Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for certain navigable waters of the Cooper River at Patriot’s Point in Charleston, SC.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: 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 Information and Regulatory History On April 10, 2019, the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum notified the Coast Guard that it would be conducting a fireworks display from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on July 4, 2019. The fireworks will be launched from a barge along the bank of the Cooper River at Patriot’s Point in Charleston, SC. Hazards from fireworks displays include accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. In response to their request, on June 4, 2019, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ‘‘Safety Zone; Fourth of July Fireworks Patriots Point, Charleston, SC’’ (84 FR 25723). 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 June 19, 2019, we received no 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 contrary to public interest because we must establish this safety zone by July 4, 2019 to ensure the protection of the general public from the dangers associated with the event. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70041 (previously U.S.C. 1231) The COTP Charleston has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks display will be a safety concern for anyone within 500-yards of PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 the barge from which fireworks will be launched. The purpose of the rule is to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, the general public, vessels and the navigable waters in the safety zone before, during and after the scheduled event. IV. Discussion of the Rule As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM that published on June 4, 2019. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. This rule establishes a safety zone from 7:45 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. on July 4, 2019. The safety zone will cover certain navigable waters within 500 yards of the fireworks barge located at Patriot’s Point on the Cooper River in Charleston, SC. The duration of the zone is intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. fireworks display. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter, transit through, anchor in or remain within the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the safety zone is granted by the COTP or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the instructions of the COTP or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will provide notice of the safety zone by Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, or by on-scene designated representatives. 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 E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1
