Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes to update the final regulation that governs recurring special local regulations in the Seventh Coast Guard District. These regulations will apply to all recurring events held on navigable waters of the Seventh District, such as regattas, parades, and fireworks displays. This update is being proposed to ensure that all known recurring marine events are included in the final regulation and to allow respective Captains of the Port greater ease in enacting or modifying those portions of the regulation which apply to their respective areas. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before February 22, 2016. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2013–0272 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http:// www.regulations.gov. See the ‘‘Public Participation and Request for Comments’’ portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for further instructions on submitting comments. SUMMARY: If you have questions about this proposed rulemaking, call or email Eugene Stratton, Coast Guard District Seven Waterways Management, (305) 415– 6750, email Eugene.Stratton@uscg.mil or Lieutenant Brendan Sullivan, Coast FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: E:\FR\FM\21JAP1.SGM 21JAP1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 13 / Thursday, January 21, 2016 / Proposed Rules Guard District Seven Legal, U.S. Coast Guard; telephone (305) 415–6957, email Brendan.Sullivan@uscg.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security E.O. Executive order FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking Pub. L. Public Law § Section U.S.C. United States Code COTP Captain of the Port jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On January 25, 2008, 33 CFR 100.701 was published in the Federal Register (73 FR 4461) to provide permanent notice of recurring marine events in the Seventh Coast Guard District. Since that time, it was amended, (March 14, 2012 (77 FR 14962)) to remove several lines in Table 100.701 with incorrect information and to add lines regarding marine event dates, geographic locations, and corresponding regulated areas. The Coast Guard is now proposing a comprehensive revision of the table of events contained within this regulation to ensure that it accurately captures all recurring marine events in the Seventh Coast Guard District and to allow respective Captains of the Port greater ease in managing events occurring in their zones. 33 U.S.C. 1233 provides the legal basis for the Coast Guard’s authority to establish special local regulations. The purpose of the rule is to provide for the safety of life on the navigable waters of the Seventh Coast Guard District during recurring marine events. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of permanent special regulations contained in 33 CFR 100.701 for recurring marine events within the geographic boundary of the Seventh Coast Guard District. In general, the Seventh Coast Guard District is comprised of the land areas and U.S. navigable waters adjacent to South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and Puerto Rico. For a detailed description of the geographical area of the District and each Coast Guard Sector, please refer to 33 CFR 3.35. At present, there are a great number of annually recurring marine events within the Seventh Coast Guard District. These events are currently listed in a single table, with no demarcation by which to easily identify specific events. This proposed change to the regulation includes breaking the table into seven distinct sections, one for each Captain of VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:09 Jan 20, 2016 Jkt 238001 the Port (COTP) zone. Each event within each COTP section will be assigned a line number, which will result in each event being easily identifiable based on its location within a table and line and will make future editing or enforcement of any event a more streamlined process. Additionally, the Coast Guard seeks to update the regulation to ensure that it accurately reflects all recurring events within the Seventh District, to include marine events which started on a recurring basis since the last revision of this regulation and any marine events which may have been left off of the last revision. The proposed changes to this rule will reduce the administrative burden on the Coast Guard by ensuring all recurring events are represented in the table and by minimizing the need to duplicate the rulemaking process for repeat events. Additionally, when notices of enforcement are published for recurring events, these amendments will clarify the regulation and implications referenced. Generally, the public will be advised of these events and specific information, including exact dates, specific areas, and description of the regulated area, through Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. The notices will contain the following information: (i) Name and sponsoring organization of event; (ii) Expected number of participants; (iii) Course of event; (iv) Regulated area; (v) Spectator Area, if applicable; and (vi) Dates and times of event and enforcement of regulations. The Coast Guard realizes that some large scale events, such as those with many participants or spectators, or those that could severely restrict navigation or pose a significant hazard, may still require separate special local regulations or safety zones that address the specific peculiarities of the event. In those situations, the Coast Guard will create special local regulations or safety zones specifically for the event, and those regulations will supersede the proposed regulations in this rulemaking. However, the Coast Guard believes that a majority of the events held on the waters of the Seventh Coast Guard District may be adequately regulated by the requirements of this proposed rule. Due to the activities involved, the large number of participants and spectators present, and event locations, the Coast Guard has determined that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to participants or waterway users if normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the event. Possible hazards include PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 3363 risks of participant injury or death resulting from near or actual contact with non-participant vessels transiting through the regulated areas. In order to protect the safety of all waterway users including event participants and spectators, this proposed rule would establish special local regulations for the time and location of each marine event. This proposed rule will prevent vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. A designated ‘‘Patrol Commander’’ includes Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or petty officers who have been designated by the Captain of the Port to act on their behalf. Patrol Commanders may be augmented by local, State, or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the Coast Guard. Only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol vessels will be allowed to enter regulated areas unless otherwise given permission by the Patrol Commander or the Captain of the Port. Spectators may be confined to a designated spectator area to view events. Spectators may contact the Coast Guard Patrol Commander to request permission to pass through the regulated area. If permission is granted, spectators must pass directly through the regulated area at safe speed and without loitering. The Coast Guard proposes to revise 33 CFR 100.701 by adding 18 new recurring marine events as special local regulations listed in this section. Furthermore, the Coast Guard proposes to modify 14 existing regulated areas and remove 111 regulated areas that are no longer active. IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and E.O.s, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors. 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 E:\FR\FM\21JAP1.SGM 21JAP1 3364 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 13 / Thursday, January 21, 2016 / Proposed Rules jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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 following factors: (1) The regulations will be enforced for short, predefined periods of time; (2) persons and vessels may enter, transit through, anchor in or otherwise access the restricted areas with authorization from the respective Captains of the Port; (3) the Coast guard will provide advance notification of the regulations to the local community by issuing Notice of Enforcements, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and Patrol Commanders. Moreover, in the majority of cases, vessels will be able to safely transit around restricted areas. 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 above 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:09 Jan 20, 2016 Jkt 238001 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, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. F. Environment We have 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 amending and republication of PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 a table of recurring marine events for special regulations issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine parade. The events themselves are permitted by the Coast Guard before this regulation would be utilized and the permitting process involves a thorough environmental review. Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of Commandant Instruction M16475.lD. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist and 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. 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. V. Public Participation and Request for Comments We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, and will consider all comments and material received during the comment period. Your comment can help shape the outcome of this rulemaking. If you submit a comment, please include the docket number for this rulemaking, indicate the specific section of this document to which each comment applies, and provide a reason for each suggestion or recommendation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In our September 2, 2003 proposed rule (68 FR 52169), we proposed to remove the scarlet-chested parakeet (Neophema splendida) and the turquoise parakeet (Neophema PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 pulchella) from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife under the Act, because the endangered designation no longer correctly reflected the current conservation status of these birds. Our review of the status of the species at the time showed that the wild populations of these species were stable and increasing, with more than 20,000 breeding-age turquoise parakeets and 10,000 breeding-age scarlet-chested parakeets found throughout their range. Furthermore, trade in wild caught specimens was strictly limited, and the species’ were protected through domestic regulation within the range country (Australia), as well as through additional national and international treaties and laws. Currently, the Act prohibits the import, export and interstate and foreign commerce of these species, unless the individual can prove that the otherwise prohibited act enhances the propagation or survival of the species, or it is for scientific research. Removal of these species from the List means that the protections of the Act will no longer apply. However, protections under the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Fauna and Flora the Lacey Act and the Wild Bird Conservation Act (for wildcaught specimens only) would remain unchanged. For more information on previous Federal actions concerning the scarletchested and turquoise parakeet, or information regarding the species’ biology, status, distribution, and habitat, refer to the proposed rule published in the Federal Register on September 2, 2003 (68 FR 52169), which is available online at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/ granule/FR-2003-09-02/03-22225, or by mail from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Falls Church, VA (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT).

