II. Regulatory History

    This rule is subject to several exceptions from the regulatory 
procedure requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553. Before issuing this rule, the 
Coast Guard did not provide a notice of proposed rulemaking, because it 
is not required to do so because this rule involves rules of agency 
organization, procedure, or practice.\1\ Moreover, notice and comment 
is unnecessary because the rule does not change the impact on the 
public of any Coast Guard regulation, but only makes non-substantive 
organizational and conforming amendments. For that reason, the Coast 
Guard finds it has good cause to issue this rule without first giving 
the public an opportunity to comment,\2\ and to make the rule effective 
less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.\3\

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

III. Basis and Purpose

    The legal basis of this rule is found in 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 553; 
14 U.S.C. 2(3) and 631-633; 33 U.S.C. 471 and 499; and Department of 
Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.
    The purpose of this rule is to provide the public with more 
accurate and current regulatory information by making technical, 
organizational, and conforming amendments to existing regulations 
throughout Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations (33 CFR). This 
rule does not change the impact on the public of any Coast Guard 
regulation.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    Each year, the Coast Guard issues technical, organizational, and 
conforming amendments to existing regulations in 33 CFR. These annual 
``technical amendments'' provide the public with more accurate and 
current regulatory information, but do not change the impact on the 
public of any Coast Guard regulation.
    The rule makes changes in the following sections of 33 CFR:
    Sections 3.35-1, 3.35-35, 3.40-1(b), 3.40-10: Shift several Seventh 
and Eighth Coast Guard District boundaries so that they coincide with 
existing county political boundaries.
    Part 50 authority line: Change from ``Sec. 8, 18 Stat. 127, as 
amended, sec. 302, 58 Stat. 287, as amended; 14 U.S.C. 92, 38 U.S.C. 
693i'' to ``Sec. 10 U.S.C. 1554; 14 U.S.C. 92, 633; Department of 
Homeland Security Delegations No. 0160.1(II)(B)(1), 0170.1(II)(23)'' to 
conform to obsolete statutory references to current equivalents. 
Specifically, 18 Stat. 127 was superseded by 14 U.S.C. 92 and 633 in 
1949. Section 302 of 58 Stat. 287 was codified at 38 U.S.C. 693i; that 
section was later re-enacted as 10 U.S.C. 1553 and 1554 in Public Law 
85-857 in 1958.
    Sections 50.1, 50.3, 50.5, 50.6: Change ``officer'' to ``member or 
former member'' to reflect change to 10 U.S.C. 1554 authorization for 
Retiring Review Board.
    Part 51 authority line: Change from ``10 U.S.C. 1553; Pub. L. 107-
296, 116 Stat. 2135'' to ``10 U.S.C. 1553; 14

[[Page 44275]]

