In § 100.135, revise paragraph (d) to read as follows: ■ § 100.135 Unlawful practices in the selling, brokering, or appraising of residential real property. * * * * * (d) Practices which are unlawful under this section include, but are not limited to: (1) Using an appraisal of residential real property in connection with the sale, rental, or financing of any dwelling where the person knows or reasonably should know that the appraisal improperly takes into consideration race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. (2) Conditioning the terms of an appraisal of residential real property in connection with the sale, rental, or financing of a dwelling on a person’s response to harassment because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. ■ 10. In § 100.400, add paragraph (c)(6) to read as follows: § 100.400 Prohibited interference, coercion or intimidation. * * * * * (c) * * * (6) Retaliating against any person because that person reported a discriminatory housing practice to a housing provider or other authority. ■ 11. Add subpart H, consisting of § 100.600, to read as follows: Subpart H— Quid Pro Quo and Hostile Environment Harassment asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES § 100.600 Quid pro quo and hostile environment harassment. (a) General. Quid pro quo and hostile environment harassment because of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin or handicap may violate sections 804, 805, 806 or 818 of the Act, depending on the conduct. The same conduct may violate one or more of these provisions. (1) Quid pro quo harassment. Quid pro quo harassment refers to an unwelcome request or demand to engage in conduct where submission to the request or demand, either explicitly or implicitly, is made a condition related to: The sale, rental or availability of a dwelling; the terms, conditions, or privileges of the sale or rental, or the provision of services or facilities in connection therewith; or the availability, terms, or conditions of a residential real estate-related transaction. An unwelcome request or demand may constitute quid pro quo harassment even if a person acquiesces in the unwelcome request or demand. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:49 Sep 13, 2016 Jkt 238001 (2) Hostile environment harassment. Hostile environment harassment refers to unwelcome conduct that is sufficiently severe or pervasive as to interfere with: The availability, sale, rental, or use or enjoyment of a dwelling; the terms, conditions, or privileges of the sale or rental, or the provision or enjoyment of services or facilities in connection therewith; or the availability, terms, or conditions of a residential real estate-related transaction. Hostile environment harassment does not require a change in the economic benefits, terms, or conditions of the dwelling or housingrelated services or facilities, or of the residential real-estate transaction. (i) Totality of the circumstances. Whether hostile environment harassment exists depends upon the totality of the circumstances. (A) Factors to be considered to determine whether hostile environment harassment exists include, but are not limited to, the nature of the conduct, the context in which the incident(s) occurred, the severity, scope, frequency, duration, and location of the conduct, and the relationships of the persons involved. (B) Neither psychological nor physical harm must be demonstrated to prove that a hostile environment exists. Evidence of psychological or physical harm may, however, be relevant in determining whether a hostile environment existed and, if so, the amount of damages to which an aggrieved person may be entitled. (C) Whether unwelcome conduct is sufficiently severe or pervasive as to create a hostile environment is evaluated from the perspective of a reasonable person in the aggrieved person’s position. (ii) Title VII affirmative defense. The affirmative defense to an employer’s vicarious liability for hostile environment harassment by a supervisor under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not apply to cases brought pursuant to the Fair Housing Act. (b) Type of conduct. Harassment can be written, verbal, or other conduct, and does not require physical contact. (c) Number of incidents. A single incident of harassment because of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, or handicap may constitute a discriminatory housing practice, where the incident is sufficiently severe to create a hostile environment, or evidences a quid pro quo.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is issuing a final rule that revises the list of special local regulations and safety zones established for recurring marine events and fireworks displays that take place within the Fifth Coast Guard District area of responsibility. This rule revises the listing of events that informs the public of regularly scheduled marine parades, regattas, other organized water events, and fireworks displays that require additional safety measures provided by regulations. Under this rule, the list of recurring marine events requiring special local regulations or safety zones is updated with revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in the Fifth Coast Guard District. When these regulations are enforced, certain restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas. This rulemaking project promotes efficiency by eliminating the need to produce a separate rule for each individual recurring event, and serves to provide notice of the known recurring events requiring a special local regulation or safety zone throughout the year. DATES: This rule is effective October 14, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code USCG United States Coast Guard II. Background Information and Regulatory History The special local regulations listed in 33 CFR 100.501 and safety zones in 33 CFR 165.506 were last amended on April 16, 2015 (80 FR 20418). The Coast Guard published an interim final rule and request for comments on April 22, 2016 (81 FR 23605). During the comment period that ended July 21, 2016 we received one comment. