Timme, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port Ohio Valley. [FR Doc. 2015–20406 Filed 8–17–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 9110–04–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, and Waterways. Coast Guard For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 33 CFR part 100 as follows: 33 CFR Part 165 PART 100—SAFETY OF LIFE ON NAVIGABLE WATERWAYS Safety Zones; Eighth Coast Guard District Annual and Recurring Safety Zones Update 1. The authority citation for part 100 continues to read as follows: AGENCY: [Docket No. USCG–2013–1060; 1625–AA00] ■ ACTION: Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1233 rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with RULES § 100.35T08–0337 Special Local Regulation; Tennessee River Mile 647.0 to 648.0, Knoxville, TN. (a) Regulated area. The following location is a regulated area: All waters of the Tennessee River beginning at mile marker 647.0 and ending at mile marker 648.0. (b) Enforcement period. This section will be enforced from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on September 4 and 5, 2015. (c) Special local regulations. (1) The general regulations contained in 33 CFR 100.35 as well as the regulations in this section apply to the Regulated Area. (2) Entry into the Regulated Area is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Ohio Valley or a designated representative. (3) The Captain of the Port Ohio Valley or a designated representative will inform the public through broadcast notice to mariners of the enforcement period for the special local regulation. (4) Persons or vessels requiring entry into or passage through the Regulated Area must request permission from the Captain of the Port Ohio Valley or a designated representative. U.S. Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley may be contacted on VHF Channel 13 or 16, or at 1–800–253–7465. (5) All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the Captain of the Port Ohio Valley and designated U.S. Coast Guard patrol personnel. On-scene U.S. Coast Guard patrol personnel include commissioned, warrant, and petty officers of the U.S. Coast Guard. 17:13 Aug 17, 2015 Jkt 235001 The Coast Guard is amending and updating its current list of recurring safety zone regulations that take place in the Eighth Coast Guard District area of responsibility (AOR). This final rule informs the public of regularly scheduled events that require additional safety measures through establishing a safety zone. Through this final rule, the list of recurring safety zones is updated with revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in the Eighth Coast Guard District AOR. When these safety zones are enforced, vessel traffic is restricted from specified areas. Additionally, this one rulemaking project reduces administrative costs involved in producing a separate rule for each individual recurring safety zone and serves to provide notice of the known recurring safety zones throughout the year. SUMMARY: 2. Temporary § 100.801T08–0337 is added to read as follows: ■ VerDate Sep<11>2014 Coast Guard, DHS. Final rule. DATES: This rule is effective August 18, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Acronyms BNM Broadcast Notice to Mariners COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register LNM Local Notice to Mariners NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard preceded this final rule with an interim final rule with request for comments. The interim rule was published in the Federal Register on April 22, 2014, [79 FR 22398]. The interim rule established separate tables for each of the Sectors operating within the Coast Guard’s Eighth District and updated the list of recurring safety zones under 33 CFR 165. Although no adverse comments were received, some comments to further update the recurring list were received. Because the interim rule and now this final rule establish separate tables for each Sector within the Eighth District, further updates will now be made by each Sector individually, impacting only their table of recurring safety zones. The list of annual and recurring safety zones occurring in the Eighth Coast Guard District AOR is published under 33 CFR 165.801. That list was originally created May 16, 2012 through a previous rulemaking, [77 FR 2876] and received no adverse comments. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the 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 define regulatory safety zones. The Coast Guard is amending and updating the safety zone regulations under 33 CFR part 165 to include the most up to date list of recurring safety zones for events held on or around navigable waters within the Eighth Coast Guard District. These events include air shows, fireworks displays, and other marine related events requiring a limited access area restricting vessel traffic for safety purposes. The list under 33 CFR 165.801 requires amending to provide new information on existing safety zones, and updating to include new safety zones expected to recur annually or biannually and to remove safety E:\FR\FM\18AUR1.SGM 18AUR1 49912 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 159 / Tuesday, August 18, 2015 / Rules and Regulations zones that are no longer required. Issuing individual regulations for each new safety zone, amendment, or removal of an existing safety zone creates unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This single rulemaking considerably reduces administrative overhead and provides the public with notice through publication in the Federal Register of the upcoming recurring safety zone regulations. 2. Impact on 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. 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 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 might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety zone areas during periods of enforcement. The safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because they are limited in scope and will be in effect for short periods of time. Before the enforcement period, the Coast Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories widely available to waterway users. Deviation from the safety zones established through this rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review 3. Assistance for Small Entities 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. This rule establishes safety zones limiting access to certain areas under 33 CFR 165 within the Eighth Coast Guard District. The effect of this rulemaking will not be significant because these safety zones are limited in scope and duration. Additionally, the public is given advance notification through local forms of notice, the Federal Register, and/or Notices of Enforcement and thus will be able to plan operations around the safety zones in advance. Deviation from the safety zones established through this rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 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, 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. C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule No adverse comments were received. Some comments regarding further updates to the recurring list were received. Because the interim rule and now this final rule establish separate tables for each Sector within the Eighth District, further updates will now be made by each sector individually, impacting only their table of recurring safety zones. No changes to the rule have been made from the interim rule and request for comments. rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with RULES D.

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 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\18AUR1.SGM 18AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 159 / Tuesday, August 18, 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. 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 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 is categorically excluded from further review under section 2.B.2 figure 2–1, paragraph 34(g) of the Commandant Instruction because it involves the establishment of safety zones. An environmental analysis checklist and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket where indicated under the ADDRESSES.

