DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Coast Guard SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ACTION: A. Basis and Purpose SUMMARY: A. Regulatory History and Information The Pierce County Sheriff Department requested that the Coast Guard establish a temporary security zone to assist in the security and safety of the 65,000 potential attendees of the U.S Open Golf Championship event, set to take place at Chambers Bay Golf Course in South Puget Sound, University Place, WA, from June 14, 2015 through June 22, 2015. On February 11, 2015, the Coast Guard proposed to establish a temporary security zone in connection with this event by publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled, ‘‘Security Zone, U.S. Open Golf Championship, South Puget Sound; University Place, WA’’ in the Federal Register (80 FR 7553). The Coast Guard received no comments in response to the NPRM, and received no requests for a public meeting. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On April 28, 2015, we published a temporary deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Lewis and Clark River, Astoria, OR’’ in the Federal Register (80 FR 23445). The temporary deviation concerned the operating schedule of the Oregon State (Lewis and Clark) highway bridge. This deviation allowed the bascule span to remain in the closed-to-navigation position to accommodate bridge maintenance activities on the bridge, and need not open to maritime traffic. This deviation from the operating regulations was authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. B. Cancellation ODOT made a contract agreement after the requested temporary deviation was approved. At the time of the initial request submitted by the ODOT Project Manager, the bridge construction crew was planning to work Monday through Friday. However, on April 10, 2015, ODOT and the construction company changed the working days to Tuesday through Saturday. ODOT noticed the discrepancy after reviewing the approval letter. As a result of this discrepancy, the times listed in the approved temporary deviation are incorrect. Dated: April 29, 2015. Steven M. Fischer, Bridge Administrator, Thirteenth Coast Guard District.

Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the proposed rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231; 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to establish security zones. The Chambers Bay Golf Course, located in the city of University Place, WA and the County of Pierce, will be the host site for the U.S. Golf Association 115th Annual U.S. Open Golf Championship from June 15, 2015 through June 21, 2015. This event will have a daily attendance of approximately 65,000 people and receives international press including multiple days of live television coverage. Due to the high number of general public in attendance and press coverage, the U.S. Open Golf Championship qualifies as a significant special event that requires a security zone. Based on past incursions at similar events at Chambers Bay Golf Course, this security zone is necessary for the size detailed in the regulation section below, 24 hours a day, for the duration of the event. The purpose of this rule is to deter and prevent potential criminal and terrorist activity against the large gathering of people at the highly publicized U.S. Open Golf Championship. This action is necessary to ensure the safety and security of participants, spectators, and event officials at the U.S. Open Golf Championship, and will do so by prohibiting any person or vessel from entering or remaining in the security E:\FR\FM\05MYR1.SGM 05MYR1 25600 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 86 / Tuesday, May 5, 2015 / Rules and Regulations 2. Impact on Small Entities zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his Designated Representative. C. Discussion of the Temporary Final Rule On February 11, 2015, the Coast Guard proposed to establish a temporary security zone in connection with the U.S. Open Golf Championship by publishing an NPRM in the Federal Register (80 FR 7553). The Coast Guard received no comments in response to the NPRM. As a result, the Coast Guard is establishing this temporary security zone as proposed in the NPRM without change. This temporary final rule establishes a temporary security zone on all waters encompassed by the following points: 47°12′50″ N., 122°35′25″ W.; thence southerly to 47°11′14″ N., 122°35′50″ W.; thence easterly to the shoreline at 47°11′14″ N., 122°35′03″ W.; thence northerly along the shoreline to 47°12′49″ N., 122°34′39″ W.; thence westerly back to the point of origin. Vessels wishing to enter the security zone must request permission for entry by contacting the Joint Harbor Operations Center at (206) 217–6001, or the on-scene patrol craft via VHF–FM Ch 13. If permission for entry is granted, vessels must proceed at a minimum speed for safe navigation. 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 no 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 affects the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to operate in the waters covered by the security zone while it is in effect. The rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because the temporary security zone would be in place for a limited period of time and maritime traffic will be able to transit around the security zone. Maritime traffic may also request permission to transit through the zone from the COTP, Puget Sound or a Designated Representative. D. Regulatory Analyses 3. Assistance for Small Entities 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. 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 small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. rljohnson on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 rule is not a significant regulatory action because the security zone will be in place for a limited period of time and vessel traffic will be able to transit around the security zone. Maritime traffic may also request permission to transit through the zone from the Captain of the Port (COTP), Puget Sound or a Designated Representative.

