Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is amending several permanent safety zones located in the Eleventh Coast Guard District that are established to protect public safety during annual firework displays. These amendments will standardize the safety zone language, update listed events, delete events that are no longer occurring, add new annual fireworks events, and establish a standardized format using a table to list these recurring annual fireworks events. When these safety zones are activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this rule will limit the movement of vessels within the established firework display area.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES A. Regulatory History and Information On December 10th, 2013, we published a NPRM entitled Eleventh Coast Guard District Annual Fireworks Events, in the Federal Register (78 FR 74048). One comment was received in response to the NPRM and there were no requests for a public meeting. A public meeting was not held. The comment that was received stressed that public safety should be the first priority during any fireworks event, making it necessary for the Coast Guard to establish and enforce safety zones that are apparent and clear to the public. The author also believes better clarity can be achieved by using standardized language when publishing regulations. B. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard is conducting this rulemaking under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 1231. Fireworks displays are held annually on a recurring basis on the navigable waters within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. Many of the annual fireworks events that require safety zones do not currently reflect some of the required information pertinent to the events such as the dates of the events and other required information that is described below. These safety zones are necessary to provide for the safety of the crew, spectators, participants in the event, participating vessels, and other users and vessels of the waterway from the hazards associated with firework displays. This rule will also provide the public with current information on safety zone locations, size, and length of time the zones will be active. The effect of these safety zones 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:50 Feb 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 Commander, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the regulated area. These regulations are needed to keep all spectators and vessels a safe distance away from the fireworks displays. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule We received one comment and no requests for a public meeting after publishing the NPRM for this rule. The comment that was received stressed that public safety should be the first priority during any fireworks event, making it necessary for the Coast Guard to establish and enforce safety zones that are apparent and clear to the public. The comment was not adverse in nature, therefore, no changes have been made to the regulatory text of this rule. The Coast Guard has reviewed 33 CFR part 165 sections 1123, 1124, and 1191 for accuracy. The Coast Guard is amending Table 1 in sections 1123, 1124, and 1191 of Title 33 CFR as follows: existing events are being updated with current information; unlisted events are being added; and listed events that the Coast Guard has been unable to verify as still in existence are being deleted. The Coast Guard is amending the annual fireworks events for the San Diego Captain of the Port zone listed in 33 CFR part 165 section 1123 as follows: 4 events require updating to reflect current sponsor information and event location. These events are the ‘‘San Diego CA POPS Fireworks Display’’, ‘‘Fourth of July Fireworks, Mission Bay’’, ‘‘Coronado Glorietta Bay Fourth of July Fireworks’’, and ‘‘San Diego Parade of Lights Fireworks Display.’’ Through this rulemaking, three new safety zones are being added for the following events. The first new safety zone is for the ‘‘Big Bay Boom Fourth of July Fireworks’’ event occurring one evening during the first week of July in San Diego Bay. This event requires four 1,000 foot radius safety zones around barges located at Shelter Island, Harbor Island, Embarcadero, and Seaport Village. The second new safety zone is for the ‘‘MIDWAY Fireworks’’ event occurring on various evenings throughout the year on the USS MIDWAY in San Diego Bay. The safety zone will be 800 feet in radius around a barge located immediately to the west of the USS MIDWAY at approximately 32 42′46″ N, 117 10′47″ W. The third new safety zone is for the ‘‘Sea World Fireworks’’ event in Mission Bay occurring nightly between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and on approximately 10 evenings between Labor Day and Memorial Day. The safety zone at Sea World, Mission Bay, PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 9089 will be 800 feet in radius around a barge located at approximately 32 46′03″ N, 117 13′11″ W. Sea World Fireworks events will also be scheduled between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day as conditions allow. The Coast Guard is amending the annual fireworks events listed in 33 CFR 165 section 1124 within the San Diego Captain of the Port zone for the Colorado River, between Davis Dam (Bullhead City, AZ) and Headgate Dam (Parker, AZ) as follows: 4 events require updating with current sponsor information and event locations. These events are the ‘‘Avi Resort & Casino Memorial Day Fireworks’’, ‘‘Laughlin/ Bullhead City Rockets Over the River Fireworks’’, ‘‘Avi Resort & Casino Independence Day Fireworks’’, and the ‘‘Avi Resort & Casino Labor Day Fireworks.’’ Through this rulemaking, two new safety zones are being added for the following events. The first new safety zone is for the ‘‘Colorado Belle & Edgewater Hotel/Casino Thanksgiving Fireworks’’ event occurring in the lower Colorado River at Laughlin, NV. The safety zone will encompass the following coordinates: 35 09′51″ N, 114 34′08″ W; 35 09′53″ N, 114 34′15″ W along the shoreline to 35 09′31″ N, 114 34′17″ W; 35 09′33″ N, 114 34′08″ W along the shoreline to 35 09′51″ N, 114 34′08″ W. The second new safety zone is for the ‘‘Colorado Belle & Edgewater Hotel/Casino New Years Eve Fireworks’’ event occurring on the lower Colorado River at Laughlin, NV. The safety zone will encompass the following coordinates: 35 09′51″ N, 114 34′08″ W; 35 09′53″ N, 114 34′15″ W along the shoreline to 35 09′31″ N, 114 34′18″ W; 35 09′33″ N, 114 34′08″ W along the shoreline to 35 09′51″ N, 114 34′08″ W. The Coast Guard is amending the annual fireworks events listed in 33 CFR 165 section 1191 within the San Francisco Captain of the Port zone for the Northern California and Lake Tahoe Area as follows: 14 events require updating to reflect current sponsor information and event location. The Coast Guard is updating the following 14 numerically listed events in Table 1 of this section: (1), (4), (5), (6), (7), (9), (11), (13), (14), (15), (16), (20), (24), (25). Through this rulemaking, two new safety zones are being added for the following events. The first new safety zone is for the ‘‘Jameson Beach Fourth of July Fireworks’’ event, occurring at South Lake Tahoe near Jameson Beach. This safety zone will be 560 feet in radius around the fireworks barge. The second new safety zone is for the ‘‘Feast of Lanterns Fireworks’’ event, occurring on the last Saturday in July near Lovers Point Park in Pacific Grove. This safety E:\FR\FM\18FER1.SGM 18FER1 9090 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 32 / Tuesday, February 18, 2014 / Rules and Regulations zone will be 490 feet in radius around the launch platform located on the beach at approximately 36°37′26″ N, 121°54′54″ W. Finally, the Coast Guard is deleting three safety zones for events that no longer take place within the San Francisco Captain of the Port zone. Those three events are: the ‘‘Fourth of July Fireworks, City of Monterey’’, the ‘‘Jack London Square Fourth of July Fireworks’’, and the ‘‘Independence Day Celebration, City of Stockton.’’ 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. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 would 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, VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:50 Feb 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 transit, or anchor in the waters affected by these safety zones. This rule 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 safety zones to engage in these activities. Small entities and the maritime public will be advised of the activation of these safety zones 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 (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 have determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 would 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 E:\FR\FM\18FER1.SGM 18FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 32 / Tuesday, February 18, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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 establishing, updating, or removing temporary safety zones for fireworks displays. The fireworks are launched from navigable waters of the United States and may have potential for negative impact on the safety or other interest of waterway users and near shore activities in the event area. The activites include fireworks launched from barges near the shoreline that generally rely on the use of navigable waters as a safety buffer to protect the public from fireworks fallouts and premature detonations. 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 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. 9091 requirements, Security measures, Waterways.

