SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Table of Acronyms Coast Guard DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 33 CFR Part 100 A. Regulatory History and Information [Docket Number USCG–2014–0701] RIN 1625–AA08 Special Local Regulations for Marine Events, Sunset Lake; Wildwood Crest, NJ Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is temporarily changing the enforcement date of the special local regulation for the recurring powerboat race known as the Sunset Lake Hydrofest, held in the waters of the Sunset Lake, adjacent to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. The change of enforcement date for the special local regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event. This action will restrict vessel traffic in the waters of Sunset Lake adjacent to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey, during the event. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:08 Aug 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 The regulation for this marine event may be found at 33 CFR 100.501, Table to § 100.501, section (a), line ‘‘9’’. The Coast Guard is issuing this final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment, and to take effect in less than 30 days, pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b) and (d)(3)), which authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment, and to take effect in less than 30 days, when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ The Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule immediate action is needed to minimize potential danger to the public during the event. The potential dangers posed by power boat race make this change to the special local regulation PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 48065 necessary to provide for the safety of participants, spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event area. For the safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to have this regulation in effect during the event. The Coast Guard will issue broadcast notice to mariners to advise vessel operators of navigational restrictions. On scene Coast Guard and local law enforcement vessels will also provide actual notice to mariners. For the same reasons, the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis and authorities for this rulemaking establishing a special local regulation are found in 33 U.S.C. 1233, which authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define special local regulations. The Captain of the Port Delaware Bay is establishing a special local regulation for the waters of Sunset Lake, near Wildwood Crest, NJ, to protect event participants, spectators and transiting vessels. Entry into this area is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Delaware Bay or designated representative. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The Sunset Lake Hydrofest Association sponsors an annual power boat race usually held on the last Friday, Saturday and Sunday in September in the waters of Sunset Lake adjacent to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. The regulation listing annual marine events within the Fifth Coast Guard District and special local regulation locations is 33 CFR 100.501. The Table to § 100.501 identifies special local regulations by COTP zone, with the COTP Delaware Bay zone listed in section ‘‘(a.)’’ of the Table. The Table to § 100.501, at section (a.) event Number ‘‘9’’, describes the enforcement date and regulated location for this marine event. The date listed in the Table has the marine event on the last Friday, Saturday and Sunday in September. However, this temporary rule changes the marine event date to September 13, 2014 and September 14, 2014, to reflect the actual date of the event. A fleet of spectator vessels is anticipated to gather nearby to view the marine event. Due to the need for vessel control during the marine event vessel traffic will be temporarily restricted to provide for the safety of participants, spectators and transiting vessels. Under provisions of 33 CFR 100.501, during the enforcement period, vessels may not enter the regulated area unless they E:\FR\FM\15AUR1.SGM 15AUR1 48066 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 158 / Friday, August 15, 2014 / Rules and Regulations receive permission from the Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The Coast Guard will temporarily suspend the regulation listed in Table to § 100.501, section (a) event Number ‘‘9’’, and insert this temporary regulation at Table to § 100.501, at section (a.) as event Number ‘‘18’’, in order to reflect that the safety zone will be effective and enforced from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on September 13, 2014 and September 14, 2014. This change is needed to accommodate the sponsor’s event plan. No other portion of the Table to § 100.501 or other provisions in § 100.501 shall be affected by this regulation. The regulated area of this special local regulation includes All waters of Sunset Lake, New Jersey, from shoreline to shoreline, south of latitude 38°58′32″ N. During the period of the safety zone, all persons and vessels will be prohibited from entering, transiting, mooring, or remaining within the zone, unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Delaware Bay, or her designated representative. Those persons authorized to transit through the safety zone shall abide by and follow all directions provided by the Captain of the Port Delaware Bay, or her designated representative, in order to ensure they are not disrupting this marine event. U.S. Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay will notify the public by broadcast notice to mariners at least one hour prior to the times of enforcement. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES 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 Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. Although this regulation will restrict access to the regulated area, the effect of this rule will not be significant because: (i) The Coast Guard will make extensive notification of the Safety Zone to the maritime public via maritime advisories so mariners can alter their plans accordingly; (ii) vessels may still be permitted to transit through the VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:08 Aug 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 safety zone with the permission of the Captain of the Port on a case-by-case basis; and (iii) this rule will be enforced for only the duration of the air show. 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 affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to anchor or transit along a portion of the Sunset Lake adjacent to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on September 13, 2014 and September 14, 2014, unless cancelled earlier by the Captain of the Port once all operations are completed. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reason: vessel traffic will be allowed to pass through the zone with permission of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port Delaware Bay or her designated representative and zone is limited in size and duration. Sector Delaware Bay will issue maritime advisories widely available to users of the Delaware Bay and River. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 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 PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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. E:\FR\FM\15AUR1.SGM 15AUR1 48067 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 158 / Friday, August 15, 2014 / Rules and Regulations consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 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 No. Date 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 involves implementation of regulations within 33 CFR Part 100, applicable to special local regulations on the navigable waterways. This zone will temporarily restrict vessel traffic from transiting the waters of Sunset Lake adjacent to Wildwood Crest, NJ, in order to protect the safety of life and property on the waters for the duration of the power boat race. 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 Event docket where indicated under We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The regulation for this marine event may be found at 33 CFR 
100.501, Table to Sec.  100.501, section (a), line ``9''.
    The Coast Guard is issuing this final rule without prior notice and 
opportunity to comment, and to take effect in less than 30 days, 
pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative 
Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b) and (d)(3)), which authorizes an 
agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment, 
and to take effect in less than 30 days, when the agency for good cause 
finds that those procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or 
contrary to the public interest.'' The Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
with respect to this rule immediate action is needed to minimize 
potential danger to the public during the event. The potential dangers 
posed by power boat race make this change to the special local 
regulation necessary to provide for the safety of participants, 
spectator craft, and other vessels transiting the event area. For the 
safety concerns noted, it is in the public interest to have this 
regulation in effect during the event. The Coast Guard will issue 
broadcast notice to mariners to advise vessel operators of navigational 
restrictions. On scene Coast Guard and local law enforcement vessels 
will also provide actual notice to mariners. For the same reasons, the 
Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective 
less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis and authorities for this rulemaking establishing a 
special local regulation are found in 33 U.S.C. 1233, which authorize 
the Coast Guard to establish and define special local regulations. The 
Captain of the Port Delaware Bay is establishing a special local 
regulation for the waters of Sunset Lake, near Wildwood Crest, NJ, to 
protect event participants, spectators and transiting vessels. Entry 
into this area is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the 
Captain of the Port Delaware Bay or designated representative.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The Sunset Lake Hydrofest Association sponsors an annual power boat 
race usually held on the last Friday, Saturday and Sunday in September 
in the waters of Sunset Lake adjacent to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey.
    The regulation listing annual marine events within the Fifth Coast 
Guard District and special local regulation locations is 33 CFR 
100.501. The Table to Sec.  100.501 identifies special local 
regulations by COTP zone, with the COTP Delaware Bay zone listed in 
section ``(a.)'' of the Table. The Table to Sec.  100.501, at section 
(a.) event Number ``9'', describes the enforcement date and regulated 
location for this marine event.
    The date listed in the Table has the marine event on the last 
Friday, Saturday and Sunday in September. However, this temporary rule 
changes the marine event date to September 13, 2014 and September 14, 
2014, to reflect the actual date of the event.
    A fleet of spectator vessels is anticipated to gather nearby to 
view the marine event. Due to the need for vessel control during the 
marine event vessel traffic will be temporarily restricted to provide 
for the safety of participants, spectators and transiting vessels. 
Under provisions of 33 CFR 100.501, during the enforcement period, 
vessels may not enter the regulated area unless they

