Table of Abbreviations COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security E.O. Executive Order NAD 83 North American Datum of 1983 NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking II. Background History and Regulatory Information On June 18, 2016, Partners In Education is holding an organized Dragon Boat Race event that will take place on the Maumee River in which participants paddle Hong Kong style Dragon Boats on the Maumee River in Toledo, OH. Due to the projected amount of human-powered watercraft on the water, there is a need to require vessels in the affected waterways to maintain a minimum speed for safe navigation. The Rowing regatta will occur between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on June 18, 2016. This event is taking place under the same sponsorship in the same location as last year. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231, 33 CFR 1.05–1 and 160.5; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. Having reviewed the application for a marine event submitted by the sponsor on February 22, 2016, the Captain of the Port Detroit (COTP) has E:\FR\FM\17JNR1.SGM 17JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 117 / Friday, June 17, 2016 / Rules and Regulations ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES determined that the likely combination of recreation vessels, commercial vessels, and an unknown number of spectators in close proximity to a rowing regatta along the water pose extra and unusual hazards to public safety and property. Therefore, the COTP is establishing a Special Local Regulation around the event location to help minimize risks to safety of life and property during this event. The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). 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 a notice of proposed rulemaking with respect to this rule because waiting for a notice and comment period to run would be impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to the public interest. Although an initial marine event application was submitted on February 22, 2016, final details regarding event area and patrol parameters were not known to the Coast Guard with sufficient time for the Coast Guard to solicit public comments before the start of the event. Thus, delaying the effective date of this rule to wait for a notice and comment period to run would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest because it would inhibit the Coast Guard’s ability to protect the public from the hazards associated with this rowing regatta. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. For the same reasons discussed in the preceding paragraph, waiting for a 30 day notice period to run would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. IV. Discussion of Rule This rule establishes a temporary special local regulation from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. on June 18, 2016. In light of the aforementioned hazards, the COTP has determined that a special local regulation is necessary to protect spectators, vessels, and participants. This special local regulation will encompass all U.S. navigable waters of the Maumee River, Toledo, OH, bound by a line extending from a point on land just north of the Cherry Street Bridge at position 41°39′5.27″ N.; 083°31′34.01″ VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:07 Jun 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 W. straight across the river along the Cherry Street bridge to position 41°39′12.83″ N.; 083°31′42.58″ W. and a line extending from a point of land just south of International Park at position 41°38′46.62″ N.; 083°31′50.54″ W. straight across the river to the shore adjacent to position 41°38′47.37″ N.; 083°32′2.05″ W. (NAD 83). An on-scene representative of the COTP or event sponsor representatives may permit vessels to transit the area when no race activity is occurring. The on-scene representative may be present on any Coast Guard, state or local law enforcement vessel assigned to patrol the event. Vessel operators desiring to transit through the regulated area must contact the Coast Guard Patrol Commander to obtain permission to do so. The COTP or his designated onscene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. The COTP or his designated on-scene representative will notify the public of the enforcement of this rule by all appropriate means, including a Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local 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 these statutes or executive orders (E.O.). A. Regulatory Planning and Review This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as supplemented by E.O. 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of E.O. 12866 or under section 1 of E.O. 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. We conclude that this rule is not a significant regulatory action because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The Coast Guard’s use of this special local regulation will be of relatively small size and only twelve hours in duration, and it is designed to minimize the impact on navigation. Moreover, vessels may transit through the area affected by this special local regulation at a minimum speed for safe navigation. Overall, the Coast Guard expects minimal impact to vessel movement PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39583 from the enforcement of this special local regulation. B. Impact on Small Entities As per the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, we have considered the potential impact of regulations on small entities during 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 might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in this portion of the Maumee River, in the vicinity of Toledo, OH between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on June 18, 2016. This special local regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the reasons cited in the Regulatory Planning and Review section. Additionally, before the enforcement of the regulation, Coast Guard Sector Detroit will issue a local Broadcast Notice to Mariners so vessel owners and operators can plan accordingly. C. Assistance for Small Entities 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 so that they can better evaluate its effects on them. If this 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 above. 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 entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. D. 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). E:\FR\FM\17JNR1.SGM 17JNR1 39584 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 117 / Friday, June 17, 2016 / Rules and Regulations E. Federalism 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 rule under that Order and determined that this rule does not have implications for federalism. F. 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. G. 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 expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. H. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES I. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of E.O. 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. J. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under E.O. 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. K. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:07 Jun 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 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. L. Energy Effects This action is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under E.O. 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. M. Technical Standards This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. N. 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 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves the establishment of a special local regulation and is therefore 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.

