SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port 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 October 17, 2018, Pyrotecnico, Inc., of New Castle, PA, notified the Coast Guard that it will be conducting a fireworks display from 11:55 p.m. on December 31, 2018, to 12:30 a.m. on January 1, 2019, sponsored by the City of Annapolis, MD. The fireworks are to be launched from a barge in Spa Creek, in Annapolis, MD. Additional details were received on November 5, 2018. In response, on November 27, 2018, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ‘‘Safety Zone for Fireworks Display; Spa Creek, Annapolis, MD’’ (83 FR 60802). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this fireworks display. During the comment period that ended December 12, 2018, we received seven 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. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest because immediate action is needed to mitigate the potential safety hazards associated with a fireworks display in this location. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1
