Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 38 / Wednesday, February 26, 2020 / Proposed Rules khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS this paragraph (c)(2)(iv), the expenses associated with the food and beverages are not subject to the deduction limitations in paragraph (a) of this section, because over 50 percent of the food and beverages are primarily consumed by camp attendees. Thus, R may deduct 100 percent of the food and beverage expenses. (4) Example 4. Employer S provides food and beverages to its employees without charge at a company cafeteria on its premises. Occasionally, customers or other visitors also eat without charge in the cafeteria. The occasional consumption of food and beverages at the company cafeteria by customers and visitors is less than 50 percent of the total amount of food and beverages consumed at the cafeteria. Therefore, only the costs attributable to the food and beverages provided to the general public are excepted under section 274(e)(7) and this paragraph (c)(2)(iv). (v) Goods or services sold to customers—(A) In general. An expense paid or incurred for food or beverages, to the extent the food or beverages are sold to customers in a bona fide transaction for an adequate and full consideration in money or money’s worth, is not subject to the deduction limitations in paragraph (a) of this section. However, money or money’s worth does not include payment through services provided. Under this paragraph (c)(2)(v), a restaurant or catering business may deduct 100 percent of its costs for food or beverage items, purchased in connection with preparing and providing meals to its paying customers, which are also consumed at the worksite by employees who work in the employer’s restaurant or catering business. In addition, for purposes of this paragraph (c)(2)(v), the term customer includes anyone, including an employee of the taxpayer, who is sold food or beverages in a bona fide transaction for an adequate and full consideration in money or money’s worth. (B) Example. The following example illustrates the application of this paragraph (c)(2)(v). Employer T operates a restaurant. T provides food and beverages to its food service employees before, during, and after their shifts for no consideration. Under section 274(e)(8) and this paragraph (c)(2)(v), the expenses associated with the food and beverages provided to the employees are not subject to the 50 percent deduction limitation in paragraph (a) of this section because the restaurant sells food and beverages to customers in a bona fide transaction for an adequate and full consideration in money or money’s worth. Thus, T may deduct 100 percent of the food and beverage expenses. (d) Applicability date.

AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is proposing to add, delete, and modify the special local regulations for annual recurring marine events and safety zones regulation for firework displays and swim events in Coast Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone. When enforced, these special local regulations and safety zones will restrict vessels from transiting regulated areas during certain annually recurring events. The proposed special local regulations and safety zones are intended to expedite public notification and ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with certain marine events. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before March 27, 2020. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2019–0951 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at https:// www.regulations.gov.

