This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Vivian Airport, Vivian, LA, in support of IFR operations at the airport. History The FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 22093, May 12, 2017), Docket No. FAA–2017–0298 a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Vivian Airport, Vivian, LA.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation on the waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the vicinity of Islamorada, FL during the Islamorada Grand Prix of the Seas highspeed boat race. Approximately 70 highspeed boats and personal watercraft are expected to participate in the race, in addition to spectators. The special local regulation is necessary to ensure the safety of race participants, participant vessels, spectators, and the general public on navigable waters of the United States during the event. The special local regulation will establish two regulated areas: a race area and buffer zone; and a spectator area. This special local regulation prohibits nonparticipant persons and vessels from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the race area or SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 38823 buffer zone and prohibits vessels from transiting in excess of wake speed within the spectator area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Key West or a designated representative.

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 The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because insufficient time remains to publish an NPRM and to receive public comments, as the Islamorada Grand Prix event will occur before the rulemaking process would be completed. Because of the dangers associated with high-speed races in the marine environment, the special local regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of event participants, spectators, the general public, and vessels transiting the event area. For those reasons, it would be impracticable to publish an NPRM. For the reason discussed above, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this E:\FR\FM\16AUR1.SGM 16AUR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described 
in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, 
the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Vivian Airport, Vivian, LA, in support of IFR operations at 
the airport.

History

    The FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 22093, May 12, 
2017), Docket No. FAA-2017-0298 a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Vivian Airport, Vivian, LA. Interested parties were invited 
to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments 
on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 
2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 
2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface within a 6.3-mile radius of Vivian Airport. The segment 
within 1.4 miles each side of the 298[deg] radial of the Shreveport 
VORTAC extending from the 6.3-mile radius to 7.5 miles northwest of the 
airport is removed due to the

[[Page 38823]]

decommissioning of the Vivian NDB, and cancellation of the NDB 
approach. The VOR approach was previously redesigned to use the Vivian 
NDB when the Shreveport VORTAC was changed to the Belcher VORTAC, but 
was never noted in the airspace description. This action enhances the 
safety and management of the standard instrument approach procedures 
for IFR operations at the airport.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' 
under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under 
DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 
1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation 
as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter 
that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected 
to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
