Collection of Information This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments A rule has implications for Federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.

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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History On February 03, 2016, the ‘‘5 to the 5’’ Vintage Hydros Organization notified the Coast Guard that it will be sponsoring a high-speed boat race from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on September 17 and September 18, 2016. The race will take place at Ohio River mile 557.5 to 558.5 in the vicinity of Madison, IN. The Captain of the Port Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the high-speed regatta would be a safety concern for anyone within in the proposed regulated area. 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.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because there is not time to complete the NPRM process due to unforeseen administrative delays. This event has been advertised to the local community and waterway users and it would be impracticable solicit public comment for this event because it must be in place on September 17 and September 18, 2016. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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. This rule is necessary for the safety of life during high-speed boat races on this section of navigable waters. It would be impracticable to delay this rule to provide a full 30 days notice because the event is scheduled and has been advertised to the local community to take place on September 17 and September 18, 2016. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1233. The Captain of the Port Ohio Valley (COTP) has deemed the potential hazards associated with the high-speed boat races to occur September 17 and September 18, 2016 will be a safety concern for anyone within the regulated area. The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels and spectators within the regulated area before, during, and after the scheduled event. IV. Discussion of the Rule As noted above, the Coast Guard will establish a special local regulation from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on September 17 and September 18, 2016. The special local regulation will cover all navigable waters from mile 557.5 to 558.5 on the Ohio River in the vicinity of Madison, IN. The duration of the regulated area is intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled event. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the special local regulation without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. Deviation requests will be considered and reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The COTP Ohio Valley may be contacted by telephone at 1–800–253– 7475 or can be reached by VHF–FM channel 16. Public notifications will be made to the local maritime community prior to the event through the Local Notice to Mariners, and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. V. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive Orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive Orders, and we discuss the First Amendment rights of protestors. A.
