SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Kiewit Infrastructure South Co., on behalf of the bridge owner, Palm Beach County, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulation that governs the Camino Real (Boca Club) Bridge across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, mile 1048.2, at Boca Raton, FL. The deviation is necessary to facilitate the bridge rehabilitation project. The existing bridge is a double-leaf bascule bridge with a vertical clearance of 10 feet at mean high water in the closed to navigation position and a horizontal clearance of 83 feet between the fender system. The existing bridge operating regulation is set out in 33 CFR 117.261(aa–1). Under this temporary deviation, on April 23, 2018 through SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 18415 October 9, 2018, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, the bridge will operate on single-leaf openings with a 6-hour advanced notice for a full opening. During non-working hours, the bridge will operate per the normal bridge operating schedule. The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway is used by a variety of vessels including U.S. government vessels, small commercial vessels, recreational vessels and tugs and barge traffic. The Coast Guard has carefully considered the restrictions with waterway users in publishing this temporary deviation. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to provide a full opening for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: April 23, 2018. Barry L. Dragon, Director, Bridge Branch, Seventh Coast Guard District.

Table of Abbreviations jstallworth on DSKBBY8HB2PROD with RULES CFR Code of Federal Regulations 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 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. In response, on March 21, 2018, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Safety Zones; Recurring Safety Zones in Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone (83 FR 12307). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to these marine events and fireworks display. During the comment period that ended April 20, 2018, we received one comment. VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:07 Apr 26, 2018 Jkt 244001 III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 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. 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 is 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. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received one comment on our NPRM published March 21, 2018. The comment stated that updating the safety zone regulation improves the overall safety of the fireworks displays and that it is imperative for the size, dates, and locations of the safety zones to be accurate in order to protect lives. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. This rule updates the location, date, and size of eighteen existing safety PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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. 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 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 rule has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt E:\FR\FM\27APR1.SGM 27APR1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 82 / Friday, April 27, 2018 / Rules and Regulations jstallworth on DSKBBY8HB2PROD with RULES 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 received no comments from the Small Business Administration on this rulemaking. 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. 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. Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency’s responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1–888–REG–FAIR (1–888–734–3247). The Coast Guard will not retaliate VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:07 Apr 26, 2018 Jkt 244001 against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. 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 rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order13132. Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does 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 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 rule under Department of Homeland Security Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969(42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have determined 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 rule involves the PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 18417 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. It is 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. 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.

(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.

DATES: [FR Doc. 2018–08840 Filed 4–26–18; 8:45 am] SUMMARY: Event date Background: On July 31, 2017, the Department published in the Federal Register a final rule (82 FR 35445) (2017 Rule) revising 34 CFR parts 75 and 77 to better align the regulations with the definition of ‘‘evidence-based’’ in the ESEA. In that rule, we inadvertently removed a selection factor and maintained an outdated definition. Therefore, the purpose of this document is to amend §§ 75.210(h) and 77.1(c) in order to correct those errors. PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 On or around July 4th. On or around July 4th.

Final Regulations and Reasons: We are reinserting the selection factor under the ‘‘Quality of the Project Evaluation’’ criterion (§ 75.210(h)) focused on the extent to which the methods of evaluation will provide valid and reliable performance data on relevant outcomes. This factor was inadvertently omitted from § 77.210(h), and we are making this revision to add it back in. We believe this factor continues to be an important one to include in the menu of selection criteria and factors available for use in discretionary grant programs. As noted in the 2017 Rule, the final regulations do not change the way the Secretary uses selection criteria and factors. The Secretary will continue to use selection criteria that are consistent with the purpose of the program and permitted under the applicable statutes and regulations. E:\FR\FM\27APR1.SGM 27APR1

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    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.
    In response, on March 21, 2018, the Coast Guard published a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Safety Zones; Recurring Safety 
Zones in Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie Zone (83 FR 12307). 
There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our 
proposed regulatory action related to these marine events and fireworks 
display. During the comment period that ended April 20, 2018, we 
received one comment.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 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.
    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 is 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.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, we received one comment on our NPRM published March 
21, 2018. The comment stated that updating the safety zone regulation 
improves the overall safety of the fireworks displays and that it is 
imperative for the size, dates, and locations of the safety zones to be 
accurate in order to protect lives. There are no changes in the 
regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM.
    This rule updates 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

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. 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 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 rule has not been 
designated a ``significant regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 
12866. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB), and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt

[[Page 18417]]

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 received no comments from the Small Business 
Administration on this rulemaking. 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.
    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.
    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 
employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal 
regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory 
Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory 
Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and 
rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to 
comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR 
(1-888-734-3247). 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.

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 rule under that Order and have 
determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in Executive 
Order13132.
    Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under Executive 
Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments, because it does 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 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 rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.1D, which guide the 
Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 
1969(42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have determined 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 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. It 
is 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.

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.

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.

[[Page 18418]]

    (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 shall 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 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.