Special Local Regulations; Marine Events in the Seventh Coast 
Guard District

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes to update the final regulation that 
governs recurring special local regulations in the Seventh Coast Guard 
District. These regulations will apply to all recurring events held on 
navigable waters of the Seventh District, such as regattas, parades, 
and fireworks displays. This update is being proposed to ensure that 
all known recurring marine events are included in the final regulation 
and to allow respective Captains of the Port greater ease in enacting 
or modifying those portions of the regulation which apply to their 
respective areas.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before February 22, 2016.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-
2013-0272 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. See the ``Public Participation and Request for 
Comments'' portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for further 
instructions on submitting comments.

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    On January 25, 2008, 33 CFR 100.701 was published in the Federal 
Register (73 FR 4461) to provide permanent notice of recurring marine 
events in the Seventh Coast Guard District. Since that time, it was 
amended, (March 14, 2012 (77 FR 14962)) to remove several lines in 
Table 100.701 with incorrect information and to add lines regarding 
marine event dates, geographic locations, and corresponding regulated 
areas. The Coast Guard is now proposing a comprehensive revision of the 
table of events contained within this regulation to ensure that it 
accurately captures all recurring marine events in the Seventh Coast 
Guard District and to allow respective Captains of the Port greater 
ease in managing events occurring in their zones.
    33 U.S.C. 1233 provides the legal basis for the Coast Guard's 
authority to establish special local regulations. The purpose of the 
rule is to provide for the safety of life on the navigable waters of 
the Seventh Coast Guard District during recurring marine events.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard proposes to revise the list of permanent special 
regulations contained in 33 CFR 100.701 for recurring marine events 
within the geographic boundary of the Seventh Coast Guard District. In 
general, the Seventh Coast Guard District is comprised of the land 
areas and U.S. navigable waters adjacent to South Carolina, Georgia, 
Florida, and Puerto Rico. For a detailed description of the 
geographical area of the District and each Coast Guard Sector, please 
refer to 33 CFR 3.35.
    At present, there are a great number of annually recurring marine 
events within the Seventh Coast Guard District. These events are 
currently listed in a single table, with no demarcation by which to 
easily identify specific events. This proposed change to the regulation 
includes breaking the table into seven distinct sections, one for each 
Captain of the Port (COTP) zone. Each event within each COTP section 
will be assigned a line number, which will result in each event being 
easily identifiable based on its location within a table and line and 
will make future editing or enforcement of any event a more streamlined 
process.
    Additionally, the Coast Guard seeks to update the regulation to 
ensure that it accurately reflects all recurring events within the 
Seventh District, to include marine events which started on a recurring 
basis since the last revision of this regulation and any marine events 
which may have been left off of the last revision.
    The proposed changes to this rule will reduce the administrative 
burden on the Coast Guard by ensuring all recurring events are 
represented in the table and by minimizing the need to duplicate the 
rulemaking process for repeat events. Additionally, when notices of 
enforcement are published for recurring events, these amendments will 
clarify the regulation and implications referenced. Generally, the 
public will be advised of these events and specific information, 
including exact dates, specific areas, and description of the regulated 
area, through Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners. The notices will contain the following information:
    (i) Name and sponsoring organization of event;
    (ii) Expected number of participants;
    (iii) Course of event;
    (iv) Regulated area;
    (v) Spectator Area, if applicable; and
    (vi) Dates and times of event and enforcement of regulations.
    The Coast Guard realizes that some large scale events, such as 
those with many participants or spectators, or those that could 
severely restrict navigation or pose a significant hazard, may still 
require separate special local regulations or safety zones that address 
the specific peculiarities of the event. In those situations, the Coast 
Guard will create special local regulations or safety zones 
specifically for the event, and those regulations will supersede the 
proposed regulations in this rulemaking. However, the Coast Guard 
believes that a majority of the events held on the waters of the 
Seventh Coast Guard District may be adequately regulated by the 
requirements of this proposed rule.
    Due to the activities involved, the large number of participants 
and spectators present, and event locations, the Coast Guard has 
determined that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to 
participants or waterway users if normal vessel traffic were to 
interfere with the event. Possible hazards include risks of participant 
injury or death resulting from near or actual contact with non-
participant vessels transiting through the regulated areas. In order to 
protect the safety of all waterway users including event participants 
and spectators, this proposed rule would establish special local 
regulations for the time and location of each marine event.
    This proposed rule will prevent vessels from entering, transiting, 
mooring or anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated 
areas during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the 
Captain of the Port, or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. A 
designated ``Patrol Commander'' includes Coast Guard commissioned, 
warrant, or petty officers who have been designated by the Captain of 
the Port to act on their behalf. Patrol Commanders may be augmented by 
local, State, or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the 
Coast Guard.
    Only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol 
vessels will be allowed to enter regulated areas unless otherwise given 
permission by the Patrol Commander or the Captain of the Port. 
Spectators may be confined to a designated spectator area to view 
events. Spectators may contact the Coast Guard Patrol Commander to 
request permission to pass through the regulated area. If permission is 
granted, spectators must pass directly through the regulated area at 
safe speed and without loitering.
    The Coast Guard proposes to revise 33 CFR 100.701 by adding 18 new 
recurring marine events as special local regulations listed in this 
section. Furthermore, the Coast Guard proposes to modify 14 existing 
regulated areas and remove 111 regulated areas that are no longer 
active.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize 
our analyses based on a number of these statutes and E.O.s, and we 
discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

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

[[Page 3364]]

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 following 
factors: (1) The regulations will be enforced for short, predefined 
periods of time; (2) persons and vessels may enter, transit through, 
anchor in or otherwise access the restricted areas with authorization 
from the respective Captains of the Port; (3) the Coast guard will 
provide advance notification of the regulations to the local community 
by issuing Notice of Enforcements, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and 
Patrol Commanders. Moreover, in the majority of cases, vessels will be 
able to safely transit around restricted areas.

 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 above 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, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

F. Environment

    We have 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 amending 
and republication of a table of recurring marine events for special 
regulations issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine parade. The 
events themselves are permitted by the Coast Guard before this 
regulation would be utilized and the permitting process involves a 
thorough environmental review. Normally such actions are categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of 
Commandant Instruction M16475.lD. A preliminary environmental analysis 
checklist and 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.

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.

V. Public Participation and Request for Comments
