This interim final rule does not represent an exercise of Commission discretion that alters substantive rights and obligations imposed by statute and Commission rule currently. As discussed earlier, the interim final rule merely clarifies the existing scope of § 49.17(f)(2) by making explicit a statutory limitation that, absent this clarification, applies implicitly: The exception to the general prohibition against market participant access to SDR data does not sanction practices that contravene the statutory privacy requirements of CEA section 21(c)(6). As such, substantively, the interim final rule poses no incremental costs or benefits relative to regulatory requirements that are now operative.25 This interim final rule is not void of any discretionary element, however. By issuing the interim final rule, the Commission is exercising its discretion to clarify, by amendment, the existing scope of § 49.17(f)(2), rather than leaving this regulatory provision in its current form. By making explicit a limitation on the scope of § 49.17(f)(2) that exists by virtue of the statutory privacy requirements of CEA section 21(c)(6), the interim final rule addresses a potential source of uncertainty for market participants,26 and, in so doing, promotes the public interests in market integrity and, more generally, in regulatory clarity and certainty. Conversely, the Commission sees no costs resultant from this discretionary act of clarification.27 24 CEA section 15(a). with these existing requirements may, however, entail some expenditure. For example, to comply with CEA section 21(c)(6) registered SDRs may incur certain costs associated with programming their systems to recognize swaps that are executed anonymously on a SEF or a DCM and cleared, as described herein, and to prevent a counterparty’s access to the identity and LEI of the other counterparty to such a swap, and such counterparty’s clearing member for the swap. 26 See note 15, supra. 27 The Commission recognizes that if, to date, any market participant has not read § 49.17(f)(2) with reference to the statutory privacy limitations of CEA section 21(c)(6), the market participant may have developed systems and processes that require modification to comply with these statutory limitations. In any such case, the clarifying amendment effected by this interim final rule should alert the market participant to the need for modification. Such modification may entail some cost to implement. However, any such modification costs would not arise from the Commission’s exercise of its discretion, in this interim final rule, emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES 25 Complying VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:11 Mar 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 List of Subjects in 17 CFR Part 49 Swap data repositories, Registration and regulatory requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking TFR Temporary Final Rule A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard published two TFRs both entitled Safety Zones; Revolution 3 E:\FR\FM\26MRR1.SGM 26MRR1 16676 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 58 / Wednesday, March 26, 2014 / Rules and Regulations Triathlon, Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Cedar Point, OH in the Federal Register for this event on September 13, 2010 (75 FR 55477) and September 8, 2011 (76 FR 55564). Because this event will recur annually, the Captain of the Port Detroit decided to establish permanent safety zones and thus, alleviate the need to publish TFRs in the future. On August 16, 2012, the Coast Guard published an NPRM entitled Safety Zones; Revolution 3 Triathlon, Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Cedar Point, OH in the Federal Register (77 FR 49401) and again on June 14, 2013, the Coast Guard published an NPRM with the same proposed regulatory text (78 FR 35789). We did not receive any comments in response to the proposed rule after either publication. No public meeting was requested and none was held. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES B. Basis and Purpose Each year, the Revolution 3 Triathlon occurs at Cedar Point near Sandusky, OH. This event occurs for two consecutive days during the first or second week of September. During the first leg of the event, participants enter the water and swim along a predetermined course. While the primary course is on the eastern side of Cedar Point, an alternate location is on the western side of Cedar Point, in the vicinity of the Cedar Point Marina in the event of inclement weather. The likely combination of large numbers of inexperienced recreational boaters, possibly varying lake conditions and large number of swimmers in the water could easily result in serious injuries or fatalities. Thus, the Captain of the Port Detroit is establishing a permanent safety zone in the vicinity of the primary and alternate swimming courses to protect against injuries and fatalities. