of the Colorado River between Blue Water Resort and Casino Amphitheater and just north of Headgate Rock Dam in Parker, AZ; ‘‘BlueWater Resort and Casino 300 Enduro’’ occurring in late October at river mile markers 179 and 185 in the Colorado River; and ‘‘Another Dam Race’’ occurring one Saturday in November in the waters of the Colorado River between Blue Water Resort and Casino Amphitheater and just north of Headgate Rock Dam in Parker, AZ. We are also updating the information specific to the ‘‘Lake Havasu City Boat Parade of Lights’’ by inserting a new regulated area. Lastly, the Coast Guard is reinstating 16 annually recurring marine events previously listed in 33 CFR 100.1104, Captain of the Port zone Los AngelesLong Beach. The 16 marine events being reinstated were mistakenly deleted in 2011 and are not new events. By reinstating these 16 marine events, Table 1 of this section will accurately reflect the 17 annually recurring events that are held in the Captain of the Port zone Los Angeles-Long Beach. These changes effectively update special local regulations with annually VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:57 Feb 03, 2014 Jkt 232001 occurring marine events in the Eleventh Coast Guard District. Table 1 for each of the listed sections will reflect current information. This rulemaking limits the unnecessary burden of continually establishing temporary special local regulations every year for events that occur on an annual basis. These events include swimming competitions, sailboat and power boat races and rowing events within the San Diego and Los Angeles-Long Beach Captain of the Port zones. Regulated areas listed in these events are needed to protect both the event participants, spectators, and other mariners and provide on-water awareness for safety. To reduce associated safety risks, special local regulations restrict vessels and water craft around the location of each marine event. Within the regulated areas of the listed marine events, persons and vessels not associated with the event are prohibited from entering, transiting through, remaining, anchoring or mooring within the regulated area unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) or designated representative. Persons or vessels will be able to request authorization to enter, transit through, remain, anchor or moor within the regulated areas by contacting the Captain of the Port for the respective location, COTP San Diego 619–278– 7033 and COTP Los Angeles-Long Beach 310–521–3801 or designated representative on VHF radio channel 16. If any person is authorized to enter, transit through, remain, anchor or moor within any of the regulated areas, the individual is required to comply with the instructions of the COTP or designated representative. Designated representatives are comprised of commissioned, warrant, and petty officers of the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard may also be assisted by other federal, state, and local agencies in the enforcement of these regulated areas. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation is unnecessary. This rule is not a significant regulatory action because the regulations exist for a limited period of time on a limited portion of the waterways. Further, individuals and vessels desiring to use the affected portion of the waterways may, upon permission from the Patrol Commander, use the affected areas. 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 received no comments from the Small Business Administration on this rule. 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. We expect this rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to fish, transit, or anchor in the waters affected by these special local regulations. These special local regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: small vessel traffic will be able to pass safely around the area and vessels engaged in event activities, sightseeing and commercial fishing have ample space outside of the area governed by the special local regulations to engage in these activities. Small entities and the maritime public will be advised of implementation of these special local regulations via public notice to mariners or notice of implementation published in the Federal Register. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 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 E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM 04FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 23 / Tuesday, February 4, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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 have 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. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:57 Feb 03, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 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 would 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 rule 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 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 updating the list of marine events that occur annually within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. These updates include adding specific marine events to PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 6459 the list of marine events held annually in the Eleventh Coast Guard District as well as removing marine events that no longer occur. In addition to updating the list of marine events held annually in the Eleventh Coast Guard District, the Coast Guard is amending the special local regulations in 33 CFR 100, sections 1101, 1102 and 1104 by standardizing the language and format of listed events. When these special local regulations are activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this rule will restrict vessels from transiting inside the regulated area. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is 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. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 100 Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements, Waterways. For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 33 CFR Part 100 as follows: PART 100—MARINE EVENTS 1.