[[Page 48066]]

receive permission from the Coast Guard Patrol Commander.
    The Coast Guard will temporarily suspend the regulation listed in 
Table to Sec.  100.501, section (a) event Number ``9'', and insert this 
temporary regulation at Table to Sec.  100.501, at section (a.) as 
event Number ``18'', in order to reflect that the safety zone will be 
effective and enforced from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on September 13, 
2014 and September 14, 2014. This change is needed to accommodate the 
sponsor's event plan. No other portion of the Table to Sec.  100.501 or 
other provisions in Sec.  100.501 shall be affected by this regulation.
    The regulated area of this special local regulation includes All 
waters of Sunset Lake, New Jersey, from shoreline to shoreline, south 
of latitude 38[deg]58'32'' N.
    During the period of the safety zone, all persons and vessels will 
be prohibited from entering, transiting, mooring, or remaining within 
the zone, unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port 
Delaware Bay, or her designated representative. Those persons 
authorized to transit through the safety zone shall abide by and follow 
all directions provided by the Captain of the Port Delaware Bay, or her 
designated representative, in order to ensure they are not disrupting 
this marine event. U.S. Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay will notify the 
public by broadcast notice to mariners at least one hour prior to the 
times of enforcement.

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 Executive Order 12866 or 
under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and 
Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. Although this regulation 
will restrict access to the regulated area, the effect of this rule 
will not be significant because: (i) The Coast Guard will make 
extensive notification of the Safety Zone to the maritime public via 
maritime advisories so mariners can alter their plans accordingly; (ii) 
vessels may still be permitted to transit through the safety zone with 
the permission of the Captain of the Port on a case-by-case basis; and 
(iii) this rule will be enforced for only the duration of the air show.

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 affect the following entities, some of 
which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels 
intending to anchor or transit along a portion of the Sunset Lake 
adjacent to Wildwood Crest, New Jersey from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on 
September 13, 2014 and September 14, 2014, unless cancelled earlier by 
the Captain of the Port once all operations are completed.
    This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reason: vessel 
traffic will be allowed to pass through the zone with permission of the 
Coast Guard Captain of the Port Delaware Bay or her designated 
representative and zone is limited in size and duration. Sector 
Delaware Bay will issue maritime advisories widely available to users 
of the Delaware Bay and River.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 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 involves implementation of regulations within 33 
CFR Part 100, applicable to special local regulations on the navigable 
waterways. This zone will temporarily restrict vessel traffic from 
transiting the waters of Sunset Lake adjacent to Wildwood Crest, NJ, in 
order to protect the safety of life and property on the waters for the 
duration of the power boat race. 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. We seek any 
comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant 
environmental impact from this rule.
