Executive order FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking Pub. L. Public Law § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On December 31, 2014, the City of Jacksonville submitted a marine event application to the Coast Guard for the Jacksonville Sea and Sky Spectacular air show that will take place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on October 22 through October 25, 2015. The air show will consist of various flight demonstrations over the Atlantic Ocean, just offshore from Jacksonville Beach, FL. Over the years, there have been unfortunate instances of aircraft mishaps that involve crashing during performances at various air shows around the world. During aircraft crashes, there is typically a wide area of scattered debris that can damage property or cause significant injury or death to the public observing the air shows. The Captain of the Port (COTP) Jacksonville has determined that a safety zone is necessary to protect the general public from hazards associated with aerial flight demonstrations. The purpose of the rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels and persons during the air show on the navigable waters of the Atlantic Ocean in Jacksonville Beach, FL. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The COTP proposes to establish a safety zone from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on October 22 through October 25, 2015. The safety zone will encompass all waters within an area approximately three nautical miles parallel to the shoreline, and one half mile out into the Atlantic Ocean offshore from Jacksonville Beach, Florida. The duration of the zone is intended to ensure the safety of the public and these navigable waters before, during, and after the aerial flight demonstrations. No vessel or person would be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. The regulatory text the Coast Guard is proposing appears at the end of this document. IV. Regulatory Analyses The Coast Guard developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. A summary of the statutory analyses, analyses of E.O.s, and discussion of First Amendment rights of protestors is included below. A. Regulatory Planning and Review E.O.s 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This NPRM has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under E.O. 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, duration, and time-of-day of the safety zone. Vessel traffic would be able to safely transit around this safety zone which would impact a small designated area of the Atlantic Ocean for eight and a half hours on each of the three days the air show is occurring. Moreover, the Coast Guard would issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the zone, and the rule would allow vessels to seek permission to enter the zone. E:\FR\FM\08SEP1.SGM 08SEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 173 / Tuesday, September 8, 2015 / Proposed Rules B. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 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 would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A, this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. 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. 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 section. 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. C. Collection of Information This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments A rule has implications for federalism under E.O. 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 have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:37 Sep 04, 2015 Jkt 235001 principles and preemption requirements described in E.O. 13132. Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 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. If you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above. E. 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 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, the Coast Guard discusses the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. F. Environment The Coast Guard 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 (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 safety zone that will help protect the general public from hazards associated with aerial flight demonstrations occurring during the air show, and will be in effect from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on October 22 through October 25, 2015. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of Commandant Instruction M16475.lD. 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. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 53755 G. 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.

for certain waters of the Atlantic Ocean off Jacksonville Beach, 
Florida during the Jacksonville Sea and Sky Spectacular air show. The 
event is scheduled to take place from October 22 through October 25,

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    On December 31, 2014, the City of Jacksonville submitted a marine 
event application to the Coast Guard for the Jacksonville Sea and Sky 
Spectacular air show that will take place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on 
October 22 through October 25, 2015. The air show will consist of 
various flight demonstrations over the Atlantic Ocean, just offshore 
from Jacksonville Beach, FL. Over the years, there have been 
unfortunate instances of aircraft mishaps that involve crashing during 
performances at various air shows around the world. During aircraft 
crashes, there is typically a wide area of scattered debris that can 
damage property or cause significant injury or death to the public 
observing the air shows. The Captain of the Port (COTP) Jacksonville 
has determined that a safety zone is necessary to protect the general 
public from hazards associated with aerial flight demonstrations.
    The purpose of the rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels 
and persons during the air show on the navigable waters of the Atlantic 
Ocean in Jacksonville Beach, FL. The Coast Guard proposes this 
rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The COTP proposes to establish a safety zone from 9 a.m. to 5:30 
p.m. on October 22 through October 25, 2015. The safety zone will 
encompass all waters within an area approximately three nautical miles 
parallel to the shoreline, and one half mile out into the Atlantic 
Ocean offshore from Jacksonville Beach, Florida. The duration of the 
zone is intended to ensure the safety of the public and these navigable 
waters before, during, and after the aerial flight demonstrations. No 
vessel or person would be permitted to enter the safety zone without 
obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. The 
regulatory text the Coast Guard is proposing appears at the end of this 
document.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    The Coast Guard developed this proposed rule after considering 
numerous statutes and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. A 
summary of the statutory analyses, analyses of E.O.s, and discussion of 
First Amendment rights of protestors is included below.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    E.O.s 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and 
benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is 
necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. 
E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. This NPRM has not been designated a ``significant 
regulatory action,'' under E.O. 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM has not 
been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, duration, and time-of-day of the safety zone. Vessel traffic 
would be able to safely transit around this safety zone which would 
impact a small designated area of the Atlantic Ocean for eight and a 
half hours on each of the three days the air show is occurring. 
Moreover, the Coast Guard would issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners 
via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the zone, and the rule would allow 
vessels to seek permission to enter the zone.

[[Page 53755]]

B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 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 would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the 
safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section 
IV.A, this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact 
on any vessel owner or operator.
    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.
    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 
section. 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.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of 
information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-
3520).

D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    A rule has implications for federalism under E.O. 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 
have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in E.O. 13132.
    Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
E.O. 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. If 
you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or 
Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section above.

E. 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 proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, the Coast Guard discusses the effects of 
this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

F. Environment

    The Coast Guard analyzed this proposed rule under Department of 
Homeland Security Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant
