ACTION: Final rule. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers published a document in the Federal Register on May 24, 2011, amending its regulations to establish a restricted area in the Menominee River at the Marinette Marine Corporation Shipyard in Marinette, Wisconsin. The Corps published correcting amendments in the Federal Register on April 4, 2012, which corrected latitude and longitude coordinates and also revised administrative and enforcement responsibilities. The Corps is further amending these regulations to expand the existing restricted area to provide additional area of protection during the construction and launching of Littoral Combat Ships. The expansion would result in temporary encroachment within the Menominee River Federal Navigation Channel. The regulations are necessary to provide adequate protection of U.S. Navy (USN) combat vessels, their materials, equipment to be installed therein, and crew, while located at the Marinette Marine Corporation Shipyard. DATES: Effective December 18, 2017. ADDRESSES: Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Operations and Regulatory Community of Practice, 441 G Street NW., Washington, DC 20314– 1000.

Huber, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, Regulatory Branch, at 651–290–5859 or by email at ryan.j.huber@ usace.army.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities under Section 7 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 State 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat. 892; 33 U.S.C. 3), the Corps is amending restricted area regulations at 33 CFR part 334 by revising § 334.815 to nshattuck on DSK9F9SC42PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:33 Nov 15, 2017 Jkt 244001 expand the previously established restricted area in the Menominee River, at the Marinette Marine Corporation Shipyard, Marinette, Wisconsin. The amendment would also add a provision of disestablishment whereby the restricted area would be disestablished by no later than November 17, 2025. By correspondence dated October 29, 2015, the Department of the Navy, requested that the Corps of Engineers amend the regulations concerning this restricted area. On August 11, 2016, the Corps’ St. Paul District issued a local public notice soliciting comments on the proposed rule from all known interested parties and no comments were received. The proposed rule was published in the August 10, 2016 edition of the Federal Register (81 FR 52781) with the docket number COE–2016–0005 and one comment was received. One commenter requested that the first set of coordinates be recalculated to ensure correct position along the shoreline and asked that the final rule include an explicit statement in regards to the horizontal datum used. The Corps responded to the comment by recalculating and updating the first set of coordinates as well as adding a statement in the final rule in regards to the horizontal datum used. Procedural Requirements 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 13771 directs agencies to control regulatory costs through a budgeting process. This proposed rule has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this proposed rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. The Corps has made a determination this proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action. This regulatory action determination is based on the size and location of the restricted area. The restricted area does not occupy the entire Federal navigation channel near the shipyard and vessels utilizing that channel can transit around the restricted area. An operator of a vessel may also transit the restricted area as long as he or she obtains permission from the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair, USN, Bath, ME or his/her authorized representative. PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 Corps certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. While some owners or operators of vessels that intend to transit the restricted area may be small entities, for the reasons stated in paragraph (a) above this rule would not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. In addition, the restricted area is necessary to address a major antiterrorism and safety concern due to the lack of perimeter fencing or physical denial system. Small entities can utilize navigable waters outside of the restricted area. Small entities may also transit the restricted area as long as they obtain permission from the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair, USN, Bath, ME or his/her authorized representative. The restricted area is necessary to provide adequate protection of U.S. Navy combat vessels, their materials, equipment to be installed therein, and crew, while located at the Marinette Marine Corporation Shipyard. The restricted area does not occupy the entire Federal navigation channel near the shipyard and vessels utilizing that channel can transit around the restricted area, or obtain permission to transit the restricted area. After considering the economic impacts of this restricted area regulation on small entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. An environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared. We have concluded that the establishment of the restricted area will not have a significant impact to the quality of the human environment and, therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. The final EA and Finding of No Significant Impact may be reviewed at the District Office listed at the end of the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section, above. d. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.

United States Navy Restricted Area, Menominee River, Marinette 
Marine Corporation Shipyard, Marinette, Wisconsin

AGENCY: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DoD.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers published a document in the 
Federal Register on May 24, 2011, amending its regulations to establish 
a restricted area in the Menominee River at the Marinette Marine 
Corporation Shipyard in Marinette, Wisconsin. The Corps published 
correcting amendments in the Federal Register on April 4, 2012, which 
corrected latitude and longitude coordinates and also revised 
administrative and enforcement responsibilities. The Corps is further 
amending these regulations to expand the existing restricted area to 
provide additional area of protection during the construction and 
launching of Littoral Combat Ships. The expansion would result in 
temporary encroachment within the Menominee River Federal Navigation 
Channel. The regulations are necessary to provide adequate protection 
of U.S. Navy (USN) combat vessels, their materials, equipment to be 
installed therein, and crew, while located at the Marinette Marine 
Corporation Shipyard.

