Table of Abbreviations DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 100 [Docket Number USCG–2020–0038] RIN 1625–AA08 Special Local Regulations; Sector Ohio Valley Annual and Recurring Special Local Regulations, Update Coast Guard, DHS. Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes amending and updating its special local regulations for recurring marine parades, regattas, and other events that take place in the Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley area of responsibility (AOR). Through this notice the current list of recurring special local regulations is updated with revisions, additions, and removals of events that no longer take place in the Sector Ohio Valley AOR. When these special local regulations are enforced, certain restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before March 16, 2020. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2020–0038 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http:// www.regulations.gov. See the ‘‘Public Participation and Request for SUMMARY: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS Date 16:35 Feb 13, 2020 II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis The Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) proposes to update the current list of recurring special local regulations found in Table 1 of 33 CFR 100.801 for events occurring within the Sector Ohio Valley area of responsibility within the Coast Guard’s Eighth District region. This rule updates the list of annually recurring special local regulations under 33 CFR 100.801, Table 1 for annual special local regulations in the COTP zone. The Coast Guard will address all comments through response via the rulemaking process, including additional revisions to this regulatory section. Additionally, these recurring events are provided to the public through local means and planned by the local communities. The current list of annual and recurring special local regulations occurring in Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR is published under 33 CFR part 100.801, Table 1. The most recent list was created May 2, 2019 via 84 FR 18727. The Coast Guard’s authority for establishing a special local regulation is contained at 46 U.S.C. 70041(a). The Event/sponsor 2 days—First or second week of October. 3 days—The weekend of Labor Day. 3 days—One weekend in April ... 1 day—One day in June ............. VerDate Sep<11>2014 CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port, Sector Ohio Valley DHS Department of Homeland Security E.O. Executive order FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking Pub. L. Public Law § Section U.S.C. United States Code 8499 Coast Guard is amending and updating the special local regulations under 33 CFR part 100.801, Table 1 to include the most up to date list of recurring special local regulations for events held on or around navigable waters within Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR. These events include marine parades, boat races, swim events, and other marine related events. The current list under 33 CFR 100.801, Table 1 requires amendment to provide new information on existing special local regulations, add new special local regulations expected to recur annually or biannually, and remove special local regulations that are no longer required. Issuing individual regulations for each new special local regulation, amendment, or removal of an existing special local regulation creates unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This single proposed rulemaking will considerably reduce administrative overhead and provide the public with notice through publication in the Federal Register of recurring special local regulations. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule Part 100 of 33 CFR contains regulations to provide effective control over regattas and marine parades conducted on U.S. navigable waters in order to ensure the safety of life in the regatta or marine parade area. Section 100.801 provides the regulations applicable to events taking place in the Eighth Coast Guard District and also provides a table listing each event and special local regulation. This section requires amendment from time to time to properly reflect the recurring special local regulations. This proposed rule updates § 100.801, Table 1 for Sector Ohio Valley. This proposed rule adds 8 new recurring special local regulation, and amends the dates and or regulated areas for 29 recurring special local regulations already listed. This proposed rule would add 8 new recurring special local regulation in Table 1 of § 100.801 for Sector Ohio Valley, as follows: Ohio Valley location Regulated area Head of the Ohio Rowing Race Pittsburgh, PA ............ Allegheny River, Mile 0.0–3.0 (Pennsylvania). Portsmouth Boat Race/Breakwater Powerboat Association. Big 10 Invitational Regatta ......... Guntersville Lake Hydrofest ....... Portsmouth, OH .........

IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and E.O.s, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 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 NPRM has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM 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. The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this proposed rule to be minimal, therefore a full regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. This proposed rule establishes special local regulations limiting access to certain areas under 33 CFR 100 within Sector Ohio Valley’s AOR. The effect of this proposed rulemaking will not be significant because these special local regulations are limited in scope and duration. Additionally, the public is given advance notification through local forms of notice, the Federal Register, and/or Notices of Enforcement and, thus, will be able to plan operations around the special local regulations accordingly. Broadcast Notices to Mariners and Local Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of these special local regulations. Vessel traffic may request permission from the COTP or a designated representative to enter the restricted area. 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:35 Feb 13, 2020 Jkt 250001 605(b) that this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the regulated area may be small entities, for reasons stated in section IV.A. above, this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on any owner or operator because they are limited in scope and will be in effect for short periods of time. Before the enforcement period, the Coast Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories widely available to waterway users. Deviation from the special local regulations established through this proposed rulemaking may be requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. 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 proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. Collection of Information This proposed 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 proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 8501 Also, this proposed 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. If you believe this proposed 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 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. F. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland Security Directive 023–01, Rev. 1, associated implementing instructions, 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 made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L61 of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 01. of the Instruction because it involves establishment of special local regulations related to marine event permits for marine parades, regattas, and other marine events. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule. 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 E:\FR\FM\14FEP1.SGM 14FEP1 8502 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 31 / Friday, February 14, 2020 / Proposed Rules message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels. V. Public Participation and Request for Comments We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, and will consider all comments and material received during the comment period. Your comment can help shape the outcome of this rulemaking. If you submit a comment, please include the docket number for this rulemaking, indicate the specific section of this document to which each comment applies, and provide a reason for each suggestion or recommendation.

