SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On May 25, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal 
regulations part 71 (CFR part 71) by establishing Class E airspace at 
Chehalis, WA, (70 FR 30034). The proposed action would provide 
additional controlled airspace to accommodate the new RNAV GPS SIAP at 
the Chehalis-Centralia Airport. Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rule making proceeding by submitting written 
comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E 
airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.9M dated august 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
that order.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at 
Chehalis, WA, by providing additional controlled airspace for aircraft 
executing the new RNAV GPS SIAP at the Chelialis-Centralia Airport. 
This additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or 
more above the surface is necessary for the containment and safety of 
IFR aircraft executing this SIAP procedure and transitioning to/from 
the en route environment.
    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 the regulations current. 
Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' 
under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11054, 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory flexibility Act
