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 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PROPOSALS II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On April 18, 2011 the Coast Guard published an NPRM in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677) entitled ‘‘Safety Zones; Annual Events Requiring Safety Zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone.’’ The NPRM proposed to establish 20 permanent safety zones for annually recurring events in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone under § 165.918. The NPRM was open for comment for 30 days. On June 2, 2011 the Coast Guard published the Final Rule in the Federal Register (76 FR 31839), after receiving no comments on the NPRM. Since that time there have been changes to the events that were listed in the Final Rule and additional annual events have been established. Through this proposed rule the Coast Guard seeks to update § 165.918 to reflect the current status of recurring marine events in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone. The legal basis for this proposed rulemaking is found at 33 U.S.C. 1231; 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie (COTP) has determined that an amendment to the recurring safety zones list as published in 33 CFR 165.918 will be necessary to: update the location, date, and size of eighteen existing safety zones (Marquette Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Munising Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Sault Sainte Marie Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Mackinac Island Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Harbor Springs Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Bay Harbor Yacht Club Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Petoskey Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Boyne City Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Alpena Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Charlevoix Venetian Festival Friday Night Fireworks, Charlevoix Venetian Festival Saturday Night Fireworks, Elk Rapids Harbor Days Fireworks, Jordan Valley Freedom Festival Fireworks, Canada Day Celebration Fireworks, Festival of Fireworks Celebration Fireworks, Grand VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Mar 20, 2018 Jkt 244001 Marais Splash In, National Cherry Festival Airshow, and National Cherry Festival Finale Fireworks), establish three safety zones (Mackinaw Area Visitors Bureau Friday Night Fireworks, Nautical City Fireworks, and Traverse City Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks), remove National Cherry Festival Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks and St. Ignace Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks safety zones, and format the existing regulations into a table format. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the safety zone before, during, and after the scheduled events and to improve the overall clarity and readability of the rule. The regulatory text we are proposing appears at the end of this document. The amendments to this proposed rule are necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and people during annual events taking place on or near federally maintained waterways in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone. Although this proposed rule will be in effect year-round, the specific safety zones listed in Table 165.918 will only be enforced during a specified period of time. When a Notice of Enforcement for a particular safety zone is published, entry into, transiting through, or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie, or his or her designated representative. The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie or his or her designated representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16 or telephone at 906– 635–3319. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. V. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed 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 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 NPRM has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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. This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, duration, and time-of-day for each safety zone. Vessel traffic will be able to safely transit around all safety zones which will impact small designated areas within the COTP zone for short durations of time. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the zone and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to enter the zone. 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. While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety zones may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section V.A above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. 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. E:\FR\FM\21MRP1.SGM 21MRP1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 55 / Wednesday, March 21, 2018 / Proposed Rules 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 Executive Order 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 proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. Also, this proposed 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. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PROPOSALS 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 proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed rule involves the update of eighteen safety zone locations, dates, and sizes, the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Mar 20, 2018 Jkt 244001 addition of three safety zones, the removal of two safety zones, and the reformatting of regulations into an easier to read table format. Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 01. A preliminary Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is 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. V. Public Participation and Request for Comments We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, and will consider all comments and material received during the comment period.

[Docket Number USCG-2018-0198]
RIN 1625-AA00


Safety Zones; Recurring Safety Zones in Captain of the Port Sault 
Sainte Marie Zone

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes to amend its recurring safety zones 
regulations in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone. This 
proposed rule would update eighteen safety zone locations, dates, and 
sizes, add three safety zones, remove two established safety zones, and 
reformat the regulations into an easier to read table format. These 
proposed amendments will protect spectators, participants, and vessels 
from the hazards associated with annual marine events and firework 
shows, and improve the clarity and readability of the regulation. We 
invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before April 20, 2018.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-
2018-0198 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. Type the docket number (USCG-2018-0198) in the 
``SEARCH'' box and click ``SEARCH.'' See the ``Public Participation and 
Request for Comments'' portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section 
for further instructions on submitting comments.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this rule, 
call or email Lieutenant Junior Grade Sean V. Murphy, Chief of 
Waterways Management, Coast Guard Sector Sault Sainte Marie, U.S. Coast 
Guard; telephone 906-635-3223, email [email protected].

