SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: * Dated: May 20, 2016. R.V. Timme, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port Ohio Valley. ACTION: Parkersburg, WV .... II. Background Information and Regulatory History On January 25, 2016, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Sector Ohio Valley Annual and Recurring Special Local Regulations Update (81 FR 3976). That proposed rulemaking included expanding the date for this event and related special local regulation in the permanent list of recurring events under 33 CFR 100.801, Table 1, from 3 days to 4 days during the second or third weekend in June. There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action. The NPRM received no adverse comments and the comment period closed April 25, 2016. However, during the comment period for the NPRM, the sponsor of the Hadi Shrine/Evansville Freedom Festival Air Show informed us that the air show portion of the event would continue to take place for only 3 days, including a practice day. Therefore, there is no need to extend the effective period from 3 to 4 days for this event. However, for the 2016 occurrence the festival dates fall on the fourth weekend in June, so this temporary final PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 rule is being issued for the 2016 occurrence only. It is impracticable to publish an NPRM at this time because this temporary final rule is necessary to establish the special local regulation for this year’s occurrence beginning June 24, 2016. 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. Delaying this rule to provide a full 30 days notice is unnecessary as this event is a recurring event advertised to, and planned on, by the local community and waterway users that are familiar with this location on the Ohio River. Delaying this rule would also be contrary to public interest because immediate action is necessary for the safety of life during an air show taking place over this navigable waterway. Broadcast Notices to Mariners (BNM) and information sharing with the waterway users will update mariners of the restrictions, requirements and enforcement times during this event. 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 Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the air show starting June 24, 2016 will be a safety concern for all waters of the Ohio River, surface to bottom, extending from mile 791.0 to 795.0. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of life on the navigable waters in the temporary regulated area before, during, and after the Evansville Freedom Festival Air Show. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a special local regulation from June 24 through June 26, 2016. The special local regulation will cover all waters of the Ohio River, E:\FR\FM\16JNR1.SGM 16JNR1 39192 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 116 / Thursday, June 16, 2016 / Rules and Regulations surface to bottom, extending from mile 791.0 to 795.0. Transit into and through this area is prohibited from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day beginning June 24, 2016 through June 26, 2016. The duration of the special local regulation is intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled air show and fireworks displays. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the special local regulation without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. Deviations request will be considered and reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The COTP Ohio Valley may be contacted by telephone at 1–800–253– 7475 or can be reached by VHF–FM channel 16. Public notifications will be made to the local maritime community prior to the event through the Local Notice to Mariners, and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 by the Office of Management and Budget. This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, duration, and time-of-year of the special local regulation. The temporary special local regulation will only be in effect for approximately seven hours each day. The Coast Guard expects minimum adverse impact to mariners from the special local regulation’s activation as the event has been advertised to the public. Also, mariners may request authorization from the COTP Ohio Valley or the designated representatives to transit the special local regulations. B. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:07 Jun 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 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 special local regulation 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 PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 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 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 lasting less than seven hours a day that will prohibit entry on all waters of the Ohio River, surface to bottom, extending from mile 791.0 to 795.0. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. 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.

DHS Department of Homeland Security
FR Federal Register
NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking
Sec.  Section
U.S.C. United States Code

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    On January 25, 2016, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) titled Sector Ohio Valley Annual and Recurring 
Special Local Regulations Update (81 FR 3976). That proposed rulemaking 
included expanding the date for this event and related special local 
regulation in the permanent list of recurring events under 33 CFR 
100.801, Table 1, from 3 days to 4 days during the second or third 
weekend in June. There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited 
comments on our proposed regulatory action. The NPRM received no 
adverse comments and the comment period closed April 25, 2016. However, 
during the comment period for the NPRM, the sponsor of the Hadi Shrine/
Evansville Freedom Festival Air Show informed us that the air show 
portion of the event would continue to take place for only 3 days, 
including a practice day. Therefore, there is no need to extend the 
effective period from 3 to 4 days for this event. However, for the 2016 
occurrence the festival dates fall on the fourth weekend in June, so 
this temporary final rule is being issued for the 2016 occurrence only. 
It is impracticable to publish an NPRM at this time because this 
temporary final rule is necessary to establish the special local 
regulation for this year's occurrence beginning June 24, 2016.
    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. Delaying this rule to 
provide a full 30 days notice is unnecessary as this event is a 
recurring event advertised to, and planned on, by the local community 
and waterway users that are familiar with this location on the Ohio 
River. Delaying this rule would also be contrary to public interest 
because immediate action is necessary for the safety of life during an 
air show taking place over this navigable waterway. Broadcast Notices 
to Mariners (BNM) and information sharing with the waterway users will 
update mariners of the restrictions, requirements and enforcement times 
during this event.

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 Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that 
potential hazards associated with the air show starting June 24, 2016 
will be a safety concern for all waters of the Ohio River, surface to 
bottom, extending from mile 791.0 to 795.0. The purpose of this rule is 
to ensure safety of life on the navigable waters in the temporary 
regulated area before, during, and after the Evansville Freedom 
Festival Air Show.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a special local regulation from June 24 
through June 26, 2016. The special local regulation will cover all 
waters of the Ohio River,

[[Page 39192]]

surface to bottom, extending from mile 791.0 to 795.0. Transit into and 
through this area is prohibited from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day 
beginning June 24, 2016 through June 26, 2016. The duration of the 
special local regulation is intended to ensure the safety of vessels 
and these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled air 
show and fireworks displays. No vessel or person will be permitted to 
enter the special local regulation without obtaining permission from 
the COTP or a designated representative. Deviations request will be 
considered and reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The COTP Ohio Valley 
may be contacted by telephone at 1-800-253-7475 or can be reached by 
VHF-FM channel 16. Public notifications will be made to the local 
maritime community prior to the event through the Local Notice to 
Mariners, and Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

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 by the Office of Management and 
Budget.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, duration, and time-of-year of the special local regulation. 
The temporary special local regulation will only be in effect for 
approximately seven hours each day. The Coast Guard expects minimum 
adverse impact to mariners from the special local regulation's 
activation as the event has been advertised to the public. Also, 
mariners may request authorization from the COTP Ohio Valley or the 
designated representatives to transit the special local regulations.

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 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 
special local regulation 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 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 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 lasting less than seven hours 
a day that will prohibit entry on all waters of the Ohio River, surface 
to bottom, extending from mile 791.0 to 795.0. It is categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the 
Commandant Instruction.

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.
