Regulatory History and Information The Captain of the Port (COTP) Ohio Valley is proposing to establish a special local regulation for all waters of the Ohio River, surface to bottom, extending from Ohio River mile 469.5 to 471.2 at Cincinnati, OH July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015. This special local regulation is necessary to protect persons and property from potential damage and safety hazards during the ‘‘86th MLB All-Star Week/Game’’, which may involve high density of boater traffic in the river miles specified. This proposed special local regulation is intended to temporarily restrict vessel traffic in a portion of the Ohio River during this event and implement a moving security zone for certain vessel traffic within the special local regulated zone. There is no E:\FR\FM\19MYP1.SGM 19MYP1 28570 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 96 / Tuesday, May 19, 2015 / Proposed Rules regulatory history related to this proposed special local regulation or the event triggering a need for the proposed special local regulation. rljohnson on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS C. Basis and Purpose The Coast Guard’s authority for establishing a special local regulation for marine events is contained at 33 U.S.C. 1233. Major League Baseball is holding the ‘‘86th All-Star Week/Game’’ July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015. This event is planned to take place at the Great American Ballpark in the vicinity of the waters of the Ohio River, at Cincinnati, OH. Based on the need for additional safety measures to protect persons and property during this event on the waterway, the Coast Guard proposes to establish a special local regulation on specified waters of the Ohio River. The proposed special local regulation would be in effect from July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015 and would encompass all waters of the Ohio River, mile 469.5– 471.2. D. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Captain of the Port (COTP) Ohio Valley is proposing to establish a special local regulation for all waters of the Ohio River, surface to bottom, extending from Ohio River mile 469.5 to 471.2 at Cincinnati, OH July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015. This special local regulation is necessary to protect persons and property from potential damage and safety hazards during the ‘‘86th MLB All-Star Week/Game’’, an event which will likely involve a high density of boater traffic in the river miles specified. This proposed special local regulation is intended to temporarily restrict vessel traffic in a portion of the Ohio River and implement a moving security zone for certain vessel traffic within the special local regulated zone during this event in order to promote the safety of life and property on the navigable waterway. There is no regulatory history related to this proposed special local regulation or the event triggering a need for the proposed special local regulation. The effect of this proposed rule will be to restrict general navigation during the event. Vessels intending to transit the Ohio River through the designated mile markers will only be allowed to transit the area when the COTP Ohio Valley, or a designated representative, has deemed it safe to do so or at the completion of the event each day. E. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:25 May 18, 2015 Jkt 235001 Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes or executive orders. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This proposed 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 proposed special local regulation restricts transit on the Ohio River from mile 469.5 to 471.2, for a short duration of four days; Broadcast Notices to Mariners and Local Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of this special local regulation so that they may plan accordingly for this short restriction on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the restricted area. 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 proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This proposed rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit mile marker 469.5 to 471.2 on the Ohio River, from July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015. The special local regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This special local regulation will be in effect for a limited duration for a period of four days. Although, the regulation would apply to the entire width of the river, traffic would be allowed to pass through the regulated area with the permission of the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative or at the completion of the event each day. Broadcast Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of this special local regulation so that they may plan PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 accordingly for temporary restrictions on transit. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. 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 proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 4. Collection of Information This proposed 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 proposed 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 E:\FR\FM\19MYP1.SGM 19MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 96 / Tuesday, May 19, 2015 / Proposed Rules aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 From Environmental Health Risks We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. 11. Indian Tribal Governments This proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it would 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 proposed rule is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. rljohnson on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 13. Technical Standards This proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:25 May 18, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 made a preliminary determination 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 proposed rule involves a special local regulation involving a high media event and the potential for high boating traffic. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary 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 proposed rule.

B. Regulatory History and Information

    The Captain of the Port (COTP) Ohio Valley is proposing to 
establish a special local regulation for all waters of the Ohio River, 
surface to bottom, extending from Ohio River mile 469.5 to 471.2 at 
Cincinnati, OH July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015. This special local 
regulation is necessary to protect persons and property from potential 
damage and safety hazards during the ``86th MLB All-Star Week/Game'', 
which may involve high density of boater traffic in the river miles 
specified. This proposed special local regulation is intended to 
temporarily restrict vessel traffic in a portion of the Ohio River 
during this event and implement a moving security zone for certain 
vessel traffic within the special local regulated zone. There is no

[[Page 28570]]

regulatory history related to this proposed special local regulation or 
the event triggering a need for the proposed special local regulation.

C. Basis and Purpose

    The Coast Guard's authority for establishing a special local 
regulation for marine events is contained at 33 U.S.C. 1233.
    Major League Baseball is holding the ``86th All-Star Week/Game'' 
July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015. This event is planned to take 
place at the Great American Ballpark in the vicinity of the waters of 
the Ohio River, at Cincinnati, OH. Based on the need for additional 
safety measures to protect persons and property during this event on 
the waterway, the Coast Guard proposes to establish a special local 
regulation on specified waters of the Ohio River. The proposed special 
local regulation would be in effect from July 10, 2015 through July 14, 
2015 and would encompass all waters of the Ohio River, mile 469.5-
471.2.

D. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Captain of the Port (COTP) Ohio Valley is proposing to 
establish a special local regulation for all waters of the Ohio River, 
surface to bottom, extending from Ohio River mile 469.5 to 471.2 at 
Cincinnati, OH July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015. This special local 
regulation is necessary to protect persons and property from potential 
damage and safety hazards during the ``86th MLB All-Star Week/Game'', 
an event which will likely involve a high density of boater traffic in 
the river miles specified. This proposed special local regulation is 
intended to temporarily restrict vessel traffic in a portion of the 
Ohio River and implement a moving security zone for certain vessel 
traffic within the special local regulated zone during this event in 
order to promote the safety of life and property on the navigable 
waterway. There is no regulatory history related to this proposed 
special local regulation or the event triggering a need for the 
proposed special local regulation.
    The effect of this proposed rule will be to restrict general 
navigation during the event. Vessels intending to transit the Ohio 
River through the designated mile markers will only be allowed to 
transit the area when the COTP Ohio Valley, or a designated 
representative, has deemed it safe to do so or at the completion of the 
event each day.

E. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed special 
local regulation restricts transit on the Ohio River from mile 469.5 to 
471.2, for a short duration of four days; Broadcast Notices to Mariners 
and Local Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of this 
special local regulation so that they may plan accordingly for this 
short restriction on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission 
from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the 
restricted area.
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 
proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    This proposed rule will affect the following entities, some of 
which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels 
intending to transit mile marker 469.5 to 471.2 on the Ohio River, from 
July 10, 2015 through July 14, 2015. The special local regulation will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities for the following reasons. This special local regulation will 
be in effect for a limited duration for a period of four days. 
Although, the regulation would apply to the entire width of the river, 
traffic would be allowed to pass through the regulated area with the 
permission of the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative or at 
the completion of the event each day. Broadcast Notices to Mariners 
will also inform the community of this special local regulation so that 
they may plan accordingly for temporary restrictions on transit.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.
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 proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 
entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any 
policy or action of the Coast Guard.
4. Collection of Information
    This proposed 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 proposed 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

[[Page 28571]]

aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.
8. Taking of Private Property
    This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 From Environmental Health Risks
    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Executive Order 13045, 
Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not 
create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.
11. Indian Tribal Governments
    This proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments, because it would 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 proposed 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 proposed rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we 
did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.
14. Environment
    We have analyzed this proposed 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 made a preliminary determination 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 proposed rule 
involves a special local regulation involving a high media event and 
the potential for high boating traffic. This rule is categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the 
Commandant Instruction. A preliminary 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 proposed rule.
