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. Patricia W. Silvey, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health.

Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security E.O. Executive order FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking Pub. L. Public Law § Section U.S.C. United States Code BILLING CODE 4510–43–P ACTION: (AOR). 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. Additionally, this one proposed rulemaking project reduces administrative costs involved in producing separate proposed rules for each individual recurring special local regulation and serves to provide notice of the known recurring special local regulations throughout the year. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before April 26, 2017. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2017–0010 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http:// www.regulations.gov. See the ‘‘Public Participation and Request for Comments’’ portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for further instructions on submitting comments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this proposed rule, call or email Petty Officer James Robinson, Sector Ohio Valley, U.S. Coast Guard; telephone (502) 779–5347, email James.C.Robinson@uscg.mil. 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 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 57 / Monday, March 27, 2017 / Proposed Rules 15175 under the new Table 1 for Sector Ohio Valley.

The effect of this proposed rule would be to restrict general navigation during these events. Vessels intending to transit the designated waterway through the special local regulations will only be allowed to transit the area when the COTP Ohio Valley, or designated representative, has deemed it safe to do so or at the completion of the event. pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and E.O.s, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors. A. Regulatory Planning and Review E.O.s 12866 (‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review’’) and 13563 (‘‘Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review’’) direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory VerDate Sep<11>2014 12:23 Mar 24, 2017 Jkt 241001 New Martinsville, WV. Louisville, KY ........ alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity. E.O.13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. Executive Order 13771 (‘‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs’’), directs agencies to reduce regulation and control regulatory costs and provides that ‘‘for every one new regulation issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination, and that the cost of planned regulations be prudently managed and controlled through a budgeting process.’’ The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not designated this rule a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Ohio River, Mile 602.0–604.0 (Kentucky). Accordingly, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not reviewed it. As this rule is not a significant regulatory action, this rule is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. See OMB’s Memorandum titled ‘‘Interim Guidance Implementing Section 2 of the Executive Order of January 30, 2017 titled ‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs’ ’’ (February 2, 2017). The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this proposed rule to be minimal, and therefore a full regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. This proposed rule establishes special local regulations limiting access to certain areas under 33 CFR part 100 within Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR. The effect of this proposed rulemaking will not be significant because these special local regulations are limited in scope and duration. Additionally, the public is given advance notification through local forms of notice, the Federal Register, E:\FR\FM\27MRP1.SGM 27MRP1 15176 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 57 / Monday, March 27, 2017 / Proposed Rules pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS and/or Notices of Enforcement and thus will be able to plan operations around the special local regulations in advance. Deviation from the special local regulations established through this proposed rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Broadcast Notices to Mariners and Local Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of these special local regulations so that they may plan accordingly for these short restrictions on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the restricted area. 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 proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 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 proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the special local regulation areas during periods of enforcement. The special local regulations would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because they are limited in scope and will be in effect for short periods of time. Before the enforcement period, the Coast Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories widely available to waterway users. Deviation from the special local regulations established through this proposed rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 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 proposed rule. If the proposed 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. Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine This proposed rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520.). VerDate Sep<11>2014 12:23 Mar 24, 2017 Jkt 241001 C. Collection of Information D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments A rule has implications for federalism under E.O. 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have 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 E.O. 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. 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 an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 F. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have 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 is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2, figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(h) of the Instruction because it involves establishment of special local regulations related to marine event permits for marine parades, regattas, and other marine events. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed 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. V. Public Participation and Request for Comments We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, and will consider all comments and material received during the comment period.

