Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for certain navigable waters of Breton Sound, LA. The safety zone encompasses all navigable waters within a 100-yard radius of the LOBO Durango platform riser in Breton Sound Block 49 at 29 27.000 N, 089 17.682 W. The temporary safety zone is necessary to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by emergency repair operations to the damaged structure. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically SUMMARY: health conditions to safely ease restrictions in the future and support U.S. border communities. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:19 Nov 20, 2020 Jkt 253001 authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector New Orleans or an authorized representative.

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 Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because it is impracticable. It is impracticable to publish an NPRM because we must establish this temporary safety zone as soon as possible and lack sufficient time to provide a reasonable comment period and then consider those comments before issuing the rule. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be contrary to public interest because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with the emergency repairs on/near LOBO Durango platform riser. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). The Captain of the Port Sector New Orleans (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with emergency repair operations, consisting of securing and repairing the damaged LOBO Durango structure, will be of a safety concern for anyone within a 100-yard radius of the structure, located at approximately 29 27.000 N, 089 17.682 W, Breton Sound, Block 49. This rule is necessary to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment on the navigable waters within the safety zone while the repairs are being carried out. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone starting November 10, 2020 until approximately December 4, 2020, or until repairs are complete, whichever comes first. The temporary safety zone will encompass all navigable waters within 100-yards radius of the LOBO Durango structure located in Breton Sound, Block 49, at approximately 29 27.000 N, 089 17.682 W. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters while the structure is being repaired. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. Vessels requiring entry into this safety zone must request permission from the COTP or a designated representative. They may be contacted on VHF–FM Channel 16 or 67 or by telephone at (504) 365– 2200. Persons and vessels permitted to enter this safety zone must transit at their slowest safe speed and comply with all lawful directions issued by the COTP or the designated representative. The COTP or a designated representative will inform the public of the enforcement times and date for this safety zone through Broadcast Notices to Mariners (BNMs), Local Notices to Mariners (LNMs), and/or Marine Safety Information Bulletins (MSIBs), as appropriate. V. Regulatory Analyses We developed this 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 E:\FR\FM\23NOR1.SGM 23NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 226 / Monday, November 23, 2020 / Rules and Regulations 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 rule has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this rule 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 and duration of the temporary safety zone. This safety zone will restrict vessel traffic from entering or remaining within a 100-yard radial section of Breton Sound, Block 49, while an emergency repairs to LOBO Durango structure occur. The repairs are expected to take no longer than 30 days. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue a Broadcast Notices to Mariners (BNMs) via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the zone, and the rule allows vessels to seek permission to enter the zone, Local Notices to Mariners (LNMs), and/or Marine Safety Information Bulletins (MSIBs), as appropriate. 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 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 temporary safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section V.A above, this rule will not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. 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 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:19 Nov 20, 2020 Jkt 253001 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 annually 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 Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. Collection of Information This 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 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 rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 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. 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 rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 74607 F. Environment We have analyzed this 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 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 temporary safety zone that prohibits entry within 100-yard radius of the LOBO Durango structure located at approximately 29 27.000 N, 089 17.682 W, Breton Sound, Block 49 for about 30 days. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L[60a] of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 1. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket. For instructions on locating the docket, see the ADDRESSES section of this preamble. 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.

[Docket Number USCG-2020-0684]
RIN 1625-AA00


Safety Zone; Breton Sound, New Orleans, LA

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for 
certain navigable waters of Breton Sound, LA. The safety zone 
encompasses all navigable waters within a 100-yard radius of the LOBO 
Durango platform riser in Breton Sound Block 49 at 29 27.000 N, 089 
17.682 W. The temporary safety zone is necessary to protect personnel, 
vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by 
emergency repair operations to the damaged structure. Entry of vessels 
or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized 
by the Captain of the Port Sector New Orleans or an authorized 
representative.

DATES: This rule is effective without actual notice from November 23, 
2020 through December 4, 2020. For the purposes of enforcement, actual 
notice will be used from November 10, 2020 until November 23, 2020.

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

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice 
and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of 
the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This 
provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and 
opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those 
procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest.'' Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good 
cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
with respect to this rule because it is impracticable. It is 
impracticable to publish an NPRM because we must establish this 
temporary safety zone as soon as possible and lack sufficient time to 
provide a reasonable comment period and then consider those comments 
before issuing the rule.
    Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause 
exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of 
this rule would be contrary to public interest because immediate action 
is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with 
the emergency repairs on/near LOBO Durango platform riser.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 
70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). The Captain of the Port Sector New 
Orleans (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with 
emergency repair operations, consisting of securing and repairing the 
damaged LOBO Durango structure, will be of a safety concern for anyone 
within a 100-yard radius of the structure, located at approximately 29 
27.000 N, 089 17.682 W, Breton Sound, Block 49. This rule is necessary 
to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment on the 
navigable waters within the safety zone while the repairs are being 
carried out.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a safety zone starting November 10, 2020 
until approximately December 4, 2020, or until repairs are complete, 
whichever comes first. The temporary safety zone will encompass all 
navigable waters within 100-yards radius of the LOBO Durango structure 
located in Breton Sound, Block 49, at approximately 29 27.000 N, 089 
17.682 W. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, 
vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters while the 
structure is being repaired. No vessel or person will be permitted to 
enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a 
designated representative. Vessels requiring entry into this safety 
zone must request permission from the COTP or a designated 
representative. They may be contacted on VHF-FM Channel 16 or 67 or by 
telephone at (504) 365-2200. Persons and vessels permitted to enter 
this safety zone must transit at their slowest safe speed and comply 
with all lawful directions issued by the COTP or the designated 
representative. The COTP or a designated representative will inform the 
public of the enforcement times and date for this safety zone through 
Broadcast Notices to Mariners (BNMs), Local Notices to Mariners (LNMs), 
and/or Marine Safety Information Bulletins (MSIBs), as appropriate.

V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this 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

[[Page 74607]]

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 rule has not been designated a 
``significant regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 12866. 
Accordingly, this rule 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 and 
duration of the temporary safety zone. This safety zone will restrict 
vessel traffic from entering or remaining within a 100-yard radial 
section of Breton Sound, Block 49, while an emergency repairs to LOBO 
Durango structure occur. The repairs are expected to take no longer 
than 30 days. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue a Broadcast Notices 
to Mariners (BNMs) via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the zone, and the 
rule allows vessels to seek permission to enter the zone, Local Notices 
to Mariners (LNMs), and/or Marine Safety Information Bulletins (MSIBs), 
as appropriate.

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 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 
temporary safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in 
section V.A above, this rule will not have a significant economic 
impact on any vessel owner or operator.
    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 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.
    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 annually 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 Coast Guard will not retaliate against small 
entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or 
action of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This 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 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 rule does not have tribal implications under Executive 
Order 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.

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 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 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 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 
temporary safety zone that prohibits entry within 100-yard radius of 
the LOBO Durango structure located at approximately 29 27.000 N, 089
