SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:59 May 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code On March 16, 2016, the Lake Race Steering Committee notified the Coast Guard that it will be hosting a powerboat race from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on June 4, 2016. In response, on April 20, 2016, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Special Local Regulation; Lake of the Ozarks, Lakeside, MO (81 FR 23223). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this powerboat race. During the comment period that ended May 5, 2016, we received no comments. We are issuing this rule, and under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making it effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. On March 16, 2016, the Coast Guard was notified of the event being held and an NPRM with a 15 day comment period was published on April 20, 2016. Though we are not providing a full 30 day notice period, the Coast Guard did provide notice and opportunity to comment through the NPRM process and is now providing less than 30 days notice before the final rule goes into effect on June 4, 2016. It is impracticable to provide a full 30-days notice because this rule must be effective June 4, 2016. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1233. The Captain of the Port (COTP) Upper Mississippi River has determined that potential hazards associated with the powerboat race are a safety concern. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the special local regulation before, during, and after the scheduled event.

Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM published April 20, 2016. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. This rule establishes a special local regulation from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on June 4, 2016, designating the race course and location of spectator areas. Vessels transiting near the course will be restricted to transiting at the slowest safe speed. This special local regulation covers navigable waters on the Lake of the Ozarks Osage Branch between miles 0 and 4. The Coast Guard has also posted a map depicting the location and restricted areas for this special local regulation in the docket. Six anchorage areas for spectators are designated and are also shown on the map and labeled as A through F. This map may be viewed as indicated under the ADDRESSES section. The duration of the regulation is intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after the power boat race, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. No vessel or person will be permitted to deviate from the special local regulation without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. V. 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 and Executive Orders, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors. A. Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 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. Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, it has not been reviewed E:\FR\FM\13MYR1.SGM 13MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 93 / Friday, May 13, 2016 / Rules and Regulations ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES by the Office of Management and Budget. This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, and duration of the special local regulation. Vessel traffic will be able to safely transit around the race course and spectators will have designated locations to view the race. Moreover, the Coast Guard is including event information in the Local Notice to Mariners, and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to deviate from the regulation. 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 received no comments from the Small Business Administration on this 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. While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section V.A. above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. 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 section. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:42 May 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. 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). D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments 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 have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. Also, 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. If you believe this rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. 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 rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. F. 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 (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 a PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29769 special local regulation designating the race course, location of spectator areas, and location for vessels to transit during the race at slowest safe speed. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) 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. 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 FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Cape May County, Department of Public Works, that owns and operates the Grassy Sound Channel Bridge, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations to provide for the safety of runners during ‘‘The Wild Half’’ annual half marathon event. The bridge is a bascule draw bridge and has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 15 feet above mean high water. The current operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.721. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on May 15, 2016. The Coast Guard has carefully considered the nature and volume of vessel traffic on the waterway in publishing this temporary deviation. Vessels able to safely pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies and the New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway is an alternate route for vessels transiting the area. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operators can arrange their transit 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: May 10, 2016. Hal R. Pitts, Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    On March 16, 2016, the Lake Race Steering Committee notified the 
Coast Guard that it will be hosting a powerboat race from 9 a.m. until 
6 p.m. on June 4, 2016. In response, on April 20, 2016, the Coast Guard 
published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Special Local 
Regulation; Lake of the Ozarks, Lakeside, MO (81 FR 23223). There we 
stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed 
regulatory action related to this powerboat race. During the comment 
period that ended May 5, 2016, we received no comments.
    We are issuing this rule, and under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast 
Guard finds that good cause exists for making it effective less than 30 
days after publication in the Federal Register. On March 16, 2016, the 
Coast Guard was notified of the event being held and an NPRM with a 15 
day comment period was published on April 20, 2016. Though we are not 
providing a full 30 day notice period, the Coast Guard did provide 
notice and opportunity to comment through the NPRM process and is now 
providing less than 30 days notice before the final rule goes into 
effect on June 4, 2016. It is impracticable to provide a full 30-days 
notice because this rule must be effective June 4, 2016.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 
1233. The Captain of the Port (COTP) Upper Mississippi River has 
determined that potential hazards associated with the powerboat race 
are a safety concern. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of 
vessels and the navigable waters in the special local regulation 
before, during, and after the scheduled event.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM published April 
20, 2016. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from 
the proposed rule in the NPRM. This rule establishes a special local 
regulation from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on June 4, 2016, designating the 
race course and location of spectator areas. Vessels transiting near 
the course will be restricted to transiting at the slowest safe speed. 
This special local regulation covers navigable waters on the Lake of 
the Ozarks Osage Branch between miles 0 and 4. The Coast Guard has also 
posted a map depicting the location and restricted areas for this 
special local regulation in the docket. Six anchorage areas for 
spectators are designated and are also shown on the map and labeled as 
A through F. This map may be viewed as indicated under the ADDRESSES 
section. The duration of the regulation is intended to ensure the 
safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after 
the power boat race, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. No vessel or 
person will be permitted to deviate from the special local regulation 
without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated 
representative.

V. 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 and Executive Orders, and we 
discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 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. Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of 
quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing 
rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has not been designated 
a ``significant regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 12866. 
Accordingly, it has not been reviewed

[[Page 29769]]

by the Office of Management and Budget.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, and duration of the special local regulation. Vessel traffic 
will be able to safely transit around the race course and spectators 
will have designated locations to view the race. Moreover, the Coast 
Guard is including event information in the Local Notice to Mariners, 
and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to deviate from the 
regulation.

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 received no comments from the Small Business 
Administration on this 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.
    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the 
safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section 
V.A. above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on 
any vessel owner or operator.
    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 
section.
    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. 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).

D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    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 have 
determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 
13132.
    Also, 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. If 
you believe this rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, 
please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT 
section.

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 rule will not result in 
such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

F. 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 (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 a special local regulation designating the race course, 
location of spectator areas, and location for vessels to transit during 
the race at slowest safe speed. It is categorically excluded from 
further review under paragraph 34(h) 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.

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