Sponsors are informed that ample lead time is required to inform all Federal, state, local agencies, and/or other interested parties and to provide the sponsor the best support to ensure the safety of life and property. (b) Special local regulations. All persons and vessels not registered with the sponsor as participants or as official patrol vessels are considered spectators. The ‘‘official patrol’’ consists of any Coast Guard or other vessel assigned or approved by the cognizant Coast Guard Sector Commander to patrol each event. (1) No spectator shall anchor, block, loiter, nor impede the through transit of participants or official patrol vessels in the regulated areas during all applicable effective dates and times unless cleared to do so by or through an official patrol vessel. (2) When hailed and/or signaled by an official patrol vessel, any spectator located within a regulated area during all applicable effective dates and times shall come to an immediate stop. (3) The Patrol Commander (PATCOM) is empowered to control the movement of all vessels in the regulated area or to restrict vessels from entering the regulated area.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is establishing a permanent safety zone on the navigable waters of Port Valdez within a 200-yard radius of the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) Port Valdez Ferry Terminal. The purpose of the safety zone is to restrict all vessels except AMHS vessels from entering within 200-yards of the AMHS Port Valdez Ferry Terminal whenever an AMHS ferry is underway within 200 yards of the terminal and there is a declared Commercial Salmon Fishery Opener. This safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of life, property and the environment during periods of vessel traffic congestion during a declared Commercial Salmon Fishery Opener. DATES: This rule is effective March 6, 2014. ADDRESSES: Documents mentioned in this preamble are part of docket [USCG– 2012–0365].

Given that, the Coast Guard proposed to establish a permanent safety zone to restrict non-AMHS vessels from entering within a 200-yard radius of the AMHS Port Valdez Ferry Terminal whenever an AMHS ferry is underway within a 200-yard radius of the AMHS Terminal and there is a declared Commercial Salmon Fishery Opener that includes the navigable waters within 200 yards of the terminal. A. Regulatory History and Information On February 1, 2013, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (78 FR 7336). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested and none was held. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish limited access areas: 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. A representative of the Alaska Marine Highway System requested that the Coast Guard establish a safety zone in the immediate vicinity of the AMHS Port Valdez Ferry Terminal whenever a Commercial Salmon Fishery Opener is declared, because of previous incidents of near collisions in the vicinity of the ferry terminal between AMHS ferry vessels and commercial fishing vessels. During Commercial Salmon Fishery Openers, increased vessel traffic in the vicinity of the AMHS Port Valdez Ferry Terminal adds additional congestion to the waterways and is a cause for navigational safety concerns, especially when the commercial fleet is active along the shoreline adjacent to the AMHS Port Valdez Ferry Terminal. The Coast Guard began issuing temporary final rules to establish temporary safety zones during Commercial Salmon Fishery Openers in 2010. Because Commercial Salmon 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. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 No comments were received. No changes were made to the regulatory text as published in the NPRM. D. Regulatory Analyses 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 enforcement of this safety zone will be of short duration. The safety zone will be enforced for a limited amount of time, only when there is a declared Commercial Salmon Fishery Opener and there is an AMHS ferry underway within 200 yards of the AMHS Port Valdez Ferry Terminal. Vessels will be able to navigate around the safety zone. Furthermore, vessels may be authorized to transit through the safety zone with the permission of the COTP. E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM 04FER1

