Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes to amend its safety zone regulations for annual events in Coast Guard Sector Upper Mississippi River. This proposed rule would add one new recurring safety zone, remove four safety zones, and amend the sponsor/name, date, and/or safety zones for three recurring safety zones already listed in the current table. This action is necessary to protect spectators, participants, and vessels from the hazards associated with annual marine events. This proposed rulemaking would restrict vessel traffic from the safety zones during the events unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Upper Mississippi River or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking. SUMMARY: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before May 17, 2018. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2018–0038 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http:// www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port Sector Upper Mississippi River DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 16811 II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis The Captain of the Port Sector Upper Mississippi River (COTP) proposes to amend 33 CFR 165.801 to update the table of annual fireworks displays and other marine-related events in Coast Guard Sector Upper Mississippi River. The current list of annual and recurring safety zones in Sector Upper Mississippi River is published in Table 2 of 33 CFR 165.801. That most recent table was created through the final rule published on June 21, 2017 (82 FR 28235). The current table in 33 CFR 165.801 needs to be amended to include new safety zones expected to recur annually or biannually, remove safety zones no longer recurring, and provide new information on existing safety zones. The proposed annually recurring safety zones are necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the events. Based on the nature of these marine events, large numbers of participants and spectators, and event locations, the COTP has determined that the events listed in this proposed rule could pose a risk to participants or waterways users if the normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the events. Possible hazards include risks of injury or death from near or actual contact among participant vessels and spectators or mariners traversing through the safety zone. In order to protect the safety of all waterway users, including event participants and spectators, this proposed rule would establish safety zones for the time and location of each marine event. This purpose of this proposed rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels on the navigable waters in the safety zones during the scheduled events. Vessels would not be permitted to enter the safety zone unless authorized by the COTP or a designated representative. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The COTP proposes to amend its safety zone regulations for annual events in Coast Guard Sector Upper Mississippi River listed in Table 2 of 33 CFR 165.801. This section requires amendment from time to time to properly reflect the recurring safety zone regulations in Sector Upper Mississippi River. This rule would add one new recurring safety zone, remove four no longer recurring safety zones, and amend the sponsor/name, date, and/or safety zones for three recurring safety zones already listed in the current table. Other than this one new safety E:\FR\FM\17APP1.SGM 17APP1 16812 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 74 / Tuesday, April 17, 2018 / Proposed Rules zone, four removed safety zones, and 3 changes to the sponsor/name, date, and/ or safety zones of certain events, the regulations of 33 CFR 165.801 and the Date other provisions in Table 2 of § 165.801 would remain unchanged.

Kentucky Drag Boat Association/Evansville, IL Drag Boat Races.

The amendments to this rule are necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and people during annual events taking place on or near navigable waters in Sector Upper Mississippi River. Although this proposed rule would be in effect year-round, the specific safety zones listed in Table 2 of 33 CFR 165.801 would only be enforced during a specified period of time coinciding with the happening of the annual events listed. In accordance with the regulations listed in 33 CFR 165.801(a)– (d), entry into these safety zones is prohibited unless authorized by the COTP or a designated representative. The regulatory text of the updated Table 2 of § 165.801 we are proposing appears at the end of this document. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Apr 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 Marquette, IA ..................

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, and duration of the safety zones. These safety zones are limited in size and duration, and are usually positioned away from high vessel traffic zones. Moreover, the Coast Guard would issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the zones, and the rule would allow vessels to seek permission to enter the zones. E:\FR\FM\17APP1.SGM 17APP1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 74 / Tuesday, April 17, 2018 / Proposed Rules 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 proposed rule would 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 zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A above, this proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. Collection of Information This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). amozie on DSK30RV082PROD with PROPOSALS 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Apr 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 proposed 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 would 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 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 establishing safety zones limiting access to certain areas under 33 CFR 165 within the COTP Zone. 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 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 proposed rule. PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 16813 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.

Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On April 4, 2018, Geaux Pyro notified the Coast Guard that it would conduct a fireworks display from 7 p.m. through 7:20 p.m. on July 4, 2018, for a wedding celebration. The fireworks are to be launched from a barge on the Tchefuncte River, at approximate position 30°24′11.63″ N 090°09′17.39″ W, in front of the Madisonville Town Hall. Hazards from firework displays include accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. The Captain of the Port Sector New Orleans (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be used in this display would be a safety concern for anyone within 100 yards of the launch barge.