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 it 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 above 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. E:\FR\FM\05MYR1.SGM 05MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 86 / Tuesday, May 5, 2015 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 a temporary security zone near Chambers Bay Golf Course in South Puget Sound, University Place, WA. 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. rljohnson on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, Waterways.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Pierce County Sheriff Department requested that the Coast Guard 
establish a temporary security zone to assist in the security and 
safety of the 65,000 potential attendees of the U.S Open Golf 
Championship event, set to take place at Chambers Bay Golf Course in 
South Puget Sound, University Place, WA, from June 14, 2015 through 
June 22, 2015. On February 11, 2015, the Coast Guard proposed to 
establish a temporary security zone in connection with this event by 
publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled, ``Security 
Zone, U.S. Open Golf Championship, South Puget Sound; University Place, 
WA'' in the Federal Register (80 FR 7553). The Coast Guard received no 
comments in response to the NPRM, and received no requests for a public 
meeting.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for the proposed rule is 33 U.S.C. 1231; 50 U.S.C. 
191; 33 CFR 1.05-1, 6.04-1, 6.04-6, and 160.5; and Department of 
Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize 
the Coast Guard to establish security zones.
    The Chambers Bay Golf Course, located in the city of University 
Place, WA and the County of Pierce, will be the host site for the U.S. 
Golf Association 115th Annual U.S. Open Golf Championship from June 15, 
2015 through June 21, 2015. This event will have a daily attendance of 
approximately 65,000 people and receives international press including 
multiple days of live television coverage. Due to the high number of 
general public in attendance and press coverage, the U.S. Open Golf 
Championship qualifies as a significant special event that requires a 
security zone. Based on past incursions at similar events at Chambers 
Bay Golf Course, this security zone is necessary for the size detailed 
in the regulation section below, 24 hours a day, for the duration of 
the event.
    The purpose of this rule is to deter and prevent potential criminal 
and terrorist activity against the large gathering of people at the 
highly publicized U.S. Open Golf Championship. This action is necessary 
to ensure the safety and security of participants, spectators, and 
event officials at the U.S. Open Golf Championship, and will do so by 
prohibiting any person or vessel from entering or remaining in the 
security

[[Page 25600]]

zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his Designated 
Representative.

C. Discussion of the Temporary Final Rule

    On February 11, 2015, the Coast Guard proposed to establish a 
temporary security zone in connection with the U.S. Open Golf 
Championship by publishing an NPRM in the Federal Register (80 FR 
7553). The Coast Guard received no comments in response to the NPRM. As 
a result, the Coast Guard is establishing this temporary security zone 
as proposed in the NPRM without change.
    This temporary final rule establishes a temporary security zone on 
all waters encompassed by the following points: 47[deg]12'50'' N., 
122[deg]35'25'' W.; thence southerly to 47[deg]11'14'' N., 
122[deg]35'50'' W.; thence easterly to the shoreline at 47[deg]11'14'' 
N., 122[deg]35'03'' W.; thence northerly along the shoreline to 
47[deg]12'49'' N., 122[deg]34'39'' W.; thence westerly back to the 
point of origin.
    Vessels wishing to enter the security zone must request permission 
for entry by contacting the Joint Harbor Operations Center at (206) 
217-6001, or the on-scene patrol craft via VHF-FM Ch 13. If permission 
for entry is granted, vessels must proceed at a minimum speed for safe 
navigation.

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 rule is not a 
significant regulatory action because the security zone will be in 
place for a limited period of time and vessel traffic will be able to 
transit around the security zone. Maritime traffic may also request 
permission to transit through the zone from the Captain of the Port 
(COTP), Puget Sound or a Designated Representative.

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 no 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 affects the following 
entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners and operators 
of vessels intending to operate in the waters covered by the security 
zone while it is in effect. The rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because the 
temporary security zone would be in place for a limited period of time 
and maritime traffic will be able to transit around the security zone. 
Maritime traffic may also request permission to transit through the 
zone from the COTP, Puget Sound or a Designated Representative.

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 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 it 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 above 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 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 a temporary 
security zone near Chambers Bay Golf Course in South Puget Sound, 
University Place, WA. 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.
