Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary 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.’’ We did not publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a NPRM thirty days in advance of its publication in the Federal Register, because publishing an NPRM would be impracticable. The 13:55 Aug 24, 2016 Jkt 238001 III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The legal basis and authorities for this temporary rule are found in 33 U.S.C. 1231, 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, 160.5, and 165.30; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to propose, establish, and define regulatory security zones. The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary security zone on the navigable waters of the San Diego Bay to ensure the safety and security of U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard assets and personnel in San Diego, CA, on September 10, 2016. IV. Discussion of the Rule I. Table of Abbreviations VerDate Sep<11>2014 availability of assets and the desired location of the demonstration could not be confirmed in time to allow for a notice and comment period. Delay in this temporary rule’s effective date would be detrimental to the immediate need to ensure the safety and security of U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard assets and personnel. 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 the effective date of this rule would be impracticable because of the immediate need to ensure the security of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard assets and personnel. The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary security zone that will be enforced from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on September 10, 2016. This security zone will encompass the waters within a 750foot radius centered at the following coordinate: 32°43′18″ N., 117°12′11″ W. The purpose of the security zone is intended to protect the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard surface and aerial assets, crews, and support personnel who will be performing mission capability and search and rescues demonstrations in San Diego, CA. Persons and vessels will be prohibited from entering into or remaining in the security zone unless authorized by the COTP San Diego or his designated representative. Prior to the event and during the enforcement of the event, the Coast Guard will issue a SMIB via VHF Channel 16/22A. 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 and executive orders. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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. E.O. 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 E.O. 12866. Accordingly, it has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This determination is based on the size, location and limited duration of the security zone. This zone impacts a small designated area of the San Diego bay for a very limited period. Furthermore, vessel traffic can safely transit around the security zone. B. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 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. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the impacted portion of the San Diego Bay from 11:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. on September 10, 2016. This security zone will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: Vessel traffic can pass safely around the zone, and the zone will be enforced for a short duration of time. The Coast Guard will issue a SMIB to mariners via VHF Channel 16 and 22A before the security zone is enforced. 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. E:\FR\FM\25AUR1.SGM 25AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 165 / Thursday, August 25, 2016 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in E.O. 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. Lhorne on DSK30JT082PROD with RULES 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 expenditure, we VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:55 Aug 24, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 establishment of a security zone lasting only 3 hours on the navigable waters of San Diego Bay. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) 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. 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.

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary 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.''
    We did not publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for this 
regulation. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a NPRM thirty days in advance of its 
publication in the Federal Register, because publishing an NPRM would 
be impracticable. The availability of assets and the desired location 
of the demonstration could not be confirmed in time to allow for a 
notice and comment period. Delay in this temporary rule's effective 
date would be detrimental to the immediate need to ensure the safety 
and security of U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard assets and personnel.
    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 the effective 
date of this rule would be impracticable because of the immediate need 
to ensure the security of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard assets and 
personnel.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The legal basis and authorities for this temporary rule are found 
in 33 U.S.C. 1231, 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05-1, 6.04-1, 6.04-6, 160.5, 
and 165.30; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1, 
which collectively authorize the Coast Guard to propose, establish, and 
define regulatory security zones. The Coast Guard is establishing a 
temporary security zone on the navigable waters of the San Diego Bay to 
ensure the safety and security of U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard assets 
and personnel in San Diego, CA, on September 10, 2016.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary security zone that will 
be enforced from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on September 10, 2016. This 
security zone will encompass the waters within a 750-foot radius 
centered at the following coordinate: 32[deg]43'18'' N., 
117[deg]12'11'' W. The purpose of the security zone is intended to 
protect the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard surface and aerial assets, 
crews, and support personnel who will be performing mission capability 
and search and rescues demonstrations in San Diego, CA. Persons and 
vessels will be prohibited from entering into or remaining in the 
security zone unless authorized by the COTP San Diego or his designated 
representative. Prior to the event and during the enforcement of the 
event, the Coast Guard will issue a SMIB via VHF Channel 16/22A.

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 and executive orders.

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. E.O. 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 E.O. 12866. Accordingly, it 
has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This 
determination is based on the size, location and limited duration of 
the security zone. This zone impacts a small designated area of the San 
Diego bay for a very limited period. Furthermore, vessel traffic can 
safely transit around the security zone.

B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 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. This rule will affect the following entities, some of 
which may be small entities: the owners or operators of vessels 
intending to transit or anchor in the impacted portion of the San Diego 
Bay from 11:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. on September 10, 2016.
    This security zone will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: Vessel 
traffic can pass safely around the zone, and the zone will be enforced 
for a short duration of time. The Coast Guard will issue a SMIB to 
mariners via VHF Channel 16 and 22A before the security zone is 
enforced.
    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.

[[Page 58397]]

    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

    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 determined 
that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and 
preemption requirements described in E.O. 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 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 establishment of a security zone lasting only 3 hours on 
the navigable waters of San Diego Bay. It is categorically excluded 
from further review under paragraph 34(g) 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.

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.
