Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 186 / Thursday, September 24, 2020 / Proposed Rules Appendix 2—Statement of Commissioner Dan M. Berkovitz The part 190 rulemaking supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (‘‘Supplemental NPRM’’) addresses a potential unintended outcome of the original NPRM identified in a number of comments on the proposal. These comments stated that certain provisions in the original proposed rule related to the bankruptcy of a derivatives clearing organization (‘‘DCO’’) could have significant, unintended and detrimental impacts on various market participants with contracts cleared at the DCO. The Supplemental NPRM presents new, alternative provisions governing DCO bankruptcy that are intended to avoid these impacts. In issuing the Supplemental NPRM, the Commission seeks public comment on these alternative provisions. I support the issuance of this Supplemental NPRM because it will provide all interested persons with an opportunity to comment on the alternative provisions formulated by the Commission. This alternative approach was not set forth in the proposal. Providing the public with notice and opportunity to comment on rules being considered by the Commission is not only a basic legal requirement for agency rulemaking, but it is sound public policy as well. Public input from all interested persons is critical to sound regulation. Under the Administrative Procedure Act, the provisions in a final rule must be reasonably foreseeable and a logical outgrowth of the provisions in the proposal.1 The NPRM must contain more than a passing reference or question about an issue; the proposal must be sufficiently descriptive for members of the public to evaluate and comment on the approach being considered. The Supplemental NPRM meets that standard. I look forward to reviewing all perspectives on these alternative provisions.

Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is proposing a temporary safety zone for all navigable waters of the Ohio River from mile marker (MM) 452.0 to MM 454.0. This SUMMARY: 1 See, e.g., Idaho Farm Bureau Fed’n v. Babbitt, 58 F.3d 1392, 1402–03 (9th Cir. 1995). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:41 Sep 23, 2020 Jkt 250001 action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters near New Richmond, OH, during a demolition project. Entry into, transiting through, or anchoring within this zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before October 26, 2020. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2020–0537 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at https:// 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: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On July 22, 2020, MCM Management Corp notified the Coast Guard that it will be conducting a demolition from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on October 16, 2020, as part of the process to remove the structures of the Beckjord Power Plant. The demolition will occur to stuctures on and close to the waterway. Hazards from demolition include low visibility from the smoke and or noise hazards from the implosion. The Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the demolition would be a safety concern for anyone within the two mile river closure. The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels and the navigable waters from Mile Marker 452.0 to 454.0 before, during, and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard is proposing this rulemaking under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 60115 III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The COTP is proposing to establish a safety zone from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on October 16, 2020. The safety zone would cover all navigable waters from Mile Marker 452.0 to 454.0 on the Ohio River bank to bank. The duration of the zone is intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. demolition. No vessel or person would be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. The regulatory text we are proposing appears at the end of this document. 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 the safety zone. Entry into the regulated area will be prohibited from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on October 16, 2020, from Ohio River MM 452.0 to MM 454.0, unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) or a designated representative. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue written Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the temporary safety zone that is in place. 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 E:\FR\FM\24SEP1.SGM 24SEP1 60116 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 186 / Thursday, September 24, 2020 / Proposed Rules 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 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 call or email 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). 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:41 Sep 23, 2020 Jkt 250001 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 call or email 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 a safety zone lasting 2 hours that would prohibit entry into the regulated area. Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60a of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 1. 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 call or email 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 PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 will consider all comments and material received during the comment period. Your comment can help shape the outcome of this rulemaking.

FR Federal Register
NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking
Sec.  Section
U.S.C. United States Code

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    On July 22, 2020, MCM Management Corp notified the Coast Guard that 
it will be conducting a demolition from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on October 16, 
2020, as part of the process to remove the structures of the Beckjord 
Power Plant. The demolition will occur to stuctures on and close to the 
waterway. Hazards from demolition include low visibility from the smoke 
and or noise hazards from the implosion. The Captain of the Port Sector 
Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated 
with the demolition would be a safety concern for anyone within the two 
mile river closure.
    The purpose of this rulemaking is to ensure the safety of vessels 
and the navigable waters from Mile Marker 452.0 to 454.0 before, 
during, and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard is proposing 
this rulemaking under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 
U.S.C. 1231).

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The COTP is proposing to establish a safety zone from 7 a.m. to 9 
a.m. on October 16, 2020. The safety zone would cover all navigable 
waters from Mile Marker 452.0 to 454.0 on the Ohio River bank to bank. 
The duration of the zone is intended to ensure the safety of vessels 
and these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled 7 
a.m. to 9 a.m. demolition. No vessel or person would be permitted to 
enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a 
designated representative. The regulatory text we are proposing appears 
at the end of this document.

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 the safety zone. Entry into the 
regulated area will be prohibited from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on October 16, 
2020, from Ohio River MM 452.0 to MM 454.0, unless authorized by the 
Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) or a designated 
representative. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue written Local 
Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM marine 
channel 16 about the temporary safety zone that is in place.

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

[[Page 60116]]

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 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 call or email 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).

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 call or email 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 a safety 
zone lasting 2 hours that would prohibit entry into the regulated area. 
Normally such actions are categorically excluded from further review 
under paragraph L60a of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 
023-01-001-01, Rev. 1. 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 call or email 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
