Download as PDF 28216 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 18, 2019 / Rules and Regulations (6) Example 6: NRA as potential current beneficiary. Domestic Trust (DT) has a valid ESBT election in effect. DT owns S corporation stock. The S corporation owns U.S. and foreign assets. The foreign assets produce foreign source income. B, an NRA, is the grantor and the only trust beneficiary and potential current beneficiary of DT. B is not a resident of a country with which the United States has an income tax treaty. Under section 677(a), B is treated as the owner of DT because, under the trust documents, income and corpus may be distributed only to B during B’s lifetime. Paragraph (b)(2)(ii) of this section requires that the S corporation income of the ESBT that otherwise would have been allocated to B under the grantor trust rules must be reallocated from B’s grantor portion to the S portion of DT. In the example in this paragraph (l)(6), the S portion of DT is treated as including the grantor portion of the ESBT, and thus all of DT’s income from the S corporation is taxable to DT. Par. 3. Section 1.1361–1 is amended by: ■ 1. Revising paragraph (m)(1)(ii)(D). ■ 2. Revising paragraph (m)(2)(ii)(E)(2). ■ 3. Adding two sentences to the end of paragraph (m)(4)(i). ■ 4.

United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final 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 ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because doing so would be impracticable. The Coast Guard did not receive the final details of this regatta in time to publish an NPRM. As such, it is impracticable to publish an NPRM because we lack sufficient time to provide a reasonable comment period and then consider those comments before issuing the rule. 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. Waiting for a 30-day effective period to run is impracticable and contrary to the public interest for the reasons discussed in the preceding paragraph. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70041. The Captain of the Port Detroit (COTP) has determined that potential hazard associated with the regatta from 8 a.m. on June 28, 2019 through 7 p.m. on June 29, 2019 will be a safety concern to anyone within waters of the Maumee River, Toledo, OH where the regatta is being held. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone while the regatta occurs. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone from 8 a.m. on June 28, 2019 through 7 p.m. on June 29, 2019. The safety zone will encompass all U.S. navigable waters of the Maumee River, Toledo, OH from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge at river mile 4.30 to a line drawn from a point at 41°38′44.6″ N 83°31′51.8″ W east to a point at 41°38′45.1″ N 83°32′02.2″ W. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:08 Jun 17, 2019 Jkt 247001 permission from the COTP or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will patrol the regatta area under the direction of the Captain of the Port Detroit (COTP), or a designated representative. A designated representative may be a Coast Guard Patrol Commander. Vessels desiring to transit the regulated area may do so only with prior approval of the COTP or a designated representative and when so directed by that officer. Vessels will be operated at a no wake speed to reduce the wake to a minimum, in a manner which will not endanger participants in the event or any other craft and remain vigilant for event participants and safety craft. Additionally, vessels must yield right-of-way for event participants and event safety craft and must follow directions given by the COTP or a designated representative. The rules contained in the above two sentences do not apply to participants in the event or vessels of the patrol operating in the performance of their assigned duties. Commercial vessels will have right-ofway over event participants and event safety craft. The races will stop for oncoming freighter or commercial traffic and will resume after the vessel has completed its passage through the regulated area. The COTP or a designated representative may direct the anchoring, mooring, or movement of any boat or vessel within the regatta area. A succession of sharp, short signals by whistle or horn from vessels patrolling the area under the direction of the COTP or a designated representative shall serve as a signal to stop. Vessels so signaled must stop and comply with the orders of the COTP or a designated representative. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both. The COTP or a designated representative may establish vessel size and speed limitations and operating conditions and may restrict vessel operation within the regatta area to vessels having particular operating characteristics. The COTP or a designated representative may terminate the marine event or the operation of any vessel at any time it is deemed necessary for the protection of life and property. Patrol Commander means a Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or petty officer who has been designated by the COTP to monitor a regatta area, permit entry into the regatta area, give legally enforceable orders to persons or vessels within the regatta area, and take other actions authorized by the COTP. The Patrol Commander will be aboard either a Coast Guard or Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel. The Patrol Commander may be PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 28217 contacted on VHF–FM Marine Channel 16 by the call sign ‘‘Coast Guard Patrol Commander.’’ V. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes and executive orders. 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 size, location, duration, and time-of-year of the regulated area. Vessel traffic will be able to safely transit around this regulated area, which will impact a small designated area of the Maumee River in Toledo, OH for a period of 35 hours. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM Marine Channel 16 about the regulated area and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to enter the regulated area. B. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during 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. Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered the impact of this temporary rule on 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 E:\FR\FM\18JNR1.SGM 18JNR1 28218 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 18, 2019 / Rules and Regulations 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). jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES D. Federalism 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 Order 13132. 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 above. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:08 Jun 17, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 Environmental Planning COMDTINST 5090.1 (series), 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 a special local regulation interval lasting for a period of 35 hours that will prohibit entry within specified waters of the Maumee River, Toledo, OH. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) in Table 3–1 of U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1. 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.

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 ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because doing so would be impracticable. The Coast Guard did not receive the final details of the requested safety zone with sufficient time for a comment period to run before the start of the fireworks display. Thus, delaying this rule to wait for a notice and comment period to run would be impracticable because it would inhibit the Coast Guard’s ability to protect the public from the potential hazards associated with the fireworks display. 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. For the same reasons discussed in the preceding paragraph, a 30 day notice period would be impracticable. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The legal basis for this final rulemaking is found at 46 U.S.C 70034; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. On June 26th 2019 from 9:30 p.m. through 10:30 p.m., Mackinac Island will have a fireworks display at position 45°50′48.44″ N, 084°37′40.06″ W.

PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 28219 This action is only for the temporary safety zone. The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie has determined that potential hazard associated with fireworks from 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on June 26, 2019 will be a safety concern to anyone within a 420-foot radius of the launch site. Such hazards include premature and accidental detonations, falling and burning debris, and collisions among spectator vessels. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the temporary safety zone while the fireworks are being displayed. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a temporary safety zone from 9:30 p.m. through 10:30 p.m. on June 26, 2019. This rule is necessary to protect the safety of spectators and vessels during the aforementioned display. The temporary safety zone will encompass all U.S. waters of Lake Huron within a 420 feet radius from 45°50′48.44″ N, 084°37′40.06″ W. The rule will be enforced to mitigate risks associated with the display. The duration of the zone is intended to protect the safety of life and property in these navigable waters during the scheduled fireworks display. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the temporary safety zone without obtaining permission from the Captain of the Port or a designated representative.

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final 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 ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest.'' Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
with respect to this rule because doing so would be impracticable. The 
Coast Guard did not receive the final details of this regatta in time 
to publish an NPRM. As such, it is impracticable to publish an NPRM 
because we lack sufficient time to provide a reasonable comment period 
and then consider those comments before issuing the rule.
    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. Waiting for a 30-day effective 
period to run is impracticable and contrary to the public interest for 
the reasons discussed in the preceding paragraph.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 
70041. The Captain of the Port Detroit (COTP) has determined that 
potential hazard associated with the regatta from 8 a.m. on June 28, 
2019 through 7 p.m. on June 29, 2019 will be a safety concern to anyone 
within waters of the Maumee River, Toledo, OH where the regatta is 
being held. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the 
marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone while 
the regatta occurs.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a safety zone from 8 a.m. on June 28, 2019 
through 7 p.m. on June 29, 2019. The safety zone will encompass all 
U.S. navigable waters of the Maumee River, Toledo, OH from the Martin 
Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge at river mile 4.30 to a line drawn from 
a point at 41[deg]38'44.6'' N 83[deg]31'51.8'' W east to a point at 
41[deg]38'45.1'' N 83[deg]32'02.2'' W. No vessel or person will be 
permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from 
the COTP or a designated representative.
    The Coast Guard will patrol the regatta area under the direction of 
the Captain of the Port Detroit (COTP), or a designated representative. 
A designated representative may be a Coast Guard Patrol Commander. 
Vessels desiring to transit the regulated area may do so only with 
prior approval of the COTP or a designated representative and when so 
directed by that officer. Vessels will be operated at a no wake speed 
to reduce the wake to a minimum, in a manner which will not endanger 
participants in the event or any other craft and remain vigilant for 
event participants and safety craft. Additionally, vessels must yield 
right-of-way for event participants and event safety craft and must 
follow directions given by the COTP or a designated representative. The 
rules contained in the above two sentences do not apply to participants 
in the event or vessels of the patrol operating in the performance of 
their assigned duties. Commercial vessels will have right-of-way over 
event participants and event safety craft. The races will stop for 
oncoming freighter or commercial traffic and will resume after the 
vessel has completed its passage through the regulated area. The COTP 
or a designated representative may direct the anchoring, mooring, or 
movement of any boat or vessel within the regatta area. A succession of 
sharp, short signals by whistle or horn from vessels patrolling the 
area under the direction of the COTP or a designated representative 
shall serve as a signal to stop. Vessels so signaled must stop and 
comply with the orders of the COTP or a designated representative. 
Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for 
failure to comply, or both. The COTP or a designated representative may 
establish vessel size and speed limitations and operating conditions 
and may restrict vessel operation within the regatta area to vessels 
having particular operating characteristics. The COTP or a designated 
representative may terminate the marine event or the operation of any 
vessel at any time it is deemed necessary for the protection of life 
and property.
    Patrol Commander means a Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or 
petty officer who has been designated by the COTP to monitor a regatta 
area, permit entry into the regatta area, give legally enforceable 
orders to persons or vessels within the regatta area, and take other 
actions authorized by the COTP. The Patrol Commander will be aboard 
either a Coast Guard or Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel. The Patrol 
Commander may be contacted on VHF-FM Marine Channel 16 by the call sign 
``Coast Guard Patrol Commander.''

V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on these statutes and executive orders.

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 size, 
location, duration, and time-of-year of the regulated area. Vessel 
traffic will be able to safely transit around this regulated area, 
which will impact a small designated area of the Maumee River in 
Toledo, OH for a period of 35 hours. Moreover, the Coast Guard will 
issue Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM Marine Channel 16 about 
the regulated area and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to 
enter the regulated area.

B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as 
amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of 
regulations on small entities during 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. 
Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered the impact of this temporary rule on 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

[[Page 28218]]

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

    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 Order 
13132.
    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 above.

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 Environmental Planning COMDTINST 5090.1 
(series), 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 a special local regulation interval 
lasting for a period of 35 hours that will prohibit entry within 
specified waters of the Maumee River, Toledo, OH. It is categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) in Table 3-1 of 
U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1. 
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.
