The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to part 71 of the Federal E:\FR\FM\11MYP1.SGM 11MYP1 27430 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 91 / Thursday, May 11, 2006 / Proposed Rules Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E airspace area at Forest Hill Airport, MD. The development of a SIAP to serve flights operating into the airport during IFR conditions makes this action necessary. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL is needed to accommodate the SIAP. Class E airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9N, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 16, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed 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 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 would only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to part 71 of the Federal

[[Page 27430]]

Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E airspace 
area at Forest Hill Airport, MD. The development of a SIAP to serve 
flights operating into the airport during IFR conditions makes this 
action necessary. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
AGL is needed to accommodate the SIAP. Class E airspace designations 
for airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the 
surface are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9N, dated 
September 1, 2005, and effective September 16, 2005, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in 
the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed 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 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 would only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not 
have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
