SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port Sector Corpus Christi DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29003 ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because it would be impracticable. This safety zone must be established by June 30, 2018 and we lack sufficient time to provide a reasonable comment period and then consider those comments before issuing this rule. The NPRM process would delay the establishment of the safety zone until after the scheduled date of the fireworks and compromise public safety. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest because immediate action is necessary to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with the fireworks display. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The Captain of the Port Sector Corpus Christi (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks display occurring on June 30, 2018 will be a safety concern for anyone within a 500-foot radius of the fireworks display. This rule is necessary to ensure the safety of life before, during, and after the scheduled firework displays. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a temporary safety zone from 7:30 p.m. through 9:30 p.m. on June 30, 2018. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters within 500 feet of the fireworks launch location at Point Comfort Bayfront Park in the approximate position 28°40′52.93″ N, 096°33′47.723″ W, Point Comfort, TX. The duration of the zone is intended to protect the public from the fireworks display before, during, and after the scheduled fireworks display. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment before, during, and after the scheduled firework displays. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless authorized by the COTP or a designated representative. A designated representative is a commissioned, warrant, or petty officer of the U.S. Coast Guard assigned to units under the operational control of USCG Sector Corpus Christi. Persons or vessels seeking to enter the safety zone must request permission from the COTP or a designated representative on VHF–FM E:\FR\FM\22JNR1.SGM 22JNR1