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard issues this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231; 33 U.S.C. 1233; 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. The Coast Guard regularly updates special local regulations and safety zones established for recurring marine events and fireworks displays that take place either on or over the navigable waters of the United States. Under that rule, the list of recurring marine events requiring special local regulations or safety zones is updated with revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place within the Fifth Coast Guard District. The Fifth Coast Guard District area of responsibility is defined in 33 CFR 3.25. The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of persons, vessels and the navigable waters within close proximity to marine events and or fireworks displays before, during, and after the scheduled event. Publishing these regulatory updates in a single rulemaking promotes administrative efficiency and reduces costs involved in producing a separate rule for each individual recurring event. This action also provides the public with notice through publication in the Federal Register of future recurring marine events and fireworks displays and their accompanying regulations, special local regulations and safety zones. This rule provides separate tables for each Coast Guard Sector within the Fifth Coast Guard District. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received one comment on the Interim final rule published April 22, 2016. The respondent comment addressed a concern that ‘‘Any permits for Fireworks Displays must have boundaries set no closer than 500 yards from any fuel depot, shipyard, marina, cargo facility that handles hazardous or flammable cargo or any ‘‘facility’’ that handles hazardous or flammable materials.’’ The commenter suggested that the safety zone radius should be a distance of 500 yards plus the expected radius of the ‘‘hot’’ area created by the fireworks display. No changes were made to the rule based upon this comment; however the Coast Guard recognizes the importance of appropriate controls on fireworks displays that take place over and or adjacent to navigable waters of the United States. Accordingly USCG authority and oversight is based on current Federal regulations, applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes, and lessons learned from accident report findings. We believe these recommendations provide a more thorough and nuanced safety area than a blanket radius requirement. The CG Captain of the Port (COTP) ensures safety of persons and vessels on navigable waters of the United States in close proximity to fireworks events through coordination with event sponsor, fireworks operator, fire department, police department, Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), and other appropriate entities. The definition of ‘‘Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ)’’ is in accordance with NFPA 1123 which states, ‘‘The organization, office, or individual responsible for approving equipment, materials, an installation, or a procedure.’’ It is incumbent upon the event sponsor and or fireworks operator to consult with AHJ regarding fireworks display boundaries for restricted areas when seeking a fireworks permit. Under this arrangement the fireworks operator should provide a copy of the fireworks permit issued by the AHJ to the COTP to confirm compliance with local government regulations, ordinances and NFPA codes. The safety guidance provided in NAVIGATION AND VESSEL INSPECTION CIRCULAR NO. 702, dated June 18, 2002 sets forth Coast Guard policy used by USCG Captains of the Port; this document may be viewed in the docket. Special Local Regulations This rule adds 4 new special local regulations for marine events, removes 8 regulations and revises 18 previously established regulations for marine events listed in the Table to § 100.501. Other than changes to the dates and locations of certain events, the other provisions in 33 CFR 100.501 remain unchanged. This rule provides additional information about regulated areas and the restrictions that apply to mariners and new terms including ‘‘Race Area’’, ‘‘Spectator Area’’ and ‘‘Buffer Zone’’. The 24 hour contact phone numbers are updated for Coast Guard Sectors Delaware Bay and North Carolina. The Coast Guard revises regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by adding 4 new special local regulations. The special local regulations are listed in Table 1, including reference by section as printed in the Table to § 100.501.

