The facts are the same as in Example 7, except that X is a foreign corporation that is not a U.S. payor under § 1.6049–5(c). (i) Y’s obligations to withhold and report. Y is not required to report the sales proceeds under the multiple broker exception under paragraph (c)(3)(iii) of this section, because X is the person responsible for paying the proceeds from the sale to A. (ii) X’s obligations to withhold and report. Although A is presumed to be a U.S. payee under the presumptions of § 1.6049–5(d)(2), X is not considered to be a broker under paragraph (a)(1) of this section because it is a not a U.S. payor under § 1.6049–5(c)(5). Therefore X is not required to report the sale under paragraph (c)(2) of this section. (5) Effective/applicability date—(i) [Reserved]. For further guidance, see § 1.6045–1(g)(5)(i). (ii) The provisions of paragraphs (g)(1)(i), (g)(3)(iv), and (g)(4) of this section apply to payments made on or after July 1, 2014. (h) through (p) [Reserved].

[FR Doc. 2014–09161 Filed 4–21–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4830–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 100 [Docket No. USCG–2013–1061] RIN 1625–AA08 Special Local Regulations; Eighth Coast Guard District Annual and Recurring Marine Events Update Coast Guard, DHS. Interim final rule; request for comments. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is amending and updating its special local regulations relating to recurring marine parades, regattas, and other events that take place in the Eighth Coast Guard District area of responsibility (AOR). This interim rule informs the public of regularly scheduled marine parades, regattas, and other recurring events that require additional safety measures through establishing a special local regulation. Through this interim rule the current list of recurring marine events requiring special local regulations is ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:06 Apr 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 updated with revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in the Eighth Coast Guard District AOR. When these special local regulations are enforced, certain restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas. Additionally, this one rulemaking project reduces administrative costs involved in producing a separate rule for each individual recurring event and serves to provide notice of the known recurring events requiring a special local regulation throughout the year. DATES: This rule is effective April 22, 2014. Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before May 22, 2014.

Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this interim final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule. This interim rule is effective upon publication without prior notice through publication in the Federal Register, but also invites comments regarding the updated list of events. The Coast Guard will address all comments accordingly, whether through response, additional VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:06 Apr 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 revision to the regulation, or otherwise. Completing the full NPRM process would unnecessarily delay the effective dates for the events listed to occur in April and May of 2014. This interim rule, prepared to provide the most up to date list of recurring marine events and special local regulations, provides ample notice for all listed events occurring after May. Additionally, these recurring events are noticed to the public through local avenues and planned on by the local communities. The current list of annual and recurring marine events and special local regulations occurring in the Eighth Coast Guard District AOR is published under 33 CFR part 100.801. That list was last updated May 16, 2012 through a previous rulemaking, [77 FR 2876] and received no adverse comments. Like this interim rule, the May 2012 update added to, removed from, and amended 33 CFR 100.801 to create a comprehensive list of recurring marine events requiring special local regulations. In addition to amending and updating the current list, this interim rule provides additional clarity by separating the events according to each Coast Guard Sector within the Eighth District. For the same reasons, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Providing a 30-day notice would unnecessarily delay the effective dates for the events listed to occur in April and May of 2014, which are also noticed to the public through local avenues and are planned on by the local communities. C. Basis and Purpose The basis for this interim rule is found in 33 U.S.C. 1233 which authorizes the Coast Guard to permit marine events and establish special local regulations related to those marine events. The Coast Guard is amending and updating the special local regulations under 33 CFR part 100 to incorporate the numerous annual marine events held on or around navigable waters within the Eighth Coast Guard District. These events include marine parades, boat races, swim events, and other marine related events. Currently, there is a list of events located at 33 CFR 100.801, establishing a special local regulation for each annual or recurring marine event in the Eighth Coast Guard District’s area of responsibility. That list PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 requires amending to provide new information on existing events and updating to include 42 new events expected to recur annually or biannually and remove 16 special local regulations that are not longer required. Issuing individual rulemakings for each new event, event requiring amendment, or removing an event creates unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This rule considerably reduces administrative overhead and provides the public with notice through publication in the Federal Register of the upcoming recurring marine events and their accompanying special local regulations. The Coast Guard encourages the public to participate in this rulemaking through the comment process so that any changes necessary can be identified and implemented in a timely and efficient manner. D. Discussion of the Interim Rule Title 33 CFR part 100 contains regulations to provide effective control over regattas and marine parades conducted on U.S. navigable waters to ensure safety of life in the regattas or marine parade area. Section 100.801 provides the regulations applicable to events taking place in the Eighth Coast Guard District and also provides a table listing each event and special local regulation. This section requires amendment from time to time to update to properly reflect the annually recurring marine events and special local regulations in the Eighth Coast Guard District. This interim rule amends and updates Section 100.801 replacing the current Table 1 with seven separate tables, one for each Sector within the Coast Guard’s Eighth District as follows: Table 1—Sector Ohio Valley Table 2—Sector Upper Mississippi River Table 3—Houston Galveston Table 4—Corpus Christi Table 5—New Orleans Table 6—Sector Lower Mississippi River Table 7—Sector Mobile Categorizing the events and special local regulations by Sector eliminates dual numbering within the District list and then again by Sector. Listing events and special local regulations by Sector also provides easier reference to a specific event or regulation. Additionally, this rule adds 42 new events with special local regulations and removes 16 events as follows: 26 events added under the new Table 1 for Sector Ohio Valley.

Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes or executive orders. 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 that 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 expects the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. The marine parades, regattas, and other marine events listed in this rule will restrict vessel traffic in certain areas of Eighth Coast Guard District waters at specified times; however, the effect of this regulation will not be significant because these events are short in duration and the special local regulations restricting and governing vessel movements are also limited in scope and short in duration. Additionally, the public is given advance notification through local forms of notice, the Federal Register, and/or Notices of Enforcement and thus will be able to plan operations around the events in advance. Deviations from each special local regulation may be requested through the COTP and each request will be considered on a case-bycase basis. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. This rule may affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the regulated areas during the marine events and periods of enforcement. The special local regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:06 Apr 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. These regulations are limited in scope and will be in effect for short periods of times. Before each enforcement period, the Coast Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories widely available to waterway users. Deviations from each special local regulation may be requested through the COTP and each request will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this interim final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 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. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we offer to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. 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 businesses. 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. 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. 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). Taking of Private Property This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. Civil Justice Reform 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. 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. Energy Effects 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. 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 We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. Technical Standards PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use E:\FR\FM\22APR1.SGM 22APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 77 / Tuesday, April 22, 2014 / Rules and Regulations voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 0023.1 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 which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2, figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h) of the Instruction because it involves establishment of special local regulations related to marine event permits for marine parades, regattas, and other marine events. An Environmental analysis and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for these regulations because the environmental review was performed during each marine event permit review process. 22387 List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 100 Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, and Waterways.

[Docket No. USCG-2013-1061]
RIN 1625-AA08


Special Local Regulations; Eighth Coast Guard District Annual and 
Recurring Marine Events Update

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Interim final rule; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is amending and updating its special local 
regulations relating to recurring marine parades, regattas, and other 
events that take place in the Eighth Coast Guard District area of 
responsibility (AOR). This interim rule informs the public of regularly 
scheduled marine parades, regattas, and other recurring events that 
require additional safety measures through establishing a special local 
regulation. Through this interim rule the current list of recurring 
marine events requiring special local regulations is updated with 
revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take 
place in the Eighth Coast Guard District AOR. When these special local 
regulations are enforced, certain restrictions are placed on marine 
traffic in specified areas. Additionally, this one rulemaking project 
reduces administrative costs involved in producing a separate rule for 
each individual recurring event and serves to provide notice of the 
known recurring events requiring a special local regulation throughout 
the year.

DATES: This rule is effective April 22, 2014. Comments and related 
material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before May 22, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Documents mentioned in this preamble are part of Docket 
Number USCG-2013-1061. To view documents mentioned in this preamble as

B. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard is issuing this interim final rule without prior 
notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 
4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This 
provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and 
opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those 
procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest.'' Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
with respect to this rule. This interim rule is effective upon 
publication without prior notice through publication in the Federal 
Register, but also invites comments regarding the updated list of 
events. The Coast Guard will address all comments accordingly, whether 
through response, additional revision to the regulation, or otherwise. 
Completing the full NPRM process would unnecessarily delay the 
effective dates for the events listed to occur in April and May of 
2014. This interim rule, prepared to provide the most up to date list 
of recurring marine events and special local regulations, provides 
ample notice for all listed events occurring after May. Additionally, 
these recurring events are noticed to the public through local avenues 
and planned on by the local communities.
    The current list of annual and recurring marine events and special 
local regulations occurring in the Eighth Coast Guard District AOR is 
published under 33 CFR part 100.801. That list was last updated May 16, 
2012 through a previous rulemaking, [77 FR 2876] and received no 
adverse comments. Like this interim rule, the May 2012 update added to, 
removed from, and amended 33 CFR 100.801 to create a comprehensive list 
of recurring marine events requiring special local regulations. In 
addition to amending and updating the current list, this interim rule 
provides additional clarity by separating the events according to each 
Coast Guard Sector within the Eighth District.
    For the same reasons, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard 
finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 
30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Providing a 30-day 
notice would unnecessarily delay the effective dates for the events 
listed to occur in April and May of 2014, which are also noticed to the 
public through local avenues and are planned on by the local 
communities.

