Basis and Purpose The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 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, E:\FR\FM\18FEP1.SGM 18FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 32 / Tuesday, February 18, 2014 / Proposed Rules emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 6.04–6, and 160.5; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to propose, establish, and define regulatory safety zones. The Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL plans to bring in a large sea plane for display at the museum. The sea plane, with a wing span of 200 feet, will land in Bayou Grande and be brought ashore near the Naval Aviation Station’s runway. The landing of the plane poses significant safety hazards to both vessels and mariners operating in Bayou Grande. C. Discussion of Proposed Rule The COTP Mobile proposes to establish a temporary safety zone for a portion of Bayou Grande, Pensacola, FL. The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone for a portion of Bayou Grande, Pensacola, FL. The proposed safety zone will be enforced for a short period during the sea plane landing and transit occurring on one day between April 21, 2014 and May 4, 2014. Notice of the specific date and times of enforcement will be provided via broadcast notice to mariners and local notice to mariners. The specific date, time, landing path and transit to the Naval Aviation Station has yet to be determined. Specific boundaries for this proposed temporary safety zone will be defined in the Temporary Final Rule to be published in the Federal Register following the NPRM 15 day comment period. This proposed rule will protect the safety of life and property in the Bayou Grande area. Entry into, transiting in or anchoring in the zone shall be prohibited to all vessels, mariners, and persons unless specifically authorized by the COTP Mobile or a designated representative. The COTP may be contacted by telephone at 251–441–5976. The COTP Mobile or a designated representative will inform the public through Broadcast Notice to Mariners of changes in the effective period for the safety zone. This proposed rule would be effective from April 21, 2014 through May 4, 2014. The proposed safety zone will be enforced for a short period during the sea plane landing and transit occurring on one day between April 21, 2014 and May 4, 2014. Notice of the specific date and times of this proposed safety zone and its enforcement will be provided via broadcast notice to mariner and local notice to mariners. The COTP anticipates minimal impact on vessel traffic due to this regulation. However, this safety zone is deemed necessary for the protection of life and property within the COTP Mobile zone. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:22 Feb 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 The Naval Aviation Museum has an active work group conducting meetings with federal, state, and local agencies and businesses and the Coast Guard does not anticipate any adverse comments or objections to this rulemaking. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes or executive orders. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This proposed 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 safety zone listed in this proposed rule will only restrict vessel traffic from entering, transiting or anchoring in a small portion of Bayou Grande, Pensacola, FL. The effect of this regulation will not be significant for several reasons: (1) this proposed rule will only affect vessel traffic for a short duration; (2) vessels may request permission from the COTP to transit through the safety zone; and (3) the impacts on routine navigation are expected to be minimal. Notifications to the marine community will be made through Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. These notifications will allow the public to plan operations around the affected area. 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 proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This proposed rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 9119 operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in affected portions of Bayou Grande during the landing of the sea plane. This safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This safety zone is limited in size, is of short duration and vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Mobile or a designated representative to enter or transit through the zone. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this proposed rule would economically affect it. 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 proposed rule. If the proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 4. Collection of Information This proposed 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 proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it 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 E:\FR\FM\18FEP1.SGM 18FEP1 9120 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 32 / Tuesday, February 18, 2014 / Proposed Rules 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 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 From Environmental Health Risks We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This proposed 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. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 11. Indian Tribal Governments This proposed 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 proposed rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:22 Feb 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 13. Technical Standards This proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14. Environment We have analyzed this proposed 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 made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This proposed rule involves safety for the public and is not expected to result in any significant adverse environmental impact as described in NEPA. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary 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 proposed rule.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 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,

[[Page 9119]]

6.04-6, and 160.5; Public Law 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department 
of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively 
authorize the Coast Guard to propose, establish, and define regulatory 
safety zones. The Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL plans to bring 
in a large sea plane for display at the museum. The sea plane, with a 
wing span of 200 feet, will land in Bayou Grande and be brought ashore 
near the Naval Aviation Station's runway. The landing of the plane 
poses significant safety hazards to both vessels and mariners operating 
in Bayou Grande.

C. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The COTP Mobile proposes to establish a temporary safety zone for a 
portion of Bayou Grande, Pensacola, FL.
    The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone for a 
portion of Bayou Grande, Pensacola, FL. The proposed safety zone will 
be enforced for a short period during the sea plane landing and transit 
occurring on one day between April 21, 2014 and May 4, 2014. Notice of 
the specific date and times of enforcement will be provided via 
broadcast notice to mariners and local notice to mariners. The specific 
date, time, landing path and transit to the Naval Aviation Station has 
yet to be determined. Specific boundaries for this proposed temporary 
safety zone will be defined in the Temporary Final Rule to be published 
in the Federal Register following the NPRM 15 day comment period. This 
proposed rule will protect the safety of life and property in the Bayou 
Grande area. Entry into, transiting in or anchoring in the zone shall 
be prohibited to all vessels, mariners, and persons unless specifically 
authorized by the COTP Mobile or a designated representative.
    The COTP may be contacted by telephone at 251-441-5976. The COTP 
Mobile or a designated representative will inform the public through 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners of changes in the effective period for the 
safety zone. This proposed rule would be effective from April 21, 2014 
through May 4, 2014. The proposed safety zone will be enforced for a 
short period during the sea plane landing and transit occurring on one 
day between April 21, 2014 and May 4, 2014. Notice of the specific date 
and times of this proposed safety zone and its enforcement will be 
provided via broadcast notice to mariner and local notice to mariners.
    The COTP anticipates minimal impact on vessel traffic due to this 
regulation. However, this safety zone is deemed necessary for the 
protection of life and property within the COTP Mobile zone. The Naval 
Aviation Museum has an active work group conducting meetings with 
federal, state, and local agencies and businesses and the Coast Guard 
does not anticipate any adverse comments or objections to this 
rulemaking.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on a number of these statutes or executive orders.

1. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This proposed 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 safety zone listed in this proposed rule will only restrict 
vessel traffic from entering, transiting or anchoring in a small 
portion of Bayou Grande, Pensacola, FL. The effect of this regulation 
will not be significant for several reasons: (1) this proposed rule 
will only affect vessel traffic for a short duration; (2) vessels may 
request permission from the COTP to transit through the safety zone; 
and (3) the impacts on routine navigation are expected to be minimal. 
Notifications to the marine community will be made through Local Notice 
to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. These notifications will 
allow the public to plan operations around the affected area.

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 
proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. This proposed rule will affect 
the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners 
or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in affected 
portions of Bayou Grande during the landing of the sea plane. This 
safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This 
safety zone is limited in size, is of short duration and vessel traffic 
may request permission from the COTP Mobile or a designated 
representative to enter or transit through the zone.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed rule 
would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment 
(see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to 
what degree this proposed rule would economically affect it.

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 proposed rule. If the proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate 
against small entities that question or complain about this proposed 
rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

    This proposed 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 proposed rule under that Order and 
have determined that it 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 proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this 
proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble.

8. Taking of Private Property

    This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 From Environmental Health Risks

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, 
Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks. This proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we 
did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

14. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed 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 made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a 
category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a 
significant effect on the human environment. This proposed rule 
involves safety for the public and is not expected to result in any 
significant adverse environmental impact as described in NEPA. This 
rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 
34(g) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary 
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 
proposed rule.
