SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section SLR Special Local Regulation U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History On April 18, 2019, the Coast Guard published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (84 FR 16223) entitled ‘‘Special Local Regulation; Kailua Bay, Ironman World Championship, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.’’ In the NPRM we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this swim event. During the comment period that ended May 18, 2019, we received four comments. This annual event consists of a practice swim and then a race swim held on two consecutive weekends in October. This event is a world famous triathlon with participants coming from around the world to compete. The event occurs within the ocean waters of Kailua Bay, HI. Each swim event consists of 2,500 participants swimming a 2.4 mile (4,224 yard) marked race course located in navigable shallow ocean waters. Because of increased spectator pleasure craft drawn to support and view the Ironman swim event, spectator vessel traffic poses a significant safety hazard due to the limited maneuverability of swim participants and vessels navigating in close proximity to the designated area. 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 comments received and evaluation of those comments, the Coast Guard is unable to publish this final rule in time to meet the 30 day E:\FR\FM\30SER1.SGM 30SER1
