SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In October 2005, it was determined that continued operation of the Bishop, AK, NDB was in jeopardy at its current location because of riverbank erosion along the Yukon River to within 150 feet of the NDB site. The Bishop NDB was removed from service in early 2006 and action was taken by the FAA to reconfigure airways to exclude the Bishop NDB. The Bishop low altitude reporting point is no longer used by the FAA. 15:09 Jun 29, 2006 Jkt 208001 This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revoking the Bishop NDB low altitude reporting point. The Bishop low altitude reporting point no longer exists. Accordingly, since this action only involves a change in the legal description, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 533(b) are unnecessary. Alaska low altitude reporting points are published in paragraph 7004 of FAA Order 7400.9O dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The low altitude reporting points listed in this document will be removed subsequently in the Order. 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. Therefore, this regulation: (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 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.

Revocation of Low Altitude Reporting Point; AK

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action revokes the Bishop Nondirectional Radio Beacon 
(NDB) as an Alaskan low altitude reporting point. The FAA has 
determined that this reporting point should be removed from the 
National Airspace System (NAS), since the Bishop NDB was de-
commissioned and is no longer in service.

DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, September 28, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ken McElroy, Airspace and Rules,

Administration, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    In October 2005, it was determined that continued operation of the 
Bishop, AK, NDB was in jeopardy at its current location because of 
riverbank erosion along the Yukon River to within 150 feet of the NDB 
site. The Bishop NDB was removed from service in early 2006 and action 
was taken by the FAA to reconfigure airways to exclude the Bishop NDB. 
The Bishop low altitude reporting point is no longer used by the FAA.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by revoking the Bishop NDB low altitude reporting point. The 
Bishop low altitude reporting point no longer exists. Accordingly, 
since this action only involves a change in the legal description, 
notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 533(b) are unnecessary.
    Alaska low altitude reporting points are published in paragraph 
7004 of FAA Order 7400.9O dated September 1, 2006, and effective 
September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. 
The low altitude reporting points listed in this document will be 
removed subsequently in the Order.
    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. 
Therefore, this regulation: (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 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.
