Notice of deviation from drawbridge regulation. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the California Department of Transportation, Hwy 84 drawbridge across Miner Slough, mile 5.5, near Rio Vista, CA. The deviation is necessary to allow the bridge owner to repair the damaged deck system of the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position with a 7 foot reduction in vertical clearance during the deviation period. DATES: This deviation is effective without actual notice from May 1, 2014 through 6 p.m. on July 21, 2014. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from 7 a.m. on April 23, 2014, until May 1, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The California Department of Transportation has requested a temporary change to the operation of the Hwy 84 drawbridge, mile 5.5, over Miner Slough near Rio Vista, CA. The drawbridge navigation span ordinarily provides 17 feet vertical clearance above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. Containment installed below low steel of the bridge reduces vertical clearance by 7 feet and will be lighted at night with red lights. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.173 Miner Slough, the draw of the California Department of Transportation highway bridge, mile 5.5 between the northerly end of Ryer Island and Holland Tract, shall open on signal if at least 12 hours notice is given to the drawtender at the Rio Vista bridge across the Sacramento River, mile 12.8. Navigation on the waterway is commercial and recreational. The drawspan will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position from 7 a.m. on April 23, 2014 to 6 p.m. on July 21, 2014, to allow Caltrans to repair the damaged deck system of the bridge. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position with a 7 foot reduction in vertical clearance due to containment installed below the bridge, may do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies during this deviation. The Sacramento Deep Water Channel and Steamboat Slough can be used as PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 * * alternate routes for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position, and with containment installed. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule and all encroachments in the navigational openings shall be removed, immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: April 21, 2014. D.H. Sulouff, District Bridge Chief, Eleventh Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this 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), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because the First Street Bridge, that once required draw operations in 33 CFR 117.718(b), was removed and converted to a fixed bridge in July 2010. Therefore, the regulation is no longer applicable and shall be removed from publication. It is unnecessary to publish an NPRM because this regulatory action does not purport to place any restrictions on mariners but rather removes a restriction that has no further use or value. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective in less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. The bridge has been a fixed bridge for four years and this rule merely requires an administrative change to the Federal Register, in order to omit a regulatory requirement that is no longer applicable or necessary. The modification has already taken place and the removal of the regulation will not affect mariners currently operating VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:24 Apr 30, 2014 Jkt 232001 on this waterway. Therefore, a delayed effective date is unnecessary. change and does not affect the way vessels operate on the waterway. B. Basis and Purpose The First Street Bridge across the Elizabeth River at mile 0.4, was converted to a fixed bridge in July 2010. It has come to the attention of the Coast Guard that the governing regulation for this drawbridge was never removed subsequent to the conversion to a fixed bridge. The elimination of this drawbridge necessitates the removal of the drawbridge operation regulation, 33 CFR 117.718(b), pertaining to the former drawbridge. The purpose of this rule is to remove the paragraph of 33 CFR 117.718(b) that refers to the First Street Bridge at mile 0.4, from the Code of Federal Regulations since it governs a bridge that is no longer able to be opened. 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 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 have no effect on small entities since this drawbridge has been converted to a fixed bridge and the regulation governing draw operations for this bridge is no longer applicable. There is no new restriction or regulation being imposed by this rule; therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. C. Discussion of Rule The Coast Guard is changing the regulation in 33 CFR 117.718(b) by removing restrictions and the regulatory burden related to the draw operations for this bridge that is no longer a drawbridge. The change removes the paragraph of the regulation governing the First Street Bridge since the bridge has been converted to a fixed bridge. This Final Rule seeks to update the Code of Federal Regulations by removing language that governs the operation of the First Street Bridge, which in fact is no longer is a drawbridge. This change does not affect waterway or land traffic. This change does not affect nor does it alter the operating schedules in 33 CFR 117.718 that govern the remaining active drawbridges on the Elizabeth River. 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 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 does not consider this rule to be ‘‘significant’’ under that Order because it is an administrative PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 3. 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). 4. 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 it does not have implications for federalism. 5. 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. 6. 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 E:\FR\FM\01MYR1.SGM 01MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 84 / Thursday, May 1, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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. 7. 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. 8. 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. 9. 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 might disproportionately affect children. 10. 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. 11. Energy Effects individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves the drawbridge operation for the First Street Bridge which has been converted to a fixed bridge. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (32) (e), of the Instruction. Under figure 2–1, paragraph (32) (e), of the Instruction, an environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for this rule.