DATES: Effective December 18, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Operations and 
Regulatory Community of Practice, 441 G Street NW., Washington, DC 
20314-1000.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. David Olson, Headquarters, 
Operations and Regulatory Community of Practice, Washington, DC at 202-

Branch, at 651-290-5859 or by email at ryan.j.huber@usace.army.mil.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to its authorities under Section 7 
of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1917 (40 State 266; 33 U.S.C. 1) and 
Chapter XIX of the Army Appropriations Act of 1919 (40 Stat. 892; 33 
U.S.C. 3), the Corps is amending restricted area regulations at 33 CFR 
part 334 by revising Sec.  334.815 to expand the previously established 
restricted area in the Menominee River, at the Marinette Marine 
Corporation Shipyard, Marinette, Wisconsin. The amendment would also 
add a provision of disestablishment whereby the restricted area would 
be disestablished by no later than November 17, 2025. By correspondence 
dated October 29, 2015, the Department of the Navy, requested that the 
Corps of Engineers amend the regulations concerning this restricted 
area.
    On August 11, 2016, the Corps' St. Paul District issued a local 
public notice soliciting comments on the proposed rule from all known 
interested parties and no comments were received. The proposed rule was 
published in the August 10, 2016 edition of the Federal Register (81 FR 
52781) with the docket number COE-2016-0005 and one comment was 
received. One commenter requested that the first set of coordinates be 
recalculated to ensure correct position along the shoreline and asked 
that the final rule include an explicit statement in regards to the 
horizontal datum used. The Corps responded to the comment by 
recalculating and updating the first set of coordinates as well as 
adding a statement in the final rule in regards to the horizontal datum 
used.

Procedural Requirements

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 13771 directs agencies to control 
regulatory costs through a budgeting process. This proposed rule has 
not been designated a ``significant regulatory action,'' under 
Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this proposed rule has not been 
reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and pursuant to 
OMB guidance it is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 
13771.
    The Corps has made a determination this proposed rule is not a 
significant regulatory action. This regulatory action determination is 
based on the size and location of the restricted area. The restricted 
area does not occupy the entire Federal navigation channel near the 
shipyard and vessels utilizing that channel can transit around the 
restricted area. An operator of a vessel may also transit the 
restricted area as long as he or she obtains permission from the 
Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair, USN, Bath, ME or 
his/her authorized representative.

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 Corps certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule would not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. While some owners or operators of vessels that intend to 
transit the restricted area may be small entities, for the reasons 
stated in paragraph (a) above this rule would not have a significant 
economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. In addition, the 
restricted area is necessary to address a major anti-terrorism and 
safety concern due to the lack of perimeter fencing or physical denial 
system. Small entities can utilize navigable waters outside of the 
restricted area. Small entities may also transit the restricted area as 
long as they obtain permission from the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, 
Conversion and Repair, USN, Bath, ME or his/her authorized 
representative. The restricted area is necessary to provide adequate 
protection of U.S. Navy combat vessels, their materials, equipment to 
be installed therein, and crew, while located at the Marinette Marine 
Corporation Shipyard. The restricted area does not occupy the entire 
Federal navigation channel near the shipyard and vessels utilizing that 
channel can transit around the restricted area, or obtain permission to 
transit the restricted area. After considering the economic impacts of 
this restricted area regulation on small entities, I certify that this 
action will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of 
small entities.
    c. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act. An 
environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared. We have concluded that 
the establishment of the restricted area will not have a significant 
impact to the quality of the human environment and, therefore, 
preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. The 
final EA and Finding of No Significant Impact may be reviewed at the 
District Office listed at the end of the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION 
CONTACT section, above.
    d. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act. This rule does not impose an 
enforceable duty among the private

[[Page 53423]]

sector and, therefore, is not a Federal private sector mandate and is 
not subject to the requirements of Section 202 or 205 of the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act (Pub. L. 104-4, 109 Stat. 48, 2 U.S.C. 1501 et 
seq.). We have also found, under Section 203 of the Act, that small 
governments will not be significantly or uniquely affected by this 
rule.
