Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis Previously, the Coast Guard promulgated safety zones for most of the events associated with this rule and received no public comments. The most recently promulgated rulemaking was on May 24, 2013 when the Coast Guard published a Final Rule, entitled, ‘‘Safety Zones and Special Local Regulations; Recurring Marine Events in Captain of the Port Sector Long Island Sound Zone’’ in the Federal Register (78 FR 31402). The purpose of this rulemaking is to carry out three related actions: (1) Establishing new necessary safety zones, (2) removing safety zones that are no longer needed, and (3) updating and reorganizing existing regulations for ease of use and reduction of administrative overhead. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority 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 regulatory safety zones. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Coast Guard proposes to revise section 33 CFR 165.151 ‘‘Safety Zones; Fireworks Displays, Air Shows and Swim Events in the Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone’’ by establishing one new permanent safety zone, removing twenty-four existing safety zones, and modifying twenty existing safety zones. By proposing these permanent regulation updates, we PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 32695 are providing the public with an opportunity to comment on these changes. This rulemaking limits the unnecessary burden of continually establishing temporary rules every year for events that occur on an annual basis. (1) Establishing New Marine Event Regulated Areas This rule proposes to establish one new permanent marine event safety zone under 33 CFR 165.151. The events listed in the revised 33 CFR 165.151 table are all fireworks displays throughout the Sector Long Island Sound Captain of the Port Zone. The event created by this rule is 5.1 Bridgeport Bluefish May Fireworks. Event location and details are listed below in the text of the regulation. Due to the pyrotechnics detonation and burning debris, a safety zone is needed to protect both spectators and participants from the safety potential hazards. This rule would permanently establish a safety zone that restricts vessel movement around the location of the marine event to reduce the safety risks associated with it. During the enforcement period of the safety zone, persons and vessels would be prohibited from entering, transiting through, remaining, anchoring, or mooring within the safety zone unless specifically authorized by the COTP or the designated representative. Persons and vessels would be able to request authorization to enter, transit through, remain, anchor, or moor within the safety zone by contacting the COTP Sector Long Island Sound by telephone at (203) 468–4401, or designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, remain, anchor, or moor within the regulated area is granted, all persons and vessels receiving authorization would be required to comply with the instructions of the COTP or designated representative. The Coast Guard COTP Sector Long Island Sound or designated representatives would enforce the safety zone. These designated representatives are comprised of commissioned, warrant, and petty officers of the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other federal, state and local agencies in the enforcement of these safety zones. (2) Remove Old Safety Zones That Are No Longer Needed This rulemaking proposes to remove the following twenty-four safety zones from Table 1 to § 165.151: 5.1 Jones Beach Air Show, as the regulation will be moved to 33 CFR 100.100 at the Table to § 100.100. 5.2 Greenport Spring Fireworks, as the event has been E:\FR\FM\24MYP1.SGM 24MYP1 mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with PROPOSALS 32696 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 100 / Tuesday, May 24, 2016 / Proposed Rules discontinued. 7.2 Cancer Center for Kids Fireworks, as the event has not been held since 2011 and the sponsoring organization, The Friends of the Cancer Center for Kids, has confirmed that they do not intend to hold the event again in the foreseeable future. 7.10 City of New Haven Fireworks, as the event has not been held since 2008 and the sponsoring organization, the City of New Haven, has confirmed that they do not intend to hold the event again in the foreseeable future. 7.14 Fund in the Sun Fireworks, as the event has not been held since 2010 and the sponsoring organization, the Shelter Island Yacht Club, has confirmed that they do not intend to hold the event again in the foreseeable future. 7.19 Jones Beach State Park Fireworks, as the regulation will be moved to the 33 CFR 100.100 at the Table to § 100.100. 7.20 Madison Cultural Arts Fireworks, as the event has been discontinued. 7.22 Patchogue Chamber of Commerce Fireworks, as the event has been discontinued. 7.26 Village of Quoque Foundering Anniversary Fireworks, as the event has not been held since 2009 and the sponsoring organization, the Village of Quoque, has confirmed that they do not intend to hold the event again in the foreseeable future. 7.28 Great South Bay Music Festival Fireworks, as the event has been discontinued. 7.31 Clam Shell Foundation Fireworks, as the regulation will be moved to the table to 100.100. 7.32 Town of North Hempstead Bar Beach Fireworks, as the event is not in Sector Long Island Sound’s AOR. 7.41 Niantic Bay Fireworks, as the event has been discontinued. 7.43 North Bay Fourth of July Fireworks, as the event has been discontinued. 7.46 Irwin family 4th of July, as the event has been discontinued. 7.47 Westbrook July Celebration, as this is a duplicate entry of 7.3 City of Westbrook, CT July Celebration Fireworks. 8.1 Village of Bellport Fireworks, as this is not a reoccurring event. 8.2 Taste of Italy Fireworks, as this is not a reoccuring event. 8.5 Shelter Island Yacht Club Fireworks, as the event has been discontinued. 9.2 Town of Islip Labor Day Fireworks, as the event has been discontinued. 9.5 Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church Fireworks, as the event is not in Sector Long Island Sound’s AOR. 9.6 Port Washington Sons of Italy Fireworks, as the event is not in Sector Long Island Sound’s AOR. 11.1 Charles W.

