SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information On February 7, 2014, a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) entitled, ‘‘Special Local Regulations; Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix; Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota, FL’’ was published in the Federal Register (see 79 FR 7408). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. The Annual Suncoast Offshore Challenge and Annual Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix in the Gulf of Mexico near Sarasota, Florida are governed by permanent regulations at 33 CFR 100.719 and 33 CFR 100.720, respectively. The marine events are normally held on the first Saturday and Sunday of July between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Event coordinators have decided to combine the two events to take place annually on the first Sunday of July between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Event coordinators are also reducing the length of the racecourse so that Big Sarasota Pass channel may remain open during the event. In recent years, areas north of New Pass have been subjected to shoaling. To ensure the safety of boaters, the Coast Guard will also close New Pass during the race because the north end of the course is close to the channel. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES2 B. 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. The purpose of the regulation is to consolidate the Annual Suncoast Offshore Challenge at 33 CFR 100.719 and Annual Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix 33 CFR 100.720 into a single regulation to provide safety of life on the navigable waters in the Captain of the Port Saint Petersburg Zone. C. Comments, Changes and the Final Rule There were no comments related to this event during the comment period and there was no request for a public meeting made during the comment period. This final rule is necessary to accommodate the rescheduling of the Annual Suncoast Offshore Challenge to the same date of the Annual Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix race, to modify the VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:29 Jul 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 regulated area to account for changes in the length of the racecourse, and to modify the passes for inbound and outbound traffic into Sarasota Bay. The final rule removes 33 CFR 100.719, the existing permanent regulation for the Annual Suncoast Offshore Challenge scheduled for the first Saturday in July. That event would be consolidated into existing 33 CFR 100.720, the Annual Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix race. The event listed in 33 CFR 100.719 is a oneday race event to be held on the already established Grand Prix race day, annually on the first Sunday of July. Under the existing special local regulations, New Pass is open to maritime traffic and Big Sarasota Pass is closed to traffic. Due to recent shoaling north of New Pass, this final rule closes New Pass and opens Big Sarasota Pass to inbound and outbound traffic. Additionally, the coordinates of the regulated area would be modified to reflect a reduced length in the racecourse. 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. D. Regulatory Analyses 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). 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 regulation is not a significant regulatory action because this change constitutes merging and modification of existing regulations. This rule may have some impact on the public, but these potential impacts will be minimized for the following reason: Big Sarasota Pass is within three miles of New Pass and would allow vessels to continue to enter and exit Sarasota Bay. 2. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered the impact of this rule on 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. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 3.

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 rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 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 would not result in such expenditure, E:\FR\FM\29JYR1.SGM 29JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 145 / Tuesday, July 29, 2014 / Rules and Regulations we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This 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.

(4) New Pass will be closed to all inbound and outbound vessel traffic at the COLREGS Demarcation Line. Vessels are allowed to utilize New Pass to access all areas inland of the Demarcation Line via Sarasota Bay. It may be opened at the discretion of the Patrol Commander. SUMMARY: This 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 rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. 13.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    On February 7, 2014, a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) 
entitled, ``Special Local Regulations; Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix; 
Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota, FL'' was published in the Federal Register 
(see 79 FR 7408). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No 
public meeting was requested, and none was held.
    The Annual Suncoast Offshore Challenge and Annual Suncoast Offshore 
Grand Prix in the Gulf of Mexico near Sarasota, Florida are governed by 
permanent regulations at 33 CFR 100.719 and 33 CFR 100.720, 
respectively. The marine events are normally held on the first Saturday 
and Sunday of July between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Event coordinators have 
decided to combine the two events to take place annually on the first 
Sunday of July between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Event coordinators are also 
reducing the length of the racecourse so that Big Sarasota Pass channel 
may remain open during the event. In recent years, areas north of New 
Pass have been subjected to shoaling. To ensure the safety of boaters, 
the Coast Guard will also close New Pass during the race because the 
north end of the course is close to the channel.

B. 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.
    The purpose of the regulation is to consolidate the Annual Suncoast 
Offshore Challenge at 33 CFR 100.719 and Annual Suncoast Offshore Grand 
Prix 33 CFR 100.720 into a single regulation to provide safety of life 
on the navigable waters in the Captain of the Port Saint Petersburg 
Zone.

C. Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    There were no comments related to this event during the comment 
period and there was no request for a public meeting made during the 
comment period.
    This final rule is necessary to accommodate the rescheduling of the 
Annual Suncoast Offshore Challenge to the same date of the Annual 
Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix race, to modify the regulated area to 
account for changes in the length of the racecourse, and to modify the 
passes for inbound and outbound traffic into Sarasota Bay. The final 
rule removes 33 CFR 100.719, the existing permanent regulation for the 
Annual Suncoast Offshore Challenge scheduled for the first Saturday in 
July. That event would be consolidated into existing 33 CFR 100.720, 
the Annual Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix race. The event listed in 33 
CFR 100.719 is a one-day race event to be held on the already 
established Grand Prix race day, annually on the first Sunday of July. 
Under the existing special local regulations, New Pass is open to 
maritime traffic and Big Sarasota Pass is closed to traffic. Due to 
recent shoaling north of New Pass, this final rule closes New Pass and 
opens Big Sarasota Pass to inbound and outbound traffic. Additionally, 
the coordinates of the regulated area would be modified to reflect a 
reduced length in the racecourse.

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 regulation is not a significant regulatory action because this 
change constitutes merging and modification of existing regulations. 
This rule may have some impact on the public, but these potential 
impacts will be minimized for the following reason: Big Sarasota Pass 
is within three miles of New Pass and would allow vessels to continue 
to enter and exit Sarasota Bay.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered the impact of this rule on 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.
    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 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 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 would not result 
in such expenditure,

[[Page 43935]]

we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

8. Taking of Private Property

    This 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 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 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 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 rule is not a ``significant energy action'' under Executive 
Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect

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 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 rule is categorically excluded 
from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the 
Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting 
this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are 
available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.