[Docket Number USCG-2020-0038]
RIN 1625-AA08


Special Local Regulations; Sector Ohio Valley Annual and 
Recurring Special Local Regulations, Update

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard proposes amending and updating its special 
local regulations for recurring marine parades, regattas, and other 
events that take place in the Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley area of 
responsibility (AOR). Through this notice the current list of recurring 
special local regulations is updated with revisions, additions, and 
removals of events that no longer take place in the Sector Ohio Valley 
AOR. When these special local regulations are enforced, certain 
restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas. We invite 
your comments on this proposed rulemaking.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before March 16, 2020.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-
2020-0038 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. See the ``Public Participation and Request for 
Comments'' portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for further 
instructions on submitting comments.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this proposed 
rule, call or email Petty Officer Riley Jackson, Sector Ohio Valley, 
U.S. Coast Guard; telephone (502) 779-5347, email [email protected].

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    The Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) proposes to 
update the current list of recurring special local regulations found in 
Table 1 of 33 CFR 100.801 for events occurring within the Sector Ohio 
Valley area of responsibility within the Coast Guard's Eighth District 
region.
    This rule updates the list of annually recurring special local 
regulations under 33 CFR 100.801, Table 1 for annual special local 
regulations in the COTP zone. The Coast Guard will address all comments 
through response via the rulemaking process, including additional 
revisions to this regulatory section. Additionally, these recurring 
events are provided to the public through local means and planned by 
the local communities.
    The current list of annual and recurring special local regulations 
occurring in Sector Ohio Valley's AOR is published under 33 CFR part 
100.801, Table 1. The most recent list was created May 2, 2019 via 84 
FR 18727.
    The Coast Guard's authority for establishing a special local 
regulation is contained at 46 U.S.C. 70041(a). The Coast Guard is 
amending and updating the special local regulations under 33 CFR part 
100.801, Table 1 to include the most up to date list of recurring 
special local regulations for events held on or around navigable waters 
within Sector Ohio Valley's AOR. These events include marine parades, 
boat races, swim events, and other marine related events. The current 
list under 33 CFR 100.801, Table 1 requires amendment to provide new 
information on existing special local regulations, add new special 
local regulations expected to recur annually or biannually, and remove 
special local regulations that are no longer required. Issuing 
individual regulations for each new special local regulation, 
amendment, or removal of an existing special local regulation creates 
unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This single proposed 
rulemaking will considerably reduce administrative overhead and provide 
the public with notice through publication in the Federal Register of 
recurring special local regulations.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    Part 100 of 33 CFR contains regulations to provide effective 
control over regattas and marine parades conducted on U.S. navigable 
waters in order to ensure the safety of life in the regatta or marine 
parade area. Section 100.801 provides the regulations applicable to 
events taking place in the Eighth Coast Guard District and also 
provides a table listing each event and special local regulation. This 
section requires amendment from time to time to properly reflect the 
recurring special local regulations. This proposed rule updates Sec.  
100.801, Table 1 for Sector Ohio Valley.
    This proposed rule adds 8 new recurring special local regulation, 
and amends the dates and or regulated areas for 29 recurring special 
local regulations already listed.
    This proposed rule would add 8 new recurring special local 
regulation in Table 1 of Sec.  100.801 for Sector Ohio Valley, as 
follows:

                                      Regatta.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The effect of this proposed rule would be to restrict general 
navigation during these events. Vessels intending to transit the 
designated waterway through the special local regulations will only be 
allowed to transit the area when the

[[Page 8501]]

COTP Ohio Valley, or designated representative, has deemed it safe to 
do so or at the completion of the event.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize 
our analyses based on a number of these statutes and E.O.s, 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 NPRM has not been 
designated a ``significant regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 
12866. Accordingly, the NPRM 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.
    The Coast Guard expects the economic impact of this proposed rule 
to be minimal, therefore a full regulatory evaluation is unnecessary. 
This proposed rule establishes special local regulations limiting 
access to certain areas under 33 CFR 100 within Sector Ohio Valley's 
AOR. The effect of this proposed rulemaking will not be significant 
because these special local regulations are limited in scope and 
duration. Additionally, the public is given advance notification 
through local forms of notice, the Federal Register, and/or Notices of 
Enforcement and, thus, will be able to plan operations around the 
special local regulations accordingly. Broadcast Notices to Mariners 
and Local Notices to Mariners will also inform the community of these 
special local regulations. Vessel traffic may request permission from 
the COTP or a designated representative to enter the restricted area.

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 
proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the 
regulated area may be small entities, for reasons stated in section 
IV.A. above, this proposed rule would not have a significant economic 
impact on any owner or operator because they are limited in scope and 
will be in effect for short periods of time. Before the enforcement 
period, the Coast Guard COTP will issue maritime advisories widely 
available to waterway users. Deviation from the special local 
regulations established through this proposed rulemaking may be 
requested from the appropriate COTP and requests will be considered on 
a case-by-case basis.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this rule would have 
a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see 
ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what 
degree this rule would economically affect it.
    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 proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that 
question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action 
of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed 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 proposed 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 proposed 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. If 
you believe this proposed 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 proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

F. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland 
Security Directive 023-01, Rev. 1, associated implementing 
instructions, 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 made 
a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of 
actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment. Normally such actions are 
categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L61 of 
Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023-01-001-01, Rev. 01. 
of the Instruction because it involves establishment of special local 
regulations related to marine event permits for marine parades, 
regattas, and other marine events. We seek any comments or information 
that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact 
from this proposed rule.

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

[[Page 8502]]

message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of 
people, places or vessels.

V. Public Participation and Request for Comments
