SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History On December 29, 2016, the Sherwood Forest Club, Inc. of Sherwood Forest, MD notified the Coast Guard that from 9:15 p.m. to 10 p.m. on July 3, 2017, it will be conducting a fireworks display launched from the end of the Sherwood Forest Club main pier located adjacent to the Severn River, approximately 200 yards east of Brewer Pond in Sherwood Forest, MD. In the event of inclement weather, the fireworks display will be scheduled for July 7, 2017. In response, on April 6, 2017, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ‘‘Special Local Regulations and Safety Zones; Recurring Marine Events and Fireworks Displays Within the Fifth Coast Guard District’’ (82 FR 16746). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this fireworks display. During the comment period that ended May 8, 2017, we received two comments. While the Coast Guard has made the determination to issue a temporary final rule concerning this year’s fireworks display, USCG still plans to issue a final rule in the future to cover this recurring event in future years. PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29749 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. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be contrary to public interest because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with a fireworks display. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The COTP has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be used in this July 3, 2017 display will be a safety concern for anyone on the Severn River near the end of the Sherwood Forest Club main pier. The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the safety zone before, during, and after the scheduled event. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received two comments on our NPRM published April 6, 2017. Both comments addressed issues not related to this rulemaking. Therefore, there are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM based on the comments received. Details of the event were provided to the Coast Guard on May 15, 2017, that allowed the COTP to reassess the potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be used in this July 3, 2017 display. The area of the safety zone at the fireworks discharge site located at end of the Sherwood Forest Club main pier, listed in the Table to 33 CFR 165.506 under Coast Guard Sector Maryland-National Capital Region— COTP Zone as No. (b.)27, is reduced from a 200 yards radius to a 150 yards radius. As a result, there is one change in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. The safety zone will be reduced in size from 200 yards from the center point located at 39°01′54.0″ N., longitude 076°32′41.8″ W. to a 150 yard radius. 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.
