Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Village of Iliamna, AK, 40448-40450 [E6-11188]

Download as PDF 40448 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 136 / Monday, July 17, 2006 / Proposed Rules 700/1200 foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 in 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 designations 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. 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 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. 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 proposes to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing instrument procedures at St. Mary’s Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS1 List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

The intended effect of this proposal is to revise Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Iliamna Airport, AK. The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch has amended a SIAP for the Iliamna Airport. The approach is the Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 07, Amendment 2. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft and 1,200 ft. above the surface within the Iliamna Airport area would be revised by this action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are publishing this revised rule under the authority delegated by the Secretary of the Interior to the Assistant Secretary— Indian Affairs by 209 DM 8. Background The revised regulations clarify prior regulatory language, in keeping with the ‘‘plain language’’ standard required by Executive Order 12866. In revising this regulation, many sections of the regulation were identified as redundant or unnecessary and are proposed to be deleted. New sections have been added to comply with the Inspector General’s (IG) audit findings and to implement the provisions of the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996. Several IG audits, the most recent in 1996 (96–I–641), identified a management deficiency concerning full cost rates for operation and maintenance. Also, the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 established new procedures to manage monies owed the Federal Government. The revisions address both of these issues. The proposed revisions to 25 CFR part 171 were previously published on July 5, 1996 (61 FR 35167). Due to the length of time that has passed and changes to the proposed regulations, the proposed revisions are being published again for public comment. This republication is to provide a fresh start on the rulemaking process for this revision. Consultation meetings with the tribes that may be impacted by these regulations were held on August 24 and 26, 2004, and May 10 and 12, 2005. Additional consultation meetings with tribes may be scheduled during the comment period. These consultation meetings are in accordance with Executive Order 13175 and are for tribes and tribal members only. The general public and non-tribal members must submit their comments in accordance PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 with this document. Tribes and tribal members may also submit comments in accordance with this document. Procedural Requirements Regulatory Planning and Review (Executive Order 12866) This document is not a significant rule and the Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed this rule under Executive Order 12866. (1) This rule will not have an effect of $100 million or more on the economy. It will not adversely affect in a material way the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, local, or tribal governments or communities. This is an existing regulation that is being revised to implement the Inspector General’s audit findings and the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996. (2) This rule will not create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency. The irrigation projects impacted by these revisions are solely owned by the BIA and no other agency provides supplemental services or is impacted by the operation. (3) This rule does not alter the budgetary effects of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights or obligations of their recipients. The user fees or assessments that the BIA establishes at each irrigation project to recover its costs will eventually be impacted as the BIA reviews its rates and strives to implement full cost rates. (4) This rule does not raise novel legal or policy issues. No new authorities or policies are being established. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Department of the Interior certifies that this document will not have a significant economic effect on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). An initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is not required because Indian tribes are not considered to be small entities for purposes of this act. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. This rule: a. Does not have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more. The total revenue stream for the operation and maintenance of BIA irrigation projects is approximately $25 million annually. This is below the $100 million threshold. E:\FR\FM\17JYP1.SGM 17JYP1

System, which describes the application procedure.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to the Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR part 71), which would revise the Class E airspace 
at Iliamna Airport, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to 
revise Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the 
surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Iliamna 
Airport, AK.
    The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance 
Branch has amended a SIAP for the Iliamna Airport. The approach is the 
Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 
07, Amendment 2. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 
ft and 1,200 ft. above the surface within the Iliamna Airport area 
would be revised by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in 
size to contain aircraft executing the instrument procedures at the 
Iliamna Airport.
    The area would 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 700/1200 
foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 in 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 designations 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. 
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 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.
    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 proposes to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain 
aircraft executing instrument procedures at Iliamna Airport and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use 
the navigable airspace.
