SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking SNPRM Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard published an NPRM in the Federal Register entitled ‘‘Safety Zones; Fireworks Displays in the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port Zone’’ on June 18, 2014. The Coast Guard published a Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the Federal Register on February 24, 2015 with a comment period ending on March 26, 2015 (see 80 FR 9673). The SNPRM was published to correct coordinates of 19 of the fireworks displays and to clarify that the coordinates of the safety zones are approximate. Specifically, the SNPRM corrected the location of the safety zones for the following fireworks events: Cinco de Mayo, Tri-City Chamber of Commerce, Cedco Inc., Florence Independence Day Celebration, Ilwaco July 4th Independence Day at the Port, East County 4th of July, City of St. Helens 4th of July, Hood River 4th of July, Rufus 4th of July, Maritime Heritage Festival, Lynch Picnic, July 4th Party at the Port of Gold Beach, Roseburg Hometown 4th of July, Newport 4th of July, The Mill Casino Independence Day, Westport 100th Anniversary, Westport 4th of July, The 4th of July at Pekin Ferry, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Light the Night. Additionally, we found a duplicate entry for the Hood River 4th of July event. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this rule is: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 50 U.S.C. 191, 33 CFR PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29949 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 regulatory safety zones for safety and environmental purposes. The safety zones are being implemented to help ensure the safe navigation of maritime traffic in the Sector Columbia River Area of Responsibility during fireworks displays. Fireworks displays create hazardous conditions for the maritime public because of the large number of vessels that congregate near the displays, as well as the noise, falling debris, and explosions that occur during the event. Because firework discharge sites can pose a hazard to the maritime public, these safety zones are necessary in order to restrict vessel movement and reduce vessel congregation in the proximity of the firework discharge sites. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule Two comments to the SNPRM were submitted and no requests for a public meeting were received by the Coast Guard. Both comments were submitted by the fireworks display provider and requested corrections to two locations. The first comment stated that the location of the Astoria Regatta Firework display has changed to a different location from which was published in the SNPRM. The Coast Guard has verified this position with the firework coordinator and replaced the previous geographic latitude and longitude. The second comment stated that the location of the Astoria-Warrenton 4th of July Firework display has changed to a different location from which was published in the SNPRM. The Coast Guard has verified this position with the firework coordinator and replaced the previous geographic latitude and longitude. D. Discussion of the Final Rule The Final Rule modifies the safety zone by incorporating new areas that encompass waters within a 450 yard radius of the launch site at the approximate locations listed in the tables. Additionally, The Final Rule amends the positions of the following fireworks displays in order to accurately reflect the approximate locations of the fireworks displays: E:\FR\FM\26MYR1.SGM 26MYR1 29950 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 100 / Tuesday, May 26, 2015 / Rules and Regulations Event name (typically) Event location Date of event Latitude Cinco de Mayo Fireworks Display ..............

Finally, the final rule places the regulated areas into a table format, rather than a narrative format used previously. E. 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 wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 Coast Guard bases this finding on the fact that the safety zones listed will be in place for a limited period of time and are minimal in duratioN 2. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered the impact of this rule on small entities. 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:03 May 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 day day day day day day day day day day day day in in in in in in in in in in in in July .................. July .................. July .................. July .................. July .................. July .................. July .................. July .................. June ................. July .................. July .................. October ............ This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to operate in the area covered by the safety zone. The rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because the safety zones will only be in effect for a limited period of time. Additionally, vessels can still transit through the zone with the permission of the Captain of the Port. Before the effective period, we will publish advisories in the Local Notice to Mariners available to users of the river. Maritime traffic will be able to schedule their transits around the safety zone. 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 (Public Law 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 N N N N N N N N N N N N ......... ......... ......... ......... ......... ......... ......... ......... ......... ......... ......... ......... 46°11′44″ N ......... 46°11′44″ N .........

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 E:\FR\FM\26MYR1.SGM 26MYR1 29951 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 100 / Tuesday, May 26, 2015 / Rules and Regulations 12. Energy Effects 8. Taking of Private Property This 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 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 would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 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 would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, 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. or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule would not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 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 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 rule involves the amendment and addition of safety zones in 33 CFR 165.1315. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, Waterways. For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard is amending 33 CFR part 165 as follows: PART 165—REGULATED NAVIGATION AREAS AND LIMITED ACCESS AREAS 1. The authority citation for part 165 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. 2. Revise § 165.1315 to read as follows: ■ § 165.1315 Safety Zone; Annual Fireworks Displays within the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port Zone. (a) Safety zones.

Safety Zones; Fireworks Displays in the Sector Columbia River 
Captain of the Port Zone

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is adding twenty three new fireworks display 
safety zones at various locations in the Sector Columbia River Captain 
of the Port zone. The Coast Guard amended the regulatory text to 
clarify that the coordinates for all safety zones are approximate. The 
Coast Guard corrected the locations of nine existing and ten new 
fireworks events in the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port zone. 
In addition, the Coast Guard is changing the format of the existing 
regulation by incorporating a fireworks event table for ease of use.

