Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 44286 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 147 / Thursday, July 31, 2014 / Rules and Regulations to identify the person as a material advisor with respect to the reportable transaction. For instance, this factor will weigh strongly in favor of rescission if the material advisor files the Form 8918 (or successor form) prior to the date the IRS contacts the material advisor concerning the reportable transaction. However, this factor will not weigh in favor of rescission if the facts and circumstances indicate that the material advisor delayed filing the Form 8918 (or successor form) until after a taxpayer files a Form 8886 (or successor form) identifying the material advisor with respect to the reportable transaction in question. (ii) The material advisor’s failure to disclose the reportable transaction properly was due to an unintentional mistake of fact that existed despite the material advisor’s reasonable attempts to ascertain the correct facts with respect to the transaction. (iii) The material advisor has an established history of properly disclosing other reportable transactions and complying with other tax laws, including compliance with any requests made by the IRS under section 6112, if applicable. (iv) The material advisor demonstrates that the failure to include on any return or statement any information required to be disclosed under section 6111 arose from events beyond the material advisor’s control. (v) The material advisor cooperates with the IRS by providing timely information with respect to the transaction at issue that the Commissioner (or the Commissioner’s delegate) may request in consideration of the rescission request. In considering whether a material advisor cooperates with the IRS, the Commissioner (or the Commissioner’s delegate) will take into account whether the material advisor meets the deadlines described in guidance published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin for complying with requests for additional information. (vi) Assessment of the penalty weighs against equity and good conscience, including whether the material advisor demonstrates that there was reasonable cause for, and the material advisor acted in good faith with respect to, the failure to timely file or to include on any return any information required to be disclosed under section 6111. An important factor in determining reasonable cause and good faith is the extent of the material advisor’s efforts to determine whether there was a requirement to file the return required under section 6111. The presence of reasonable cause, however, will not necessarily be determinative of whether to grant rescission. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:37 Jul 30, 2014 Jkt 232001 (4) Absence of favorable factors weighs against rescission. The absence of facts establishing the factors described in paragraph (e)(3) of this section weighs against granting rescission. The presence or absence of any one of these factors, however, will not necessarily be determinative of whether to grant rescission; rather the determination will be made in consideration of all of the factors and any other facts and circumstances. (5) Factors not considered. In determining whether to grant rescission, the Commissioner (or the Commissioner’s delegate) will not consider doubt as to collectability of, or liability for, the penalties (except that the Commissioner (or the Commissioner’s delegate) may consider doubt as to liability to the extent it is a factor in the determination of reasonable cause and good faith). (f) Effective/applicability date. The rules of this section apply to returns the due date for which is after July 31, 2014. § 301.6707–1T [Removed] Par. 3.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking § Section Symbol A. Regulatory History and Information On November 13, 2013, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled, ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, Treasure Island, FL’’ in the Federal Register (78 FR 67999). We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. B. Basis and Purpose The Treasure Island Causeway Bridge crosses the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway at mile 119.0, Treasure Island, Pinellas County, Florida. This change would reduce the vehicle traffic back-ups caused by the opening of the bridge while providing for the reasonable needs of navigation. The Treasure Island Bridge is a double-leaf bascule bridge that provides a vertical clearance of 21 feet in the closed position. The City of Treasure Island requested a change to the Treasure Island Causeway Bridge regulation due to an increase in vehicle traffic in this area. Based on the bridge logs, this bridge opens on average less than twice an hour on signal. Fewer scheduled openings at regular intervals between 7 E:\FR\FM\31JYR1.SGM 31JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 147 / Thursday, July 31, 2014 / Rules and Regulations a.m. and 7 p.m. would reduce the vehicle traffic back-ups caused by the opening of the bridge. C. Discussion of Comments and Changes The Coast Guard provided a comment period of 90 days and no comments were received. No changes have been made to the proposed rule. D. Discussion of Final Rule The current operating regulation governing the Treasure Island Causeway Bridge at 33 CFR 117.267(g) was for the old bridge which required the bridge to open four times per hour on the quarters between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and to open on signal if at least ten minutes advance notice was given between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. However, since the old bridge was replaced, the new bridge has been operating under 33 CFR 117.5 which requires the bride to open on signal. This final rule allows the bridge to open three times an hour during the week and twice an hour on the weekends which will reduce vehicle traffic congestion through this area by requiring less frequent openings. The Coast Guard does not anticipate longer bridge opening periods due to an accumulation of vessels, since the bridge currently opens less than twice an hour on average. E. 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. This action will have a minor impact on vessels transiting the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in the vicinity of Treasure Island, Florida as vessels will still be able to transit the bridge on specific intervals and this action will still meet the reasonable needs of navigation. This action is designed to improve vehicle traffic flow in downtown Treasure Island. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:37 Jul 30, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 received no comments from the Small Business Administration on this rule. 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 action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: This bridge generally does not open but two to three times an hour on a regular basis. Placing a regulation on this bridge, reducing these openings, will not unreasonably disrupt vessels transiting the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in this area. 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 aggregate, or by the private sector of PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 44287 $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 E:\FR\FM\31JYR1.SGM 31JYR1 44288 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 147 / Thursday, July 31, 2014 / Rules and Regulations significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves changing the open on demand bridge operating schedule to three times an hour Monday through Friday and twice an hour on Saturday, Sunday and Federal holidays and will meet the reasonable needs of navigation. 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.