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    On November 18th, 2013, we published a NPRM entitled Special Local 
Regulations: Eleventh Coast Guard District Annual Marine Events, in the 
Federal Register (78 FR 69007). We received no comments on the NPRM, or 
a request for public meeting. A public meeting was not held.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The Coast Guard is conducting this rulemaking under the authority 
of 33 U.S.C. 1233.
    Specific marine events are annually held on a recurring basis on 
the navigable waters within the Eleventh Coast Guard District and 
require special local regulations to keep spectators and vessels a safe 
distance away from the vessels and individuals that are participating 
in the specified events. These events include sailing regattas, 
powerboat races, rowboat races, parades, and swim events. Some of these 
marine events are not currently listed in 33 CFR part 100, sections 
1101, 1102 and 1104 or many of the annual events that are listed in 
these sections do not correctly reflect the date or approximate date of 
the event or do not correctly identify other important information 
specific to the event.
    The effect of these special local regulations will be to restrict 
general navigation in the vicinity of the events, from the start of 
each event until the conclusion of that event. Except for persons or 
vessels authorized by the Coast Guard Patrol Commander, no person or 
vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. These regulations are 
needed to keep spectators and vessels a safe distance away from the 
specified events to help ensure the safety of participants, spectators, 
and transiting vessels.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    We received no comments or request for a public meeting after 
publishing the NPRM for this rule. Therefore, no changes have been made 
to the regulatory text of this rule.
    The Coast Guard is amending 33 CFR 100.1101, Southern California 
annual marine events for the San Diego Captain of the Port zone, by 
adding 12 new events and updating 1 event with correct verbiage. The 12 
new events in this section are as follows: ``ITU World Triathlon'' 
occurring late April or early May at Bonita Cove and Ventura Cove in 
Mission Bay, San Diego; ``Fearless Triathlon'' occurring in March at 
the South Shores Boat Ramp in Mission Bay, San Diego; ``Bay to Bay 
Rowing and Paddling Regatta'' occurring in July from Mission Bay to San 
Diego Bay; ``San Diego Sharkfest Swim'' occurring one Saturday in 
September or October in the waters from Seaport Village across the 
federal channel to the Coronado Ferry Landing; ``San Diego TriRock 
Triathlon'' occurring on a Saturday in March in the East Embarcadero 
Marina Basin; ``San Diego Bayfair'' occurring the second or third 
weekend in September at Mission Bay, San Diego; ``Oceanside Harbor Days 
Tiki Swim'' occurring on one Saturday in late September or early 
October in Oceanside Harbor, Oceanside; ``U.S. Open Ski Racing 
Nationals'' occurring one weekend in October at Mission Bay, San Diego; 
``San Diego Maritime Museum Tall Ship Festival of Sail'' occurring one 
weekend in September in San Diego Bay; ``Hanohano Ocean Challenge'' an 
outrigger canoe race occurring on a Saturday in January in Mission Bay, 
San Diego; ``Crystal Pier Outrigger Race'' an outrigger canoe race 
occurring in Mission Bay and Mission Bay Entrance Channel on a Saturday 
in May, Mission Bay, San Diego; and the ``San Diego Ho'olaule'a & Keiki 
Heihei Wa'a Stand Up for the Kids Race'' occurring on a weekend in May 
in Mission Bay, San Diego. We are also updating the information 
specific to the

[[Page 6458]]

``San Diego Parade of Lights'' by inserting a new event sponsor, date, 
and regulated area.
    The Coast Guard is amending 33 CFR 100.1102, annual marine events 
on the Colorado River, between Davis Dam (Bullhead City, AZ) and 
Headgate Dam (Parker, AZ) within the San Diego Captain of the Port 
zone, by adding 9 new events and updating 1 event with correct 
verbiage. The 9 new events in this section are as follows: ''BlueWater 
Resort and Casino Southwest Showdown'' occurring one weekend in March 
in the waters of the Colorado River between BlueWater Resort and Casino 
and just north of Headgate Rock Dam in Parker, AZ; ``BlueWater Resort 
and Casino West Coast Nationals'' occurring one weekend in April in the 
Lake Moovalya area of the Colorado River and the portion of the 
Colorado River adjacent to the BlueWater River Casino, in Parker, AZ; 
``Great Western Tube Float'' occurring one Saturday in early June in 
the navigable waters of the Colorado River from La Paz County Park to 
the BlueWater Resort and Casino, immediately before the Headgate Dam; 
``Mark Hahn Memorial 300 PWC Endurance Race'' occurring in late 
February at Lake Havasu; ``Lake Havasu Triathlon'' occurring in March 
at Lake Havasu; ``Bullhead City River Regatta'' occurring one Saturday 
in August in the Colorado River from Camp Davis to Rotary Park; 
``BlueWater Triathlon'' occurring one Saturday in October in the waters 
of the Colorado River between Blue Water Resort and Casino Amphitheater 
and just north of Headgate Rock Dam in Parker, AZ; ``BlueWater Resort 
and Casino 300 Enduro'' occurring in late October at river mile markers 
179 and 185 in the Colorado River; and ``Another Dam Race'' occurring 
one Saturday in November in the waters of the Colorado River between 
Blue Water Resort and Casino Amphitheater and just north of Headgate 
Rock Dam in Parker, AZ. We are also updating the information specific 
to the ``Lake Havasu City Boat Parade of Lights'' by inserting a new 
regulated area.
    Lastly, the Coast Guard is reinstating 16 annually recurring marine 
events previously listed in 33 CFR 100.1104, Captain of the Port zone 
Los Angeles-Long Beach. The 16 marine events being reinstated were 
mistakenly deleted in 2011 and are not new events. By reinstating these 
16 marine events, Table 1 of this section will accurately reflect the 
17 annually recurring events that are held in the Captain of the Port 
zone Los Angeles-Long Beach.
    These changes effectively update special local regulations with 
annually occurring marine events in the Eleventh Coast Guard District. 
Table 1 for each of the listed sections will reflect current 
information. This rulemaking limits the unnecessary burden of 
continually establishing temporary special local regulations every year 
for events that occur on an annual basis. These events include swimming 
competitions, sailboat and power boat races and rowing events within 
the San Diego and Los Angeles-Long Beach Captain of the Port zones.
    Regulated areas listed in these events are needed to protect both 
the event participants, spectators, and other mariners and provide on-
water awareness for safety. To reduce associated safety risks, special 
local regulations restrict vessels and water craft around the location 
of each marine event. Within the regulated areas of the listed marine 
events, persons and vessels not associated with the event are 
prohibited from entering, transiting through, remaining, anchoring or 
mooring within the regulated area unless specifically authorized by the 
Captain of the Port (COTP) or designated representative. Persons or 
vessels will be able to request authorization to enter, transit 
through, remain, anchor or moor within the regulated areas by 
contacting the Captain of the Port for the respective location, COTP 
San Diego 619-278-7033 and COTP Los Angeles-Long Beach 310-521-3801 or 
designated representative on VHF radio channel 16. If any person is 
authorized to enter, transit through, remain, anchor or moor within any 
of the regulated areas, the individual is required to comply with the 
instructions of the COTP or designated representative.
    Designated representatives are comprised of commissioned, warrant, 
and petty officers of the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard may also be 
assisted by other federal, state, and local agencies in the enforcement 
of these regulated areas.

