Background Information and Regulatory History On June 26, 2018 the Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) titled USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships; Lake Erie, Cleveland, OH (83 FR 29721). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this swim event. During the comment period that ended July 26, 2018 we received no comments.

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 Buffalo (COTP) has determined that a large-scale swim event on a navigable waterway will pose a significant risk to participants and the boating public. This rule is necessary to protect participants and spectators during the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and The Rule As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM published June 26, 2018. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. This rule establishes a 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 enhance the safety of vessels and swimmers on these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled events over the course of the three days. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. The Captain E:\FR\FM\07AUR1.SGM 07AUR1 38662 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 152 / Tuesday, August 7, 2018 / Rules and Regulations of the Port or his designated on-scene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. 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. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES 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 from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. This regulatory action determination is based on the characteristics of the safety zone. The safety zone created by this rule will be relatively small and is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. Furthermore, the safety zone has been designed to allow vessels to transit around it. In addition, the safety zone is located off a beach where there are normally swimmers. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port. 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 00 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:33 Aug 06, 2018 Jkt 244001 zone 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 PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 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 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 establishment of a safety zone. 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.

AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published a final rule amending its Schedule for Rating Disabilities regulations pertaining to the skin body system in the Federal Register on Friday, July 13, 2018. VA has since determined that certain language added to the final rule was unintended and could be construed to prevent appropriate disability compensation ratings from being assigned to veterans. Therefore, VA is issuing this technical correction to ensure that skin disabilities are rated correctly. SUMMARY: This correction is effective August 13, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On Friday, July 13, 2018, VA published in the Federal Register (83 FR 32592) a final rule amending its Schedule for Rating Disabilities regulations pertaining to the skin body system. In § 4.118, under the General Rating Formula for the Skin for DCs 7806, 7809, 7813–7816, 7820–7822, AND 7824, the 30 percent criteria published in the final rule, contains a phrase ‘‘Characteristic lesions involving more than’’ without a corresponding explanation for the additional phrase ‘‘more than.’’ VA notes that the inclusion of the phrase ‘‘more than’’ in the final rule was clearly a technical error. This document corrects this technical error by removing the phrase ‘‘more than’’ from the 30 percent rating criteria under the General Rating Formula for the Skin. This error does not affect any benefits which were previously paid as the final rule for skin will not become effective until August 13, 2018.

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    On June 26, 2018 the Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking (NPRM) titled USA Triathlon Age Group National 
Championships; Lake Erie, Cleveland, OH (83 FR 29721). There we stated 
why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory 
action related to this swim event. During the comment period that ended 
July 26, 2018 we received no comments.
    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 because doing so would be 
impracticable and contrary to the public interest. Delaying the 
effective date would be contrary to the rule's objectives of ensuring 
safety of life on the navigable waters and protection of persons and 
vessels near the event.

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 Buffalo (COTP) has determined that a 
large-scale swim event on a navigable waterway will pose a significant 
risk to participants and the boating public. This rule is necessary to 
protect participants and spectators during the USA Triathlon Age Group 
National Championships.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and The Rule

    As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM published June 
26, 2018. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from 
the proposed rule in the NPRM.
    This rule establishes a 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 
enhance the safety of vessels and swimmers on these navigable waters 
before, during, and after the scheduled events over the course of the 
three days.
    No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone 
without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated 
representative. The Captain

[[Page 38662]]

of the Port or his designated on-scene representative may be contacted 
via VHF Channel 16.

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 
from the requirements of Executive Order 13771.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the 
characteristics of the safety zone. The safety zone created by this 
rule will be relatively small and is designed to minimize its impact on 
navigable waters. Furthermore, the safety zone has been designed to 
allow vessels to transit around it. In addition, the safety zone is 
located off a beach where there are normally swimmers. Thus, 
restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are 
expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may 
still transit through the safety zone when permitted by the Captain of 
the Port.

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 00 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 zone 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 
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 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 establishment of a safety zone. 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