U.S.C. 92, 633; Department of Homeland Security Delegations No. 0160.1 
II(B)(1), 0170.1(II)(23),'' to omit public law that confers no 
rulemaking authority and to add 14 U.S.C. 92, which does confer that 
authority.
    Part 52 authority line: Add the Secretary's regulatory authority 
under 14 U.S.C. 92 and 633.
    Section 62.21(c): Reflect discontinuation of print publication of 
Light List, United States Coast Pilot, Local Notices to Mariners, and 
Notice to Mariners, in favor of electronic-only publication.
    Section 67.10-25(a): Update Coast Guard address information.
    Sections 72.01-5, 72.01-25(c), 72.01-40, 72.05-1(a), 72.05-5, 
72.05-10: Reflect discontinuation of print publication of Local Notices 
to Mariners, Notice to Mariners, in favor of electronic-only 
publication, and indicate in Sec.  72.05-1 that Volume V of the Light 
List is now published annually rather than biennially.
    Sections 80.155, 80.160, 80.165: Add geographical coordinates to 
the physical description of demarcation lines already in the 
regulations. The location of the demarcation lines is not affected.
    Sections 80.170, 80.501, 80.502: Redesignate sections to indicate 
that the area from Sandy Hook to Toms River, NJ, is within the Fifth, 
and not the First, Coast Guard District geographical area of 
responsibility (First District sections are designated Sec.  80.101 et 
seq., while Fifth District sections are designated Sec.  80.501 et 
seq.), and make wording changes to conform to Fifth District practice.
    Section 80.748(f): Change ``shoreland'' to ``shoreline'' to make 
consistent with Coast Guard terminology.
    Section 82.5: Change ``33 CFR 88.13'' to ``33 CFR 83.30(h)-(1)'' to 
conform to regulatory redesignation by 2014 final rule (79 FR 37898; 
Jul. 2, 2014).
    Section 83.09, 83.19(d), 83.24(h), 83.29(a)(iii), 83.34(d), 83.37: 
Minor rewordings and terminology revisions to conform to International 
Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS).
    Section 84.02(f)(ii): Change ``Sec.  84.03(d)'' to ``Sec.  
84.03(c),'' the correct location of the cited requirements, which 
concern situations when two all-round masthead lights are required. Two 
all-round masthead lights are discussed in Sec.  84.03(c) and not Sec.  
84.03(d), which only pertains to vessels with one masthead light.
    Section 90.5: Change ``33 CFR 88.13'' to ``33 CFR 83.30(h) through 
(1)'' to conform to regulatory redesignation.
    Part 96 authority line: Delete references to obsolete Department of 
Transportation delegations of regulatory authority.
    Section 100.1104, 100.1105: Reflect discontinuation of print 
publication of Local Notices to Mariners, in favor of electronic-only 
publication.
    Section 101.514(e): Remove paragraph that is obsolete because it 
incorporated a self-termination date of April 15, 2009.
    Section 110.215(b)(3): Change ``33 CFR 204.195'' to ``33 CFR 
334.930'' to correct cross-reference.
    Sections 117.591(e), 117.605(b), (c), 117.647(a), 117.855(c): 
Reflect change in bridge owner.
    Section 117.1081: Update telephone number.
    Section 150.940: Remove and redesignate material as the referenced 
deepwater port is no longer in existence.
    Section 151.1512: Change ``In order to'' to ``To''; ``U.S. waters'' 
to ``waters of the United States'' to conform to Coast Guard 
terminology; and in paragraph (b), in the phrase ``approved alternative 
ballast water management method per Sec.  151.1510(a)(1) and (4),'' 
remove ``alternative.'' Sections 1510(a) and 1512 (a) make it clear 
that Sec.  1510(a)(1) and (a)(4) are among the options provided by 
Sec.  1510(a), only one of which is to be selected by a vessel's 
master.
    Section 151.2035(a): Change the permitted alternative ``to ballast 
with water from a U.S. public water system'' to ``ballast exclusively 
with water from a U.S. public water system,'' for clarification. This 
is a non-substantive, clarifying change because Sec.  151.2025(a)(2) 
requires that the use of water from a U.S. public water system be 
exclusive.
    Section 151.2036: Change ``that despite all efforts to meet the 
ballast water discharge standard requirements in Sec.  151.2030 of this 
subpart, compliance is not possible'' to ``that, despite all efforts, 
compliance with the requirement under Sec.  151.2025 is not possible''. 
The change corrects the cross-reference, and reflects the fact that 
under existing regulations the master, owner, operator, agent, or 
person in charge of a vessel has several ballast water management 
methods by which he may achieve compliance with the ballast water 
discharge standard set forth in 33 CFR 151.2030.
    Section 155.480(b)(2): Revise internal cross-references to conform 
to regulatory redesignations made by a 2013 rule (78 FR 42642, Jul. 16, 
2013), which did not affect the meaning of the cross-references.
    Section 156.330(b): Change name of referenced publication to 
conform to name approved for incorporation by reference in 33 CFR 
156.111.
    Section 161.18(a): In table, remove and add punctuation for 
grammatical reasons.
    Section 161.60(c): Specify that a latitude coordinate refers to 
north latitude.
    Section 162.65(b), 162.75(b): Substitute ``Inland Navigation Rules 
(33 CFR Subchapter E)'' for references to Coast Guard Commandant 
Instruction Manual COMDTINST M16672.2D. The Manual reiterated the 
language of international navigational safety regulations (COLREGS) \4\ 
and the Inland Navigation Rules without change. It has been canceled in 
favor of referencing, in our regulations, the relevant international or 
inland rules. For Sec. Sec.  162.65(b), 162.75(b), the Inland 
Navigation Rules (33 CFR Subchapter E) provide the relevant rules.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Note on COLREGS: Several amendments to parts 162 and 165 
refer to the COLREGS (The Convention on the International 
Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, adopted by the 
forerunner to the International Maritime Organization in 1972 and 
replacing a 1960 edition). The COLREGS (including its rules and 
annexes) were incorporated into U.S. law and entered into force in 
the U.S. on July 15, 1977, as proclaimed by the President in 
accordance with the International Navigational Rules Act of 1977, 33 
U.S.C. 1602 (Pub. L. 95-75, Jul. 27, 1977, 91 Stat. 308). In 
accordance with Sec.  33 U.S.C. 1602(c), the President is also 
authorized to proclaim any amendments to the COLREGS. The text of 
the amendment, with its effective date as proclaimed by the 
President, is then published in the Federal Register. On its 
effective date, the amendment enters into force in the U.S. and has 
effect as if enacted by statute.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 162.90(b)(6): Remove ``the Pilot Rules for Inland Waters'' 
and substitute reference to Inland Navigation Rules, which now include 
the pilot rules.
    Section 164.03(e)(3): Remove an obsolete ``incorporation by 
reference'' document.
    Section 164.33(c), 164.72(b)(2)(ii)(B): Change ``National Imagery 
and Mapping Agency'' to its new agency name of ``National Geospatial-
Intelligence Agency''.
    Section 165.T01-0174(c)(9), 165.T01-0214(b)(6), 165.T01-0215(b)(5), 
165.T01-0329(b)(7), 165.T01-0554(b)(5), 165.T01-0824(b)(7), 165.T01-
0876(c)(7): Change ``Rules of the Road (33 CFR part 84--Subchapter E, 
inland navigational rules)'' to ``Inland Navigation Rules (33 CFR 
subchapter E)'' to correct current reference.
    Section 165.T01-1059(c)(1): Change ``Navigation Rules'' to ``Inland 
Navigation Rules (33 CFR subchapter E)'' to correct current reference.

