Amend § 292.202 by revising paragraphs (h)(2) and (3) and adding paragraph (h)(4) to read as follows: ■ RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone; Power Plant Demolition; Grand River, Grand Haven, MI Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for all navigable waters within 1400 feet of a demolition site near the eastern bank of the Grand River in Grand Haven, MI. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by the controlled implosion of the J.B. Sims power plant. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan or a designated representative. SUMMARY: This rule is effective from 9:30 a.m. on February 5 through 10:30 a.m. on February 19, 2021. The rule will be enforced from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on both February 5 and February 19, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 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 the Coast Guard not made aware of the intended demolition project until January 12, 2021, and immediate action is needed to mitigate potential safety hazards associated with the demolition process. Delaying the effective date of this rule to wait for a comment period to run would be impracticable and contrary to public interest by inhibiting the Coast Guard’s ability to protect against the known and anticipated hazards. 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. For the same reasons discussed in the preceding paragraph, waiting for a 30-day notice period to elapse would be impracticable because immediate action is needed to mitigate potential safety hazards associated with the controlled implosion of portion of the power plant adjancent to the Grand River. 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 (COTP) Lake Michigan has determined that potential safety hazards associated with the demolition of the J.B. Sims power plant E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM 04FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 22 / Thursday, February 4, 2021 / Rules and Regulations will be a safety concern for anyone on navigable waters within 1400 feet of the demolition site. This work is scheduled to take place on February 5 and February 19, 2021, on the Grand River in Grand Haven, MI. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone while the structures are imploded. and is not anticipated to exceed two 2hour periods in duration. Thus, restrictions on vessel movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the safety zone when permitted by the COTP Lake Michigan. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone from 9:30 a.m. through 10:30 a.m. on February 5 and February 19, 2021. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters of the Grand River in Grand Haven, MI, within 1400 feet of the blast area located on the eastern bank of the river at coordinates 43.0705000° N, 086.2346667°. The date and time of the enforcement period will be announced by the COTP Lake Michigan by Broadcast Notice to Mariners. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters during the implosion of structures near the river. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the COTP or a designated representative. 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 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. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 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 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 characteristics of the safety zone. The safety zone created by this rule will be relatively small and is designed to minimize its impact on navigable waters. This rule will prohibit entry into certain navigable waters of the Grand River in Grand Haven, MI, VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:54 Feb 03, 2021 Jkt 253001 B. Impact on Small Entities C.

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. 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 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 safety zone lasting for a total of 2 hours that will prohibit entry within 1400 feet of a blast area near the eastern bank of the Grand River for the demolition of sections of a power plant. It is categorically excluded from further E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM 04FER1 8142 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 22 / Thursday, February 4, 2021 / Rules and Regulations review under paragraph L60(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 1.

