SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Sainte Marie (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks and the congestion caused by the parade route in the late July Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade will be a safety concern for event participants and spectators. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the regulated area before, during, and after the scheduled event. I. Table of Abbreviations IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule 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 The Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade Charlevoix, MI event features a parade on the perimeter of Round Lake with a low fireworks show in the middle of the lake. In order to ensure safety in sufficient time of the event the Coast Guard Patrol Commander clears any vessel traffic and any vessels anchored in Round Lake from the fireworks fallout zone and the parade route. Prior to this regulation change, the effective time and date did not allow adequate time for the Patrol Commander to ensure the safety of any anchored vessels in the regulated area. The Coast Guard Patrol Commander needed additional time to contact vessel owners to relocate their vessels out of the affected area. In response, on April 1, 2019, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Special Local Regulations; Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade (84 FR 12178). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this marine event. During the comment period that ended July 1, 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 impracticable and contrary to public interest because timely action is needed to ensure the safety of vessels transiting and anchoring inside the regulated area from the fireworks fallout zone and parade route. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70041; 33 CFR 1.05–1. The Captain of the Sault PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM April 1, 2019. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. This rule change provides additional time for the Patrol Commander to clear vessels from transiting or anchoring within the regulated area for the Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade. The duration of the special local regulation is intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after the late July Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade. 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-day for the regulated area. Vessel traffic will be able to safely transit through the regulated area, which will impact a small designated area within the COTP zone for a short duration of time, with permission from the Patrol Commander. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue Broadcast Notice E:\FR\FM\22JYR1.SGM 22JYR1 35036 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 140 / Monday, July 22, 2019 / Rules and Regulations to Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the zone. B. Impact on Small Entities jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES 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 received no comments from the Small Business Administration on this 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. While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the established area of the special local regulation 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 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:49 Jul 19, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 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 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. 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 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 involved creating a regulated area for several days each year in a small area. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L61 in Table 3– 1 of U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1. A Memorandum for the Record 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. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 100 Harbors, Marine safety, Navigation (water), Reporting and record keeping requirements, Waterways.

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade Charlevoix, MI event 
features a parade on the perimeter of Round Lake with a low fireworks 
show in the middle of the lake. In order to ensure safety in sufficient 
time of the event the Coast Guard Patrol Commander clears any vessel 
traffic and any vessels anchored in Round Lake from the fireworks 
fallout zone and the parade route. Prior to this regulation change, the 
effective time and date did not allow adequate time for the Patrol 
Commander to ensure the safety of any anchored vessels in the regulated 
area. The Coast Guard Patrol Commander needed additional time to 
contact vessel owners to relocate their vessels out of the affected 
area.
    In response, on April 1, 2019, the Coast Guard published a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled Special Local Regulations; 
Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade (84 FR 12178). There we stated 
why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory 
action related to this marine event. During the comment period that 
ended July 1, 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 impracticable and contrary to public interest 
because timely action is needed to ensure the safety of vessels 
transiting and anchoring inside the regulated area from the fireworks 
fallout zone and parade route.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 
70041; 33 CFR 1.05-1. The Captain of the Sault Sainte Marie (COTP) has 
determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks and the 
congestion caused by the parade route in the late July Charlevoix 
Venetian Night Boat Parade will be a safety concern for event 
participants and spectators. The purpose of this rule is to ensure 
safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the regulated area 
before, during, and after the scheduled event.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM April 1, 2019. 
There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the 
proposed rule in the NPRM.
    This rule change provides additional time for the Patrol Commander 
to clear vessels from transiting or anchoring within the regulated area 
for the Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade. The duration of the 
special local regulation is intended to ensure the safety of vessels 
and these navigable waters before, during, and after the late July 
Charlevoix Venetian Night Boat Parade.

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-day for the regulated area. Vessel 
traffic will be able to safely transit through the regulated area, 
which will impact a small designated area within the COTP zone for a 
short duration of time, with permission from the Patrol Commander. 
Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue Broadcast Notice

[[Page 35036]]

to Mariners via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the zone.

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 received no comments from the Small Business 
Administration on this 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.
    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the 
established area of the special local regulation 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 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 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 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.

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 
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 involved creating a regulated area for several 
days each year in a small area. It is categorically excluded from 
further review under paragraph L61 in Table 3-1 of U.S. Coast Guard 
Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1. A Memorandum for 
the Record 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.
