                2020 Quarterly Listings; Safety Zones, Security Zones, and
                Special Local Regulations
                AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.
                ACTION: Notification of expired temporary rules issued.
                -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                SUMMARY: This document provides notification of substantive rules
                issued
                [[Page 15409]]
                by the Coast Guard that were made temporarily effective but expired
                before they could be published in the Federal Register. This document
                lists temporary safety zones, security zones, and special local
                regulations, all of limited duration and for which timely publication
                in the Federal Register was not possible.
                DATES: This document lists temporary Coast Guard rules that became
                effective, primarily between April 2020 and June 2020, unless otherwise
                indicated, and were terminated before they could be published in the
                Federal Register.
                ADDRESSES: Temporary rules listed in this document may be viewed
                online, under their respective docket numbers, using the Federal
                eRulemaking Portal at https://www.regulations.gov.
                FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions on this document contact
                Yeoman First Class Glenn Grayer, Office of Regulations and
                Administrative Law, telephone (202) 372-3862.
                SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Coast Guard District Commanders and Captains
                of the Port (COTP) must be immediately responsive to the safety and
                security needs within their jurisdiction; therefore, District
                Commanders and COTPs have been delegated the authority to issue certain
                local regulations. Safety zones may be established for safety or
                environmental purposes. A safety zone may be stationary and described
                by fixed limits or it may be described as a zone around a vessel in
                motion. Security zones limit access to prevent injury or damage to
                vessels, ports, or waterfront facilities. Special local regulations are
                issued to enhance the safety of participants and spectators at regattas
                and other marine events.
                 Timely publication of these rules in the Federal Register may be
                precluded when a rule responds to an emergency, or when an event occurs
                without sufficient advance notice. The affected public is, however,
                often informed of these rules through Local Notices to Mariners, press
                releases, and other means. Moreover, actual notification is provided by
                Coast Guard patrol vessels enforcing the restrictions imposed by the
                rule. Because Federal Register publication was not possible before the
                end of the effective period, mariners were personally notified of the
                contents of these safety zones, security zones, special local
                regulations, regulated navigation areas or drawbridge operation
                regulations by Coast Guard officials on-scene prior to any enforcement
                action. However, the Coast Guard, by law, must publish in the Federal
                Register notice of substantive rules adopted. To meet this obligation
                without imposing undue expense on the public, the Coast Guard
                periodically publishes a list of these temporary safety zones, security
                zones, special local regulations, regulated navigation areas and
                drawbridge operation regulations. Permanent rules are not included in
                this list because they are published in their entirety in the Federal
                Register. Temporary rules are also published in their entirety if
                sufficient time is available to do so before they are placed in effect
                or terminated.
                 The following unpublished rules were placed in effect temporarily
                during the period between April 2020 and June 2020 unless otherwise
                indicated. To view copies of these rules, visit www.regulations.gov and