Possible hazards include risks of injury or death resulting from near or actual contact among participant vessels and spectator vessels or mariners traversing through the regulated area. In order to protect the safety of all waterway users including event participants and spectators, this rule establishes special local regulations for the time and location of each marine event. This rule provides designated spectator areas for commercial small passenger vessels at certain marine event(s). The purpose of a commercial small passenger vessel spectator area is to ensure the safe operation of commercial vessels that carry a greater number of passengers onboard and operating within the widespread, high capacity spectator fleet at marine events. These spectator areas facilitate direct and unobstructed accesses for first responders should an emergency occur aboard one of the higher capacity commercial passenger vessels. Commercial passenger vessels holding a valid Certificate of Inspection issued under 46 CFR 114.110, and 175.110, (subchapter K or T vessels) are eligible for access to the designated spectator area as directed by the marine event Patrol Commander. Owners or operators of vessels that meet the requirements of subchapter K or T vessels may request access to the Severn River spectator area for the U.S. Naval Academy Blue Angels Air Show by contacting the City of Annapolis Harbormaster Office, at telephone (410) 263–7973 or email at harbormaster@ annapolis.gov. Application must be made no later than seven days prior to the date of the event. Applicants will be notified by the Captain of the Port or representative regarding status of applications generally the Friday before the date of the event. Owners or operators of vessels that meet the requirements of subchapter K or T vessels may request access to the Patapsco River spectator area for the Baltimore Air Show by contacting Sail Baltimore at telephone (410) 522–7300 or email at info@sailbaltimore.org. Application must be made no later than ten days prior to the date of the event. Applicants will be notified by the Captain of the Port or representative regarding status of applications generally the Friday before the date of the event. This rule prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP), or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The designated ‘‘Patrol Commander’’ includes Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or petty officer who has been designated by the COTP to act on their behalf. On-scene Patrol Commander may be augmented by local, State or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the Coast Guard. Safety Zones This rule adds 4 new safety zones, and revises 22 previously established safety zones listed in the Table to § 165.506. Other than changes to the dates and locations of certain safety zones, the other provisions in 33 CFR 165.506 remain unchanged. The Coast Guard revises the regulations at 33 CFR 165.506 by adding 4 new safety zone locations to the permanent regulations listed in this section. The new safety zones are listed in Table 4, including reference by section as printed in the Table to § 165.506. TABLE 4 [Safety zones added to 33 CFR 165.506] Table to § 165.506 section 1. 2. 3. 4.

