SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 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 Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is amending the regulation for safety zones for annual fireworks displays in the Captain of the Port Zone Columbia River, 33 CFR 165.1315. This rule is removing 10 safety zones for inactive fireworks displays, adding 1 safety zone for a new, recurring fireworks display for which we previously issued a temporary safety zone, and updating the date or location for 3 existing fireworks displays. On September 28, 2018, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled, ‘‘Safety Zone; Annual Fireworks Displays within the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port Zone’’ (83 FR 49028). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to annual fireworks displays. During the comment period that ended October 29, 2018, we received four comments. PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 62259 Sfmt 4700 The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The Captain of the Port Columbia River (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks displays create hazardous conditions for the maritime public because of the large number of vessels near the displays, as well as the noise, falling debris, and explosions that occur during the event. Because firework discharge sites pose a potential hazard to the maritime public, these safety zones are necessary in order to restrict vessel movement and reduce vessel congregation in the proximity of the firework discharge sites. 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 provides the public accurate information regarding safety zones for annual fireworks displays in the Captain of the Port Zone Columbia River. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received four comments on our NPRM published September 28, 2018. The first comment suggested establishing new safety zones to replace the 10 inactive safety zones this rule is removing. There has been no indication from the sponsors of these events that they plan to continue them and our office has not received any additional information to warrant the addition of replacement safety zones. The second and third comments contained no suggested changes or recommendations. The fourth comment supported the creation of this rule. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. The Coast Guard is removing 10 fireworks display safety zones in 33 CFR 165.1315 that are listed in Table 1 below because there has been no indication from the sponsors of these events that they plan to continue them.
