Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing temporary special local regulations for certain navigable waters of the Choptank River.

United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard published an NPRM on March 18, 2019 (84 FR 9724), proposing to establish a special local regulation for the Thunder on the Choptank, on July 27, 2019, and July 28, 2019. The Coast Guard received two comments. The Coast Guard published an SNPRM on May 16, 2019 (84 FR 22079), to amend the proposed special local regulation to increase the size of the regulated area and make minor corrections to the designated spectator area coordinates for the Thunder on the Choptank, on July 27, 2019, and July 28, 2019, and reopen the comment period to account for these changes. The comment period closed June 17, 2019. The Coast Guard received no additional comments during the second request for 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. Due to the date of the event, it would be impracticable to make the regulation effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule is impracticable and contrary to public interest because it would delay the safety measures necessary to respond to potential safety hazards associated with this marine event. Immediate action is needed to protect participants, spectators, and other persons and vessels during the high-speed race event on these navigable waters. 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 Maryland-National Capital Region (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with these power boat races will be a safety concern for anyone intending to operate in or near the race area. The purpose of this rule is to protect event participants, spectators, and transiting vessels on specified waters of the Choptank River before, during, and after the scheduled event. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received two comments to the docket responding to our NPRM published March 18, 2019. Both comments were in support of the Coast Guard’s rulemaking. However, one commenter questioned why the regulation was needed, and wondered if instead waterway users could be E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1