Each year, organizations in the Fifth Coast Guard District sponsor fireworks displays in the same general location and time period. Each event uses a barge or an on-shore site near the shoreline as the fireworks launch platform. A safety zone is used to control vessel movement within a specified distance surrounding the launch platforms to ensure the safety of persons and property. Coast Guard personnel on scene may allow boaters within the safety zone if conditions permit. The enforcement period for these safety zones is from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. local time. However, vessels may enter, remain in, or transit through these safety zones during this time frame if authorized by the COTP or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander on scene, as provided for in 33 CFR 165.23. This rule provides for the safety of life on navigable waters during the events. The regulatory text we are proposing appears at the end of this document. 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. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES 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, the rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This regulatory action determination is based on the short amount of time VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:49 Sep 13, 2016 Revision (date/coordinates) Location Jkt 238001 that vessels will be restricted from regulated areas, and the small size of these areas that are usually positioned away from high vessel traffic zones. Generally vessels would not be precluded from getting underway, or mooring at any piers or marinas currently located in the vicinity of the regulated areas. Advance notifications would also be made to the local maritime community by issuance of Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, Marine information and facsimile broadcasts so mariners can adjust their plans accordingly. Notifications to the public for most events will typically be made by local newspapers, radio and TV stations. The Coast Guard anticipates that these special local regulated areas and safety zones will only be enforced one to three times per year. 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 would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the regulated areas or safety zones may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A above this rule would not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. However this rule will affect the following entities some of which may be small entities: The owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in these regulated areas during the times the zones are enforced. These special local regulated areas and safety zones will not have a PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 dates. dates. dates. dates/coordinates. dates. dates. dates. significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: The Coast Guard will ensure that small entities are able to operate in the areas where events are occurring to the extent possible while ensuring the safety of event participants and spectators. The enforcement period will be short in duration and, in many of the areas, vessels can transit safely around the regulated area. Generally, blanket permission to enter, remain in, or transit through these regulated areas will be given, except during the period that the Coast Guard patrol vessel is present. Before the enforcement period, we will issue maritime advisories widely. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 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. 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 would 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 E:\FR\FM\14SER1.SGM 14SER1 63080 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 178 / Wednesday, September 14, 2016 / Rules and Regulations 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 would 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. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD 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 would 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 made a preliminary determination 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 implementation of regulations within 33 CFR part 100 that apply to organized marine events on the navigable waters of the United States. Some marine events by their nature may introduce potential for adverse impact on the safety or other interest of waterway users or waterfront infrastructure within or close proximity to the event area. The category of water activities includes but is not limited to sail boat regattas, boat parades, power boat racing, swimming events, crew VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:49 Sep 13, 2016 Jkt 238001 racing, and sail board racing. This section of the rule is 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 not required for this section of the rule. This rule involves implementation of regulations at 33 CFR part 165 that establish safety zones on navigable waters of the United States for fireworks events. These safety zones are enforced for the duration of fireworks display events. The fireworks are generally launched from or immediately adjacent to navigable waters of the United States. The category of activities includes fireworks launched from barges or at the shoreline that generally rely on the use of navigable waters as a safety buffer. Fireworks displays may introduce potential hazards such as accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. This section of the rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 33 CFR parts 100 and 165 as follows: PART 100—SAFETY OF LIFE ON NAVIGABLE WATERS 1. The authority citation for part 100 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1233. 2. Revise section 100.501 to read as follows: ■ § 100.501 Special Local Regulations; Marine Events within the Fifth Coast Guard District. The regulations in this section apply to the marine events listed in the Table to § 100.501. These regulations will be effective annually, for the duration of each event listed in the Table to PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 § 100.501. Annual notice of the exact dates and times of the effective period of the regulation with respect to each event, the geographical area, and details concerning the nature of the event and the number of participants and type(s) of vessels involved will be published in Local Notices to Mariners and via Broadcast Notice to Mariners over VHF– FM marine band radio. (a) Definitions. The following definitions apply to this section: (1) Coast Guard Patrol Commander. A Patrol Commander (PATCOM) is a commissioned, warrant, or petty officer of the Coast Guard who has been designated by the respective Coast Guard Sector—Captain of the Port to enforce these regulations. (2) Official Patrol means any vessel assigned or approved by the respective Captain of the Port with a commissioned, warrant, or petty officer on board and displaying a Coast Guard ensign. (3) Spectators. All persons and vessels not registered with the event sponsor as participants or official patrol vessels. (4) Regulated area as used in this section means an area where Special local regulations apply to a specific described waterway to include creeks, sounds, bays, rivers and oceans. Regulated areas include all waters of a specific body of water described with intent to define boundaries where Coast Guard enforces Special local regulations. Boundaries may be described from shoreline to shoreline, reference bridges or other fixed structures, by points and lines defined by latitude and longitude. All coordinates reference Datum: NAD 1983. (b) Marine Event Patrol. The Coast Guard may assign a marine event patrol, as described in § 100.40 of this part, to each regulated event listed in the table. Additionally, a PATCOM may be assigned to oversee the patrol. The marine event patrol and PATCOM may be contacted on VHF–FM Channel 16. The PATCOM may terminate the event, or the operation of any vessel participating in the marine event, at any time if deemed necessary for the protection of life or property. Only designated marine event participants and their vessels and official patrol vessels are authorized to enter the regulated area. (c) Special local regulations—(1) Controls on vessel movement. The PATCOM or designated marine event patrol may forbid and control the movement of all vessels in the regulated area(s). When hailed or signaled by an official patrol vessel, a vessel in these areas shall immediately comply with E:\FR\FM\14SER1.SGM 14SER1 asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 178 / Wednesday, September 14, 2016 / Rules and Regulations the directions given. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both. (2) Directions, instructions, and minimum speed necessary. The operator of any vessel in the regulated area shall: (i) Stop the vessel immediately when directed to do so by any Official Patrol and then proceed only as directed. (ii) All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of the Official Patrol. (iii) When authorized to transit the regulated area, all vessels shall proceed at the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course that minimizes wake near the race course. (3) Race Area. This is an area described by a line bound by coordinates provided in latitude and longitude that outlines the boundary of a race area within the regulated area defined by this part. Only event sponsor designated participants or designated participating vessels and official patrol vessels are allowed to enter the race area. Persons or vessel operators may request authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area by contacting the PATCOM on VHF–FM Channel 16. (4) Spectator Area. This is an area described by a line bound by coordinates provided in latitude and longitude that outlines the boundary of a spectator area within the regulated area defined by this part. Spectators are only allowed inside the regulated area if they remain within a designated spectator area. All spectator vessels shall be anchored or operate at a No Wake Speed within the designated spectator area. On scene designated PATCOM representatives will direct spectator vessels to the spectator area. Spectators may contact the PATCOM to request permission to pass through the regulated area. If permission is granted, spectators must pass directly through the regulated area at safe speed and without loitering. (5) Buffer Area. This is a neutral zone that surrounds the perimeter of a Race Area or Marine Event Area within the regulated area described by this part. The purpose of a buffer zone is to minimize potential collision conflicts with marine event participants or race boats and spectator vessels or nearby transiting vessels. This zone provides separation between a Race Area or Marine Event Area and a specified Spectator Area or other vessels that are operating in the vicinity of the Special local regulated area for marine event. (6) Spectators. Spectators are only allowed inside the regulated area if they remain within a designated spectator area. Spectators may contact the VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:49 Sep 13, 2016 Jkt 238001 PATCOM to request permission to either enter the Spectator Area or pass through the regulated area. If permission is granted, spectators may enter the Spectator Area or must pass directly through the regulated area as instructed by PATCOM at safe speed and without loitering.

Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Marine 
Events and Fireworks Displays Within the Fifth Coast Guard District

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is issuing a final rule that revises the list 
of special local regulations and safety zones established for recurring 
marine events and fireworks displays that take place within the Fifth 
Coast Guard District area of responsibility. This rule revises the 
listing of events that informs the public of regularly scheduled marine 
parades, regattas, other organized water events, and fireworks displays 
that require additional safety measures provided by regulations. Under 
this rule, the list of recurring marine events requiring special local 
regulations or safety zones is updated with revisions, additional 
events, and removal of events that no longer take place in the Fifth 
Coast Guard District. When these regulations are enforced, certain 
restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas. This 
rulemaking project promotes efficiency by eliminating the need to 
produce a separate rule for each individual recurring event, and serves 
to provide notice of the known recurring events requiring a special 
local regulation or safety zone throughout the year.

DATES: This rule is effective October 14, 2016.

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The special local regulations listed in 33 CFR 100.501 and safety 
zones in 33 CFR 165.506 were last amended on April 16, 2015 (80 FR 
20418). The Coast Guard published an interim final rule and request for 
comments on April 22, 2016 (81 FR 23605). During the comment period 
that ended July 21, 2016 we received one comment.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard issues this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 
1231; 33 U.S.C. 1233; 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05-1, 6.04-1, 6.04-6, and 
160.5; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.
    The Coast Guard regularly updates special local regulations and 
safety zones established for recurring marine events and fireworks 
displays that take place either on or over the navigable waters of the 
United States. Under that rule, the list of recurring marine events 
requiring special local regulations or safety zones is updated with 
revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take 
place within the Fifth Coast Guard District. The Fifth Coast Guard 
District area of responsibility is defined in 33 CFR 3.25.
    The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of persons, 
vessels and the navigable waters within close proximity to marine 
events and or fireworks displays before, during, and after the 
scheduled event. Publishing these regulatory updates in a single 
rulemaking promotes administrative efficiency and reduces costs 
involved in producing a separate rule for each individual recurring 
event. This action also provides the public with notice through 
publication in the Federal Register of future recurring marine events 
and fireworks displays and their accompanying regulations, special 
local regulations and safety zones. This rule provides separate tables 
for each Coast Guard Sector within the Fifth Coast Guard District.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, we received one comment on the Interim final rule 
published April 22, 2016. The respondent comment addressed a concern 
that ``Any permits for Fireworks Displays must have boundaries set no 
closer than 500 yards from any fuel depot, shipyard, marina, cargo 
facility that handles hazardous or flammable cargo or any ``facility'' 
that handles hazardous or flammable materials.'' The commenter 
suggested that the safety zone radius should be a distance of 500 yards 
plus the expected radius of the ``hot'' area created by the fireworks 
display.
    No changes were made to the rule based upon this comment; however 
the Coast Guard recognizes the importance of appropriate controls on 
fireworks displays that take place over and or adjacent to navigable 
waters of the United States. Accordingly USCG authority and oversight 
is based on current Federal regulations, applicable National Fire 
Protection Association (NFPA) codes, and lessons learned from accident 
report findings. We believe these recommendations provide a more 
thorough and nuanced safety area than a blanket radius requirement. The 
CG Captain of the Port (COTP) ensures safety of persons and vessels on 
navigable waters of the United States in close proximity to fireworks 
events through coordination with event sponsor, fireworks operator, 
fire department, police department, Authority Having Jurisdiction 
(AHJ), and other appropriate entities. The definition of ``Authority 
Having Jurisdiction (AHJ)'' is in accordance with NFPA 1123 which 
states, ``The organization, office, or individual responsible for 
approving equipment, materials, an installation, or a procedure.'' It 
is incumbent upon the event sponsor and or fireworks operator to 
consult with AHJ regarding fireworks display boundaries for restricted 
areas when seeking a fireworks permit. Under this arrangement the 
fireworks operator should provide a copy of the fireworks permit issued 
by the AHJ to the COTP to confirm compliance with local government 
regulations, ordinances and NFPA codes. The safety guidance provided in 
NAVIGATION AND VESSEL INSPECTION CIRCULAR NO. 702, dated June 18, 2002 
sets forth Coast Guard policy used by USCG Captains of the Port; this 
document may be viewed in the docket.

Special Local Regulations

    This rule adds 4 new special local regulations for marine events, 
removes 8 regulations and revises 18 previously established regulations 
for marine events listed in the Table to Sec.  100.501. Other than 
changes to the dates and locations of certain events, the other 
provisions in 33 CFR 100.501 remain unchanged.
    This rule provides additional information about regulated areas and 
the restrictions that apply to mariners and new terms including ``Race 
Area'', ``Spectator Area'' and ``Buffer Zone''. The 24 hour contact 
phone numbers are updated for Coast Guard Sectors Delaware Bay and 
North Carolina.
    The Coast Guard revises regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by adding 4 
new special local regulations. The special local regulations are listed 
in Table 1, including reference by section as printed in the Table to 
Sec.  100.501.

    Based on the nature of marine events, large number of participants 
and spectators, and event locations, the Coast Guard has determined 
that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to participants 
or waterway users if normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the 
event. Possible hazards include risks of injury or death resulting from 
near or actual contact among participant vessels and spectator vessels 
or mariners traversing through the regulated area. In order to protect 
the safety of all waterway users including event participants and 
spectators, this rule establishes special local regulations for the 
time and location of each marine event.
    This rule provides designated spectator areas for commercial small 
passenger vessels at certain marine event(s). The purpose of a 
commercial small passenger vessel spectator area is to ensure the safe 
operation of commercial vessels that carry a greater number of 
passengers onboard and operating within the widespread, high capacity 
spectator fleet at marine events. These spectator areas facilitate 
direct and unobstructed accesses for first responders should an 
emergency occur aboard one of the higher capacity commercial passenger 
vessels. Commercial passenger vessels holding a valid Certificate of 
Inspection issued under 46 CFR 114.110, and 175.110, (subchapter K or T 
vessels) are eligible for access to the designated spectator area as 
directed by the marine event Patrol Commander.
    Owners or operators of vessels that meet the requirements of 
subchapter K or T vessels may request access to the Severn River 
spectator area for the U.S. Naval Academy Blue Angels Air Show by 
contacting the City of Annapolis Harbormaster Office, at telephone 
(410) 263-7973 or email at harbormaster@annapolis.gov. Application must 
be made no later than seven days prior to the date of the event. 
Applicants will be notified by the Captain of the Port or 
representative regarding status of applications generally the Friday 
before the date of the event.
    Owners or operators of vessels that meet the requirements of 
subchapter K or T vessels may request access to the Patapsco River 
spectator area for the Baltimore Air Show by contacting Sail Baltimore 
at telephone (410) 522-7300 or email at info@sailbaltimore.org. 
Application must be made no later than ten days prior to the date of 
the event. Applicants will be notified by the Captain of the Port or 
representative regarding status of applications generally the Friday 
before the date of the event.
    This rule prevents vessels from entering, transiting, mooring or 
anchoring within areas specifically designated as regulated areas 
during the periods of enforcement unless authorized by the Captain of 
the Port (COTP), or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander. The 
designated ``Patrol Commander'' includes Coast Guard commissioned, 
warrant, or petty officer who has been designated by the COTP to act on 
their behalf. On-scene Patrol Commander may be augmented by local, 
State or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the Coast 
Guard.