Safety Zones; Eleventh Coast Guard District Annual Fireworks 
Events

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is amending several permanent safety zones 
located in the Eleventh Coast Guard District that are established to 
protect public safety during annual firework displays. These amendments 
will standardize the safety zone language, update listed events, delete 
events that are no longer occurring, add new annual fireworks events, 
and establish a standardized format using a table to list these 
recurring annual fireworks events. When these safety zones are 
activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this rule will limit the 
movement of vessels within the established firework display area.

DATES: This rule is effective March 20, 2014.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    On December 10th, 2013, we published a NPRM entitled Eleventh Coast 
Guard District Annual Fireworks Events, in the Federal Register (78 FR 
74048). One comment was received in response to the NPRM and there were 
no requests for a public meeting. A public meeting was not held.
    The comment that was received stressed that public safety should be 
the first priority during any fireworks event, making it necessary for 
the Coast Guard to establish and enforce safety zones that are apparent 
and clear to the public. The author also believes better clarity can be 
achieved by using standardized language when publishing regulations.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The Coast Guard is conducting this rulemaking under the authority 
of 33 U.S.C. 1231.
    Fireworks displays are held annually on a recurring basis on the 
navigable waters within the Eleventh Coast Guard District. Many of the 
annual fireworks events that require safety zones do not currently 
reflect some of the required information pertinent to the events such 
as the dates of the events and other required information that is 
described below. These safety zones are necessary to provide for the 
safety of the crew, spectators, participants in the event, 
participating vessels, and other users and vessels of the waterway from 
the hazards associated with firework displays. This rule will also 
provide the public with current information on safety zone locations, 
size, and length of time the zones will be active.
    The effect of these safety zones 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 all spectators and vessels a safe distance away from the fireworks 
displays.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    We received one comment and no requests for a public meeting after 
publishing the NPRM for this rule. The comment that was received 
stressed that public safety should be the first priority during any 
fireworks event, making it necessary for the Coast Guard to establish 
and enforce safety zones that are apparent and clear to the public. The 
comment was not adverse in nature, therefore, no changes have been made 
to the regulatory text of this rule.
    The Coast Guard has reviewed 33 CFR part 165 sections 1123, 1124, 
and 1191 for accuracy. The Coast Guard is amending Table 1 in sections 
1123, 1124, and 1191 of Title 33 CFR as follows: existing events are 
being updated with current information; unlisted events are being 
added; and listed events that the Coast Guard has been unable to verify 
as still in existence are being deleted.
    The Coast Guard is amending the annual fireworks events for the San 
Diego Captain of the Port zone listed in 33 CFR part 165 section 1123 
as follows: 4 events require updating to reflect current sponsor 
information and event location. These events are the ``San Diego CA 
POPS Fireworks Display'', ``Fourth of July Fireworks, Mission Bay'', 
``Coronado Glorietta Bay Fourth of July Fireworks'', and ``San Diego 
Parade of Lights Fireworks Display.'' Through this rulemaking, three 
new safety zones are being added for the following events. The first 
new safety zone is for the ``Big Bay Boom Fourth of July Fireworks'' 
event occurring one evening during the first week of July in San Diego 
Bay. This event requires four 1,000 foot radius safety zones around 
barges located at Shelter Island, Harbor Island, Embarcadero, and 
Seaport Village. The second new safety zone is for the ``MIDWAY 
Fireworks'' event occurring on various evenings throughout the year on 
the USS MIDWAY in San Diego Bay. The safety zone will be 800 feet in 
radius around a barge located immediately to the west of the USS MIDWAY 
at approximately 32 42'46'' N, 117 10'47'' W. The third new safety zone 
