Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes to amend the regulations established for recurring marine events and fireworks displays that take place within the Fifth Coast Guard District area of responsibility. This proposed rule would revise 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. Through this rulemaking, the list of recurring marine events requiring special local regulations or safety zones would be 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. This proposed rule would also remove regulations that are no longer effective or required. We invite your comments on this rulemaking. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before May 8, 2017. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2017–0064 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. SUMMARY: If you have questions about this proposed rulemaking, call or email Dennis Sens, Fifth Coast Guard District Office of FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: [FR Doc. 2017–06821 Filed 4–5–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6760–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY E:\FR\FM\06APP1.SGM 06APP1 16747 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 65 / Thursday, April 6, 2017 / Proposed Rules Waterways Management, U.S. Coast Guard; telephone 757–398–6204, Dennis.M.Sens@uscg.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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, Purpose, and Legal Basis 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. This rule would remove regulations no longer effective or required that continue to be listed in the CFR. The Tables in the CFR that list annual and recurring special local regulations and safety zones for marine events and fireworks displays within Fifth Coast Guard District area of responsibility (AOR) are published under 33 CFR 100.501 and 165.506, respectively. These Tables were last amended September 14, 2016 through a previous rulemaking (81 FR 63075), and generated no adverse comments. Like this NPRM, the September 2016 rule added, removed, and revised the Tables to 33 CFR 100.501 and 33 CFR 165.506 for recurring marine events and fireworks displays requiring special local regulations and safety zones. 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 proposed 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. 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. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule Special Local Regulations This proposed rule adds 3 new special local regulations for marine events, removes 1 regulation and revises 6 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. The Coast Guard proposes to revise regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by adding 3 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.

Masonboro Inlet, Banks channel, Motts channel, Wrightsville Beach, NC. The Coast Guard proposes to amend the regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by disestablishing the special local regulation previously listed in section (b.) of Table to 100.501; marine event— Maryland Swim for Life, Chester River, MD. The basis for removal of this marine event from regulatory enforcement includes limited vessel traffic in the area of the event, close proximity to shore, and shallow water depths. This rule proposes to revise 6 preexisting special local regulations that involve change to marine event date(s) and/or coordinates. These events are listed in Table 2, with reference by section as printed in the Table to § 100.501.

Based on the nature of marine events, large numbers of participants and spectators, and event locations, the Coast Guard has determined that the events listed in this rule could pose a VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Apr 05, 2017 Revision (date/coordinates) Location Jkt 241001 risk to participants or waterway users if normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the event.

In order to protect the safety of all waterway users including event participants and spectators, this E:\FR\FM\06APP1.SGM 06APP1 16748 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 65 / Thursday, April 6, 2017 / Proposed Rules rule would establish special local regulations for the time and location of each marine 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 a Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or petty officer who has been designated by the COTP to act on their behalf. On-scene patrol commanders may be augmented by local, State or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the Coast Guard. Safety Zones This rulemaking proposes to add 8 new safety zones, revise 15 previously established safety zones and remove 6 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 proposes to revise the regulations at 33 CFR 165.506 by adding 8 new safety zone locations to the permanent regulations listed in this section. The new safety zones are listed in Table 3, including reference by section as printed in the Table to § 165.506.

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. 16749 The regulatory text we are proposing appears at the end of this document. Temporary Regulations The Coast Guard proposes to amend regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 and 33 CFR 165.506 by removing the following 5 temporary sections listed in Table 6. These temporary sections are no longer effective but continue to appear in the CFR.

The Coast Guard is removing 33 CFR 165.540 that was previously established to facilitate a large multi-year dredging project in the coastal Cape Fear River area. This project was completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its contractors and accordingly a safety zone is no longer required for this purpose. IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed 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. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with PROPOSALS 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 NPRM has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Apr 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 77 77 78 78 79 FR FR FR FR FR 39630, 47520, 56611, 39601, 51490, Regulation expired July 5, 2012 ..............................

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 proposed 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 through a special local regulated area or safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A above, this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. These special local regulated areas and safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 July 8, 2012. September 29, 2012. October 4, 2013.

September 26, 2014. 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, permission to enter, remain in, or transit through these regulated areas during the enforcement may be given, when deemed safe to do so by the Coast Guard patrol commander on scene. 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 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed 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 proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. E:\FR\FM\06APP1.SGM 06APP1 16750 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 65 / Thursday, April 6, 2017 / Proposed Rules C. Collection of Information This proposed 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 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 proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with PROPOSALS 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 proposed 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 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 (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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Apr 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 This proposed 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 M16475.lD. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are not required for this section of the rule. This proposed 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 either a floating barge platform 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 M16475.lD. A preliminary environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this 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.

(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 the 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 will assign a marine event patrol, as described in § 100.40 of this part, to each regulated event listed in the table. Additionally, a PATCOM will be assigned to oversee the patrol. The marine event patrol and PATCOM may be contacted on VHF–FM Channel 16. (1) The PATCOM may terminate the event, or the operation of any vessel VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Apr 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 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) 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 the directions given. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both. (2) 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) Vessel operators may request permission to enter and transit through a regulated area by contacting the PATCOM on VHF–FM channel 16. When authorized to transit through the regulated area, vessels shall proceed at the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course that minimizes wake near the race course or marine event area. (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 and transit through 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 shall 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. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 16751 (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 are only allowed inside the regulated area if they remain within a designated spectator area. Spectators shall 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.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The EPA is proposing to fully approve a revision to Montana’s State Implementation Plan (SIP). On July 6, 2016, the Governor of Montana submitted to the EPA a revision to the Montana SIP that removed one section of the Administrative Rules of Montana (ARM) pertaining to aluminum plants. In this action, the EPA is proposing to approve the removal of this section from the SIP because the provision is inconsistent with Clean Air Act (CAA) requirements, as explained in the EPA’s June 12, 2015 startup, shutdown, and malfunction (SSM) SIP call for Montana. Removal of this provision will correct certain deficiencies related to the treatment of excess emissions from aluminum plants.

