[FR Doc. 2014–19989 Filed 8–21–14; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 9110–04–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 165 Security Zone: Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts Coast Guard, DHS. ACTION: Temporary final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is establishing two 1000-yard temporary security zones around the President of the United States (POTUS) and/or the first family in conjunction with their visit to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. Vessels and people will be prohibited from entering these security zones during the effective period. These security zones will be effective from 30 minutes prior to the arrival of the POTUS and/or the first family within 1000 yards of navigable waters of the U.S. in the the coastal areas of Chilmark and Edgartown Great Pond, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, until departure of the POTUS and/or the first family from the area. These security zones are needed to safeguard the POTUS and the first family from potential threats or harm. Entry into these zones by any vessel or person is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) or the COTP’s designated onscene representative. DATES: This rule is effective without actual notice from August 22, 2014 until rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:40 Aug 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 APA Administrative Procedure Act CFR Code of Federal Register DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking POTUS President of the United States USC United States Code USCG United States Coast Guard A. Regulatory 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)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because of the sensitive security issues related to the POTUS and first family. Providing a public notice and comment period is contrary to national security concerns and the public interest. 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. Any delay encountered in this PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 temporary rule’s effective date would be contrary to the public interest given the immediate need to ensure the safety and security of the POTUS and first family during their visit to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, from August 08, 2014 through August 24, 2014. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231; 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. The POTUS and first family will visit Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, from August 08, 2014 through August 24, 2014. It is expected they will reside and/or participate in activities on property that borders navigable waters within the Captain of the Port, Southeastern New England zone. The U.S. Secret Service has requested that the Coast Guard provide 1000-yard waterside security zones around the POTUS and the first family. These security zones are intended to provide security for the POTUS and first family by preventing vessels and persons from approaching the location of the POTUS and first family without prior authorization from the U.S. Secret Service. C. Discussion of Rule This temporary rule establishes 1000yard security zones in the navigable waters in the vicinity of the POTUS and first family during their visit to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, from August 08–24, 2014. Vessels and persons will be prohibited from entering these security zones whenever they are enforced due to the presence of the POTUS and/or first family. This rule is effective from 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 08, 2014 through 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 24, 2014. This action is intended to temporarily prohibit vessels or people from approaching within 1000 yards of the POTUS and/or first family while they are in or near the navigable waters of the U.S. during their visit to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. The Captain of the Port, Southeastern New England, anticipates negligible negative impact on vessel traffic from these temporary security zones, as they will be in effect for only sixteen days, and will only be enforced while the POTUS and/or first family are in the vicinity of the navigable waters of the U.S. at Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. It has been determined that the necessary security enhancements provided by this rule E:\FR\FM\22AUR1.SGM 22AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 163 / Friday, August 22, 2014 / Rules and Regulations greatly outweigh any potential negative impacts. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders relating to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes or executive orders. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD 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, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this rule to be so minimal that a full regulatory evaluation under the regulatory policies and procedures of DHS is unnecessary. The effect of this rule will not be significant as the duration of the security zones is for only sixteen days, and will only be in effect while the POTUS and/or first family are in the vicinity of the navigable waters of the U.S. at Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. 2. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 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 may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to transit in the vicinity of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts from 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 8, 2014 through 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 24, 2014. The security zones will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The security zones are temporary and effective only while the POTUS and/or first family are in the vicinity of the navigable waters of the U.S. at Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. Thus, the temporary nature and limited effective period of the zones, coupled with the ability of VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:40 Aug 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 the maritime public to maneuver around the zones, will allow small entities to plan and conduct their business accordingly. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we offer to assist small entities in understanding the rule so that they could better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. If you think your small business or organization would be affected by this rule and you have any questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please call Mr. Edward G. Leblanc at (401) 435–2351. 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 calls for no 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 State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it 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. PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 49687 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 We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not E:\FR\FM\22AUR1.SGM 22AUR1 49688 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 163 / Friday, August 22, 2014 / Rules and Regulations require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. 13. Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(g) of the Instruction. This rule fits the category selected from paragraph (34)(g), as it establishes temporary security zones for a limited period of time. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination will be 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.