C. Basis and Purpose

    The basis for this interim rule is found in 33 U.S.C. 1233 which 
authorizes the Coast Guard to permit marine events and establish 
special local regulations related to those marine events. The Coast 
Guard is amending and updating the special local regulations under 33 
CFR part 100 to incorporate the numerous annual marine events held on 
or around navigable waters within the Eighth Coast Guard District. 
These events include marine parades, boat races, swim events, and other 
marine related events. Currently, there is a list of events located at 
33 CFR 100.801, establishing a special local regulation for each annual 
or recurring marine event in the Eighth Coast Guard District's area of 
responsibility. That list requires amending to provide new information 
on existing events and updating to include 42 new events expected to 
recur annually or biannually and remove 16 special local regulations 
that are not longer required. Issuing individual rulemakings for each 
new event, event requiring amendment, or removing an event creates 
unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This rule considerably 
reduces administrative overhead and provides the public with notice 
through publication in the Federal Register of the upcoming recurring 
marine events and their accompanying special local regulations.
    The Coast Guard encourages the public to participate in this 
rulemaking through the comment process so that any changes necessary 
can be identified and implemented in a timely and efficient manner.

D. Discussion of the Interim Rule

    Title 33 CFR part 100 contains regulations to provide effective 
control over regattas and marine parades conducted on U.S. navigable 
waters to ensure safety of life in the regattas or marine parade area. 
Section 100.801 provides the regulations applicable to events taking 
place in the Eighth Coast Guard District and also provides a table 
listing each event and special local regulation. This section requires 
amendment from time to time to update to properly reflect the annually 
recurring marine events and special local regulations in the Eighth 
Coast Guard District. This interim rule amends and updates Section 
100.801 replacing the current Table 1 with seven separate tables, one 
for each Sector within the Coast Guard's Eighth District as follows:

Table 1--Sector Ohio Valley
Table 2--Sector Upper Mississippi River
Table 3--Houston Galveston
Table 4--Corpus Christi
Table 5--New Orleans
Table 6--Sector Lower Mississippi River
Table 7--Sector Mobile

    Categorizing the events and special local regulations by Sector 
eliminates dual numbering within the District list and then again by 
Sector. Listing events and special local regulations by Sector also 
provides easier reference to a specific event or regulation.
    Additionally, this rule adds 42 new events with special local

Regulatory Analyses
    We developed this 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.
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 that 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 expects the economic impact of this rule to be so 
minimal that a full regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. The marine 
parades, regattas, and other marine events listed in this rule will 
restrict vessel traffic in certain areas of Eighth Coast Guard District 
waters at specified times; however, the effect of this regulation will 
not be significant because these events are short in duration and the 
special local regulations restricting and governing vessel movements 
are also limited in scope and short in duration. Additionally, the 
public is given advance notification through local forms of notice, the 
Federal Register, and/or Notices of Enforcement and thus will be able 
to plan operations around the events in advance. Deviations from each 
special local regulation may be requested through the COTP and each 
request will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
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.
    This rule may affect the following entities, some of which might be 
small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit 
the regulated areas during the marine events and periods of 
enforcement. The special local regulations will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the 
following reasons. These regulations are limited in scope and will be 
in effect for short periods of times. Before each enforcement period, 
the Coast Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories widely available to 
waterway users. Deviations from each special local regulation may be 
requested through the COTP and each request will be considered on a 
case-by-case basis.
    Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that 
this interim final rule will not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities.
Assistance for Small Entities
    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we offer to assist small 
entities in understanding the rule so that they can better evaluate its 
effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. 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 businesses. 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.
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).
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.
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 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.
Taking of Private Property
    This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.
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.
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.
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.
Energy Effects
    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under Executive Order 13211.
Technical Standards
    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use

[[Page 22387]]

voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the 
agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, 
with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent 
with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus 
standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, 
performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; 
and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted 
by voluntary consensus standards bodies.
    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.
Environment
    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 0023.1 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 which do not 
individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human 
environment. This rule is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2, 
figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h) of the Instruction because it involves 
establishment of special local regulations related to marine event 
permits for marine parades, regattas, and other marine events. An 
Environmental analysis and a categorical exclusion determination are 
not required for these regulations because the environmental review was 
performed during each marine event permit review process.