What is being addressed in this document? II. Have the requirements for approval of a SIP revision been met? III. EPA’s Response to Comments IV. What action is EPA taking? I. What is being addressed in this document? EPA is taking final action to approve a revision to the Missouri SIP received by EPA on December 17, 2013, pertaining to Missouri regulation 10 CSR 10–6.130, ‘‘Controlling Emissions During Episodes of High Air Pollution Potential.’’ This regulation specifies conditions that establish air pollution alerts and emergency alert levels, and associated procedures and emission reduction objectives statewide. This action revises the SIP by amending an existing table in the regulation, clarifying requirements of the regulation related to emission reduction plans and other provisions, and makes administrative and format changes all consistent with Federal regulations. EPA proposed approval of this rule on November 4, 2014 at 79 FR 65362. Specifically, in subsection (1)(A), the regulation is being revised to clarify the applicability of the regulation to all sources and premises throughout the entire state with emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) or Particulate Matter—10 Micron (PM10) and 2.5 Micron (PM2.5) that contribute to the air quality levels in the state. This clarification is consistent with federal regulations regarding prevention of air pollution emergency episodes found in 40 CFR part 51, subpart H. In addition, specific terms in this regulation that were previously defined in section (2) have now been removed and placed in Missouri regulation 10 CSR 10–6.020, ‘‘Definitions and Common Reference Tables.’’ In section (3) of the regulation, table A is being amended to remove the specific breakpoint values for each relevant pollutant but retains the Air Quality Index (AQI) range values and categories for each pollutant. Because the AQI breakpoint values are updated each time a National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) is revised, removing these values from the table eliminates unnecessary updates to this E:\FR\FM\18AUR1.SGM 18AUR1

measures through establishing a safety zone. Through this final rule, 
the list of recurring safety zones is updated with revisions, 
additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in 
the Eighth Coast Guard District AOR. When these safety zones are 
enforced, vessel traffic is restricted from specified areas. 
Additionally, this one rulemaking project reduces administrative costs 
involved in producing a separate rule for each individual recurring 
safety zone and serves to provide notice of the known recurring safety 
zones throughout the year.

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard preceded this final rule with an interim final rule 
with request for comments. The interim rule was published in the 
Federal Register on April 22, 2014, [79 FR 22398]. The interim rule 
established separate tables for each of the Sectors operating within 
the Coast Guard's Eighth District and updated the list of recurring 
safety zones under 33 CFR 165. Although no adverse comments were 
received, some comments to further update the recurring list were 
received. Because the interim rule and now this final rule establish 
separate tables for each Sector within the Eighth District, further 
updates will now be made by each Sector individually, impacting only 
their table of recurring safety zones.
    The list of annual and recurring safety zones occurring in the 
Eighth Coast Guard District AOR is published under 33 CFR 165.801. That 
list was originally created May 16, 2012 through a previous rulemaking, 
[77 FR 2876] and received no adverse comments.

B. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis for the 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 define regulatory safety zones. The Coast Guard is amending 
and updating the safety zone regulations under 33 CFR part 165 to 
include the most up to date list of recurring safety zones for events 
held on or around navigable waters within the Eighth Coast Guard 
District. These events include air shows, fireworks displays, and other 
marine related events requiring a limited access area restricting 
vessel traffic for safety purposes. The list under 33 CFR 165.801 
requires amending to provide new information on existing safety zones, 
and updating to include new safety zones expected to recur annually or 
biannually and to remove safety

[[Page 49912]]

zones that are no longer required. Issuing individual regulations for 
each new safety zone, amendment, or removal of an existing safety zone 
creates unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This single 
rulemaking considerably reduces administrative overhead and provides 
the public with notice through publication in the Federal Register of 
the upcoming recurring safety zone regulations.

C. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule

    No adverse comments were received. Some comments regarding further 
updates to the recurring list were received. Because the interim rule 
and now this final rule establish separate tables for each Sector 
within the Eighth District, further updates will now be made by each 
sector individually, impacting only their table of recurring safety 
zones.
    No changes to the rule have been made from the interim rule and 
request for comments.

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.
    This rule establishes safety zones limiting access to certain areas 
under 33 CFR 165 within the Eighth Coast Guard District. The effect of 
this rulemaking will not be significant because these safety zones are 
limited in scope and duration.
    Additionally, the public is given advance notification through 
local forms of notice, the Federal Register, and/or Notices of 
Enforcement and thus will be able to plan operations around the safety 
zones in advance. Deviation from the safety zones established through 
this rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests 
will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

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 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 might be 
small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit 
the safety zone areas during periods of enforcement. The safety zones 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities because they are limited in scope and will be in effect 
for short periods of time. Before the enforcement period, the Coast 
Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories widely available to waterway 
users. Deviation from the safety zones established through this 
rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will 
be considered on a case-by-case basis.

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, 
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 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.

[[Page 49913]]

11. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order

Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect

13. Technical Standards

    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not

guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have determined

individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human 
environment. This rule is categorically excluded from further review 
under section 2.B.2 figure 2-1, paragraph 34(g) of the Commandant 
Instruction because it involves the establishment of safety zones. An

determination are available in the docket where indicated under the 
ADDRESSES.
