SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:07 Jun 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 The Captain of the Port (COTP) Ohio Valley is establishing, amending, and updating its current list of recurring special local regulations codified under 33 CFR 100.801 in Table no. 1, for the COTP Ohio Valley zone. 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). During the comment period that ended April 25, 2016, the Coast Guard received information regarding dates for three events from the event sponsors. This information is discussed in this document. 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. Though we are not providing a full 30day delay in the effective date, the Coast Guard did provide notice and the opportunity to comment through the NPRM process and is now providing as much notice as possible before the first recurring event enforcement is required on June 19. It is impracticable to provide a full 30-days notice because this rule must be effective June 19, 2016 to accommodate the first event. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard’s authority for establishing a special local regulation is contained at 33 U.S.C. 1233. The Coast Guard is amending and updating the special local regulations under 33 CFR part 100 to include the most up to date list of recurring special local regulations for events held on or around navigable waters within the Sector Ohio Valley AOR. These events include marine parades, boat races, swim events, and others. The current list under 33 CFR 100.801 requires amending to provide new information on existing special local regulations, include new special local regulations expected to recur annually or biannually, and to remove special local regulations that are no longer required. Issuing individual regulations for each new special local regulation, amendment, or removal of an existing special local regulation creates unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This rulemaking reduces administrative overhead and provides the public with notice through PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39187 publication in the Federal Register of the upcoming recurring special local regulations. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received information regarding three recurring events from the event sponsors during the NPRM comment period. This information requires changes to the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. Those changes are as follows: Change 1: The sponsor of the Owensboro Air show requested a change to the proposed event date as listed in Table 1, Line 54. Instead of occurring 3 days during the first or second weekend in September, the new date will be published in the final rule as: 3 days during one of the last three weekends in September. This change was requested to enable the Air Show to take place without conflicting with other events occurring in September. Change 2: The sponsor of the REV3 Triathlon requested a change to the proposed date as listed in Table 1, Line 4. Instead of occurring 1 day during the first or second weekend in May, the new date will be published in the final rule as: 1 day during the third or fourth weekend in May starting in 2016. This change was requested due to scheduling conflicts with other events. This final rule was not published in time for the May 22, 2016 occurrence of this event. Therefore, a temporary final rule for this event was issued on May 20, 2016. That rule is accessible as indicated under ADDRESSES. Change 3: The sponsor of the HadiShrine/Evansville Freedom Festival Air Show informed the Coast Guard that the proposed expanded date period from 3 to 4 days was no longer needed and the currently published date period of 3 days fits the air show portion of their event. Therefore, the date for this event as listed in Table 1, Line 46 will remain: 3 days during the second or third weekend in June. The event sponsor also informed the Coast Guard that the 2016 occurrence of this event fell on the fourth weekend in June. Therefore, a separate temporary final rule is being issued to establish the necessary special local regulation on June 24–26, 2016. That rule is available as indicated under ADDRESSES. These requested changes are based on the individual sponsors’ efforts to coordinate events alongside others in the local community. In some instances, these changes have been advertised to and planned on by the local community, and minimally impact the dates of 3 events as listed in the NPRM. These E:\FR\FM\16JNR1.SGM 16JNR1 39188 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 116 / Thursday, June 16, 2016 / Rules and Regulations revised dates are also considered within the current environmental review. Therefore, the Coast Guard is publishing this final rule with the requested date changes. All proposed new additions to and removals from the recurring list remain the same as in the NPRM. 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. The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this rule to be minimal, and therefore a full regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. This rule establishes special local regulations limiting access to certain areas under 33 CFR part 100 within Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR. The effect of this rulemaking will not be significant because these special local regulations are limited in scope and duration. Additionally, the public is given advance notification through local forms of notice, the Federal Register, and/or Notices of Enforcement and thus will be able to plan around the special local regulations in advance. Deviation from the special local regulations established through this proposed rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Broadcast Notices to Mariners and Local Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of these special local regulations so that they may plan accordingly for these short restrictions on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:07 Jun 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 0 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. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the special local regulation areas during periods of enforcement. The special local regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because they are limited in scope and will be in effect for short periods of time. Before the enforcement period, the Coast Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories widely available to waterway users. Deviation from the special local regulations established through this rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 Order13132. 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 the establishment of special local regulations related to marine event permits for marine parades, regattas, and other marine events. It is categorically excluded from further E:\FR\FM\16JNR1.SGM 16JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 116 / Thursday, June 16, 2016 / Rules and Regulations 39189 review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels.

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

[Docket Number USCG-2015-1039]
RIN 1625-AA08


Special Local Regulations; Sector Ohio Valley Annual and 
Recurring Special Local Regulations Update

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is amending and updating its special local 
regulations relating to recurring marine parades, regattas, and other 
events that take place in the Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley area of 
responsibility (AOR). This rule informs the public of regularly 
scheduled events that require additional safety measures through the 
establishing of a special local regulation. Through this rulemaking the 
current list of recurring special local regulations is updated with 
revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take 
place in Sector Ohio Valley's AOR. When these special local regulations 
are enforced, certain restrictions are placed on marine traffic in 
specified areas.