(This is not a toll-free number.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VA is correcting its final rule, ‘‘RIN 2900– AP88; Schedule for Rating Disabilities: Musculoskeletal System and Muscle Injuries’’, that was published on November 30, 2020, in the Federal Register at 85 FR 76453. The error is with the diagnostic code used to evaluate plantar fasciitis in schedule for ratings of the foot under the Schedule of Ratings for the Musculoskeletal System. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 A new diagnostic code for plantar fasciitis was assigned in the final rule under diagnostic code 5285; however, this code was previously used to evaluate ‘‘vertebra, fracture of, residuals’’ and later ‘‘vertebral fracture or dislocation’’ in the General Rating Formula for Diseases and Injuries of the Spine in the Schedule for Rating for the spine until September 26, 2003 when it was moved under diagnostic code 5235, ‘‘vertebral fracture or dislocation.’’ See 68 FR 51454 and 67 FR 56509. Though vertebral fracture or dislocation is now evaluated using diagnostic code 5235, VA’s corporate database still uses historical diagnostic code 5285 to compensate veterans for residuals of fractures of the vertebra who have not yet been converted to the current diagnostic code 5235. In order to avoid any issues with the use of the new diagnostic code for plantar fasciitis under 5285 and the historical diagnostic code 5285 previously used to evaluate residuals of spinal fractures, VA assigns a new diagnostic code for plantar fasciitis under diagnostic code 5269. As such, we are also redesignating the entire entry for plantar fasciitis from diagnostic codes 5285 to 5269, though we are maintaining its location in § 4.71a in the table entitled ‘‘The Foot’’ between diagnostic codes 5284 and 5296. Corrections In FR Doc. 2020–25450 appearing on page 76453 in the Federal Register of Monday, November 30, 2020, the following corrections are made: § 4.71a [Corrected] 1. On page 76460, in the third column, in § 4.71a, the text of amendatory instruction 2.e. ‘‘Adding the diagnostic code 5244 to the table entitled ‘‘The Spine’’ and the diagnostic code 5285 to the table entitled ‘‘The Foot’’’’ is corrected to read ‘‘Adding the diagnostic code 5244 in numerical order to the table entitled ‘‘The Spine’’ and the diagnostic code 5269 in numerical order to the table entitled ‘‘The Foot’’’’. ■ § 4.71a [Corrected] 2. On page 76464, in § 4.71a, the entry for diagnostic code 5269 is added and the entry for diagnostic code 5285 is removed to read as follows: ■ § 4.71a Schedule of ratings— musculoskeletal system. * E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM * * 04FER1 * *

Safety Zone; Power Plant Demolition; Grand River, Grand Haven, MI

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for 
all navigable waters within 1400 feet of a demolition site near the 
eastern bank of the Grand River in Grand Haven, MI. The safety zone is 
needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from 
potential hazards created by the controlled implosion of the J.B. Sims 
power plant. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited 
unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Lake Michigan 
or a designated representative.

DATES: This rule is effective from 9:30 a.m. on February 5 through 
10:30 a.m. on February 19, 2021. The rule will be enforced from 9:30 
a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on both February 5 and February 19, 2021.

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 the Coast Guard not made aware of the 
intended demolition project until January 12, 2021, and immediate 
action is needed to mitigate potential safety hazards associated with 
the demolition process. Delaying the effective date of this rule to 
wait for a comment period to run would be impracticable and contrary to 
public interest by inhibiting the Coast Guard's ability to protect 
against the known and anticipated hazards.
    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. For the same reasons discussed in 
the preceding paragraph, waiting for a 30-day notice period to elapse 
would be impracticable because immediate action is needed to mitigate 
potential safety hazards associated with the controlled implosion of 
portion of the power plant adjancent to the Grand River.

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 (COTP) Lake 
Michigan has determined that potential safety hazards associated with 
the demolition of the J.B. Sims power plant

[[Page 8141]]

will be a safety concern for anyone on navigable waters within 1400 
feet of the demolition site. This work is scheduled to take place on 
February 5 and February 19, 2021, on the Grand River in Grand Haven, 
MI. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine 
environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone while the 
structures are imploded.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a safety zone from 9:30 a.m. through 10:30 
a.m. on February 5 and February 19, 2021. The safety zone will cover 
all navigable waters of the Grand River in Grand Haven, MI, within 1400 
feet of the blast area located on the eastern bank of the river at 
coordinates 43.0705000[deg] N, 086.2346667[deg]. The date and time of 
the enforcement period will be announced by the COTP Lake Michigan by 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners. The duration of the zone is intended to 
protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these 
navigable waters during the implosion of structures near the river. 
Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is 
prohibited unless authorized by the COTP or a designated 
representative.

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 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 
characteristics of the safety zone. The safety zone created by this 
rule will be relatively small and is designed to minimize its impact on 
navigable waters. This rule will prohibit entry into certain navigable 
waters of the Grand River in Grand Haven, MI, and is not anticipated to 
exceed two 2-hour periods in duration. Thus, restrictions on vessel 
movement within that particular area are expected to be minimal. Under 
certain conditions, moreover, vessels may still transit through the 
safety zone when permitted by the COTP Lake Michigan.

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 
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. 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 rule will not result in 
such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere