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule As noted, we received no comments on the 2012 (77 FR 49401) or 2013 (78 FR 35789) NPRMs, and we didn’t make any substantive changes from the location or enforcement periods. We did, however, place these safety zones in the existing 33 CFR 165.941, which has 59 other safety zones for annual events in the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone, instead of creating a separate § 165.917. As suggested above, the safety zones created by this rule are intended to ensure the safety of participants and of the public and vessels during the Revolution 3 Triathlon. These safety zones will be enforced annually on two consecutive days during the first or second weekend of September. On each VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:11 Mar 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 day, it is expected that these safety zones will be enforced from 6:50 a.m. until 10 a.m. The exact dates and times of enforcement, however, will be determined annually and the Captain of the Port will issue a Notice of Enforcement to notify the public. The safety zone created by this rule for the primary race course encompasses all waters of Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Cedar Point, OH within a line starting at position 41–29′–00.04″ N 082–40′– 48.16″ W to 41–29′–19.28″ N 082–40′– 38.97″ W to 41–29′–02.51″ N 082–40′– 20.82″ W to 41–28′–45.52″ N 082–40′– 35.75″ W, and then following the shoreline to the point of origin. These coordinates are North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). In the event that weather requires triathlon organizers to change the locations of the swimming leg, the alternate race course safety zone will encompass all waters of Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Cedar Point, OH extending outward 100 yards on either side of a line running between 41–28′– 38.59″ N 082–41′–10.51″ W and 41–28′– 17.25″ N 082–40′–54.09″ W running adjacent to the Cedar Point Marina. These coordinates are North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). The Captain of the Port Detroit will use all appropriate means to notify the public when the safety zones established by this rule will be enforced. Such means will include a notice of enforcement published annually in the Federal Register, and consistent with 33 CFR 165.7(a), may include, among other things, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, Local Notice to Mariners, or, upon request, by facsimile (fax). Also, the Captain of the Port will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the public if the enforcement of these safety zones in this section is cancelled prematurely. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within these safety zones during the period of enforcement is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Detroit, or his designated representative. The Captain of the Port or his designated representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. 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 that Order. It is not ‘‘significant’’ under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this rule is not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The safety zones established by this rule will be relatively small and enforced for relatively short time. Also, each safety zone is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. Thus, restrictions on vessel movements within any particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through each safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port. 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 or executive orders. 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 so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. If this 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the above portions of Lake Erie during the period that either of the safety zones is being enforced. E:\FR\FM\26MRR1.SGM 26MRR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 58 / Wednesday, March 26, 2014 / Rules and Regulations listed in FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section, 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. Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. 4. Collection of Information 11. Indian Tribal Governments This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. 5. Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:11 Mar 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 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. 12. Energy Effects This action is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. 13. Technical Standards This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have 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 rule involves the establishment of safety zones and thus, is categorically excluded under paragraph (34)(g) of the Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 16677 lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard published two TFRs both entitled Safety Zones; 
Revolution 3

