SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information On May 17, 2013 we published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Safety Zone, Shallowbag Bay; Manteo, NC’’ in the Federal Register (78 FR 29091). We received no comments on the proposed rules. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish regulated navigation areas and other limited access areas: 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, 160.5; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. This notice is issued under the authority of the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552(a). On September 26, 2014 fireworks will be launched from a barge located in Shallowbag Bay in Manteo, North Carolina as part of the Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival. The temporary safety zone created by this rule is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and spectators from hazards associated with the fireworks display. Such hazards include obstructions to the waterway that may cause death, serious bodily harm, or property damage, as well as the accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. Establishing a safety zone to control vessel movement around the location of the launch area will help ensure the safety of persons and property in the vicinity of this event and help minimize the associated risks. C. Discussion of Proposed Rule A temporary safety zone is necessary to ensure the safety of spectators and vessels during the setup, loading, and launching of the Outer Banks Bluegrass E:\FR\FM\29AUR1.SGM 29AUR1