DATES: This rule is effective June 16, 2016.

CFR Code of Federal Regulations
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

    The Captain of the Port (COTP) Ohio Valley is establishing, 
amending, and updating its current list of recurring special local 
regulations codified under 33 CFR 100.801 in Table no. 1, for the COTP 
Ohio Valley zone.
    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). During the comment 
period that ended April 25, 2016, the Coast Guard received information 
regarding dates for three events from the event sponsors. This 
information is discussed in this document.
    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. Though we are not 
providing a full 30-day delay in the effective date, the Coast Guard 
did provide notice and the opportunity to comment through the NPRM 
process and is now providing as much notice as possible before the 
first recurring event enforcement is required on June 19. It is 
impracticable to provide a full 30-days notice because this rule must 
be effective June 19, 2016 to accommodate the first event.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard's authority for establishing a special local 
regulation is contained at 33 U.S.C. 1233. The Coast Guard is amending 
and updating the special local regulations under 33 CFR part 100 to 
include the most up to date list of recurring special local regulations 
for events held on or around navigable waters within the Sector Ohio 
Valley AOR. These events include marine parades, boat races, swim 
events, and others. The current list under 33 CFR 100.801 requires 
amending to provide new information on existing special local 
regulations, include new special local regulations expected to recur 
annually or biannually, and to remove special local regulations that 
are no longer required. Issuing individual regulations for each new 
special local regulation, amendment, or removal of an existing special 
local regulation creates unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. 
This rulemaking reduces administrative overhead and provides the public 
with notice through publication in the Federal Register of the upcoming 
recurring special local regulations.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, we received information regarding three recurring 
events from the event sponsors during the NPRM comment period. This 
information requires changes to the regulatory text of this rule from 
the proposed rule in the NPRM. Those changes are as follows:
    Change 1: The sponsor of the Owensboro Air show requested a change 
to the proposed event date as listed in Table 1, Line 54. Instead of 
occurring 3 days during the first or second weekend in September, the 
new date will be published in the final rule as: 3 days during one of 
the last three weekends in September. This change was requested to 
enable the Air Show to take place without conflicting with other events 
occurring in September.
    Change 2: The sponsor of the REV3 Triathlon requested a change to 
the proposed date as listed in Table 1, Line 4. Instead of occurring 1 
day during the first or second weekend in May, the new date will be 
published in the final rule as: 1 day during the third or fourth 
weekend in May starting in 2016. This change was requested due to 
scheduling conflicts with other events. This final rule was not 
published in time for the May 22, 2016 occurrence of this event. 
Therefore, a temporary final rule for this event was issued on May 20, 
2016. That rule is accessible as indicated under ADDRESSES.
    Change 3: The sponsor of the Hadi-Shrine/Evansville Freedom 
Festival Air Show informed the Coast Guard that the proposed expanded 
date period from 3 to 4 days was no longer needed and the currently 
published date period of 3 days fits the air show portion of their 
event. Therefore, the date for this event as listed in Table 1, Line 46 
will remain: 3 days during the second or third weekend in June. The 
event sponsor also informed the Coast Guard that the 2016 occurrence of 
this event fell on the fourth weekend in June. Therefore, a separate 
temporary final rule is being issued to establish the necessary special 
local regulation on June 24-26, 2016. That rule is available as 
indicated under ADDRESSES.
    These requested changes are based on the individual sponsors' 
efforts to coordinate events alongside others in the local community. 
In some instances, these changes have been advertised to and planned on 
by the local community, and minimally impact the dates of 3 events as 
listed in the NPRM. These

[[Page 39188]]

revised dates are also considered within the current environmental 
review. Therefore, the Coast Guard is publishing this final rule with 
the requested date changes. All proposed new additions to and removals 
from the recurring list remain the same as in the NPRM.

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.
    The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this rule to be 
minimal, and therefore a full regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. 
This rule establishes special local regulations limiting access to 
certain areas under 33 CFR part 100 within Sector Ohio Valley's AOR. 
The effect of this rulemaking will not be significant because these 
special local regulations are limited in scope and duration. 
Additionally, the public is given advance notification through local 
forms of notice, the Federal Register, and/or Notices of Enforcement 
and thus will be able to plan around the special local regulations in 
advance. Deviation from the special local regulations established 
through this proposed rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate 
COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Broadcast 
Notices to Mariners and Local Notices to Mariners will also inform the 
community of these special local regulations so that they may plan 
accordingly for these short restrictions on transit. Vessel traffic may 
request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated 
representative to enter the 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 received 0 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.
    This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be 
small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit 
the special local regulation areas during periods of enforcement. The 
special local regulations will not have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities because they are limited in 
scope and will be in effect for short periods of time. Before the 
enforcement period, the Coast Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories 
widely available to waterway users. Deviation from the special local 
regulations established through this rulemaking may be requested from 
the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case 
basis.
    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 
Order13132.
    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 the establishment of special local regulations related to 
marine event permits for marine parades, regattas, and other marine 
events. It is categorically excluded from further

[[Page 39189]]

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.