[[Page 16676]]

Triathlon, Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Cedar Point, OH in the Federal 
Register for this event on September 13, 2010 (75 FR 55477) and 
September 8, 2011 (76 FR 55564). Because this event will recur 
annually, the Captain of the Port Detroit decided to establish 
permanent safety zones and thus, alleviate the need to publish TFRs in 
the future.
    On August 16, 2012, the Coast Guard published an NPRM entitled 
Safety Zones; Revolution 3 Triathlon, Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Cedar 
Point, OH in the Federal Register (77 FR 49401) and again on June 14, 
2013, the Coast Guard published an NPRM with the same proposed 
regulatory text (78 FR 35789). We did not receive any comments in 
response to the proposed rule after either publication. No public 
meeting was requested and none was held.

B. Basis and Purpose

    Each year, the Revolution 3 Triathlon occurs at Cedar Point near 
Sandusky, OH. This event occurs for two consecutive days during the 
first or second week of September. During the first leg of the event, 
participants enter the water and swim along a predetermined course. 
While the primary course is on the eastern side of Cedar Point, an 
alternate location is on the western side of Cedar Point, in the 
vicinity of the Cedar Point Marina in the event of inclement weather. 
The likely combination of large numbers of inexperienced recreational 
boaters, possibly varying lake conditions and large number of swimmers 
in the water could easily result in serious injuries or fatalities. 
Thus, the Captain of the Port Detroit is establishing a permanent 
safety zone in the vicinity of the primary and alternate swimming 
courses to protect against injuries and fatalities.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    As noted, we received no comments on the 2012 (77 FR 49401) or 2013 
(78 FR 35789) NPRMs, and we didn't make any substantive changes from 
the location or enforcement periods. We did, however, place these 
safety zones in the existing 33 CFR 165.941, which has 59 other safety 
zones for annual events in the Captain of the Port Detroit Zone, 
instead of creating a separate Sec.  165.917.
    As suggested above, the safety zones created by this rule are 
intended to ensure the safety of participants and of the public and 
vessels during the Revolution 3 Triathlon. These safety zones will be 
enforced annually on two consecutive days during the first or second 
weekend of September. On each day, it is expected that these safety 
zones will be enforced from 6:50 a.m. until 10 a.m. The exact dates and 
times of enforcement, however, will be determined annually and the 
Captain of the Port will issue a Notice of Enforcement to notify the 
public.
    The safety zone created by this rule for the primary race course 
encompasses all waters of Lake Erie, Sandusky Bay, Cedar Point, OH 
within a line starting at position 41-29'-00.04'' N 082-40'-48.16'' W 
to 41-29'-19.28'' N 082-40'-38.97'' W to 41-29'-02.51'' N 082-40'-
20.82'' W to 41-28'-45.52'' N 082-40'-35.75'' W, and then following the 
shoreline to the point of origin. These coordinates are North American 
Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). In the event that weather requires triathlon 
organizers to change the locations of the swimming leg, the alternate 
race course safety zone will encompass all waters of Lake Erie, 
Sandusky Bay, Cedar Point, OH extending outward 100 yards on either 
side of a line running between 41-28'-38.59'' N 082-41'-10.51'' W and 
41-28'-17.25'' N 082-40'-54.09'' W running adjacent to the Cedar Point 
Marina. These coordinates are North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83).
    The Captain of the Port Detroit will use all appropriate means to 
notify the public when the safety zones established by this rule will 
be enforced. Such means will include a notice of enforcement published 
annually in the Federal Register, and consistent with 33 CFR 165.7(a), 
may include, among other things, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, Local 
Notice to Mariners, or, upon request, by facsimile (fax). Also, the 
Captain of the Port will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying 
the public if the enforcement of these safety zones in this section is 
cancelled prematurely.
    Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within these safety zones 
during the period of enforcement is prohibited unless authorized by the 
Captain of the Port Detroit, or his designated representative. The 
Captain of the Port or his designated representative may be contacted 
via VHF Channel 16.

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 or 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 that Order. It is not ``significant'' 
under the regulatory policies and procedures of the Department of 
Homeland Security (DHS). We conclude that this rule is not a 
significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have 
minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, 
will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, 
and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The safety zones 
established by this rule will be relatively small and enforced for 
relatively short time. Also, each safety zone is designed to minimize 
its impact on navigable waters. Thus, restrictions on vessel movements 
within any particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain 
conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through each safety 
zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small entities'' 
comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are 
independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, 
and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000.
    The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule 
would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities.
    This rule will affect the following entities, some of which might 
be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor in the above portions of Lake Erie during the period 
that either of the safety zones is being enforced.

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 so that they can better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. If this 
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

[[Page 16677]]

listed in FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section, 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 calls for no 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 State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this 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 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 does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

12. Energy Effects

    This action is not a ``significant energy action'' under Executive 
Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect 
Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use.

13. Technical Standards

    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

14. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have 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 rule involves the establishment 
of safety zones and thus, is categorically excluded under paragraph 
(34)(g) of the Instruction. An 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.