United States Code II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis Swim events, fireworks displays, and marine events are held on an annual recurring basis on the navigable waters within the Coast Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone. The Coast Guard has established special local regulations and safety zones for some of these annual recurring events on a case by case basis to ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from potential hazards. In the past, the Coast Guard has not received public comments or concerns regarding the impact to waterway traffic from regulations associated with these annually recurring events. Events were either added or deleted to the table of annual events based on their likelihood to recur in subsequent years. In addition, minor changes to existing events, such as position, date, or title, were made to ensure the accuracy of event details. The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure accurate notification of relevant events and protect the maritime public during marine events in the Sector Northern New England COTP Zone. The Coast Guard proposes this rulemaking under its authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 and 46 U.S.C. 70041. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The proposed rule would update the terminology and tables of annual recurring events in the existing regulations for the Coast Guard Sector Northern New England COTP Zone. The tables provide the event name, sponsor, and type, as well as approximate times, dates, and locations of the events. The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.120 ‘‘Special Local Regulations; Marine Events Held in the Coast Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone’’ by replacing language referencing ‘‘Patrol Commander’’ to ‘‘Designated Representative’’ and adding language clarifying only event sponsors, designated participants, and official E:\FR\FM\26FEP1.SGM 26FEP1 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 11032 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 38 / Wednesday, February 26, 2020 / Proposed Rules patrol vessels will be allowed to enter regulated areas. Spectators and other vessels not registered as event participants may not enter the safety zones without the permission of the COTP or the Designated Representative. Additionally, the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.120 ‘‘Special Local Regulations; Marine Events Held in the Coast Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone’’ by updating the details of two events, deleting two events, and adding two events to the TABLE 1 to § 100.120. This rule proposes the following updates to the TABLE 1 to § 100.120: (1) 8.1 Eggemoggin Reach Regatta regulated area will be updated to reflect only the event start location; (2) 8.7 Multiple Sclerosis Harborfest Lobster Boat/ Tugboat Races location will be corrected. The events deleted from the TABLE 1 to § 100.120 will be: (1) 8.2 Southport Rowgatta Rowing and Paddling Boat Race and (2) 7.5 Mayor’s Cup Regatta. The two events added to the table are the (1) 8.8 Eastport Pirates Festival Invasion of Lubec Lobster Boat Race and (2) 6.5 Portland’s Tallship Parade of Ships Event. The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 165.171 ‘‘Safety Zones for fireworks displays and swim events held in Coast Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone’’ by adding language clarifying only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol vessels will be allowed to enter regulated areas. Spectators and other vessels not registered as event participants may not enter the safety zones without the permission of the COTP or the Designated Representative. Additionally, the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 165.171 ‘‘Safety Zones for fireworks displays and swim events held in Coast Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone’’ by updating the details of one event and deleting 20 events from the TABLE 1 to § 165.171. This rule proposes the following update to the TABLE 1 to § 165.171: Corrected location for 8.2 Islesboro Crossing Swim. Events proposed for removal are obsolete events which have not been held for the past three years or which the sponsor’s indicate they have no intention to continue, and events that have been determined to ‘‘not present an extra or unusual hazard on the waterway.’’ The events deleted from the TABLE 1 to § 165.171 will be: (1) 6.1 Waterfront Days Fireworks; (2) 6.2 LaKermesse Fireworks; (3) 7.1 Vinalhaven 4th of July Fireworks; (4) 7.3 The Great Race; (5) 7.4 Bangor 4th of July Fireworks; (6) Eastport 4th of July Fireworks; (7) 7.8 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Feb 25, 2020 Jkt 250001 Ellis Short Sand Park Trustee Fireworks; (8) 7.9 Hampton Beach 4th of July Fireworks; (9) 7.12 Main Street Heritage Days 4th of July Fireworks; (10) 7.14 St. Albans Day Fireworks; (11) 7.17 Shelburne Triathlons; (12) 7.18 St. George Days Fireworks; (13) 7.20 Richmond Days Fireworks; (14) 7.24 Bucksport Festival and Fireworks; (15) 7.26 Paul Coulombe Anniversary Fireworks; (16) 8.1 Westerlund’s Landing Party Fireworks; (17) 8.2 York Beach Fire Department Fireworks; (18) 8.5 Paul Columbe Party Fireworks; (19) 9.2 Eastport Pirate Festival Fireworks; (20) 9.4 Eliot Festival Day Fireworks. The regulatory text we are proposing appears at the end of this document. Advanced public notification of specific times, dates, regulated areas, and enforcement periods for each event will be provided through appropriate means, which may include, but are not limited to, the Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, or a Notice of Enforcement published in the Federal Register. If an event does not have a date and time listed in this regulation, then the precise dates and times of the enforcement period for that event will be announced through a Local Notice to Mariners and a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register. IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed 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 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. This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, duration, and time-of-day of each regulated area. We are adding two new special local regulation, updating existing regulations by removing obsolete events which have not been held for the past three years or which the sponsor’s indicate they have PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 no intention to continue, and removing events that have been determined to ‘‘not present an extra or unusual hazard on the waterway.’’ Dates and coordinates have been updated to more accurately reflect the event. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel 16 for any Safety Zone or Special Local Regulation. Additionally, the rule would allow vessels to seek permission to enter the regulated areas. 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 safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A above, this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. 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 would not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). E:\FR\FM\26FEP1.SGM 26FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 38 / Wednesday, February 26, 2020 / Proposed Rules 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. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 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. This proposed rule involves special local regulations for various one day marine events and safety zones for fireworks displays and one day swimming events. Normally VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Feb 25, 2020 Jkt 250001 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. A preliminary Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. 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 message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places, or vessels.