in 33 CFR subchapter E, Inland Navigational Rules'' to ``Inland 
Navigation Rules (33 CFR subchapter E)'' to correct current reference.

and other aids to navigation to give their current names or Light List 
numbers, or to indicate their discontinuance; substitute reference to 
current regulatory location of COLREGS and Inland Navigation Rules for 
their former statutory locations.
    Section 165.122: In (b)(2) change ``Conimicut Point Light'' to its

``subchapter E'' to correct current reference.
    Section 165.153(d)(9): Change ``navigation rules'' to ``Navigation 
Rules (COLREGS and their associated annexes and the Inland Navigation

that removal has been completed.
    Section 165.173: In lines 6.1 and 8.1 of Table 165.173, insert 
inadvertently omitted information that specific event dates may be 
announced in the Local Notice to Mariners, and conform the punctuation 
in line 5.1 to match the punctuation inserted in lines 6.0 and 8.0.
    Section 165.511(c)(1): Change ``accordance with the Navigation

reference and agency name.

V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders (E.O.s) related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on these statutes or E.O.s.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 (``Regulatory Planning and Review'') and 
13563 (``Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review'') 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 (including potential economic, environmental, 
public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). 
Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both 
costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of 
promoting flexibility. The provisions of this final rule are technical 
and non-substantive; they will have no substantive effect on the public 
and will impose no additional costs. This final rule is not a 
significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of E.O. 12866 as 
supplemented by E.O. 13563, and does not require an assessment of 
potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of E.O. 12866. The 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not reviewed it under E.O. 
12866.

B. Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), rules 
exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative 
Procedure Act are not required to examine the impact of the rule on 
small entities. Nevertheless, we have considered whether this rule 
would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities. 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.
    There is no cost to this final rule, and we do not expect it to 
have an impact on small entities because the provisions of this rule 
are technical and non-substantive. It will have no substantive

[[Page 44277]]

effect on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, 
the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

    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 so that they can better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule 
would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please consult Mr. Paul Crissy by phone at 202-
372-1093 or via email at Paul.H.Crissy@uscg.mil. 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.
    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).

D. Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

E. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under E.O. 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 E.O. 13132.

F. 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 1 year. Though this rule will not result in 
such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

    This final rule will not cause a taking of private property or 
otherwise have taking implications under E.O. 12630 (``Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights'').

H. Civil Justice Reform

    This final rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 
3(b)(2) of E.O. 12988 (``Civil Justice Reform''), to minimize 
litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this final rule under E.O. 13045 (``Protection of 
Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks''). This 
final rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create 
an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

    This final rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 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.

K. Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this final rule under E.O. 13211 (``Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use''). We have determined that it is not a 
``significant energy action'' under that order because it is not a 
``significant regulatory action'' under E.O. 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of OMB's Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under E.O. 13211.

L. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (15 U.S.C. 272 
Note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their 
regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the 
OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be 
inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary 
consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of 
materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling 
procedures; and related management systems practices) that are 
developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.
    This final rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did 
not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

M. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded 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 is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2 and figure 2-1, 
paragraphs (34)(a) and (b) of the Instruction. This final rule involves 
regulations that are editorial or procedural, or that concern internal 
agency functions or organizations. An environmental analysis checklist 
and a categorical exclusion determination are available in the docket 
for this final rule where indicated under ADDRESSES.
