Regulatory History and Information This rule involves an air show that will take place over the Patapsco River in Baltimore, Maryland on September 13, 2014 and September 14, 2014 and will attract thousands of spectators on the Patapsco River. This rule also involves a designated on-water spectator area associated with the air show. The current regulations under 33 CFR 100 address safety for reoccurring marine events. This marine event does not appear in the current regulations; however, as it is a regulation to provide effective control over regattas and marine parades on the navigable waters of the United States so as to insure safety of life in the regatta or marine parade area, this marine event therefore needs to be temporarily added. C. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish special local regulations: 33 U.S.C. 1233, and to establish safety zones: 33 U.S.C. 1231. The purpose of the rule is to provide for the safety of participants, spectators, and transiting vessels from the potential hazards associated with an air show, such as aircraft accidents, dangerous projectiles, hazardous materials spills and falling debris. This rule is necessary to ensure safety of life on navigable waters of the United States before, during and after the scheduled Baltimore Air Show event. D. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Star Spangled 200, Inc. is sponsoring the ‘‘Baltimore Air Show’’ on September 13, 2014 and September 14, 2014. The public event will consist of military and civilian aircraft VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 Jul 18, 2014 Jkt 232001 performing low-flying, high-speed precision maneuvers and aerial stunts over specified waters of the Patapsco River and navigable channels in Baltimore Harbor. In addition to the air show dates, military and civilian aircraft performing in the air show will conduct practice and demonstration maneuvers and stunts over specified waters of the Patapsco River and navigable channels in Baltimore Harbor on September 11, 2014 and September 12, 2014. A large spectator fleet is anticipated for the event, as part of the Star Spangled 200 activities. Through this regulation, the Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary regulated area. The proposed regulated area will encompass all waters of the Patapsco River, within an area bounded by a line connecting position latitude 39°16′00″ N, longitude 076°36′30″ W; thence to latitude 39°16′00″ N, longitude 076°33′00″ W; thence to latitude 39°14′30″ N, longitude 076°33′00″ W; thence to latitude 39°14′30″ N, longitude 076°36′30″ W; thence to the point of origin, located between Port Covington and Seagirt Marine Terminal at Baltimore, MD. Within the regulated area is a designated spectator area for commercial passenger vessels. The spectator area includes all waters of the Patapsco River, located between the northern boundary of the regulated area described in paragraph (a)(1) of this section at latitude 39°16′00″ N, thence southerly to the northern boundary of the safety zone represented by a line connecting position latitude 39°15′44″ N, longitude 076°35′55″ W; to position latitude 39°15′19″ N, longitude 076°33′25″ W, located adjacent to the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine at Baltimore, MD. This regulated area will be enforced from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day from September 11, 2014 through September 14, 2014. Through this regulation, the Coast Guard also proposes to establish a safety zone. The proposed safety zone encompasses the aerobatic show box, approximately 12,000 feet long and 3,000 feet wide, and is located within the regulated area. The temporary safety zone includes all waters of the Patapsco River, located within an area bounded by a line connecting position latitude 39°15′44″ N, longitude 076°35′56″ W; to latitude 39°15′19″ N, longitude 076°33′26″ W; thence to latitude 39°14′49″ N, longitude 076°33′35″ W; thence to latitude 39°15′15″ N, longitude 076°36′04″ W; thence to point of origin. Access to the safety zone will be restricted during the specified dates and times. Except for vessels authorized by the Captain of the Port or his PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 42255 designated representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the safety zone. U.S. Coast Guard vessels will be provided to enforce the safety zone. The Captain of the Port Baltimore will issue Broadcast Notices to Mariners to publicize the safety zone and notify the public of changes in the status of the zone. Such notices will continue until the event is complete. E. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed 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 proposed 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. The economic impact of this rule is not significant for the following reasons: The primary impact of these regulations will be on vessels wishing to transit the affected waterways during activities associated with the Baltimore Air Show beginning on September 11, 2014 and ending on September 14, 2014. Although these regulations prevent traffic from transiting a portion of the Patapsco River during this event, that restriction is limited in duration, affects only a limited area, and will be well publicized to allow mariners to make alternative plans for transiting the affected area. Moreover, the magnitude of the event itself will severely hamper or prevent transit of the waterway, even absent these regulations designed to ensure it is conducted in a safe and orderly fashion. 2. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered the impact of this proposed rule on small entities. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within E:\FR\FM\21JYP1.SGM 21JYP1 42256 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 139 / Monday, July 21, 2014 / Proposed Rules that portion of the Patapsco River encompassed within the special local regulations from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day on September 11, 2014, September 12, 2014, September 13, 2014, and September 14, 2014, and encompassed within the safety zone from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day on September 11, 2014, September 12, 2014, September 13, 2014, and September 14, 2014. For the reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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 proposed rule under that Order and determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism. 16:47 Jul 18, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 13. Technical Standards This proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. This proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments, because it would 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. 14. Environment We have analyzed this proposed 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 that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This proposed rule involves special local regulations issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine parade. This proposed rule addresses safety concerns immediately outside the aerobatic show box, including the required patrols of law enforcement and safety vessels, establishment of emergency egress routes, and designated spectator areas. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. Additionally, this proposed rule involves establishing a temporary safety zone for an aerobatic show box during an air show. The air show is scheduled over navigable waters of the United States and may have potential for negative impact on the safety or other interest of waterway users and near shore activities in the event area. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are 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 proposed rule. List of Subjects This proposed rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That 4. Collection of Information This proposed rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). VerDate Mar<15>2010 7.

Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub.

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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 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. 33 CFR Part 100 Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Waterways. 8. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 From Environmental Health Risks We have analyzed this proposed 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.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a revision to the Nevada state implementation plan that provides for the maintenance of the national ambient air quality standard for particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to a nominal ten micrometers (PM10) in Las Vegas Valley for the next ten years and to approve the related motor vehicle emissions budgets. Based in part on the proposed approval of the PM10 maintenance plan, EPA is also proposing to approve the State of Nevada’s request for redesignation of Las Vegas Valley to attainment for the PM10 standard. Consistent with the assumptions of the maintenance plan, EPA is proposing to approve revisions to certain local fugitive dust rules to ensure their continued applicability after redesignation of the area to attainment.

EPA finds that the Las Vegas Valley PM10 Maintenance Plan adequately demonstrates that the area will maintain the PM10 national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS or ‘‘standard’’) for 10 years beyond redesignation and includes sufficient contingency provisions to promptly correct any violation of the PM10 standard which occurs after redesignation and thereby meets the requirements for maintenance plans under CAA section 175A. EPA is also proposing to approve the motor vehicle emissions budgets (MVEBs) in the Las Vegas Valley PM10 Maintenance Plan because we find they meet the E:\FR\FM\21JYP1.SGM 21JYP1

B. Regulatory History and Information

    This rule involves an air show that will take place over the 
Patapsco River in Baltimore, Maryland on September 13, 2014 and 
September 14, 2014 and will attract thousands of spectators on the 
Patapsco River. This rule also involves a designated on-water spectator 
area associated with the air show. The current regulations under 33 CFR 
100 address safety for reoccurring marine events. This marine event 
does not appear in the current regulations; however, as it is a 
regulation to provide effective control over regattas and marine 
parades on the navigable waters of the United States so as to insure 
safety of life in the regatta or marine parade area, this marine event 
therefore needs to be temporarily added.

C. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard's authority to 
establish special local regulations: 33 U.S.C. 1233, and to establish 
safety zones: 33 U.S.C. 1231.
    The purpose of the rule is to provide for the safety of 
participants, spectators, and transiting vessels from the potential 
hazards associated with an air show, such as aircraft accidents, 
dangerous projectiles, hazardous materials spills and falling debris. 
This rule is necessary to ensure safety of life on navigable waters of 
the United States before, during and after the scheduled Baltimore Air 
Show event.

D. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Star Spangled 200, Inc. is sponsoring the ``Baltimore Air 
Show'' on September 13, 2014 and September 14, 2014. The public event 
will consist of military and civilian aircraft performing low-flying, 
high-speed precision maneuvers and aerial stunts over specified waters 
of the Patapsco River and navigable channels in Baltimore Harbor. In 
addition to the air show dates, military and civilian aircraft 
performing in the air show will conduct practice and demonstration 
maneuvers and stunts over specified waters of the Patapsco River and 
navigable channels in Baltimore Harbor on September 11, 2014 and 
September 12, 2014. A large spectator fleet is anticipated for the 
event, as part of the Star Spangled 200 activities.
    Through this regulation, the Coast Guard proposes to establish a 
temporary regulated area. The proposed regulated area will encompass 
all waters of the Patapsco River, within an area bounded by a line 
connecting position latitude 39[deg]16'00'' N, longitude 
076[deg]36'30'' W; thence to latitude 39[deg]16'00'' N, longitude 
076[deg]33'00'' W; thence to latitude 39[deg]14'30'' N, longitude 
076[deg]33'00'' W; thence to latitude 39[deg]14'30'' N, longitude 
076[deg]36'30'' W; thence to the point of origin, located between Port 
Covington and Seagirt Marine Terminal at Baltimore, MD. Within the 
regulated area is a designated spectator area for commercial passenger 
vessels. The spectator area includes all waters of the Patapsco River, 
located between the northern boundary of the regulated area described 
in paragraph (a)(1) of this section at latitude 39[deg]16'00'' N, 
thence southerly to the northern boundary of the safety zone 
represented by a line connecting position latitude 39[deg]15'44'' N, 
longitude 076[deg]35'55'' W; to position latitude 39[deg]15'19'' N, 
longitude 076[deg]33'25'' W, located adjacent to the Fort McHenry 
National Monument and Historic Shrine at Baltimore, MD. This regulated 
area will be enforced from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day from September 
11, 2014 through September 14, 2014.
    Through this regulation, the Coast Guard also proposes to establish 
a safety zone. The proposed safety zone encompasses the aerobatic show 
box, approximately 12,000 feet long and 3,000 feet wide, and is located 
within the regulated area. The temporary safety zone includes all 
waters of the Patapsco River, located within an area bounded by a line 
connecting position latitude 39[deg]15'44'' N, longitude 
076[deg]35'56'' W; to latitude 39[deg]15'19'' N, longitude 
076[deg]33'26'' W; thence to latitude 39[deg]14'49'' N, longitude 
076[deg]33'35'' W; thence to latitude 39[deg]15'15'' N, longitude 
076[deg]36'04'' W; thence to point of origin. Access to the safety zone 
will be restricted during the specified dates and times. Except for 
vessels authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated 
representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the safety 
zone. U.S. Coast Guard vessels will be provided to enforce the safety 
zone. The Captain of the Port Baltimore will issue Broadcast Notices to 
Mariners to publicize the safety zone and notify the public of changes 
in the status of the zone. Such notices will continue until the event 
is complete.

E. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed 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 proposed 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.
    The economic impact of this rule is not significant for the 
following reasons: The primary impact of these regulations will be on 
vessels wishing to transit the affected waterways during activities 
associated with the Baltimore Air Show beginning on September 11, 2014 
and ending on September 14, 2014. Although these regulations prevent 
traffic from transiting a portion of the Patapsco River during this 
event, that restriction is limited in duration, affects only a limited 
area, and will be well publicized to allow mariners to make alternative 
plans for transiting the affected area. Moreover, the magnitude of the 
event itself will severely hamper or prevent transit of the waterway, 
even absent these regulations designed to ensure it is conducted in a 
safe and orderly fashion.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered the impact of this proposed rule on small entities. The 
Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this proposed rule 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities.
    This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be 
small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, 
transit through, anchor in, or remain within

[[Page 42256]]

that portion of the Patapsco River encompassed within the special local 
regulations from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day on September 11, 2014, 
September 12, 2014, September 13, 2014, and September 14, 2014, and 
encompassed within the safety zone from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day 
on September 11, 2014, September 12, 2014, September 13, 2014, and 
September 14, 2014. For the reasons discussed in the Regulatory 
Planning and Review section above, this rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.

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 proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 
entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any 
policy or action of the Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

    This proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 From Environmental Health Risks

    We have analyzed this proposed 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 proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal 
Governments, because it would 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 proposed rule 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we 
did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

14. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed 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 that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment.
    This proposed rule involves special local regulations issued in 
conjunction with a regatta or marine parade. This proposed rule 
addresses safety concerns immediately outside the aerobatic show box, 
including the required patrols of law enforcement and safety vessels, 
establishment of emergency egress routes, and designated spectator 
areas. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under 
paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. A 
preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this 
determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available 
in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.
    Additionally, this proposed rule involves establishing a temporary 
safety zone for an aerobatic show box during an air show. The air show 
is scheduled over navigable waters of the United States and may have 
potential for negative impact on the safety or other interest of 
waterway users and near shore activities in the event area. This rule 
is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of 
Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental 
analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical 
Exclusion Determination are 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 proposed rule.