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. We expect the economic 
impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full Regulatory Evaluation 
is unnecessary. This rule is not a significant regulatory action 
because the regulations exist for a limited period of time on a limited 
portion of the waterways. Further, individuals and vessels desiring to 
use the affected portion of the waterways may, upon permission from the 
Patrol Commander, use the affected areas.

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 received no comments from the Small Business 
Administration on this rule. 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.
    We expect this rule will affect the following entities, some of 
which may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels 
intending to fish, transit, or anchor in the waters affected by these 
special local regulations. These special local regulations will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities for the following reasons: small vessel traffic will be able 
to pass safely around the area and vessels engaged in event activities, 
sightseeing and commercial fishing have ample space outside of the area 
governed by the special local regulations to engage in these 
activities. Small entities and the maritime public will be advised of 
implementation of these special local regulations via public notice to 
mariners or notice of implementation published in the Federal Register.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 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

[[Page 6459]]

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 have 
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 would not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
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 would 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 rule 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 
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 updating the list of marine events that 
occur annually within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. These updates 
include adding specific marine events to the list of marine events held 
annually in the Eleventh Coast Guard District as well as removing 
marine events that no longer occur. In addition to updating the list of 
marine events held annually in the Eleventh Coast Guard District, the 
Coast Guard is amending the special local regulations in 33 CFR 100, 
sections 1101, 1102 and 1104 by standardizing the language and format 
of listed events. When these special local regulations are activated, 
and thus subject to enforcement, this rule will restrict vessels from 
transiting inside the regulated area. This rule is categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the 
Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist 
supporting this determination is 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.

Sec.  100.1101  Southern California Annual Marine Events for the San 
Diego Captain of the Port Zone.

    (a) General. Special local regulations are established for the 
events listed in Table 1 of this section. Notice of implementation of 
these special local regulations will be made by publication in the 
Federal Register 30 days prior to the event for those events without 
specific dates. In all cases, further information on exact dates, 
times, and other details concerning the number and type of participants 
and an exact geographical description of the areas are published by the 
Eleventh Coast Guard District in the Local Notice to Mariners at least 
20 days prior to each event. To be placed on the mailing list for Local 
Notice to Mariners contact: Commander (dpw), Eleventh Coast Guard 
District, Coast Guard Island, Building 50-2, Alameda, CA 94501-5100. 
Note: Sponsors of events listed in Table 1 of this section must submit 
an application each year in accordance with 33 CFR 100.15 to the 
cognizant Coast Guard

[[Page 6460]]

