Download as PDF jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with PROPOSALS1 17246 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 59 / Monday, March 28, 2022 / Proposed Rules of the CFR, how prevalent are electronic chart display systems within the vessel class with which you are knowledgeable? For example, in your vessel class or industry, would you consider electronic chart display systems to be very uncommon, uncommon, somewhat common, common, or very common? For reference, the Coast Guard will attempt to quantify non-numerical responses to questions for the purposes of an economic analysis. We will consider ‘‘very uncommon’’ to represent an adoption rate of 20 percent or less; ‘‘uncommon’’ to represent an adoption rate between 20 and 40 percent; ‘‘somewhat common’’ to represent an adoption rate between 40 and 60 percent; ‘‘common’’ to represent an adoption rate between 60 and 80 percent; and ‘‘very common’’ to represent an adoption rate of 80 percent or greater. For us to better understand the context of your response, please provide the particular area of the maritime industry or vessel class that your estimate is for, and the basis for that estimate. Question 12a. If your vessel lacks the navigational equipment necessary to use and display ENC charts, what is your vessel type, what equipment are you currently lacking, and what would be the estimated cost of procuring and installing this equipment? Please let us know who would procure and set up the equipment, and provide an estimate for how long these processes would take. Will your company be able to use existing vessel or shoreside maintenance personnel, or will an outside marine electrician contractor or other technician have to be hired? Are there situations where retrofitting a vessel with such equipment may not be possible? If so, why and what vessel type? Question 12b. If the additional ENC equipment would require updates to your vessel’s electrical system, please provide an estimate of the expected costs to the vessel owner. If you cannot provide a cost estimate, what type of technician would perform the update to the electrical system and how long do you estimate that would take? Would the vessel need to be docked or out of service for any of the modifications described in this question? If so, for how long? Please indicate the type of vessel in your response. Question 13. How many hours per month do you currently spend updating paper charts? What are the costs of maintaining a corrected chart portfolio? How often do you replace paper charts? If you or your company make the updates internally who is in charge of VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 Mar 25, 2022 Jkt 256001 updating them (master, mate, shorebased company employee, etc.)? If you contract with a service, how much do you pay for the services provided? Question 14. What are the ongoing costs for the necessary electronic chart display system software, such as a charting application or subscription service? How often are technicians required to maintain or service the ECS and how much does this service cost? How often do you anticipate replacing or upgrading an electronic chart display system and what is the estimated cost to replace or upgrade it? Question 15. If the Coast Guard were to propose electronic chart and navigational equipment carriage requirements, what persons, entities, or organizations would be positively or negatively impacted? For example, a positive impact may include instances where an individual, vessel owner, or company may experience cost savings from time saved by no longer manually updating charts or an increase in revenue from selling electronic chart display systems or software, while a negative impact may result from an individual, vessel owner, or company taking on additional equipment costs to be in compliance. Question 16. Are there additional measures that should be considered to relieve an economic burden if the Coast Guard were to issue a rule to establish electronic chart and navigational equipment carriage requirements? What would you consider to be the expected costs and associated benefits of the additional measures? Please provide the data and calculations for the determination of such costs and/or benefits. Question 17. Because of the similarities between an RTCM Class ‘‘A’’ ECS and an ECDIS, NVIC 1–16 (Change 2) encourages mariners operating an RTCM Class ‘‘A’’ ECS to complete Coast Guard approved ECDIS training. For all other mariners operating other ECS systems NVIC 01– 16 (Change 2) identifies training topics for mariner familiarization. Is a Coast Guard approved ECDIS course appropriate training for mariners on vessels equipped with ECS? Should ECS specific training be required for officers in charge of a navigational watch on vessels equipped with ECS? What would you consider to be the estimated costs for such training?