[Docket Number USCG-2018-0038]
RIN 1625-AA00


Safety Zones; Coast Guard Sector Upper Mississippi River Annual 
and Recurring Safety Zones Update

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes to amend its safety zone regulations 
for annual events in Coast Guard Sector Upper Mississippi River. This 
proposed rule would add one new recurring safety zone, remove four 
safety zones, and amend the sponsor/name, date, and/or safety zones for 
three recurring safety zones already listed in the current table. This 
action is necessary to protect spectators, participants, and vessels 
from the hazards associated with annual marine events. This proposed 
rulemaking would restrict vessel traffic from the safety zones during 
the events unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Upper 
Mississippi River or a designated representative. We invite your 
comments on this proposed rulemaking.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before May 17, 2018.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-
2018-0038 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. 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 proposed 
rule, call or email Lieutenant Commander Sean Peterson, Chief of 
Prevention, U.S. Coast Guard; telephone (314) 269-2568, email

FR Federal Register
NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking
Sec.  Section
U.S.C. United States Code

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    The Captain of the Port Sector Upper Mississippi River (COTP) 
proposes to amend 33 CFR 165.801 to update the table of annual 
fireworks displays and other marine-related events in Coast Guard 
Sector Upper Mississippi River. The current list of annual and 
recurring safety zones in Sector Upper Mississippi River is published 
in Table 2 of 33 CFR 165.801. That most recent table was created 
through the final rule published on June 21, 2017 (82 FR 28235). The 
current table in 33 CFR 165.801 needs to be amended to include new 
safety zones expected to recur annually or biannually, remove safety 
zones no longer recurring, and provide new information on existing 
safety zones.
    The proposed annually recurring safety zones are necessary to 
provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the events. 
Based on the nature of these marine events, large numbers of 
participants and spectators, and event locations, the COTP has 
determined that the events listed in this proposed rule could pose a 
risk to participants or waterways users if the normal vessel traffic 
were to interfere with the events. Possible hazards include risks of 
injury or death from near or actual contact among participant vessels 
and spectators or mariners traversing through the safety zone. In order 
to protect the safety of all waterway users, including event 
participants and spectators, this proposed rule would establish safety 
zones for the time and location of each marine event.
    This purpose of this proposed rulemaking is to ensure the safety of 
vessels on the navigable waters in the safety zones during the 
scheduled events. Vessels would not be permitted to enter the safety 
zone unless authorized by the COTP or a designated representative. The 
Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The COTP proposes to amend its safety zone regulations for annual 
events in Coast Guard Sector Upper Mississippi River listed in Table 2 
of 33 CFR 165.801. This section requires amendment from time to time to 
properly reflect the recurring safety zone regulations in Sector Upper 
Mississippi River. This rule would add one new recurring safety zone, 
remove four no longer recurring safety zones, and amend the sponsor/
name, date, and/or safety zones for three recurring safety zones 
already listed in the current table. Other than this one new safety

[[Page 16812]]

zone, four removed safety zones, and 3 changes to the sponsor/name, 
date, and/or safety zones of certain events, the regulations of 33 CFR 
165.801 and the other provisions in Table 2 of Sec.  165.801 would 
remain unchanged.
    The Coast Guard proposes to revise regulations at 33 CFR 165.801 
Table 2 by adding one new safety zone. The safety zone being added to 
Table 2 is below:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                      Sector Upper

    The Coast Guard also proposes to revise regulations at 33 CFR 
165.801 Table 2 by removing the following four existing safety zones 
that are no longer recurring, with reference by line number to the 
current Table 2 of 33 CFR 165.801. The four existing safety zones being 
removed are below:

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

    The Coast Guard also proposes to revise regulations at 33 CFR 
165.801 Table 2 by amending three existing safety zones listed in the 
current table. The amendments involve changes to marine event sponsor/
name and/or safety zones, with reference by line number to the current 
Table 2 of 33 CFR 165.801. The three safety zones being amended are 
below:
    This proposed rule modifies the following three safety zones from 
the existing Table 2 in Sec.  165.801 as follows:

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

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

    The amendments to this rule are necessary to ensure the safety of 
vessels and people during annual events taking place on or near 
navigable waters in Sector Upper Mississippi River. Although this 
proposed rule would be in effect year-round, the specific safety zones 
listed in Table 2 of 33 CFR 165.801 would only be enforced during a 
specified period of time coinciding with the happening of the annual 
events listed. In accordance with the regulations listed in 33 CFR 
165.801(a)-(d), entry into these safety zones is prohibited unless 
authorized by the COTP or a designated representative. The regulatory 
text of the updated Table 2 of Sec.  165.801 we are proposing appears 
at the end of this document.

IV. 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, and duration of the safety zones. These safety zones are 
limited in size and duration, and are usually positioned away from high 
vessel traffic zones. Moreover, the Coast Guard would issue a Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the zones, and 
the rule would allow vessels to seek permission to enter the zones.

[[Page 16813]]

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 
proposed rule would 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 zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section 
IV.A above, this proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 proposed rule or any policy or action 
of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 would 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 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 establishing safety zones 
limiting access to certain areas under 33 CFR 165 within the COTP Zone. 
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 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 
proposed 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 
each comment applies, and provide a reason for each suggestion or 
recommendation.
    We encourage you to submit comments through the Federal eRulemaking 
Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. If your material cannot be 
submitted using http://www.regulations.gov, contact the person in the 
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this document for alternate 
instructions.
    We accept anonymous comments. All comments received will be posted 
without change to http://www.regulations.gov and will include any 
personal information you have provided. For more about privacy and the 
docket, visit http://www.regulations.gov/privacyNotice.