Safety Zones

    This rule adds 4 new safety zones, and revises 22 previously 
established safety zones listed in the Table to Sec.  165.506. Other 
than changes to the dates and locations of certain safety zones, the 
other provisions in 33 CFR 165.506 remain unchanged.
    The Coast Guard revises the regulations at 33 CFR 165.506 by adding 
4 new safety zone locations to the permanent regulations listed in this

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

    Each year, organizations in the Fifth Coast Guard District sponsor 
fireworks displays in the same general location and time period. Each 
event uses a barge or an on-shore site near the shoreline as the 
fireworks launch platform. A safety zone is used to control vessel 
movement within a specified distance surrounding the launch platforms 
to ensure the safety of persons and property. Coast Guard personnel on 
scene may allow boaters within the safety zone if conditions permit.
    The enforcement period for these safety zones is from 5:30 p.m. to 
1 a.m. local time. However, vessels may enter, remain in, or transit 
through these safety zones during this time frame if authorized by the 
COTP or designated Coast Guard Patrol Commander on scene, as provided 
for in 33 CFR 165.23. This rule provides for the safety of life on 
navigable waters during the events. The regulatory text we are 
proposing appears at the end of this document.

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, the rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management 
and Budget.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the short amount 
of time that vessels will be restricted from regulated areas, and the 
small size of these areas that are usually positioned away from high 
vessel traffic zones. Generally vessels would not be precluded from 
getting underway, or mooring at any piers or marinas currently located 
in the vicinity of the regulated areas. Advance notifications would 
also be made to the local maritime community by issuance of Local 
Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, Marine information 
and facsimile broadcasts so mariners can adjust their plans 
accordingly. Notifications to the public for most events will typically 
be made by local newspapers, radio and TV stations. The Coast Guard 
anticipates that these special local regulated areas and safety zones 
will only be enforced one to three times per year.

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 
would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities.
    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the 
regulated areas or safety zones may be small entities, for the reasons 
stated in section IV.A above this rule would not have a significant 
economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. However this rule will 
affect the following entities some of which may be small entities: The 
owners and operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in these 
regulated areas during the times the zones are enforced.
    These special local regulated areas and safety zones will not have 
a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
for the following reasons: The Coast Guard will ensure that small 
entities are able to operate in the areas where events are occurring to 
the extent possible while ensuring the safety of event participants and 
spectators. The enforcement period will be short in duration and, in 
many of the areas, vessels can transit safely around the regulated 
area. Generally, blanket permission to enter, remain in, or transit 
through these regulated areas will be given, except during the period 
that the Coast Guard patrol vessel is present. Before the enforcement 
period, we will issue maritime advisories widely.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.
    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Public Law 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. 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 would 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

[[Page 63080]]

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 would 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 would 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 made a preliminary 
determination 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 implementation of regulations within 33 CFR part 
100 that apply to organized marine events on the navigable waters of 
the United States. Some marine events by their nature may introduce 
potential for adverse impact on the safety or other interest of 
waterway users or waterfront infrastructure within or close proximity 
to the event area. The category of water activities includes but is not 
limited to sail boat regattas, boat parades, power boat racing, 
swimming events, crew racing, and sail board racing. This section of 
the rule is 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 not required for this section of the rule.
    This rule involves implementation of regulations at 33 CFR part 165 
that establish safety zones on navigable waters of the United States 
for fireworks events. These safety zones are enforced for the duration 
of fireworks display events. The fireworks are generally launched from 
or immediately adjacent to navigable waters of the United States. The 
category of activities includes fireworks launched from barges or at 
the shoreline that generally rely on the use of navigable waters as a 
safety buffer. Fireworks displays may introduce potential hazards such 
as accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and 
falling hot embers or other debris. This section of the rule is 
categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of 
Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. A environmental analysis 
checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion 
Determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.

