Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 12:56 Aug 27, 2015 Jkt 235001 The Lehigh Valley Drawbridge, mile 4.3, across Newark Bay has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 35 feet at mean high water and 39 feet at mean low water. The existing bridge operating regulations are found at 33 CFR 117.5. The waterway has commercial oil barge traffic of various sizes and recreational vessels. Consolidated Rail Corporation requested this temporary deviation from the normal operating schedule to facilitate essential maintenance repairs. Under this temporary deviation, the Lehigh Valley Drawbridge will operate according to the schedule below: a. From 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. on September 13, 2015 the bridge will not open to marine traffic. b. From 7 a.m. through 5 p.m., on September 14, 2015 the bridge will not open for marine traffic. c. Should a rain date be necessary, from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. on September 20, 2015 the bridge will not open to marine traffic. The bridge will not be able to open in the event of an emergency. There is no alternate route for vessel traffic; however, vessels that can pass under the closed draws during this closure may do so at any time. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterway through our Local Notice to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: August 19, 2015. C.J.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Table of Acronyms DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking A. Regulatory History and Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a E:\FR\FM\28AUR1.SGM 28AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 167 / Friday, August 28, 2015 / Rules and Regulations notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule. This event was originally scheduled to occur between July 2 and 4, 2015. However, due to high water, the event was rescheduled. The Coast Guard did not receive notice of the new event date until July 17, 2015 and could not complete the full notice and comment process prior to the date of the event. However, due to the potential hazards associated with fireworks displays, a safety zone is required to protect persons and property on the waterway during the displays. Completing the notice and comment period is impracticable because it would unnecessarily delay this rule and the immediate safety measures it provides. Additionally, delaying the effective date for this safety zone would be contrary to public interest. For the same reasons, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Providing a full 30 days notice would be impracticable and would unnecessarily delay the effective date of this rule. Delaying the effective date would also be contrary to public interest since immediate action is necessary to protect persons and property from potential hazards associated with fireworks displays over or on the Upper Mississippi River. Lhorne on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES B. Basis and Purpose A fireworks display is scheduled for August 29, 2015. This display will feature fireworks being launched from a barge located in the navigable channel between miles 180.0 and 180.5 on the Upper Mississippi River in the St. Louis Harbor. The Coast Guard determined that a safety zone is necessary to keep persons and property clear of any potential hazards associated with the launching of fireworks on or over the waterway. The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 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, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define safety zones. The purpose of the rule is to establish the necessary temporary safety zone to provide protection for persons and property, including spectators, commercial and recreational vessels, and others that may be in the area during the noticed fireworks display times from the hazards associated with the fireworks display on and over the waterway. VerDate Sep<11>2014 12:56 Aug 27, 2015 Jkt 235001 C. Discussion of the Final Rule The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on August 29, 2015, for the Lumiere Place fireworks display. The fireworks will be launched from a barge located within the navigational channel and the safety zone will include all waters between Upper Mississippi River miles 180.0 and 180.5. The Coast Guard will enforce the temporary safety zone and may be assisted by other federal, state and local agencies and the Coast Guard Auxiliary. During the periods of enforcement, no vessels may transit into, through, or remain within this Coast Guard safety zone. Deviation from this safety zone may be requested by contacting the COTP Upper Mississippi River or other designated representative. Deviations will be considered on a caseby-case basis. D. 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. This temporary final rule establishes a safety zone that will be enforced for a limited time period. During the enforcement period, vessels are prohibited from entering into or remaining within the safety zone unless specifically authorized by the COTP Upper Mississippi River or other designated representative. Based on the location, limited safety zone size, and short duration of the enforcement period, this rule does not pose a significant regulatory impact. Additionally, notice of this safety zone or any changes in the planned schedule will be made via Broadcast Notice to Mariners, Local Notices to Mariners, and/or Safety Marine Information Broadcasts as appropriate. Deviation from this rule may be requested from the COTP Sector Upper Mississippi River and will be considered on a caseby-case basis. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 52189 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 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 safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This safety zone would be activated, and thus subject to enforcement, for only one hour. Although the safety zone would apply to the entire width of the river, traffic may be allowed to pass through the zone with the permission of the COTP. Before the activation of the zone, we would issue maritime advisories widely available to users of the river. 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 E:\FR\FM\28AUR1.SGM 28AUR1 52190 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 167 / Friday, August 28, 2015 / Rules and Regulations 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. 12. Energy Effects 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 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. 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 establishment of a temporary safety zone to protect persons and property from potential hazards associated with the scheduled Lumiere Place Fireworks display taking place on or over the Upper Mississippi River. 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. 10. Protection of Children List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 165 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.

