airspace description, the FAA identified
that the airport’s name and associated
ARP geographic coordinates were
incorrect. This action updates the
airport name and ARP geographic
coordinates to coincide with the FAA’s
aeronautical database information.
There are no changes to the boundaries,
altitudes, or air traffic control services
resulting from this action.
Class C airspace areas are published
in paragraph 4000 of FAA Order JO
7400.11F, dated August 10, 2021, and
effective September 15, 2021, which is
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR
71.1. The Class C airspace listed in this
document will be published
subsequently in the FAA Order JO
7400.11F.
Availability and Summary of
Documents for Incorporation by
Reference
This document amends FAA Order JO
7400.11F, Airspace Designations and
Reporting Points, dated August 10,
2021, and effective September 15, 2021.
FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly
available as listed in the
ADDRESSES
section of this document. FAA Order JO
7400.11F lists Class A, B, C, D, and E
airspace areas, air traffic service routes,
and reporting points.
The Rule
This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by
amending the Columbus, Port Columbus
International Airport, OH, Class C
airspace description to update the
airport name and associated ARP
geographic coordinates contained in the
description. The airport name ‘‘Port
Columbus International Airport’’ is
changed to ‘‘John Glenn Columbus
International Airport’’ and the
associated ARP geographic coordinates
for the airport are changed from ‘‘lat.
39°5946N, long. 82°5317W’’ to ‘‘lat.
39°5949N, long. 082°5332W’’. These
changes to the airport name and
associated ARP geographic coordinates
reflect the current information in the
FAA’s aeronautical database.
Additionally, minor administrative edits
to the legal description title and header
information were made for readability
and to comply with airspace legal
description policy guidance.
This is an administrative change and
does not affect the boundaries, altitudes,
or operating requirements of the
airspace. Therefore, notice and public
procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is
unnecessary.
FAA Order JO 7400.11, Airspace
Designations and Reporting Points, is
published yearly and effective on
September 15.
Regulatory Notices and Analyses
The FAA has determined that this
regulation only involves an established
body of technical regulations for which
frequent and routine amendments are
necessary to keep them operationally
current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a
‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a
‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of
Transportation (DOT) Regulatory
Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034;
February 26, 1979); and (3) does not
warrant preparation of a regulatory
evaluation as the anticipated impact is
so minimal. Since this is a routine
matter that only affects air traffic
procedures and air navigation, it is
certified that this rule, when
promulgated, does not have a significant
economic impact on a substantial
number of small entities under the
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
Environmental Review
The FAA has determined that this
action of making administrative edits to
the Columbus, OH, Class C airspace
description qualifies for categorical
exclusion under the National
Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C.
4321et seq.) and its implementing
regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, and in
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F,
Environmental Impacts: Policies and
Procedures, paragraph 5–6.5a, which
categorically excludes from further
environmental impact review
rulemaking actions that designate or
modify classes of airspace areas,
airways, routes, and reporting points
(see 14 CFR part 71, Designation of
Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas;
Air Traffic Service Routes; and
Reporting Points). As such, this action
is not expected to result in any
potentially significant environmental
impacts. In accordance with FAA Order
1050.1F, paragraph 5–2 regarding
Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA
has reviewed this action for factors and
circumstances in which a normally
categorically excluded action may have
a significant environmental impact
requiring further analysis. The FAA has
determined that no extraordinary
circumstances exist that warrant
preparation of an environmental
assessment or environmental impact
study.

NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking
§ Section
U.S.C. United States Code
II. Background Information and
Regulatory History
On November 17, 2021, Baltimore Gas
and Electric Company (BGE) notified
the Coast Guard that it will be
conducting activities associated with
the installation of new overhead power
transmission lines crossing over the
Patapsco River from the vicinity of the
Hawkins Point terminal Station on the
west side of the Patapsco River to a
location just north of Sollers Point
Terminal Station on the east side of the
Patapsco River, from 9 a.m. to 11:30
a.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on
December 3, 2021, and during the same
times on December 4, 2021. If necessary
due to inclement weather or other
reason on December 3, 2021, it will be
enforced from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and
from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on December
6, 2021. If necessary due to inclement
weather or other reason on December 4,
2021, it will be enforced from 9 a.m. to
11:30 a.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
on December 7, 2021. This installation
process requires the temporary closure
of the navigation channel near the
Francis Scott Key (I–695) Bridge and the
temporary closure of other portions of
the Patapsco River nearby.
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
good cause exists for not publishing a
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM)
with respect to this rule because it is
impracticable and contrary to public
interest to delay the effective date of this
rule. Immediate action is needed to
respond to the potential safety hazards
associated with the installation of new
overhead power transmission lines
crossing over the Patapsco River within
the navigation channel near the Francis
Scott Key (I–695) Bridge and other
portions of the Patapsco River nearby.
The Coast Guard was unable to publish
a NPRM due to the short time period
between project planners notifying the
Coast Guard of the work and publication
of this safety zone. It is impracticable
and contrary to the public interest to
publish an NPRM because we must
establish this safety zone by December
3, 2021.