is for the ``Sea World Fireworks'' event in Mission Bay occurring 
nightly between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and on approximately 10 
evenings between Labor Day and Memorial Day. The safety zone at Sea 
World, Mission Bay, will be 800 feet in radius around a barge located 
at approximately 32 46'03'' N, 117 13'11'' W. Sea World Fireworks 
events will also be scheduled between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day 
as conditions allow.
    The Coast Guard is amending the annual fireworks events listed in 
33 CFR 165 section 1124 within the San Diego Captain of the Port zone 
for the Colorado River, between Davis Dam (Bullhead City, AZ) and 
Headgate Dam (Parker, AZ) as follows: 4 events require updating with 
current sponsor information and event locations. These events are the 
``Avi Resort & Casino Memorial Day Fireworks'', ``Laughlin/Bullhead 
City Rockets Over the River Fireworks'', ``Avi Resort & Casino 
Independence Day Fireworks'', and the ``Avi Resort & Casino Labor Day 
Fireworks.'' Through this rulemaking, two new safety zones are being 
added for the following events. The first new safety zone is for the 
``Colorado Belle & Edgewater Hotel/Casino Thanksgiving Fireworks'' 
event occurring in the lower Colorado River at Laughlin, NV. The safety 
zone will encompass the following coordinates: 35 09'51'' N, 114 
34'08'' W; 35 09'53'' N, 114 34'15'' W along the shoreline to 35 
09'31'' N, 114 34'17'' W; 35 09'33'' N, 114 34'08'' W along the 
shoreline to 35 09'51'' N, 114 34'08'' W. The second new safety zone is 
for the ``Colorado Belle & Edgewater Hotel/Casino New Years Eve 
Fireworks'' event occurring on the lower Colorado River at Laughlin, 
NV. The safety zone will encompass the following coordinates: 35 
09'51'' N, 114 34'08'' W; 35 09'53'' N, 114 34'15'' W along the 
shoreline to 35 09'31'' N, 114 34'18'' W; 35 09'33'' N, 114 34'08'' W 
along the shoreline to 35 09'51'' N, 114 34'08'' W.
    The Coast Guard is amending the annual fireworks events listed in 
33 CFR 165 section 1191 within the San Francisco Captain of the Port 
zone for the Northern California and Lake Tahoe Area as follows: 14 
events require updating to reflect current sponsor information and 
event location. The Coast Guard is updating the following 14 
numerically listed events in Table 1 of this section: (1), (4), (5), 
(6), (7), (9), (11), (13), (14), (15), (16), (20), (24), (25). Through 
this rulemaking, two new safety zones are being added for the following 
events. The first new safety zone is for the ``Jameson Beach Fourth of 
July Fireworks'' event, occurring at South Lake Tahoe near Jameson 
Beach. This safety zone will be 560 feet in radius around the fireworks 
barge. The second new safety zone is for the ``Feast of Lanterns 
Fireworks'' event, occurring on the last Saturday in July near Lovers 
Point Park in Pacific Grove. This safety

[[Page 9090]]

zone will be 490 feet in radius around the launch platform located on 
the beach at approximately 36[deg]37'26'' N, 121[deg]54'54'' W. 
Finally, the Coast Guard is deleting three safety zones for events that 
no longer take place within the San Francisco Captain of the Port zone. 
Those three events are: the ``Fourth of July Fireworks, City of 
Monterey'', the ``Jack London Square Fourth of July Fireworks'', and 
the ``Independence Day Celebration, City of Stockton.''

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 would 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 
safety zones. This rule 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 safety zones to engage 
in these activities. Small entities and the maritime public will be 
advised of the activation of these safety zones 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 (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 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 would 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

[[Page 9091]]

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 establishing, updating, or removing 
temporary safety zones for fireworks displays. The fireworks are 
launched from navigable waters of the United States and may have 
potential for negative impact on the safety or other interest of 
waterway users and near shore activities in the event area. The 
activites include fireworks launched from barges near the shoreline 
that generally rely on the use of navigable waters as a safety buffer 
to protect the public from fireworks fallouts and premature 
detonations. 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 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.