II. Background History and Regulatory Information

    On June 18, 2016, Partners In Education is holding an organized 
Dragon Boat Race event that will take place on the Maumee River in 
which participants paddle Hong Kong style Dragon Boats on the Maumee 
River in Toledo, OH. Due to the projected amount of human-powered 
watercraft on the water, there is a need to require vessels in the 
affected waterways to maintain a minimum speed for safe navigation. The 
Rowing regatta will occur between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on June 18, 2016. 
This event is taking place under the same sponsorship in the same 
location as last year.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 
1231, 33 CFR 1.05-1 and 160.5; and Department of Homeland Security 
Delegation No. 0170.1. Having reviewed the application for a marine 
event submitted by the sponsor on February 22, 2016, the Captain of the 
Port Detroit (COTP) has

[[Page 39583]]

determined that the likely combination of recreation vessels, 
commercial vessels, and an unknown number of spectators in close 
proximity to a rowing regatta along the water pose extra and unusual 
hazards to public safety and property. Therefore, the COTP is 
establishing a Special Local Regulation around the event location to 
help minimize risks to safety of life and property during this event.
    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior 
notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 
4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). 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 a notice of proposed rulemaking with 
respect to this rule because waiting for a notice and comment period to 
run would be impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to the public 
interest. Although an initial marine event application was submitted on 
February 22, 2016, final details regarding event area and patrol 
parameters were not known to the Coast Guard with sufficient time for 
the Coast Guard to solicit public comments before the start of the 
event. Thus, delaying the effective date of this rule to wait for a 
notice and comment period to run would be impracticable and contrary to 
the public interest because it would inhibit the Coast Guard's ability 
to protect the public from the hazards associated with this rowing 
regatta.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause 
exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register. For the same reasons discussed in 
the preceding paragraph, waiting for a 30 day notice period to run 
would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest.

IV. Discussion of Rule

    This rule establishes a temporary special local regulation from 6 
a.m. until 6 p.m. on June 18, 2016. In light of the aforementioned 
hazards, the COTP has determined that a special local regulation is 
necessary to protect spectators, vessels, and participants. This 
special local regulation will encompass all U.S. navigable waters of 
the Maumee River, Toledo, OH, bound by a line extending from a point on 
land just north of the Cherry Street Bridge at position 
41[deg]39'5.27'' N.; 083[deg]31'34.01'' W. straight across the river 
along the Cherry Street bridge to position 41[deg]39'12.83'' N.; 
083[deg]31'42.58'' W. and a line extending from a point of land just 
south of International Park at position 41[deg]38'46.62'' N.; 
083[deg]31'50.54'' W. straight across the river to the shore adjacent 
to position 41[deg]38'47.37'' N.; 083[deg]32'2.05'' W. (NAD 83).
    An on-scene representative of the COTP or event sponsor 
representatives may permit vessels to transit the area when no race 
activity is occurring. The on-scene representative may be present on 
any Coast Guard, state or local law enforcement vessel assigned to 
patrol the event. Vessel operators desiring to transit through the 
regulated area must contact the Coast Guard Patrol Commander to obtain 
permission to do so. The COTP or his designated on-scene representative 
may be contacted via VHF Channel 16.
    The COTP or his designated on-scene representative will notify the 
public of the enforcement of this rule by all appropriate means, 
including a Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local 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 these statutes or executive orders (E.O.).

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) 
of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as supplemented by E.O. 
13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and does not require 
an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of 
E.O. 12866 or under section 1 of E.O. 13563. The Office of Management 
and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders.
    We conclude that this rule is not a significant regulatory action 
because we anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, 
will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the 
budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel 
legal or policy issues.
    The Coast Guard's use of this special local regulation will be of 
relatively small size and only twelve hours in duration, and it is 
designed to minimize the impact on navigation. Moreover, vessels may 
transit through the area affected by this special local regulation at a 
minimum speed for safe navigation. Overall, the Coast Guard expects 
minimal impact to vessel movement from the enforcement of this special 
local regulation.

B. Impact on Small Entities

    As per the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601-
612, as amended, we have considered the potential impact of regulations 
on small entities during 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 might 
be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor in this portion of the Maumee River, in the vicinity 
of Toledo, OH between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on June 18, 2016.
    This special local regulation will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities for the reasons cited 
in the Regulatory Planning and Review section. Additionally, before the 
enforcement of the regulation, Coast Guard Sector Detroit will issue a 
local Broadcast Notice to Mariners so vessel owners and operators can 
plan accordingly.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

    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 so that they can better evaluate 
its effects on them. If this 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 above.
    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 entities 
that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of 
the Coast Guard.

D. 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).

E. Federalism

    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 rule under that Order and determined 
that this rule does not have implications for federalism.

F. 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.

G. 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 expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in 
this preamble.

H. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

I. Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of E.O. 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate 
ambiguity, and reduce burden.

J. Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under E.O. 13045, Protection of Children 
from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an 
economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk 
to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect 
children.

K. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 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.

L. Energy Effects

    This action is not a ``significant energy action'' under E.O. 
13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use.

M. Technical Standards

    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

N. 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 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded 
this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually 
or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. 
This rule involves the establishment of a special local regulation and 
is therefore 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.
