SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking § Section A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:18 Sep 11, 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)(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. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this temporary rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. For the same reasons discussed in the preceding paragraph, waiting for a 30 day notice period to run would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. B. Basis and Purpose Between 6:45 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. on September 13 and 14, 2014, a triathlon/ swimming races will be held offshore of Sackets Harbor, Sackets, NY. The Captain of the Port Buffalo has determined that large scale swimming event on a navigable waterway will pose a significant risk to participants and the boating public. C. Discussion of Rule With the aforementioned hazards in mind, the Captain of the Port Buffalo has determined that this temporary safety zone is necessary to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and vessels during the IncreDoubleman Triathlon event. This zone will be effective and enforced from 6:45 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. on September 13 and 14, 2014. The zone will encompass waters of Lake Ontario near Sackets Harbor, NY. Specifically, the safety zone will cover all waters of Lake Ontario landward of a line connecting the following points: 43°57′0.359″ N and 76°7′14.847″ W extending northeast to 43°57′12.704″ N and 76°7′2.644″ W and then extending east to 43°57′11.037″ N and 76°6′50.054″ W (NAD 83). The zone will include waters leading into, and away from, any marinas located in close proximity to the race area. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone will be authorized on a case by case basis after contacting the Captain of the Port Buffalo or his designated on-scene representative. The Captain of the Port or his designated on-scene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 54603 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 and 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. We conclude that this rule is not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The safety zone created by this rule will be relatively small and enforced for a maximum of 5.5 hours. Also, the safety zone is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. The safety zone will allow vessels to transit through with approval from the Coast Guard onscene representative. 2. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered the impact of this rule on small entities. 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 might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit a portion of Black River Bay in Sackets Harbor, NY on the mornings of September 13 and 14. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: This safety zone will allow for the passage of vessels through the zone with the permission of the Captain of the Port. The Captain of the Port can be reached via VHF channel 16. Before the activation of the zone, we would issue local Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 3. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), E:\FR\FM\12SER1.SGM 12SER1 54604 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 177 / Friday, September 12, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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 section 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). mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 16:18 Sep 11, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 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 the PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 establishment of a safety zone and, therefore it is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY ACTION: Building, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. Jkt 232001 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 it is impracticable to provide a full comment period due to lack of time before the high speed boat race is planned for this season. Completing the NPRM process and providing notice and a comment period is impracticable because it would unnecessarily delay this rule and the immediate safety measures it provides to the event participants, patrol vessels, spectator craft and other vessels transiting the event area. Additionally, the high speed boat race is advertised to the local community by and through the I–10 Race Promotions. Delaying the safety zone’s effective date to complete the NPRM process would interfere with the advertised and planned boat race and would unnecessarily interfere with contractual obligations related to this event. The Coast Guard will provide advance notifications to users of the affected waterways of the safety zone via marine information broadcasts and local notice to mariners. PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 54605 B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 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, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to propose, establish, and define regulatory safety zones. I–10 Race Promotions is sponsoring the Lucas Oil Thunder on the River, which will involve 150 drag boats, 10 to 50 feet in length from across the United States and Canada. The safety zone will cover the majority of Thompson Bay. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, sponsor vessels, other vessels, and users of the waterway, specifically in minimizing vessel wakes by transiting vessels in the vicinity of the racing area. Unnecessary wakes can disrupt the racing boats and could cause injury or damage to the racing vessels. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone that will be enforced from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on October 10, 2014 through October 12, 2014. The effect of the temporary safety zone will be to restrict navigation in the vicinity of the boat race site until the conclusion of the races. The limits of the safety zone will include all the navigable waters of Thompson Bay encompassed by drawing a line from point to point along the following coordinates: Northern Zone Line: 34°27′57.96″ N, 114°20′48.49″ W 34°27′57.71″ N, 114°20′49.75″ W North West Zone Line: 34°27′07.99″ N, 114°21′09.93″ W 34°26′51.99″ N, 114°21′03.83″ W South Zone Line: 34°27′07.99″ N, 114°21′09.93″ W 34°26′51.99″ N, 114°21′03.83″ W The safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the crew, spectators, participants, and other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels will be prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or anchoring within this safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or his designated representative, during the proposed times. The three day event will include official racing on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Before the effective period, the Coast Guard will publish a local notice to mariners (LNM) and the event sponsor through Lake Havasu City has extensively advertised the marine event with the public.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
Sec.  Section

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)(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.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause 
exists for making this temporary rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register. For the same reasons discussed in 
the preceding paragraph, waiting for a 30 day notice period to run 
would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest.

B. Basis and Purpose

    Between 6:45 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. on September 13 and 14, 2014, a 
triathlon/swimming races will be held offshore of Sackets Harbor, 
Sackets, NY. The Captain of the Port Buffalo has determined that large 
scale swimming event on a navigable waterway will pose a significant 
risk to participants and the boating public.

C. Discussion of Rule

    With the aforementioned hazards in mind, the Captain of the Port 
Buffalo has determined that this temporary safety zone is necessary to 
ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and vessels during the 
IncreDoubleman Triathlon event. This zone will be effective and 
enforced from 6:45 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. on September 13 and 14, 2014. 
The zone will encompass waters of Lake Ontario near Sackets Harbor, NY. 
Specifically, the safety zone will cover all waters of Lake Ontario 
landward of a line connecting the following points: 43[deg]57'0.359'' N 
and 76[deg]7'14.847'' W extending northeast to 43[deg]57'12.704'' N and 
76[deg]7'2.644'' W and then extending east to 43[deg]57'11.037'' N and 
76[deg]6'50.054'' W (NAD 83). The zone will include waters leading 
into, and away from, any marinas located in close proximity to the race 
area.
    Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone will be 
authorized on a case by case basis after contacting the Captain of the 
Port Buffalo or his designated on-scene representative. The Captain of 
the Port or his designated on-scene representative may be contacted via 
VHF Channel 16.

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 and 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.
    We conclude that this rule is not a significant regulatory action 
because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, 
will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the 
budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel 
legal or policy issues. The safety zone created by this rule will be 
relatively small and enforced for a maximum of 5.5 hours. Also, the 
safety zone is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. The 
safety zone will allow vessels to transit through with approval from 
the Coast Guard on-scene representative.

2. Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered the impact of this rule on small entities. 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 might be 
small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit 
a portion of Black River Bay in Sackets Harbor, NY on the mornings of 
September 13 and 14. This safety zone will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the 
following reasons: This safety zone will allow for the passage of 
vessels through the zone with the permission of the Captain of the 
Port. The Captain of the Port can be reached via VHF channel 16. Before 
the activation of the zone, we would issue local Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners.

3. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121),

[[Page 54604]]

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 section 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

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 the establishment of a safety zone and, 
therefore it is categorically excluded from further review under 
paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. We seek 
any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a 
significant environmental impact from this rule.
