[FR Doc. 2019–27097 Filed 12–13–19; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4410–09–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 52 [Docket No. USCG–2019–0929] Board for Correction of Military Records; Technical Amendment Coast Guard, DHS. Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Board for Correction of Military Records of the Coast Guard (BCMR) is updating its mailing address in the Code of Federal Regulations. On April 29, 2019 the BCMR moved from 245 Murray Lane, Washington, DC 20528 to 2707 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20528. This rule only updates the BCMR’s mailing address for submitting an application for correction of a Coast Guard record and does not create or change any substantive requirements. DATES: This final rule is effective on December 16, 2019. ADDRESSES: Documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket are part of docket number USCG–2019–0929, which is available at https://www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with RULES I. Discussion of the Rule On April 29, 2019 the Board for Correction of Military Records of the Coast Guard (BCMR) mailing address changed from 245 Murray Lane, Washington, DC 20528 to 2707 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, Stop 0485, Washington, DC 20528–0485. Through this technical amendment, the BCMR is making a corresponding change to the BCMR’s mailing address in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in 33 CFR 52.21(a). Section 52.21(a) provides the BCMR mailing address for submitting an application for correction of a Coast VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Dec 13, 2019 Jkt 250001 Guard record on DD Form 149 (Application for Correction of Military or Naval Record). The BCMR has already updated the mailing address on the DD Form 149 and the BCMR’s website to reflect the change in address. This rule is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552; 14 U.S.C. 501 and 503; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation Nos. 0160.1 and 0170.1. II. Regulatory History The Coast Guard did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule. Under Title 5 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), Section 553(b)(A), this final rule is exempt from notice and public comment rulemaking requirements because the change involves rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), an agency may waive the notice and comment requirements if it finds, for good cause, that notice and comment is impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. The Coast Guard finds that notice and comment is unnecessary under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) because the mailing address change is an agency procedural correction that will have no substantive effect on the public. For the same reasons, the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d) for making this final rule effective immediately upon publication. III. Regulatory Analyses The Coast Guard developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below are summarized analyses based on these statutes or executive orders. A. Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and 13563 (Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review) 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 (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. Executive Order 13771 (Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs) directs agencies to reduce regulation and control regulatory costs and provides that ‘‘for every one new regulation issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination, and that the PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 cost of planned regulations be prudently managed and controlled through a budgeting process.’’ The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not designated this rule a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, OMB has not reviewed it. Because this rule is not a significant regulatory action, this rule is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. See the OMB Memorandum titled ‘‘Guidance Implementing Executive Order 13771, titled ‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs’’’ (April 5, 2017). This rule involves nonsubstantive changes and internal agency practices and procedures; it will not impose any additional costs on the public. The benefit of the nonsubstantive change that updates a mailing address is increased clarity and accuracy of regulations for the public. B. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, the Coast Guard has considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 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. This rule is not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking. Therefore, it is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612). The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply when notice and comment rulemaking is not required. This rule consists of a technical amendment to a mailing address and does not have any substantive effect on the regulated industry or small businesses. C. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, Public Law 104– 121, the Coast Guard offers to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. 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. D. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520. E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 241 / Monday, December 16, 2019 / Rules and Regulations E. Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132 (Federalism) if it has a substantial direct effect on 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. The Coast Guard has analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13132 and has determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. F. 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. Although this rule will not result in such expenditure, the Coast Guard does discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. G. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630 (Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights). H. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform) to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with RULES I. Protection of Children The Coast Guard has analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045 (Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks). This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. J. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175 (Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments), because it would 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Dec 13, 2019 Jkt 250001 K. Energy Effects The Coast Guard has analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211 (Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use). It is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. L. Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act, codified as a note to 15 U.S.C. 272, directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, the Coast Guard did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

This final rule involves a non-substantive technical amendment that updates a mailing address in existing Coast Guard regulations. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded under paragraphs A3 and L54 in Appendix A, Table 1, of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 1. Paragraphs A3 and L54 pertain to regulations which are editorial or procedural. 33 CFR Part 165 PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 68343 [Docket Number USCG–2019–0904] RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone; Isabel Holmes Bridge, Wilmington, NC Coast Guard, DHS.

AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing two temporary safety zones on the navigable waters of the Cape Fear River at the Isabel Holmes Bridge in Wilmington, North Carolina. These temporary safety zones are intended to restrict vessel traffic on the Cape Fear River from December 15, 2019, through February 15, 2020, while work crews repair the bridge and replace power cables crossing under the river. This rule prohibits vessels or persons from being in the safety zones unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) North Carolina or a designated representative.

