ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This final rule removes an obsolete DoD regulation (last updated on December 10, 1991) which provides information related to public requests for Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA) records. DNA is an obsolete predecessor organization of DTRA. As a result, this part should be removed. DATES: This rule is effective on June 24, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Todd A. Cimbura at 571–616–5941. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: It has been determined that publication of this rule for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on the removal of obsolete information. Due to the disestablishment of the DNA and the eventual incorporation of its successor organization into DTRA, 32 CFR part 338 (last updated on December 10, 1991 at 56 FR 64482) is obsolete. Additionally, the public retains the ability to obtain information using established DoD Freedom of Information Act procedures outlined in 32 CFR part 286, ‘‘DoD Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Program,’’ by submitting a request to DTRA’s FOIA Office at http:// www.dtra.mil/Home/Freedom-ofInformation-Act-and-Privacy-Act/. This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, ‘‘Regulatory Planning and Review,’’ therefore E.O. 13771, ‘‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs’’ does not apply. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES SUMMARY: List of Subjects in 32 CFR Part 338 Freedom of information.

Murrow) Bridge, the western shore of Lake Washington, and the east/ west line drawn tangent to Bailey Peninsula and along the shoreline of Mercer Island. The regulated area has been divided into two zones. The zones are separated by a line perpendicular from the I–90 Bridge to the northwest corner of the East log boom and a line extending from the southeast corner of the East log boom to the southeast corner of the hydroplane race course and then to the northerly tip of Ohlers Island in Andrews Bay. The western zone is designated Zone I, the eastern zone, Zone II. (Refer to NOAA Chart 18447). The Coast Guard will maintain a patrol consisting of Coast Guard vessels, assisted by Coast Guard Auxiliary vessels, in Zone II. The Coast Guard patrol of this area is under the direction of the Coast Guard Patrol Commander (the ‘‘Patrol Commander’’). The Patrol Commander is empowered to control the movement of vessels on the race course and in the adjoining waters during the periods this regulation is subject to enforcement. The Patrol Commander may be assisted by other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. Only vessels authorized by the Patrol Commander may be allowed to enter Zone I during the hours this regulation is subject to enforcement. Vessels in the vicinity of Zone I shall maneuver and anchor as directed by the Patrol Commander. During the times in which the regulation is subject to enforcement, the following rules will apply: (1) Swimming, wading, or otherwise entering the water in Zone I by any person is prohibited while hydroplane boats are on the race course.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port Detroit 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 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 this air show 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 and immediate action is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone while the airshow is conducted. 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 inhibit the Coast Guard’s ability to protect participants, mariners and vessels from the hazards associated with this event. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). The Captain of the Port Detroit (COTP) has PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 determined that an aircraft aerial display proximate to a gathering of watercraft poses a significant risk to public safety and property. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone while the airshow is being displayed. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone from 12:30 p.m. on June 21, 2019 until 8 p.m. on June 24, 2019. The safety zone will encompass all U.S. navigable waters of the Detroit River between the following two lines extending from 70 feet off the bank to the US/Canadian demarcation line: The first line is drawn directly across the channel at position 42°18.995′ N, 083° 04.285′ W (NAD 83); the second line, to the east, is drawn directly across the channel at position 42°19.574′ N 083°02.622′ W (NAD 83). No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. 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 size, location, duration, and time-of-year of the safety zone. Vessel traffic will be able to safely transit around this safety zone which will impact a small designated area of the Detroit River for no more than four hours per day from 12:30 p.m. on June 21, 2019 until 8 p.m. June 24, 2019. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue Broadcast Notice to Mariners (BNM) via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the zone and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to enter the zone.