Proposed rule; request for comment. AGENCY: ACTION: The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Forest Service is revising regulations to implement certain changes to the Small Tracts Act, enacted in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill. These statutory changes create a new category of lands eligible for conveyance outside of the National Forest System under the Small Tracts Act for parcels of 40 acres or less that are physically isolated, inaccessible, or have lost National Forest System character. The statutory changes also create a new category of lands eligible for conveyance involving parcels of ten acres or less that are not eligible for conveyance under previous eligibility conditions and are encroached on by a permanent habitable improvement for which there is no evidence that the encroachment was intentional or negligent. These amendments to the Small Tracts Act are expected to provide the Forest Service with more flexibility for resolving property conflicts with private landowners, reduce the time and expense arising from a protracted boundary dispute, and alleviate management burden and expense to the Forest Service. DATES: Comments must be received in writing by April 27, 2020. ADDRESSES: Written comments concerning this notice should be addressed to Greg Smith, USDA, Forest Service, 201 14th Street SW, Washington, DC 20250.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: RIN 0596–AD41 Jkt 250001 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Public Law 97–465, commonly known as the Small Tracts Act (16 U.S.C. 521c– 521i), was enacted in 1983 to help the Forest Service resolve land disputes and boundary mangement problems for parcels that generally were small in scale (less than ten acres) with land values that did not exceed $150,000. Eligible lands for sale, exchange, or interchange included National Forest System lands encumbered by an encroachment like a shed, house, or fence; roads or road rights-of-way in excess of Forest Service transportation needs; and ‘‘mineral survey fractions,’’ small parcels of National Forest System lands interspersed with or adjacent to lands transferred out of Federal ownership under the mining laws. Discussion of Amendments to the Small Tracts Act The Small Tracts Act was amended by Section 8621 of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill (Pub. L. 115–334). The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 changes to the Small Tracts Act are being implemented in two phases. The first phase, implementing statutory revisions that are self-executing, was accomplished by revisions to 36 CFR part 254 by final rule without notice and comment on February 13, 2020 (85 FR 8180). The second phase, implementing changes that may entail agency discretion, would be accomplished by PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 this proposed rule, for which notice and comment are warranted. The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 added two new paragraphs to the Small Tracts Act Section 3 (16 U.S.C. 521e) to resolve by conveyance certain encroachment, trespass, and boundary management problems: Paragraph (4) (16 U.S.C. 521e(4)), adding a limited conveyance authority for parcels of 40 acres or less that are determined by the Secretary to be physically isolated from other Federal lands, to be inaccessible, or to have lost National Forest character; and paragraph (5) (16 U.S.C. 521e(5)), addressing encroachments by permanent habitable improvements on parcels of 10 acres or less. This proposed rule would implement paragraph (4) by adding a new 36 CFR 254.37, and would implement paragraph (5) by adding a new paragraph (b) to 36 CFR 254.32. Rulemaking is required for these specific amendments because Section 6 of the Small Tracts Act (codified at 16 U.S.C. 521(h)) provides that ‘‘[t]he Secretary shall issue regulations to carry out the provisions of this Act, including specification of . . . criteria which shall be used in making the determination as to what constitutes the public interest.’’ The public interest determination in § 254.36 will apply to the new paragraph 254.32(b) and new § 254.37 created by this proposed rule. Rulemaking, and particularly the solicitation of public comments, is further warranted because both amendments introduce new options to the Forest Service that rely on agency discretion for resolving eligible encroachments. The final rule published on February 13, 2020 (85 FR 8180), added a new paragraph (c) to 36 CFR 254.32. As noted above, this proposed rule would revise 36 CFR 254.32 to add a new paragraph (b); it would accordingly redesignate existing paragraph (b) as paragraph (c), which would in turn redesignate paragraph (c) added by the final rule as paragraph (d). The final rule also added 36 CFR 254.38. This proposed rule would revise the citations to other rule provisions in 36 CFR 254.38(a) from 36 CFR 254.32(c) to 36 CFR 254.32(d), consistent with the revisions to § 254.32 that would be made by this proposed rule, and would revise 36 CFR 254.38(b) to add a subparagraph (3).

special local regulations for annual recurring marine events and safety 
zones regulation for firework displays and swim events in Coast Guard 
Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone. When enforced, 
these special local regulations and safety zones will restrict vessels 
from transiting regulated areas during certain annually recurring 
events. The proposed special local regulations and safety zones are 
intended to expedite public notification and ensure the protection of 
the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated 
with certain marine events. We invite your comments on this proposed 
rulemaking.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before March 27, 2020.

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    Swim events, fireworks displays, and marine events are held on an 
annual recurring basis on the navigable waters within the Coast Guard 
Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone. The Coast 
Guard has established special local regulations and safety zones for 
some of these annual recurring events on a case by case basis to ensure 
the protection of the maritime public and event participants from 
potential hazards. In the past, the Coast Guard has not received public 
comments or concerns regarding the impact to waterway traffic from 
regulations associated with these annually recurring events. Events 
were either added or deleted to the table of annual events based on 
their likelihood to recur in subsequent years. In addition, minor 
changes to existing events, such as position, date, or title, were made 
to ensure the accuracy of event details.
    The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure accurate notification 
of relevant events and protect the maritime public during marine events 
in the Sector Northern New England COTP Zone. The Coast Guard proposes 
this rulemaking under its authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 and 46 U.S.C. 
70041.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The proposed rule would update the terminology and tables of annual 
recurring events in the existing regulations for the Coast Guard Sector 
Northern New England COTP Zone. The tables provide the event name, 
sponsor, and type, as well as approximate times, dates, and locations 
of the events.
    The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 100.120 ``Special Local 
Regulations; Marine Events Held in the Coast Guard Sector Northern New 
England Captain of the Port Zone'' by replacing language referencing 
``Patrol Commander'' to ``Designated Representative'' and adding 
language clarifying only event sponsors, designated participants, and 
official

