Download as PDF wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 51478 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 168 / Friday, August 29, 2014 / Rules and Regulations increases the annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data from $59 to $60 per area code; increases the maximum amount that will be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data from $16,228 to $16,482; and the fee per area code of data during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period remains $30. These increases are in accordance with the Act, which specifies that beginning after fiscal year 2009, the dollar amounts charged shall be increased by an amount equal to the amounts specified in the Act, multiplied by the percentage (if any) by which the average of the monthly consumer price index (for all urban consumers published by the Department of Labor) (‘‘CPI’’) for the most recently ended 12month period ending on June 30 exceeds the CPI for the 12-month period ending June 30, 2008. The Act also states that any increase shall be rounded to the nearest dollar and that there shall be no increase in the dollar amounts if the change in the CPI is less than one percent. For fiscal year 2009, the Act specified that the original annual fee for access to the Registry for each area code of data was $54 per area code, or $27 per area code of data during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period, and that the maximum amount that would be charged to any single entity for accessing area codes of data would be $14,850. The determination whether a fee change is required and the amount of the fee change involves a two-step process. First, to determine whether a fee change is required, we measure the change in the CPI from the time of the previous increase in fees. There was an increase in the fees for fiscal year 2014. Accordingly, we calculated the change in the CPI since last year, and the increase was 1.56 percent. Because this change is over the one percent threshold, the fees will change for fiscal year 2015. Second, to determine how much the fees should increase this fiscal year, we use the calculation specified by the Act set forth above, the percentage change in the baseline CPI applied to the original fees for fiscal year 2009. The average value of the CPI for July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008 was 211.702; the average value for July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014 was 234.966, an increase of 10.99 percent. Applying the 10.99 percent increase to the base amount from fiscal year 2009, leads to an increase from $59 to $60 in the fee from last year for access to a single area code of data for a full year for fiscal year 2015. The actual amount is $59.93, but when rounded, pursuant VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:18 Aug 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 to the Act, the amount is $60. The fee for accessing an additional area code for a half year remains $30 (rounded from $29.97). The maximum amount charged increases to $16,482.02 (rounded to $16,482). Administrative Procedure Act; Regulatory Flexibility Act; Paperwork Reduction Act. The revisions to the Fee Rule are technical in nature and merely incorporate statutory changes to the TSR. These statutory changes have been adopted without change or interpretation, making public comment unnecessary. Therefore, the Commission has determined that the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b). For this reason, the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act also do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 603, 604. Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) approved the information collection requirements in the Amended TSR and assigned the following existing OMB Control Number: 3084–0097. The amendments outlined in this Final Rule pertain only to the fee provision (§ 310.8) of the Amended TSR and will not establish or alter any record keeping, reporting, or third-party disclosure requirements elsewhere in the Amended TSR. Accordingly, the Federal Trade Commission amends part 310 of title 16 of the Code of Federal Regulations as follows: PART 310—TELEMARKETING SALES RULE to access, but is not required to access, the National Do Not Call Registry under this Rule, 47 CFR 64.1200, or any other Federal regulation or law. Any person accessing the National Do Not Call Registry may not participate in any arrangement to share the cost of accessing the registry, including any arrangement with any telemarketer or service provider to divide the costs to access the registry among various clients of that telemarketer or service provider. (d) Each person who pays, either directly or through another person, the annual fee set forth in § 310.8(c), each person excepted under § 310.8(c) from paying the annual fee, and each person excepted from paying an annual fee under § 310.4(b)(1)(iii)(B), will be provided a unique account number that will allow that person to access the registry data for the selected area codes at any time for the twelve month period beginning on the first day of the month in which the person paid the fee (‘‘the annual period’’). To obtain access to additional area codes of data during the first six months of the annual period, each person required to pay the fee under § 310.8(c) must first pay $60 for each additional area code of data not initially selected. To obtain access to additional area codes of data during the second six months of the annual period, each person required to pay the fee under § 310.8(c) must first pay $30 for each additional area code of data not initially selected. The payment of the additional fee will permit the person to access the additional area codes of data for the remainder of the annual period. * * * * * 1.

This temporary final rule is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during these events. Entry into, transit through, mooring or anchoring within these regulated areas and safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by COTP Sector Long Island Sound. This rule is effective from September 6, 2014 to September 14, 2014. DATES: Documents mentioned in this preamble are part of docket [USCG– 2014–0717].

