Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone for certain waters of Lake Erie during the SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:16 Jun 25, 2018 Jkt 244001 USA Triathlon National Championships. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters near Edgewater Park, Cleveland, OH, during the swim events during the multiple triathlons over the course of three days. This proposed rulemaking would prohibit persons and vessels from being in the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Buffalo 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 July 26, 2018. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2018–0427 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http:// www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations 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, Purpose, and Legal Basis On November 29, 2017, USA Triathlon notified the Coast Guard that it will be conducting the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on August 10, 2018, from 5:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on August 11, 2018, and from 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on August 12, 2018. The swim portion of the multiple triathlon events will be held off Edgewater Park in Lake Erie, Cleveland, OH. Hazards from swim events include participants swimming in an area that has a high amount of recreational traffic and interfering with vessels intending to operate in that location, as well as swimming within approaches to public and private marinas. The Captain of the Port Buffalo (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the swim events would be a safety concern for anyone intending to participate in PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 29721 this event or for vessels that operate in their vicinity. The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of the event participants and transiting vessels on specified waters of Lake Erie before, during and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The COTP proposes to establish a temporary safety zone from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on August 10, 2018, from 5:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on August 11, 2018, and from 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on August 12, 2018. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters of Lake Erie, off of Edgewater Park, Cleveland OH, inside an area starting on shore at position 41°29′16″ N, 081°44′49″ W then Northwest to 41°29′34″ N, 081°45′02″ W then Northeast to 41°29′43″ N, 081°44′31″ W, then Southeast back to shore at position 41°29′28″ N, 081°44′22″ (NAD 83). The duration of the zone is intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after the schedule events over the course of the three days. No vessel or person would be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. The regulatory text 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, duration, and time-of-day of the safety zone. Moreover, the Coast Guard would issue E:\FR\FM\26JNP1.SGM 26JNP1 29722 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 123 / Tuesday, June 26, 2018 / Proposed Rules a Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the zone, and the rule would allow 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 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. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PROPOSALS 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:21 Jun 25, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 Management 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 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 involve a safety zone lasting three days that would prohibit entry within all waters of Lake Erie, off of Edgewater Park, Cleveland, OH, inside an area starting on shore at position 41°29′16″ N, 081°44′49″ W then Northwest to 41°29′34″ N, 081°45′02″ W then Northeast to 41°29′43″ N, 081°44′31″ W, then Southeast back to shore at position 41°29′28″ N, 081°44′22″ (NAD 83). 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 PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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.

Updating 40 CFR 52.1675 Control Strategy and Regulations: Sulfur Oxides IV. Proposed Action V. Incorporation by Reference VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposes to approve New York’s State Implementation Plan (SIP) submittal consisting of revisions to Title 6 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (6 NYCRR) Section 200.1, ‘‘Definitions,’’ which adds a definition for waste oil. EPA proposes to approve, with limitations, Subpart 225–1, ‘‘Fuel Composition and Use—Sulfur Limitations,’’ as contributing to attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for particulate matter less than or equal to 2.5 microns in diameter (PM 2.5) and the NAAQS for sulfur dioxide (SO2), and establishing a revised regulatory mechanism for New York’s regional haze SIP. The EPA’s proposed approval of New York’s sulfur-in-fuel regulation into the SIP does not alter the EPA’s prior action on New York’s Regional Haze SIP, which includes emission reductions related to the sulfur-in-fuel requirements of section 19–0325 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL). 77 FR 51915 (Aug. 28, 2012). The EPA is proposing to approve these revisions, requested by New York, as strengthening the effectiveness of New York’s SIP. Pursuant to 40 CFR part 51, the EPA also is proposing to remove a section from 40 CFR 52.1675 which lists sulfur limitations for various facilities in New York. EPA has determined that these limitations have expired and/or refer to sources which have been shut down. That determination was reflected in EPA’s reformatting exercise that ensured that all revisions to the New York State SIPs are accurately reflected in 40 CFR part 52, including 40 CFR 52.1670(d), ‘‘EPA approved State source-specific requirements.’’ 76 FR 41705 (July 15, 2011). In addition, the sulfur-in-fuel rule proposed for approval here requires the use of lower sulfur fuel, with lower sulfur concentrations than the limits listed in 40 CFR 52.1675. The EPA is therefore removing the existing sulfur limitations in 40 CFR 52.1675 as they are superfluous and obsolete. E:\FR\FM\26JNP1.SGM 26JNP1

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

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    On November 29, 2017, USA Triathlon notified the Coast Guard that 
it will be conducting the USA Triathlon Age Group National 
Championships from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on August 10, 2018, from 
5:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on August 11, 2018, and from 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 
p.m. on August 12, 2018. The swim portion of the multiple triathlon 
events will be held off Edgewater Park in Lake Erie, Cleveland, OH. 
Hazards from swim events include participants swimming in an area that 
has a high amount of recreational traffic and interfering with vessels 
intending to operate in that location, as well as swimming within 
approaches to public and private marinas. The Captain of the Port 
Buffalo (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with 
the swim events would be a safety concern for anyone intending to 
participate in this event or for vessels that operate in their 
vicinity.
    The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of the event 
participants and transiting vessels on specified waters of Lake Erie 
before, during and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard proposes 
this rulemaking under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The COTP proposes to establish a temporary safety zone from 10:00 
a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on August 10, 2018, from 5:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on 
August 11, 2018, and from 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on August 12, 2018. 
The safety zone will cover all navigable waters of Lake Erie, off of 
Edgewater Park, Cleveland OH, inside an area starting on shore at 
position 41[deg]29'16'' N, 081[deg]44'49'' W then Northwest to 
41[deg]29'34'' N, 081[deg]45'02'' W then Northeast to 41[deg]29'43'' N, 
081[deg]44'31'' W, then Southeast back to shore at position 
41[deg]29'28'' N, 081[deg]44'22'' (NAD 83). The duration of the zone is 
intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters 
before, during, and after the schedule events over the course of the 
three days. No vessel or person would be permitted to enter the safety 
zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated 
representative. The regulatory text 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, duration, and time-of-day of the safety zone. Moreover, the 
Coast Guard would issue

[[Page 29722]]

a Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the 
zone, and the rule would allow 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 
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
