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. 14. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves the closure of the port to all traffic. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34g of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, Waterways. For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 33 CFR Part 165 as follows: PART 165—REGULATED NAVIGATION AREAS AND LIMITED ACCESS AREAS 1. The authority citation for part 165 continues to read as follows: ■ (2) No spectator shall anchor, block, loiter or impede the transit of participants or support/enforcement vessels in the safety zone while this section is effective, unless cleared by or through a support/enforcement vessel. (3) Spectator vessels may be moored to a waterfront facility within the safety zone in such a way that they shall not interfere with the progress of the events. Such mooring must be complete at least 30 minutes prior to the effective period of this section and remain moored through the duration of the events. (d) Informational Broadcasts. The COTP or a designated representative will inform the public through broadcast notices to mariners of the enforcement period for the safety zone as well as any changes in the planned schedule. Once the zone is being enforced, due to the commencement of the race, transiting, anchoring, and loitering in the harbor is forbidden and the harbor will remain closed until 8:30 a.m., or earlier if the Coast Guard issues an ‘‘All Clear’’ after the race has concluded and the harbor is deemed safe for normal operations.

Add § 165.T14–0014 to read as follows: Coast Guard § 165.T14–0014 Safety Zone; Pago Pago Harbor, America Samoa. 33 CFR Part 165 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 10. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. (a) Location. The following area is a safety zone: All waters encompassed by a line starting at Breakers Point (eastern edge of Pago Pago Harbor entrance) thence southeast to 14° 18′47″ S, 170° 38′54.5″ W thence southwest to 14° 19′03″ S, 170° 39′14″ W, thence northwest to Tulutulu Point and then following the Pago Pago Harbor coastline back to the point of origins. This safety zone extends from the surface of the water to the ocean floor. (b) Enforcement period. This section will be enforced from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. (SST) on April 17, 2014. (c) Regulations. (1) All persons and vessels not registered with the sponsor as participants or support/enforcement vessels are considered spectators. The ‘‘support/enforcement vessels’’ consist of any territory, or local law enforcement and sponsor provided vessels assigned or approved by the COTP Honolulu to patrol the safety zone. 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.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard finalizes regulations previously published as an interim rule on July 9, 2013. In this final rule, the Coast Guard removes the wave height and surface current provisions and regulated boating areas for bar crossing locations along the coasts of Oregon and Washington because they conflict with more recently promulgated wave height provisions and regulated boating areas for the same bar crossings. This amendment is necessary in order to remove confusion as to which safety requirements apply to recreational vessels, uninspected passenger vessels, small passenger vessels, and commercial fishing vessels when operating within the regulated navigation areas. DATES: This final rule is effective May 14, 2014.

Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking NTSB National Transportation Safety Board RNA Regulated Navigation Area U.S.C. United States Code II. Regulatory History and Information The bars along the coasts of Oregon and Washington are a maritime operating environment unique to the Pacific Northwest. Bars are commonly defined as areas of shallow water that lead into rivers and bays. At times, bars become extremely hazardous for vessels to navigate due to strong currents and large waves that can form when strong ocean currents pass over the bars. Until 2009, the bars along the coast of Oregon and Washington were regulated in 33 CFR Part 177. On February 12, 2009, the Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (74 FR 7022) that proposed to establish Regulated Navigation Areas (RNAs) in 33 CFR 165.1325 for bars along the coasts of Oregon and Washington. RNAs are areas of water within a defined boundary that, for reasons of safety or environmental concerns, the Coast Guard has implemented regulations on the operation of vessels permitted inside the defined area. The proposals in the NPRM were designed to help ensure the safety of persons and vessels operating on or in the vicinity of the bars. The Coast Guard subsequently published a final rule in the Federal Register on November 17, 2009 (74 FR 59098), adopting most of the NPRM’s proposals. Certain provisions in that 2009 final rule superseded other provisions in Part 177 that governed bar crossing along the coasts of Oregon and Washington. Specifically, 33 CFR 165.1325(a) sets forth the specific locations for the RNAs that cover the bars along the Oregon and Washington coasts, and supersedes the E:\FR\FM\14APR1.SGM 14APR1
