Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley 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 On June 17, 2021, the Historic Newburgh, Inc notified the Coast Guard that it will be conducting a fireworks display from 9:30 p.m. though 10 p.m. on September 4, 2021. The fireworks are to be launched from the shore of the Ohio River at approximately mile marker (MM) 777.3 to MM 778.3. Hazards from firework displays include accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. The Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be used in this display would be a safety concern for anyone on a one-mile stretch of the Ohio River. In response, on July, 2, 2021, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ‘‘Safety Zone; Ohio River, Newburgh, IN’’ docket number USCG–2021–0451 (86 FR 35242). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this fireworks display. During the comment period that ended August 2, 2021, we received 1 comment. 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 and contrary to the public interest because we must establish the safety zone by September 4, 2021 to protect the public from the potential hazards associated with the fireworks event on that date. 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 Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be used in this September 4, 2021 display will be a safety concern for anyone within the area. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the safety zone before, during, and after the scheduled event. PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 46781 IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received one comment on our NPRM published July 2, 2021. The comment was from a citizen concerned about environmental impact of this firework display. The environmental concerns raised by the commenter appear to be in regards to the potential dangers to the environment from the fireworks, and not the environmental impact of this safety zone. The Coast Guard is not sponsoring or conducting the fireworks; we are only establishing a safety zone around the display to protect persons and property from hazards associated with the display. During the development of this temporary final rule, the Coast Guard underwent an environmental review process and determined this safety zone fit a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act as explained in greater detail in paragraph F of this document. The Coast Guard duly considered the environmental impacts in our decision to authorize the safety zone as part of the decision making process. No changes have been made to the final rule regulatory text from what was proposed in the NPRM. This rule establishes a safety zone from 9:30 p.m. through 10 p.m. on September 4, 2021. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters, extending the entire width of the Ohio River from MM 777.3 to MM 778.3. The duration of the zone is intended to ensure the safety of vessels and these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled 9:30 p.m. to 10 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\20AUR1.SGM 20AUR1 46782 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 159 / Friday, August 20, 2021 / Rules and Regulations khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES Office of Management and Budget (OMB). This regulatory action determination is based on the size, location, and duration of the temporary safety zone. This safety zone restricts transit on a one-mile stretch of the Ohio River for thirty minutes on one day. Morever, the Coast Guard would issue Broadcast Notice to Mariners (BNMs), Local Notices to Mariners (LNMs), and Marine Safety Information Bulletins (MSIBs) about this safety zone so that waterway users may plan accordingly for this short restriction on transit, and the rule would allow vessels to request 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 received no comments from the Small Business Administration on this rulemaking. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:42 Aug 19, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 zone lasting 30 minutes that will prohibit entry within a one-mile stretch of the Ohio River for one day. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) of 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. 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.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: In this document, the Federal Communication Commission (the FCC or Commission), implements section 9201 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, improving the way the public receives emergency alerts from the nation’s Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts System (WEA) on their mobile phones, televisions, and radios. The Commission adopts rules to ensure that more people receive relevant emergency alerts, to enable EAS and WEA participants to report false alerts when they occur, and to improve the way states plan for emergency alerts. DATES: Effective September 20, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christopher Fedeli, Attorney Advisor, Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau at 202–418–1514 or Christopher.Fedeli@fcc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This is a summary of the Commission’s Report and Order (Order) and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, in PS Docket Nos. 15–94 and 15–91, FCC 21–77, adopted and released on June 17, 2021. The full text of this document is available at https://www.fcc.gov/ document/fcc-further-strengthensemergency-alerting-0. SUMMARY: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES Synopsis In the Report and Order (Order), the Commission takes measures to enhance the efficacy of the EAS and WEA. The nation’s EAS and WEA ensure that the public is quickly informed about emergency alerts issued by federal, state, local, Tribal, and territorial governments and delivered over the radio, television, and mobile wireless devices. Specifically, and in VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:42 Aug 19, 2021 Jkt 253001 consultation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Commission implements Section 9201 of the William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, Public Law 116–283, 134 Stat. 3388, § 9201 (NDAA21), which requires the Commission to complete a rulemaking and adopt rules within 180 days to (a) ensure mobile devices cannot opt out of receiving WEA alerts from the FEMA Administrator; (b) establish a state EAS plan checklist for State Emergency Communications Committees (SECCs) and amend the requirements for SECCs, to ensure they meet, review, and update their EAS plans annually; (c) enable reporting by the FEMA Administrator and State, Tribal, or local governments of false EAS and WEA alerts; and (d) provide for repeating EAS alerts issued by the President, the FEMA Administrator, and any other entity determined appropriate by the Commission, in consultation with the FEMA Administrator. The Commission believes the rules it adopts today will improve the capabilities and efficacy of EAS and WEA as systems for distributing vital alert information to all Americans, and will do so in a costeffective manner. The Commission implements section 9201(a) of the NDAA21 by adopting rules to ensure that mobile devices cannot opt-out of receiving WEA alerts from the FEMA Administrator. The Commission implements section 9201(b) of the NDAA21 by adopting rules to (i) encourage chief executives of states and territories to form SECCs if none exist in their states, or if the state has an SECC, to review its composition and governance criteria; (ii) include as a required element in the State EAS Plan, a certification by the SECC Chairperson or Vice-Chairperson that the SECC met (in person, via teleconference, or via other methods of conducting virtual meetings) at least once in the twelve months prior to submitting the annual updated plan to review and update their State EAS Plan—and incorporate such certification into the Alert Reporting System (ARS); (iii) require that the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (Bureau) to approve or reject State EAS Plans submitted for approval within 60 days of receipt—for those instances in which the Bureau finds defects in a submitted plan requiring correction by the SECC, that State EAS Plan will be considered to be temporarily withdrawn, restarting the 60-day review and approval period anew upon resubmission of the corrected plan in ARS; (iv) require the PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 46783 Bureau to list the approval dates of State EAS Plans submitted on ARS on the Commission’s website, and in the event a final decision is made to deny a plan, directly notify the chief executive of the State to which the plan applies of that determination and the reasons for such denial within 30 days of such decision; and (v) adopt an EAS Plan Content Checklist composed of the plan content requirements set forth in § 11.21 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 11.21, and direct the Bureau to post the checklist on the Commission’s website and incorporate it as an appendix in the ARS user manual. The Commission implements section 9201(c) of the NDAA21 by adopting rules to enable the Administrator of FEMA and state, local, Tribal, and territorial governments to report false EAS and WEA alerts when they occur. The Commission implements section 9201(d) of the NDAA21 by adopting a rule specifying how alert originators can repeat their alert transmissions. The rules the Commission adopts are intended to facilitate the further development of a robust and redundant system for distributing vital alert information to all Americans.