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 an 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. The Coast Guard was made aware of the necessary Bayou Blue Pontoon Bridge repairs on May 6, 2014. The Coast Guard reviewed the details for the necessary bridge repairs and determined that additional safety measures are necessary during these repairs to maintain safety of navigation. Completing the full NPRM process would be contrary to public interest as it would delay the immediate action needed to protect the general public, vessel and tows from potential hazards associated with the repairs of the Bayou Blue Pontoon Bridge, Mile Marker 49.8, Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW), West of the Harvey Locks (WHL). Additionally, completing the NPRM process is impracticable and it would unnecessarily delay the bridge repairs. 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. Publishing a NPRM and delaying its effective date would be contrary to public interest since immediate action is needed to protect the general public, vessel and tows from hazards associated with the repairs of the Bayou Blue Pontoon Bridge, Mile Marker 49.8, GIWW, WHL. B. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard received notice on May 6, 2014, that the construction and repair work on the Bayou Blue, LA State Route 316, Pontoon Bridge, Mile Marker 49.8, GIWW, WHL, to repair the bridge to better serve the maritime commerce will continue through mid 2014. To protect the general public, vessels and tows from destruction, loss or injury due to the hazards associated with these construction operations in and around the waterways, the Coast Guard is establishing this temporary final safety zone which will continue through Aug. 10, 2014.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
Sec.  Section Symbol

A. Regulatory History and Information

    On November 13, 2013, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled, ``Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Gulf Intracoastal 
Waterway, Treasure Island, FL'' in the Federal Register (78 FR 67999). 
We received no comments on the proposed rule. No public meeting was 
requested, and none was held.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The Treasure Island Causeway Bridge crosses the Gulf Intracoastal 
Waterway at mile 119.0, Treasure Island, Pinellas County, Florida. This 
change would reduce the vehicle traffic back-ups caused by the opening 
of the bridge while providing for the reasonable needs of navigation.
    The Treasure Island Bridge is a double-leaf bascule bridge that 
provides a vertical clearance of 21 feet in the closed position.
    The City of Treasure Island requested a change to the Treasure 
Island Causeway Bridge regulation due to an increase in vehicle traffic 
in this area. Based on the bridge logs, this bridge opens on average 
less than twice an hour on signal. Fewer scheduled openings at regular 
intervals between 7

[[Page 44287]]

a.m. and 7 p.m. would reduce the vehicle traffic back-ups caused by the 
opening of the bridge.

C. Discussion of Comments and Changes

    The Coast Guard provided a comment period of 90 days and no 
comments were received. No changes have been made to the proposed rule.

D. Discussion of Final Rule

    The current operating regulation governing the Treasure Island 
Causeway Bridge at 33 CFR 117.267(g) was for the old bridge which 
required the bridge to open four times per hour on the quarters between 
7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and to open on signal if at least ten minutes advance 
notice was given between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. However, since the old 
bridge was replaced, the new bridge has been operating under 33 CFR 
117.5 which requires the bride to open on signal. This final rule 
allows the bridge to open three times an hour during the week and twice 
an hour on the weekends which will reduce vehicle traffic congestion 
through this area by requiring less frequent openings. The Coast Guard 
does not anticipate longer bridge opening periods due to an 
accumulation of vessels, since the bridge currently opens less than 
twice an hour on average.

E. 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.
    This action will have a minor impact on vessels transiting the Gulf 
Intracoastal Waterway in the vicinity of Treasure Island, Florida as 
vessels will still be able to transit the bridge on specific intervals 
and this action will still meet the reasonable needs of navigation. 
This action is designed to improve vehicle traffic flow in downtown 
Treasure Island.

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 received no comments from the Small Business 
Administration on this rule. 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 action will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: This 
bridge generally does not open but two to three times an hour on a 
regular basis. Placing a regulation on this bridge, reducing these 
openings, will not unreasonably disrupt vessels transiting the Gulf 
Intracoastal Waterway in this area.

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 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

[[Page 44288]]

significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves 
changing the open on demand bridge operating schedule to three times an 
hour Monday through Friday and twice an hour on Saturday, Sunday and 
Federal holidays and will meet the reasonable needs of navigation. 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.
