Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 121 / Monday, June 28, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES F. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01, Rev. 1, associated implementing instructions, and Environmental Planning Policy COMDTINST 5090.1 (series) which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321– 4370f). The Coast Guard has 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 promulgates the operating regulations or procedures for drawbridges and is categorically excluded from further review, under paragraph L49, of Chapter 3, Table 3–1 of the U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementation Procedures.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for certain waters of the Upper Potomac River. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment on these navigable waters at Washington, DC, on July 4, 2021, (with alternate date of July 5, 2021) from potential hazards during a fireworks display to commemorate the July 4th holiday. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port, Maryland-National Capital Region or a designated representative. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: This rule is effective from 8 p.m. on July 4, 2021, through 11 p.m. on July 5, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port 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 it is impracticable and contrary to the public interest to publish an NPRM because we must take immediate action to establish this safety zone by July 4, 2021, to respond to potential safety hazards associated with the the fireworks display. Potential safety hazards include the accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. Event planners did not notify the Coast Guard of the event until June 17, 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. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable 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, Maryland—National PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Capital Region (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be used in this July 4, 2021, display will be a safety concern for anyone near these fireworks discharge sites. 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 scheduled event. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a temporary safety zone from 8 p.m. on July 4, 2021, to 11 p.m. on July 5, 2021. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters of the Upper Potomac River, including the Tidal Basin, encompassed by a line connecting the following points: Beginning at the shoreline of West Potomac Park at position latitude 38°53′04.2″ N, longitude 077°02′52.7″ W, thence southwest to latitude 38°52′57.1″ N, longitude 077°02′59.9″ W, thence southeast to the northern extent of the George Mason Bridge at latitude 38°52′36.9″ N, longitude 077°02′29.0″ W, thence northeast along the bridge to the shoreline at latitude 38°52′44.1″ N, longitude 077°02′21.8″ W, thence west and north along the shoreline to latitude 38°52′55.6″ N, longitude 077°02′15.0″ W, thence northwest across the Tidal Basin to the shoreline at latitude 38°53′11.3″ N, longitude 077°02′27.9″ W, thence south and west along the shoreline to and terminating at the point of origin located in Washington, DC. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled 9:09 to 9:20 p.m. fireworks display. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from 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. This rule has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this rule has not been reviewed by the E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1
