SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Table of Acronyms APA Administrative Procedures Act BNM Broadcast Notice to Mariners COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register LNM Local Notice to Mariners MM Mile Marker NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary 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 E:\FR\FM\25APR1.SGM 25APR1 22872 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 80 / Friday, April 25, 2014 / Rules and Regulations WREIER-AVILES on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. Publishing an NPRM for this temporary rule is unnecessary as the public is already aware of this event through a current regulation, and this temporary rule changes the event from the third weekend of April to the fourth weekend of April. The current permanent safety zone for this event is under 33 CFR 165.801, Table 1, no. 12. However, that regulation only covers the third weekend in April. Based on future scheduling for this annual event, the Coast Guard has coordinated with the event sponsor to list the dates in the CFR as the third or fourth weekend in April. This date change is included in a project to update the list of recurring safety zones under 33 CFR 165.801, accounting for this event and other changes, however that rulemaking will not be published in time for this event. Completing the NPRM process for this event is also contrary to the public interest since immediate action is necessary to ensure the public is protected from the hazards associated with a fireworks display over and on the Ohio River during the event. Additionally, this event has been advertised to and planned for by the local community and delaying or forgoing a safety zone may interfere with contractual obligations. 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 30 days notice would be contrary to public interest because immediate action is needed to protect life and property from the hazards associated with an air show and fireworks display over the waterway. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 33 U.S.C. 1231, 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define safety zones. The Henderson Breakfast Lions Club Tri Fest event, including a fireworks display over and on the Ohio River, will take place on April 25, 2014. Due to the possible hazards associated with this event, the COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a safety zone for all waters of the Ohio River beginning at mile VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:58 Apr 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 marker 803.5 and ending at mile marker 804.5. This safety zone is necessary to provide safety for the public and marine traffic that will be in the area, including the recreational boaters and spectators attending the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club Tri Fest event on the Ohio River. A permanent safety zone for this event is currently published under 33 CFR 165.801, as referenced above. This temporary rule is necessary to move the event from the third weekend of April to the fourth weekend of April. C. Discussion of the Temporary Final Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone for all vessel traffic on the Ohio River between mile 803.5 and mile 804.5, extending the entire width of the Ohio River. Transit into and through this area is prohibited effective from 9:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on April 25, 2014. Deviation from this safety zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the COTP Ohio Valley, or a designated representative. Deviation requests will be considered and reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The COTP Ohio Valley may be contacted by telephone at 1–502–779–5424 or can be reached by VHF–FM channel 16. The COTP Ohio Valley will inform the public through broadcast notices to mariners (BNM) of the enforcement period for the safety zone as well as any changes in the planned schedule. D. 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. 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. This rule establishes a temporary safety zone, effective from 9:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on April 25, 2014, for vessels on all waters of the Ohio River from mile 803.5 to mile 804.5. Notifications of enforcement times will be communicated to the marine community via BNM and through local notice to mariners (LNM). The impacts on navigation will be limited to PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 protecting persons and property from the potential hazards associated with the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club Tri Fest fireworks. 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 Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the Ohio River, from 9:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on April 25, 2014. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities due to its limited scope and short duration. Additionally, requests to deviate from the rule will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Notifications to the marine community will be made through BNM, LNM, and communications with local waterway users. Notices of changes to the safety zone and effective times will also be made. 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.

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 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 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. WREIER-AVILES on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Apr 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 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 is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. This rule involves establishing a temporary safety zone to provide safety for the recreational boaters that will be spectators at the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club Tri Fest event.

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary 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

[[Page 22872]]

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.
    Publishing an NPRM for this temporary rule is unnecessary as the 
public is already aware of this event through a current regulation, and 
this temporary rule changes the event from the third weekend of April 
to the fourth weekend of April. The current permanent safety zone for 
this event is under 33 CFR 165.801, Table 1, no. 12. However, that 
regulation only covers the third weekend in April. Based on future 
scheduling for this annual event, the Coast Guard has coordinated with 
the event sponsor to list the dates in the CFR as the third or fourth 
weekend in April. This date change is included in a project to update 
the list of recurring safety zones under 33 CFR 165.801, accounting for 
this event and other changes, however that rulemaking will not be 
published in time for this event.
    Completing the NPRM process for this event is also contrary to the 
public interest since immediate action is necessary to ensure the 
public is protected from the hazards associated with a fireworks 
display over and on the Ohio River during the event. Additionally, this 
event has been advertised to and planned for by the local community and 
delaying or forgoing a safety zone may interfere with contractual 
obligations.
    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 30 days 
notice would be contrary to public interest because immediate action is 
needed to protect life and property from the hazards associated with an 
air show and fireworks display over the waterway.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 33 
U.S.C. 1231, 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 
CFR 1.05-1, 6.04-1, 6.04-6, and 160.5; Public Law 107-295, 116 Stat. 
2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which 
collectively authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define safety 
zones.
    The Henderson Breakfast Lions Club Tri Fest event, including a 
fireworks display over and on the Ohio River, will take place on April 
25, 2014. Due to the possible hazards associated with this event, the 
COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a safety zone for all waters of the 
Ohio River beginning at mile marker 803.5 and ending at mile marker 
804.5. This safety zone is necessary to provide safety for the public 
and marine traffic that will be in the area, including the recreational 
boaters and spectators attending the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club Tri 
Fest event on the Ohio River.
    A permanent safety zone for this event is currently published under 
33 CFR 165.801, as referenced above. This temporary rule is necessary 
to move the event from the third weekend of April to the fourth weekend 
of April.

C. Discussion of the Temporary Final Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone for all vessel 
traffic on the Ohio River between mile 803.5 and mile 804.5, extending 
the entire width of the Ohio River. Transit into and through this area 
is prohibited effective from 9:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on April 25, 2014. 
Deviation from this safety zone is prohibited unless specifically 
authorized by the COTP Ohio Valley, or a designated representative. 
Deviation requests will be considered and reviewed on a case-by-case 
basis. The COTP Ohio Valley may be contacted by telephone at 1-502-779-
5424 or can be reached by VHF-FM channel 16. The COTP Ohio Valley will 
inform the public through broadcast notices to mariners (BNM) of the 
enforcement period for the safety zone as well as any changes in the 
planned schedule.

D. 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.

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. This rule establishes a 
temporary safety zone, effective from 9:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on April 
25, 2014, for vessels on all waters of the Ohio River from mile 803.5 
to mile 804.5. Notifications of enforcement times will be communicated 
to the marine community via BNM and through local notice to mariners 
(LNM). The impacts on navigation will be limited to protecting persons 
and property from the potential hazards associated with the Henderson 
Breakfast Lions Club Tri Fest fireworks.

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 Coast Guard 
certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.
    This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be 
small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit 
the Ohio River, from 9:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on April 25, 2014. This 
safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities due to its limited scope and short 
duration. Additionally, requests to deviate from the rule will be 
considered on a case-by-case basis. Notifications to the marine 
community will be made through BNM, LNM, and communications with local 
waterway users. Notices of changes to the safety zone and effective 
times will also be made.

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 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 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.

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.

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 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 is categorically excluded from further review 
under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. This 
rule involves establishing a temporary safety zone to provide safety 
for the recreational boaters that will be spectators at the Henderson 
Breakfast Lions Club Tri Fest event.
    An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.