DATES: This rule is effective June 25, 2015.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
SNPRM Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard published an NPRM in the Federal Register entitled 
``Safety Zones; Fireworks Displays in the Sector Columbia River Captain 
of the Port Zone'' on June 18, 2014. The Coast Guard published a 
Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the Federal Register on 
February 24, 2015 with a comment period ending on March 26, 2015 (see 
80 FR 9673). The SNPRM was published to correct coordinates of 19 of 
the fireworks displays and to clarify that the coordinates of the 
safety zones are approximate. Specifically, the SNPRM corrected the 
location of the safety zones for the following fireworks events: Cinco 
de Mayo, Tri-City Chamber of Commerce, Cedco Inc., Florence 
Independence Day Celebration, Ilwaco July 4th Independence Day at the 
Port, East County 4th of July, City of St. Helens 4th of July, Hood 
River 4th of July, Rufus 4th of July, Maritime Heritage Festival, Lynch 
Picnic, July 4th Party at the Port of Gold Beach, Roseburg Hometown 4th 
of July, Newport 4th of July, The Mill Casino Independence Day, 
Westport 100th Anniversary, Westport 4th of July, The 4th of July at 
Pekin Ferry, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Light the Night. 
Additionally, we found a duplicate entry for the Hood River 4th of July 
event.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for this 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 regulatory safety zones for safety and environmental 
purposes.
    The safety zones are being implemented to help ensure the safe 
navigation of maritime traffic in the Sector Columbia River Area of 
Responsibility during fireworks displays. Fireworks displays create 
hazardous conditions for the maritime public because of the large 
number of vessels that congregate near the displays, as well as the 
noise, falling debris, and explosions that occur during the event. 
Because firework discharge sites can pose a hazard to the maritime 
public, these safety zones are necessary in order to restrict vessel 
movement and reduce vessel congregation in the proximity of the 
firework discharge sites.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    Two comments to the SNPRM were submitted and no requests for a 
public meeting were received by the Coast Guard. Both comments were 
submitted by the fireworks display provider and requested corrections 
to two locations. The first comment stated that the location of the 
Astoria Regatta Firework display has changed to a different location 
from which was published in the SNPRM. The Coast Guard has verified 
this position with the firework coordinator and replaced the previous 
geographic latitude and longitude. The second comment stated that the 
location of the Astoria-Warrenton 4th of July Firework display has 
changed to a different location from which was published in the SNPRM. 
The Coast Guard has verified this position with the firework 
coordinator and replaced the previous geographic latitude and 
longitude.

D. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The Final Rule modifies the safety zone by incorporating new areas 
that encompass waters within a 450 yard radius of the launch site at 
the approximate locations listed in the tables.
    Additionally, The Final Rule amends the positions of the following 
fireworks displays in order to accurately reflect the approximate 
locations of the fireworks displays:

    Finally, the final rule places the regulated areas into a table 
format, rather than a narrative format used previously.

E. 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 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 Coast Guard bases 
this finding on the fact that the safety zones listed will be in place 
for a limited period of time and are minimal in duratioN

2. Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered the impact of this rule on small entities. 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 may affect the following entities, some of which may be 
small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to 
operate in the area covered by the safety zone. The rule will not have 
a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
because the safety zones will only be in effect for a limited period of 
time. Additionally, vessels can still transit through the zone with the 
permission of the Captain of the Port. Before the effective period, we 
will publish advisories in the Local Notice to Mariners available to 
users of the river. Maritime traffic will be able to schedule their 
transits around the safety zone.
    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 (Public Law 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. 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

[[Page 29951]]

aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule would not result 
in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

8. Taking of Private Property

    This 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 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 would not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
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 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 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 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 rule involves the amendment and 
addition of safety zones in 33 CFR 165.1315. This rule is categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) 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 rule.

List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165

    Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements, Security measures, Waterways.

    For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard is

 the Night Fireworks Display.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (b) Special requirements. Fireworks barges or launch sites on land 
used in locations stated in this rule shall display a sign. The sign 
will be affixed to the port and starboard side of the barge or mounted 
on a post 3 feet above ground level when on land and in close proximity 
to the shoreline facing the water labeled ``FIREWORKS-DANGER-STAY 
AWAY.'' This will provide on-scene notice that the safety zone is, or 
will, be enforced on that day. This notice will consist of a diamond 
shaped sign, 4 foot by 4 foot, with a 3 inch orange retro-reflective 
border. The word ``DANGER'' shall be 10 inch black block letters 
centered on the sign with the words ``FIREWORKS'' and ``STAY AWAY'' in 
6 inch black block letters placed above and below the word ``DANGER'' 
respectively on a white background. An on-scene patrol vessel may 
enforce these safety zones at least 1 hour prior to the start and 1 
hour after the conclusion of the fireworks display.
    (c) Notice of enforcement. These safety zones will be activated and 
thus subject to enforcement, under the following conditions: the Coast 
Guard must receive an Application for Marine Event for each fireworks 
display; and, the Captain of the Port will cause notice of the 
enforcement of these safety zones to be made by all appropriate means 
to provide notice to the affected segments of the public as 
practicable, in accordance with 33 CFR 165.7(a). The Captain of the 
Port will issue a Local Notice to Mariners notifying the public of 
activation and suspension of enforcement of these safety zones. 
Additionally, an on-scene Patrol Commander may be appointed to enforce 
the safety zones by limiting the transit of non-participating vessels 
in the designated areas described above.
    (d) Enforcement period. This rule will be enforced at least one 
hour before and one hour after the duration of the event each day a 
barge or launch site with a ``FIREWORKS-DANGER-STAY AWAY'' sign is 
located within any of the above designated safety zone locations and 
meets the criteria established in paragraphs (a), (b), and (c).
    (e) Regulations. In accordance with the general regulations in 33 
CFR part 165, subpart C, no person may enter or remain in the safety 
zone created in this section or bring, cause to be brought, or allow to 
remain in the safety zone created in this section any vehicle, vessel, 
or object unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his 
designated representative. The Captain of the Port may be assisted by 
other Federal, State, or local agencies with the enforcement of the 
safety zone.
    (f) Authorization. All vessel operators who desire to enter the 
safety zone must obtain permission from the Captain of the Port or 
Designated Representative by contacting either the on-scene patrol 
craft on VHF Ch 13 or Ch 16 or the Coast Guard Sector Columbia River 
Command Center via telephone at (503) 861-6211.

    Dated: May 1, 2015.

Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port, Sector Columbia River.
