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. We must establish this safety zone by May 29, 2021 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 the public interest because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with the fireworks display. 28489 IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone on May 29, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., June 4, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., June 19, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., July 4, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., July 17, 2021 at 9 p.m. through 9:30 p.m., July 24, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., July 31, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., August 7, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., August 14, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., August 25, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., and September 4, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. through 8:30 p.m. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters of the Lake of the Ozarks at mile marker 1 approximately 500 feet southwest of the Bagnell Dam. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters before, during, and after a fireworks display. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. A designated representative is a commissioned, warrant, or petty officer of the U.S. Coast Guard assigned to units under the operational control of USCG Sector Upper Mississippi River. The COTP or a designated representative will inform the public of the enforcement date and times for this safety zone, as well as any emergent safety concerns that may delay the enforcement of the zone. 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. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule A. Regulatory Planning and Review 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 Upper Mississippi River (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with a fireworks display on May 29, 2021 will be a safety concern for anyone on the Lake of the Ozarks between Mile Marker (MM) .75 to 1. This rule resulted from a marine event notification stating that there will be a fireworks display to celebrate summertime on the Lake of the Ozarks. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone before, during, and after the fireworks display. 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. 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). This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, and duration of the temporary safety zone. This action involves a fireworks display that impacts a one half mile stretch of the Lake of the Ozarks on May 29, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., June 4, PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\27MYR1.SGM 27MYR1 28490 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 101 / Thursday, May 27, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., June 19, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., July 4, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., July 17, 2021 at 9 p.m. through 9:30 p.m., July 24, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., July 31, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., August 7, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. to 9:45 p.m., August 14, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. to 9:45 p.m., August 25, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. to 9:45 p.m., and September 4, 2021 at 8 p.m. through 8:30 p.m. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the safety zone, mariners may seek permission to enter the zone. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:14 May 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 safety zone lasting thirty minutes that will prohibit entry on the Lake of the Ozarks between MM .75 and MM 1, extending PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 500 feet from the right decending bank. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001– 01, Rev. 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.

The likely combination of recreational vessels, darkness punctuated by bright flashes of light, and fireworks debris falling into the water presents risks of collisions which could result in serious injuries or fatalities. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone during the fireworks display. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone that will be enforced from 9 p.m. until 9:45 p.m. on June 6, 2021. The safety zone will encompass all U.S. navigable waters of the Maumee River within a 250 foot radius of the fireworks launch site located at position 41°35′38″ N 083°35′48.6″ W. All geographic coordinates are North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters during the fireworks display. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, Sector Detroit or his designated representative.

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. We must 
establish this safety zone by May 29, 2021 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 the public interest because immediate 
action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated 
with the fireworks display.

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 Upper 
Mississippi River (COTP) has determined that potential hazards 
associated with a fireworks display on May 29, 2021 will be a safety 
concern for anyone on the Lake of the Ozarks between Mile Marker (MM) 
.75 to 1. This rule resulted from a marine event notification stating 
that there will be a fireworks display to celebrate summertime on the 
Lake of the Ozarks. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, 
and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety 
zone before, during, and after the fireworks display.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a safety zone on May 29, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. 
through 9:15 p.m., June 4, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., June 
19, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., July 4, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. 
through 9:45 p.m., July 17, 2021 at 9 p.m. through 9:30 p.m., July 24, 
2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., July 31, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 
9:45 p.m., August 7, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., August 14, 
2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., August 25, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. 
through 9:45 p.m., and September 4, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. through 8:30 p.m. 
The safety zone will cover all navigable waters of the Lake of the 
Ozarks at mile marker 1 approximately 500 feet southwest of the Bagnell 
Dam. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, 
vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters before, 
during, and after a fireworks display. No vessel or person will be 
permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from 
the COTP or a designated representative. A designated representative is 
a commissioned, warrant, or petty officer of the U.S. Coast Guard 
assigned to units under the operational control of USCG Sector Upper 
Mississippi River. The COTP or a designated representative will inform 
the public of the enforcement date and times for this safety zone, as 
well as any emergent safety concerns that may delay the enforcement of 
the zone.

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. 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).
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, and duration of the temporary safety zone. This action 
involves a fireworks display that impacts a one half mile stretch of 
the Lake of the Ozarks on May 29, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., 
June 4,

2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 9:15 p.m., June 19, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. through 
9:15 p.m., July 4, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., July 17, 2021 
at 9 p.m. through 9:30 p.m., July 24, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 
p.m., July 31, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. through 9:45 p.m., August 7, 2021 at 
9:15 p.m. to 9:45 p.m., August 14, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. to 9:45 p.m., 
August 25, 2021 at 9:15 p.m. to 9:45 p.m., and September 4, 2021 at 8 
p.m. through 8:30 p.m. Moreover, the Coast Guard will issue a Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about the safety zone, 
mariners may seek permission to enter the zone.

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.

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 thirty minutes that will prohibit entry on the Lake 
of the Ozarks between MM .75 and MM 1, extending 500 feet from the 
right decending bank. It is categorically excluded from further review 
under paragraph L60, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023-01-001-01, 
Rev. 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.
