III. Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary interim rule with an abridged opportunity to comment out prior 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 doing so would be impracticable. The final details of the specific dates, vessels names, and safety zone distances concerning the safety zones were not finalized within a sufficient time to allow for notice and a subsequent 30day comment period before work, inspection, surveying and the replacement and the removal of multiple cables. Delaying this rule to allow for a notice and comment period would be impracticable because it would inhibit the Coast Guard’s ability to protect the public from the potential hazards associated with aforementioned operation commencing on June 1, 2021. 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, delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards E:\FR\FM\26MYR1.SGM 26MYR1