2. Revise section 100.501 to read as follows:


Sec.  100.501  Special Local Regulations; Marine Events within the 
Fifth Coast Guard District.

    The regulations in this section apply to the marine events listed 
in the Table to Sec.  100.501. These regulations will be effective 
annually, for the duration of each event listed in the Table to Sec.  
100.501. Annual notice of the exact dates and times of the effective 
period of the regulation with respect to each event, the geographical 
area, and details concerning the nature of the event and the number of 
participants and type(s) of vessels involved will be published in Local 
Notices to Mariners and via Broadcast Notice to Mariners over VHF-FM 
marine band radio.
    (a) Definitions. The following definitions apply to this section:
    (1) Coast Guard Patrol Commander. A Patrol Commander (PATCOM) is a 
commissioned, warrant, or petty officer of the Coast Guard who has been 
designated by the respective Coast Guard Sector--Captain of the Port to 
enforce these regulations.
    (2) Official Patrol means any vessel assigned or approved by the 
respective Captain of the Port with a commissioned, warrant, or petty 
officer on board and displaying a Coast Guard ensign.
    (3) Spectators. All persons and vessels not registered with the 
event sponsor as participants or official patrol vessels.
    (4) Regulated area as used in this section means an area where 
Special local regulations apply to a specific described waterway to 
include creeks, sounds, bays, rivers and oceans. Regulated areas 
include all waters of a specific body of water described with intent to 
define boundaries where Coast Guard enforces Special local regulations. 
Boundaries may be described from shoreline to shoreline, reference 
bridges or other fixed structures, by points and lines defined by 
latitude and longitude. All coordinates reference Datum: NAD 1983.
    (b) Marine Event Patrol. The Coast Guard may assign a marine event 
patrol, as described in Sec.  100.40 of this part, to each regulated 
event listed in the table. Additionally, a PATCOM may be assigned to 
oversee the patrol. The marine event patrol and PATCOM may be contacted 
on VHF-FM Channel 16. The PATCOM may terminate the event, or the 
operation of any vessel participating in the marine event, at any time 
if deemed necessary for the protection of life or property. Only 
designated marine event participants and their vessels and official 
patrol vessels are authorized to enter the regulated area.
    (c) Special local regulations--(1) Controls on vessel movement. The 
PATCOM or designated marine event patrol may forbid and control the 
movement of all vessels in the regulated area(s). When hailed or 
signaled by an official patrol vessel, a vessel in these areas shall 
immediately comply with

[[Page 63081]]

the directions given. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the 
area, citation for failure to comply, or both.
    (2) Directions, instructions, and minimum speed necessary. The 
operator of any vessel in the regulated area shall:
    (i) Stop the vessel immediately when directed to do so by any 
Official Patrol and then proceed only as directed.
    (ii) All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of 
the Official Patrol.
    (iii) When authorized to transit the regulated area, all vessels 
shall proceed at the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course 
that minimizes wake near the race course.
    (3) Race Area. This is an area described by a line bound by 
coordinates provided in latitude and longitude that outlines the 
boundary of a race area within the regulated area defined by this part. 
Only event sponsor designated participants or designated participating 
vessels and official patrol vessels are allowed to enter the race area. 
Persons or vessel operators may request authorization to enter, transit 
through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area by contacting 
the PATCOM on VHF-FM Channel 16.
    (4) Spectator Area. This is an area described by a line bound by 
coordinates provided in latitude and longitude that outlines the 
boundary of a spectator area within the regulated area defined by this 
part. Spectators are only allowed inside the regulated area if they 
remain within a designated spectator area. All spectator vessels shall 
be anchored or operate at a No Wake Speed within the designated 
spectator area. On scene designated PATCOM representatives will direct 
spectator vessels to the spectator area. Spectators may contact the 
PATCOM to request permission to pass through the regulated area. If 
permission is granted, spectators must pass directly through the 
regulated area at safe speed and without loitering.
    (5) Buffer Area. This is a neutral zone that surrounds the 
perimeter of a Race Area or Marine Event Area within the regulated area 
described by this part. The purpose of a buffer zone is to minimize 
potential collision conflicts with marine event participants or race 
boats and spectator vessels or nearby transiting vessels. This zone 
provides separation between a Race Area or Marine Event Area and a 
specified Spectator Area or other vessels that are operating in the 
vicinity of the Special local regulated area for marine event.
    (6) Spectators. Spectators are only allowed inside the regulated 
area if they remain within a designated spectator area. Spectators may 
contact the PATCOM to request permission to either enter the Spectator 
Area or pass through the regulated area. If permission is granted, 
spectators may enter the Spectator Area or must pass directly through 
the regulated area as instructed by PATCOM at safe speed and without 
loitering.
    (d) Contact information. Questions about marine events should be 
addressed to the local Coast Guard Captain of the Port for the area in 
which the marine event is occurring. Contact information is listed 
below. For a description of the geographical area of each Coast Guard 
Sector--Captain of the Port zone, please see subpart 3.25 of this 
chapter.
    (1) Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay--Captain of the Port Zone, 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: (215) 271-4940.

