Examinations of Working Places in Metal and Nonmetal Mines, 15173-15174 [2017-05979]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 57 / Monday, March 27, 2017 / Proposed Rules body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action. 1.

This notice informs the public of regularly scheduled events that require additional safety measures through establishing a special local regulation. Through this notice the current list of recurring special local regulations is updated with revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR. When these special local regulations are enforced, certain restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis The Captain of the Port (COTP) Ohio Valley is proposing to establish, amend, and update its current list of recurring special local regulations. These special local regulations are proposed to be added, amended, and updated to the list of annually recurring special local regulations under 33 CFR 100.801 in Table no. 1 for annual special local regulations in the COTP Ohio Valley zone. The Coast Guard will address all comments accordingly, whether through response, additional revision to the regulation, or otherwise. Additionally, these recurring events are provided to the public through local PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 avenues and planned by the local communities. The current list of annual and recurring special local regulations occurring in Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR is published under 33 CFR part 100.801. That most recent list was created January 25, 2016 through the rulemaking 81 FR 3976. The Coast Guard’s authority for establishing a special local regulation is contained at 33 U.S.C. 1233. The Coast Guard is amending and updating the special local regulations under 33 CFR part 100 to include the most up to date list of recurring special local regulations for events held on or around navigable waters within Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR. These events include marine parades, boat races, swim events, and other marine related events. The current list under 33 CFR 100.801 requires amending to provide new information on existing special local regulations, updating to include new special local regulations expected to recur annually or biannually, and to remove special local regulations that are no longer required. Issuing individual regulations for each new special local regulation, amendment, or removal of an existing special local regulation creates unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This single proposed rulemaking will considerably reduce administrative overhead and provides the public with notice through publication in the Federal Register of the upcoming recurring special local regulations. The Coast Guard encourages the public to participate in this proposed rulemaking through the comment process so that any necessary changes can be identified and implemented in a timely and efficient manner. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule 33 CFR part 100 contains regulations to provide effective control over regattas and marine parades conducted on U.S. navigable waters in order to ensure the safety of life in the regattas or marine parade area. Section 100.801 provides the regulations applicable to events taking place in the Eighth Coast Guard District and also provides a table listing each event and special local regulation. This section requires amendment from time to time to properly reflect the recurring special local regulations in Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR. This proposed rule amends and updates Section 100.801 replacing the current Table 1 for Sector Ohio Valley. Additionally, this proposed rule would add 12 new recurring special local regulations and removes 06 special local regulations as follows: 12 added E:\FR\FM\27MRP1.SGM 27MRP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Delay of Effective Date

    On January 23, 2017, MSHA published a Final Rule in the Federal 
Register (82 FR 7680) amending the Agency's standards for the 
examination of working places in metal and nonmetal mines. The final 
rule was scheduled to become effective on May 23, 2017. On January 20, 
2017, the Chief of Staff of the White House released a memorandum 
titled ``Regulatory Freeze Pending Review'' to ``ensure that the 
President's appointees or designees have the opportunity to review any 
new or pending regulations . . . .'' 82 FR 8346, January 24, 2017. 
Among other things, the memorandum directed the heads of executive 
departments and agencies to consider temporarily postponing the 
effective dates of all regulations that had been published in the 
Federal Register but had not yet taken effect.
    In keeping with MSHA's standard implementation practices, MSHA 
would

develop and distribute additional compliance assistance materials to 
post on the Agency's Web site (www.msha.gov). Compliance assistance 
materials would include templates for workplace examinations for 
different mining environments that would facilitate compliance and 
minimize mine operator recordkeeping burden. MSHA would make these 
compliance assistance materials available at a number of informational 
stakeholder meetings at various locations around the country. MSHA also 
understands that mine operators may need time to adjust schedules, 
develop additional recordkeeping capacity, and in other ways modify the 
way they currently do business to comply with the rule. For these 
reasons, MSHA is proposing to extend the rule's effective date to July 
24, 2017.
    MSHA is committed to assuring that mine operators and miners 
affected by the examinations final rule have the training and 
compliance assistance they need prior to the rule's effective date. As 
part of the outreach and compliance assistance process, MSHA would 
consider issues raised by stakeholders and consider further extending 
the effective date in order to determine if these issues can be 
reasonably addressed through compliance assistance and training. MSHA 
also seeks comments regarding the appropriate length of the proposed 
extension.
