Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary security zone in the vicinity of the Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida during the visit of a highlevel government official. The security zone is necessary to protect the official party, the public, and the surrounding waterway from terrorist acts, sabotage or other subversive acts, accidents, or other causes of a similar nature. Entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within this security zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami or a designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective without actual notice from March 28, 2017 through May 29, 2017. For purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from March 17, 2017 through March 28, 2017.

SUMMARY: mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with RULES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 16:44 Mar 27, 2017 III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The Captain of the Port Miami (COTP) has determined that the official’s visit presents a potential target for terrorist acts, sabotage, or other subversive acts, accidents, or other causes of a similar nature. Given the close proximity of the waterways to the official’s visit site, this security zone is necessary to protect the official party, the public, and the surrounding waterways adjacent to the Mar-a-Lago Resort in Palm Beach, Florida. IV. Discussion of the Rule I. Table of Abbreviations VerDate Sep<11>2014 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 specific information regarding the need for the regulation was not received in time to publish a NPRM before the regulation’s effective date. Delay in promulgating this rule would be impracticable and contrary to public interest because a security zone is required with short notice to protect the elected government official and the official’s party in the vicinity of this waterway. The official’s presence creates unique safety and security concerns. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register for the same reasons discussed above. We note that the Coast Guard is in the process of publishing an NPRM proposing to establish a permanent security zone for these events. While that rulemaking action will not affect the events occurring through May 29, 2017, it would establish a security zone for future similar events. Jkt 241001 This rule establishes a security zone from March 17, 2017 through May 29, 2017. The rule will be enforced every Friday through Monday on a recurring weekly basis from March 17, 2017 through May 29, 2017 during the visit PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 15293 of a high-level government official. This rule will be enforced with actual notice while the high-level government official is visiting. This rule establishes a temporary security zone, which encompasses certain waters of the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean in the vicinity of the Southern Boulevard Bridge in Palm Beach, Florida. The security zone will be broken into three zones. The first zone will consist of waters of the Lake Worth Lagoon from the southern tip of the Everglades Island to approximately 1000 yards south of the Southern Boulevard Bridge, and the eastern shore line out to Fisherman Island. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain in the first zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. The second zone will consist of waters of the Lake Worth Lagoon including the Intracoastal Waterway from the southern tip of the Everglades Island to approximately 1000 yards south of the Southern Boulevard Bridge, and from the western shore line to the western edge of the Fisherman Island. All vessels transiting the second zone shall maintain a steady speed and shall not slow or stop in the zone. The third zone will consist of waters of the Atlantic Ocean from the Banyan Road south to Ocean View Road, and from shore to approximately 1000 yards east of the shoreline. All vessels transiting the third zone shall maintain a steady speed and shall not slow or stop in the zone. 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, it has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.