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NAD 83 North American Datum of 1983 A. Regulatory History and Information The Great Peconic Race is a first time event with no regulatory history. The Region 8 Beach Brawl is a first time event with no regulatory history. 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 doing so would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. There is insufficient time to publish a NPRM and solicit comments from the public before these events take place. Thus, waiting for a comment period to run would inhibit the Coast Guard’s ability to fulfill its mission to keep the ports and waterways safe. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), and for the same reasons stated in the preceding paragraph, 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 for this temporary rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231, 1233; 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; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1 which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory special local regulations and safety zones. As discussed in the Regulatory History and Information section, two regattas will take place in the COTP Long Island Sound Zone between 51479 September 6, 2014 and September 14, 2014. The COTP Long Island Sound has determined that one special local regulation and one safety zone established by this temporary final rule are necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waterways during those events. The Great Peconic Race course itself will start and end at Wades Beach on Shelter Island proceeding in a counterclockwise direction to the east around Mashomack Point, and encompass a complete circumnavigation of Shelter Island, a total distance of 19 miles. On the south shore two event safety vessels will be present with a member of the south ferry staff with a red flag to stop and then wave paddlers on for safe crossing. One safety boat will be present on the north shore to assist paddlers as well. The Region 8 Beach Brawl is a two day marine event held close to the shore of Savin Rock Beach in West Haven, CT. During the event, multiple jet-skis will be running a closed loop course approximately 600 feet by 1,000 feet in size. There will three support craft supervising the event and will be using flags to control the race participants. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The Coast Guard is establishing one special local regulation for one regatta, and one safety zone for another regatta, to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during these events. This rule will be effective from September 6, 2014 to September 14, 2014. The special local regulation and safety zone for these events covered by this regulation will be enforced on the dates, times, and locations listed in the table below. Regatta event Great Peconic Race ............................................................................ • Date: September 14, 2014. • Time: 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. • Location: There will be two areas created for the special local regulation. The first area will encompass all navigable waters along the north shore of Shelter Island, NY including Shelter Island Sound, Pipes Cove, Greenport Harbor and Dering Harbor. The second area will encompass all navigable waters along the south shore of Shelter Island, NY including Shelter Island Sound and Smith Cove. 2 wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 1 Region 8 Beach Brawl ........................................................................ • • • • • For the special local regulation created in support of the Great Peconic Race under the general regulations in § 100.901 of this part, vessels transiting VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:18 Aug 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 Date: September 6, 2014.

Public notifications will be made to the local maritime community prior to the event through the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD 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 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. The Coast Guard determined that this rulemaking is not a significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The enforcement of the regulated area and safety zone will be relatively short in duration. Also, persons or vessels desiring entry into a regulated area or a deviance from the stipulations within a regulated area may be authorized to do so by the COTP Sector Long Island Sound or designated representative. Additionally, persons or vessels desiring to enter the safety zone may do so with permission from the COTP Sector Long Island Sound or designated representative. Furthermore, the special local regulation and the safety zone are designed in a way to limit impacts on vessel traffic, permitting vessels to navigate in other portions of the waterways not designated as a regulated area or as a safety zone. Finally, to increase public awareness of the special local regulation and the safety zone, the Coast Guard will notify the public of the enforcement of this rule via appropriate means, such as via Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 2. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:18 Aug 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 zero 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 rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, transit, anchor or moor within the regulated area or the safety zone during the periods of enforcement from September 6, 2014 to September 14, 2014. However, this temporary final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the same reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review section. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 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. 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 INTFORMATION 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. 4. Collection of Information 10. Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks 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. This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520.). 11. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\29AUR1.SGM 29AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 168 / Friday, August 29, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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. 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. List of Subjects 33 CFR Part 100 Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recording requirements, Waterways. 13. Technical Standards 33 CFR Part 165 This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, and Waterways. For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 33 CFR parts 100 and 165 as follows: 14. Environment wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In order to accommodate the annual Sarasota Iron Man Triathlon, a temporary schedule deviation has been authorized for the Venice Avenue Bridge, across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, mile 56.6 in Venice, FL. This deviation is in effect from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. on November 8, 2014. During this time, the bridge shall remain closed to navigation, including tugs with tows. Currently, the bridge opens as required per 33 CFR 117.287 (a–2), which states ‘‘the draw of the Venice Avenue bridge, shall open on signal, except that from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday except Federal holidays. The draw need open only at 10 minutes after the hour, 30 minutes after the hour and 50 minutes after the hour, except between 4:35 p.m. and 5:35 p.m.’’ The regulation changes may have a minor impact on vessels transiting the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in the vicinity of Venice, FL, but will still meet the reasonable needs of navigation. The Venice Avenue Bridge provides a vertical clearance of 30 feet at mean high water in the closed position and a horizontal clearance of 90 feet. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies. Also, vessels capable of using the Gulf of Mexico as an alternate route may do so in lieu of transiting the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway at mile 56.6 in Venice, FL from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. November 8, 2014. The Coast Guard will inform users of the waterways through Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessels can arrange PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately following the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the normal operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: August 15, 2014. Barry Dragon, Director, Bridge Administration, Seventh Coast Guard District.

