The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace area at Half Moon Bay Airport, Half Moon Bay, CA. The establishment of a RNAV (GPS) ZIAP to RWY 30 at Half Moon Bay PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Airport has made this proposal necessary. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is needed to contain aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) ZIAP to RWY 30 at Half Moon Bay Airport has made this proposal necessary. The intended effect of this proposal is to provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) ZIAP to RWY 30, Half Moon Bay Airport, CA. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9N dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 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 this 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 no 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The original comment period is set to close on June 26, 2006. The extension is based on concern expressed by the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (NCUTCD) that the June 26 closing date does not provide sufficient time for discussion of the issues in committee and a subsequent comprehensive response to the docket. The FHWA recognizes that others interested in commenting may have similar time constraints and agrees that the comment period should be extended. Therefore, the closing date for comments is changed to July 21, 2006, which will provide the NCUTCD and others interested in commenting additional time to discuss, evaluate, and submit responses to the docket.

Background On April 25, 2006, the FHWA published in the Federal Register a PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 34297 notice of proposed rulemaking proposing changes to 23 CFR 655, the regulations for traffic control devices on Federal-aid and other streets and highways. The NPRM proposed, along with other administrative changes, to update these regulations by deleting references to obsolete reference materials; clarifying the phrase ‘‘open to public travel’’ by providing examples of roads and other facilities meant to be covered by the regulations; clarifying that ‘‘substantial conformance’’ with the National MUTCD, as required under the regulations, means that the State MUTCD or supplement shall conform as a minimum to the standard statements included in the National MUTCD unless a variation is approved by the FHWA Division Administrator or FHWA Associate Administrator of the Federal Lands Highway Program; and, allowing States to adopt the National MUTCD within two years from the effective date of the final rule making such changes, rather than the issuance date of the final rule. The original comment period for the NPRM closes on June 26, 2006. The NCUTCD has expressed concern that this closing date does not provide sufficient time to review and discuss the proposed changes; and then, develop and submit complete responses to the docket. To allow time for this organization and others to submit comprehensive comments, the closing date is changed from June 26, 2006, to July 21, 2006.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 by modifying 
the Class E airspace area at Half Moon Bay Airport, Half Moon Bay, CA. 
The establishment of a RNAV (GPS) ZIAP to RWY 30 at Half Moon Bay 
Airport has made this proposal necessary. Additional controlled 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is needed to 
contain aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) ZIAP to RWY 30 at Half Moon 
Bay Airport has made this proposal necessary. The intended effect of 
this proposal is to provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft 
executing the RNAV (GPS) ZIAP to RWY 30, Half Moon Bay Airport, CA. 
Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA 
Order 7400.9N dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 
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 this 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 no 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 will only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