Sector Commander no less than 60 days before the start of the proposed 
event. Sponsors are informed that ample lead time is required to inform 
all Federal, state, local agencies, and/or other interested parties and 
to provide the sponsor the best support to ensure the safety of life 
and property.
    (b) Special local regulations. All persons and vessels not 
registered with the sponsor as participants or as official patrol 
vessels are considered spectators. The ``official patrol'' consists of 
any Coast Guard or other vessel assigned or approved by the cognizant 
Coast Guard Sector Commander to patrol each event.
    (1) No spectator shall anchor, block, loiter, nor impede the 
through transit of participants or official patrol vessels in the 
regulated areas during all applicable effective dates and times unless 
cleared to do so by or through an official patrol vessel.
    (2) When hailed and/or signaled by an official patrol vessel, any 
spectator located within a regulated area during all applicable 
effective dates and times shall come to an immediate stop.
    (3) The Patrol Commander (PATCOM) is empowered to control the 
movement of all vessels in the regulated area or to restrict vessels 
from entering the regulated area. The Patrol Commander shall be 
designated by the cognizant Coast Guard Sector Commander; will be a 
U.S. Coast Guard commissioned officer, warrant officer, or petty 
officer to act as the Sector Commander's official representative; and 
will be located aboard the lead official patrol vessel. As the Sector 
Commander's representative, the PATCOM may terminate the event any time 
it is deemed necessary for the protection of life and property. PATCOM 
may be reached on VHF-FM Channel 13 (156.65MHz) or 16 (156.8MHz) when 
required, by the call sign ``PATCOM.''
    (4) The Patrol Commander may, upon request, allow the transit of 
commercial vessels through regulated areas when it is safe to do so.
    (5) The Coast Guard may be assisted by other Federal, state, or 
local agencies.

these special local regulations will be made by publication in the 
Federal Register 30 days prior to the event for those events without 
specific dates or by Notice to Mariners 20 Days prior to the event for 
those events listing a period for which a firm date is identifiable. In 
all cases, further information on exact dates, times, and other details 
concerning the number and type of participants and an exact 
geographical description of the areas are published by the Eleventh

to Mariners contact: Commander (dpw), Eleventh Coast Guard District, 
Coast Guard Island, Building 50-2, Alameda, CA 94501-5100.  Note: 
Sponsors of events listed in Table 1 of this section must submit an 
application each year in accordance with 33 CFR 100.15 to the cognizant 
Coast Guard Sector Commander no less than 60 days before the start of 
the proposed event. Sponsors are informed that ample lead time is 
required to inform all Federal, state, local agencies, and/or other 
interested parties and to provide the sponsor the best support to 
ensure the safety of life and property. A Coast Guard-National Park 
Service agreement exists for both the Glen Canyon and Lake Mead 
National Recreational Areas; applicants shall contact the cognizant 
authority for approval of events in these areas.
    (b) Special local regulations. All persons and vessels not 
registered with the sponsor as participants or as official patrol 
vessels are considered spectators. The ``official patrol'' consists of 
any Coast Guard, other Federal, state or local law enforcement, and any 
public or sponsor-provided vessels assigned or approved by the 
cognizant Coast Guard Sector Commander to patrol each event.
    (1) No spectator shall anchor, block, loiter, nor impede the 
through transit of participants or official patrol vessels in the 
regulated areas during all applicable effective dates and times unless 
cleared to do so by or through an official patrol vessel.
    (2) When hailed and/or signaled by an official patrol vessel, any 
spectator located within a regulated area during all applicable 
effective dates and times shall come to an immediate stop.
    (3) The Patrol Commander (PATCOM) is empowered to control the 
movement of all vessels in the regulated area or to restrict vessels 
from entering the regulated area. The Patrol Commander shall be 
designated by the cognizant Coast Guard Sector Commander; will be a 
U.S. Coast Guard commissioned officer, warrant officer, or petty 
officer to act as the Sector Commander's official representative; and 
will be located aboard the lead official patrol vessel. As the Sector 
Commander's representative, the PATCOM may terminate the event any time 
it is deemed necessary for the protection of life and property. PATCOM 
may be reached on VHF-FM Channel 13 (156.65MHz) or 16 (156.8MHz) when 
required, by the call sign ``PATCOM.''
    (4) The Patrol Commander may, upon request, allow the transit of 
commercial vessels through regulated areas when it is safe to do so.
    (5) The Coast Guard may be assisted by other Federal, state, or 
local agencies.