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 designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under E.O. 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. The Coast Guard determined that this proposed rulemaking is not a significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The safety zones are of limited duration and vessels may transit the navigable waterways outside of the safety zones. Persons or vessels requiring entry into the safety zones may be authorized to do so by the COTP Sector Long Island Sound or designated representative. Advanced public notifications will also be made to local mariners through appropriate means, which may include but is not limited to Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 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 E:\FR\FM\24MYP1.SGM 24MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 100 / Tuesday, May 24, 2016 / Proposed Rules 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. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with PROPOSALS 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:13 May 23, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 rulemaking 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 the establishment of safety zones. 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. 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.

Safety Zones, Recurring Marine Events Held in the Coast Guard

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes to add, delete, and modify safety

Sound Captain of the Port Zone. When enforced, these proposed safety 
zones would restrict vessels from portions of water areas during

expedite public notification and ensure the protection of the maritime 
public and event participants from the hazards associated with certain 
maritime events. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    Previously, the Coast Guard promulgated safety zones for most of 
the events associated with this rule and received no public comments. 
The most recently promulgated rulemaking was on May 24, 2013 when the 
Coast Guard published a Final Rule, entitled, ``Safety Zones and 
Special Local Regulations; Recurring Marine Events in Captain of the 
Port Sector Long Island Sound Zone'' in the Federal Register (78 FR 
31402).
    The purpose of this rulemaking is to carry out three related 
actions: (1) Establishing new necessary safety zones, (2) removing 
safety zones that are no longer needed, and (3) updating and 
reorganizing existing regulations for ease of use and reduction of 
administrative overhead.
    The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority 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 regulatory safety 
zones.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Coast Guard proposes to revise section 33 CFR 165.151 ``Safety 
Zones; Fireworks Displays, Air Shows and Swim Events in the Captain of 
the Port Long Island Sound Zone'' by establishing one new permanent 
safety zone, removing twenty-four existing safety zones, and modifying 
twenty existing safety zones. By proposing these permanent regulation 
updates, we are providing the public with an opportunity to comment on 
these changes. This rulemaking limits the unnecessary burden of 
continually establishing temporary rules every year for events that 
occur on an annual basis.

(1) Establishing New Marine Event Regulated Areas

    This rule proposes to establish one new permanent marine event 
safety zone under 33 CFR 165.151. The events listed in the revised 33 
CFR 165.151 table are all fireworks displays throughout the Sector Long 
Island Sound Captain of the Port Zone. The event created by this rule 
is 5.1 Bridgeport Bluefish May Fireworks. Event location and details 
are listed below in the text of the regulation. Due to the pyrotechnics 
detonation and burning debris, a safety zone is needed to protect both 
spectators and participants from the safety potential hazards. This 
rule would permanently establish a safety zone that restricts vessel 
movement around the location of the marine event to reduce the safety 
risks associated with it.
    During the enforcement period of the safety zone, persons and 
vessels would be prohibited from entering, transiting through, 
remaining, anchoring, or mooring within the safety zone unless 
specifically authorized by the COTP or the designated representative. 
Persons and vessels would be able to request authorization to enter, 
transit through, remain, anchor, or moor within the safety zone by 
contacting the COTP Sector Long Island Sound by telephone at (203) 468-
4401, or designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. If 
authorization to enter, transit through, remain, anchor, or moor within 
the regulated area is granted, all persons and vessels receiving 
authorization would be required to comply with the instructions of the 
COTP or designated representative.
    The Coast Guard COTP Sector Long Island Sound or designated 
representatives would enforce the safety zone. These designated 
representatives are comprised of commissioned, warrant, and petty 
officers of the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard may be assisted by other 
federal, state and local agencies in the enforcement of these safety 
zones.

(2) Remove Old Safety Zones That Are No Longer Needed

    This rulemaking proposes to remove the following twenty-four safety 
zones from Table 1 to Sec.  165.151: 5.1 Jones Beach Air Show, as the 
regulation will be moved to 33 CFR 100.100 at the Table to Sec.

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 designated a ``significant 
regulatory action,'' under E.O. 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM has not 
been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.
    The Coast Guard determined that this proposed rulemaking is not a 
significant regulatory action for the following reasons: The safety 
zones are of limited duration and vessels may transit the navigable 
waterways outside of the safety zones. Persons or vessels requiring 
entry into the safety zones may be authorized to do so by the COTP 
Sector Long Island Sound or designated representative.
    Advanced public notifications will also be made to local mariners 
through appropriate means, which may include but is not limited to 
Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

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

[[Page 32697]]

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 
rulemaking 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 the 
establishment of safety zones. 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.

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.