[[Page 11032]]

patrol vessels will be allowed to enter regulated areas. Spectators and 
other vessels not registered as event participants may not enter the 
safety zones without the permission of the COTP or the Designated 
Representative. Additionally, the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 
100.120 ``Special Local Regulations; Marine Events Held in the Coast 
Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone'' by 
updating the details of two events, deleting two events, and adding two 
events to the TABLE 1 to Sec.  100.120. This rule proposes the 
following updates to the TABLE 1 to Sec.  100.120: (1) 8.1 Eggemoggin 
Reach Regatta regulated area will be updated to reflect only the event 
start location; (2) 8.7 Multiple Sclerosis Harborfest Lobster Boat/
Tugboat Races location will be corrected. The events deleted from the 
TABLE 1 to Sec.  100.120 will be: (1) 8.2 Southport Rowgatta Rowing and 
Paddling Boat Race and (2) 7.5 Mayor's Cup Regatta. The two events 
added to the table are the (1) 8.8 Eastport Pirates Festival Invasion 
of Lubec Lobster Boat Race and (2) 6.5 Portland's Tallship Parade of 
Ships Event.
    The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 165.171 ``Safety Zones for 
fireworks displays and swim events held in Coast Guard Sector Northern 
New England Captain of the Port Zone'' by adding language clarifying 
only event sponsors, designated participants, and official patrol 
vessels will be allowed to enter regulated areas. Spectators and other 
vessels not registered as event participants may not enter the safety 
zones without the permission of the COTP or the Designated 
Representative. Additionally, the Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 
165.171 ``Safety Zones for fireworks displays and swim events held in 
Coast Guard Sector Northern New England Captain of the Port Zone'' by 
updating the details of one event and deleting 20 events from the TABLE 
1 to Sec.  165.171. This rule proposes the following update to the 
TABLE 1 to Sec.  165.171: Corrected location for 8.2 Islesboro Crossing 
Swim. Events proposed for removal are obsolete events which have not 
been held for the past three years or which the sponsor's indicate they 
have no intention to continue, and events that have been determined to 
``not present an extra or unusual hazard on the waterway.'' The events 
deleted from the TABLE 1 to Sec.  165.171 will be: (1) 6.1 Waterfront 
Days Fireworks; (2) 6.2 LaKermesse Fireworks; (3) 7.1 Vinalhaven 4th of 
July Fireworks; (4) 7.3 The Great Race; (5) 7.4 Bangor 4th of July 
Fireworks; (6) Eastport 4th of July Fireworks; (7) 7.8 Ellis Short Sand 
Park Trustee Fireworks; (8) 7.9 Hampton Beach 4th of July Fireworks; 
(9) 7.12 Main Street Heritage Days 4th of July Fireworks; (10) 7.14 St. 
Albans Day Fireworks; (11) 7.17 Shelburne Triathlons; (12) 7.18 St. 
George Days Fireworks; (13) 7.20 Richmond Days Fireworks; (14) 7.24 
Bucksport Festival and Fireworks; (15) 7.26 Paul Coulombe Anniversary 
Fireworks; (16) 8.1 Westerlund's Landing Party Fireworks; (17) 8.2 York 
Beach Fire Department Fireworks; (18) 8.5 Paul Columbe Party Fireworks; 
(19) 9.2 Eastport Pirate Festival Fireworks; (20) 9.4 Eliot Festival 
Day Fireworks.
    The regulatory text we are proposing appears at the end of this 
document. Advanced public notification of specific times, dates, 
regulated areas, and enforcement periods for each event will be 
provided through appropriate means, which may include, but are not 
limited to, the Local Notice to Mariners, Broadcast Notice to Mariners, 
or a Notice of Enforcement published in the Federal Register. If an 
event does not have a date and time listed in this regulation, then the 
precise dates and times of the enforcement period for that event will 
be announced through a Local Notice to Mariners and a Notice of 
Enforcement in the Federal Register.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed 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 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.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, duration, and time-of-day of each regulated area. We are 
adding two new special local regulation, updating existing regulations 
by removing obsolete events which have not been held for the past three 
years or which the sponsor's indicate they have no intention to 
continue, and removing events that have been determined to ``not 
present an extra or unusual hazard on the waterway.'' Dates and 
coordinates have been updated to more accurately reflect the event. 
Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners via 
VHF-FM marine channel 16 for any Safety Zone or Special Local 
Regulation. Additionally, the rule would allow vessels to seek 
permission to enter the regulated areas.

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 
safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section 
IV.A above, this proposed rule would not have a significant economic 
impact on any vessel owner or operator.
    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 would not call for a new collection of 
information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-
3520).

[[Page 11033]]

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. This proposed rule involves special 
local regulations for various one day marine events and safety zones 
for fireworks displays and one day swimming events. 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. A preliminary Record of Environmental Consideration supporting 
this determination is available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES. 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 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
