Special Local Regulations; Recurring Marine Events, Sector Miami

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is revising existing regulations and 
consolidating into one table special local regulations for recurring 
marine events at various locations within the geographic boundaries of 
the Seventh Coast Guard District Captain of the Port (COTP) Miami Zone.

II. Background Information and Regulatory History

    Recurring boat races, swims, and other marine events within the 
Seventh Coast Guard District are currently listed in 33 CFR 100.701, 
Table to Sec.  100.701. The process for amending the table (e.g. adding 
or removing marine events) is lengthy and inefficient since it includes 
recurring marine events for seven different COTP zones within the 
Seventh District. To expedite and simplify the rulemaking process for 
new marine events/special local regulations, COTP's resorted to 
creating individual rules rather than amending Table to Sec.  100.701.
    This rule serves two purposes: (1) Create a table of recurring 
marine events/special local regulations occurring solely within the 
COTP Miami Zone, and (2) consolidate into that table marine events/
special local regulations previously established outside of Table to 
Sec.  100.701. These revisions facilitate management of and public 
access to information about marine events and special local regulations 
within the COTP Miami Zone.
    The Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on 
October 2, 2019 titled, ``Special Local Regulations; Recurring Marine 
Events, Sector Miami'' (84 FR 52411). There we stated why we published 
the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory. During the 
comment period that ended November 1, 2019, the Coast Guard did not 
receive any comments.

II. Legal Authority and Need for Rule

    The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 46 U.S.C. 
70041. The COTP Miami has determined that creating a table of recurring 
marine events/special local regulations occurring within the COTP Miami 
Zone, and consolidating into that table marine events/special local 
regulations in new Table 1 to Sec.  100.702, which were listed in Table 
to Sec.  100.701 will facilitate management of and public access to 
information about marine events within the COTP Miami Zone.

IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule

    As noted above, the Coast Guard did not receive any comments on the 
NPRM published October 2, 2019. Other than inserting a ``1'' in the 
table headings in Sec.  100.701 and Sec.  100.702, and renumbering 
event-date designators in Table 1 to Sec.  100.702, there are no 
changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in 
the NPRM.
    This rule creates a table of recurring marine events/special local 
regulations occurring solely within the COTP

[[Page 8398]]

Miami Zone, and consolidates into new Table 1 to Sec.  100.702 marine 
events/special local regulations, which were previously listed in Table 
to Sec.  100.701. These revisions will facilitate management of and 
public access to information about marine events within the COTP Miami 
Zone.

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. Executive Order 13771 directs agencies to control 
regulatory costs through a budgeting process. 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), and pursuant to OMB guidance it is exempt 
from the requirements of Executive Order 13771.
    This regulatory action determination is based on the minimal 
effects of the rule. The rule is an administrative action only intended 
to facilitate management of and public access to information about 
marine events and special local regulations within the COTP Miami 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 did not receive any 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.
    As stated in section V.A above, this rule is an administrative 
action only intended to better manage information and 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. If 
you believe this 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 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 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 an administrative reorganization of 
established special local regulations for recurring marine events 
within the COTP Miami Zone. Normally such actions are categorically 
excluded from further review under paragraphs L61 in Table 3-1 of U.S. 
Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1. A 
Memorandum for the Record for Categorically Excluded Actions supporting 
this determination is available in the docket where indicated in 
ADDRESSES.

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.

3. Add Sec.  100.702 to read as follows:


Sec.  100.702  Special Local Regulations; Marine Events within the 
Captain of the Port Miami.

    The following regulations apply to the marine events listed in 
Table 1 of this section and will be effective annually for the duration 
listed. The Coast Guard will notify the maritime community of exact 
dates and times each regulation will be in effect and the nature of 
each event (e.g. location, number of participants, type of vessels 
involved, etc.) through a Notice of Enforcement published in the 
Federal Register, Local Notice to Mariners, and Broadcast Notice to 
Mariners.
    (a) Definitions. The following definitions apply to this section:
    (1) Designated Representative. The term ``Designated 
Representative'' means Coast Guard Patrol Commanders, including Coast 
Guard coxswains, petty officers, others operating Coast Guard vessels, 
and federal, state, and local officers designated by or assisting the 
Captain of the Port (COTP) Miami in the enforcement of the regulated 
areas.
    (2) Spectators. All persons and vessels not registered with the 
event sponsor as participants.
    (b) Event Patrol. The Coast Guard may assign an event patrol, as 
described in Sec.  100.40 of this part, to each regulated event listed 
in the table. Additionally, a Patrol Commander may be assigned to 
oversee the patrol. The event patrol and Patrol Commander may be 
contacted on VHF Channel 16.
    (c) Special Local Regulations. (1) The COTP Miami or Designated 
Representative may control the movement of all vessels in the regulated 
area. When hailed or signaled by an official patrol vessel, a vessel in 
these areas shall immediately comply with the directions given. Failure 
to do so may result in removal from the area, citation for failure to 
comply, or both.
    (2) The COTP Miami or Designated Representative may terminate the 
event, or the operation of any vessel participating in the event, at 
any time it is deemed necessary for the protection of life or property.
    (3) Only event sponsor designated participants and official patrol 
vessels are allowed to enter the regulated area, unless otherwise 
authorized by the COTP Miami or Designated Representative.
    (4) Spectators may request permission from the COTP Miami or 
Designated Representative to enter, transit, remain within, or anchor 
in the regulated area. If permission is granted, spectators must abide 
by the directions of the COTP Miami or a Designated Representative. The 
COTP Miami or Designated Representative may delay or terminate any 
event in this subpart at any time to ensure safety of life or property. 
Such action may be justified as a result of weather, traffic density, 
spectator operation, or participant behavior.
