Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 179 / Tuesday, September 15, 2020 / Proposed Rules A. Description of the Reasons for the Proposed Rule To address the Dodd-Frank Act’s changes to the Commission’s rulemaking authority, the Commission proposes to clarify that the Rule applies only to motor vehicle dealers. involving consumer reports may duplicate, satisfy, or potentially conflict with the Rule’s requirements for any covered financial institutions. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY F. Description of Any Significant Alternatives to the Proposed Rule 33 CFR Part 165 B. Succinct Statement of the Objectives, and Legal Basis for, the Proposed Rule The objectives of the proposed Rule are discussed above. The legal basis for the proposed Rule is 15 U.S.C. 1681c(h). The Commission has not proposed any specific small entity exemption or other significant alternatives because the proposed amendment would not impose any new requirements or compliance costs. Nonetheless, the Commission welcomes comment on any significant alternative consistent with the FCRA that would minimize the impact of the proposed Rule change on small entities. C. Description of Small Entities To Which the Proposed Rule Will Apply Determining a precise estimate of the number of small entities 17 is not readily feasible. Financial institutions covered by the Rule include certain motor vehicle dealers. A substantial number of these entities likely qualify as small businesses. The Commission estimates that the proposed amendment will not have a significant impact on small businesses because it imposes no new obligations. D. Projected Reporting, Recordkeeping, and Other Compliance Requirements, Including Classes of Covered Small Entities and Professional Skills Needed To Comply The proposed amendments would impose no new reporting, recordkeeping, or other compliance requirements. The small entities potentially covered by the proposed amendment will include all such entities subject to the Rule. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS E. Identification of Duplicative, Overlapping, or Conflicting Federal Rules The Commission has not identified any other federal statutes, rules, or policies that would duplicate, overlap, or conflict with the proposed amendment. Nonetheless, the Commission requests comment on the extent to which other federal standards 17 The U.S. Small Business Administration Table of Small Business Size Standards Matched to North American Industry Classification System Codes (NAICS) are generally expressed in either millions of dollars or number of employees. A size standard is the largest that a business can be and still qualify as a small business for Federal Government programs. For the most part, size standards are the annual receipts or the average employment of a firm. New car dealers (NAICS code 441100) are classified as small if they have fewer than 200 employees. Used car dealers (NAICS code 441120) are classified as small if their annual receipts are $27 million or less. Recreational vehicle dealers, boat dealers, motorcycle, ATV and all other motor vehicle dealers (NAICS codes 441210, 441222 and 441228) are classified as small if their annual receipts are $35 million or less. The 2019 Table of Small Business Size Standards is available at https://www.sba.gov/document/support--table-sizestandards.

Background Information The Pacific Rum Run race is the 5th race planned as part of the Ocean Cup Over the Horizon World Speed Record Series with a concept sanctioned by Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM), American Power Boat Association (APBA), and Powerboat P1 USA (P1). The race course begins off of Huntington Beach Pier, proceeds to Ship Rock and circumnavigates Catalina Island back to Ship Rock, and returns to the finish at the Huntington Beach Pier. The event will have under ten racing vessels, and several safety vessels that will transit a course of approximately 80 miles at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. The Captain of the Port (COTP), Los Angeles—Long Beach has determined that potential hazards associated with event safety may arise due to the expected high concentration of vessels in the general area along with the high speed race vessels. For these reasons the Coast Guard believes that a safety zone is necessary to ensure the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:25 Sep 14, 2020 Jkt 250001 safety of, and reduce the risk to, the public, and mariners around Catalina Island. IV. Discussion of Proposed Rule Based on the safety risks described above the Coast Guard is proposing to establish a temporary safety zone in the vicinity of the Two Harbors, Catalina Island. This proposed safety zone would encompass all navigable waters from the surface to the sea floor consisting of a line connecting the following coordinates: 33°27′38″ N, 118°30′09″ W, 33°27′51″ N, 118°29′53″ W 33°27′34″ N, 118°28′54″, 33°27′12″ N, 118°29′17″ W. All coordinates displayed are referenced by North American Datum of 1983, World Geodetic System, 1984. During the enforcement period, vessels and persons would be prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining within the designated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or their designated representative. The safety zone would be enforced on the day of the Pacific Rum Run which is scheduled for October 10, 2020. The Coast Guard would publish a notice of enforcement in the Federal Register announcing the exact date and times planned for enforcement of the safety zone. The general boating public would also be notified prior to the enforcement of the safety zone via Broadcast Notice to Mariners. V. 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. This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, and duration of the safety zone. Commercial vessel traffic will be able to safely PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 transit through this safety zone, with coordination by the Captain of the Port or their designated representative. The Coast Guard and Vessel Traffic Service/ Marine Exchange will coordinate and mitigate all inbound and outbound commercial traffic movements through the race course. Recreational traffic will be able to transit around this safety zone, which is near the Two Harbors, Catalina entrance. 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 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 IV.A above, this proposed rule will 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. 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 rely and rates each agency’s responsiveness to small business.

