We received no comments on the NPRM. We received no requests for a public meeting. 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, 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 define security zones. As mentioned above, the Coast Guard previously established three RNAs on the waters of the East River and Bronx Kill, near Wall Street Heliport, Randalls and Wards Islands, and the United Nations Building. The primary purpose of these three RNAs was to protect dignitaries, such as the President of the United States, who visit the United Nations. Although these RNAs served their intended purpose, the Coast Guard is replacing them with security zones to best communicate the federal government’s security posture in these particular water areas. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule We received no comments in response to the proposed rule and the final rule is being published without change. 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. E:\FR\FM\30DER1.SGM 30DER1
