(b) Special local regulations. (1) In accordance with the general regulations in § 100.35 of this part, entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the regulated areas is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Duluth or on-scene representatives. (2) Vessels and persons receiving COTP Duluth or on-scene representative authorization to enter the area of this special local regulation must do so in accordance with the following restrictions: (i) Vessels and persons must transit at a speed not exceed six (6) knots or at no wake speed, whichever is less. Vessels proceeding under sail will not be allowed in this Area unless also propelled by machinery, due to limited maneuvering ability around numerous other spectator craft viewing the Festival of Sail. (ii) Vessels and persons will not be permitted to impede the parade of sail from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on August 11, 2019 once it has commenced, as the tall ships are extremely limited in their ability to maneuver. (3) The Coast Guard will provide notice of the regulated area prior to the event through Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. Notice of the requirements of this rule will also be provided as a courtesy by on-scene representatives, as available. Notice of actual enforcement will be provided by on-scene representatives. (4) The ‘‘on-scene representative’’ of the COTP Duluth is any Coast Guard commissioned, warrant, or petty officer and any Federal, State, or local officer designated by the COTP to act on her behalf. (5) Vessel operators desiring to enter or operate within the regulated area shall contact the COTP Duluth by telephone at (218) 428–9357, or onscene representative via VHF radio on Channel 16, to obtain permission to do so. Vessel operators given permission to enter, operate, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated areas must comply with all instructions given by COTP Duluth or on-scene representatives. (c) Effective date. These regulations are effective from 7 a.m. on August 11, 2019, through 5 p.m. on August 13, 2019. These regulations will be enforced from 7 a.m. on August 11, 2019 through 5 p.m. on August 13, 2019, during the Parade of Sail, and during various periods of time by the on-scene representative throughout the event.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for certain navigable waters of the Manitowoc River and Manitowoc Harbor in Manitowoc, WI during the Balloon Glow Fireworks event. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect spectators, mariners, vessels, and property from potential hazards associated with a fireworks display. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Lake Michigan. DATES: This rule is effective from 8:30 p.m. through 10 p.m. on August 16, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 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 The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 38869 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 the Coast Guard did not receive the final details of this fireworks display in sufficient time to publish an NPRM. Delaying the effective date of this rule to wait for a commend period to run would be both impracticable and contrary to the public interest because it would inhibit the Coast Guard’s ability to protect the public, mariners, vessels, and property from the hazards associated with this event which is scheduled on August 16, 2019. 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 because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with a fireworks display scheduled for August 16, 2019. 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 Lake Michigan has determined that potential hazards associated with a fireworks display on August 16, 2019, will be a safety concern for anyone within a 500-foot radius of a vessel used to launch fireworks near the mouth of the Manitowoc River in Manitowoc, WI at coordinates 44°05′31″ N, 087°39′07″ W. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone during the fireworks display. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone from 8:30 p.m. through 10 p.m. on August 16, 2019 for navigable waters of the Manitowoc River and Manitowoc Harbor of Lake Michigan in Manitowoc, WI within 500 feet of a vessel used to launch fireworks at coordinates 44°05′31″ N, 087°39′07″ W. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters from falling embers and fireworks debris during the fireworks E:\FR\FM\08AUR1.SGM 08AUR1 38870 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 153 / Thursday, August 8, 2019 / Rules and Regulations display. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the COTP or a designated on-scene representative. The COTP or a designated on-scene representative may be contacted via VHF Channel 16. 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. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES 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 and duration of this action. The safety zone created by this rule will be relatively small and is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. This rule will prohibit entry into an area of the Manitowoc River and Manitowoc Harbor of Lake Michigan in Manitowoc, WI that is within 500 feet of a vessel used to launch fireworks at coordinates 44°05′31″ N, 087°39′07″ W during the fireworks display, not to exceed one and one half hour in duration. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan. 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:42 Aug 07, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 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 call or email 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 PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 call or email the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above. 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 establishment of a safety zone lasting not more than one and one half hour that will prohibit entry within 500 feet of a vessel used to launch fireworks. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) in Table 3–1 of U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES once it is completed. G. Protest Activities The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to call or email 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.

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 the Coast Guard did not receive the 
final details of this fireworks display in sufficient time to publish 
an NPRM. Delaying the effective date of this rule to wait for a commend 
period to run would be both impracticable and contrary to the public 
interest because it would inhibit the Coast Guard's ability to protect 
the public, mariners, vessels, and property from the hazards associated 
with this event which is scheduled on August 16, 2019.
    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 because immediate action is needed to 
respond to the potential safety hazards associated with a fireworks 
display scheduled for August 16, 2019.

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 Lake 
Michigan has determined that potential hazards associated with a 
fireworks display on August 16, 2019, will be a safety concern for 
anyone within a 500-foot radius of a vessel used to launch fireworks 
near the mouth of the Manitowoc River in Manitowoc, WI at coordinates 
44[deg]05'31'' N, 087[deg]39'07'' W. This rule is needed to protect 
personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters 
within the safety zone during the fireworks display.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a safety zone from 8:30 p.m. through 10 p.m. 
on August 16, 2019 for navigable waters of the Manitowoc River and 
Manitowoc Harbor of Lake Michigan in Manitowoc, WI within 500 feet of a 
vessel used to launch fireworks at coordinates 44[deg]05'31'' N, 
087[deg]39'07'' W. The duration of the zone is intended to protect 
personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable 
waters from falling embers and fireworks debris during the fireworks

display. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is 
prohibited unless authorized by the COTP or a designated on-scene 
representative. The COTP or a designated on-scene representative may be 
contacted via VHF Channel 16.

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 and 
duration of this action. The safety zone created by this rule will be 
relatively small and is designed to minimize its impact on navigable 
waters. This rule will prohibit entry into an area of the Manitowoc 
River and Manitowoc Harbor of Lake Michigan in Manitowoc, WI that is 
within 500 feet of a vessel used to launch fireworks at coordinates 
44[deg]05'31'' N, 087[deg]39'07'' W during the fireworks display, not 
to exceed one and one half hour in duration. Thus, restrictions on 
vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. 
Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through 
the safety zone when permitted by the Captain of the Port Lake 
Michigan.

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 
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 
call or email 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 call or email the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION 
CONTACT section above.

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 establishment of a safety zone lasting 
not more than one and one half hour that will prohibit entry within 500 
feet of a vessel used to launch fireworks. It is categorically excluded 
from further review under paragraph L60(a) in Table 3-1 of U.S. Coast 
Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures. A Record of 
Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available 
in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES once it is completed.

G. Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. 
Protesters are asked to call or email 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.