Within this ‘‘show box,’’ the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Squadron will conduct aerobatic performances, exhibiting their aircraft’s maximum performance capabilities, over Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, during a 3-day period. Taking into account the hazards associated within this ‘‘show box’’ during the Squadron’s high powered multiple jet aircraft performances, and that Kaneohe Bay normally experiences heavy waterway traffic during the weekends, the COTP determined that a safety zone for the portions of the ‘‘show box’’ that extend beyond the Kaneohe Bay Naval Defensive Sea would be appropriate to ensure the safety of all watercraft and the general public during the Blue Angels’ performances. The Coast Guard is proposing this rulemaking under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The COTP proposes to establish a temporary safety zone while the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Squadron conducts aerobatic performances over Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, from 9:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m., August 12–14, 2022. This safety zone would encompass a small area of the Kaneohe Bay Naval Defensive Sea Area, including an area that extends approximately 200 yards northeast and 1000 yards southwest of the Naval Defensive Sea Area and is bound by the following points: 21°26.159′ N, 157°47.312′ W; then south to 21°25.890′ N, 157°47.250′ W; then northeast to 21°27.943′ N, 157°44.953′ W; then west to 21°28.016′ N, 157°45.250′ W; and returning southwest to the starting point. This safety zone will extend from the surface of the water to the ocean floor. These safety zones are necessary to protect watercraft and the general public from hazards associated with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels aircraft low flying, high powered jet aerobatics over open waters. Vessels requiring emergency transit through the zone may request permission by contacting the on scene Patrol Commander on VHF channel 16 (156.800 MHz) or the Honolulu Captain of the Port at telephone number 808– 842–2600. The regulatory text we are proposing appears at the end of this document. IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 Mar 25, 2022 Jkt 256001 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 NPRM has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM 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 zone. Vessels will be able to transit in the temporary safety zones with permission from the Honolulu COTP or his designated representative and transit around the zone freely. 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 proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Vessels will be allowed to transit in and around the temporary safety zones in Kaneohe Bay once permission to enter is granted. While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A above this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. Before the effective period, we will issue maritime advisories widely available to the Oahu maritime and tourist communities. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this rule would economically affect it. Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 17247 we want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed rule. If the proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. Collection of Information This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175 (Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments) because it would 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. If you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please call or email the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. 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 proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the potential effects of this proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble. E:\FR\FM\28MRP1.SGM 28MRP1 17248 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 59 / Monday, March 28, 2022 / Proposed Rules F. Environment We have analyzed this proposed 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 made a preliminary determination 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 proposed rule involves a safety zone that extends the Kaneohe Bay Naval Defensive Sea Area on both ends that would prevent vessels from entering the fight paths for the Air Show. Normally such actions are 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 preliminary 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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule. G.

    On January 27, 2022, Kaneohe Bay Air Show 2022 coordinators 
informed the

[[Page 17247]]

U.S. Coast Guard of a State of Hawaii approved Air Show plan that 
include an aerial performance ``show box'' extending beyond the Kaneohe 
Bay Naval Defensive Sea Area as established by Executive Order 8681 of 
February 14, 1941. Within this ``show box,'' the U.S. Navy Blue Angels 
Squadron will conduct aerobatic performances, exhibiting their 
aircraft's maximum performance capabilities, over Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, 
Hawaii, during a 3-day period. Taking into account the hazards 
associated within this ``show box'' during the Squadron's high powered 
multiple jet aircraft performances, and that Kaneohe Bay normally 
experiences heavy waterway traffic during the weekends, the COTP 
determined that a safety zone for the portions of the ``show box'' that 
extend beyond the Kaneohe Bay Naval Defensive Sea would be appropriate 
to ensure the safety of all watercraft and the general public during 
the Blue Angels' performances. The Coast Guard is proposing this 
rulemaking under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034 (previously 33 U.S.C. 
1231).

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The COTP proposes to establish a temporary safety zone while the 
U.S. Navy Blue Angels Squadron conducts aerobatic performances over 
Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, from 9:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m., August 12-
14, 2022. This safety zone would encompass a small area of the Kaneohe 
Bay Naval Defensive Sea Area, including an area that extends 
approximately 200 yards northeast and 1000 yards southwest of the Naval 
Defensive Sea Area and is bound by the following points: 21[deg]26.159' 
N, 157[deg]47.312' W; then south to 21[deg]25.890' N, 157[deg]47.250' 
W; then northeast to 21[deg]27.943' N, 157[deg]44.953' W; then west to 
21[deg]28.016' N, 157[deg]45.250' W; and returning southwest to the 
starting point. This safety zone will extend from the surface of the 
water to the ocean floor. These safety zones are necessary to protect 
watercraft and the general public from hazards associated with the U.S. 
Navy Blue Angels aircraft low flying, high powered jet aerobatics over 
open waters. Vessels requiring emergency transit through the zone may 
request permission by contacting the on scene Patrol Commander on VHF 
channel 16 (156.800 MHz) or the Honolulu Captain of the Port at 
telephone number 808-842-2600. The regulatory text we are proposing 
appears at the end of this document.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed 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 NPRM has not been designated a ``significant 
regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM 
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 zone. Vessels will be able to 
transit in the temporary safety zones with permission from the Honolulu 
COTP or his designated representative and transit around the zone 
freely.

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 
proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    Vessels will be allowed to transit in and around the temporary 
safety zones in Kaneohe Bay once permission to enter is granted. While 
some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the safety 
zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A 
above this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact 
on any vessel owner or operator. Before the effective period, we will 
issue maritime advisories widely available to the Oahu maritime and 
tourist communities.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed rule 
would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment 
(see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to 
what degree this rule would economically affect it.
    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 proposed rule. If the proposed 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. The Coast Guard will not 
retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this 
proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would 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 proposed 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 proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175 (Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments) because it would 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. If 
you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or 
Indian tribes, please call or email the person listed in the FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

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 proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the potential effects of 
this proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble.

[[Page 17248]]

F. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed 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 made 
a preliminary determination 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 proposed rule involves a safety 
zone that extends the Kaneohe Bay Naval Defensive Sea Area on both ends 
that would prevent vessels from entering the fight paths for the Air 
Show. Normally such actions are 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 preliminary 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. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the 
discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed 
rule.
