SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security E.O. Executive Order FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior E:\FR\FM\18APR1.SGM 18APR1 18222 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 73 / Tuesday, April 18, 2017 / Rules and Regulations 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 doing so would be impracticable. The Greater Greenville Development Foundation did not notify the Coast Guard that it will be sponsoring the ‘‘Delta Dragon Boat Race’’ on April 22, 2017 with sufficient time remaining to publish an NPRM. It is impracticable to publish an NPRM because we must establish this safety zone by April 22, 2017. We are issuing this rule, and under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this temporary rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. For the same reasons discussed in the preceding paragraph, waiting for a 30 day notice period to run would be impracticable. nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with RULES III. Legal Authority and Need for a Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1233. The COTP has determined that potential hazards posed to participants of a rowing regatta in Lake Ferguson would be a safety concern for anyone transiting this waterway in the vicinity of the Greenville boat launch in Greenville, Mississippi. The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of event participants and other waterway users before, during, and after the scheduled event in the navigable waters of Lake Ferguson. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a special local regulation, enforced from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 22, 2017. In light of the aforementioned hazards, the COTP has determined that a special local regulation is necessary to protect spectators, vessels, and participants. The special local regulation will encompass the following in Lake Ferguson in the vicinity of Greenville, MS: starting from a point on shore at 33°24.83′ N., 091°03.95′ W., proceeding 150 yards west-northwest into the lake at 33°24.88′ N., 091°04.02′ W., then proceeding approximately 390 yards south-southwest to 33°24.71′ N., 091°04.15′ W., then proceeding 160 yards east-southeast to a point on shore at 33°24.67′ N., 091°04.07′ W., before VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:31 Apr 17, 2017 Jkt 241001 returning north-northeast along the shoreline to the point of origin. This regulation prohibits entry by all vessels, mariners, and persons into the event area, an approximate 300-yard stretch of Lake Ferguson extending approximately 150-yards westnorthwest from the Greenville boat launch. All vessels transiting Lake Ferguson through the spectator zone, west-northwest of the regulated area to the state line, will be limited to slowest speed for safe navigation to minimize wake unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Memphis or an on-scene representative. 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 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’s use of this special local regulation will be only eight hours PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 in duration on a Saturday in April, and it is designed to minimize the impact on navigation. Moreover, vessels will be allowed to transit Lake Ferguson westnorthwest of the event area at the slowest speed for safe navigation to minimize wake. Overall, the Coast Guard expects minimal impact to vessel movement from the enforcement of this special local regulation. 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 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 might be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit or anchor in this portion of Lake Ferguson in the vicinity of Greenville, MS between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on April 22, 2017. 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 will 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 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 E:\FR\FM\18APR1.SGM 18APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 73 / Tuesday, April 18, 2017 / Rules and Regulations 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 will 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. 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 expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with RULES 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 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 involves the establishment of a special local regulation lasting eight hours on a Saturday in April. Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(h) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist and 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:31 Apr 17, 2017 Jkt 241001 message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places, or vessels.

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 doing so would be 
impracticable. The Greater Greenville Development Foundation did not 
notify the Coast Guard that it will be sponsoring the ``Delta Dragon 
Boat Race'' on April 22, 2017 with sufficient time remaining to publish 
an NPRM. It is impracticable to publish an NPRM because we must 
establish this safety zone by April 22, 2017.
    We are issuing this rule, and under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast 
Guard finds that good cause exists for making this temporary rule 
effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. 
For the same reasons discussed in the preceding paragraph, waiting for 
a 30 day notice period to run would be impracticable.

III. Legal Authority and Need for a Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 
1233. The COTP has determined that potential hazards posed to 
participants of a rowing regatta in Lake Ferguson would be a safety 
concern for anyone transiting this waterway in the vicinity of the 
Greenville boat launch in Greenville, Mississippi. The purpose of this 
rulemaking is to ensure the safety of event participants and other 
waterway users before, during, and after the scheduled event in the 
navigable waters of Lake Ferguson.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a special local regulation, enforced from 8 
a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 22, 2017. In light of the aforementioned 
hazards, the COTP has determined that a special local regulation is 
necessary to protect spectators, vessels, and participants. The special 
local regulation will encompass the following in Lake Ferguson in the 
vicinity of Greenville, MS: starting from a point on shore at 
33[deg]24.83' N., 091[deg]03.95' W., proceeding 150 yards west-
northwest into the lake at 33[deg]24.88' N., 091[deg]04.02' W., then 
proceeding approximately 390 yards south-southwest to 33[deg]24.71' N., 
091[deg]04.15' W., then proceeding 160 yards east-southeast to a point 
on shore at 33[deg]24.67' N., 091[deg]04.07' W., before returning 
north-northeast along the shoreline to the point of origin.
    This regulation prohibits entry by all vessels, mariners, and 
persons into the event area, an approximate 300-yard stretch of Lake 
Ferguson extending approximately 150-yards west-northwest from the 
Greenville boat launch. All vessels transiting Lake Ferguson through 
the spectator zone, west-northwest of the regulated area to the state 
line, will be limited to slowest speed for safe navigation to minimize 
wake unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Memphis 
or an on-scene representative.

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

    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's use of this special local regulation will be only 
eight hours in duration on a Saturday in April, and it is designed to 
minimize the impact on navigation. Moreover, vessels will be allowed to 
transit Lake Ferguson west-northwest of the event area at the slowest 
speed for safe navigation to minimize wake. Overall, the Coast Guard 
expects minimal impact to vessel movement from the enforcement of this 
special local regulation.

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 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 might 
be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to 
transit or anchor in this portion of Lake Ferguson in the vicinity of 
Greenville, MS between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on April 22, 2017.
    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 will 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 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 will 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.

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 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 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 involves the establishment of a special local 
regulation lasting eight hours on a Saturday in April. Normally such 
actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 
34(h) of Figure 2-1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental 
analysis checklist and 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.