Indian Tribal Governments PART 165—REGULATED NAVIGATION AREAS AND LIMITED ACCESS AREAS 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.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

A. Regulatory History and Information

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior 
notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 
4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This 
provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and 
opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those 
procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest.'' Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a

[[Page 52189]]

notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule. This 
event was originally scheduled to occur between July 2 and 4, 2015. 
However, due to high water, the event was rescheduled. The Coast Guard 
did not receive notice of the new event date until July 17, 2015 and 
could not complete the full notice and comment process prior to the 
date of the event. However, due to the potential hazards associated 
with fireworks displays, a safety zone is required to protect persons 
and property on the waterway during the displays. Completing the notice 
and comment period is impracticable because it would unnecessarily 
delay this rule and the immediate safety measures it provides. 
Additionally, delaying the effective date for this safety zone would be 
contrary to public interest.
    For the same reasons, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard 
finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 
30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Providing a full 30 
days notice would be impracticable and would unnecessarily delay the 
effective date of this rule. Delaying the effective date would also be 
contrary to public interest since immediate action is necessary to 
protect persons and property from potential hazards associated with 
fireworks displays over or on the Upper Mississippi River.

B. Basis and Purpose

    A fireworks display is scheduled for August 29, 2015. This display 
will feature fireworks being launched from a barge located in the 
navigable channel between miles 180.0 and 180.5 on the Upper 
Mississippi River in the St. Louis Harbor. The Coast Guard determined 
that a safety zone is necessary to keep persons and property clear of 
any potential hazards associated with the launching of fireworks on or 
over the waterway.
    The legal basis and authorities for this rule are found in 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, which 
collectively authorize the Coast Guard to establish and define safety 
zones.
    The purpose of the rule is to establish the necessary temporary 
safety zone to provide protection for persons and property, including 
spectators, commercial and recreational vessels, and others that may be 
in the area during the noticed fireworks display times from the hazards 
associated with the fireworks display on and over the waterway.

C. Discussion of the Final Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone from 9:30 
p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on August 29, 2015, for the Lumiere Place fireworks 
display. The fireworks will be launched from a barge located within the 
navigational channel and the safety zone will include all waters 
between Upper Mississippi River miles 180.0 and 180.5. The Coast Guard 
will enforce the temporary safety zone and may be assisted by other 
federal, state and local agencies and the Coast Guard Auxiliary. During 
the periods of enforcement, no vessels may transit into, through, or 
remain within this Coast Guard safety zone. Deviation from this safety 
zone may be requested by contacting the COTP Upper Mississippi River or 
other designated representative. Deviations will be considered on a 
case-by-case basis.

D. 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. This temporary final 
rule establishes a safety zone that will be enforced for a limited time 
period. During the enforcement period, vessels are prohibited from 
entering into or remaining within the safety zone unless specifically 
authorized by the COTP Upper Mississippi River or other designated 
representative. Based on the location, limited safety zone size, and 
short duration of the enforcement period, this rule does not pose a 
significant regulatory impact. Additionally, notice of this safety zone 
or any changes in the planned schedule will be made via Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners, Local Notices to Mariners, and/or Safety Marine 
Information Broadcasts as appropriate. Deviation from this rule may be 
requested from the COTP Sector Upper Mississippi River and 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 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 safety zone would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons. This 
safety zone would be activated, and thus subject to enforcement, for 
only one hour. Although the safety zone would apply to the entire width 
of the river, traffic may be allowed to pass through the zone with the 
permission of the COTP. Before the activation of the zone, we would 
issue maritime advisories widely available to users of the river.

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

[[Page 52190]]

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

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 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 involves establishment of a temporary safety 
zone to protect persons and property from potential hazards associated 
with the scheduled Lumiere Place Fireworks display taking place on or 
over the Upper Mississippi River. 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.