North Carolina: (877) 229-0770 or (910) 362-4015.
    (e) Application for marine events. The application requirements of 
Sec.  100.15 of this part apply to all marine events listed in the 
Table to Sec.  100.501. For information on applying for a marine event 
permit, contact the Captain of the Port for the area in which the 
marine event will occur, at the phone numbers listed above.
    (f) Enforcement periods. The enforcement periods for each of the 
Special local regulations listed in the Table to Sec.  100.501 of this 
section are subject to change, but the duration of enforcement would 
remain the same or nearly the same total amount of time as stated in 
its table. In the event of a change, or for enforcement periods listed 
that do not allow a specific date or dates to be determined, the 
Captain of the Port will provide notice by publishing a Notice of 
Enforcement in the Federal Register, as well as, issuing a Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners.

    (a) Regulations. (1) The general regulations contained in 33 CFR 
165.23 and the regulations in this section apply to the fireworks 
safety zones listed in the Table to Sec.  165.506. These regulations 
will be enforced annually, for the duration of each fireworks event 
listed in the Table to Sec.  165.506. In the case of inclement weather, 
the event may be conducted on the day following the date listed in the 
Table to Sec.  165.506. Annual notice of the exact dates and times of 
the enforcement period of the regulation with respect to each safety 
zone, the geographical area, and other details concerning the nature of 
the fireworks event will be published in Local Notices to Mariners and 
via Broadcast Notice to Mariners over VHF-FM marine band radio.
    (2) All persons and vessels shall comply with the instructions of 
the Coast Guard Captain of the Port, Coast Guard Patrol Commander or 
the designated on-scene-patrol personnel. Those personnel are comprised 
of commissioned, warrant, and petty officers of the U.S. Coast Guard. 
Other Federal, State and local agencies may assist these personnel in 
the enforcement of the safety zone. Upon being hailed by a U.S. Coast 
Guard vessel by siren, radio, flashing light or other means, the 
operator of a vessel shall proceed as directed.
    (b) Notification. (1) Fireworks barges and launch sites on land 
that operate within the regulated areas contained in the Table to Sec.  
165.506 will have a sign affixed to the port and starboard side of the 
barge or mounted on a post 3 feet above ground level when on land 
immediately adjacent to the shoreline and facing the water labeled 
``FIREWORKS--DANGER--STAY AWAY''. This will provide on scene notice 
that the safety zone will be enforced on that day. This notice will 
consist of a diamond shaped sign 4 feet by 4 feet with a 3-inch orange 
retro reflective border. The word ``DANGER'' shall be 10 inch black 
block letters centered on the sign with the words ``FIREWORKS'' and 
``STAY AWAY'' in 6 inch black block letters placed above and below the 
word ``DANGER'' respectively on a white background.
    (2) Coast Guard Captains of the Port in the Fifth Coast Guard 
District will notify the public of the enforcement of these safety 
zones by all appropriate means to affect the widest publicity among the 
affected segments of the public. Publication in the Local Notice to 
Mariners, marine information broadcasts, and facsimile broadcasts may 
be made for these events, beginning 24 to 48 hours before the event is 
scheduled to begin, to notify the public.
    (c) Contact information. Questions about safety zones and related 
events should be addressed to the local Coast Guard Captain of the Port 
for the area in which the event is occurring. Contact information is 
listed below. For a description of the geographical area of each Coast 
Guard Sector--Captain of the Port zone, please see 33 CFR 3.25.
    (1) Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay--Captain of the Port Zone, 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: (215) 271-4940.
    (2) Coast Guard Sector Maryland-National Capital Region--Captain of 
the Port Zone, Baltimore, Maryland: (410) 576-2525.

    (d) Enforcement periods. The safety zones in the Table to Sec.  
165.506 will be enforced from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. each day a barge with 
a ``FIREWORKS--DANGER--STAY AWAY'' sign on the port and starboard side 
is on-scene or a ``FIREWORKS--DANGER--STAY AWAY'' sign is posted on 
land adjacent to the shoreline, in a location listed in the Table to 
Sec.  165.506. Vessels may not enter, remain in, or transit through the 
safety zones during these enforcement periods unless authorized by the 
Captain of the Port or designated Coast Guard patrol personnel on 
scene. The enforcement periods for each Safety Zone in the Table to 
Sec.  165.506 of this section are subject to change, but the duration 
of enforcement would remain the same or nearly the same total amount of 
time as stated in its table. In the event of a change, or for 
enforcement periods listed that do not allow a specific date or dates 
to be determined, the Captain of the Port will provide notice by 
publishing a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register, as well as, 
issuing a Broadcast Notice to Mariners.
