SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking TFR Temporary Final Rule 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 an NPRM with respect to this rule because doing so would be impracticable. Additional details regarding this emergent event were received from the event sponsor after the annual permitting process but not received in sufficient time for the Coast Guard to publish an NPRM and solicit public comments before the occurrence of the event. Thus, waiting for a notice and comment period to run would inhibit the Coast Guard from protecting the public and vessels from hazards associated with the event. 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 On Saturday, April 18, 2015, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. an organized racing event will take place on the Maumee River where participants will row shell boats from the Craig Memorial Bridge at River Mile 3.30 to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge at River Mile 4.30 on the Maumee River in Toledo, OH. The Captain of the Port Detroit has determined that this boat race, due to its close proximity to watercraft and being PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 in the shipping channel, poses extra and unusual hazards to public safety and property, including potential collisions, allisions, and individuals falling into the water. Establishing a special local regulated area is necessary to protect persons and property at these events and help minimize the associated risks. C. Discussion of Rule This rule will be enforced 6 a.m. until 1 p.m. on April 18, 2015. The Coast Guard requires that all vessels transiting the area proceed at a no-wake speed and maintain extra vigilance at all times. Vessel traffic may proceed down the West side of the river at a no wake speed during racing. The races will stop for oncoming freighter or commercial traffic. The on-scene representative or event sponsor representatives may permit vessels to transit the area when no race activity is occurring. The onscene representative may be present on any Coast Guard, state or local law enforcement vessel assigned to patrol the event. This temporary Special Local Regulation will encompass all U.S. waters on the Maumee River, Toledo, OH from the Craig Memorial Bridge at River Mile 3.30 to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge at River Mile 4.30. The Captain of the Port will notify the affected segments of the public of the enforcement of this Special Local Regulation by all appropriate means, including a Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local 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 these statutes and executive orders. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This temporary final 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 that Order. We conclude that this temporary final 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 E:\FR\FM\16APR1.SGM 16APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 73 / Thursday, April 16, 2015 / Rules and Regulations grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The temporary Special Local Regulation will be relatively small and be enforced for a relatively short time. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this temporary final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This temporary final rule will affect the following entities, some of which might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the portion of the Maumee River discussed above from 6 a.m. until 1 p.m. on April 18, 2015. 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 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 entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 4. Collection of Information This temporary final rule will call for no new collection of information under VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:59 Apr 15, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 20415 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 concluded 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 special local regulation issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine parade and therefore is categorically excluded under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h), of the Instruction. During the annual permitting process for this boat racing event an environmental analysis was conducted to include the effects of this special local regulation.

SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:59 Apr 15, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 with respect to this rule because waiting for a notice and comment period to run would be impracticable. The final details of this boat race were not provided from the event sponsor to the PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Coast Guard with sufficient time for the Coast Guard to publish an NPRM and solicit public comments before the occurrence of the event. Thus, waiting for a notice and comment period to run would inhibit the Coast Guard’s ability to protect the public from the hazards associated with this boat race. 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. 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 On April 25, 2015, the Wyandotte Boat Club is holding a rowing race that will require the immediate area to be clear of all vessel traffic. The rowing race will occur from 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The Captain of the Port Detroit has determined that the likely combination of recreation vessels, commercial vessels, and large numbers of spectators in close proximity to the boat race along the water pose extra and unusual hazards to public safety and property. Thus, the Captain of the Port Detroit has determined that establishing a Special Local Regulation around the location of the race’s course will help minimize risks to safety of life and property during this event. C. Discussion of Rule This rule will be enforced from 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on April 25, 2015. It will encompass all waters of the Detroit River, Trenton Channel between the following two lines going from bank-tobank: The first line is drawn directly across the channel from position 42°10′58″ N., 083°9′23″ W. (NAD 83); the second line, to the north, is drawn directly across the channel from position 42°11′44″ N., 083°8′56″ W. (NAD 83). This regulation will be enforced on April 25, 2015, from 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Two thirds of the Trenton Channel on the western portion of the regulated area, from the Wyandotte shoreline to a point approximately 670 feet east into the channel, will be designated as the race zone, while the remaining third portion on the eastern side of the regulated area, approximately 330 feet in width, will be designated as a spectator zone for pleasure crafts. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the regulated area is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Detroit or his designated on-scene representative.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
TFR Temporary Final Rule

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 an NPRM with respect to this rule 
because doing so would be impracticable. Additional details regarding 
this emergent event were received from the event sponsor after the 
annual permitting process but not received in sufficient time for the 
Coast Guard to publish an NPRM and solicit public comments before the 
occurrence of the event. Thus, waiting for a notice and comment period 
to run would inhibit the Coast Guard from protecting the public and 
vessels from hazards associated with the event.
    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

    On Saturday, April 18, 2015, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. an organized 
racing event will take place on the Maumee River where participants 
will row shell boats from the Craig Memorial Bridge at River Mile 3.30 
to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge at River Mile 4.30 on the 
Maumee River in Toledo, OH. The Captain of the Port Detroit has 
determined that this boat race, due to its close proximity to 
watercraft and being in the shipping channel, poses extra and unusual 
hazards to public safety and property, including potential collisions, 
allisions, and individuals falling into the water. Establishing a 
special local regulated area is necessary to protect persons and 
property at these events and help minimize the associated risks.

C. Discussion of Rule

    This rule will be enforced 6 a.m. until 1 p.m. on April 18, 2015. 
The Coast Guard requires that all vessels transiting the area proceed 
at a no-wake speed and maintain extra vigilance at all times.
    Vessel traffic may proceed down the West side of the river at a no 
wake speed during racing. The races will stop for oncoming freighter or 
commercial traffic. The on-scene representative or event sponsor 
representatives may permit vessels to transit the area when no race 
activity is occurring. The on-scene representative may be present on 
any Coast Guard, state or local law enforcement vessel assigned to 
patrol the event.
    This temporary Special Local Regulation will encompass all U.S. 
waters on the Maumee River, Toledo, OH from the Craig Memorial Bridge 
at River Mile 3.30 to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge at 
River Mile 4.30.
    The Captain of the Port will notify the affected segments of the 
public of the enforcement of this Special Local Regulation by all 
appropriate means, including a Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local 
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 these statutes and executive orders.

1. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This temporary final 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 that Order. We conclude that this 
temporary final 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

[[Page 20415]]

grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy 
issues. The temporary Special Local Regulation will be relatively small 
and be enforced for a relatively short time. Thus, restrictions on 
vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal.

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 certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this 
temporary final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    This temporary final rule will affect the following entities, some 
of which might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels 
intending to transit or anchor in the portion of the Maumee River 
discussed above from 6 a.m. until 1 p.m. on April 18, 2015.

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 
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 entities 
that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of 
the Coast Guard.

4. Collection of Information

    This temporary final rule will call for no 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 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 concluded 
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 special local regulation issued in 
conjunction with a regatta or marine parade and therefore is 
categorically excluded under figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h), of the 
Instruction. During the annual permitting process for this boat racing 
event an environmental analysis was conducted to include the effects of 
this special local regulation.
