Final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is amending and updating its safety zone regulations for annual events that take place in the Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley area of responsibility (AOR). This action is necessary to update the current list of recurring safety zones with revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in the Sector Ohio Valley. When these safety zones are enforced, certain restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: This rule is effective February 3, 2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [FR Doc. 2022–01947 Filed 2–2–22; 8:45 am] ACTION: Chattanooga, TN .......................... ADDRESSES: Dated: January 26, 2022 A.M. Beach, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley. Jkt 256001 AOR Area of Responsibility COTP Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security E.O. Executive Order FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History The Captain of Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) is amending 33 CFR 165.801 to update the table of annual fireworks displays and other events in Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley Area of Responsibility (AOR). These events include air shows, fireworks displays, and other events requiring a safety zone. On December 6, 2021, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled, Safety Zones; PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Regulated area Sfmt 4700 Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley Annual and Recurring Safety Zones Update (86 FR 68948). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to those recurring safety zones. During the comment period that ended on January 5, 2022, no comments were received. 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 Coast Guard is amending and updating the safety zones under 33 CFR part 165 to include the most up to date list of recurring safety zones for events held on or around navigable waters within the Sector Ohio Valley AOR. These events include fireworks displays, air shows, and festivals. The current list in 33 CFR 165.801 requires amending to provide new information on existing safety zones and to include new safety zones expected to recur annually or biannually. Issuing individual regulations for each new safety zone, amendment of existing safety zones creates unnecessary administrative costs and burdens. This rulemaking reduces administrative overhead and provides the public with notice through publication in the Federal Register of the upcoming recurring safety zones. Based on the nature of these events, large numbers of participants and spectators, and event locations, the COTP has determined that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to participants or waterways users if the E:\FR\FM\03FER1.SGM 03FER1 6032 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 23 / Thursday, February 3, 2022 / Rules and Regulations normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the events. Possible hazards include risks of injury or death from near or actual contact among participant vessels and spectators or mariners traversing through the regulated area. This purpose of this rule is to ensure the safety of all waterway users, including event participants and spectators, during the scheduled events. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM published December 6, 2021. There is one change in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. The event Thunder Over Louisville will occur the 4th weekend of April this year. The text now reads in the table: 2 days—Third or fourth Friday and Saturday in April. The change is within the scope of the originally proposed event. This rule amends and updates part 165 of 33 CFR by revising the current table for Sector Ohio Valley, and by adding two new recurring safety zones, removing four safety zones, and amending 1 safety zone as described in the NPRM. Vessels intending to transit the designated waterway through the safety zone will only be allowed to transit the area when the COTP, or designated representative, has deemed it safe to do so or at the completion of the event. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES 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 safety zones. These safety zones are limited in size and duration, and are usually positioned away from high vessel traffic areas. Moreover, the Coast Guard would issue a Broadcast Notices to Mariners, Local VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Feb 02, 2022 Jkt 256001 Notices to Mariners, and Marine Safety Information Broadcasts to inform the community of these safety zones. 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). PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L60 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.

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.

[Docket Number USCG-2021-0874]
RIN 1625-AA00


Safety Zones; Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley Annual and Recurring 
Safety Zones Update

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is amending and updating its safety zone 
regulations for annual events that take place in the Coast Guard Sector 
Ohio Valley area of responsibility (AOR). This action is necessary to 
update the current list of recurring safety zones with revisions, 
additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in 
the Sector Ohio Valley. When these safety zones are enforced, certain 
restrictions are placed on marine traffic in specified areas.

DATES: This rule is effective February 3, 2022.

CFR Code of Federal Regulations
DHS Department of Homeland Security
E.O. Executive Order
FR Federal Register
NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking
Sec.  Section

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    The Captain of Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) is amending 33 CFR 
165.801 to update the table of annual fireworks displays and other 
events in Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley Area of Responsibility (AOR). 
These events include air shows, fireworks displays, and other events 
requiring a safety zone.
    On December 6, 2021, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) titled, Safety Zones; Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley 
Annual and Recurring Safety Zones Update (86 FR 68948). There we stated 
why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory 
action related to those recurring safety zones. During the comment 
period that ended on January 5, 2022, no comments were received.

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 Coast Guard is amending and 
updating the safety zones under 33 CFR part 165 to include the most up 
to date list of recurring safety zones for events held on or around 
navigable waters within the Sector Ohio Valley AOR. These events 
include fireworks displays, air shows, and festivals. The current list 
in 33 CFR 165.801 requires amending to provide new information on 
existing safety zones and to include new safety zones expected to recur 
annually or biannually. Issuing individual regulations for each new 
safety zone, amendment of existing safety zones creates unnecessary 
administrative costs and burdens. This rulemaking reduces 
administrative overhead and provides the public with notice through 
publication in the Federal Register of the upcoming recurring safety 
zones. Based on the nature of these events, large numbers of 
participants and spectators, and event locations, the COTP has 
determined that the events listed in this rule could pose a risk to 
participants or waterways users if the

[[Page 6032]]

normal vessel traffic were to interfere with the events. Possible 
hazards include risks of injury or death from near or actual contact 
among participant vessels and spectators or mariners traversing through 
the regulated area. This purpose of this rule is to ensure the safety 
of all waterway users, including event participants and spectators, 
during the scheduled events.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM published 
December 6, 2021. There is one change in the regulatory text of this 
rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. The event Thunder Over 
Louisville will occur the 4th weekend of April this year. The text now 
reads in the table: 2 days--Third or fourth Friday and Saturday in 
April. The change is within the scope of the originally proposed event.
    This rule amends and updates part 165 of 33 CFR by revising the 
current table for Sector Ohio Valley, and by adding two new recurring 
safety zones, removing four safety zones, and amending 1 safety zone as 
described in the NPRM. Vessels intending to transit the designated 
waterway through the safety zone will only be allowed to transit the 
area when the COTP, or designated representative, has deemed it safe to 
do so or at the completion of the event.

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 safety zones. These safety zones are 
limited in size and duration, and are usually positioned away from high 
vessel traffic areas. Moreover, the Coast Guard would issue a Broadcast 
Notices to Mariners, Local Notices to Mariners, and Marine Safety 
Information Broadcasts to inform the community of these safety zones.

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. It is categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraph L60 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.