Security Zone: Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing two 1000-yard temporary 
security zones around the President of the United States (POTUS) and/or 
the first family in conjunction with their visit to Martha's Vineyard, 
Massachusetts. Vessels and people will be prohibited from entering 
these security zones during the effective period.
    These security zones will be effective from 30 minutes prior to the 
arrival of the POTUS and/or the first family within 1000 yards of 
navigable waters of the U.S. in the the coastal areas of Chilmark and 
Edgartown Great Pond, Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, until departure 
of the POTUS and/or the first family from the area. These security 
zones are needed to safeguard the POTUS and the first family from 
potential threats or harm. Entry into these zones by any vessel or 
person is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of 
the Port (COTP) or the COTP's designated on-scene representative.

DATES: This rule is effective without actual notice from August 22, 
2014 until August 24, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. For the purposes of 
enforcement, actual notice will be used from the date the rule was 
signed, August 7, 2014, until August 22, 2014.

A. Regulatory 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)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
with respect to this rule because of the sensitive security issues 
related to the POTUS and first family. Providing a public notice and 
comment period is contrary to national security concerns and the public 
interest.
    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. Any delay encountered in this 
temporary rule's effective date would be contrary to the public 
interest given the immediate need to ensure the safety and security of 
the POTUS and first family during their visit to Martha's Vineyard, 
Massachusetts, from August 08, 2014 through August 24, 2014.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for this rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231; 46 U.S.C. Chapter 
701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05-1, 6.04-1, 6.04-6, and 
160.5; Public Law 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland 
Security Delegation No. 0170.1.
    The POTUS and first family will visit Martha's Vineyard, 
Massachusetts, from August 08, 2014 through August 24, 2014. It is 
expected they will reside and/or participate in activities on property 
that borders navigable waters within the Captain of the Port, 
Southeastern New England zone. The U.S. Secret Service has requested 
that the Coast Guard provide 1000-yard waterside security zones around 
the POTUS and the first family. These security zones are intended to 
provide security for the POTUS and first family by preventing vessels 
and persons from approaching the location of the POTUS and first family 
without prior authorization from the U.S. Secret Service.

C. Discussion of Rule

    This temporary rule establishes 1000-yard security zones in the 
navigable waters in the vicinity of the POTUS and first family during 
their visit to Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, from August 08-24, 
2014. Vessels and persons will be prohibited from entering these 
security zones whenever they are enforced due to the presence of the 
POTUS and/or first family.
    This rule is effective from 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 08, 2014 
through 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 24, 2014.
    This action is intended to temporarily prohibit vessels or people 
from approaching within 1000 yards of the POTUS and/or first family 
while they are in or near the navigable waters of the U.S. during their 
visit to Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.
    The Captain of the Port, Southeastern New England, anticipates 
negligible negative impact on vessel traffic from these temporary 
security zones, as they will be in effect for only sixteen days, and 
will only be enforced while the POTUS and/or first family are in the 
vicinity of the navigable waters of the U.S. at Martha's Vineyard, 
Massachusetts. It has been determined that the necessary security 
enhancements provided by this rule

[[Page 49687]]

greatly outweigh any potential negative impacts.

D. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders relating 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, and does 
not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 
6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not 
reviewed it under that Order.
    The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this rule to be so 
minimal that a full regulatory evaluation under the regulatory policies 
and procedures of DHS is unnecessary. The effect of this rule will not 
be significant as the duration of the security zones is for only 
sixteen days, and will only be in effect while the POTUS and/or first 
family are in the vicinity of the navigable waters of the U.S. at 
Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. 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 may affect the following entities, some of which may be 
small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to 
transit in the vicinity of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts from 8:00 
a.m. on Friday, August 8, 2014 through 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 24, 
2014. The security zones will not have a significant impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The 
security zones are temporary and effective only while the POTUS and/or 
first family are in the vicinity of the navigable waters of the U.S. at 
Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. Thus, the temporary nature and 
limited effective period of the zones, coupled with the ability of the 
maritime public to maneuver around the zones, will allow small entities 
to plan and conduct their business accordingly.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we offer to assist small 
entities in understanding the rule so that they could better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking process. If you 
think your small business or organization would be affected by this 
rule and you have any questions concerning its provisions or options 
for compliance, please call Mr. Edward G. Leblanc at (401) 435-2351.
    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 calls for no 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 State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it 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

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not

[[Page 49688]]

require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211.

13. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or 
operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management 
systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus 
standards bodies.
    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 which do not individually 
or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. 
This rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2-1, paragraph 
(34)(g) of the Instruction. This rule fits the category selected from 
paragraph (34)(g), as it establishes temporary security zones for a 
limited period of time. An environmental analysis checklist and a 
categorical exclusion determination will be 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.