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 needed to respond
to the potential safety hazards
associated with the installation of power
transmission lines over the Patapsco
River adjacent to Francis Scott Key (I–
695) Bridge conducted within the
federal navigation channel and other
portions of the river nearby. Such
hazards include low-hanging or falling
ropes and cables, helicopter rotor
downwash and noise, dangerous
projectiles, and or other debris.
III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule
The Coast Guard is issuing this rule
under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034
(previously 33 U.S.C. 1231). The COTP
Maryland-National Capital Region has
determined that potential hazards
associated with the overhead power
transmission line installation work will
be a safety concern for anyone transiting
the Patapsco River. This rule is needed
to ensure the safety of vessels and the
navigable waters in the safety zone
before, during, and after the scheduled
work.
IV. Discussion of the Rule
This rule establishes a safety zone
from 9 a.m. on December 3, 2021, to
3:30 p.m. on December 7, 2021. The
safety zone will be enforced from 9 a.m.
to 11:30 a.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3:30
p.m. on December 3, 2021, and during
the same times on December 4, 2021. If
necessary due to inclement weather or
other reason on December 3, 2021, it
will be enforced from 9 a.m. to 11:30
a.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on
December 6, 2021. If necessary due to
inclement weather or other reason on
December 4, 2021, it will be enforced
from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 1
p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on December 7, 2021.
The safety zone will cover all navigable
waters of the Patapsco River,
encompassed by a line connecting the
following points beginning at the
shoreline at Thoms Cove at position
latitude 39°1236N, longitude
076°3250W, thence east and south
along the shoreline to Hawkins Point at
latitude 39°1240N, longitude
076°3158W, thence northeast across
the Patapsco River to Coffin Point at
latitude 39°1355N, longitude
076°3018W, thence west and north
along the shoreline to Sollers Point at
latitude 39°1401N, longitude
076°3059W, thence west across the
Patapsco River to and terminating at the
point of origin, located at Baltimore,
MD.
The duration of the rule and
enforcement of the zone is intended to
ensure the safety of vessels and these
navigable waters while the activities
associated with the installation of new
overhead power transmission lines
crossing over the Patapsco River are
being conducted. The COTP will notify
the public that the safety zone will be
enforced by all appropriate means to the
affected segments of the public, as
practicable, in accordance with 33 CFR
165.7(a). Such means of notification
may also include, but are not limited to,
Broadcast Notice to Mariners. Vessels or
persons violating this rule are subject to
the penalties set forth in 46 U.S.C.
70036 (previously codified in 33 U.S.C.
1232) and 46 U.S.C. 70052 (previously
codified in 50 U.S.C. 192).
Except for craft and equipment
operated by BGE, or its subcontractors,
no vessel or person will be permitted to
enter the safety zone without obtaining
permission from the COTP or a
designated representative.
V. Regulatory Analyses
We developed this rule after
considering numerous statutes and
Executive orders related to rulemaking.
Below we summarize our analyses
VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:50 Nov 26, 2021 Jkt 256001 PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 E:\FR\FM\29NOR1.SGM 29NOR1
khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES
67653
Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 226 / Monday, November 29, 2021 / Rules and Regulations
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 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).
This regulatory action determination
is based on the size, duration, day-of-
week, and time of year of the safety
zone. Vessels or persons will not be
allowed to enter or transit a portion of
the Patapsco River for a total 10
enforcement-hours. Due to the nature of
the work and the hazards it presents to
the workers and the public, the COTP
has identified the need to close the
Patapsco River in the vicinity of the
overhead power line crossing while this
work is ongoing. Moreover, the Coast
Guard will issue Broadcast Notice to
Mariners via VHF–FM marine channel
16 about the 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 received no 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.
While some owners or operators of
vessels intending to transit the safety
zone may be small entities, for the
reasons stated in section V.A above, this
rule 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.
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, 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
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 a safety
zone lasting only 10 total enforcement
hours that will prohibit entry within
certain navigable waters of the Patapsco
River. It is categorically excluded from
further review under paragraph L60(c)
of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS
Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01,
Rev. 1.
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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: VA is
correcting its regulations, which
published under ‘‘Schedule for Rating
Disabilities: The Cardiovascular
System’’ (RIN 2900–AQ67), on
September 30, 2021, in the Federal
Register at 86 FR 54089. The error is
with § 4.100 Application of the general
rating formula for diseases of the heart.
VA removed left ventricular ejection
fraction (LVEF) from the general rating
formula for diseases of the heart but
failed to remove every reference to
LVEF in its evaluation criteria.
Paragraph (c) of § 4.100 of title 38 Code
of Federal Regulations (CFR) provides
instructions for addressing situations
where LVEF is not of record. These
instructions are no longer relevant
considering the removal of LVEF from
consideration in evaluating heart
diseases. VA is correcting that error by
removing paragraph (c).