proposed rule would revise 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. Through this rulemaking, the list of 
recurring marine events requiring special local regulations or safety 
zones would be 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. This proposed rule would also remove regulations 
that are no longer effective or required. We invite your comments on 
this rulemaking.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before May 8, 2017.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-
2017-0064 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. See the ``Public Participation and Request for

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    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. This rule 
would remove regulations no longer effective or required that continue 
to be listed in the CFR.
    The Tables in the CFR that list annual and recurring special local 
regulations and safety zones for marine events and fireworks displays 
within Fifth Coast Guard District area of responsibility (AOR) are 
published under 33 CFR 100.501 and 165.506, respectively. These Tables 
were last amended September 14, 2016 through a previous rulemaking (81 
FR 63075), and generated no adverse comments. Like this NPRM, the 
September 2016 rule added, removed, and revised the Tables to 33 CFR 
100.501 and 33 CFR 165.506 for recurring marine events and fireworks 
displays requiring special local regulations and safety zones.
    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 proposed 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. 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.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

Special Local Regulations

    This proposed rule adds 3 new special local regulations for marine 
events, removes 1 regulation and revises 6 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.
    The Coast Guard proposes to revise regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 by 
adding 3 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.

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

    The Coast Guard proposes to amend the regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 
by disestablishing the special local regulation previously listed in 
section (b.) of Table to 100.501; marine event--Maryland Swim for Life, 
Chester River, MD. The basis for removal of this marine event from 
regulatory enforcement includes limited vessel traffic in the area of 
the event, close proximity to shore, and shallow water depths.
    This rule proposes to revise 6 preexisting special local 
regulations that involve change to marine event date(s) and/or 
coordinates. These events are listed in Table 2, with reference by 
section as printed in the Table to Sec.  100.501.

    Based on the nature of marine events, large numbers 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

[[Page 16748]]

rule would establish special local regulations for the time and 
location of each marine 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 a Coast Guard commissioned, 
warrant, or petty officer who has been designated by the COTP to act on 
their behalf. On-scene patrol commanders may be augmented by local, 
State or Federal officials authorized to act in support of the Coast 
Guard.

Safety Zones

    This rulemaking proposes to add 8 new safety zones, revise 15 
previously established safety zones and remove 6 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 proposes to revise the regulations at 33 CFR 
165.506 by adding 8 new safety zone locations to the permanent 
regulations listed in this section. The new safety zones are listed in 
Table 3, including reference by section as printed in the Table to 
Sec.  165.506.

[[Page 16749]]

    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.

Temporary Regulations

    The Coast Guard proposes to amend regulations at 33 CFR 100.501 and 
33 CFR 165.506 by removing the following 5 temporary sections listed in 
Table 6. These temporary sections are no longer effective but continue 
to appear in the CFR.

    The Coast Guard is removing 33 CFR 165.540 that was previously 
established to facilitate a large multi-year dredging project in the 
coastal Cape Fear River area. This project was completed by the U.S. 
Army Corps of Engineers and its contractors and accordingly a safety 
zone is no longer required for this purpose.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed 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 NPRM has not been designated 
a ``significant regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 12866. 
Accordingly, the NPRM 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 
proposed 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 
through a special local regulated area or safety zone may be small 
entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A above, this proposed 
rule would not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner 
or operator.
    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, permission to enter, remain in, or transit through 
these regulated areas during the enforcement may be given, when deemed 
safe to do so by the Coast Guard patrol commander on scene. 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 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed 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 proposed rule or any policy or action 
of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed 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 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 proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed rule has implications for federalism or 
Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER 
INFORMATION CONTACT section.

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 proposed 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 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 (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 proposed 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 M16475.lD. 
An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a 
Categorical Exclusion Determination are not required for this section 
of the rule.
    This proposed 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 either a floating barge platform 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 M16475.lD. A preliminary environmental analysis 
checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion 
Determination are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the 
discovery of a significant environmental impact from this 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.

4. Revise Sec.  100.501 to read as follows:


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

    The following regulations 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 the 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 will 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 will be assigned to 
oversee the patrol. The marine event patrol and PATCOM may be contacted 
on VHF-FM Channel 16. (1) 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) 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 the 
directions given. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the 
area, citation for failure to comply, or both.
    (2) 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) Vessel operators may request permission to enter and transit 
through a regulated area by contacting the PATCOM on VHF-FM channel 16. 
When authorized to transit through the regulated area, vessels shall 
proceed at the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course that 
minimizes wake near the race course or marine event area.
    (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 and 
transit through 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 shall 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 are only allowed inside the regulated area if they 
remain within a designated spectator area. Spectators shall 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.

Sec.  165.506  Safety Zones; Fireworks Displays in the Fifth Coast

    (a) Regulations. (1) The general regulations contained in 33 CFR 
165.23 apply.
    (2) The following regulations 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.
    (3) 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.
    (3) Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads--Captain of the Port Zone,

    (4) Coast Guard Sector North Carolina--Captain of the Port Zone, 
Wilmington, North Carolina: (877) 229-0770 or (910) 362-4015.
    (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.