U.S.C. United States Code

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    On April 18, 2011 the Coast Guard published an NPRM in the Federal 
Register (76 FR 21677) entitled ``Safety Zones; Annual Events Requiring 
Safety Zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone.'' The 
NPRM proposed to establish 20 permanent safety zones for annually 
recurring events in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone 
under Sec.  165.918. The NPRM was open for comment for 30 days.
    On June 2, 2011 the Coast Guard published the Final Rule in the 
Federal Register (76 FR 31839), after receiving no comments on the 
NPRM. Since that time there have been changes to the events that were 
listed in the Final Rule and additional annual events have been 
established. Through this proposed rule the Coast Guard seeks to update 
Sec.  165.918 to reflect the current status of recurring marine events 
in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone.
    The legal basis for this proposed rulemaking is found at 33 U.S.C. 
1231; 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05-1, 6.04-1, 6.04-6, and 160.5; 
Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie (COTP) has determined 
that an amendment to the recurring safety zones list as published in 33 
CFR 165.918 will be necessary to: update the location, date, and size 
of eighteen existing safety zones (Marquette Fourth of July Celebration 
Fireworks, Munising Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Sault Sainte 
Marie Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Mackinac Island Fourth of 
July Celebration Fireworks, Harbor Springs Fourth of July Celebration 
Fireworks, Bay Harbor Yacht Club Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, 
Petoskey Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks, Boyne City Fourth of 
July Celebration Fireworks, Alpena Fourth of July Celebration 
Fireworks, Charlevoix Venetian Festival Friday Night Fireworks, 
Charlevoix Venetian Festival Saturday Night Fireworks, Elk Rapids 
Harbor Days Fireworks, Jordan Valley Freedom Festival Fireworks, Canada 
Day Celebration Fireworks, Festival of Fireworks Celebration Fireworks, 
Grand Marais Splash In, National Cherry Festival Airshow, and National 
Cherry Festival Finale Fireworks), establish three safety zones 
(Mackinaw Area Visitors Bureau Friday Night Fireworks, Nautical City 
Fireworks, and Traverse City Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks), 
remove National Cherry Festival Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks 
and St. Ignace Fourth of July Celebration Fireworks safety zones, and 
format the existing regulations into a table format. The purpose of 
this rule is to ensure safety of vessels and the navigable waters in 
the safety zone before, during, and after the scheduled events and to 
improve the overall clarity and readability of the rule. The regulatory 
text we are proposing appears at the end of this document.
    The amendments to this proposed rule are necessary to ensure the 
safety of vessels and people during annual events taking place on or 
near federally maintained waterways in the Captain of the Port Sault 
Sainte Marie Zone. Although this proposed rule will be in effect year-
round, the specific safety zones listed in Table 165.918 will only be 
enforced during a specified period of time.
    When a Notice of Enforcement for a particular safety zone is 
published, entry into, transiting through, or anchoring within the 
safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port 
Sault Sainte Marie, or his or her designated representative. The 
Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie or his or her designated 
representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16 or telephone at 906-
635-3319. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety 
zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated 
representative.

V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed 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

    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 NPRM has not been 
designated a ``significant regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 
12866. Accordingly, the NPRM 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.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, duration, and time-of-day for each safety zone. Vessel 
traffic will be able to safely transit around all safety zones which 
will impact small designated areas within the COTP zone for short 
durations of time. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the zone and the 
rule allows vessels to seek permission to enter the zone.

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.
    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the 
safety zones may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section 
V.A above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on any 
vessel owner or operator.
    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.

[[Page 12309]]

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 Executive Order 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 proposed rule under that Order and 
have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 
13132.
    Also, this proposed 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.

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 proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed rule involves the update 
of eighteen safety zone locations, dates, and sizes, the addition of 
three safety zones, the removal of two safety zones, and the 
reformatting of regulations into an easier to read table format. 
Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review 
under paragraph L60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 
023-01-001-01, Rev. 01. A preliminary Record of Environmental 
Consideration supporting this determination is 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.

V. Public Participation and Request for Comments

    We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, 
and will consider all comments and material received during the comment 
period. Your comment can help shape the outcome of this rulemaking. If 
you submit a comment, please include the docket number for this 
rulemaking, indicate the specific section of this document to which

2. Revise Sec.  165.918 to read as follows:


Sec.  165.918   Safety Zones; Recurring Safety Zones in Captain of the 
Port Sault Sainte Marie.

    (a) Regulations. The following regulations apply to the safety 
zones listed in Table 165.918 of this section:
    (1) In accordance with the general regulations in Sec.  
[thinsp]165.23 of this part, entry into, transiting, or anchoring 
within any of the safety zones listed in this section is prohibited 
unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie, or a 
designated representative.
    (2) All persons and vessels must comply with the instructions of 
the Coast Guard Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie or a designated 
representative. Upon being hailed by the U.S. Coast Guard by siren, 
radio, flashing light or other means, the operator of a vessel shall 
proceed as directed.
    (3) When a safety zone established by this section is being 
enforced, all vessels must obtain permission from the Captain of the 
Port Sault Sainte Marie or a designated representative to enter, move 
within, or exit that safety zone. Vessels and persons granted 
permission to enter the safety zone must obey all lawful orders or 
directions of the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie or a 
designated representative. While within a safety zone, all vessels 
shall operate at the minimum speed necessary to maintain a safe course.
    (b) Suspension of Enforcement. If the event concludes earlier than 
scheduled, the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie or a designated 
representative will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners notifying the 
public that enforcement of the respective safety zone is suspended.
    (c) Exemption. Public vessels, defined as any vessel owned or 
operated by the United States or by State or local

[[Page 12310]]

governments, operating in an official capacity are exempted from the 
requirements of this section.
    (d) Waiver. For any vessel, the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte 
Marie or a designated representative may, at his or her discretion, 
waive any of the requirements of this section, upon finding that 
circumstances are such that application of this section is unnecessary 
or impractical for the purposes of safety or environmental safety.
    (e) Contacting the Captain of the Port. While a safety zone listed 
in this section is enforced, the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie 
or a designated representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16 or 
telephone at (906) 635-3319. Vessel operators given permission to enter 
or operate in a safety zone must comply with all directions given to 
them by the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie, or a designated 
representative.
    (f) Notice of Enforcement. The Coast Guard will provide advance 
notice of the enforcement including specific date, time, and size of 
the safety zone being enforced in Table 165.918, by issuing a Notice of 
Enforcement, as well as, a Broadcast Notice to Mariners.
