SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES Table of Acronyms BNM Broadcast Notices to Mariners COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:08 Aug 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule. Completing the full NPRM process is contrary to the public interest as it would delay the additional safety measures necessary to protect participants and event personnel from the possible marine hazards present during the swimming portion of this event. The ‘‘Tri Clarksville Triathlon’’ is planned to take place on August 23, 2014; the swimming portion of this event will take place on the Cumberland River at approximately 127.4. Upon reviewing the details of this event, the Coast Guard determined that a special local regulation is necessary during the event’s swim portion. The event has been advertised and is planned by the local community. Delaying the special local regulation would also unnecessarily interfere with the planned event and has the potential to affect contractual obligations of the event sponsors. 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. Providing 30 days notice for this occurrence would unnecessarily delay the effective date and would be contrary to public interest because immediate action is necessary to protect event participants from the possible marine hazards present during the swim portion of this event. B. Basis and Purpose The swim portion of the ‘‘Tri Clarksville Triathlon’’ takes place on the Cumberland River from mile 127.0 to 128.0. The Coast Guard determined that a temporary special local regulation is needed to protect the 700 participants in the ‘‘Tri Clarksville Triathlon’’ during the swim portion. The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 33 U.S.C. 1233, which authorizes the Coast Guard to establish and define special local regulations. The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a special local regulation for the waters of the Cumberland River, from mile 127.0 to 128.0 to protect the participants during the swim portion of the ‘‘Tri Clarksville Triathlon’’. Entry into this area is PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 48063 prohibited unless specifically authorized by the COTP Ohio Valley or designated representative. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a special local regulation for the waters of the Cumberland River, from mile 127.0 to 128.0, during the swim portion of the ‘‘Tri Clarksville Triathlon’’. During this event, vessels shall not enter into, depart from, or move within the regulated area without permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or his authorized representative. Persons or vessels requiring entry into or passage through the regulated area must request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley, or a designated representative. Sector Ohio Valley may be contacted on VHF– FM Channel 13 or 16, or 1–800–253– 7465. This rule is effective from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. August 23, 2014. The COTP Ohio Valley will inform the public through Broadcast Notices to Mariners (BNM) of the enforcement period for the special local regulation as well as any changes in the planned schedule. 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 special local regulation restricts transit on the Cumberland River from mile 127.0 to 128.0 and covers a period of two and one half hours, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on August 23, 2014. Due to its short duration and limited scope, it does not pose a significant regulatory impact. BNMs will also inform the community of this special local regulation so that they may plan accordingly for this short restriction on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the restricted area or deviate from this regulation. Requests to deviate from this E:\FR\FM\15AUR1.SGM 15AUR1 48064 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 158 / Friday, August 15, 2014 / Rules and Regulations regulation will be considered on a caseby-case basis. 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 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 transit from mile 127.0 to 128.0 on the Cumberland River, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on August 23, 2014. The special local regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because this rule will be in effect for a short period of time. Before the activation of the zone, we would issue maritime advisories widely available to waterway users. 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 (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. 4. Collection of Information emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES 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. 17:08 Aug 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 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 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 6. Protest Activities 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 rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 concluded 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 establishing a temporary special local regulation to protect the participants in the swimming portion of the ‘‘Tri Clarksville Triathlon’’ on the Cumberland River from mile 127.0 to 128.0 for two and one half hour period on one day. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis was performed during the marine event permit process for the swimming event and a checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are not required for this special local regulation.

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 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.

A. 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 
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)(3)(B), the Coast Guard finds that 
good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) with respect to this rule. Completing the full NPRM process is 
contrary to the public interest as it would delay the additional safety 
measures necessary to protect participants and event personnel from the 
possible marine hazards present during the swimming portion of this 
event. The ``Tri Clarksville Triathlon'' is planned to take place on 
August 23, 2014; the swimming portion of this event will take place on 
the Cumberland River at approximately 127.4. Upon reviewing the details 
of this event, the Coast Guard determined that a special local 
regulation is necessary during the event's swim portion. The event has 
been advertised and is planned by the local community. Delaying the 
special local regulation would also unnecessarily interfere with the 
planned event and has the potential to affect contractual obligations 
of the event sponsors.
    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. Providing 30 days 
notice for this occurrence would unnecessarily delay the effective date 
and would be contrary to public interest because immediate action is 
necessary to protect event participants from the possible marine 
hazards present during the swim portion of this event.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The swim portion of the ``Tri Clarksville Triathlon'' takes place 
on the Cumberland River from mile 127.0 to 128.0. The Coast Guard 
determined that a temporary special local regulation is needed to 
protect the 700 participants in the ``Tri Clarksville Triathlon'' 
during the swim portion. The legal basis and authorities for this rule 
are found in 33 U.S.C. 1233, which authorizes the Coast Guard to 
establish and define special local regulations. The COTP Ohio Valley is 
establishing a special local regulation for the waters of the 
Cumberland River, from mile 127.0 to 128.0 to protect the participants 
during the swim portion of the ``Tri Clarksville Triathlon''. Entry 
into this area is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the COTP 
Ohio Valley or designated representative.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a special local regulation for 
the waters of the Cumberland River, from mile 127.0 to 128.0, during 
the swim portion of the ``Tri Clarksville Triathlon''. During this 
event, vessels shall not enter into, depart from, or move within the 
regulated area without permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or his 
authorized representative. Persons or vessels requiring entry into or 
passage through the regulated area must request permission from the 
COTP Ohio Valley, or a designated representative. Sector Ohio Valley 
may be contacted on VHF-FM Channel 13 or 16, or 1-800-253-7465. This 
rule is effective from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. August 23, 2014. The COTP 
Ohio Valley will inform the public through Broadcast Notices to 
Mariners (BNM) of the enforcement period for the special local 
regulation as well as any changes in the planned schedule.

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 special local regulation restricts transit on the Cumberland 
River from mile 127.0 to 128.0 and covers a period of two and one half 
hours, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on August 23, 2014. Due to its short 
duration and limited scope, it does not pose a significant regulatory 
impact. BNMs will also inform the community of this special local 
regulation so that they may plan accordingly for this short restriction 
on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio 
Valley or a designated representative to enter the restricted area or 
deviate from this regulation. Requests to deviate from this

[[Page 48064]]

regulation will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

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 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 transit 
from mile 127.0 to 128.0 on the Cumberland River, from 7:00 a.m. to 
9:30 a.m. on August 23, 2014. The special local regulation will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities because this rule will be in effect for a short period of 
time. Before the activation of the zone, we would issue maritime 
advisories widely available to waterway users. 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 (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.

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 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 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 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 concluded 
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 establishing a temporary special local regulation to 
protect the participants in the swimming portion of the ``Tri 
Clarksville Triathlon'' on the Cumberland River from mile 127.0 to 
128.0 for two and one half hour period on one day. This rule is 
categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h), of the 
Commandant Instruction.
    An environmental analysis was performed during the marine event 
permit process for the swimming event and a checklist and a categorical 
exclusion determination are not required for this special local 
regulation.
