United States Code Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 100 [Docket Number USCG–2021–0339] RIN 1625–AA08 Special Local Regulation; Gulf of Mexico; Sarasota, FL Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation on the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, in the vicinity of Lido Beach, Florida, during the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix. Approximately 70 boats and jet skis, traveling at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour are expected to participate. Additionally, it is anticipated that 100 spectator vessels will be present along the race course. The special local regulation is necessary to protect the safety of race participants, participant vessels, spectators, and the general public on certain navigable waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Lido Beach, Florida during the event. The special local regulation will establish an enforcement area where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the high speed boat races, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the regulated area without obtaining permission from the Captain of the Port St. Petersburg or a designated representative. DATES: This rule will be enforced daily from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., on June 25, 2021 through June 27, 2021.

ACTION: License review policy License requirement Jkt 253001 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. This temporary rule references a date change and a change to the regulated area to an annual recurring special local regulation that already exists in 33 CFR 100.703, Table 1 to 100.703, Line 5. For this year, we received the date changes and the coordinate changes from the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix/Powerboat P–1 USA, LLC with insufficient time to publish an NPRM and receive public comment on these changes, as the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix event will occur before the rulemaking process would be completed. Because of the dangers associated with high speed boat races, the regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of event participants, spectators, and vessels transiting the event area. For those reasons, it would be impracticable to publish an NPRM. 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 impracticable PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Federal Register citation * * because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with Sarasota Grand Prix. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034. The Captain of the Port St. Petersburg has determined that potential hazards associated with the race will be a danger to anyone within the regulated area. The purpose of the rule is to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters of the United States during the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a special local regulation that will encompass certain waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Lido Beach, Florida. The special local regulation will be enforced daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on June 25, 2021 through June 27, 2021. The special local regulation will establish an enforcement area where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the high speed boat races, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within without obtaining permission from the COTP St. Petersburg or a designated representative. Persons and vessels may request authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area by contacting the Captain of the Port St. Petersburg (COTP) by telephone at (727) 824–7506, or a designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area is granted by the COTP or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the instructions of the COTP or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will provide notice of the special local regulation by Local Notice to Mariners and/or Broadcast Notice to Mariners. 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. E:\FR\FM\24JNR1.SGM 24JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 119 / Thursday, June 24, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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: (1) The special local regulation will be enforced for eight hours on three days; (2) although persons and vessels may not enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area without authorization from the COTP or a designated representative, they may operate in the surrounding area during the enforcement period; (3) persons and vessels may still enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area if authorized by the COTP or a designated representative; and (4) the Coast Guard will provide advance notification of the special local regulation to the local maritime community by Local Notice to Mariners and/or Broadcast Notice to Mariners. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:01 Jun 23, 2021 Jkt 253001 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. PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 33123 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 regulation issued in conjunction with a regatta or marine parade. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L61of 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.

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 doing so is impracticable since this safety zone must be established by June 24, 2021 and the Coast Guard did not receive notice of the event with sufficient time to undergo notice and comment before that date. Thus, delaying the effective date of this rule to wait for a comment period to run would be contrary to the public interest and impracticable by inhibiting the Coast Guard’s ability to protect spectators and vessels from the hazards associated with a fireworks display with a potential blast zone. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 days after publication in the Federal Register. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be contrary to the rule’s objectives in ensuring that the potential safety hazards associated with the Ford Fireworks display are effectively mitigated, and life and property on the navigable waters in the vicinity are protected. 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 Detroit (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the Ford Fireworks display starting June 24, 2021, will be a safety concern during the loading, transit, and execution of the Ford Fireworks. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone while the work is being completed. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes three safety zones from 8 a.m. on June 24, 2021 through 11:59 p.m. June 28, 2021. In the case of inclement weather on June 28, 2021, all three safety zones will be enforced the subsequent day. The first of the three safety zones is established to encompass all U.S. navigable waters of the Detroit River within a 1,300-foot radius of fireworks loading site at 42°17.418′ N, 083°06.897′ W (WGS 84). This first safety zone will be enforced from 8 a.m. on June 24, 2021 through 8 a.m. on June 28, 2021. The second safety zone is a 1,300-foot radius surrounding each barge while transiting in U.S. waters of the Detroit River from the loading site to the fireworks launch site on Lake St. Clair in the vicinity of the beach at the Lake St. Clair Metro Park. The second safety zone will be enforced from 8 a.m. through 7 p.m. on June 28, 2021. A third safety zone is established to encompass all U.S. navigable waters of Lake St. Clair within a 1,300-foot radius at the fireworks launch site in the vicinity of the beach at Lake St. Clair Metro Park. The third safety zone will be enforced from 7 p.m. through 11:59 p.m. on June 28, 2021. The duration of these safety zones is intended to protect personel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters while fireworks are being prepared, ignited, and after the display in the event of unexploded fireworks. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. E:\FR\FM\24JNR1.SGM 24JNR1

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation on 
the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, in the vicinity of Lido Beach, 
Florida, during the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix. Approximately 70 
boats and jet skis, traveling at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour 
are expected to participate. Additionally, it is anticipated that 100 
spectator vessels will be present along the race course. The special 
local regulation is necessary to protect the safety of race

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. This temporary 
rule references a date change and a change to the regulated area to an 
annual recurring special local regulation that already exists in 33 CFR 
100.703, Table 1 to 100.703, Line 5. For this year, we received the 
date changes and the coordinate changes from the Sarasota Powerboat 
Grand Prix/Powerboat P-1 USA, LLC with insufficient time to publish an 
NPRM and receive public comment on these changes, as the Sarasota 
Powerboat Grand Prix event will occur before the rulemaking process 
would be completed. Because of the dangers associated with high speed 
boat races, the regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of 
event participants, spectators, and vessels transiting the event area. 
For those reasons, it would be impracticable to publish an NPRM.
    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 impracticable because immediate action is needed to 
respond to the potential safety hazards associated with Sarasota Grand 
Prix.

III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 
70034. The Captain of the Port St. Petersburg has determined that 
potential hazards associated with the race will be a danger to anyone 
within the regulated area. The purpose of the rule is to provide for 
the safety of life on navigable waters of the United States during the 
Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    This rule establishes a special local regulation that will 
encompass certain waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Lido Beach, Florida. 
The special local regulation will be enforced daily from 10 a.m. to 7 
p.m. on June 25, 2021 through June 27, 2021. The special local 
regulation will establish an enforcement area where all persons and 
vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the high 
speed boat races, are prohibited from entering, transiting through, 
anchoring in, or remaining within without obtaining permission from the 
COTP St. Petersburg or a designated representative.
    Persons and vessels may request authorization to enter, transit 
through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area by contacting 
the Captain of the Port St. Petersburg (COTP) by telephone at (727) 
824-7506, or a designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. 
If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within 
the regulated area is granted by the COTP or a designated 
representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization 
must comply with the instructions of the COTP or a designated 
representative. The Coast Guard will provide notice of the special 
local regulation by Local Notice to Mariners and/or Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners.

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.

[[Page 33123]]

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: (1) The special 
local regulation will be enforced for eight hours on three days; (2) 
although persons and vessels may not enter, transit through, anchor in, 
or remain within the regulated area without authorization from the COTP 
or a designated representative, they may operate in the surrounding 
area during the enforcement period; (3) persons and vessels may still 
enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area 
if authorized by the COTP or a designated representative; and (4) the 
Coast Guard will provide advance notification of the special local 
regulation to the local maritime community by Local Notice to Mariners 
and/or Broadcast Notice to Mariners.

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