33 CFR Part 100

[Docket Number USCG-2017-0010]
RIN 1625-AA08


Special Local Regulations; Sector Ohio Valley Annual and 
Recurring Special Local Regulations Update

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is amending and updating its special local 
regulations relating to recurring marine parades, regattas, and other 
events that take place in the Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley area of 
responsibility (AOR). 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. Additionally, this one proposed rulemaking project 
reduces administrative costs involved in producing separate proposed 
rules for each individual recurring special local regulation and serves 
to provide notice of the known recurring special local regulations 
throughout the year.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before April 26, 2017.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-
2017-0010 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. See the ``Public Participation and Request for 
Comments'' portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for further 
instructions on submitting comments.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this proposed 
rule, call or email Petty Officer James Robinson, Sector Ohio Valley, 
U.S. Coast Guard; telephone (502) 779-5347, email 
James.C.Robinson@uscg.mil.

DHS Department of Homeland Security
E.O. Executive order
FR Federal Register
NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking
Pub. L. Public Law
Sec.  Section
U.S.C. United States Code

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 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

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

    The effect of this proposed rule would be to restrict general 
navigation during these events. Vessels intending to transit the 
designated waterway through the special local regulations will only be 
allowed to transit the area when the COTP Ohio Valley, or designated 
representative, has deemed it safe to do so or at the completion of the 
event.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize 
our analyses based on a number of these statutes and E.O.s, and we 
discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    E.O.s 12866 (``Regulatory Planning and Review'') and 13563 
(``Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review'') 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 including potential economic, environmental, 
public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity. 
E.O.13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. Executive Order 13771 (``Reducing Regulation and 
Controlling Regulatory Costs''), directs agencies to reduce regulation 
and control regulatory costs and provides that ``for every one new 
regulation issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for 
elimination, and that the cost of planned regulations be prudently 
managed and controlled through a budgeting process.''
    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not designated this 
rule a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive 
Order 12866. Accordingly, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has 
not reviewed it.
    As this rule is not a significant regulatory action, this rule is 
exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. See OMB's 
Memorandum titled ``Interim Guidance Implementing Section 2 of the 
Executive Order of January 30, 2017 titled `Reducing Regulation and 
Controlling Regulatory Costs' '' (February 2, 2017).
    The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this proposed rule 
to be minimal, and therefore a full regulatory evaluation is 
unnecessary. This proposed rule establishes special local regulations 
limiting access to certain areas under 33 CFR part 100 within Sector 
Ohio Valley's AOR. The effect of this proposed rulemaking will not be 
significant because these special local regulations are limited in 
scope and duration. Additionally, the public is given advance 
notification through local forms of notice, the Federal Register,

[[Page 15176]]

and/or Notices of Enforcement and thus will be able to plan operations 
around the special local regulations in advance. Deviation from the 
special local regulations established through this proposed rulemaking 
may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be 
considered on a case-by-case basis. Broadcast Notices to Mariners and 
Local Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of these 
special local regulations so that they may plan accordingly for these 
short restrictions on transit. Vessel traffic may request permission 
from the COTP Ohio Valley or a designated representative to enter the 
restricted area.

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 
proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    This proposed rule would affect the following entities, some of 
which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels 
intending to transit the special local regulation areas during periods 
of enforcement. The special local regulations would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
because they are limited in scope and will be in effect for short 
periods of time. Before the enforcement period, the Coast Guard COTP 
will issue maritime advisories widely available to waterway users. 
Deviation from the special local regulations established through this 
proposed rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and 
requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
    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 proposed rule. If the proposed 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.
    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 proposed rule or any 
policy or action of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed 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 E.O. 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the 
relationship between the national government and the States, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have 
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 E.O. 13175, 
Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because 
it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian 
tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian 
tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between 
the Federal Government and Indian tribes. 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 an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

F. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland 
Security Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction 
M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have 
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 is categorically excluded 
under section 2.B.2, figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(h) of the Instruction 
because it involves establishment of special local regulations related 
to marine event permits for marine parades, regattas, and other marine 
events. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the 
discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed 
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.

V. Public Participation and Request for Comments

    We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, 
and will consider all comments and material received during the comment 
period. Your comment can help shape the outcome of this rulemaking. If 
you submit a comment, please include the docket number for this 
rulemaking, indicate the specific section of this document to which