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Great Peconic Race is a first time event with no regulatory 
history.
    The Region 8 Beach Brawl is a first time event with no regulatory 
history.
    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 doing so would be impracticable and 
contrary to the public interest. There is insufficient time to publish 
a NPRM and solicit comments from the public before these events take 
place. Thus, waiting for a comment period to run would inhibit the 
Coast Guard's ability to fulfill its mission to keep the ports and 
waterways safe.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), and for the same reasons stated in the 
preceding paragraph, 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 for this temporary rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231, 1233; 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; 
Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1 which 
collectively authorize the Coast Guard to define regulatory special 
local regulations and safety zones.
    As discussed in the Regulatory History and Information section, two 
regattas will take place in the COTP Long Island Sound Zone between 
September 6, 2014 and September 14, 2014. The COTP Long Island Sound 
has determined that one special local regulation and one safety zone 
established by this temporary final rule are necessary to provide for 
the safety of life on navigable waterways during those events.
    The Great Peconic Race course itself will start and end at Wades 
Beach on Shelter Island proceeding in a counter-clockwise direction to 
the east around Mashomack Point, and encompass a complete 
circumnavigation of Shelter Island, a total distance of 19 miles. On 
the south shore two event safety vessels will be present with a member 
of the south ferry staff with a red flag to stop and then wave paddlers 
on for safe crossing. One safety boat will be present on the north 
shore to assist paddlers as well.
    The Region 8 Beach Brawl is a two day marine event held close to 
the shore of Savin Rock Beach in West Haven, CT. During the event, 
multiple jet-skis will be running a closed loop course approximately 
600 feet by 1,000 feet in size. There will three support craft 
supervising the event and will be using flags to control the race 
participants.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing one special local regulation for 
one regatta, and one safety zone for another regatta, to provide for 
the safety of life on navigable waters during these events. This rule 
will be effective from September 6, 2014 to September 14, 2014.
    The special local regulation and safety zone for these events 
covered by this regulation will be enforced on the dates, times, and 
locations listed in the table below.

                                          2014.
                                          Time: 8:00 a.m. to

                                          Beach, West Haven, CT.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the special local regulation created in support of the Great 
Peconic Race under the general regulations in Sec.  100.901 of this 
part, vessels transiting within the regulated area shall travel at a 
no-wake speed and remain vigilant at all times. Additionally, 
recreational vessels shall yield right-of-way for event participants 
and event safety craft and shall follow directions given by event 
representatives during the event. Commercial vessels will have right-
of-

[[Page 51480]]

way over event participants, and event safety craft.
    For the safety zone created in support of the Region 8 Beach Brawl 
this rule prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or 
anchoring within the area specifically designated as a safety zone.
    Public notifications will be made to the local maritime community 
prior to the event through the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners.

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.
    The Coast Guard determined that this rulemaking is not a 
significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The 
enforcement of the regulated area and safety zone will be relatively 
short in duration. Also, persons or vessels desiring entry into a 
regulated area or a deviance from the stipulations within a regulated 
area may be authorized to do so by the COTP Sector Long Island Sound or 
designated representative. Additionally, persons or vessels desiring to 
enter the safety zone may do so with permission from the COTP Sector 
Long Island Sound or designated representative. Furthermore, the 
special local regulation and the safety zone are designed in a way to 
limit impacts on vessel traffic, permitting vessels to navigate in 
other portions of the waterways not designated as a regulated area or 
as a safety zone. Finally, to increase public awareness of the special 
local regulation and the safety zone, the Coast Guard will notify the 
public of the enforcement of this rule via appropriate means, such as 
via Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

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 zero 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 rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be 
small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to enter, 
transit, anchor or moor within the regulated area or the safety zone 
during the periods of enforcement from September 6, 2014 to September 
14, 2014. However, this temporary final rule will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
for the same reasons discussed in the Regulatory Planning and Review 
section.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 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 
INTFORMATION 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 From Environmental Health Risks

    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.

11. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination

[[Page 51481]]

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 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 the establishment of one special local 
regulation and one safety zone. This rule is categorically excluded 
from further review under paragraph 34(g) and (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.