Washington, DC 20528 to 2707 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, 
Washington, DC 20528. This rule only updates the BCMR's mailing address 
for submitting an application for correction of a Coast Guard record 
and does not create or change any substantive requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Discussion of the Rule

    On April 29, 2019 the Board for Correction of Military Records of 
the Coast Guard (BCMR) mailing address changed from 245 Murray Lane, 
Washington, DC 20528 to 2707 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, Stop 
0485, Washington, DC 20528-0485. Through this technical amendment, the 
BCMR is making a corresponding change to the BCMR's mailing address in 
the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in 33 CFR 52.21(a). Section 
52.21(a) provides the BCMR mailing address for submitting an 
application for correction of a Coast Guard record on DD Form 149 
(Application for Correction of Military or Naval Record). The BCMR has 
already updated the mailing address on the DD Form 149 and the BCMR's 
website to reflect the change in address.
    This rule is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552; 14 U.S.C. 
501 and 503; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation Nos. 0160.1 
and 0170.1.

II. Regulatory History

    The Coast Guard did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for 
this rule. Under Title 5 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), Section 
553(b)(A), this final rule is exempt from notice and public comment 
rulemaking requirements because the change involves rules of agency 
organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B), an agency may waive the notice and comment requirements if 
it finds, for good cause, that notice and comment is impracticable, 
unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. The Coast Guard finds 
that notice and comment is unnecessary under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) because 
the mailing address change is an agency procedural correction that will 
have no substantive effect on the public. For the same reasons, the 
Coast Guard finds that good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d) for 
making this final rule effective immediately upon publication.

III. Regulatory Analyses

    The Coast Guard developed this rule after considering numerous 
statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below are 
summarized analyses based on these statutes or executive orders.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and 13563 
(Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review) 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 (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. Executive Order 13771 (Reducing Regulation and Controlling 
Regulatory Costs) directs agencies to reduce regulation and control 
regulatory costs and provides that ``for every one new regulation 
issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination, 
and that the cost of planned regulations be prudently managed and 
controlled through a budgeting process.''
    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not designated this 
rule a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive 
Order 12866. Accordingly, OMB has not reviewed it. Because this rule is 
not a significant regulatory action, this rule is exempt from the 
requirements of Executive Order 13771. See the OMB Memorandum titled 
``Guidance Implementing Executive Order 13771, titled `Reducing 
Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs''' (April 5, 2017). This 
rule involves non-substantive changes and internal agency practices and 
procedures; it will not impose any additional costs on the public. The 
benefit of the non-substantive change that updates a mailing address is 
increased clarity and accuracy of regulations for the public.

B. Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, the Coast 
Guard has considered whether this rule would have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 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.
    This rule is not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking. 
Therefore, it is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612). The Regulatory Flexibility Act does 
not apply when notice and comment rulemaking is not required. This rule 
consists of a technical amendment to a mailing address and does not 
have any substantive effect on the regulated industry or small 
businesses.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996, Public Law 104-121, the Coast Guard offers to 
assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can 
better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. 
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.

D. Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520.

[[Page 68343]]

E. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132 
(Federalism) if it has a substantial direct effect on 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. The Coast Guard has analyzed this rule under Executive 
Order 13132 and has determined that it is consistent with the 
fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described 
in Executive Order 13132.

F. 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. Although this rule will not result 
in such expenditure, the Coast Guard does discuss the effects of this 
rule elsewhere in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630 (Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights).

H. Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform) to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

    The Coast Guard has analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045 
(Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks). This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not 
create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175 (Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments), 
because it would 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.

K. Energy Effects

    The Coast Guard has analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211 
(Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use). It is not a ``significant energy 
action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a 
significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of 
energy.

L. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act, codified as a 
note to 15 U.S.C. 272, directs agencies to use voluntary consensus 
standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides 
Congress, through OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards 
would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. 
Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., 
specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test 
methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) 
that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.
    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, the Coast 
Guard did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

M. Environment

    The Coast Guard has analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland 
Security Instruction Manual 023-01-001-01, Rev. 1, 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 concluded that this action is one of a 
category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a 
significant effect on the human environment. A final Record of 
Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available 
in the docket where indicated in the ADDRESSES section of this 
preamble. This final rule involves a non-substantive technical 
amendment that updates a mailing address in existing Coast Guard 
regulations. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded under 
paragraphs A3 and L54 in Appendix A, Table 1, of DHS Instruction Manual 
023-01-001-01, Rev. 1. Paragraphs A3 and L54 pertain to regulations 
which are editorial or procedural.