Summary of First Report and Order 1. In 2013, the Commission issued the Notice of Proposed Rule Making, 78 FR 21320, April 10, 2013, that initiated this proceeding, with the goal of supporting the growing needs of businesses and consumers for fixed and mobile broadband communications using Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U–NII) devices in the 5.15–5.35 GHz and 5.47–5.85 GHz bands. At the same time, it recognized the need to modify its rules to better ensure that these devices do not cause harmful interference to authorized Federal and non-Federal users in these bands. U–NII devices are unlicensed intentional radiators, which use wideband digital modulation techniques to provide a wide array of high-data-rate mobile and fixed communications used by individuals, businesses, and institutions, particularly for wireless E:\FR\FM\01MYR1.SGM 01MYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard is issuing this 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), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
with respect to this rule because the First Street Bridge, that once 
required draw operations in 33 CFR 117.718(b), was removed and 
converted to a fixed bridge in July 2010. Therefore, the regulation is 
no longer applicable and shall be removed from publication. It is 
unnecessary to publish an NPRM because this regulatory action does not 
purport to place any restrictions on mariners but rather removes a 
restriction that has no further use or value.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause 
exists for making this rule effective in less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register. The bridge has been a fixed bridge 
for four years and this rule merely requires an administrative change 
to the Federal Register, in order to omit a regulatory requirement that 
is no longer applicable or necessary. The modification has already 
taken place and the removal of the regulation will not affect mariners 
currently operating on this waterway. Therefore, a delayed effective 
date is unnecessary.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The First Street Bridge across the Elizabeth River at mile 0.4, was 
converted to a fixed bridge in July 2010. It has come to the attention 
of the Coast Guard that the governing regulation for this drawbridge 
was never removed subsequent to the conversion to a fixed bridge. The 
elimination of this drawbridge necessitates the removal of the 
drawbridge operation regulation, 33 CFR 117.718(b), pertaining to the 
former drawbridge.
    The purpose of this rule is to remove the paragraph of 33 CFR 
117.718(b) that refers to the First Street Bridge at mile 0.4, from the 
Code of Federal Regulations since it governs a bridge that is no longer 
able to be opened.

C. Discussion of Rule

    The Coast Guard is changing the regulation in 33 CFR 117.718(b) by 
removing restrictions and the regulatory burden related to the draw 
operations for this bridge that is no longer a drawbridge. The change 
removes the paragraph of the regulation governing the First Street 
Bridge since the bridge has been converted to a fixed bridge. This 
Final Rule seeks to update the Code of Federal Regulations by removing 
language that governs the operation of the First Street Bridge, which 
in fact is no longer is a drawbridge. This change does not affect 
waterway or land traffic. This change does not affect nor does it alter 
the operating schedules in 33 CFR 117.718 that govern the remaining 
active drawbridges on the Elizabeth River.

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 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 does not consider this rule to be ``significant'' 
under that Order because it is an administrative change and does not 
affect the way vessels operate on the waterway.

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 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 have no effect on small entities since this 
drawbridge has been converted to a fixed bridge and the regulation 
governing draw operations for this bridge is no longer applicable. 
There is no new restriction or regulation being imposed by this rule; 
therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this 
final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities.

3. 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).

4. 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 it does not have implications for federalism.

5. 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.

6. 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

[[Page 24569]]

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.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. 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 might 
disproportionately affect children.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. Technical Standards

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

13. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guides 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 the drawbridge operation for the First 
Street Bridge which has been converted to a fixed bridge. This rule is 
categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph (32) (e), of the 
Instruction.
    Under figure 2-1, paragraph (32) (e), of the Instruction, an 
environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion 
determination are not required for this rule.
