Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for all waters of the Ohio River, surface to bottom, extending from Ohio River mile 470.4 to mile 470.8 at Cincinnati, Ohio. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect persons and property from potential damage and safety hazards during the University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football Fireworks. During the period of enforcement, no vessels may be located within this Coast Guard safety zone. Entry into this Coast Guard safety zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Ohio Valley or other designated representative.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 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. The Coast Guard was made aware of the schedule for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football Fireworks on August 6, 2014. There are potential hazards associated with fireworks displays over or on the Ohio River and a safety zone is required to protect persons and property on or near the waterway during the displays. Completing the NPRM process and providing notice and a comment period is contrary to the public interest because it would delay this rule and the immediate safety measures it provides. Additionally, the University of Cincinnati’s game schedule and these fireworks displays are advertised to the local community by and through the University of Cincinnati organization. Delaying the safety zone effective date to complete the NPRM process would be impracticable as it would interfere with the advertised and planned for displays and would unnecessarily interfere with contractual obligations related to these events. 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 a full 30 days notice would be impracticable and would unnecessarily delay the effective date of this rule. Delaying the effective date would also be contrary to public interest since immediate action is necessary to protect E:\FR\FM\06NOR1.SGM 06NOR1 65896 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 215 / Thursday, November 6, 2014 / Rules and Regulations persons and property from potential hazards associated with fireworks displays over or on the Ohio River. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES B. Basis and Purpose Multiple fireworks displays are planned to conclude the University of Cincinnati Bearcats football games scheduled on September 12 & 20; October 4 & 24; November 13; and December 6, 2014. These displays will feature fireworks being launched from a barge located in front of the Paul Brown Stadium, between miles 470.4 and 470.8 on the Ohio River at Cincinnati, OH. The Coast Guard determined that a safety zone is necessary to keep persons and property clear of any potential hazards associated with the launching of fireworks on or over the waterway. 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; Pub. L. 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define regulatory safety zones. The purpose of the rule is to establish the necessary temporary safety zone to provide protection for persons and property, including spectators, commercial and recreational vessels, and others that may be in the area during the noticed fireworks display times from the hazards associated with the fireworks display on and over the waterway. C. Discussion of the Final Rule The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a temporary safety zone from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on September 12 & 20; October 4 & 24; November 13; and December 6, 2014 for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football Fireworks. The fireworks will be launched from a barge located in front of the Paul Brown Stadium and the safety zone will include all waters between Ohio River miles 470.4 and 470.8 at Cincinnati, Ohio. The Coast Guard will enforce the temporary safety zone and may be assisted by other federal, state and local agencies and the Coast Guard Auxiliary. During the periods of enforcement, no vessels may transit into, through, or remain within this Coast Guard safety zone. Deviation from this safety zone may be requested by contacting the COTP Ohio Valley or other designated representative. Deviations will be considered on a case-by-case basis. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:26 Nov 05, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 temporary final rule establishes a safety zone that will be enforced for limited time periods following certain University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football home games. During enforcement periods, vessels are prohibited from entering into or remaining within the safety zone unless specifically authorized by the COTP Ohio Valley or other designated representative. Based on the location, limited safety zone size, and short duration of each enforcement period, this rule does not pose a significant regulatory impact. Additionally, notice of this safety zone or any changes in the planned schedule will be made via Broadcast Notices to Mariners, Local Notices to Mariners, and/or Marine Safety Information Bulletins as appropriate. Deviation from this rule may be requested from the COTP Ohio Valley and 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 would affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor between Ohio River miles 470.4 to 470.8 from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on September 12 & 20; October 4 & 24; November 13; and December 6, 2014. This safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it is limited in size and will be enforced for a limited time period following certain scheduled University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football home PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 games. The Coast Guard will provide notice of enforcement and changes in the planned schedule through Broadcast Notices to Mariners, Local Notices to Mariners, and/or Marine Safety Information Bulletins as appropriate. 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 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. E:\FR\FM\06NOR1.SGM 06NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 215 / Thursday, November 6, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:26 Nov 05, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 establishment of a temporary safety zone to protect persons and property from potential hazards associated with the scheduled University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football Fireworks taking place on or over the Ohio River. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) 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.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

