ACTION: Temporary final rule. ddrumheller on DSK120RN23PROD with RULES1 AGENCY: The Coast Guard is extending the duration of a temporary safety zone for all navigable waters of the Ohio River from mile marker (MM) 487.0 to MM 489.0.

The Coast Guard was unable to publish an NPRM and hold a reasonable comment period for this rulemaking because it is impracticable due to the emergent nature of the continuing wire crossing operation and required publication of this extension. 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 immediate action is necessary to protect persons and property from the dangers associated with the static wire crossing operation.

United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History [FR Doc. 2023–10700 Filed 5–18–23; 8:45 am] SUMMARY: from potential hazards created by Duke Energy’s Static Wire Crossing operation taking place on the Ohio River from MM 487.0 to MM 489.0. Entry of vessel or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port, Sector Ohio Valley or a designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective without actual notice from May 19, 2023, through May 19, 2023. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from May 15, 2023, until May 19, 2023. ADDRESSES: To view documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket, go to https:// www.regulations.gov, type USCG–2023– 0216 in the search box and click ‘‘Search.’’ Next, in the Document Type column, select ‘‘Supporting & Related Material.’’ On May 1, 2023, the Coast Guard issued a temporary final rule establishing a safety zone on all waters of the Ohio River from MM 487.0 to 489.0 to protect persons, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by Duke Energy’s Static Wire Crossing operation (88 FR 28408, May 4, 2023). The original rule was effective through May 15, 2023. However, additional time is needed to conduct the static wire crossing, and, as a result, the Coast Guard needs to extend the safety zone through May 19, 2023. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034. The Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the Duke Energy’s Static Wire Crossing operation will be a safety concern for all navigable waters on the Ohio River from MM 487.0 to 489.0. This rule is needed to ensure the safety of life and vessels on these navigable waters. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule extends the effective dates of an established safety zone, originally established on May 1, 2023, and effective through May 15, 2023, through May 19, 2023. The safety zone includes all navigable waters of the Ohio River between MM 487.0 to 489.0. The extended duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the maritime environment in these navigable waters while static wire crossing operations are conducted.. No vessel or persons will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. Vessels may contact Sector Ohio Valley Command Center on VHF–FM Channel 16 or by telephone at 1–800–253–7465. Person and vessel permitted to enter this regulated area must transit at their slowest safe speed and comply with all lawful directions issued by the COTP or the 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 E:\FR\FM\19MYR1.SGM 19MYR1
