AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of the Navy (DoN) is amending its certifications and exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972, as amended (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (DAJAG) (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has determined that USS GERALD R.

Each event and its corresponding regulatory history are discussed below. Jones Beach (Air Show): A special local regulation was established in 2015 for the Jones Beach Air Show event when the Coast Guard issued a final rule entitled, ‘‘Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Marine Events held in the Sector Long Island Sound Captain of the Port Zone’’. This rulemaking was published on May 18, 2015 in the Federal Register (80 FR 28176). The Harvard-Yale Regatta is a reoccurring marine event with regulatory history and is cited in 33 CFR 100.100(1.1). This event has been included in this rule due to deviation from the cite date.

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 an NPRM with respect to this rule because doing so would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. There is insufficient time to publish an NPRM, take public comments, and issue a final rule before these events take place. Thus, waiting for a comment period to run would inhibit the Coast Guard’s mission to keep the ports and waterways safe. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), and for the same reasons stated in the preceding paragraph, the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The legal basis for this temporary rule is 33 U.S.C. 1233. The COTP Sector LIS has determined that the special local regulations established by this temporary final rule are necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waterways during these events. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes two special local regulations for one regatta and one air show. The locations of these regulated areas are as follows: E:\FR\FM\07JNR1.SGM 07JNR1

    This amendment provides notice that the DAJAG (Admiralty and 
Maritime Law), under authority delegated by the Secretary of the Navy, 
has certified that USS GERALD R. FORD (CVN 78) is a vessel of the Navy 
which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply 
with the following specific provisions of 72 COLREGS without 
interfering with its special function as a naval ship: Annex I, 
paragraph 2(g), pertaining to the placement of the sidelights above the 
hull; Annex I, paragraph 3(a), pertaining to the placement of the 
forward masthead light in the forward quarter of the ship; Rule 21(a), 
pertaining to the placement of the masthead lights over the fore and 
aft centerline of the ship; and, Rule 21 (b), pertaining to the 
placement of the side lights arc of visibility. The DAJAG (Admiralty

located in closest possible compliance with the applicable 72 COLREGS 
requirements.
    Moreover, it has been determined, in accordance with 32 CFR parts 
296 and 701, that publication of this amendment for public comment
