Regulatory Information 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 finds good cause 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 NPRM with respect to this rule as there is not enough time to complete notice and comment rulemaking before the event is scheduled to take place due to specific event details that were not provided by the event sponsor in time. For this reason, publishing an NPRM would be impracticable. We are issuing this rule, and under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making it effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. This rule is necessary for the safety of life on these navigable waters during the airplane race. For the reasons above, it VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:13 Apr 12, 2017 Jkt 241001 III. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis The Red Bull Air Race—San Diego 2017 event will involve low flying airplanes racing through a predetermined course of inflatable pylons situated on anchored barges and positioned in certain portions of San Diego Bay. The COTP San Diego has determined that potential hazards associated with the air race event would be a safety concern for anyone intending to operate on certain waters of San Diego Bay. The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of event participants, spectators and transiting vessels on the navigable waters of San Diego Bay before, during, and after the scheduled event. 33 U.S.C. 1233, authorizes the Coast Guard to establish and define special local regulations to promote the safety of life on navigable waters. IV. Discussion of the Rule In this temporary final rule, the regulations in 33 CFR 100.1101 will be temporarily inserted for Table 1, Item 19 of that section in order to reflect that the special local regulation will be effective and enforced from April 14, 2017, from 8:00 a.m.to 6:30 p.m., from April 15, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and from April 16, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This addition is needed to ensure that adequate regulations are in place to protect the safety vessels and individuals that may be present in the regulated area. No other portion of Table 1 of § 100.1101 or other provisions in § 100.1101 shall be affected by this regulation. The special local regulations are necessary to provide for the safety of the crew, spectators, participants, and other vessels and users of the San Diego Bay waterway. Persons and vessels will be prohibited from anchoring, blocking, loitering, or impeding within this regulated waterway unless authorized by the COTP, or his designated representative, during the event times. Additionally, the Patrol Commander (PATCOM) will control the movement of all vessels within the regulated area and will restrict vessels from entering the regulated area. Before the effective period, the Coast Guard will publish information on the event in the weekly LNM. The regulatory text appears at the end of this document. V. Regulatory Analysis We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 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). This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, duration, and time-of-day of the special local regulation. The Coast Guard will publish a LNM, issue a BNM via VHF– FM marine channel 16 that details the vessel restrictions of the regulated area, and distribute a special local regulation flyer for public use. 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. E:\FR\FM\13APR1.SGM 13APR1 17753 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 70 / Thursday, April 13, 2017 / Rules and Regulations 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the impacted portion of San Diego Bay, CA, from April 14, 2017, from 8:00 a.m.to 6:30 p.m., from April 15, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and from April 16, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: Vessel traffic will be allowed to pass through the area with permission of the COTP, or his designated representative, during a predefined schedule arranged by the event sponsor, and the special local regulation is limited in size and duration. The Coast Guard will issue maritime advisories widely available to all waterway users. Before the effective period, the Coast Guard will publish event information on the internet in the weekly LNM marine information report. 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 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 rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with RULES C. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Government 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:13 Apr 12, 2017 Jkt 241001 levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and 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 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 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. 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. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 100 Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Waterways. For the reasons discussed in the preamble, the Coast Guard amends 33 CFR part 100 as follows: PART 100—SAFETY OF LIFE ON NAVIGABLE WATERS 1. The authority citation for part 100 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1233. 2. In § 100.1101, at the end of Table 1 to § 100.1101, add item ‘‘19’’ to read as follows: ■ § 100.1101 Southern California Annual Marine Events for the San Diego Captain of the Port Zone. * * * * * TABLE 1 TO § 100.1101 F. Environment We have analyzed this 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 determined 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 involves establishment of marine event special local regulations on the navigable waters of San Diego Bay. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. A Record of Environmental Consideration (REC) supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under the ADDRESSES section of this preamble.

II. Regulatory Information

    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 finds good cause 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 NPRM with respect to this rule as 
there is not enough time to complete notice and comment rulemaking 
before the event is scheduled to take place due to specific event 
details that were not provided by the event sponsor in time. For this 
reason, publishing an NPRM would be impracticable.
    We are issuing this rule, and under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast 
Guard finds that good cause exists for making it effective less than 30 
days after publication in the Federal Register. This rule is necessary 
for the safety of life on these navigable waters during the airplane 
race. For the reasons above, it would be impracticable to delay this 
rule to provide a full 30 days notice.

III. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis

    The Red Bull Air Race--San Diego 2017 event will involve low flying 
airplanes racing through a predetermined course of inflatable pylons 
situated on anchored barges and positioned in certain portions of San 
Diego Bay. The COTP San Diego has determined that potential hazards 
associated with the air race event would be a safety concern for anyone 
intending to operate on certain waters of San Diego Bay.
    The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of event 
participants, spectators and transiting vessels on the navigable waters 
of San Diego Bay before, during, and after the scheduled event. 33 
U.S.C. 1233, authorizes the Coast Guard to establish and define special 
local regulations to promote the safety of life on navigable waters.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    In this temporary final rule, the regulations in 33 CFR 100.1101 
will be temporarily inserted for Table 1, Item 19 of that section in 
order to reflect that the special local regulation will be effective 
and enforced from April 14, 2017, from 8:00 a.m.to 6:30 p.m., from 
April 15, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and from April 16, 2017 
from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This addition is needed to ensure that 
adequate regulations are in place to protect the safety vessels and 
individuals that may be present in the regulated area. No other portion 
of Table 1 of Sec.  100.1101 or other provisions in Sec.  100.1101 
shall be affected by this regulation.
    The special local regulations are necessary to provide for the 
safety of the crew, spectators, participants, and other vessels and 
users of the San Diego Bay waterway. Persons and vessels will be 
prohibited from anchoring, blocking, loitering, or impeding within this 
regulated waterway unless authorized by the COTP, or his designated 
representative, during the event times. Additionally, the Patrol 
Commander (PATCOM) will control the movement of all vessels within the 
regulated area and will restrict vessels from entering the regulated 
area. Before the effective period, the Coast Guard will publish 
information on the event in the weekly LNM. The regulatory text appears 
at the end of this document.

V. Regulatory Analysis

    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

    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).
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, duration, and time-of-day of the special local regulation. 
The Coast Guard will publish a LNM, issue a BNM via VHF-FM marine 
channel 16 that details the vessel restrictions of the regulated area, 
and distribute a special local regulation flyer for public use.

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.

[[Page 17753]]

605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the 
following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or 
operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in the impacted 
portion of San Diego Bay, CA, from April 14, 2017, from 8:00 a.m.to 
6:30 p.m., from April 15, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and from 
April 16, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
    This rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities for the following reasons: Vessel 
traffic will be allowed to pass through the area with permission of the 
COTP, or his designated representative, during a predefined schedule 
arranged by the event sponsor, and the special local regulation is 
limited in size and duration. The Coast Guard will issue maritime 
advisories widely available to all waterway users. Before the effective 
period, the Coast Guard will publish event information on the internet 
in the weekly LNM marine information report. 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 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 rule or any policy or action of the 
Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Government

    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 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 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 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 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 determined 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 involves establishment of marine event special local regulations 
on the navigable waters of San Diego Bay. It is categorically excluded 
from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the 
Commandant Instruction. A Record of Environmental Consideration (REC) 
supporting this determination is available in the docket where 
indicated under the ADDRESSES section of this preamble. 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.
