The proposed amendment would revise the wording of the existing restricted area description to accurately describe the installed light configuration, update contact information and increase vessel transiting area. Procedural Requirements a. Review Under Executive Order 12866. The proposed rule is issued with respect to a military function of the Department of Defense and the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply. b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This proposed rule has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Public Law 96–354). The Regulatory Flexibility Act generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice-and-comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (i.e., small businesses and small governments). The restricted area is necessary to protect users of this waterway during naval operations. The restricted area will only be closed for brief amounts of time (usually no more than 20 minutes) when it is activated. Unless information is obtained to the contrary during the comment period, the Corps certifies that the proposed rule would have no significant economic impact on the public. After considering the economic impacts of this proposed restricted area VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Jun 19, 2015 Jkt 235001 regulation on small entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. Due to the administrative nature of this action and because there is no intended change in the use of the area, the Corps expects that these amendments to regulation, if adopted, will not have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement will not be required. An environmental assessment will be prepared after the public notice period is closed and all comments have been received and considered. d. Unfunded Mandates Act. This proposed rule does not contain a Federal mandate that may result in expenditures of $100 million or more for State, local, and Tribal governments, in the aggregate, or the private sector in any one year. Therefore, this proposed rule is not subject to the requirements of Sections 202 and 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA). The proposed rule contains no regulatory requirements that might significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, the proposed rule is not subject to the requirements of Section 203 of UMRA. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 334 Danger zones, Navigation (water), Restricted areas, Waterways.

A flashing amber beacon means that the area is closed to all vessels and to await a clear signal.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David Olson, Headquarters, 
Operations and Regulatory Community of Practice, Washington, DC at 202-
761-4922 or Ms. Linda Speerstra, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska 
District, Regulatory Division, at 907-747-0658.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities in Section 7 of 
the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 Stat 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and 
Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat 892; 33 
U.S.C. 3), the Corps is proposing to amend the regulation at 33 CFR 
part 334 by amending existing language applicable to restricted area in 
the waters of the West Arm Behm Canal, Naval Surface Warfare Center, 
Ketchikan Alaska; Area No. 5. The proposed amendment would revise the 
wording of the existing restricted area description to accurately 
describe the installed light configuration, update contact information 
and increase vessel transiting area.

Procedural Requirements

    a. Review Under Executive Order 12866. The proposed rule is issued 
with respect to a military function of the Department of Defense and 
the provisions of Executive Order 12866 do not apply.
    b. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This proposed rule 
has been reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (Public Law 96-
354). The Regulatory Flexibility Act generally requires an agency to 
prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to 
notice-and-comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative 
Procedure Act or any other statute unless the agency certifies that the 
rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities (i.e., small businesses and small 
governments). The restricted area is necessary to protect users of this 
waterway during naval operations. The restricted area will only be 
closed for brief amounts of time (usually no more than 20 minutes) when 
it is activated. Unless information is obtained to the contrary during 
the comment period, the Corps certifies that the proposed rule would 
have no significant economic impact on the public. After considering 
the economic impacts of this proposed restricted area regulation on 
small entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant 
impact on a substantial number of small entities.
    c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. Due to the 
administrative nature of this action and because there is no intended 
change in the use of the area, the Corps expects that these amendments 
to regulation, if adopted, will not have a significant impact on the 
quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an 
environmental impact statement will not be required. An environmental 
assessment will be prepared after the public notice period is closed 
and all comments have been received and considered.
    d. Unfunded Mandates Act. This proposed rule does not contain a 
Federal mandate that may result in expenditures of $100 million or more 
for State, local, and Tribal governments, in the aggregate, or the 
private sector in any one year. Therefore, this proposed rule is not 
subject to the requirements of Sections 202 and 205 of the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act (UMRA). The proposed rule contains no regulatory 
requirements that might significantly or uniquely affect small 
governments. Therefore, the proposed rule is not subject to the 
requirements of Section 203 of UMRA.

Facility Control Officer of their expected time of arrival, speed and 
intentions. For vessels not equipped with radio equipment, the Navy 
shall signal with flashing beacon lights whether passage is prohibited 
and when it is safe to pass through the area. A flashing amber beacon 
means that the area is closed to all vessels and to await a clear 
signal. The flashing amber beacon not lighted is the clear signal and 
indicates that vessels may proceed through the area. Each closure of 
the area by the Navy will normally not exceed 20 minutes.
    (ii) When Area No. 5 restrictions are in place, vessels may operate 
within 1000 yards of the shoreline at speeds no greater than 5 knots in
