Download as PDF 32768 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 118 / Wednesday, June 23, 2021 / Rules and Regulations § 92.508 by revising paragraph (a)(7(i)(B) to read as follows:’’ II. Background Information and Regulatory History without obtaining permission from the designated representative. Aaron Santa Anna, Associate General Counsel for Legislation and Regulations. 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 we must establish the special local regulation by July 10, 2021, and lack sufficient time to request public comments and respond to those comments before the special local regulation must be established. 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 New Martinsville Vintage Regatta taking place on the Ohio River between mile marker 127.5 and mile marker 128.5 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.

ACTION: Temporary final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation for all navigable waters of the Ohio River between mile markers 127.5 and 128.5. The special local regulation is needed to protect regatta participants, the public, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by the regatta. This special local regulation establishes a Patrol Commander and restricts movement and anchoring of spectator and non-participant vessels during the time of the event. DATES: This rule is effective from 9 a.m. on July 10, 2021, until 6 p.m. on July 11, 2021.

United States Code VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:58 Jun 22, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with New Martinsville Vintage Regatta starting July 10, 2021, will be a safety concern for anyone on the Ohio River from mile marker 127.5 to mile marker 128.5. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the special local regulation for the duration of the regatta. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a special local regulation from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. daily on July 10, 2021, and July 11, 2021. The special local regulation will cover all navigable waters between mile markers 127.5 and 128.5 on the Ohio River. The duration of the regulated area is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters for the duration of the regatta. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the regulated area PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 and location of the special local regulation. This rule involes a special local regulation lasting less than a week and covering a limited area of one mile. In addition, vessel traffic will be able to reach out to the safety boat to coordinate safe passage through the special local regulation which will impact a mile mile stretch on the Ohio River. The Coast Guard will publish a Local Notice to Mariners (LNMs), and issue a Broadcast Notice to Mariners (BNMs) via VHF–FM marine channel 16 about the regulated area. 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 regulated area 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 E:\FR\FM\23JNR1.SGM 23JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 118 / Wednesday, June 23, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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). jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:58 Jun 22, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 special local regulations lasting from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. on July 10, 2021 and 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. July 11, 2021 that will limit access of the Ohio River from mile marker 127.5 to mile marker 128.5. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L[61] of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 1. A Memorandum for the Record supporting this determination is available in the docket. For instructions on locating the docket, see the ADDRESSES section of this preamble. G.

Short-term training projects may be of regional or national scope. Program Authority: 29 U.S.C. 772(a)(1). Applicable Program Regulations: 34 CFR parts 385 and 390. We published a notice of proposed priority (NPP) for this competition in the Federal Register on February 19, 2021 (86 FR 10213). The NPP contained background information and our reasons for proposing the priority. Editorial and technical revisions are explained in the discussion of comments that follow. Public Comment: In response to our invitation in the NPP, 23 parties submitted comments on the proposed priority. We group major issues according to subject. Generally, we do not address technical and other minor changes or suggested changes the law does not authorize us to make. In addition, we do not address general comments that raise concerns not directly related to the proposed priority. Analysis of Comments and Changes: An analysis of the comments and of any changes in the priority since publication of the NPP follows. PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 State VR/CAP Coordination and Communication Comment: Several commenters addressed the priority’s requirement that, in providing training and technical assistance, the grantee considers the challenges that State VR agencies face in implementing WIOA’s expanded VR services provisions. These commenters expressed the concern that the priority’s emphasis on VR agency challenges would have the effect of ‘‘shielding’’ the agency from its statutory responsibility to provide quality and timely VR services in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act. These commenters indicated that CAPs also face similar challenges and argue that any consideration of WIOA implementation challenges should encompass both perspectives. Conversely, some commenters cited several VR agency challenges and limitations—financial and nonfinancial—beyond those referenced in the NPP and about which, these commenters believe, CAPs may not be sufficiently aware. These commenters cited, as examples, issues related to the Rehabilitation Act-Individuals with Disabilities Education Act coordination in the delivery of pre-employment transition services; the Rehabilitation Act’s maintenance of effort requirements; and parameters set by the States’ written policies governing the nature and scope of VR services and the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements (2 CFR part 200), among others. The commenters recommended greater emphasis on improving communication between the CAPs and the State VR agencies to promote mutual understanding about their distinct roles, approaches, and perspectives; more training about the impact of Federal and State statutes, regulations, and policies on the delivery of VR services in the States; and closer coordination between the CAPs and the State VR agencies on both individual cases and statewide initiatives to improve competitive integrated employment outcomes for VR clients and applicants. Additionally, one commenter recommended that the comprehensive needs assessment questionnaires, surveys, or focus group include broader input from VR agencies and the State Rehabilitation Councils (SRCs). Discussion: The Department agrees that the priority’s references to VR agency challenges should not be interpreted as a dispensation from the VR program requirements in the Rehabilitation Act, as amended by WIOA. The Department also agrees that E:\FR\FM\23JNR1.SGM 23JNR1

Special Local Regulation; Ohio River, New Martinsville, WV

AGENCY: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

ACTION: Temporary final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation for 
all navigable waters of the Ohio River between mile markers 127.5 and 
128.5. The special local regulation is needed to protect regatta 
participants, the public, and the marine environment from potential 
hazards created by the regatta. This special local regulation 
establishes a Patrol Commander and restricts movement and anchoring of 
spectator and non-participant vessels during the time of the event.

DATES: This rule is effective from 9 a.m. on July 10, 2021, until 6 
p.m. on July 11, 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 we must establish the special local 
regulation by July 10, 2021, and lack sufficient time to request public 
comments and respond to those comments before the special local 
regulation must be established.
    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 New Martinsville Vintage Regatta taking place on the Ohio 
River between mile marker 127.5 and mile marker 128.5

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 Ohio Valley 
(COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with New 
Martinsville Vintage Regatta starting July 10, 2021, will be a safety 
concern for anyone on the Ohio River from mile marker 127.5 to mile 
marker 128.5. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and 
the marine environment in the navigable waters within the special local 
regulation for the duration of the regatta.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a special local regulation from 9 a.m. 
through 6 p.m. daily on July 10, 2021, and July 11, 2021. The special 
local regulation will cover all navigable waters between mile markers 
127.5 and 128.5 on the Ohio River. The duration of the regulated area 
is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment 
in these navigable waters for the duration of the regatta. No vessel or 
person will be permitted to enter the regulated area without obtaining 
permission from the 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. 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 and 
location of the special local regulation. This rule involes a special 
local regulation lasting less than a week and covering a limited area 
of one mile. In addition, vessel traffic will be able to reach out to 
the safety boat to coordinate safe passage through the special local 
regulation which will impact a mile mile stretch on the Ohio River. The 
Coast Guard will publish a Local Notice to Mariners (LNMs), and issue a 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners (BNMs) via VHF-FM marine channel 16 about 
the regulated area.

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 
regulated area 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

[[Page 32769]]

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 
special local regulations lasting from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. on July 
10, 2021 and 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. July 11, 2021 that will limit access 
of the Ohio River from mile marker 127.5 to mile marker 128.5. It is 
categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L[61] of 
Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023-01-001-01, Rev. 1. A 
Memorandum for the Record 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.