The E:\FR\FM\15SEP1.SGM 15SEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 179 / Tuesday, September 15, 2020 / Proposed Rules 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 E.O. 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 E.O. 13132. Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 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 contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 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 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 proposed rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:25 Sep 14, 2020 Jkt 250001 significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves a safety zone encompassing an area near Ship Rock, Catalina Island for the Ocean Cup Pacific Rum Run. Such actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of the Department of Homeland Security Directive 023–01– 001–01, Rev. 01. An environmental analysis and checklist supporting this determination and Record of Environmental Consideration (REC) are 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 rule. G.

III. Background Information

    The Pacific Rum Run race is the 5th race planned as part of the 
Ocean Cup Over the Horizon World Speed Record Series with a concept 
sanctioned by Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM), American Power 
Boat Association (APBA), and Powerboat P1 USA (P1). The race course 
begins off of Huntington Beach Pier, proceeds to Ship Rock and 
circumnavigates Catalina Island back to Ship Rock, and returns to the 
finish at the Huntington Beach Pier. The event will have under ten 
racing vessels, and several safety vessels that will transit a course 
of approximately 80 miles at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. 
The Captain of the Port (COTP), Los Angeles--Long Beach has determined 
that potential hazards associated with event safety may arise due to 
the expected high concentration of vessels in the general area along 
with the high speed race vessels. For these reasons the Coast Guard 
believes that a safety zone is necessary to ensure the safety of, and 
reduce the risk to, the public, and mariners around Catalina Island.

IV. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    Based on the safety risks described above the Coast Guard is 
proposing to establish a temporary safety zone in the vicinity of the 
Two Harbors, Catalina Island. This proposed safety zone would encompass 
all navigable waters from the surface to the sea floor consisting of a 
line connecting the following coordinates: 33[deg]27'38'' N, 
118[deg]30'09'' W, 33[deg]27'51'' N, 118[deg]29'53'' W 33[deg]27'34'' 
N, 118[deg]28'54'', 33[deg]27'12'' N, 118[deg]29'17'' W. All 
coordinates displayed are referenced by North American Datum of 1983, 
World Geodetic System, 1984.
    During the enforcement period, vessels and persons would be 
prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining within 
the designated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or 
their designated representative. The safety zone would be enforced on 
the day of the Pacific Rum Run which is scheduled for October 10, 2020. 
The Coast Guard would publish a notice of enforcement in the Federal 
Register announcing the exact date and times planned for enforcement of 
the safety zone. The general boating public would also be notified 
prior to the enforcement of the safety zone via Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners.

V. 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.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, and duration of the safety zone. Commercial vessel traffic 
will be able to safely transit through this safety zone, with 
coordination by the Captain of the Port or their designated 
representative. The Coast Guard and Vessel Traffic Service/Marine 
Exchange will coordinate and mitigate all inbound and outbound 
commercial traffic movements through the race course. Recreational 
traffic will be able to transit around this safety zone, which is near 
the Two Harbors, Catalina entrance.

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 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 
IV.A above, this proposed rule will 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.
    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 rely 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

[[Page 57177]]

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 E.O. 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 E.O. 13132.
    Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
E.O. 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 contact 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 proposed 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 proposed rule under Department of Homeland 
Security Management Directive 023-01 and 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 a safety zone encompassing an area near 
Ship Rock, Catalina Island for the Ocean Cup Pacific Rum Run. Such 
actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 
60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of the Department of Homeland Security 
Directive 023-01-001-01, Rev. 01. An environmental analysis and 
checklist supporting this determination and Record of Environmental 
Consideration (REC) are 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 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.
