Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 120 / Friday, June 21, 2019 / Proposed Rules jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with PROPOSALS respectively, of PRS1, a domestic partnership. PRS1 and Individual B, a nonresident alien individual, own 90% and 10%, respectively, of PRS2, a domestic partnership. PRS2 owns 100% of the single class of stock of FC, a foreign corporation. USP, Individual A, and Individual B are unrelated to each other. (B) Analysis—(1) CFC and United States shareholder determination. Under paragraph (d)(2) of this section, the determination of whether PRS1, PRS2, USP, and Individual A (each a United States person) are United States shareholders of FC and whether FC is a controlled foreign corporation is made without regard to paragraph (d)(1) of this section. PRS2 owns 100% of the total combined voting power or value of the FC stock within the meaning of section 958(a). Accordingly, PRS2 is a United States shareholder under section 951(b), and FC is a controlled foreign corporation under section 957(a). Under sections 958(b) and 318(a)(2)(A), PRS1 is treated as owning 90% of the FC stock owned by PRS2. Accordingly, PRS1 is a United States shareholder under section 951(b). Further, under section 958(b)(2), PRS1 is treated as owning 100% of the FC stock for purposes of determining the FC stock treated as owned by USP and Individual A under section 318(a)(2)(A). Therefore, USP is treated as owning 90% of the FC stock under section 958(b) (100% x 100% x 90%), and Individual A is treated as owning 10% of the FC stock under section 958(b) (100% x 100% x 10%). Accordingly, both USP and Individual A are United States shareholders of FC under section 951(b). (2) Application of sections 951 and 951A. Under paragraph (d)(1) of this section, for purposes of sections 951 and 951A, PRS1 and PRS2 are not treated as owning (within the meaning of section 958(a)) the FC stock; instead, PRS1 and PRS2 are treated in the same manner as foreign partnerships for purposes of determining the FC stock owned by USP and Individual A under section 958(a)(2) and paragraph (b) of this section. Therefore, for purposes of determining the amount included in gross income under sections 951 and 951A, USP is treated as owning 81% (100% x 90% x 90%) of the FC stock under section 958(a), and Individual A is treated as owning 9% (100% x 90% x 10%) of the FC stock under section 958(a). Because USP and Individual A are both United States shareholders of FC, USP and Individual A determine their respective inclusions under sections 951 and 951A based on their ownership of FC stock under section 958(a). (4) Applicability date. Paragraphs (d)(1) through (3) of this section apply to taxable years of foreign corporations beginning on or after the date of publication of the Treasury decision adopting these rules as final regulations in the Federal Register, and to taxable years of United States persons in which or with which such taxable years of foreign corporations end.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 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 January 29, 2019, 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 09, 2019, from 5:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on August 10, 2019, and from 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on August 11, 2019. 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 vessel 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 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 protect the safety of the event participants and transiting vessels on E:\FR\FM\21JNP1.SGM 21JNP1 29134 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 120 / Friday, June 21, 2019 / Proposed Rules specified waters of Lake Erie before, during and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The Captain of the Port Buffalo proposes to establish a safety zone from 9:45 a.m. through 1:45 p.m. on August 09, 2019, from 4:45 a.m. through 5:45 p.m. on August 10, 2019, and from 4:45 a.m. through 12:15 p.m. on August 11, 2019. The safety zone would 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 extending NW in a straight line position to 41°29′34″ N, 081°45′02″ W then NE in a straight line to position 41°29′43″ N, 081°44′31″ W, and SE back to shore at position 41°29′28″ N, 081°44′22″ W (NAD 83). The duration of the zone is intended to ensure the safety of vessels, participants, 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 Captain of the Port or a designated representative. jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with PROPOSALS 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, and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. This regulatory action determination is based on the conclusion that this rule is not a significant regulatory action. We anticipate that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy issues. The safety VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Jun 20, 2019 Jkt 247001 zone created by this rule will be relatively small and enforced for a relatively short time. Also, the safety zone is designed to allow vessels to transit around it. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Additionally, vessels may still transit through the safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port or a designated representative. 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). PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 Security Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction 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 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 involves a safety zone lasting 3 days that would prohibit entry within certain waters of Lake Erie, off of Edgewater Park, Cleveland, OH. Normally such actions are categorically excluded from E:\FR\FM\21JNP1.SGM 21JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 120 / Friday, June 21, 2019 / Proposed Rules further review under paragraph L60(a) in Table 3–1 of U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1.

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    On January 29, 2019, 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 09, 2019, from 5:00 a.m. to 5:30 
p.m. on August 10, 2019, and from 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on August 11, 
2019. 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 vessel 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 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 protect the safety of the 
event participants and transiting vessels on

[[Page 29134]]

specified waters of Lake Erie before, during and after the scheduled 
event. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under authority in 46 
U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231).

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The Captain of the Port Buffalo proposes to establish a safety zone 
from 9:45 a.m. through 1:45 p.m. on August 09, 2019, from 4:45 a.m. 
through 5:45 p.m. on August 10, 2019, and from 4:45 a.m. through 12:15 
p.m. on August 11, 2019. The safety zone would 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 
extending NW in a straight line position to 41[deg]29'34'' N, 
081[deg]45'02'' W then NE in a straight line to position 41[deg]29'43'' 
N, 081[deg]44'31'' W, and SE back to shore at position 41[deg]29'28'' 
N, 081[deg]44'22'' W (NAD 83). The duration of the zone is intended to 
ensure the safety of vessels, participants, 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 Captain of the Port or a 
designated representative.

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, and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt from 
the requirements of Executive Order 13771.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the conclusion 
that this rule is not a significant regulatory action. We anticipate 
that it will have minimal impact on the economy, will not interfere 
with other agencies, will not adversely alter the budget of any grant 
or loan recipients, and will not raise any novel legal or policy 
issues. The safety zone created by this rule will be relatively small 
and enforced for a relatively short time. Also, the safety zone is 
designed to allow vessels to transit around it. Thus, restrictions on 
vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. 
Additionally, vessels may still transit through the safety zone when 
permitted by the Captain of the Port or a designated representative.

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 
Security Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction 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 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 involves a safety 
zone lasting 3 days that would prohibit entry within certain waters of 
Lake Erie, off of Edgewater Park, Cleveland, OH. Normally such actions 
are 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 preliminary 
Record 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.