Regulatory Flexibility Analysis As required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, as amended (RFA), an Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis (IRFA) was incorporated in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in PS Docket Nos. 15–94 and 15–91, 86 FR 16565 (Mar. 30, 2021). The Commission sought written public comment on the proposals in the NPRM, including comment on the IRFA. No comments were filed addressing the IRFA. This present Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis (FRFA) conforms to the RFA. A. Need for, and Objectives of, the Final Rules In the Order, the Commission adopts rules to improve the way the public receives emergency alerts on their mobile phones, televisions, and radios via WEA and EAS, in response to the William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021. WEA and EAS ensure that the public is quickly informed about emergency alerts issued by federal, E:\FR\FM\20AUR1.SGM 20AUR1

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    On June 17, 2021, the Historic Newburgh, Inc notified the Coast 
Guard that it will be conducting a fireworks display from 9:30 p.m. 
though 10 p.m. on September 4, 2021. The fireworks are to be launched 
from the shore of the Ohio River at approximately mile marker (MM) 
777.3 to MM 778.3. Hazards from firework displays include accidental 
discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers 
or other debris. The Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) has 
determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be 
used in this display would be a safety concern for anyone on a one-mile 
stretch of the Ohio River. In response, on July, 2, 2021, the Coast 
Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ``Safety 
Zone; Ohio River, Newburgh, IN'' docket number USCG-2021-0451 (86 FR 
35242). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on 
our proposed regulatory action related to this fireworks display. 
During the comment period that ended August 2, 2021, we received 1 
comment.
    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 and contrary to the public interest 
because we must establish the safety zone by September 4, 2021 to 
protect the public from the potential hazards associated with the 
fireworks event on that date.

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 Ohio 
Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the 
fireworks to be used in this September 4, 2021 display will be a safety 
concern for anyone within the area. The purpose of this rule is to 
ensure safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the safety zone 
before, during, and after the scheduled event.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, we received one comment on our NPRM published July 
2, 2021. The comment was from a citizen concerned about environmental 
impact of this firework display. The environmental concerns raised by 
the commenter appear to be in regards to the potential dangers to the 
environment from the fireworks, and not the environmental impact of 
this safety zone. The Coast Guard is not sponsoring or conducting the 
fireworks; we are only establishing a safety zone around the display to 
protect persons and property from hazards associated with the display. 
During the development of this temporary final rule, the Coast Guard 
underwent an environmental review process and determined this safety 
zone fit a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental 
Policy Act as explained in greater detail in paragraph F of this 
document. The Coast Guard duly considered the environmental impacts in 
our decision to authorize the safety zone as part of the decision 
making process. No changes have been made to the final rule regulatory 
text from what was proposed in the NPRM.
    This rule establishes a safety zone from 9:30 p.m. through 10 p.m. 
on September 4, 2021. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters, 
extending the entire width of the Ohio River from MM 777.3 to MM 778.3. 
The duration of the zone is intended to ensure the safety of vessels 
and these navigable waters before, during, and after the scheduled 9:30 
p.m. to 10 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

[[Page 46782]]

Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
    This regulatory action determination is based on the size, 
location, and duration of the temporary safety zone. This safety zone 
restricts transit on a one-mile stretch of the Ohio River for thirty 
minutes on one day. Morever, the Coast Guard would issue Broadcast 
Notice to Mariners (BNMs), Local Notices to Mariners (LNMs), and Marine 
Safety Information Bulletins (MSIBs) about this safety zone so that 
waterway users may plan accordingly for this short restriction on 
transit, and the rule would allow vessels to request 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 received no comments from the Small Business 
Administration on this rulemaking. 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 30 minutes that will prohibit entry within a one-
mile stretch of the Ohio River for one day. It is categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph L60(a) of 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. 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.