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. The Coast Guard was made aware of the 
schedule for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football Fireworks 
on August 6, 2014. There are potential hazards associated with 
fireworks displays over or on the Ohio River and a safety zone is 
required to protect persons and property on or near the waterway during 
the displays. Completing the NPRM process and providing notice and a 
comment period is contrary to the public interest because it would 
delay this rule and the immediate safety measures it provides. 
Additionally, the University of Cincinnati's game schedule and these 
fireworks displays are advertised to the local community by and through 
the University of Cincinnati organization. Delaying the safety zone 
effective date to complete the NPRM process would be impracticable as 
it would interfere with the advertised and planned for displays and 
would unnecessarily interfere with contractual obligations related to 
these events.
    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 a full 30 
days notice would be impracticable and would unnecessarily delay the 
effective date of this rule. Delaying the effective date would also be 
contrary to public interest since immediate action is necessary to 
protect

[[Page 65896]]

persons and property from potential hazards associated with fireworks 
displays over or on the Ohio River.

B. Basis and Purpose

    Multiple fireworks displays are planned to conclude the University 
of Cincinnati Bearcats football games scheduled on September 12 & 20; 
October 4 & 24; November 13; and December 6, 2014. These displays will 
feature fireworks being launched from a barge located in front of the 
Paul Brown Stadium, between miles 470.4 and 470.8 on the Ohio River at 
Cincinnati, OH. The Coast Guard determined that a safety zone is 
necessary to keep persons and property clear of any potential hazards 
associated with the launching of fireworks on or over the waterway.
    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; Pub. L. 107-295, 116 Stat. 2064; 
and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which 
collectively authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define 
regulatory safety zones.
    The purpose of the rule is to establish the necessary temporary 
safety zone to provide protection for persons and property, including 
spectators, commercial and recreational vessels, and others that may be 
in the area during the noticed fireworks display times from the hazards 
associated with the fireworks display on and over the waterway.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The COTP Ohio Valley is establishing a temporary safety zone from 
9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on September 12 & 20; October 4 & 24; November 
13; and December 6, 2014 for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats 
Football Fireworks. The fireworks will be launched from a barge located 
in front of the Paul Brown Stadium and the safety zone will include all 
waters between Ohio River miles 470.4 and 470.8 at Cincinnati, Ohio. 
The Coast Guard will enforce the temporary safety zone and may be 
assisted by other federal, state and local agencies and the Coast Guard 
Auxiliary. During the periods of enforcement, no vessels may transit 
into, through, or remain within this Coast Guard safety zone. Deviation 
from this safety zone may be requested by contacting the COTP Ohio 
Valley or other designated representative. Deviations will be 
considered on a case-by-case basis.

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 temporary final rule establishes a safety zone that will be 
enforced for limited time periods following certain University of 
Cincinnati Bearcats Football home games. During enforcement periods, 
vessels are prohibited from entering into or remaining within the 
safety zone unless specifically authorized by the COTP Ohio Valley or 
other designated representative. Based on the location, limited safety 
zone size, and short duration of each enforcement period, this rule 
does not pose a significant regulatory impact. Additionally, notice of 
this safety zone or any changes in the planned schedule will be made 
via Broadcast Notices to Mariners, Local Notices to Mariners, and/or 
Marine Safety Information Bulletins as appropriate. Deviation from this 
rule may be requested from the COTP Ohio Valley and 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 would affect the following entities, some of which might 
be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor between Ohio River miles 470.4 to 470.8 from 9:30 
p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on September 12 & 20; October 4 & 24; November 13; 
and December 6, 2014.
    This safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities because it is limited in size and 
will be enforced for a limited time period following certain scheduled 
University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football home games. The Coast Guard 
will provide notice of enforcement and changes in the planned schedule 
through Broadcast Notices to Mariners, Local Notices to Mariners, and/
or Marine Safety Information Bulletins as appropriate.

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 
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 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 establishment of a temporary safety 
zone to protect persons and property from potential hazards associated 
with the scheduled University of Cincinnati Bearcats Football Fireworks 
taking place on or over the Ohio River. This rule is categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) 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.
