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 above. jspears on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES 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 involves a temporary safety zone lasting twelve hours on each of three days that will VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:02 Jul 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 prohibit entry on the Allegheny River from Mile 43.5 to Mile 45.5, during the high speed boat race event. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) in Table Table 3–1 of U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1.

United States Code jspears on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES 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 with respect to this rule because it is impracticable. It is impracticable because the Coast Guard did not receive final details for this event until July 16, 2019 and lacks sufficient time to provide a reasonable comment period and consider those comments before issuing the rule. 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 impractical because the Coast Guard learned of the Homewood Wedding Fireworks Display with insufficient time to allow for a delayed effective date. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). The Captain of the Port San Francisco (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the Homewood Wedding Fireworks Display on August 2, 2019, will be a safety concern for anyone within a 100-foot radius of the fireworks barge during loading and staging and anyone within a 280-foot radius of the fireworks barge starting 30 minutes before the fireworks display is scheduled to commence and ending 30 minutes after the conclusion of the fireworks display. For this reason, a safety zone is needed to protect VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:02 Jul 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters around the fireworks barge during the fireworks display. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone from 7 a.m. until 10:12 p.m. on August 2, 2019 during the loading and staging of the fireworks barge in McKinney Bay in Lake Tahoe, until 30 minutes after completion of the fireworks display. From 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on August 2, 2019, during the loading and staging of the fireworks barge until 30 minutes prior to the start of the fireworks display, the safety zone will encompass the navigable waters around and under the fireworks barge, from surface to bottom, within a circle formed by connecting all points 100 feet out from the fireworks barge. Loading the pyrotechnics onto the fireworks barge is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on August 2, 2019, at the display location in McKinney Bay, where the fireworks barge will remain until the conclusion of the fireworks display. At 9 p.m. on August 2, 2019, 30 minutes prior to the commencement of the 12-minute Homewood Wedding Fireworks Display, the safety zone will increase in size and encompass the navigable waters around and under the fireworks barge, from surface to bottom, within a circle formed by connecting all points 280 feet from the circle center at approximate position 39°05′11.9″ N, 120°09′17.2″ W (NAD 83). The safety zone will terminate at 10:12 p.m. on August 2, 2019. The effect of the safety zone is to restrict navigation in the vicinity of the fireworks loading, staging, and firing site. Except for persons or vessels authorized by the COTP or the COTP’s designated representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the restricted areas. These regulations are needed to keep spectators and vessels away from the immediate vicinity of the fireworks firing site to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and transiting vessels. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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, limited duration, and narrowly tailored geographic area of the safety zone. This safety zone impacts a 280-foot radius area of McKinney Bay in Lake Tahoe for a limited duration of 15 hours and 12 minutes. The vessels desiring to transit through or around the safety zone may do so upon express permission from the COPT or the COTP’s 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 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 temporary safety zone 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 E:\FR\FM\30JYR1.SGM 30JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 146 / Tuesday, July 30, 2019 / Rules and Regulations 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).

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 with 
respect to this rule because it is impracticable. It is impracticable 
because the Coast Guard did not receive final details for this event 
until July 16, 2019 and lacks sufficient time to provide a reasonable 
comment period and consider those comments before issuing the rule.
    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 impractical because the Coast Guard learned of the 
Homewood Wedding Fireworks Display with insufficient time to allow for 
a delayed effective date.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority 46 U.S.C. 
70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). The Captain of the Port San 
Francisco (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with 
the Homewood Wedding Fireworks Display on August 2, 2019, will be a 
safety concern for anyone within a 100-foot radius of the fireworks 
barge during loading and staging and anyone within a 280-foot radius of 
the fireworks barge starting 30 minutes before the fireworks display is 
scheduled to commence and ending 30 minutes after the conclusion of the 
fireworks display. For this reason, a safety zone is needed to protect 
personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters 
around the fireworks barge during the fireworks display.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a safety zone from 7 a.m. until 10:12 p.m. on 
August 2, 2019 during the loading and staging of the fireworks barge in 
McKinney Bay in Lake Tahoe, until 30 minutes after completion of the 
fireworks display. From 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on August 2, 2019, during the 
loading and staging of the fireworks barge until 30 minutes prior to 
the start of the fireworks display, the safety zone will encompass the 
navigable waters around and under the fireworks barge, from surface to 
bottom, within a circle formed by connecting all points 100 feet out 
from the fireworks barge. Loading the pyrotechnics onto the fireworks 
barge is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on August 2, 2019, at the 
display location in McKinney Bay, where the fireworks barge will remain 
until the conclusion of the fireworks display.
    At 9 p.m. on August 2, 2019, 30 minutes prior to the commencement 
of the 12-minute Homewood Wedding Fireworks Display, the safety zone 
will increase in size and encompass the navigable waters around and 
under the fireworks barge, from surface to bottom, within a circle 
formed by connecting all points 280 feet from the circle center at 
approximate position 39[deg]05'11.9'' N, 120[deg]09'17.2'' W (NAD 83). 
The safety zone will terminate at 10:12 p.m. on August 2, 2019.
    The effect of the safety zone is to restrict navigation in the 
vicinity of the fireworks loading, staging, and firing site. Except for 
persons or vessels authorized by the COTP or the COTP's designated 
representative, no person or vessel may enter or remain in the 
restricted areas. These regulations are needed to keep spectators and 
vessels away from the immediate vicinity of the fireworks firing site 
to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and transiting 
vessels.

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, limited 
duration, and narrowly tailored geographic area of the safety zone. 
This safety zone impacts a 280-foot radius area of McKinney Bay in Lake 
Tahoe for a limited duration of 15 hours and 12 minutes. The vessels 
desiring to transit through or around the safety zone may do so upon 
express permission from the COPT or the COTP's 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 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 
temporary safety zone 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

[[Page 36821]]

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

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 U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Policy, 
COMDTINST 5090.1, 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 involves a safety zone of limited size and 
duration. It is categorically excluded from further review under 
paragraph L60(a) in Table 3-1 of Department of Homeland Security 
Directive 023-01. A Record of Environmental Consideration 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.
