SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: History On Wednesday, April 5, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to revise Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Huslia, AK (71 FR 17039). The action was proposed in order to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing one new and two amended SIAPs for the Huslia Airport. The new approach is the Very High Frequency Omni-directional Range (VOR)/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) RWY 03. The amended approaches are (1) Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) RWY 03, Amendment (Amdt.) One and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 21, Amdt. One. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface in the Huslia Airport area is revised by this action. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No public comments have been received; thus the rule is adopted as proposed. The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American Datum 83. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1,200 ft. transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9N, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, 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 will be published subsequently in the Order. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with RULES The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 revises Class E airspace at the Huslia Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is revised to accommodate aircraft executing one new and two revised SIAPs, and will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended effect of this rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:59 Jun 16, 2006 Jkt 208001 Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations at Huslia Airport, Alaska. 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 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 a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle 1, section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in subtitle VII, part A, subpart 1, section 40103, Sovereignty and use of airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it creates Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing instrument procedures for the Huslia Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 208001 This document contains amendments to the Employment Tax Regulations (26 CFR part 31) under sections 3102, 3121(a), 3121(a)(7), 3121(a)(8), 3121(a)(10), and 3121(i) of the Code. The Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) generally imposes tax on each employer and employee. Under section 3111, FICA tax is imposed on the employer in an amount equal to a percentage of the wages paid by that employer. Under section 3101, FICA tax is also imposed on the employee in an amount equal to a percentage of the wages received by the employee with respect to employment. Section 3102 requires the employer to collect the tax imposed under section 3101 by deducting and withholding the amount of the tax from the wages as and when paid. Section 3121(a) defines wages for FICA tax purposes as all remuneration for employment unless otherwise excepted. Sections 3121(a)(7) (relating to domestic service in a private home of the employer and to service not in the course of the employer’s trade or business), 3121(a)(8) (relating to agricultural labor) and 3121(a)(10) (relating to service performed as a home worker within the meaning of section 3121(d)(3)(C)) provide exceptions to the definition of wages for FICA tax purposes. Section 3121(i)(1) provides that in the case of domestic service described in section 3121(a)(7)(B), any payment of cash remuneration for such service which is more or less than a whole-dollar amount, to the extent prescribed by regulations, may be computed to the nearest dollar. Proposed regulations under sections 3102, 3121(a), 3121(a)(7), 3121(a)(8), 3121(a)(10), and 3121(i) were published in the Federal Register (70 FR 50228– 01) on August 26, 2005, and corrected in the Federal Register (70 FR 54680– PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 35153 01) on September 16, 2005. No written or electronic comments responding to the notice of proposed rulemaking were received. No public hearing was requested or held. Accordingly, the proposed regulations are adopted by this Treasury decision. Explanation of Provisions These final regulations amend the existing regulations to reflect current law.

The final regulations relating to payments for agricultural labor amend existing regulations §§ 31.3102–1, 31.3121(a)–2(c) and 31.3121(a)(8)–1 to reflect changes implemented by the Social Security Protection Act of 2004 (SSPA), Public Law 108–203 (118 Stat. 493, 536), the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987 (the 1987 Act), Public Law 100–203 (101 Stat. 1330, 1330–287), and the Technical and Miscellaneous Revenue Act of 1988 (the 1988 Act), Public Law 100–647 (102 Stat. 3342, 3793), and to be applicable to cash remuneration paid on or after January 1, 1988 (the effective date of the 1987 Act and the 1988 Act).
